Many think home theater systems are an expensive and complicated luxury. Fortunately, for the savvy shopper, this is a misconception. If you regularly play video games or watch movies, sports or shows on your TV, you don't have to settle for the mediocre sound of your TV's built-in speakers simply because you can't splurge on a series of separate AV components.

A Home Theater System Right Out of the Box
Home theaters vary widely, and there are convenient solutions available now that can make your favorite pastime more pleasurable and exciting without breaking the bank. With the purchase of a home theater-in-a-box (HTIB), you can easily create a home theater system that you and your family can enjoy now and for years to come.
A Home Theater System for the Smart and Savvy Consumer
A typical all-in-one home theater system includes a surround sound home theatre receiver, a set of compact speakers (including a subwoofer), a remote control, and an owner's manual. Although 7.1 channel home theater systems are being marketed, a 5.1 channel configuration is the current de facto standard for surround sound.
Essentially, the home theater package best suited to the needs of the everyday user will contain:
- A surround sound receiver complete with all the necessary inputs and ports, clearly labeled and conveniently located
- Basic center and satellite speakers sized appropriately for the shelving in your den, dorm or living room
- A powerful yet unobtrusive subwoofer
An aesthetically pleasing design and an operating manual with easy-to-read setup instructions are additional perks to look for when shopping for a home theater system.
Simple Is Best: A Home Theater System Designed With the Customer in Mind
Keeping in mind the importance of satisfying each and every one of our customers – the audiophile, cinephile, non-techie, or casual TV watcher – at Denon, we have developed a home theater system that is not only superbly crafted and precision engineered to sound amazing but also easy to install and operate.
The brains and brawn of our DHT-1513BA Home Theater System is our AVR-1513 5.1 channel 3D pass-through home theater receiver featuring discrete circuitry, compressed audio restoration technology, and four HDMI inputs. An excellent surround sound speaker system from Boston Acoustics enables the receiver to produce an immersive soundstage.
The system also features an intuitive graphical user interface and a handy "Setup Assistant" that prompts you through the initial setup process. This ensures a frustration-free installation every time. Our GUI allows you to access system settings via user-friendly menus on your TV screen. And should you need additional instructions, we have supplied a Quick Setup Guide and an owner's manual on CD-ROM.

Buying a Denon Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it’s repackaged in a new box with all original accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Denon product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a full 1 year parts and labor warranty valid at any authorized Denon repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 201-762-6665)
Denon, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2011 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened it must be resold as refurbished and can’t be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we can’t provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Denon certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Denon Factory Refurbished" product.
All units are Cosmetically in Mint Condition (graded a 9 or higher on a scale of 1-10) unless otherwise stated. Very minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present, although most units show little or no signs of any usage. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused) unless noted in the description. Unfortunately, we can’t provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our factory sealed boxes.

In short, it's quite a performer. I'm really impressed with the sound quality and ease of use. The receiver is pretty straight forward in setting up, and the speakers put out a great sound. I tested with movie and music, and found no issues. The sub/speakers blend well together and there are no gaps in the frequency response, something that can occur in small speaker kits.
Being an 8 inch woofer, the sub obviously has limitations common to any small sub, but for the money I can't complain.
All in all, I'd buy it again without hesitation.
