Summary: I installed a few home theaters using the old 3805 and the customers were literally left in shock. Especially the one in which the 3805 was used in a by-amp situation were it ran mids and highs on some large Polk Audio towers and 3 Polk centers.
Summary: I agree with all the good things that have been said and I have just a few brief comments to add. The remote takes time to get used to. I had to call Denon Support a few times for more than a year every now and then to learn what I needed. Now I love it. My manual is dog-earred.
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.
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.
Summary: I would strongly recommend this receiver to the home theater user that is looking for an above average system. Boxing was standard for this type of electronic component and was complete with testing microphone, complete manual, and remote control.
Pros: Very good range of input and output options.
Summary: This receiver has many features and options. The instruction booklet is over 100 pages with multiple columns. So before buying, I would suggest also looking at professional reviews, my review will be from a consumer's point of view. Build: Solid and very heavy.
Pros: Solid build quality, excellent audio, many features
Cons: Some accessories, connections should have been better
