“This receiver has a solid sound and, paired with decent speakers, sounds awesome. I have it in my living room and it mainly serves to power my video setup so that my family can enjoy TV, DVDs, etc. Zone 2 is set up to provide audio to speakers in other parts of the house. In general this works fine. - Occasionally, the left channel goes out on Zone 2. I've isolated this to the receiver by...” --mswope63
“Often people try to judge history by using today's morals as a gauge for yesterday's actions. I feel a bit like that trying to use today's A/V standards to judge a 10-year old receiver. When new there was nothing that surpassed the AVR-5803 and upgraded AVR-5803A. It was a behemoth (although not as big as the subsequent AVR-5805A - the Dreadnaught). Denon pulled out all of the stops with...” --alk3997
“I picked this up from my father, to run the radio during Washington Redskins games and play all my old console games. Since the NES/SNES/Genesis etc. don't have HD, it makes a great media switcher. Great unit for all those old VHS tapes.” --89GLH

“LOTS OF SURPRISES, FEW TRADE OFFS ONKYO'S TX-NR818 I have owned the Onkyo TX-NR818 7.2 Channel Receiver for 6 months, it replaced a Denon 3808. I am using the 818 with Goldenear Triton 2's L/R, SS50C, Mirage OS1's X4, Mirage Omnisat Prestige X2, Monoprice in ceiling speakers, Belkin Power Conditioner PF30 and Sony S790 Bluray Player with Power Sound Audio XS 30 Dual Opposing 15 inch...” --sonic debauchery
“This AVR is relatively easy to setup using the on screen GUI for the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 auto EQ program which can EQ up to 11 speakers (playing up to 9 at a time with an external 2CH amp) and 2 or more subwoofers. With dual processors (as opposed to only 1 on the lower Denon models), I can run an entire 7.2 setup Audyssey EQ in about 12 minutes from start to finish. As the majority of...” --jdsmoothie
“Home theater upgrades are often an adult "Christmas", usually ending up in a lot of time peering over manuals, tweaking settings, and ignoring "eye-rolls" from your spouse wondering what the big deal is. Few upgrades mean as much to videophiles quite like a receiver upgrade since they affect so much of the total system's performance. But like many of us, receiver upgrades are rare due to...” --Sevenfeet
“Seldom am I impressed enough to write a review but I have to say that I was plesantly surprised at how easy the setup was for this Denon AVR-E300. I was replacing my Denon AVR-989 due to needing a receiver with a shallower depth to fit in a new location (wife's idea - enough said). Since I no longer needed the multi-zone capability of the AVR-989 the downgrade from a 7.1 to a 5.1 receiver...” --isabels_dad

“I don't need much in an AVR. I need it to route AV signals from my components to my TV over HDMI. I need it to connect to my home LAN so that I can control it over IP using the Roomie iPhone App. I need it to make good-sounding noise come out of my 7.1 speakers. And I need it to not bug me. By these standards, and considering the blockbuster price I paid for it, I'm thrilled. There's one thing...” --spblat
