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.
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.
Always a new problem Seems like this app has a new problem every week. Now it won't let me connect to my Pandora. Every time they do an update, something else doesn't work. I paid a lot of money for this receiver to have the luxury of the app, and it never works properly. Very disappointed.
Hate Denon Worst audio experience I have ever had. Should have stuck with Onkyo. Bought AVR1100X because it appeared to have spotify app preloaded. NOPE! NO SPOTIFY. Cant even load Spotify. Have to have spotify on different device and stream. So, you need this crappy app that does jack crap. Need to have wifi on on phone or bt so drains phone battery. TOTAL MISREPRESENTATION OF A PRODUCT. Have to have 2 apps and either wifi or bt on to use. Anyone looking for a Denon AVR? Check curbside getting ready to set it out.
Did you give up? Almost a year since last update Hoping for a smoother and better app. Spotify doesn't work any more and Internet radio works quite random. Over all slow ui but probably because of the lousy firmware in the reciever. Denon 2113
This app is absolute trash. It's an embarrassment to Denon, a quality receiver brand. Surely they can invest a few thousand dollars to pay someone with some app design skills to do a better job than this app. The screens are un-intuitive, navigation is inconsistent. Could use a full overhaul. Really detest that this is the only option available.
*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.
