Need to clarify all fine points with Trout Auctions
3 October 2011
Summary: This unit was older than I believe was represented by the model number and the remote which is not the original remote type is barely useful except to increase volume. Very disappointed in total transaction.
Will be blown away by this one! A real winner! Buy it!

Summary: This is really a winner. All the amplification anyone would ever need, all the features anyone would want. After you get familiar with the on-screen display and where everything is located in those menus, then set-up is easy. And really, I think it's fun to play around in the menus, finding all the options and tweaking everything. Audio performance is top-notch. Really clean. Plus, you can bi-wire or bi-amp (the option I am using) to drive your speakers.
Summary: I use the Denon AVR-4810CI as a pre/pro primarily in a one-room setup that is dedicated to both two-channel music as well as 7.1 channel home theater. Previous similar products I've owned have required concessions on my part, such as dramatic reductions in the midrange/treble controls of the speakers, and/or an inability to have or use specific features in order to maximize the video or audio quality of the unit itself.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality, Great Video Processing
Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Confusing Networking
