Summary: I purchased this amp in July of 2010. I didn't have the money for speakers so i hooked it up and was using it as a passthrough. i finally ordered a set of Definitive Technologies speakers, which by the way are fantastic. I installed the speakers and had a professional company do the hook - up and to my dismay the internet portion of the amp would not work. At the time the amp was about 2-3 months out of their two year warranty.
Summary: My Denon 3310CI produces excellent sound. It has all the features I need and want. I expecially like its networking capability, which allows me to stream digital music from my computers and take full advantage of Denon's high quality built-in DAC. Unfortunatelly, the network interface card in the 3310CI is not a reliable component. My NIC stopped working just after 2-1/2 years.
Summary: THIS RECIEVER IS AWESOME IT IS PACKED WITH FEATURES AND REALLY HAS A CLEAR CLEAN SOUND...THE OWNERS MANUAL IS A LITTLE INTIMIDATING BUT IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT STEREOS YOU WILL HAVE NO PROBLEM AND I READ OTHER REVIEWS AND I HAVENT HAD 1 ISSUE LIKE ANYONE ELSE..
Summary: I, as well as many others have had problems with the network connectivity completely crashing. I bought this unit so I could store music on my computer and stream to the Denon. The network card has crashed and will NOT connect to my music server. I have had some great Denon equipment in the past but this is a POS to be avoided at all costs.
Summary: I read the various reviews and I can only say is after more than 2 years this has been the best receiver I've owned. Great amp power, no problems, lost of inputs and features, still plays DVD and Blu-Ray audio perfectly. The back in out connections and speaker connects are good, and it was about as easy to get it all wired as could be expected.
Summary: I bought the AVR-3310CI via amazon.com in May of 2010. It weighed in less than my AVR-3805's weight. I wondered why. Could it be that the power supply is not as beefy as before? Or could the power amplifiers be the issue? I connected it to my system and was very pleased with the results. I knew about the network card issue, but thought I could tread lightly and get around it.
Summary: Bought this about a year ago on amazon for $586 (no tax or shipping). Main concern was to get quality audio sound and RCA pre outs for Klipsch XF 48 amplified tower speakers (required speaker RCAs to use built in amps). Had a Denon 1609 and liked the sound, so I knew that would be nice. Have yet to use a lot of the fancier features, so no firmware nightmares haha. Has a lot of flexibility which I'll probably use to bi amp a pair of Mirage OMDR rear surrounds.

Summary: Alright, so I have had this unit since December of 2009. I run this thing pretty hard, and unfortunately make it work harder by pushing my quite large Axiom M80 4 ohm speakers; the receiver is only good down to 6 ohms. I know this isn't great for the receiver, but I am too poor to buy a separate amp. Also, this thing runs about.... 12 hours a day, at least, 98% of the time. I am always home always listening to music.
Denon Quality Is Poor. Two Denon AVR-3310CI receivers failed.

Summary: This review is for the AVR-3310CI and probably the AVR-3311CI (per other reviews). I usually do not write reviews. However, after buying two of these AVR-3310CI receivers at different times (6/2010 & 11/2010) and having both fail I feel impelled to give my story. The first one failed twice so far. The networking card twice and then the video. This one is still in the shop and it has been there 3 weeks so far. The second one has just failed with it's network card.
