Full 7.2 use

Edward III "Alpha Sixx", Amazon
13 February 2011
  • Summary: I have been in to car audio and Home Theater since the early 90's and have been through around 7 different receivers in that time, but by far this is the most advanced and beautiful sounding of them all. I have always been a die hard Pioneer fan but the 4308ci had what I wanted as far as features and power. This is my 1st Denon receiver it is very easy to use and it was very easy to set up without even really messing with the instruction manual.

Denon AV Receiver 4308CI

Sid Kirkland "sid@sidkirkland.com", Amazon
31 December 2009
  • Summary: I searched for quite a while before I decided to purchase this Denon Receiver. I'm not an expert by any means and was very nervous about purchasing the right product. I easily found a lot of reviews for Denon and this specific receiver and it seemed like the right choice, so I jump in. While I waited for it to arrive, I discovered that you can download the manuals for all of Denon's Receivers online at their website - [...].

Excellent Product But....a little patience required

H. K. Huynh, Amazon
17 December 2009
  • Summary: If you want an excellent AV with all the bells and whistle, buy this Denon. However, be prepared to have a lot of patience w/ its user manual. Read it once....or twice. And if you're still foggy as to what it's really saying, then try this: [...]. This is a "Please....Speak English" kind of manual specifically written for Denon AV. I used it to get the best out of my unit. By the way, try to team this up w/ the Denon DVD-3800BDCI blu ray (currently for sale @539 vs.

Awesome receiver

Alberto Vargas, Amazon
15 May 2009
  • Summary: As the Blu Ray / HDTV bug bit me, I had to upgrade to a receiver with HDMI switching. I upgraded from a Rotel receiver which did not support HDMI. I did quite a bit of research and auditioning before I chose this Denon. The important features for me were HDMI switching (with full support for Dolby TrueHD and the rest of the Blu Ray sound formats) and Audissey room calibration.

a lot of performance for the money

Richard G. Williams, Amazon
30 April 2009
  • Summary: Just bought this unit as an replacement for my Denon 4802R 7.1 THX AV receiver. This new unit while not THX rated out performs the other in every area. Both units were driving a set of M&K S-150 THX speakers in a 7.1 configuration. The 4308CI made more of a improvement than I would have expected. I bought the new unit for improved features which it has more than I'll ever use...the improved sound is a bonus.

Big change from older technology

Dennis F. Galletta "dennis_galletta", Amazon
6 April 2009
  • Summary: This receiver was quite costly so my expectations were high. I had an older THX but non-DTS model Denon, and the sound was wonderful. The most striking difference I see is that when my cable company has a dropout, the previous Denon used to take a full second or two for the digital processor to snap back in with sound (with a loud 'tick' sound). This also happened with DVD switching from layer 1 to layer 2 in the middle of the movie. So this one has no perceptible delay.

Harmonic A/V Convergence

S. Lubman, Amazon
7 December 2008
  • Summary: After an hour or so of firmware upgrades I finally got to test drive the AVR-4308CI and I am pleased to report that the performance is nothing less than stunning. The process was easy, except for setting up the wireless network connectivity. I had to use the remote to 'kick start' the configuration. After that it was web interface all the way. Simply phenomenal HD performance when paired with the Panasonic bdp35k and the Samsung 750 series 52" LCD.

  • Summary: The setup is : Denon AVR 4308 Denon DVD 1940 Polk ATi 7 family of speakers with Polk CS 5 center speaker Sanyo PLV Z 5 projector As am based in Bangalore, India, I have constraints on access to the latest goodies, especially media, and at price that folks in US/UK enjoy! It was almost on impulse that I bought the 4308 in Dec 2007, especialy with the Internet Radio feature. The amp + Dvd player combo is simply awesome.

Denon AVR-4308CI Next Generation A/V Multi-Source/Zone w/ Network Streaming Receiver

M Joseph "M&J", Amazon
27 March 2008
  • Summary: The item is one of the best I've ever bought. The quality of the product is amazing. I already have an AVR 4306, but without a doubt the AVR 4308CI is better and worth the money.
