Plenty of power

  • Summary: The 3808CI has plenty of power. Audyssey sounds great. I purchased the upgrade package when it came available. I owned this for 3 yrs. before upgrading to a Denon A100 and gave the 3808 to my son. Still in use today.
  • Pros: Ez setup and Audyssey

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.
  • Pros: top quality audio/video, well-built, 3 zones, 140-Watts
  • Cons: somewhat awkward/convoluted GUI, remote could have been simpler

Stellar Mid-Budget Receiver!

M. Adamson "sports carma", Amazon
20 June 2009
  • Summary: I replaced my previous Denon receiver (2802) with this gem after upgrading my speakers to an Infinity Nine system. And what a great move! Other reviews I read noted that these speakers take a lot to drive (preferably somewhere between 120-150W) - which was the primary motivation for moving up.

Great receiver!

UofM Tiger, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been waiting a while for "the perfect receiver". However, I have come to the conclusion that this is as close to perfect as I am going to find for my needs right now. I am using all 4 HDMI inputs (PS3, Oppo 980H, Directv HR20, and a Sony Vaio computer).

A great value!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • Summary: I received my 3808CI last week. What a great value! When I was younger I worked as a sound engineer and even though I have moved on professionally since then I have always chosen my audio equipment with an emphasis on quality and value - bang for the buck.

Great Mid Range AV Receiver

marmotman, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • Summary: Denon's 3808CI has outstanding build quality, a new easy to use GUI, and the latest and greatest in HDMI switching. I am using it to run my Aperion Audio 633T's, 632LR's, 634VAC center, and a Aperion 12" powered sub.

Great, but not for the technically challenged

W. Stohler, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • Summary: I bought this receiver because it has 4 HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. The back side seems spartan with only 4 HDMI cables and one subwoofer cable attached, and now I don't have any use for a half dozen sets of high quality RCA cables!

I have tried several AVR's

Steve C. Brown, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • Summary: This unit is the real deal. It provides the granularity a semi-technical person will inevitably want. Other AVRs sound just as good, but the cutomization and outstanding GUI is the difference, and the video scaling is solid.

Solidly Denon

VintageP, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • Summary: I have used a Denon AVR 4800 for some years and wanted to upgrade for uncompressed audio and video switching through HDMI. Shipment came promptly in great condition and this receiver rocks just as hard as its predecessors did.
