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: 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 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.
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.
Summary: OK so I figured that if I bought a higher end receiver I'd get higher end quality. WRONG! This piece of Chinese junk has had the Ethernet card go out twice now. And when taking it in to the service center they never have the part available so it's a two month wait while the part gets shipped from the far east. Save your money and buy something more reliable, my last receiver was an Onkyo that was built like a tank and was still going strong but had no support for HDMI.
Summary: Great AVR! I replaced an Denon AVR5500, (about 3 times the price), that was about 12 years old...and this new one is far more technologically superior. I loe all the HDMI Ports. Excellent Audio/Video Receiver if you reallywant the best possible sound from all your components. Highly recommended!
Summary: I purchased this receiver to replace an older, high end, Onkyo receiver. I wanted to upgrade mainly for the ability to use digital video switching; the Onkyo only supported component and did not have any HDMI or up-conversion support. I have been a fan of Denon products for a long time now. I used to sell them as an employee of a high end electronics retailer and was fairly certain I would settle on a Denon receiver.
Summary: Ordered this from warehouse deals at Amazon, 1st time they sent an old Denon amp from a few years ago in the right box, this one was correct but have not been able to get it to work. This is a beautiful amp with lots of menus, connections, looks like the internet radio would be fantastic-if only I could hear something. We have tried playing from radio, cd's, radio, rewiring all of the speakers, trying just two of them, plugging in headphones-never a sound.
