Very poorly thought out. I've really tried to like it. Why do you have to go through the so many buttons just to select the ONLY connected receiver? And then do it again if the phone sleeps. Stay in the last screen used, please?? Need to find another choice.
I'm using an AVR-X3000. This app sucks plain and simple especially with android support. Although Air Play seems to work flawlessly. What gives? Next to ZERO functionality when it comes to Spotify or any streaming. In fact, only recently every selection I make comes up, "station not found". I've power cycled, firmware is up to date, app is up to date...what's the deal? The whole purpose of purchasing this unit was to integrate into my home network. I need answers and a fix ASAP. We all do. Fix this.
I'll probably stay away from Denon on my next purchase. Amp is great but this app kills it's entire "connected" experience. You would think Denon/Marantz would hire some decent developers to fix this but with every year it gets worse. I think company is still stuck in the 90s. Shame...
It does everything it's advertised to do... For about five minutes at a time. I have a Denon AVR X2000 recover that sounds fantastic, and my home media server connects to it flawlessly. But when I try to use the app to control it, I have to reset it almost every other song because it loses connection with the server or the receiver, or crashes outright. This app is an embarrassment to some otherwise really cool equipment.
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.
*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.
