    I’ve had this app for quite a while. I pair my iPhone (Xr, iOS 13.1.2) with the receiver using Bluetooth, which turns the receiver on and sets it to Bluetooth. Then I fire up pandora, sxm, or 8player. I can listen all day. No drops, pauses, crashes. I listened all day yesterday, and am doing so now as I write this review. Nothing fancy, but it works perfectly.

    Downloaded awhile ago to phone and then forgot about it.... Started using today because we have been having issues with our reg. remote. It really appears to work well you can easily see your vol. number and can access the diff. things hooked up to play the audio from and access the manual thru. it also... Our Denon front viewing is so small we can't see what our vol. is and having issues with remote makes it more difficult so this is a great option without pur. Of Universal remote... :)

    wish there would be an ability to have the audio go to the ohone app and headphones instead of just on the front panel

    Works great just wish it wouldn't switch to bluetooth when I connect it again to change the volume
  • Needs default customizations but Nov 3, 2017

    It seems to support most of the basic features that the AVR has, which is itself a basic model.

    App is horrible ! A simple task of bluetooth connection is obviously more than Denon is capable of handling. Returning receiver for a Yamaha, that app functions and more than a basic remote!

    The app would be useful if the BT connection was not forced as an audio device. I like the interface, and using my phone as a volume and source control for the receiver would be amazing IF there was an option to connect to the receiver NOT as an audio device so I can have sound (separately) on both my phone and the receiver. Unless that is changed I will not use nor will I recommend this app to anyone else.

    App works only on initial setup. Fails to connect there after. If you do a complete av system reset it will work once. Who wants to do this every time you want to listen to music from your phone. You will also have to run eq microphone calibration everytime. Posted question on Denon's web site. They deleted post. No reason given. Sent question to software developer. No reply. Great customer service.

    You pair, you start, then few seconds and it drops the connection. To start again, the device reboot to reconnect, switch to something else and few seconds later it drops. With so many complaints from so many customers for so long and no fix. One would think the developer would have been fired by now but may be Mr. Denon himself is the developer. What a shame.

    Not compatible with Roku televisions. This could be an amazing app given wifi control allows control without the need for the receiver to be in Eyesite (receiver can be in a closet or closed door cabinet). Unfortunately the app continually loses connection, can’t shut/exit the Settings screen and defaults to radio/tuner when you open the app/connect to wifi...sad

    BT is inconsistent - connected from phone via BT to device. Playing music as expected. Open app to change volume on device. App disconnects BT for audio and then tells me BT connection failed. Huh? Developers need to update the app accordingly. Just discovered that when the app asks to turn BT on, and you click cancel, it turns it off. That doesn't make any sense. As one reviewer commented, I don't need to be asked about BT being on. App needs some common sense.

    Wasn’t a great app before, but it worked on my iPhone 6 with iOS 10. Upgraded to an iPhone 7 and iOS 11 and it no longer functions at all. Connects for a few seconds and then disconnects. Can’t stream via Bluetooth and it doesn’t work as a remote. This was one of the reasons I chose this receiver. Very disappointing.

    Works well but because most phones close background apps, everytime i bring the app up, i have to reconnect. That's not so annoying, but what is super annoying is that when i reconnect, it defaults to "bluetooth" input which disrupts my movie! PLEASE FIX!
  • Can’t get past set up menu Dec 15, 2018

    I did everything that is said to do on the set up menu. And when I tried to go back into the app, I keep getting a message about the song was not fully downloaded from the cloud or may be DRM protected. Use the default music app to download this song?

    Awful app, defaults to bluetooth input and you cant change it, keeps disconnecting and then when you connect again changes input to bluetooth, useless app, going to delete app and try something else.

    App started self disconnecting a month ago randomly.. no eq. Maybe my service but 2 star rating for now.

    The issue is every time you open the app you have to give permission to turn the Bluetooth on and then regardless of the source you are in, it switches to Bluetooth! It is very annoying because im watching a movie on Blu-ray and want to lower the volume only but it changes the channel to Bluetooth first and i have to select the Blu-ray again and lower the volume! This whole process is very inconvenient and takes around 2min while the movie is being played in the background.

    Always having to delete this app then go back to play store and download because of malfunction - frustrating. Also , don't know why it has to go to bluetooth input on startup. That's just a couple issues with it among many others.

    I was downloading this app because I need a remote control for the Denon receiver that I just purchased because it did not come with a remote control however to Bluetooth connect my phone to the device I have to have the remote control that doesn't make any sense really disappointed
