Hi,

What do you all think of Denon DHT-591B


I am planning to buy this along with the rear wireless kit.

One gripe I have is that this does not come with an ipod/iphone dock.

Please suggest.

Thanks
Ron

No reciever comes with iphone/ipod jack as standard except for the Pioneer VSX-820/920/1019/1020/1120

What is the size of your room?

The room approx 20 X 10

I just purchased the pioneer VSX-1020 from Amazon and got a free bluetooth iphone adapter with it for $458

I also purchased energy RC Micro 5.1 speakers from cruthfield for $399

Do the experts back me up on my purchase. As per my research these are good speakers and also the receiver is good.

Now I am looking to buy rear wireless speaker kit. How is the kit below.. is it any good?

http://www.amphony.com/products/wire...ound-sound.htm

I likese these because i dont have to have a wire between my rear speakers.

Also based on my purchase what else do i need buy..

I know that i need cables but have no clue which kind. Please help.

Thanks
Ron

For wireless rear speaker kit the Rocketfish kit is the most well known and liked
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rocketfi...=1171058476489

The one you picked requires the use of an extra wall out let for each rear speaker. Rocketfish unit is proven here so i perfer them

You are going to be asking alot out of the RC-Micro's to fill such a large room with sound but hey they might be enough for you

I listened to the Denon DHT-591BA today at BB and was very impressed! My friend is looking into getting this setup. The Boston Acoustics speakers are better than I would have imagined plus they are really heavy! The one issue for my friend is that he can only run the system as a 3.1 setup. He is going to keep the surround speakers as backups or if he can run true 5.1 later down the road. Would this be a good 3.1 setup if he didn't use the rear speakers? He has a small living room so I don't think loudness would be an issue. He is currently just using a $50 set of logitech speaker for his sound. He isn't an audiophile but this denon package is a great deal especially for the price (he can also get it for $500 instead of the listed $600 because of BB reward certificates).

The reason I line Amphony 1550 is because I dont have to run a wire between the 2 rear speakers. Thats important to me because my couch is not against a wall and with rocketfish it would mean that I will have to go over the cieling to get this done.

Thanks
Ron

That's an excellent choice. Store the extra speakers for later use. He'll be very happy with the purchase.

I hope so. He is going to pick it up at the end of the week. His living room is small so I don't think the size of the speakers will affect him. I was actually surprised how good the boston acoustics sounded compared to a small pair of bookshelf speakers

If a dock is a deal breaker 6ave has several "custom entertainment solutions" with a receiver, 5.1 speaker set, and a dock. There are several with last years model, the 1610, but I don't see any with the 1611.

I bought this system a few days ago and love how it sounds. The speakers sound great. I have to say the worst part was connecting all the speakers. Trying to get the wire twisted circular to go around perfectly on the speaker terminal and not have them stick out was a nightmare. I have to say once I got to about the 3rd speaker it started getting easier. I will once again have to do this because I want to mount my speakers on the wall and need to tie them up (too much wire all over the place). I keep reading about banana plugs for simple speaker connection. Any recommendation on which ones are compatable with my speakers. I am not looking to replace the wire. Thanks to anyone who responds.

I was also impressed with the sound of the speakers. My friend recently picked this up at best buy and is running it as a 3.1 setup. I was surprised how good it sounded considering he was only using the front speakers and not the rears. I thought that the front left and right speakers would be to small and weak to function as mains but it does sound really good. Like me though, he does have a small living room so that probably also helps.

Thanks 4 response. Can anyone recommend banana plugs compatible with the BA speakers this system comes with? I am not looking to replace speaker wires

Well the BA speakers are clips for wire connection so banana plugs will not work. Banana plugs would work with the wire connection to the back of the reciever

But these would work to plug the wires into the back of the reciever
http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

The only advantage to banana plugs is convience. Personally i looked into them but then realized the chore of connecting speakers is only something i would do once and keep it for awhile

Thank you, yes I am only looking for banana plugs to use in the back of the receiver.

I think the convenience and ease of use when connecting to the back of the receiver is huge. I would recommend them just for that reason.

Great price right now at 97 cents/pr.

Are banana plugs easy to put on? Do you take the ones on the receiver off?

I don't even understand your second question? Receivers have speaker terminals and the banana plugs fit into the end of the speaker terminal.

Look at the 4:15 mark of this video. Thats how banana plugs fit into the speaker terminals on a receiver.

this system makes me drool, the speakers alone make this system worth it.


this place has it for $507, don't know anything about them, not sure how much shipping is either.

I have a question about the speaker wires that came with this system. Do I have to strip them to get to the copper? The wire itself is already stripped except the wire at the end is silver, not copper. I am fairly new to this type of speaker wiring so please excuse me if this seems like a stupid question. I do see copper but to get to it i have to strip. Does it even matter? I would think for a HTIB I should not have to strip but what do I know?

no need to strip them.. They are silver as solder is silver in color and they solder coat the cooper to not let the wire fray.

It does Not matter

Hey everyone, I have had this system for about 3 months and it worked perfectly until now. My subwoofer has been acting up lately. Its unbearably loud (too much bass), lowering the volume on it does nothing. Not sure why all of a sudden this is happening. I will try and reset my settings and do the auto set up again. Anyone have problems with their subwoofer on this system?
