This review is from: Denon AVR-4308CI Multizone Home Theater Receiver with Network Streaming and Wi-Fi (Electronics)Written by Dr.LAL,DALLAS, Tx.
The DENON 4308CI is one of the best receivers I've used so far in the past 20 years. Being an audio enthusiast and hobbyist myself, i am an extremely satisfied user of this great product. I believe this is the only receiver which has Satellite radio+HD radio+internet radio in one unit. THe Sound and Vision off this unit is also exceptional. 4 HDMI in and 2 out will handle most of the components. I have a Bluray+PS3 doing 1080P, Sat TV etc all hooked up using HDMIs and it's the perfect setup. Ample audio output (140W/Ch on all channels is also a + point).
Internet Radio is something which made me curious to explore..years back when we were all streaming using our PC's, the sound quality was the real turnoff. So i decided to play around with this unit with the same mind set. I was wrong! the quality of some of the foreign stations received here in the US (like from France, Russia and great Indian music from India and UK) was excellent. This would really help when shortwave radio reception is poor and with access to 100's of stations, you can listen to your taste! HD radio and XM is also great!
The only drawback was its remote which is cryptic and takes time getting used to. Overall an excellent receiver, sound and vision wise! Great Job Denon

Unlike the last 2 reviews i have read i find the set up extremely easy takes time getting familiar with but most settings just set to auto. as far as the remote goes read the manual carefully i have owned the avr 5600 and avr 4306 but i must say this one is by far the my favorite great dynamic range the only thing i did not like was the auto mic setup for the EQ just manualy set it up great receiver but a little expensive.

Did either of you notice an improvement in your video signal? Such as reduced jaggies?

Yes one can expect that with the better DSPs it uses. THere is also room to tweak the picture which i believe would help when you use inferior HDMI cables/sources etc.
