The 9.2 A/V surround receiver is network ready to connect to your PC and the Internet. It includes HD Radio, all the latest surround decoders, and is easy to setup. This receiver delivers 140 watts of power to each of the nine channels.

  • newegg 3D Blu-ray Compatibility with HDMI Featuring 7 HDMI inputs, the AVR-4311CI is also equipped with Denon's high resolution video processor, which accepts standard definition video sources and upconverts them to 1080p HDMI. The latest HDMI standard is supported, which provides 3D pass-through (Blu-ray and Broadcast), and also supports Audio Return Channel. The HDMI upconversion allows for a single HDMI cable run to the TV, avoiding the expense and hassle of multiple cable runs, and there are 2 HDMI outputs for even more configuration flexibility.
  • newegg Equipped With the Latest Surround Sound Decoders The AVR-4311CI features a full suite of the latest high resolution audio decoders, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. It also comes equipped with Audyssey's new DSX surround processor, which derives front height and front width channels for a dramatically expanded front soundstage. The Power Amp Assign function lets you specify the precise amplifier and speaker configuration that's right for your home theater setup, and there's also a special Pre-Amp only mode that completely disables the internal power amplifiers.
  • newegg Network Ready For Web Audio, Photo and Multi-Media PC Connectivity Via the RJ-45 wired LAN connection to your broadband home network, the AVR-4311CI opens up a whole world of content choices, including subscription music services Rhapsody and Napster, internet radio via Pandora, photo viewing via flickr, and access to photos and music tracks on your DLNA-compatible multi-media home PC. That LAN connection also allows for web control, and there's also an RS-232C serial port for custom integration with 3rd party whole home control systems.
  • newegg Easy Setup with Automatic Room Acoustic Correction Audyssey's advanced MultEQ XT32 room acoustic correction system features a microphone (included) to automatically measure the speaker configuration and provide acoustic tailoring for the best surround sound experience, and provides quick and easy setup. The new Sub EQ HT processor provides subwoofer tuning, and can even provide separate processing for each of two connected subwoofers.
  • newegg HD Radio In addition to conventional AM and FM tuning, the AVR-4311CI also features HD Radio. With HD Radio AM sounds like FM, and FM HD radio sounds like CD.
  • newegg Quality Discrete Power Amplifier Section The equal power amp design features 9 discrete power amp circuits, and each channel is rated at 140 watts (8 ohms, 20 Hz to 20 kHz, .08% THD). The amplifier section also features the ability to easily handle 4 ohm speakers.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This receiver has a web page that you can access from any computer on the network and control just about everything in it. It's capable of letting you play SACD's through it's HDMI port in native DSD without having the TV turned on. Has on-screen programming for the remote settings to control your other devices.

Cons: Two remotes? The multi-channel inputs should be color-coded, as should be the speaker terminals. The ground terminal and the phono inputs are spread too far apart.

Other Thoughts: It may be a year old model, but I don't see it missing anything. The onscreen menu is not crude, it's just no-frills and simple is best. BTW, for the savings from Newegg, I'll live without a warranty. After all, it will expire before I will ever consider parting with it.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat receiver but crummy shipment

Pros: Great receiver with vast set of features
Powerful amps
Pretty cool iPhone app control
Free Airplay upgrade
Lots of nice Internet and USB sources

Cons: Newegg shipment method was an absolute disgrace. The receiver was not shipped in an outer box, only the product box itself. UPS left it on a stair case outdoors in the puring rain with no plastic, no covering, and did not bother to even ring the doorbell even though I had a note on the door and was home waiting. The box was an absolute mushy cardboard mess and the receiver has a small dent in one side. This is NOT THE WAY TO SHIP SUCH AN EXPENSIVE AND HEAVY PRODUCT.

Other Thoughts: I have owned tons of audio gear dating back nearly 50 years including some extremely high end stuff. This is a very nice all-in-one box which does just about everything very well. The user interface is not particularly well organized, the menu overlays are hard to read in many cases (tiny letters, very little contrast) and the remotes were designed with tiny, unlit, disorganized buttons.

All condered, still a very nice AV receiver, particularly if you can find it from Newegg at their significant discount sale price.

5 out of 5 eggs4311

Pros: Ability to customize up to 9.2 native channels (11.2 if running a pre-out)
Audyssey MultEQ XT32 gives room correction capability with an included mic and fairly intuitive setup feature (more on this later).
More audio pre-set modes than I know what to do with.
Very strong connectivity with DNLP and networked connections.
Frequent updates from Denon (firmware and other features like AirPlay).
Price. Please don't pay retail for this device. Catch it on a weekend special and make sure to check Denon's website for authorized dealers/warranty info. I'm not going to go 'there' but you can read and decide on your own.

Cons: May be overkill to the general enthusiast. By this I mean that unless you are specifically wanting to run 9 channels or more, 7+2 or 5+2+2 you are probably barking up the wrong tree.

It also exposes weaknesses in speakers and/or requires higher than average setup knowledge. Once Audyssey XT has been run, it is quite hard to get the receiver to run audio modes w/o Audyssey on all the different inputs.

XT seems too focused on highs and lows and leaves a massive gaping whole in the mid / mid to low range (this could be a whole in the speaker's response as well but music sounded fine before and sounds fine w/o it).

Some people swear by Audyssey up and down but I am still on the fence. For movies, no question but for music, be careful.

Other Thoughts: Previous reviewer hit it right on the head. The 4311 is simply one of the best AVRs on the market. I am currently running 9.1 (FH and rears. not wides) and am loving it!!!

My usage is 50/40/10 TV+movies/music/gaming.
Most of my first few weeks with this receiver was spent trying to find the right blend of speaker location, Audyssey calibration and listening settings. I ran Aud XT setup and got what I thought was a good initial setup.

I popped in Dark Knight BD and sat back in joyful bliss. But then I switched over to music via my Zune (all ripped at 320kbps) and here is where the greatness of software correction falls flat. I spent the next several days trying to find a happy playback median to no avail. I ended up ditching the Aud XT settings and am running with tone/db settings by ear w/restorer3/HQ on.

Favorite setting that serves both movies and audio well is Widescreen.

Other than that this AVR is a beast and will keep my ears tingling for many years to come (hopefu

5 out of 5 eggsAn Amazingly Good AVR

Pros: Supports 9.2 out of the box with excellent total wattage output from 9 amps. Has a great on-screen UI. Has almost every Dolby + DTS mode. Can do Audyssey DSX full surround sound from any audio input. Can output Fronts, Center, Surrounds, Rear Surrounds, Front Wides, Front Highs. Has support for Network Streaming including Pandora and Napster. Can stream from your media service / PC via DLNA. Does pretty much everything you could ask for and then even more.

Cons: The only mode it doesnt currently do is the new DTX: Neo X surround processing. So far it's not been a problem. Some early reports last year about firmware issues -- I can find ZERO such problems. I discovered that although this AVR is touted to drive 4 Ohm loads, they dont provide any power or THD(total harmonic distortion) ratings below 8 & 6 Ohms. (See below about 4 ohm speaker correctly).

If you can get this amp for <$1600, it's a great deal.

Other Thoughts: Can do 11.2 channels -- but you need at least two channels of additional external amplification. This is a great AVR that can transistion to a pure preprocessor (no amplification enabled) if you decide to add external power amps -- like Emotiva XPA-2 + XPA-5 amps. The reason you might want to do this is if you try to drive a full set of low-impedence (4 ohm) and/or low sensitivity speakers.


None the less, this is a great amp and I would recommend it over the "Onkyo | TX-NR5009" or "Yamaha RX-A3010 AVENTAGE" competing offerings.

1 out of 5 eggsWrong receiver sent

Pros: Great receiver for home theater.

Cons: Newegg sent me a Denon AVR-1712 instead of Denon AVR-4311CI that I paid for. Did not find out until I got home from work. Customer service already closed. Hope they can resolve this soon. I am very disappointed with Newegg service and lack of QA at their shipping department.

Other Thoughts: I just spent several thousands with Newegg on their Klipsch speaker system and this receiver and hope I can get them set up and ready for the weekend party. I guess that won't happen now. What a shame with Newegg. If I knew this would've happened, I'd rather buy them at the local store instead.

One egg rating is for poor service from Newegg and not the receiver.
