Summary: This is my 3rd Denon avr receiver (Avr-3802, avr- 4306 where my first two). Nice update to the GUI interface. Lots of power, I like the Audessey eq set up, and the sound is, well, that wonderful Denon sound. Many features (I don't use most) but it has everything I need (HDMI 1.4, with ARC isn't on this but isn't an issue for me, if you need it, get the AVR-4311).
You "are there" sound imaging with outstanding multi-media and multi-room capability

Summary: The Denon sound has always been pleasing to my ear, but the AVR 4310ci receiver has taken their outstanding sound to another level. This has seven discreet amplifier circuits so you can drive up to seven speakers, or configure them to bi-amp speakers designed for it. It offers many choices for multi-media control and playback for both video and audio, with assignable HDMI, component, composite, digital coax, and digital optical inputs and outputs. Highly recommended.
Summary: Let me start of by saying that I am in the industry and know the ins and outs of this product. This is one of the most robust products that is out there, and that is why I own it. I have read several reviews on here and wanted to address some of the gripes that people had: - Remote: Denon has never been known for intuitive remotes, and most importantly they should not; since the remotes are designed to be put away after the installation.
Summary: Took a bit to get it set up with some reading and playing with the options, but it was well worth the research and time needed, the quality of the sound exceeds that of my Sony Receiver and having 7.1 surround makes a lot of difference in my media experience.
Summary: I have a 60 inch Pioneer Elite Pro-151FD. Some may disagree but many believe it is the finest television ever made. The Denon 4310 makes it better. It improves the image. It upscales ordinary 1080i to 1080p so spectacularly that it makes regular HD television look more like Blu-ray. It makes the colors richer, denser and more vivid. Forget the blacks it makes the whites just luminous. And it even smoothes out the motion. And the wonderful sound.
Summary: OMG ! OMG ! Wow!!, this bad boy packs a punch with both video and audio. Upconversion is fantastic due to anchor bay chip. HQ Renon doesn't have anything on this. I've been comparing receivers for a while now, narrowing it down to Denon and Yamaha. Both are pretty well built, but the Denon has more bang and features over the yammie. For the price you get what you paid for....excellence. I saw that owners had problems with updates, well out of the box this things rocks.
Summary: I have had the Denon 4310 for 3 weeks. I'm extremely satisfied with its options and sound quality. Beware if you are not really into fooling around with electronic setups. I'm very experienced with home theater equipment and it took me several days to really set it up right after wading through the user manual. The only problem I had with this product is the instructions which are unnecessarily complicated.
Summary: Audyssey is a wonderful addition to this powerhouse recevier. I'm using a Harmony One remote, and thanks to BatPig, the setup on the Denon AVR-4310ci was an enjoyable experience. I'll have to agree with others that the manual could use some work!
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Durable, Easy Setup, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
