Conclusions

The Denon AVR-1909 is one heck of a receiver. Considering what the features on the Denon would have cost just a year or so ago, it offers a great value at $649. Aside from its great theater sound, with features including the latest HDMI video processing, Audyssey audio optimization and the support of the latest surround formats, this is a receiver I had no trouble living with the past few months. If the minor shortcomings I discovered aren’t a concern for you: an HDMI input or two short of ideal, the lack of amplification upgrade path, a poor remote and an unpolished OSD interface, I would not hesitate to add the Denon AVR-1909 to your system.
