Quick Quick review for now:
I love the way it generally sounds, music and movies. It seems to have a much richer sound field and definitely more depth than my previous piece (Anthem AVM-50). The sound is more forward and much more detailed and defined - something I have always appreciated from Denon - but this beauty does it in a way that is more elegant than what I am familiar with (5800 series). I am very impressed with the SQ on this unit.
I find mine is improving with age, after the first 24hours it sounded much smoother, could also be placebo, but who cares. I run the Sonos via digital into the Denon and it sounds brilliant possibly the best I've heard that zone.
The Denon also can read the albums off the zone player, it say Sonos Zone connected with IP address and hitting centre button on the remote brings up all the albums and songs off my NAS drive. I haven't ventured too far down the track as still playing with other options.
I agree the remote is rather ordinary, but functional.
