What customers say about "General Specifications"
Denon AVR-S920W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver with Bluetooth / WIFI and 2 HDMI Cables
  • Very clean sound w/ 90W per channel from AVR-S920W. I run 5.1 AV in one room and stereo AV in second room. The second room mirrors the Main so, you cannot mix sources.
  • What a amazing receiver this does it all and it is very very powerful 185 W is amazing if you were in the market for a Dolby Atmos Receiver then this is the way to go especially at $500 I am 100% satisfied
  • Easy to setup, and I have used it with blue ray, 4k and 3D movies and it handles them all. Awesome sound where you feel like you are right in the middle of the action.
  • Full 4K throughput, moderate power and all the cool features I need. iPhone App works well once it finds the receiver, integration with tv is excellent, surround sound and second zone stereo features are well developed.
  • Really expexted it to have dolby pro logic 2 for the price. Can't play stereo music over 5.1 channel without it.
  • Sounds are not as sharp & pure as my another room's receiver Onkyo TX-RZ810

What customers say about "Key Specs"
 
Denon AVR-S910W 7.2-Channel Full 4K Ultra HD A/V Receiver with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
  • I paired my S910W with a Definitive Mythos Nine center channel speaker, two Definitive Mythos ProMonitor 1000 front bookshelf speaker, two Definitive Mythos Gem rear speakers and a Paradigm PS1000 subwoofer. I have all my media available on my home network and the system sounds terrific.
  • Dolby atmos works awesome and it can convert any dolby true hd 7.1 format into atmos.
  • Music sounds great and watching movies is great too. Everything hooks up to the reciver and one HDMI arc cable to the tv( Sony 65" ultra high definition 4K) Niceeee!!
  • Sounds fantastic with my Definitive Technology speakers. The sound is a bit bright when listening to music in stereo but it's spot on for movies.
  • The only downside is that I can't add/upgrade additional overhead channel speakers for Dolby Atmos. I knew this when I bought this receiver so this doesn't reflect on my rating
  • I find that the sound fades in and out which is frustrating. I have played with all the settings and have not found a way to resolve this.

What customers say about "Features"
Denon AVR-S920W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver with Bluetooth / WIFI and 2 HDMI Cables
  • Full 4K throughput, moderate power and all the cool features I need.
  • iPhone App works well once it finds the receiver, integration with tv is excellent, surround sound and second zone stereo features are well developed.
  • RC Select (allows changing of an HDMI source while the AVR is in Standby mode)
  • Supplied measuring microphone and mic stand which generates a series of test tones at each speaker, including the subwoofer, and then creates a full set of precision digital filters that optimize system.
  • The remote is intuitive and easy to use even in a darkened room
  • Do not buy if you are relying on the app for controlling it. It is garbage. If I would've known ahead of time, I wouldn't have purchased. The denon app is 2.2 stars out of 5, and I imagine it will get worse. If you can use the remote, it is fantastic and amazing with my 7.1 setup.
Denon AVR-S910W 7.2-Channel Full 4K Ultra HD A/V Receiver with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
  • Setup was simple using Audyssey and the included MIc. I mounted it to a tripod at each of my seating locations and it did the rest. I
  • ARC which is smarter than other systems I've used, I can use any remote with the receiver and it will work plus it auto selects the input when changed
  • Audyssey audio calibration is also very quick and easy, and the included cardboard stand for the microphone is a really nice touch for those of us without tripods handy
  • GUI menus weren't natively built in 4k. Or even 1080p. Blurry graphics and text all around.
  • It has a safety feature that will turn it off but you cann't figure out why. The trouble shooting guide only mention a few. Others you have to guess. Yes.!! Guess, it is not explain. So you are left with it turning off on you every day and more than once.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Denon AVR-S920W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver with Bluetooth / WIFI and 2 HDMI Cables
  • I'm using the ARC connection with my new LG OLED TV and that works great. It's nice to have a 2 way HDMI connection with the TV
  • Dual band 802.11n Wifi (2.4Ghz, 5Ghz)
  • HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 compliant which makes connections a no brainer and a little future proofing.
  • Includes some stickers that help identify speaker wire connections
  • My only disappointment has been that the Bluetooth connection often drops while I am using it. When this happens, I have to unplug the system from the power source to "reboot" it.
Denon AVR-S910W 7.2-Channel Full 4K Ultra HD A/V Receiver with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
  • Really easy setup (HDMI video pass-through is SO great! Down from over 20 cables to just 6!)
  • The wi-fi connection is easy to set up and makes updating the unit to the latest firmware really straightforward
  • AirPlay connectivity for my family's iPhones and iPod Touches is nice if we ever want to play some music while we're downstairs and keep it to our personal libraries
  • Over-the-HDMI-cable control (variously called CEC, VieraLink, etc.) to do things like automatically turn on the correct devices when the receiver is powered on and switched to a particular input
  • The wireless features, DLNA, Wifi, Bluetooth, all work great.
