Excerpt: Denon has long been among the most nimble of the major manufacturers of audio/video receivers. If a feature of any significance raises its head above the parapet, Denon nails it faster than just about anyone—and often spreads it among many models. You might quibble over the value of, say, the company’s quick and near-universal inclusion of multiple height-channel surround enhancements.
Excerpt: This mall's got everything - Joliet Jake Blues It is distinctly possible that Denon 's AVR-3312CI A/V receiver is one of the most perfect home theater products ever released. It offers almost every bell and whistle imaginable; including Apple's AirPlay (awkward pause before pumping the air with one's clenched fist while facing Cupertino) and a remarkable array of connection options considering its price tag.
Pros: Incredible value for the money, Very powerful sounding amplifier, Enough inputs/outputs for multiple home theater systems, Excellent with movies and music, Easy to set-up and optimize, AirPlay, Internet Radio, So many features!
Cons: Too many features?, Remote app doesn't always work properly, Slightly recessed sounding at low listening levels
Excerpt: Network-ready A/V components have been around for a few years now, but most fail to do much more than provide awkward interfaces for streaming video and music services – hardly a compelling ‘integrated’ experience. But Denon, long hailed in Japan and abroad for a history of audio innovation that stretches back over 100 years, is poised to release a line up of cutting-edge networked A/V Receivers that aim to tie together your entire media-universe within one convenient...
Excerpt: Of course, the two surround amplifiers can be redirected in a number of ways, including biamplification of the front channels, driving either of the other two zones (or both at once in mono mode!), or driving separate main room stereo speakers. The idea with this last option is that you might have one set of front speakers as part of your normal surround speaker system, plus an extra pair of especially beloved stereo speakers for music listening.
Excerpt: I must have been snoozing last year as I missed Denon’s AVR-3311 completely. That well specified £1,200 receiver forms the base on which the AVR-3312 is built, updated and refined. And it’s damn fine news for potential buyers that this year’s contender comes in £200 cheaper. Where the money has been saved is a mystery.
Pros: Huge sound; AirPlay as standard; packed with features; easy to use
Cons: Not as spacious sounding as some; fierce competition
Summary: Der Denon AVR-3312 ist jeden Cent wert, weil er einen präzisen, sehr dynamischen Klang, viele Klangregler und zahlreiche moderne Multimedia-Funktionen bietet. Als einziger Minuspunkt kristallisierte sich im Testbetrieb die mangelnde Basspower ohne Subwoofer heraus, aber das fällt kaum ins Gewicht im Vergleich zu seinen Stärken. Im Internet ist der Receiver bereits für 900 Euro erhältlich. Ein noch günstigerer AV-Receiver mit 3D-Darstellung ist hier zu finden.
Excerpt: Denon AVR-3312 er udstyret med internetradio og netværksstreaming foruden indbygget støtte for Apple AirPlay. En egen fjernbetjenings app til både Apple iOs og Android gør det nemmere at bruge smartphones eller tablets som fjernbetjening. Vi har testet Apple-versionen og kan konstatere, at det er den mest brugervenlige, vi hidtil har testet af sin slags.
