is this a good receiver? I know I can find a powerful receiver but this one has enough power for a 23*12 room?

I read that the 591 have the same DAC'S that he 1911?

Thank you

what speakers? how far away do yo sit from them? how loud do you listen?

don't worry about the dac... that's not even on the list of things for you to be concerned about...

yes, with those speakers at that distance with your listening levels, you will be fine...

Yep, with those high sensitivity speakers you should be fine. I own the 591 but my room isn't as large as yours.

My roommate owns a 591 and although it has been a great receiver we just recently ran into some major issues with it.

We built an htpc based on an intel HD2000 graphics system, it streams audio over HDMI but the 591 has problems with it. I've read that its an HDCP handshake kind of issue, but as far as i've read its a common problem.

Supposedly a firmware update has fixed most of the problems, so since you're looking at a new one you might not have the issues.

Either way just something to munch on.

Klipsch RF-62 L/R, RC-62 C, Energy C-100 SL/SR, HSU VTF-15H, Marantz SR7008.

unfortunately, htpc's can suffer from hdcp issues.... this isn't unique to your avr... and almost certainly is not the "fault" of the avr...

htpc's and cable boxes are the primary remaining offenders for hdcp problems...

is there a BIG difference vs per exemple the AVR-3312 in terme of QUALITY sound. I don't need all the extra features, only basic.

If I understand the 591 has enough power for my room so the avr-3312 could produce better sound and increase my cinema experience?

Although there is a difference, it really depends on the quality of your speakers and your ears. The 3312CI offers both a better version of Audyssey MultEQ XT and using Denon's AL24 processing on PCM audio. A good rule of thumb is to spend about 1/2 as much on the AVR as the 5.1 setup (required features not withstanding). If your budget and feature requirements point you towards the 591, and especially if you've never experienced Audyssey MultEQ (591), then call it a day and enjoy the 591. smile.gif
