Blurb Taken from Creative-Audio.co.uk which pretty much sums up this Great Receiver :
"With all the emphasis being placed on the award-winning Denon AVR-1910, it's fair to say that its baby brother, the 1610, has somewhat slipped under the radar. In a sense this is a bit crazy, because anyone who takes the time to compare the two, will realise that the 1610 is not a million miles away from the 1910, so if the 1910 is such a clear winner in its class, then the same must equally be true for the 1610!
And it is - the 1610 sounds better than anything else at its price point, sports HDMI video upconversion (which its rivals don't have) and ticks enough boxes on the connectivity front to satisfy all but the most demanding Home Cinema enthusiast. What's more, it's built to a standard that no similarly prices amp can match - weighing in at one and a half stone! For those in the know, this is an excellent budget choice."
Been watching the price of this yo-yo up and down from the RRP of £349.99, but never seen it this low anywhere!....next best price is £279.99.
Bearing in mind that OFFICIALLY Denon do not condone mail order on their products, this is an instore purchase only, however price of the item instore shows at £269.95, so you have to quote that its £249.95 online.
Add in a 5 year warranty for peace of mind, for just £24.95 and for just shy of £275 you have one great sounding budget HDMI Receiver for your money for sure!
