Summary: This Receiver deliver everything advertise and for me it deserves a five star rating. I love this receiver sound quality and picture. That was not the receiver I originally wanted, but that one was giving to me as a birthday present. I would not believe I would fall in love with this Denon receiver. After I hook it up and hear the sound coming out I could not believe my hear. I would recommend this receiver to anyone serious about their sound quality.
Summary: We purchased a new Denon receiver to go with the new Samsung Smart TV we purchased. The unit works very well and was easy to install. But, the best part of the product is their customer support. I have had to call them several times and they solved every problem quickly. They are really great.
Summary: I can not use my DVR device through HDMI and must use component. This is true for Motorola and now most recently TiVO. You would think that if you spend this kind of money on a unit it would work . Additionally when I use HDMI the picture is not even close to as crisp on the PS3 or XBox as if I hook it up directly to the TV. I feel robbed. Denon is supposed to be a great brand and have great products. This does not even have a grounding wire nor a place to attach one..
Summary: I have owned and used the Denon 2311CI, on a daily basis for 18 months. I have been extremely happy with the power and sound from the reciever. I have it connected to a set of Definitive Technology Speakers for my 7.1 surround. I have my PS3 and cable box connected on HDMI inputs and they have worked flawlessly together. I am happy with the 3D function as well, the video signal passes through the receiver without affecting the picture on my Samsung 3DTV.
Summary: I'm a denon fan all the equipment that I purchased from them has been exceptional, unfortunately with my 2311ci unit I have had nothing but trouble. This could possibly be because it was a refurbished unit. The first day I received the unit I hooked it up and could not get a picture. I spoke with denon tech support and confirmed what I had already guessed my HDMI Board was causing the no video issue. I Had to ship it out the next day to new jersey to have them fix it.
