My AVR 591 still impresses me!
After more than 5 years, you would think that my AVR591 would cease to amaze me. Well.....I've been amazed again. My cousin let me borrow seasons 1 and 2 of Game of Thrones on Blu-Ray (I know...I'm late to the party). It is the first title I've ever seen with Dolby Atmos. While I understand that this receiver doesn't do Dolby Atmos, I know that the sound is an improvement over Dolby Digital. i watched the first couple episodes in Dolby Digital. Sounded great!!! Just for giggles, I picked the Atmos setting for sound. I never went back to Dolby Digital. With my added BACK speakers amplified with my old Denon from the mid-eighties, this receiver has impressed me yet again. The folks who do the sound, on GoT, should receive every award possible because I have never experienced so immersive a sound environment for any movie I own.
I was disappointed to learn that the next season was DTS-HD. I assume that they stick with that going forward. It sounds very good but I'm not as impressed as I think I should be.
But this post is more about the astounding ability of this receiver to impress me time and time again! I never recommend any other brand than Denon..EVER!!
Have a great day and be kind to each other,
