    Excellent AV reciever with loads of features, July 4, 2008

    This review is from: Denon AVR-4308CI Multizone Home Theater Receiver with Network Streaming and Wi-Fi (Electronics)

    Denon 4308CI Receiver

    Strengths: Great quality picture and sound, excellent build quality, nice display, GUI interface, easy to assign/rename imputs, HD radio, 4 HDMI, 140 Watt multizone output, good value for price point.

    Weaknesses: Complicated user manual, Useless remote, Faroudja vs. Silicon Optix processor

    Price paid: $1,780 (2/08)from a reputable retail store. (Please do not ask which one as I was given an insider price)

    Summary: After considerable research I purchased the Denon 4308CI to upgrade a prexisting Sony STRDA555ES receiver. My main desire in upgrading was to obtain HDMI connection capability and take advantage updated sound processing and 1080P upscaling. I ruled out various other comparable recievers for a variety of reasons, including heat generation as my components are enclosed in a audio rack partially recessed into a closed media room.

    As a longtime Sony fan and owner of three ES AV recievers, it came down to a choice between the STRDA 5300ES and the Denon 4308CI.

    I opted for the Denon over the Sony for a few reasons. The display on the Denon is much larger. It might sound silly but I like to see the information displayed on the receiver from where I’m listing to music. The Sony display was rather small. I also liked the fact that the Denon has internet streaming capability and HD Radio reception. The Sony has more HDMI hookups and a longer warranty (5 years vs. 2 for the Denon) but the Denon has increased power handling and full 1080P upscaling. Pricewise the Denon was a few hundred dollars more then the Sony but I felt that it had a more “modern” feature set.

    So far after 4 months of use I have been very pleased with the Denon. Sound is fantastic and the GUI was intuitive. I disagree with some of the other reviews that I have read regarding the ease of setup. It took a little longer then I anticipated to set up but as I previously noted the GUI was fairly intuitive. I really like the fact that you can rename the inputs so when you select them from the function selection dial it will display whatever name you decide on. I prefer optical connections so I had to reassign some of the optical connections. Rear connections seem pretty sturdy. The unit gets warm but not hot after a few hours of use. Still havent taken advantage of the 1080P upscaling as of yet. HD radio signal reception is pretty strong and so far no interference despite living in a New York City Apartment building.

    Harmony 880 Universal Remote works better then supplied remotes.

    Video processing is excellent. I have however occasionally noted video artifacts. This reciver uses a Faroudja DCDi FLI2310 processor which is simply not as highly regarded by professional reviewers as the Silicon Optix Realta HQV processor used by Denon’s flagship 3800BDCI Blu-ray player or the Silicon Optix Reon chipset used by receivers such as the Onkyo TX-NR905 and Integra DTR 8.8. However, overall picture quality on standard 1080i and 720p cable source material is excellent.

    3808CI vs.4308CI? The 4308CI appeared to have a slightly more “attractive” build quality and appearance. In comparing the two models side by side before purchasing, the 4308CI simply looked better. However, HD radio, increased power handling and WiFi capability were the primary reasons I opted to spend more to purchase the 4308CI.

    4308CI and 3800BDCI blu-ray combo. Have had the 4308CI and the 3800BDCI paired for the last three weeks. The Blu-ray picture is simply amazing. Will never purchase another standard DVD again if available in Blu-ray format.

    Conclusion: I’ve been very happy with the 4308CI. It offers great sound and picture features at an attractive price point. However,if you are interested in better video processing you may want to check out the Onkyo TX-NR905 and Integra DTR 8.8 as well.

    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

    Denon AVR-4308 improves home theater picture and sound, December 10, 2007

    This review is from: Denon AVR-4308CI Multizone Home Theater Receiver with Network Streaming and Wi-Fi (Electronics)

    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 switching compared to my previous component switching in the Denon AVR-5800. The clarity and color improvements are easy to see. Also 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. Compared with the earlier Denon AVR-5800 the stereo sound quality in the pure direct mode from a SACD source is very much the same – very very good. But in the surround output settings, using the Audyssey automatic room compensation, the sound is much better (especially in clearer dialog) than my previous 7.1 setup. Although the new set-up menus are much better than the AVR-5800, there is a considerable learning curve to get everything set up right with all the many options provided. This is not a receiver for someone who wants to have a casual relationship with their system. Bottom line: very high quality and great flexibility with a somewhat challenging set-up; highly recommended!
