Finally! A modern receiver for SACD audiophiles

GoBears, Amazon
5 days ago
  • Summary: I am in the process of upgrading my home hi-fi to play both SACD's and connect to the newer HDMI gadgets. The Denon AVR-3808CI is the ONLY modern AV receiver I found that has BOTH HDMI as well as 5-channel analog inputs for SACD hookup. So I am sold. I am told Denon's HDMI may also decode DSD but I like to do things the old-fashioned way, so analog inputs are the way to go!

Excellent Audio and Video Quality

  • Summary: I have owned this AVR for over 3 years, bought it refurbished for $999 (while the MSRP was about $1500 at the time.) Can't find a single negative thing to say about the quality of the sound and video this unit produces. When I bought it I had an older DVD player that I wasn't very pleased with in terms of the quality of the video output on my 50" Panasonic plasma monitor.
  • Pros: top quality audio/video, well-built, 3 zones, 140-Watts
  • Cons: somewhat awkward/convoluted GUI, remote could have been simpler

Sound Stopped Working after a Few Years

Kevin F Hutto, Amazon
25 June 2012
  • Summary: I purchased a Denon AVR-3808CI with high expectations. The unit itself is about 4 years old and out of warranty. The unit had historically performed well as expected until this week. My son was playing Playstation through the unit and all of a sudden, the sound cut out in the middle of his game and has never returned. The Denon folks tried to troubleshoot the issue and finally said I needed to take the unit in for service.

Great reciever a bit hard to set up

jb4tahoe, Ebay
8 May 2012
  • Summary: We bought this receiver because of our previous receiver was a Denon AVR-3300 that worked excellent for 10 years. It didn't have the new HDMI inputs required for the new HD video. The sound once set up is really amazing. The set up was not really intuitive but Denon thankfully has a great help line. It seems like the receiver will be a great performer for a long time to come.
