Great for 2005 No longer works. Old one star review: This interface needs a major overhaul. I expected a lot better when I purchased my receiver. I suppose I should have investigated but I was just trusting denon to have something reasonable. Luckily, I can get a $35 chromecast and will probably endrun around this app before it gets updated. Maybe I'll be surprised and this app will be replaced before a workaround arrives.
Was great No clue how this app hasn't improved in functionality over the years, but it still looks like it was designed in 2011, and now my 3313ci cannot be found on the network more often than it can be. Even after going through network setup again, the problems persist. Consider a receiver from a company that places more emphasis on staying current with their app functionality. Or at least one that doesn't let their app become useless over time, and then releases a new app for newer receivers.
App doesn't respond This app is a disaster. When trying to play local internet stations (because the HD tuner is dead) or SirusXM, it continuously loops between the station and the folders. Once I get a station to play, the displayed text is so small I can't read it. Glad I paid $1300 (3313ci) for an AVR with broken features
An absolute mess How hard can it be for a company that produces Denon & Marantz to pay some decent devs to actually fix this bloody app? Surely can't be that hard to get the app to not loose connection every 10 seconds, refusing to find the receiver afterwards? An absolute mess to configure, works like an absolute pig when navigating through menus. Unbelievably messy work from a company that should know better. Using it for a Marantz 1506.
Bad from the start This app has never been usable - I have had to use 3rd-party apps or the web interface of the 4520 amp. The latest version doesn't even connects. No interest of Denon to release any fix. Instead a new app for amps from 2015 and forward - an app with an even lower average vote than this. Never buy Denon if you need yo use their Android apps - they are only released to check a checkbox in the product datasheet. And never expect Denon to fix toothing issues.
Working after Update [Update: Aaaand Broken Again] [Update] last update made app non-functional again... Update fixed constant crashes I was getting using the app. The app is an improvement over using a remote control and the on screen menus, especially when managing playback to different zones. It's also nice that I don't have to be able to see the TV/receiver in order to make selections. That said, the interface a bit clunky and navigation between areas is difficult, and only a subset of receiver functions are included.
*If the App doesn't work properly, please try to reboot your mobile device, unplug the power cord of the main unit and reinsert into the power outlet or check your home network.
*Please use a latest firmware in your Denon models by checking it via the system setup menu.(General > Firmware)
*Please set "Network Standby / IP Control / Network / Network Control" to "ON / Always ON" in your Denon product via the system setup menu to use this app.
