Summary: Returned a Yamaha RX-V673 in order to buy this one instead. It was > 2Xs the price, but has the Pre-Outs for all channels. If you do not need pre-outs, I would opt for the Yamaha for the price. Denon makes a good system, but you have to pay for it.
Summary: This unit is awesome! I am using Polk Audio Satellites with a 10in subwoofer. I have heard a few people complain about the remote control but honestly I don't know what else it could do. It does everything needed unless they prefer a LCD screen remote. It is not the easiest to set up.It takes a few trial and error speaker adjustments to get that sound you may like.
Summary: I bought this AV receiver to be the centerpiece to my multi-room theater system. I am utilizing all 3 zones but have relied on external amplification for all zones with the exception zone 2. The reason for external amplification is that they are more capable at powering the speakers that I have chosen. I don't expect that many people would need to go this route, however it's great that the amplifier allows for external amplifiers through RCA pre-outs if needed.
Summary: I've had Denon equipment before (AVP 5000) and while the sound is very good it is still a bit short of perfect, the 5000 was just a hair better and more accurate. The power amp section doesn't seem to have the punch and clarity of the POA 5000 (rated at 100w / ch) even though it is supposed to have higher power amplification. The upscaling doesn't appear to make any significant difference on 480 sources (don't have a 4K tv so can't speak to that part of the upscaling).
Denon AVR-3313CI Perfect Receiver For New Technology

Summary: Installed my new Denon AVR with new 65" Samsung HD TV, Samsung Blu Ray and speaker switch. COnnections were a breeze with HDMI and I now have superior surround sound and video in my Great Room and can listen to great sound in 4 other rooms in my house. Controls and setup are quite easy.
Summary: I always buy Denon. The reason is that they have a phono input something you don't find in others. The sound is excellent the audissy helps a lot to set it up. And the model was discounted because they have a new one. Who cares.
Summary: Installation was easy and it works great with my Samsung PN64E7000 TV and Samsung BluRay player. Would love to be able to upgrade to Denon BluRay player model that works with this through Denon Link.
Good sound, Loaded with features, but a little quirky

Summary: I know relatively little about receivers and can't help with the technical aspects of this receiver. It took me several weeks to really learn how to use it,and once I did I was very pleased with my 7.2 system. However, my main complaint, is that in order to use the "anynet" feature, which is very handy as it turns everything on with one selection (ie bluray player), but when you do have this feature activated on your TV everytime you turn the receiver on just to watch...
