I really wanted a surround receiver to have a much more realistic sound experience watching movies and replaced my Sony stereo amplifier from the ES series for this model. After some years of listening and trying several speakers I was not very satisfied with the Denon and decided to buy back my old amplifier. For only 100 euros I bought back my Sony 590ES and enjoyed listening to music again. What a difference!! Comparing them side by side I found out that the Denon really messed up the music. Parts of the music where just gone! I experienced with different speakers but no difference, the Denon keeps very flat and just misses sounds and instruments the Sony perfectly displays.
