Apparently, the repairman had not done anything. Hoping a call from denon will get him on the job. We shall see. Just FYI about the world we live in the repairman at one time had 13 people working for him fixing electronics, tvs,stereos etc. Now it is just him. Sad. Nothing gets fixed, just thrown away.
Finally got a replacement from denon after some wrangling here and there. All in all very satisfied with support. Got a refurbished AVrx2000 as an upgrade replacement so I am happy. Thanks to Denon Team Support.

Did I make a mistake?

My daughter owns the Denon AVR-1612 and I just purchased a pair of Micca MB42 speakers for her to use as left/right surrounds.

I see now that the MB42's are rated at 4 ohms, 75 watts with 85 dB sensitivity. 60-20,000 Hz. 4" woofer and .75" silk tweeter.

Presently she is only using some Sony floor speakers and center channel. No subwoofer.

Trying to decide if I should I send them unopened when they arrive?

Surrounds don't draw much power and if she doesn't listen too loud, should be fine.

It all depends on how loud she listens -- at 85dB sensitivity, with low power handling, these speakers are not designed to play very loud. It's impossible to get precise with the numbers but if she never really goes about -20dB volume (60 out of 80 on the absolute scale) it's probably fine.

Anyone using a NAS to stream audio to their AVR-1912? My 1912 is connected directly via ethernet to my home network's wireless router. I'm presently using the receiver's DLNA function to stream audio from a networked PC, but would like to do away with having to run the PC to listen to music. What I'm looking for:
NAS able to stream without PC running.
Ability to stream high-quality FLAC (24/96) and ALAC files.
Easy to set up and use, with control from an itunes app or a tv with the Denon remote.
Must be able to play gapless audio tracks and show album art/info.
I don't need massive amounts of storage.
Thanks for any help.
Mike

spotify & XM RADIO?

Has there been any firmware updates that allow SPOTIFY Connect and XM RADIO on the 2112CI receiver? I see newer models have it.

Thanks .... Dave

Nope. Spotify Connect is a new feature only available on the new 2014 models. SiriusXM is featured on the XX13 and newer models.
