Summary: I'm more of an audiophile than a movie buff so with that said, the AVR-2310ci was the last great audio/video receiver offered by Denon.

An Affordable and Feature-Rich 7.1 A/V HDMI Receiver
20 November 2010
Summary: Pros: Serious number of inputs; 5:1 surround sound; output to (2) sets of speakers Cons: None, no really Bottom-Line: The Denon AVR-2310CI works and works well and I am glad I choose it; it works for now and there is still ample room for expansion.
Summary: I bought the AVR-2310CI for our bedroom surround system based on several months of very satisfactory performance from the AVR-3310CI we bought for our main home theater system. Both receivers replace nearly 10-year-old JVC models that still work fine, but lack HDMI outputs.
Summary: I purchased the Denon AVR2310 after spending weeks doing research, both online and in stores. I settled on this model for several reasons: 1) Price. It was within the price range I wanted to pay without being "inexpensive". 2) Capabilities.
Summary: I'm just going to comment on the FM Receiver for the 2310, which disappointed me. There is no signal strength indicator, so if you're positioning an antenna, you're on your own. But more annoying is the hiss I hear on most FM stations.
Summary: The unit has cosposite and component inputs, but I couldn't get video out when I hooked up a Sony DVD/VCR unit to either of these inputs. The manual indicated that if the source unit didn't have an HDMI feature that locks out pirated materials, then hook it up using the composite inputs.
