A beast of a receiver with plenty of power and features. One thing to pay attention to is the sheer size. It is much deeper than other receivers and may not fit in your planned location. I replaced an older Denon and this one just barely fit on the shelf. We're talking by millimeters. Setup is easy to follow, but plan to spend 20 minutes or more if you run through the Audyssey speaker setup and analysis. Your mileage may vary with Audyssey tuning, but for my room it always lowers the front levels and raises the surround levels too much. As with other receivers I've setup in the past, I prefer to balance the speaker levels by ear and with an SPL meter.
Pros: Features and sound quality.
Cons: Physical size.

I've had several Denon and Marantz receivers over the years, and never had an issue. So I decided to step up to one better. This is a very solid unit, heavy and a little bigger than most other Denon receivers. This model fixes the HDMI issues from the previous model. With the 8K ports you have some future proofing in the unit. Has a gaming mode for less lag when needed. Using in a 7.3.4 speaker setup and it powers everything with ease with the ability to add more speakers as needed. The Denon setup walks you through an initial setup leaving you at a good starting point. It's easy to manual adjust anything in the unit through the GUI. You can also use the Audyssey app to setup the system. The HEOS app connected with no issues and access to most music streaming services and your local network is available. The Denon app controls the unit functions with no issues. Has worked great for music or movies. Using with 4K blu-ray, 4K computer (gaming), 1080p OTA, and 4K streaming sticks, and it all looks and sounds great. I hooked it up through Ethernet and it communicates and updates with ease. So far has not run very hot.
Pros: Can do 8K Lots Inputs and outputs for everything Denon setup makes it easy to start Can do any sound and pass through all current video encoding
Cons: only a 3yr warranty for the cost

This receiver is a BEAST and the sound is excellent for listening to music or watching movies. I would give it 6 stars if it would let me instead of 5.
Pros: Everything about it.

5 STARS, this AVR is a beast and runs my ATMOS surround system perfectly. 4K dolby vision has worked as it should with current HDMI standards , but can run up to 8K as well. Replaced my DENON 7200WA (The former flagship model) with this model and the unit is overall larger and heavier and side by side you can see and feel the upgraded quality in the chassis.
Pros: Powerful, fit and finish is perfect.
Cons: Expensive, almost twice the amount of the former flag ship model. Only 3 year warranty, at this price piont should come with a 5 year like the A110.
