Fortunatly, it's a very high-quality device, made in Japan. Denon's lower end models are made in China. There is a difference.
Besides the big Audyessy features, there are some other nice things about this beast. The amplifier section is very high quality. A recent bench test found it puts out over 170w per channel in stereo and 120w with 5 channels driven. In comparison, the Onkyo 5008, a bigger, heavier reciever and probably the 4311's most direct competitor only put out 80w per channel with 5 channels driven in the same test. So if you need some power, this thing probably has enough. If it doesn't, though, it has preouts for all 13 channels AND Zones 2 & 3. That's 17 preamp outputs people! 17! Buy now! Don't wait!
Another nice thing is the Web interface and the on-screen GUI. These features let you hide this away in a closet or basement, and still be able to turn it on and off and control everything. Wonderful for home theater folks.
The other two features that really impressed me were the DynamicEQ, which lets you hear your surrounds, even at low volumes, and internet radio, which has stunning divirsity and quality.
Anyway, great reciever. Rock solid. Worth the money spent.
1) setup was fairly straight forward (if you're comfortable around electronics) because I'm not a GEEK or Audiophile . . . but I can read the manual & use Youtube; so, set up was pretty straight forward.
2) The audyssey multeq xt32 was also pretty straight forward to set up . . . although I don't yet have a subwoofer and so, I'll clearly have to re-calibrate it once I've added one to the mix . . but even so, it did a nice job & I'm pleased w/ the results.
3) Internet connectivity & functionality is pretty excellent . . .
4) AirPlay setup . . . was not as simple as it should have been. The product had to be registered before I could download the updated firmware . . . but the URL that they give you (on the warranty paperwork) is wrong/non-functional. So, I had to contact a human at Denon and this fella was VERY helpful. He (1) registered my product and then (2) assisted me in the firmware push. . . groooooovy dude.
1) It is absolutely beyond me how this product can be shipped and not be double boxed . . .if that makes sense. It was UPS'd in the original packaging box . . . and that box was pretty beat-up by the time it arrived . . and needless to say, with the price of this item and it's incredibly complicated electronic composition . . . I have concerns that there may be something damaged (internally) and I may not learn of it until much later . . . I don't know what the fix is for this . . .Read more ›
Well, to make a long story short, Audyssey worked, much to my happy surprise, and much better than I had hoped. So, for me, the issue was not how many watts, 3-D capability, Direct Play for Ipod, etc., but how much control this receiver offered the user in tailoring the room's acoustics.
It sounds great, and, for me, that is all that matters.
The is a wonderful sounding system and is certainly over kill for almost everyone, and if not, your probably hooking up external amps to it and making it over kill. It has more wattage then what I can use, on the volume scale -80 to +18, I'm running -50 to about -30 most of the time. The system is probably meant for much larger rooms then what I have it installed in, 16x20, but even in this room size it sounds fantastic, partly do to the Audyessy System I would think.
I currently have it set up for 9.1, I had most of the speakers on hand from the Kenwood 5.1 system, and oddly enough the speakers sound better then they ever did on the old Kenwood. The old speakers don't sound nearly so muffled, I have more highs and lows, then what the Kenwood was giving it, I place the differences squarely on the Kenwood Decoders and not the amp portion itself, the modern decoders make a huge difference.
The system does not work out of the box, but you don't need to be a professional at all to set the system up. You must however run the auto setup, you need to have it plugged into the TV and then plugging in the supplied Mic to get the system to work. Don't worry about getting it right, I myself had to move a few speakers around, Just unplug the Mic and plug it back in to restart the auto setup. The speaker wiring Diagrams are a little confusing at 1st, 5.1 was pretty straight forward but why anyone would buy a system like this for 5.1 should just buy any number of systems that are 5.Read more ›

I've been using this for about 3 months now in an 11.2 system. I use a NAD 5 channel amp for the LCR and surrounds simply because you need an external amp for the last 2 or in 11. Read morePublished on August 31, 2012 by KidHorn
