Denon AVR-2311ci 7.2 Channel A/V Receiver Preview
Denon's new AVR-2311ci 7.2 channel audio/video receiver continues to be a solid, feature-laden mid-level entry into the market, taking the place of the 2309 and 2310 that came before it.  Speaking from personal experience as a 2309 owner and having interviewed professional Blu-ray re-recording sound mixers who own the 2310, the 2300 series Denon products provide ample amplification for most small to medium-sized room, and get better every year.Careful readers may note that Denon's website says the 2311ci is a 7.1 receiver, but the picture provided on the same website clearly shows two RCA subwoofer outs.  Regardless, the equal power amp designs features 7 discrete power amp circuits, and each channel is rated at 105 watts (8 ohms, 20Hz to 20 kHz, .08% THD).The AVR-2311ci comes in Denon's standard black, and though there are plenty of buttons to fiddle with ...

Denon AVR-991 7.2 Channel A/V Receiver Preview
Denon's new AVR-991 is essentially a rebranded AVR-3311ci, which means you're still getting a broadband network ready, powerful, 7.2 channel audio/video receiver with 6 HDMI 1.4a inputs.  But there are some key differences here, including 6 rear HDMI 1.4a inputs (vs. 5 rear and 1 front),no second HDMI output, only two zones of multizone suppor, no HD Radio, no RS-232 or IR ins/outs, no pre-outs for an external amp, no front flap, and only a 2 year warranty (vs. 3).  If saving $100 is more important than any of those features, you're in capable hands.Like its more expensive sibling, Denon's AVR-991 features 7 discrete power amp circuits, with each channel is rated at 125 watts (8 ohms, 20Hz to 20 kHz, .05% THD), a 20-watt per channel gain over the 2311ci or 891, and a .03% reduction in Total Harmonic ...

Denon Reference AVR-5308CI 7.1 Channel A/V Reciever Preview
Denon's 7.1 channel, THX Ultra2 certified AVR-5308CI(A) is the flagship in the company lineup.  It has won awards from Bestcovery, Audioholics, Home Theater, and ExC!te.  It features 6 HDMI 1.3a inputs along with roughly one trillion analogue inputs (RCA and BNC), and WiFi connectivity, but at this price range is far from future proof so smart shoppers may want to hold off if he or she cares about 3D capability or modern height-channel surround formats.  Like it's newer, less expensive siblings, the 5308CI(A) comes in black, and the front inputs and most of the buttons are hidden behind a large front flap which leaves the overall appearance minimalistic and clean.The equal power amp designs features 7 discrete power amp circuits, and each channel is rated at 150 watts (8 ohms, 20Hz to 20 kHz, .05% THD), a 10-watt per channel ...
