Summary: A little tough from the start to set up but take the time and you wont believe what this receiver is capable of doing awesome sound and seperation well worth the money, definetly would buy another denon
Summary: This might be the 'old' series, but the general components quality (amps, 11.2, etc) and features (Full Audissey XT32) cannot be found on the new cheaper models. Only way to get this top quality and features is to jump to the new 4520, but ouch, that's out of my budget.
Summary: Updated- This is an amazing receiver for sure. (I previously thought I had an issue with the unit but found it was a bad ethernet cable) BACK TO 5 STARS FOR DENON!!!! Bought mine is Sep 2012 (Brand New) just before the new Model 4520 came out. The features are REALLY great with this unit. It Streams music right from my iPad/iPhone (music can only be fair quality when streaming) or run it to my computer and play FLAC (Which is the Highest and most amazing quality) music.
Summary: Needed to upgrade my whole house system to HDMI components, this was the upgraded AVR to my 8 year old Denon AVR. Excellent price compared to what I paid 8 years ago, smaller foot print and easily switched out. I didn't compare other manufacturers as I've had Denon in my house systems since 1990. Well made product, excellent performance and compatible with all my components.
Summary: Firstly I would like to say, this receiver is amazing. I really have nothing bad to say about it. Denon really have packed all the goodies into this one with 9 powerfull and fully asignable channels, HDMI, 4 zones, Auto room setup with dual subwoofer outputs and even two remotes for multi room automation. Playing my favorite movies was hauntingly realistic and makes me want to watch them all all over again! (I have over 500 DVDs) In short Denon has a cracker receiver.
Summary: This is the third Denon AVR I've bought in the last four years. They all work quite well, but the 4311ci is really phenomenal. I'm using it to drive a 7.2 setup. The Audyssey MultiEQ XT32 yields some excellent sound in my theater room. In addition to the two separately adjustable sub outputs, this receiver supports two HDMI outputs (not simultaneous). This was ideal for my application where I have a TV as well as a projector with motorized screen.
