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... (read more)

After less than a year of use the Denon AVR-1603 receiver began shutting off whenever the volume reached a certain point. I'm not even talking very loud. The whole unit just powers off.

Avoid this piece of junk at all costs. (read more)

I bought this reciever to replace my old Yamaha AX-550 integrated amp. Since my budget was low, and I desperately craved a surround receiver, I bought this one at www.hifiklubben.no for around NOK 3500/€420. Prices have dropped much since then (jan 03), they now (sep 04) sell the new models AVR-1604 and 1705 for around NOK 2700/€320.
