Clearly home entertainment has seen a revolution in technology over the last several years. And you might think that keeping up is a difficult and expensive proposition. But with the Denon AVR-1912, it's easy and affordable to make the leap forward without taking a deep plunge.
Great sound and picture quality
This isn't Denon's first rodeo. With over 100 years of consumer electronics experience, they know how to saddle up a winner. The seven channel amplifier in the AVR-1912 can drive your 7.1 home theater speaker system. You can even use two channels to power a second zone, giving you 5.1 in your living room while you listen to the radio in another room. Cutting-edge surround sound decoding turns your Blu-ray soundtracks into clear dialogue, high-impact explosions and musical scores that immerse you in the unfolding story. Thanks to six HDMI inputs, you can connect all the latest high-def A/V components and enjoy easy switching. And if you have older analog video sources, the '1912's video circuitry will convert them to digital and pass them to your TV via a single convenient HDMI connection.
A breath of fresh AirPlay®
Apple's AirPlay technology lets you stream music from your iTunes® library directly to the receiver, either from a networked computer or right from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®. Not only do you get a fast and convenient way to listen to your favorites, but anyone in your home can stream from their player to share their latest find.
Tons of remote possibilities
You may already hold in your hands an LCD touch-screen wireless remote control with easy to view buttons, intuitive controls, fluid search functions, that can also manage email. Thanks to Denon's free control app, your Apple® or Android™ device can double as a Wi-Fi® system remote. Requires a wireless home network. Receiver requires wired connection to the router.
Denon's free app lets you use a number of devices as convenient, Wi-Fi® remote controls (iPad® not included).
The world is your music library and photo album
The AVR-1912 offers plentiful music options when you connect it to your broadband home network. Surf thousands of Internet radio stations from all over the globe. Whether you like your metal from Manhattan or your rock from Romania, you'll find plenty to listen to. Or explore PANDORA® Internet radio, Napster® and Rhapsody® where millions of songs are at your command (registration or subscription may be required). You can even view your favorite photos through the '1912 from compatible PCs on your home network or visit albums on Flickr using your HDTV.
Wizard included — no road trip required
Audyssey setup mic
The '1912 comes with a first-time setup wizard to help smooth occasional bumps in the path to getting your system up and running. Just connect the '1912 to your power source and TV, and you're off. It's even simpler than clicking your heels together. Plus the '1912 uses an included microphone to analyze sound then automatically adjusts individual level, equalization, and delay settings for each of your speakers. You'll hear precise, uniform sound across a wide listening area instead of just a single "sweet spot," so everyone in the room can enjoy optimized home theater sound.

From the review Denon AVR-1912 Home Theater Receiver: A big world of entertainment possibilities
"I give the '1912 high marks for ease of installation, thanks to Denon's Setup Wizard, and its impressive versatility and connectivity. I also appreciate that Denon appears to have maintained the high level of construction and sound quality that has been a hallmark of their components for years. The '1912 looks and sounds fantastic, and should be able to easily handle all but the most bruiser speaker systems or cavernous rooms. Its surround sound decoding credentials are also impeccable."
