A must have if you own Denon/Marrantz product!

I bought a mint condition Denon AVR 1912 from eBay. Everything works and everything came with it except the remote, so I had to download Denon's official app. It's convenient and free, but slow, buggy and has limited features. DeRemote, however, is 10x better than the official Denon app. Way more features, A LOT faster and very stable. It has never crashed on me in the 4 months I've had it. It's absolutely worth the 5 bucks; maybe even more.

My only complaint is I wish there was a way to disable the "shake to mute" feature.* Since I use the app as my only means of controlling my receiver sometimes I sorta just drop my phone on the couch like I would a remote and accidentally mute the receiver. Not so bad when casually listening to music or TV, but bad and fairly embarrassing when in the middle of a loud action scene and the receiver cranked up to reference level with guest over. Other than that, the app is perfect.

*UPDATE: There's now a way to disable the "shake to mute" feature, so now this app is totally perfect. Highly recommended!

So much better than Denon's app

I've been using the Denon remote app (sparingly) for several years, mainly because my receiver is behind a cabinet door and the regular infrared remote won't work when the door is closed. But the Denon app was lousy - took forever to load and often took 2-3 tries to find my receiver. Finally, I couldn't get it to load at all. I deleted it from my phone and was going to re-install when I came across this app. After reading the generally favorable reviews I decided to shell out the $5 - and am very glad I did. Initial install was quick and painless - in less than 2 min. it found my receiver and was good to go. Since then it opens up instantly and is very responsive. It deals effectively with my two-zone system. I'll have no problem using this instead of the regular remote and will now be able to keep the cabinet door closed. That should make my wife happy. Maybe she'll be nicer to me.

Dr. Pete ,

Bought it on a flyer...but it's awesome on McIntosh MX121!

I was a little leary buying this as I wasn't completely sure it would work with my McIntosh MX121 preamp / processor but since McIntosh doesn't have any proprietary app to control devices it was worth a shot. However, much to my surprise it easily found my gear and works perfectly! It is truly so much better than using the physical remote as it gives direct control over many features that are otherwise buried in several layers of onscreen menus. Love the layout that allows multiple boxes or areas for different designated controls...all of which can be customized to your liking. There are obviously a few features of the app that are not applicable to my specific equipment but most everything works spot on. If in doubt and you want great app control....DO IT! Time will tell on updates and support from the developer....fingers crossed.
