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: 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.
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: Few products are as adaptable – or as complicated – as a modern multichannel amp. The manual for Denon ’s new AVR-3311, for example, extends to 114 pages – providing ample evidence that, from the completeness of its network features to the quality of its video and audio processing, it represents the current state of the AV art.
Pros: Apple iPhone 4, Exceptional media and network features, overall flexibility, articulate, detailed sound
Excerpt: Mit seinen sieben Endstufen kann der neue AVR-3311 bis zu elf verschieden platzierte Lautsprecher ansteuern. Je nach Lust und Laune setzt man per Dolby ProLogic IIz auf zusätzliche Höhenkanäle für stärker von oben ortbare Effekte oder wählt Audyssey DSX und damit zwei Breitenkanäle für noch weiter nach außen versetzte Boxen. Zudem ist der AVR-3311 mit aktueller HDMI-1.4a-Technik auch für 3D bestens gerüstet.
