Easy set up. Great features! Love it for my Home system.
Pros: Ease of use. Multiple HDMI Audyssey speaker setup
Feature rich, somewhat complex software, good sound, a little light on power.
Pros: feature rich
Cons: Difficult set-up
I bought this receiver for the living room to replace an older Integra receiver that had died. This is my wife's main TV viewing area. She's not real "Techie" nor does she listen to the TV at loud volumes. This receiver was only going to see light duty primary running the Acoustimass 10 series speaker system I wanted to upgrade to use all HDMI connections, to get rid of most of the Spaghetti nightmare behind the TV. When I hooked up the receiver to the TV, I got nothing. I called Denon and we went through a couple of troubleshooting steps, and reset the receiver all to no avail. I called Crutchfield and explained the situation and he told me they would send me another one. They sent us a return label and that was that.. or so we thought. When the new receiver arrived two days later, we experienced the same problem. Called Denon, eh not much help. We then called Crutchfield and really went to town. The problem turned out to be the TV set was 8 years old and had an incompatible HDMI system. I bought her a new 65" Vizio 240 hz Razor LED and that solved all the problems. We also added a Sony 3D Bluray..man what a picture and great sound. The receiver does seem to have to go to the upper end of the volume nob to start getting loud. But from 60 to 80 % is a tremendous increase.
Pros: Good value, at a very reasonable price. Had all the features we needed and then some. Easy to install and set up, once we got a compatible TV set. Sounds real good with the Bose. Thanks to Crutchfield for the excellent service, they have made a customer for life!
Cons: None so far
I'd like to start by saying how much of a budget conscious shopper I am. I had been researching this Denon line of AVR's for a while. I looked all around the net, and saw that prices were dropping. It's because the 2014 models were coming out. I'm glad I purchased when I did because, just days after I purchased it, it was no longer available. Crutchfield had the lowest price I could find on it, including some open boxed ones on auction sites. And this is for a brand new reciever.
I went with this AVR because I feel like it was built for me. A no-frills, no paying for extra features I wouldn't use. No paying for a million rear connections that I would never utilize.
My set up is pretty awesome and somewhat unique. With everyone going towards 7.1 or higher, My room is long and narrow, forcing me to only be able to have a 5.1 set up. I have all newer tech hooked up to it. Everything is HDMI, so having the 6 in and 1 out is perfect. It is going to a projector, so no need for 4k upscale. It has 3D, which is perfect for my projector. It is a networked receiver, which recognizes DLNA, which is perfect for my media server. It also has a non-powered zone 2 audio out. I have heard complaints about this that it wasn't powered, but it is PERFECT for me because I have a 6 zone whole home amp that it can connect to. Everything is controlled through my phone, and it sounds great!
Pros: 1. First and foremost, COST. As mentioned above, I got it for a great price before it stopped being stocked. It was the cheapest I could find online, so a brand new, full warranty, AVR for the cost of a used/openboxed item, it's a no brainer. 2. I mentioned above, I feel like this was built for me. It has all the features I want, an nothing I don't. This makes for a really clean install. No random cables all over the place 3. Network control-ability. Even has Web Interface.
Cons: 1. No WIFI ( I actually prefer this, as my whole house is hardwired and I try to stay away from wifi, but I could see some people not liking this) 2. Not a lot of support for old tech. Has some analog inputs but not many (again, I prefer this) 3. Would not be that great for a bigger room (currently in a 19x13 room, and sounds great, gets nice and loud, but anything too much bigger, I don't think would sound as good.)
I love my denon avrx1000 receiver. The airplay feature is amazing. I also like the fact that it has 5+ hdmi inputs. However, the audyssey speaker setup is the best thing about this product.
Pros: Audyssey speaker setup, airplay, MULTIPLE HDMI ports.
Cons: None yet
Replaced an older Denon unit in order to gain full HDMI connectivity. Very pleased with the X1000 and glad I made the change.
Pros: Excellent, fairly easy, setup program; highly functional remote, great sound and sound options, ARC function.
Cons: No WIFI capability; limited component connections. Would like to see more description regarding the functionality of the many optional settings available.
This is a nice receiver with all the streaming capability of a music server. Sound quality is top notch with amazing clarity and detail while providing refined bass notes. Set up was very easy and the Audyssey speaker calibration software did a fantastic job of tuning. Excellent sound quality from compressed and streamed audio and robust bass response when watching Blu Ray. The HDMI 3D pass through is excellent with very deep color and makes source switching super easy. The free app has potentials but its a bit slow and buggy The app does not always respond to your commands and it will sometimes lock up. This is a great receiver that offers streaming capability controlled by an app that frankly needs a lot of work.
Pros: Excellent sound quality Easy set up Remote easy to use Great speaker tuning tool Amazing audio streaming quality Good build quality with nice design
Cons: The free app has potentials but falls short in terms of fluid functionality
Easy to set up, sound is excellent and a well laid out remote. The sytem software and DSPs were all updated once I connected to the network. I found the sound and power excellent, however the network apps...(eg. Pandora) had very basic and clunky interfaces unlike what you get when using Samsung's network apps which is what I intend to use. Overall, a good solid system for the price.
Pros: Great sound and power for a better than average Home Theatre System. Easy to set up and great remote.
Cons: System does not have wireless ethernet. Network applications (Pandora, etc.) not as nice as others (eg. Samsung)
I bought this receiver to replace my aging Bose Lifestyle 25 system. My goal was to get a quality receiver that would not break the bank. It was rather comical because when it arrived, I realized that my packaged Bose Accoustimass module would not work with the Denon. My friendly Crutchfield customer support rep confirmed there was no work-a-round and recommended Energy Micro 5.1 surround speakers at an amazing price so good to go. I am extremely impressed with both the receiver and speakers. The sound is a major upgrade over the Bose and the total price saved me well over $1500.00. I would agree that the CD manual leaves a little to be desired, but this thing is so easy to hook and use that it is understandable why Denon did not include a paper manual. Connected to my apple airport express wireless extender, the i pad and i phone apps allow me to control both zone 1 and zone 2 from anywhere in my house and work perfectly. Overall, this purchase is a home run, made even better with the amazing customer service provided by Crutchfield.
Pros: Crystal clear sound, network connectivity with i pad and i phone, easy set-up and easy to use, value for price paid.
Cons: I really can't think of any downside to this receiver.
I had a Yamaha and replaced it with this and I am so happy that I did. So easy to hook up, you litterally can't screw it up and I could be electronically challenged. Loved how it comes with a microphone that sets up optimum audio. It plugs right into the front of the receiver and you move it to 8 spots of your listening area (it walks you through the entire process, including where and how long to hold the mic). It was so easy to do and it took about 5 minutes. Don't skip this extremely easy 5 minute set up because it really made a difference.
Pros: Great audio for all types of music, movies, xbox one. Easiest electronic set up of my life. A steal for under$500.
I purchased this AVR to replace a DENON 1610 that I purchased from Crutchfield 4 years ago, which stopped transmitting audio rather abruptly, with an audible clicking sound coming from the unit. I must say I preferred the 1610 to the X1000 for several reasons. Although the X1000 has 5 more watts per channel than the 1610, there are a few features that my old one had (at a less expensive price point) which the new one does not. On the 1610, there was no doubt when you were watching something with DTSHD, as a blue light would come on in the upper-right hand corner of the display. There's also no input for adding a turntable (with the addition of a proper amp). The X1000 also seems to be incompatible with my DVR, as far as audio goes. My BluRay and DVD audio are both received by the AVR correctly (DTSHD for BluRay, DOLBYD 5.1 for DVD). However though, the 1610 never had any problems receiving DOLBYD 5.1 when viewing HD stations from my DVR, whereas the X1000 says it's receiving a PCM (stereo) signal from the DVR. I can switch the X1000's audio to PLllC, a faux 5.1, but it's not the same quality as a true 5.1 Dolby signal. This really bothered me, and I've tried every possible fix, by speaking to Crutchfield support (using a digital audio cable, switching HDMI inputs and cables), as well as going as far as changing out the DVR's through my cable provider, all to no avail. With all of that being said, the new unit performs well otherwise.
Pros: Audyssey set-up much easier than previous models.
Cons: Compared to older, less expensive models, not a lot of bang for your buck.
I ordered this receiver from Crutchfield to replace an old all in one unit I had for about 7 years. So far it has been great. It could not be easier to install and it was very compatible with all of the other items I plugged in to the unit. It was great to only have to run 1 HDMI plug to the TV and back. I haven't really even started by using all of the functions yet but so far it has been a great product. Even adding it to my Logic Tech remote was easy. Crutchfield was a great place to buy from. I ordered it on a Saturday afternoon and it was on my front porch Wednesday of that week.
Pros: HDMI connections
Cons: None I could fine as of yet.
Overall I would recommend this receiver. Sound quality is good, set up was fairly easy. The graphic interface isn't all that great and it can be difficult to figure out. I'm having a hard time playing Pandora through it, it's like it doesn't buffer at all, the tracks skip a lot (like play 2 seconds, stop for a second, play 2 seconds, etc.) and I know it isn't the internet connection because I can play Pandora perfectly through my blu-ray player.
Pros: Great quality at great price
Cons: no full user manual on paper, I don't have a CD drive on my computer, so I had to download the user manual. graphic interface kind outdated. difficulty with parts of set up
Received this unit just before Christmas After trying to get it set up and playing properly for 3 days I called tech support, after 2 very long phone calls they decided the connection to the left front speaker coming from the receiver was bad I sent it back and am waiting for another to be delivered Hopefully this one works
Cons: Did not work
Great receiver so far. No issues, and love the airplay. May be upgrading to a .2 receiver tho with a little more power per channel.
The Denon AVR-X1000 is the best receiver I have had that falls in my price range which is less than $500. I suspect some of those that run to more than $800 are probably better, but I really can't see that much difference between the X1000 and the Denon 3013 of my son's (which cost a lot more). That being said, and doing some comparison between his setup and mine I find the crispness, response, tonal warmth (we both use Polk Audio speaker systems) and general signal clarity for either music or Blu-Ray are very similar. I have had a number of other receivers in this same price range from Sony, Onkyo and Yamaha and I find this to be, to my ear, the best of the batch. The ambiance of the music, whether classical, semi-classical or popular puts one in the middle of the orchestra and one can feel the type of room or auditorium in which the music is played. With five HDMI inputs I have Satellite, Blue-Ray, Marantz CD player and an Xbox 360 connected with one input left over. Setup was extremely easy and the Audyssey Multi EQ allowed me to adjust the sound to any of eight positions. Since I have a small area I did so for three and find myself in front of the director's podium in each of them. I was surprised at the price of this receiver since it is lower than other 5.1 systems, though there are some 7.1 systems that are a bit higher priced. Given the difference in level of Audessey, or other audio setup, I found the X1000 to be the best bargain. I would recommend it highly
Pros: Ease of setup both in connecting speakers as well as audio setup
Cons: So far I find nothing to fault
. I carefully researched receivers and the Denon AVR-X1000 received excellent reviews. It has not disappointed. it was easyto set up and operate. It performs perfectly, with well-balanced high-quality sound. Highly recommended.
Pros: Easy to set up, adjust & operate.
Awesome sound! Easy setup! Had a Harmon Kardon system prior to this one and after years of messing with settings, never did come close to sounding as amazing as the Denon!
Great receiver. The best (but not the most expensive) receiver that I have ever owned. By far the simplest setup, especially audyssey. I used to buy only Onkyo receivers, but two of them failed recently, so I decided to try Denon instead. I am very glad that I did. I also decided to connect the receiver to my network via an ethernet cable. Works like a charm. Highly recommended.
Pros: Super easy setup. Audyssey sets the speakers perfectly (5.1) Easy internet connection via ethernet cable
Cons: None so far
I now own two Denon receivers. I purchased this AVR-X1000 for my home theater. I moved my other Denon receiver from my home theater to my main level family room.
Both of my Denon receivers get a ton of work. We have a family of five. These receivers are so easy to set up. They include a microphone that calibrates the speakers. The On Screen Display is very easy to interact with.
The front control panel makes it so easy to select your activity. The remote control is intuitive. I even downloaded the free Denon App to my phone and can control the receiver through the App.
Crutchfield pricing on Denon is remarkable. You'll be so pleased with Crutchfield support and a solid Denon receiver. I give both of my Denon receivers 5 Stars!
Pros: Easy setup, great sound, great on screen display, solid build quality.
Cons: None at this price point
Second Denon unit and this one does not disappoint either. This one was easier to set up than the first. Replaced a Sony that would cut out on occasion. This is a much better unit
Pros: Easy set up. Good sound
Cons: None yet
Replaced a 10 year old Denon receiver with this one because I bought a new TV and the whole world has gone to HDMI in the last 10 years. First off, HDMI makes everything easy. There are less cords and you can make everything look neat. With the old receiver and trying to use various audio inputs, nothing was easy to find. I would guess at which setting I needed for cable, DVD player, game etc. I set this receiver up perfect and everything is connected to the right input which makes it easy to switch audio modes. I only had to use 1 optical input for the smart TV back to the receiver. Bottom line: I was mad that I had to replace a receiver that was working fine & now I am so happy that I did it.
Pros: HDMI inputs makeseverything easy and intuitive
Cons: Still have to use optical connection for TV
The receiver was very easy to set up with Audyssey speaker set up and they sound great. The sound and video are both crisp and clear. I set up the network for internet radio and Pandora with no issues. The only problem I did have was the Wii connection. This receiver can not upscale video so I got a converter through another retailer for the back of the Wii to change it to a HDMI connection and it works perfectly fine (keep in mind it is still 480p). 3D movies play with no problem and digital processor puts sound in correct places. Air play function was easy to set as well. GREAT PRODUCT !!
Pros: easy set up great sound great video
Denon AVR-X1000 is awesome receiver. Setup was so easy and everything works as advertised. Sound quality is very good and picture is awesome! The Crutchfield customer support is very good and very nice! Thank you for great communication and great professional service!
Pros: Great sound, picture and network! Airplay works very well (only audio and pictures, no video!)!
Cons: Airplay need video capability and price should be a bit lower!
The receiver showed up in two days and was packaged well.
It was easy to setup, and had good instructions. I love the access to internet radio, and can easily use all of my Apple devices with it. There were several HDMI inputs, which I didn't use all of them. I have several speakers throughout the house (plus outside) and this was a perfect fit. Sounds great, and powerful.
Pros: Easy to setup, powerful, sounds great, lots of HDMI inputs (did not use them all!)
Cons: None so far
Excellent product. I will be purchasing the DVD player as well. Very easy to set up and the sounds is great.
Pros: Easy setup, iPhone app works great at controlling all the features.
Great receiver. Hooked it up and setting it up was incredibly easy. Sound is much better than previous Yamaha receiver. AirPlay is pretty cool too
Very impressive, feature-rich unit. Controls are much more intuitive than the 10-year-old Denon it replaced. The on-screen display is terrific and the automatic speaker setup is spot-on. Out of the box, though, I couldn't get it to make a sound, nor was the Audigy option available. After about 45 minutes with Jack, a first-rate Crutchfield technician, we finally managed to get things going. The key seemed to be plugging in and removing headphones several times. Low-tech solution, I guess, but it worked. Fifteen minutes later, I had the 5.1 speakers balanced perfectly, Pandora set up and all was good.
Pros: Intuitive interface, on-screen display, simply incredible sound quality (which you'd expect from Denon). It easily integrated with my Logitech multi-device remote.
Cons: Only one, really ... the lack of "legacy" connectivity. For most people, not a big deal. But my local Comcast provider doesn't have true digital, so I'm stuck with coax to see broadcast TV. And I'm one of those oddballs that still has an SVHS VCR. A $40 analog to HDMI converter let me connect it. My Denon CD changer connected fine via digital coax, so life is good.
Great receiver for the money. Solid amplifier performance with many extras like AirPlay, network capability, easy setup, great user interface, and attractive looks. Glad I got it and glad I got it from Crutchfield..
Pros: Great performance with the ability to tweak just about every parameter you can imagine.
Cons: Wish this had a built in wireless capability. But it works just fine with a wireless bridge.
Love this unit... it's my first time getting a Denon... glad I did... It's everything and more.
Pros: Just the right size to fit in my custom unit. More options than I will ever use. It's great at doing the job it was intended to do.
Cons: not sure about connecting to internet.. but it's more of my error than anything else.

Equal Power Amp Design w Discrete Circuitry: The Denon AVR-X1000 is equipped with a 5 channel power amplifier rated at 80-watts (into 8-ohms, at 20-20kHz, with 0.08% THD, driving 2 channels) that reproduces high-fidelity sound in surround mode with equal quality and power for all channels, true to the original sound. The power amplifier circuit adopts a discrete-circuit configuration that achieves high-quality surround sound reproduction. To faithfully reproduce the original surround sound, each of the Denon AVR-X1000's five channels are equipped with its own high-current power amp of equal power. Since these power amps also use discrete circuits configured with parts strictly selected for their contribution to high sound quality, rather than with low-cost integrated circuits (ICs), the surround sound playback is of impeccably high quality.
24-bit/192-kHz DACs: This receiver is equipped with 24-bit/192-kHz DACs for all channels to decode and playback high-resolution recordings with less jitter and clearer sound.
32-Bit Processing DSP: The Denon AVR-X1000 is equipped with an Analog Devices 32-bit DSP for powerful and highly accurate surround sound reproduction.
Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Denon AVR-X1000 AV receiver supports the following multi-channel (Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic) decoding formats.
Note: Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be selected if your audio source is connected to the AV receiver via a digital audio connection (HDMI, optical, or coaxial). Even though the AV receiver will decode 7.1channel surround sound (via HDMI), it will only output 5.1ch surround, because it lacks Surround Back channel speaker outputs.
Denon Original Listening Modes: Denon's Original Listening Modes, combined with Dolby Digital/DTS/Dolby Pro Logic processing, produce more realistic, powerful sound effects for your movie and music sound tracks based on the type of content and your home theater setup. You can choose from the following:
Note: This unit automatically generates a list of all the playable sound modes based on the input audio format and the current speaker setup configuration and displays the list on the screen. Therefore, you can select a correct surround playback mode even if you are not familiar with sound mode selection.
Direct Listening Modes: The Denon AVR-X1000 offers two Direct Listening Modes which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for higher sound quality performance. Direct Mode provides playback of 2ch or Multichannel audio in its original form, without any surround or tone processing. Pure Direct Mode goes a step further by turning off the receiver's display and analog video circuitry to minimize the possibility of any noised being added to the audio signal.
Audyssey Technology: The AVR-X1000 features a full package of Audyssey audio technologies for optimal sound quality. Audyssey Dynamic Volume offers real-time volume adjustment, while Audyssey DynamicEQ improves your system's surround effects during low volume levels. Audyssey MultEQ automatically sets speakers to suit your room's listening environment and the speakers' characteristics.
Surround Parameters: You can adjust the following surround mode parameters:
Audio Enhancements: The Denon AVR-X1000 receiver provides various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.
Volume Settings: The AVR-X1000 offers the following volume settings.
Level Adjustments: The AVR-X1000 provides the following level adjustments.
Audio Inputs/Outputs: The Denon AV receiver offers a variety of analog and digital audio inputs/outputs.
HDMI (v1.4): With six HDMI v1.4 inputs (5 rear/1 front), the AVR-X1000 allows you to route multiple high-definition devices, such as your Blu-ray player and cable/satellite receiver, to your TV. It also allows you to connect all of your devices to your TV with a single HDMI cable (via its HDMI monitor output), reducing cable clutter. The HDMI inputs are assignable to different input sources. The receiver's HDMI v.1.4 jacks are compatible with 1080p/24Hz video, 3D video signals, Deep Color & x.v.Color technology; as well as LipSync, ARC, and HDMI control.
HDMI Standby Pass-Through: When enabling the HDMI Standby Pass-Through function, regardless of whether the AV receiver is "On" or in "Standby" both audio/video streams from an HDMI input will be output to your television, via the receiver's HDMI monitor output. You can select between three HDMI through function modes.
Composite Video Inputs/Output: The receiver features two composite video inputs and one composite video monitor output. You must connect the receiver to your TV via composite video to view incoming video from the receiver's composite inputs. There are no component video inputs/outputs.
Video Select Function: While listening to Network/Tuner/USB content, you can switch the receiver's video input so you can display video while listening to an audio source.
Network Connection: The Denon AVR-X1000 is equipped with an Ethernet (RJ-45) port that lets you connect the receiver to your home network (LAN) and your broadband internet provider. When connected to your home network, the AVR-X1000 lets you listen to Internet radio and a host of other online music sources from your broadband internet provider, as well as play audio files & display still images from your computer via its network connection (DLNA 1.5 certified). The AVR-X1000 also supports AirPlay that lets you stream your music library from an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or iTunes.
Note: This unit's RJ-45 Ethernet port supports 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX and requires an Ethernet (LAN) category 5 or higher cable, Router, Modem, and Internet connection.
DLNA 1.5 Certified: The AVR-X1000 is DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) 1.5 and Windows 7/8 compliant for audio and photo networking. This means it's easier for you to access and enjoy digital music and still-images (JPEG) stored on your Windows PC. You can use your PC to play high-bit rate music content through the A/V receiver and view still-images on your connected TV, or use the AVR-X1000's remote control to browse music & photo files on your hard drive. The receiver also supports ID3-Tag (ver.2) and META tag information; so song title, artist name, and album name can be displayed the unit's front-panel display or on-screen menu. In addition the unit will display Album Art on a connected television. The Denon AVR-X1000 supports the following audio formats, sampling frequencies, and bit rates via its wired network connection.
|Compatible Audio Formats||Sampling Frequencies||Bit rate||Extension|
|WMA (Windows Media Audio)||32/44.1/48 kHz||48-192 kbps||.wma|

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone or online chat to discuss this specific feature. They will be able to pull up the receivers we have and see if there is one that will fit your needs. If there is not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Jeff Dec 31, 2013 ] Staff
The zone two outputs are pre-outs only. You will need a separate amp for powering the deck speakers. One of the most common units for that application is the AudioSource AMP100 Stereo Power Amplifier. Has auto on so you can "hide" the amp in a coat closet, attic or where ever. Once setup there is no fussing with it. BTW the remote Denon app for your smart phone will give you complete control of the X-1000 from your favorite deck lounge chair. [ Steve Dec 26, 2013 ]
Joe, I don't have my Zone 2 set up yet, but from my understanding you will need a separate amplifier. The Zone 2 output is two RCA type outlets in the back on the receiver. Those two outputs would go the the input on a second amp which would drive your outdoor speakers. And yes, you can have two simultaneous different source outputs to different zones, i.e. watching a movie on the TV for zone 1 and playing background music from pandora on zone 2 [ TYLER Dec 26, 2013 ]
Yes, there is an rca connection for subwoofer out [ ALFRED Jan 02, 2014 ]
Hi Joe,, Yes the X1000 has a LFE output for powered subs'. I have Def. Tec, tower speaker with onboard powered subs..I have a Y connector plugged in to the LFE output on the X1000 with separate lines running to the LFE input on the speakers. [ GREG Dec 29, 2013 ]
Yes [ DORU Dec 28, 2013 ]
Yes, it has a single RCA cable option to plug in a powered subwoofer. I bought this receiver and currently have a Polk dsw pro 660wi subwoofer hooked up to it. [ RICK E Dec 27, 2013 ]
Yes I have paradigm powered sub [ PETER C Dec 26, 2013 ]
Unfortunately there is no sub in my current configuration, I am using to drive multiple zones throughout the house. The subwoofer out is a single RCA connection in the pre-out section which would lead me to believe it is a line level out meant to go to a powered sub. [ DIANE Dec 26, 2013 ]
yes of course. Just plug it in to the Pre-out for the sub and away you go. This thing is amazing . The auto setup has mad my existing speakers and sub woofer sound like never before. [ Steve Dec 26, 2013 ]
Yes. [ MARK Dec 26, 2013 ]
The receiver has a single unpowered LFE output for use by the majority of self-amplified subwoofers on the market. [ KEITH Dec 26, 2013 ]
It has a single RCA type plug for a powered subwoofer. Look at the photo of the back just above the L FRONT speaker outputs. [ TYLER Dec 26, 2013 ]
how do we get air play? [ j Dec 28, 2013 ]
Hello. I have all Apple products in my home, so I have not tested it with the Android. With the iPhone, I either use AirPlay or just plug in my iPhone or iPad to the USB port located on the front. You would then use the device to select the music you want to play. I don't see why that would not work, since you could connect via USB, and then select the USB option. I also stream music through other services like Pandora and Sirius XM. All are great! GOod Luck. [ MELANIE Dec 22, 2013 ]
This receiver is not recommended for use with 4-ohm speakers. The receiver will accept speaker impedances of 6 to 16-ohm. [ Jeff Dec 05, 2013 ] Staff
