Denon's AVR-1911 is arguably a bit of an overachiever. It provides gripping, engaging surround sound with all your movies and video games; boasts high-quality connections for high-def video; and offers lots of options for music lovers. But it doesn't stop there. Unlike other receivers, it can pass high-definition 3D video signals from a 3D Blu-ray player to your 3D TV no mean feat, since that's nearly twice the bandwidth of a 1080p HD signal. It's a smart choice for anyone interested in 3D at home, whether you're planning to put together a 3D TV system now, or a few years down the road.
Plug your iPod® straight into the front panel your favorite tunes will sound clearer
Quite a few receivers have a USB input, but the AVR-1911's front-panel USB is special. It has dedicated iPod support you simply connect your iPod or iPhone using its supplied USB cable, and press Play on the receiver's remote. More goodness: Instead of the sound quality being limited by the iPod's made-for-earbuds audio circuitry, digital signals are sent straight to the Denon's high-quality DACs, so all your favorite tunes will sound better. Or plug in a USB flash memory drive, or hard disk drive loaded with your music. Switch on Denon's Compressed Audio Restorer mode to flesh out the sound of your MP3 collection. Adding an optional Denon iPod dock lets you enjoy photos and videos too.
Super sharp video and a cleaner setup
The '1911 can take each and every video signal you give it including standard-definition signals from sources like your Wii or DVD player and send everything to your TV over a single HDMI cable. This minimizes cable clutter, and also makes your system easier to use since you won't have to switch inputs on your TV. Better yet, the '1911 can upconvert all your sources to 1080p to better match your TV's high-def screen.
