Excerpt: I don't deal with change very well. My wife once moved my pear preserves from the bottom shelf of the fridge to the one right above it. They may as well have been in a refrigerator in Guadalajara in an alternate universe, as far as I was concerned. When Sunfire added protruding knobs to its fifth-generation Theater Grand Processor, I threw a hissy fit of Sheldon proportions. In print, no less.
Pros: Audyssey DSX Processing, Exceptional sound quality, Amazingly intuitive interface, given the sophistication of the receiver and its numerous features, 3D capable with native support for all of the latest lossless audio formats, No iPod dock necessary, Robust networking capabilites, Wonderful build quality and aesthetics
Cons: Craptastic remote, may I suggest a universal instead?, Not enough channels of amplification to use both height and width channels with DSX, iPhone/iPod Touch app is a little slow
Excerpt: Denon’s latest adds a wealth of control options and networked music to its strong fundamental performance. The audio performance is based on the unit’s seven power amplifiers, each rated at 125W under true high-fidelity criteria (with two channels running at a time). All the discrete multichannel digital audio formats are supported (though it doesn’t decode Direct Stream Digital from SACD).
Excerpt: Almost a year after the introduction of Apple’s AirPlay technology – which is an easy way to stream audio, video and photos from a Mac or iOS device over a local network – we’re finally being able to buy non-Apple products which support it.
Conclusion: Zum Firmenjubiläum schüttelt Denon mit dem preisgünstigen AVR-3311 ein attraktives Angebot aus dem Ärmel. Ein paar Winzigkeiten gibt es zwar zu bemängeln, doch die sehr gute Ausstattung und der starke Klang verdienen einen Preistipp.
