Denon AVR 2808CI 7.1 channel Receiver, plain awesome

7ccfb67d13c5ec41878aad34dc5f024c70960401, Ebay
23 May 2010
  • Summary: I have used Denon previously and this one upgraded my system. I was using 7.1 before as this one is. Yes, there is a lot of features inside this black box, and it just doesn't plug and play. Even with the experience of going through setup once before, you can expect to spend at least three days getting it all together. In the end, it is well worth it. Would definitely buy another.

Almost Perfect

Juan A. Conti, Amazon
15 June 2009
  • Summary: The receiver has an amazing quality sound, the only complain is that has just 2 HDMI input. You can put a HDMI switch for less than 50$ and have it complete as another model more expensive.

GREAT SOUND QUALITY

R. Lie "RL", Amazon
31 December 2008
  • Summary: I have owned many different midrange receiver in the past, from Sony, Marantz, Nakamichi, Pioneer to Yamaha. Until I got this Denon 2808, Marantz and Nakamichi sounds real good. But this Denon just simply surpass all of them in sound quality. Because of that, and because I have got this receiver on sale for $600, it made me in debt if I were not to write a review.

Versatile, Great Spec, Great Upscale Video

Double T, Amazon
25 December 2008
  • Summary: I have this for several days only, but I am very satisfied with what I have experienced with this unit already. Yes, I wish there are more than two HDMI's. I can buy one with similar price range with 4 HDMI inputs, but considering the other features and audio spec, I decided to buy this when it was on sale in a national chain.

Great receiver at half price; but not at full price- Go with the AVR-2809

Mark Knutson, Amazon
22 December 2008
  • Summary: The receiver was received quickly and very well packed. At half price a good deal. The Denon AVR-2808CI is a powerful and well featured receiver despite having only two HDMI inputs. The set-up is a bit confusing and not well explained,but after a while and with the help of on screen tv display, a hand drawn map of connections you made you can master it. The learning remote does many of the functions that the rest of the remotes on the table do.

Incredible processor, for an incredible price

S. Prichard, Amazon
23 November 2008
  • Summary: Pros: has all the current codecs and processing power that anyone could need. Also has great, clean power output. Finally, it has preamp outs for upgrading to a better amp. Cons: only has two HDMI inputs (that's all I needed though, and the replacement model has 4), is pretty bulky, and draws a ton of power. All of these are expected though.

Amazing reciever

C. Elliott, Amazon
28 October 2008
  • Summary: The Denon AVR-2808CI has all the bells and whistles one could want or needed. It sounds great weather your using it for the tv surround or watching a movie. The manual is great at telling you what cables to use where and what kind you can use. But it is of no help when setting the unit up. The on screen menu is very cumbersome and not very well laid out. This reciever is deff. not a plug'n'play deal.

Best Bang for Your Buck Receiver - Anywhere

K. Walker "K-Dogg", Amazon
10 July 2008
  • Summary: I have 3 Denon (including two of these) and a Harmon Kardon receiver as well as past experience with Onkyo systems. All are nice units, but I've become a true Denon fan with the advent of the AVR-2807 and AVR-2808 receivers. These are so very configurable and powerful, look fantastic (clean with great onscreen information & settings), crystal clear sound and more "real" features you need than most of the other players out there.

Sound Is Great...All The Newest Features...Priced Great

Win2000, Amazon
10 July 2008
  • Summary: Well, just bought this receiver last week and hooked it up a few days ago. I am running it with a pair of Definitive Tech BP7006's in front with a Def Tech 2002 center and a pair of Speakercraft AIM 8's in my ceiling for the rear channels...also using a Def Tech Supercube 2 in this system. The sound is great...clean sound and a lot of "punch" while watching movies...especially action movies.
