Summary: This Receiver has the right balance of everything for me. 130 watts of solid Denon power drives my system nicely. My front channels are a 15 and large horn made by Electrovoice. I use a JBL 2-10" and a horn for my Center channel and the rest are Electrovoice 12" 2 ways from a theatre. It sounds fabulous. I also use the ethernet connection which allows me play music from my computer. Even the turntable preamps are nice and quiet with warmth and are very dynamic.
Summary: With quality speakers, this receiver delivers pure, clean audio. It is solid and logical. Many features, versatile connectivity. Detailed user manual. Decided on this model because of top CNet editors review, ratings by owners and others. I am not disappointed.
Summary: Awesome power with HDMI switching. Just upgraded from the AVR-3805 and this thing is the bomb. Buy one before they go away because the new technology is built cheaper and doesn't have the sound of these older receivers.
This is the most cutting-edge reciever i've ever seen!

Summary: The Denon AVR-4306 offers the best combination of cutting-edge features and superb sound quality of any receiver that i've ever seen and tested. One if it's only downsides is that it's rather expensive and intimidating complexity may put off home-theater newbies. There is also no built-in decoding for next-gen HD-DVD and Blu-ray audio formats and no HD Radio.
