with 0.08% THD, driving 2 channels) that reproduces high-fidelity sound in
surround mode with equal quality and power for all channels, true to the
original sound. The power amplifier circuit adopts a discrete-circuit
configuration that achieves high-quality surround sound reproduction. To
faithfully reproduce the original surround sound, each of the Denon AVR-2312CI's
seven channels are equipped with its own high-current power amp of equal power.
Since these power amps also use discrete circuits configured with parts strictly
selected for their contribution to high sound quality, rather than with low-cost
integrated circuits (ICs), the surround sound playback is of impeccably high
Amplifier Assignment: The AVR-2312CI supports up to 7.2 channels (Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R, Surround
Back L/R, and Dual SW) for surround playback defined by the Blu-ray disc format.

height channels for better front effects.
- Zone2: The surround back channel amplifier can also be
assigned to power stereo speakers in Zone2. Receiver will be limited to
Dual Subwoofer Outputs: An additional subwoofer output
proves especially useful in large room settings where one subwoofer may not
provide adequate low-frequency output.
Dual 24-bit/192-kHz DACs: This receiver is equipped with
dual AKM Semiconductor 24-bit/192-kHz (AK4358VQ) DACs per channel to decode and playback
high-resolution recordings with less jitter and clearer sound.
32-Bit Processing DSP: The Denon AVR-2312CI is equipped with a
Floating-Point 32-bit DSP (ADSP21487) for powerful and highly accurate
surround sound reproduction.
High-Definition Audio Support: Fully compatible with current HD audio
formats, the Denon AVR-2312CI A/V Receiver provides powerful, theater-quality
surround sound. The Denon AVR-2312CI features support for Blu-ray high-resolution
audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio for a dynamic

Note: You can also setup your speaker system
manually using the receiver. You can select speaker configuration and size
(large/small/none), as well as subwoofer (yes/no). Set subwoofer and LFE
signal range playback (LFE/LFE+Main), as well as low-pass crossover
frequency (80/90/100/110/120/150/200/250Hz). Set distance (0-60') from listening
position to speakers. Set the volume (+/-12dB) of the test tone to be the
same when it is output from each speaker. And set the high-pass crossover
frequency (40/60/80/90/100/110/120/150/200/250Hz) for each speaker.
Dynamic EQ: Audio engineers mix music and movie soundtracks
at reference levels much louder than typical home listening levels. At lower
volumes the human ear perceives sound differently; voices change, bass
dissipates, and the surround effect becomes less enveloping. Dynamic EQ adjusts
the frequency response curve based on volume to maintain consistent bass output,
octave-to-octave balance, and surround impact, resulting in rich sound at any
volume. You can set the Dynamic EQ to 0, 5, 10, or 15 dB.
Audyssey Dynamic Volume: Audyssey Dynamic Volume solves the
problem of large variations in volume level between television programs,
commercials, and between the soft and loud passages of movies. Dynamic Volume
addresses the issue of commercials that are too loud and movie soundtracks with
vast differences between soft and loud passages; the results are more
intelligible dialogue, loud passages maintain impact, and soft whispers are
heard clearly. When the volume level changes, Dynamic EQ also adjusts the
frequency response to maintain sound quality. You can set the Dynamic Volume to
Day (low), Evening (middle), Midnight (high), or off.
CINEMA EQ (Cinema Equalizer): The Cinema EQ function gently
decreases the level of the extreme high frequencies, compensating for
overly-bright sounding motion picture soundtracks. Select this function if the
sound from the front speakers is too bright. This function only works in the
Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic (including PL II, PL IIx, PL IIz), and DTS
Restorer: Compressed audio formats such as MP3, WMA (Windows Media Audio), and MPEG-4 AAC
reduce the amount of data by eliminating signal components that are hard for the
human ear to hear. The Restorer function generates the signals eliminated upon
compression, restoring the sound to conditions near those of the original sound
before compression. It also corrects the sense of volume of the bass to obtain
richer sound with compressed audio signals. You can choose from 4 settings:
- Mode 1 (Restorer 64): Optimized mode for compressed sources with
very weak highs.
- Mode 2 (Restorer 96): Apply suitable bass & treble boost for all
- Mode 3 (Restored HQ): Optimized mode for compressed sources with
- Off: Does not use Restored function.
Dynamic Range Compression (DRC): Motion picture soundtracks
have tremendous dynamic range (the contrast between very soft and very loud
sounds). For listening late at night, or whenever the maximum sound level is
lower than usual, Compressing the dynamic range allows you to hear all of the
sounds in the soundtrack with reduced dynamic range. DRC works when playing
program sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS.
Tone Settings: You can independently adjust the system's
overall Bass and Treble settings from -6 to +6 dB. You can also fade the sound
from front to rear or vice-versa.
Bi-Amping Front Speakers: The Surround-Back speaker
terminals can be reassigned and used along with the Front terminals to bi-amp
the front speakers, providing improved bass and treble performance. When
bi-amping the front speakers the receiver is limited to a 5.2ch speaker system
in the main room.
Source Level: This function adjusts the playback level of
the currently selected input source's audio input. Use this feature if there are
differences in the input volume levels between different sources. You can correct
the playback level of the audio input from -12 to +12dB.
Volume Setting: You can set a
maximum volume level of 0, -10, or -20 dB to limit the receiver's total volume
output. You can also specify a turn-on volume, from -80 to +18dB or Last
(whatever the volume setting when the receiver was turned off).
Adjustment: You can set the amount of attenuation for the audio muting circuit; -40dB
or -20dB below current volume, or full mute (sound turned off entirely).
Assignable Digital Inputs: The AVR-2312CI features two
optical digital (Toslink) inputs and two coaxial digital inputs. Each input
can be assigned to any of the different input sources except
Speaker Terminals: The receiver has binding post terminals
for all speaker outputs (Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R, and Surround Back L/R). The binding posts can accept bare wire, pin connectors, and single

480i/480p (SD-quality), 720p, and 1080i video signals input as component,
composite, or S-video can be converted to HDMI and scaled as high as 1080p
resolution (output resolution set in the menu).
NSV (Noise Shaped Video): The NSV precision video feature
works in the digital domain to reduce noise in the video signal frequency band
in order to enhance video signal linearity, provide the most accurate signal
representation, and enhance the picture quality. Noise shaping techniques can be
combined with dynamic element matching techniques in order to reduce the
matching requirements of DAC elements by converting the analog mismatch into out
of band noise. This approach of dynamic element matching and noise shaping has
been shown to allow the use of sigma delta modulation at video data rates. NSV
is the only product on the market that can achieve ultimate precision with
12-bit fidelity in both digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital domains.
