What customers say about "Key Specs"
Denon AVR-4308CI Multizone Home Theater Receiver with Network Streaming and Wi-Fi
  • Simply phenomenal HD performance when paired with the Panasonic bdp35k and the Samsung 750 series 52" LCD.
  • Very high quality and great flexibility with a somewhat challenging set-up; highly recommended!
  • Lot's of power and clean sound. Each channel is easily idenfitied. Very pleased!
  • 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.
  • HD radio, 4 HDMI, 140 Watt multizone output, good value for price point.
Denon AVR-4310CI 7.1-Channel Multi-Zone Home Theater Receiver
  • Lots of power, I like the Audessey eq set up, and the sound is, well, that wonderful Denon sound.
  • If you like to tinker around, you'll be awarded with a nice, warm, powerful sound, great video, and more than enough inputs and features.
  • Without doubt the best deal out there for a top rate A/V receiver. Great audio and video. Does SACD and DVD-A.
  • If you want a solid piece of gear that sounds and looks great, then this is for you. I
  • The Denon sound has always been pleasing to my ear, but the AVR 4310ci receiver has taken their outstanding sound to another level.

What customers say about "Features"
Denon AVR-4308CI Multizone Home Theater Receiver with Network Streaming and Wi-Fi
  • This unit was very easy to set up right out of the box. The audio sound from LPCM Uncompressed, Dolby True HD, or DTS MA HD Blu ray's is amazing.
  • Great quality picture and sound, excellent build quality, nice display, GUI interface, easy to assign/rename imputs.
  • 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.
  • I have a Mac Book Pro with a Windows environment which is where I tried to get the Media Player and Twonky working properly. In the end, my goals were not being reached.
  • The Audyssey is a nice feature for setting up the theater room, but the receiver itself has proven completely useless for managing large music collections.
Denon AVR-4310CI 7.1-Channel Multi-Zone Home Theater Receiver
  • This is my 3rd Denon avr receiver (Avr-3802, avr- 4306 where my first two). Nice update to the GUI interface.
  • This has seven discreet amplifier circuits so you can drive up to seven speakers, or configure them to bi-amp speakers designed for it.
  • The menu is clear and convenient, you don’t have to figure it out for a long time, which saves a lot of time.
  • The user interface is not joyous, and I had to buy a Harmony universal remote because I couldn't deal with the peculiar remote control Denon.
  • This is my 5th denon reciever and my card problem from day one...not user friendly ...networking barely usable and extremely slow...

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Denon AVR-4308CI Multizone Home Theater Receiver with Network Streaming and Wi-Fi
  • I had no idea the diversity of content available on the net, and I was happily surprised at the high fidelity when paired with a cable modem connection.
  • I removed about 20lbs of AV and audio cables from my setup when migrating to HDMI. A nice plus.
  • I have used the Denon AVR-4308ci receiver for about month now and have been impressed with the improvement of the picture quality produced by my 1080p projector using the HDMI.
  • The 4308ci is one of a very few home theater receivers that has two HDMI outputs so it can support a projector and a flat panel display concurrently.
  • The process was easy, except for setting up the wireless network connectivity. I had to use the remote to 'kick start' the configuration.
Denon AVR-4310CI 7.1-Channel Multi-Zone Home Theater Receiver
  • The denon switching and HDMI boards are some of the most best in the industry!
  • 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.
  • Ports work fine, for two years of use there were no problems, recommended!
  • I have had this unit for 8 months now. It had green video lines on the HDMI output the day I got it.
  • This is a terrible receiver. I have never had the HDMI switch properly. You need to turn the machine on and off if you make a switch from one input to another.
