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

Denon AVR-X1300W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver with Bluetooth
  • Tried with 7-1 channel while awaiting second Subwoofer. It's great
  • I would have liked to have memory for per channel volume and sound settings, but overall it is very good value for the money.
  • It has 7 discrete amplifiers that provides 80 watts of power at 8ohm plus all the inputs you will need for a small home theater. I have not been disappointed.
  • The audio clarity and power is night and day. Setup is Polk Monitor 60 Series II in the front, CS20 Center, RTi4 Surround, Infinity Entra One Surround rear and Polk PSW110. Theis makes music and movies on my system sound incredible.
  • It is not clear 80 Watt per channel, very bad sound for this price.

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-X1300W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver with Bluetooth
  • 4 k compatible, blue tooth, wifi , enough output per channel..Everything I need
  • The app allows for making small adjustments to listening very convenient.
  • Easy setup. Audyssey is awesome and really helps get the spearkers configured correctly.
  • Also this is my 1st AVR receiver. Bought with Energy 5.1 speakers. The remote has options to play the speakers in different modes such as Dolby surround, DTS, Stereo, Stero Multichannel.
  • The remote control is crammed with buttons -- too small to be useful for adults with average sized hands.
  • Only feature I find lacking is 4k on screen display overlay (volume bar won't show up over 4k content). More expensive denon receivers will do this

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-X1300W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver with Bluetooth
  • Bluetooth is great and sending spotify to the reciever from my iPhone is awesome
  • 4 k compatible, blue tooth, wifi , enough output per channel.
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, more HDMI inputs than I can use, and my sound now syncs perfectly to the picture on my Sharp Smart TV
  • Good but like others have said bluetooth connection is finniky. It works for few minutes but during a pause or between tracks it becomes silent.
