hi. i am going to buy a dvd 3910+avr 3805. before the guy in the shop offers to set it up for me (for a small sum) would i be able to set it up myself just using the manuals or is it rocket science for a pro?
I think much depends on wheter you would consider yourself technically competent or not. It's not rocket science but you do need a bit of common sense to make all the right connections, made easier by the fact you could link the two with the Denon Link.
Be warned, Denon manuals are notorious for being poorly written.
I'd have a go at it yourself first, ask questions here if you get stuck, and failing all that THEN call in the cavalry (at a "charge" of course. )
I downloaded the manuals from the denon us website, and had a read through before i collected the equipment. Then i had a couple questions which i could hassle the retailer about when i picked up the gear.
The Denon manuals aren't great, but not too bad (the REL Quake sub-woofer one was the worst ever), They do take some time to get through, though....
