Does anyone have one of these

If so, and probably a stupid question, does it do audio over HDMI as my el cheapo Onkyo only does image over HDMI and audio through coax, optical or RCA. 

If this one doesn't rate so well, the other options I'm looking at are the Yamaha  RXV467 or the Pioneer VSX520.

Opinions on any of the above would be welcome.

The 391 is the most basic of Denon amps - BUT, it does offer audio and video over HDMI, as well as 3D support.
What it doesn't offer, however, is any form of automatic calibration microphone, video upscaling, or, to my knowledge - MP3 enhancement. The power is down on other amps, as is the number of outputs.
It is however, cheap as chips.
The Yamaha would be simple for the whole family to use (the Scene functions are pretty choice) and the Pioneer is also a pretty nice amp for the $'s.
If you're an 'HDMI only' user with efficient speakers, you probably can't go wrong with any of the above.
