Ok, got the Denon and messed with it for about 2 hours. Long story short, it's going back for sure.
I ran the setup in all 6 positions like it said, and I got exactly the same results with my Yamaha YPAO setup. Left 10.8ft, Right 9.8 ft., sub 18.6 ft. Left Speaker -1.0 db......
Things I don't like,
The Yamaha's menu is a lot easier to get through and change settings.
My Yamaha at -25 on the volume is -10 on the Denon.
The Yamaha is way louder than the Denon at any volume level
I noticed no major improvement in sound quality from the Yamaha
2 things I noticed right away that turned me off and I read about them on some reviews and they were not lying !
1. The remote sometimes don't act right. Mainly I would be in a menu to change something, and the "back" button on the remote wouldn't respond. I had to exit, go back in the menu, and do it again. 1 out of maybe 3 times the "back": button just wouldn't respond for some reason.
2. I messed with the Bass/Treble settings, and the manual EQ settings to customize the sound. I exit the menu, go back into the menu and everything is reset back to "0". I thought it was me, but I did it a few times, went back and check, a few times it was ok. I turned off the receiver, went to a different mode, back to the menu, then I would look, and it was all back at "0".
I had a funny feeling cause the big guy at BB was working today and he knows his stuff pretty good. I asked him what's their best selling receivers and he said Yamaha hands down. I guess I'm just used to the Yamaha and it's "quick" menu. Also, the Denon I think only lets you switch 1 HDMI output to be a "pass through" for when you turn the receiver off and want to watch TV. I believe thats what I read. The Yamaha lets all HDMI's pass through.
Thanks Guys, for now it's my Yamaha. If I decide on an upgrade, it will be another Yamaha down the road.
