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.
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.
Summary: If you don't have a 3D TV this is a great steal! The new model, 3311ci is $1300 and only adds 3D HDMI compatibility. The built in Rhapsody is super cool, although the Denon has lost it's network connection a couple of times, not sure why considering everything is setup DHCP.

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: Purchased this unit in the spring and have had no issues. I have a firmware upgrade screen pop up that, based on all the reviews, I have ignored. I called Denon and they also told me to ignore the update. Only problem I had with is was it was pretty confusing to customize.
Summary: I bought the AVR-3310CI for our main surround system and after several months of very satisfactory performance, I later purchased an AVR-2310CI for our bedroom system. Both receivers replace nearly 10-year-old JVC models that still work fine, but lack HDMI outputs.
Summary: I received the first one, hooked everything up, turned it on, and got nothing but static. I called Denon to see if I had missed anything. They had me reset it. That didn't help. They told me to return it. Amazon replaced it. The second arrived - hooked it up & turned it on. No network connection.
Summary: The receiver has been great - sound quality with my polk 70 series floor speakers has been awesome using standard speaker wire and banana plugs. The instruction manual is not user friendly, and I have some issues where the receiver refuses to read non-HD signal coming in via HDMI cable (i.e.
Amazing capabilities & performance, plus network capabilities!

Summary: After having spent months digitizing my CD collection and then storing the (FLAC) files on a network server, I spent a LOT of time looking for a box thru which to access my music files and then play them back thru my hi-fi system. I looked at all of the network music players (Sonus, Logitech, etc.
