Ratings and Reviews
Nice idea, poor execution
The app is a very nice idea, especially for configuring an amp. However the actual implementation leaves a lot to be desired. It crashes a lot, isn’t very reliable at detecting my amp, and it’s user interface text suggest it was made by developers with a less than stellar grasp of English.
Thankfully there’s also an old fashioned IR remote in the box. It does mean you need to have a tv connected and powered on to configure the amp properly though.
Please spare a few minutes to work on your apps
Denon please do your customers and yourselves a favour on hiring an app developer, someone who has completed primary school, for a day and sort out the mess that your apps are. Being an app based remote system, it is shameful that a 500 dollar receiver simply would not work beyond the basic speaker connection function. Try to change settings on the AVR remote, it does not work, playing music on the HEOS app, it does not work. How you keep trading and selling these receivers is a mystery to me, any other company would have gone out of business with these serious quality issues.
As the amount of negative reviews here does not prompt you to do something about it, please send me your bank account I will pay the cost of an app developer as it seems your overpriced systems do not leave you with enough cash. Oh and lastly, do not send me a link to a feedback website, I think I have been clear enough here.
Finally getting there
After almost a year of nothing, good to see Denon are finally getting this app to work. Up until today, I have had to use the older Denon app with my AVRX-4200 as this app kept crashing or it would not respond to allow music to play on my media server. Now it is almost there, I can select tracks whilst still listening to others and create playlists. Unfortunately it is still crashing but not as badly, it also has a weird issue where when it does crash - it does not seem to recognise there is a queue of music waiting to play. Come on Denon, please keep working on this and make it perfect.
