Home theater with real impact

Surround sound isn't just something you hear, but something you feel. From those rumbling effects that seem to begin down deep, to the subtle sonic details that seem to come from all sides, a surround sound receiver needs a bedrock of good, clean power to really move you. Denon's AVR-3313CI boasts enough amplification to fill even a large room with precise-yet-punchy sound. . Cutting-edge surround processing lets you experience the best sound your favorite Blu-ray movies have to offer, and dual subwoofer outputs let you add a second sub for bass that's well-balanced throughout your home theater.

Two or more rooms with a view

For videophiles whose setup might include a couple of flat-panel TVs and a projector, the '3313CI boasts three HDMI outputs supporting two separate video zones. So you can watch one HD source in one room and a different source in another. This receiver has seven HDMI inputs for all your hi-def video gear, including a convenient front-panel connection for a video camera or game console. So if the kids are pining for the movie but the guests want to watch the footage you captured on that trip to Machu Picchu, everyone can be satisfied.

iPod AirPlay

AirPlay lets you stream your iTunes® library wirelessly to your Denon receiver.

Apple AirPlay® — built-in convenience

AirPlay lets you stream music from your iTunes® library directly to the receiver, either from a networked computer or right from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®. Not only do you get a fast and convenient way to listen to your favorites, but anyone in your home can stream from their player to share their latest find. Or if you prefer, simply plug in your favorite Apple handheld device through the front-panel USB port for a direct digital connection.

And thanks to a free Denon control app, your Apple® or Android™ device can double as a Wi-Fi® system remote. The app is intuitive and easy to read, and it offers control of your system from any spot in or around the house where you can access your wireless network. AirPlay and app control require a wireless home network and a wired connection between the receiver and network.

iPod AirPlay

Use your smartphone or tablet as a convenient wireless remote.



A wealth of music at your fingertips

Connect the AVR-3313CI to your broadband home network and you open the door to a world of entertainment selections. Begin with thousands of Internet radio stations and you'll find favorites, old and new. And if you'd like even more, explore Pandora® Internet radio or SiriusXM Internet radio where millions of songs and tons of entertainment selections are at your command (registration or subscription may be required). You can even access favorite photos stored on your networked PC through the '3313CI, or view picture albums on Flickr using your HDTV. And if you're a fan of the local airwaves the AVR-3313CI comes equipped with a built-in HD Radio® tuner.

Speaker calibration is just a click away

For the most accurate home theater sound possible in your room, Denon equipped this receiver with Audyssey MultEQ® XT, a sophisticated automatic speaker calibration system. The '3313 uses the included microphone to analyze sound then automatically adjusts individual level, equalization, and delay settings for each of your speakers.

    Denon AVR-3313

    Written By Tom G, Kenosha,WI on Sunday, August 10, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I used this to replace an aging Onkyo home theater. The install, and set up were a breeze. Very easy with the on screen menu. I am using it as a 7.1, but can expand it to 9.1 for Main Zone. I purchased a Niles amp to power my Zone 2. This way I did not loose the 7.1 in Main Zone, if both are in use. I power and sound for movie viewing is fantastic. The Air play is great too, no other wire/connections needed for my I Tunes and the free app from my apple phone no real need to use the remote. You won't be disappointed with Denon!

    Pros: Light weight compared to unit it replaced and plenty of power for watching movies. Quick, easy install and set up.

    Cons: None

    Bought the receiver to replace an old Kenwood. The setup was easy and the number of HDMI inputs is excellent. Using older Bose speakers and the receiver made them come alive.

    Pros: Easy set up. Using the microphone to it just speakers worked perfect.

    Cons: Creates a lot of heat cannot be put in the small space.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    After spending a long time reading specs from more than a dozen receivers, I finally pulled the trigger on the Denon when the price dropped. Wow, what a deal. At this point, I have only had the unit for a couple of weeks, but it is doing everything I had hoped. I am pushing a pair of Def Tech studio monitor 450s in the bedroom on zone 2, and the main zone is running a pair of B&W 685s, an HTM61 center and an Infinity PS-212 sub. My main motivation for buying this unit was its ability to multi-zone with different inputs. Thus far, it is doing that wonderfully. I can be watching a movie at the same time my wife is cranking Pandora and the Denon doesn't miss a beat. We will see what the longevity of the unit is running it this way, but I am excited at this point.

    Pros: Quite user friendly, easy set up, multi zone with different inputs at the same time, home network connectivity,

    Cons: remote was designed for a 5th grader (no bells or whistles), droid app is just "OK", generates a lot of heat.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Excellent AV Receiver for the price. Unfortunately, no longer available at Crutchfield. Wish the unit came with a hard copy of Owner's Manual because there's lots of information in the CD version that accompanies it and its difficult to keep flipping back and forth among the pages to learn the various tasks. Speaker set up and balancing greatly aided by the automation built into the unit. It literally walks you through each step of the initial set up. Liked this one so much, I bought a second one for use with system in basement family room.

    Pros: Guided initial setup Ample HDMI connections and other connections

    Cons: No hard copy owners manual No switched electric outlet(s)

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    A wonderful machine! I needed to replace an aging Bose LifeStyle system and,after many nights pouring over the specs of many of the AVRs out there, I had my choices narrowed down to 2 Denons (the X3000 and the 3313CI) and a Yamaha (RX-A1020). Sound is subjective.... we all hear things a little differently, and to me, when I pitted the Denon against the Yamaha using the same ML15s, the Denon easily won The 3313CI pushing out 125 watts ...and at this price, I couldn't let it go....!

    Pros: Crisp, clean sound Excellent video processing Excellent value

    Cons: lack of a secondary USB port (5W dc) on the back panel.. would have been perfect to power the cabinet fans

    The Jury Is Still Out

    Written By StevenB, Southeastern PA on Sunday, October 20, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've had the receiver hooked up for just a week now and I'm still trying to figure it all out. Either I need to spend more time with the owner's manual or my connections are not right because I can't seem to get all the features and components to work. This unit replaced a 12 year old Denon that still works and was easy to use, but when I upgraded to a new Smart 3D TV and Blu ray player, I decided to splurge on a new receiver as well. Connecting everything was not a problem, but figuring out how to get sound from my CD/DVD player to a second set of speakers (for example) is still a mystery. I'll keep working on it, I just didn't expect such a steep learning curve.

    Pros: Looks good as many of the controls, USB, earphone jack, etc. are under a drop-down cover. Has inputs for more than you have to connect, most likely.

    Cons: Controls are not logical or intuitive; hard to learn and it weighs a ton.

    Pros: Great sound. Very simple to set up. I had a 10 year old Denon and it was much harder to set up. All you need to do is run a hdmi cable to your tv and any other components and attach your speakers. It will adjust the sound in setup mode.

    Cons: None yet.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Not really being a tech guy so I was very skeptical that I could to try and swap receivers when mine died. Since none of the local tech guys wouldn't respond I took a chance figuring Crutchfield support would bail me out. As it turns out, it was a breeze. Setup of my 7.1 surround was done by the receiver itself. Toughest part was making sure I transferred correctly.

    Pros: Easy Setup

    Cons: None so far

    Great AVR

    Written By Jim, Charlottesville VA on Tuesday, October 01, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Through the years I have used Sony and Onkyo to run my 7.2 home theatre and everything always sounded okay but I was never overly impressed. It was good and I liked it but it was never great. After reading a lot of positive reviews on AVR sound quality from companies like Denon and Marantz I decided to make a change. I was on the fence between the Denon 3313CI and the Marantz SR6007 but since the Denon gave me 125 wpc and the Marantz only had 110wpc I decided to go with the Denon. I have Polk RTI-a7 speakers for my front channels and they need lots of power, the more the better so the extra 15 watts that the 3313CI provided was important to me. I replaced my Onkyo with the Denon 3313CI. When I got the new Denon I ran Audyssey and WOW, the sound of my home theatre was immediately transformed for the better. It went from okay to fantastic! I am very happy with this purchase.

    Pros: Grat sound, great features, easy to set up and use. Transforms your home theatre.

    Cons: The remote leaves a lot to be desired.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This receiver is much easier to use than our previous Denon AVR 1910. It provides more power and clearer sound. The setup and remote are also much more user friendly - All of the setup is done on your tv screen and it is easy to identify sound problems during the setup process. Anyone who had the 2 sided Denon remote knows how awful it was; this is much better with a single on/off button instead of 2 buttons (allows for much easier universal remote programming). The only thing to note...If you want to run AppleTV (or any other digital audio output) in Zone 2, you will have to purchase a converter. It's not difficult, just a pain if you aren't expecting it.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Used with B&W 604-S2 Front speakers, Polk CSI-6A Center, and REL Q150E Sub. Listen to Music in 2.1 Stereo mode and TV/Movies with 3.1 Cinema mode, both with Audyssey active. Sound only decent with Audyssey active. Sound disappointing in Stereo Direct Mode. Dialog clear for movies, but voices can be a bit hollow sounding, as noted by another reviewer. Runs hot regardless of volume setting, limiting placement. Easy to get caught in firmware update loop, if Ethernet cable not "directly connected" to cable modem. Very confusing manual. Remote and front panel lack too many features. Denon Ipod/Iphone App clumsy too. FM/HD tuner is very good, main reason I bought this model. Audyssey setup very easy and good. Audyssey "saves" the system from being "poor" sounding. Like the sound of my old Denon AVR-2802 as much or better and it ran cooler. Mid to lower bass is weak in Stereo Pure/Direct mode. Not a good value for the money. Should have tried a Marantz as others noted. I do not send video thru the unit so I can't comment on video processing.

    Pros: Good HD/FM/AM Tuner. Audyssey setup was easy and its sound settings made for clear dialog. Nice spatial sound even in Stereo with Audyssey active. Good mid and upper frequency range without being harsh sounding. Audyssey enriches mid to lower bass frequencies too. So Audyssey processing was quite impressive

    Cons: Runs much too hot at all volume levels, limiting placement. Sound is only decent with Audyssey active, though voices can be a bit hollow sounding in Cinema Modes.Easy to get caught in firmware update loop, if Ethernet cable not "directly connected" to cable modem. Very confusing manual. Remote and front panel lack too many features. Denon Ipod/Iphone App clumsy too. Internet radio tuning/selection awkward and seems to drop stations. I use iPod for internet radio and connect via USB.

    I bought this receiver to power three pairs of in ceiling speakers, 1 pair of outdoor speakers and my home theater; granted I also purchase a speaker selector. To my surprise the 125w per channel with two channels running to my selector switch where 4 pairs of speakers are powered, moves the speakers. This receiver seems to be a great buy for the price point.

    Pros: Multi zone, variable volume level with zone two and three pre outs, sharp looking, plenty of power, easy to integrate into home network, provides you with almost every possible option an intermidiate user would want.

    Cons: None at this time

    Written By Cranky_Frankie, Guilderland, NY on Thursday, August 15, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Here is my review of the Denon AV3313CI home theater receiver that I purchased from Crutchfield. First a little background: this is the first home theater receiver I've ever purchased, and is easily the most expensive and complicated piece of audio gear I've ever had. Though I've always considered myself an audiophile I'd never bothered to setup a good system because my wife and kids don't like me playing anything really loud or for long periods. But my daughter's boyfriend works for Bose and got me a really good deal on the Acoustimas 10 5.1 speaker system, so I had to buy something that would do justice to that.

    I'd done a lot of research and wanted very badly to buy a Yamaha home theater receiver because I like Yamaha products and their receivers have HD radio which I really wanted. When I started shopping I naturally looked at Crutchfield because I've been buying from them since the '70s. They are a great company and I love to buy from them whenever I can because they have fair prices and great customer service. In searching for home theater receivers with HD radio at Crutchfield the Denon AV3313CI was $400 less than the equivalent Yamaha, plus I was able get an "open box" one for $80 less. So figuring all of that in I wound up with the Denon.

    They tell me at Crutchfield that the AV3313CI is last year's model which is why it was being sold at a discount. Still, this model has so many great features I'm just blown away by it.

    Pros: - plenty of power at 150W/channel. - HD radio support. There are only three HD stations in my area of upstate NY but one of them is the oldies channel, which means I get oldies all day and all night with no commercials every day, which is great, plus they play tracks you never hear on the main station. I think HD radio is terrific and I don't know why there isn't more of it. - It connects to the Internet via Ethernet cable. Some folks may think that wireless Internet access should be inclu

    Cons: - the speaker connection terminals are very close together, making it hard to attach the wires. - It's Internet connected and lists Spotify as one of it's sources, but when I try to connect using my Spotify ID it tells me you need a premium Spotify account to connect. I've been using the free Spotify for a long time and love it. I don't see why you should be forced to get the premium account just to listen on the receiver. Spotify premium is only about $9/month, but as I don't have a smart ph

    Written By Chrismo, La Costa, CA on Sunday, August 11, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Yes, I probably want it all. Lots of reviews here that I agree with. I did get a buggy unit (picture cutting out and very loose power cord) that I ended up bricking after a failed firmware update. Exchanged easily with Crutchfield and was ready for round 2.

    Sound: so much fuller than my 10-year old Yamaha 5.1. My wife thought that I had replaced the speakers inside and outside to make it sound so good. Has plenty of power for my family room/great room and my outside Zone 2 speakers, but other reviewers are correct in the fact that you have to crank the volume to get enough sound and then room filling sound. I like the non echoey room sound modes like Dolby and DTS, but I miss having music modes that preserve the stereo by using all of the speakers except the center. I can always use the stereo modes if I'm irked by it. The sound restorer gives the music a nice full sound compared to direct mode.

    Features: good as expected, with pros and cons. All HDMI sources and the component Wii go through perfectly with no cutting and fast enough switching. The AirPlay from iPad and iPhone have a nice interface for music on the devices or our upstairs Windows 7 machine running iTunes. However, I REALLY wish I had the option to play AppleTV outside by itself or with the main zone, but it only has HDMI and I haven't bought a DAC to make that work: Denon should have that built in. When controlling the iPod Classic with remote, there was quite a lag in the response.

    Pros: Huge sound upgrade over 10-year old Yamaha, excellent picture and switching with HDMI, AirPlay works well, Pandora working now, Zone 2 control, free decent Apple Remote app for graphically choosing music on iPad or iPhone, updated Denon remote app does more and had good zone controls, easy set-up, two sub outs, simple remote, looks good and chassis fairly shallow for cabinet, can IPad in by Wi-Fi for full control, sound restorer for compressed music works well

    Cons: Had to return buggy first unit (but Crutchfield service is a pro), iPod Classic control very sluggish, No digital sources other than main zone even when Zone 2 is mirroring the main zone, no music modes that omit center speaker, loose power cord, USB only in front but don't want to clutter front with permanent iPod connection, may not have enough power to really fill a large room

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've been a Denon fan for a LONG time. From my first cassette deck, to my first CD player, there has always been at least one Denon device in my home. So, when shopping for a new AV receiver for my Home Theater I didn't have to look very far. The latest crop of Denon In Command receivers really are awesome!

    I was looking for a model with all the bells and whistles including SiriusXM Satellite Radio and 4K video, so I settled on the AVR-3313ci. Surprisingly it's the ONLY higher end model that has HD Radio! Installation was fast and straight forward. The menus are easy to figure out and configure.

    The unit is powering my new Klipsch Reference Series speakers and let me to you, it sounds AMAZING! The only reason I gave my review 4 stars instead of 5 is because the weakest part of the receiver is it's GUI (Graphic User Interface). Overall it is simple and unimpressive. It looks like something out of the 1990's. Just awful. My Roku box blows it away with it's beautifully designed interface, graphics, and simplicity. If Denon can redesign that, the unit truly will be the best on the market. But don't let that stop you from buying it, because once you get it all set up and programmed properly you really don't even notice it.

    Overall, I'm sure there are fancier models out there, but this one is definitely worth every penny I paid and I'm sure it will be part of my home theater for years to come......

    Pros: 4K Video, Sirius XM, HD radio, iPhone control App

    Cons: Terrible GUI (Graphic User Interface)

    Cons: Zone 2 uses surround back, but not a big deal in my opinion

    Denon receiver fits the bill

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This receiver has three zones for separate programs. So far I have connected two of them and they work as advertised. Surround sound with my smart tv is especially good. Telephone support was excellent

    Pros: Self balancing surround sound

    Cons: Complex. You have to think as you enable various components.

    Just what I needed

    Great receiver. The only issue that I have is with the AirPlay. I'm having to bridge my wireless connection to give the receiver a wired connection which sometimes causes issues. I know it's a bandwidth issue, but kinda sucks. I wish it were wireless. Aside from that, it works great and I am happy with my purchase.

    Pros: Lots of connections (inputs) and 3 zone outputs.

    Cons: Can't put all zones on for all speakers at once and isn't wireless. No dealbreakers though.

    the little things are so nice

    Written By PhatPat, Austin, TX on Tuesday, July 30, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Beyond just the well-marketed features (power, inputs, etc.), I really like the little things about this receiver. The fact that the Denon GUI overlays on top of whatever you are watching so you can actually see what volume you are at from across the room makes me very happy (my old Denon didn't do that). If you turn on AirPlay, the unit powers up if off. That makes it super-easy for my wife to play her tunes whenever she wants. A couple cons (which us why I gave it a 4): It is 3 zones, but if you want to use your extra channels to power another zone, it only works with an analog source. Who listens to analog sources any more? The nice thing is that if you use the Media Server option it will play through those other zones; you just have to set up your computer to do it. I have Zone 3 running to a in-wall speaker in my bathroom, and I can run it from my phone which is nice, when the Denon App works. I will also note that the Denon App is a little unstable, but still usable. I have Zone 2 set up to run a computer monitor, so I have Zone 2 always on, and even with only Zone 2 on, the unit is pretty hot. That has me a little concerned about long-term reliability, but I guess we will see...

    Pros: all the usual stuff (power, inputs, multi-zone); GUI overlay; Airplay automatically turns on the unit

    Cons: using built-in amp for multi-zone only works with analog sources; app is a bit unstable; gets pretty hot even when no speakers are being powered

    Good value with Dual HDMI Out

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Really good product. I upgraded from the Denon AVR-3805 since I was using a separate HDMI splitter/amplifer. Trying to cut cords in my entertainment center I opted for the the AVR-3313Cl. So far it has been great. Setup and the interface were easy to use. The dual video output makes for a seamless transition between projector and tv that is usually found on much more expense AV/Receivers. For the price point and feature set I believe this unit is a good value.

    Bought my first new receiver in almost 20 years for AV system in new retirement home. How technology has improved!!! I am very impressed with the capability. Can power a total of 9 speakers abd sub woofer at the same time including my 40 year old Pioneer CS A700 from my college days. I am overwhelmed with all this receiver can do.

    Pros: Great looks to start with, but behind the looks is SOOO much capability. Too many pros to list. Would highly recommend this receiver.

    Consistently Quirky and Underwhelming

    Written By BillU, Charlotte, NC on Tuesday, July 23, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    In short, its' most consistent feature is its continued inconsistency.

    I bought this as a centerpiece to my Klipsch Left/Right, Polk Center, and Polk subwoofer. Besides being insanely non-intuitive to setup, with way too many options and menus, in the end, this unit is an expensive Duck. Like a duck that can do many things, such as swim, fly, walk, but yet do none of them well, this Denon unit is at best that and usually worse. So far, it:
    1) does not do Airplay correctly for all of my iOS devices; with some seeing it and some not or in part;
    2) does not consistently turn off or on the LSF subwoofer - so I wind up doing it manually most times;
    3) does not consistently enable sound when on media or cable sat, etc...i wind up turning unit on and off to get it to recognize such fact;
    4) cannot even keep a simple local FM radio station in-tune...even using a powered FM antennae externally, which has served well for years my $50 cheapie receiver this one is replacing;
    5) in no way shape or form works as a single remote for my TV, Cable/Sat etc; even frustrating Crutchfield tech support;
    6) Never acts consistently the same twice in a row - it's always new to find out what button-pushing sequence will make it wake up this time;
    7) requires a full-on turn it up to 55+ on a scale of 0-80, before it even MAKES a sound...hence, it's underpowered even though it is a wattage monster
    8) requires vampire-electric sucking on-standby to even do minimal remote functions.

    A complete $ hole

    Pros: - Honestly, none

    Cons: - Inconsistent behavior - large, bulky, weighty - apparently underpowered and/or inefficient - does nothing well - AirPlay will not work - Single remote control will not work - Terrible as a basic FM radio - Terrible non-intuitive menus and settings - Terrible documentation and as PDF, even worse - Too many fancy settings and cannot even do basic things first - Way too expensive for its alleged quality

    I used to love Onkyo until I had all kinds of problems with the video flickers via HDMI. I upgraded to the Denon series and the video and audio are crisp and clear. The modes create the right experience. Tuning the Speakers to your setup is easy. Onscreen Menus make it very nice. Again the power of this particular unit is incredible.

    Pros: Power / Crisp Picture via HDMI / Great Support if you need it from Denon.

    Cons: Make a WIFI network option built in at this price.

Love the fact that pandora is built it and can stream music from my iPhone. The remote control app for phones and iPads will work all 3 zones. Awesome improvement! Love sitting in the backyard changing songs and volume on my phone while my son plays Xbox inside.

    Pros: Still has a phono input! Pandora built in 3 zone volume controls on your phone

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Upgraded from an ancient Denon Receiver. I've been eyeballing this AVR for quite a while and the release of the new AVRs and price drop for this made it a go. I needed a receiver with at least three zones and this one fits the ticket perfectly. Setup took a bit but was largely painless with the on-screen/monitor step-by-steps. The sound is terrific and it is great to be able to finally port almost everything through HDMI (was running composite, optical, digital, and RCA on old system). The sound and video quality is fantastic in my space. I am using this to drive 5.1 surround and a second zone a the moment. Great buy.

    Pros: Great sound and video. 3 zones available. Denon Control App and airplay really brings this AVR to life in our home. Setup was easy enough for what you gain as a result...very good on-screen step-by-step.

    Cons: Frankly, None that I have found yet.

    I was replacing an earlier Denon AVR1082 which back in the day was a pretty stout reciever but did not have HDMI back then. so it was time to update the audio side of my audio/video theater system. the set up was fairly easy for me but when it came time to try the apple AIR PLAY it was new territory for me and i still havn't figured out the Denon Remote App yet. but thats not a big deal to me at this point. The system sounds great, more power than i expected to it to have. It made my Klipsch Reference series speakers come to life. the HI's are brighter than ever before. The osd was something to get used to and some of the settings for sub were a little confusing at first. if all else fails... read the manual... Right!!! once i read about some of the settings and was able to dial in the sub and now it plays on all modes.(at first it only workd on surround modes not stereo) all in all i love this new reciever and would recommend to anybody looking for a great upgrade.

    Pros: LOOKS, STRONG POWER AMP, CLEAR SOUND, BRIGHT HIGHS, MULTI ROOM, APPLE AIR PLAY

    I consider myself to be a home theater enthusiast and have had high-end receivers from Yamaha and Nad in the past. I had my eye on the Marantz SR7007 for quite some time and compared it to the Denon AVR-3313CI. Both units have nearly identical specs and features but at $1,000 cheaper, I decided to give the Denon AVR-3313Ci a chance. And boy am I glad that I did! So far it has behaved flawlessly. It has been on almost non-stop since I hooked it up. I am rediscovering my music collection and taking full advantage of AirPlay streaming, built-in Pandora, Spotify and Internet Radio. Setup was a breeze. I will soon be adding multi-zone audio and video. This thing is packed with features and at 125 watts per channel, it has plenty of horsepower to fill the room with amazing sound. Every so often I make a smart purchase that I want to tell the world about and this receiver definitely fits into that category.

    Pros: Feature rich. AirPlay, Pandora, Spotify, Internet Radio. Great separation of multi-channel audio. 3 audio/video zones. 125 Watts per channel. Great value!

    Cons: None yet. Still amazed at how much product I received for the money.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have had it several weeks and so far it rocks! I bought it as a replacement to and older Harmon Kardon. This receiver has brought out more of my system than I thought possible. I heard sound in Pirates of the Caribbean that I haven't heard since seeing it in the theater. The Oddesy works great for movies but we found it better to manually adjust for music. The app works great too. My main complaint is that iTunes runs off the Apple Remote app and not off the Denon app, but it could be that I haven't figured that part out yet. When you switch inputs to Network, the receiver's control capabilities seem to end. There are so many ways to adjust this it will take me several more weeks of playing with it to get it dialed in.

    Pros: Sound is awesome. Turntable input is great. Pandora and HD radio work great. LOVE being able to listen to my iTunes catalogue and control it from my phone.

    Cons: Wish it had a back-lit remote. Huge manual is a pdf, not printed and having a computer in one room and the receiver in another makes it hard to adjust quickly.

    This is an outstanding, feature packed AVR. I received it two days after I received it from Crutchfield and had it up and running in less than an hour. This is the 4th Denon AVR I've owned and unless something changes my mind in the future, it is the best value considering the price from Crutchfield.

    Pros: The great sound and picture I've always experienced from Denon. Ease of setup. The network system and Tuner.Plenty of power to drive my 7.2 speaker system in a 3800 cubic ft. room. You just can't find a better product for the price.

    Cons: maybe the remote. Also the build quality compared to the Japanese built Denons. Time will tell on that.

    Was waiting for this receiver to go on close out - needed to upgrade my 3310 for 3D support. The new X-4000 has some important features that would be nice. X-4000 vs 3313 full retail is a no brainer - X4000 all the way for the X32 Audyssey, true dual sub support, and more pre-outs. At the current pricing, the 3313 had everything I really need for nearly half the price.

    Pros: Solid upgrade from my older 3310 receiver. Missing minor features but the added features more than offset these.

    Cons: No X32 or true dual sub support in Audyssey. Doesn't have pre-outs for all channels, only the main 5.

    Only had this receiver 3 weeks. This replaced a 75 w/ch Denon AVR-1609 which sounded great. Just wanted more power. This receiver delivers lots of clean power. I play music using itunes from my desktop. I used to use a 50 ft toslink optical cable to link the computer to the AVR. Now I can send the audio via airplay over my home network. Now, I can control the song selection from AVR remote. I'm a huge fan of Crutchfield's return policy. I tryed a Marantz 6007 receiver before this Denon and was not impressed. I returned it, it was easy, no fuss, only cost me shipping.

    Pros: Lots of clean power. Better defined center image. Airplay simplifies playing music. Audyssey can show me the frequecy response of the loudspeaker + listening room system. Crutchfield

    Cons: The audyssey setup is not as accurate (reproducable) as my older Denon AVR-1609. I'm trying to use the bi-amp feature, but still sounds better without bi-amp (so far).

Although the unit didn't drive my speakers much more than my previous receiver, the sound is warmer and infinitely more controllable. Remote is easy to use.

    Pros: I bought it from Crutchfield. They were helpful in the selection process and walked me through the operational questions I had. Much more helpful than you might expect, especially when compared to a few stores I visited where answers were few and far between.

    First of all I would like to Thank Crutchfield for their fine service. This is the place to buy equipment. No muss ... no fuss in the ordering/delivery process. 2 day delivery outstanding and FREE shipping. Couldn't ask for more in this department. Now on to my story .... I originally purchased a Denon AV-1913 and was extremely impressed with what I received for the dollars spent. However, the room I am filling is 38 X 30 and I knew (even though I'm using fairly efficient Polk speakers) I was using too much of the gain on the AV-1913 for that sized room, although it still sounded very clean. I called Crutchfield, after seeing the Denon AVR-3313ci on sale and upgraded to at the NEW SALE price, a real bargin. I shipped the AV-1913 back and they credited my account. Seamless and NO hassle whatsoever. Congrats's to Crutchfield .... this the way to run a business. Now, on with my story. I could not be happier, this AV receiver is a real powerhouse, does the job in that sized room. What was really noticeable was the added detail I got from this receiver. I could hear more depth and all the nuances in the music were more apparent .... outstanding clear, clean sound. Now, I'm prepared to order more speakers, a pair of Polk Floor Standers. This then will upgrade my 5.1 Polk system to a 7.1 positioning my Polk RTI4's I am currently using as Left and Right "Front' Speakers to Left and Right "Front" Height Speakers. I can't wait to experience the next step ...

    I purchased this as my Denon 3808CI will not pass 3D from my blu-ray player. First thing I noticed was it was quite a bit lighter than the old unit. I use the pre-outs so I'm not sure if the power out of the speaker connections would be affected. I currently have 4 Ohm speakers and need good clean power. I did the Audessy thing and was very pleased with the results. Our first movie was Top Gun in 3D. IT WAS GREAT!! Then watched Daryl Hall's House on Palladia...Couldn't be happier with the sound and video switching. If you're looking to play your iPhone through this device you will be disappointed..for some reason that function locks you out of EQ settings and the sound lacks bass. I have Apple TV and that works fine running my songs through that.

    Pros: Great Sound for music and movies.

    Cons: Apple Play (Air Play) is useless...does not allow any EQ so sound is very bad.

    This is a great receiver right out of the box. Denon made an all around quality product with this receiver. It's extremely simple in design, easy to set up, and powerful!

I've been able to listen to music out on the patio, while the wife watches movies in the living room! Finally, you can't beat the price that Crutchfield was offering on this system during their Denon sale!

    Pros: Phono input, multiple HDMI, multi-zone capabilities, sleek features, easy to use, powerful.

    Excellent AVR, best one yet

    Written By GregoryP, Caledonia, WI on Thursday, March 07, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have owned several Denon AVRs in the past 8 years and this one is the best one I have ever owned so far. This model has the easiest setup, very good GUI and options I have seen. My last Denon, the AVR-3808CI, had great sound, but it was missing some of the things I wanted I now have in this AVR. What did I do with the other AVRs? I put them in other smaller HT rooms like my master bedroom or sell them to friends who know me and enjoy good HT setups. This model has HD radio, plenty of HDMI inputs and outputs, among others, including a turntable input, a great front panel display, an easy to use remote, excellent sound and video up-conversion, 2 outputs for my subs, among other things that are often optional in some other mfg. models in this price range. Although it has only 7.2 outputs for speakers, if you don't have or want to have 4 speaker surrounds, you can easily set it up for more front speaker action, either wide or height wise, a nice touch and then set the surround for Dolby PLllz instead of Dolby PLllx. The only thing I would have kept on this newest model is the front display showing my input signal AND the output in the speaker-box display as on older Denon models, just to make sure I am getting signal out and in at the same time, but I usually just set it to IN for now. Sony has its blue light, I prefer the boxes display. I would definitely buy this model again and am going to use this model as a reference for future purchases and recommended HT setups.

    Pros: Excellent sound and video up conversion, easiest setup ever, quick operation, good front panel display, good layout of back panel for connections, many useful features and options available for your use, including 4K and 3D pass through, HD radio and front speaker options if you don't use all back surrounds.

    Cons: Remote could be backlighted at this price point, the IN and OUT signals could be displayed at the same time as with previous Denon AVRs.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was very excited about this receiver. This is my first home system, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I loved it at first. Now, I am frustrated with it. I had to download an upgrade to get Pandora to work. This receiver is buggy. For example, when I turn it on and hit the cab/sat button, it seems to work fine. Then within one minute or so, it turns to tv/audio. Sometimes, when playing Pandora, the screen to my TV will flash green and then the whole unit turns off. Tonight, as I was watching TV, it stopped and then went to some really odd Pandora station with a bunch of static. Not only did it switch, but as I was turning the volume down, the receiver was turning it up...and down, but mostly up. It was really loud. I had to shut off the power in order to get it under control. I am NOT happy with this receiver. Unfortunately, my 60 days has passed and I cannot return it to Crutchfield. I will be contacting Denon.

    Pros: Looks nice.

    Cons: Too buggy

    Far from thrilled

    Written By Chris, SoCal on Monday, December 24, 2012

    Where to start...I compared the Denon line up to the Marantz line up for some time before making my decision to go with this unit. On paper it seemed like you where getting more for your money. And as both brands are essentially identical (chip sets for DAC, DSP, etc.) and the audio specs where almost identical, I figured why not go with the more loaded up Denon? Especially since the Denon in my opinion is a bit better looking, as it features a front cover....all in all, a terrible mistake. A mistake at least if you actually care about how your music sounds. The picture is terrific, and I have no complaints about the video ability at all. but unfortunately for me I am a bit of an audiophile, and the sound was just terrible, whether manually tuned, or via Audessey. First off, I always manually tune, as I feel I have yet to encounter an setup mic system that gets it even close to right, and this was the case here as well. But even after carefully tuning, it had lackluster bass response, unrealistic mids, and harsh highs that ran together. The soundstage was small, lacked any clarity and depth, and some instruments were just plain horribly reproduced. The build quality of the unit is very sad too, especially for an expensive Denon. The back panel flexes when inserting speaker plugs, and the power cable fits very loosely. I can go on and on, but am running out of review space. Got myself a sr6007 instead, slightly better build quality, and thankfully much better sound

    Pros: video quality, ease of use, good looks

    Cons: almost everything else, sound quality, build quality. Denon and Marantz need to step up the build quality, which has taken a huge turn for the worse since moving assembly to China.

    purchased the 3311 in Mar 2011, have become completely disgusted and frustrated with 3311ci AVR, internet radio is unreliable (drop outs, gui response time is terrible) all video sources now have a series of red and/or blue horizontal lines displayed, picture quality has degraded, unit frequently 'locks up', need to unplug to 'reboot' unit, these issues have been a problem shortly after purchase, Denon support and service has been for all practical puposes nonexsistent, I decided on this unit for internet radio, optical digital input and output, and claimed exceptional video processing, I have been a Denon fan and had other products since the 1970's, no more, I suggest caution when purchasing a Denon product and at the first sign of troubles RETURN IT I do want to say Crutchfield has been and is a good company and will always be one of the first I consider doing business with, the issue is not with them but with one of the companies they represent and it's products

    Pros: none

    Cons: no customer support

    Getting used to it

    Written By jllaclair, Towson, MD on Thursday, December 13, 2012

    It has been almost 14 years since I purchased my last receiver. The technology that is in today's receivers is incredible. I've had issues when switching from one audio source to cable source and fiddeling with the remote for 15 minutes trying to get the sound back. Simple solution was to turn the receiver off and on again. Then it happened again, and after about anohter 30 min I found out that it kept switching from digital to Analog, and I finally found the setting for Auto. It's a lot to setup at first and learn all the functions of the receiver, but it does sound great! I do feel I am sometimes switching back and forth from Dobly and Neo 6 for theater and music, and I don;t know why under stereo I don't get sub, sub is only offered on Dolby or NEO. I do have a little bleed over from the tuner through the speakers when I switch to a CD or DVD, prior to turning on those systems, but when I turn them on the bleed over stops. Not sure if I will take it back or try to investigate further. overall I am impressed with all the offerings this system has and love the airplay... some of the HD stations don;t sound particulary great when broadcasting below 128Kbs.

    This machine is fantastic for a multi room audio and video set up. The on screen user interface is easy to use and is intuitive. Switching ins and outs to the three different zones is easy. The machine does not run as hot as other receivers I have had.

    Pros: versatile multi room functions, easy to navigate on screen display, reasonable price

    Cons: no wi fi capabilities

    Denon 3313

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a very good receiver, if you do not plan on using the FM Tuner in the 96-101MHz area. I have tried two of these units and both will "cut-out", no sound output for a second, after about 10 minutes of playing. That ruins a lot of great music! None of the other modes have this problem, just the FM Tuner mode. This is unacceptable for the price! I won't put up with it, give me a Yamaha or (yuck) Onkyo. This Denon fails to deliver so only 2 stars.

    Pros: Terric sound, just do not use as an FM receiver, you will be disappointed..

    Cons: It's too bad Denon released this unit with defective FM circiutry. I will NEVER purchase another of their products.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great package, well pleased with the available features, still learning what's available. Have not tried to run video (sat) through the amp yet, results to be determined for loss of picture clarity

    Pros: Sound is beyond crystal clear and well above what I expected. Easy hook up. Easy menu.

    Cons: Once connected to the net, took 2+ hours to update (may have been server). Does not have sufficient power to feed my tower speakers

    Excellent Receiver!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Long time Denon owner, they make solid products and well worth the price for the quality and features you pay for. This receiver is no exception. Upgraded from a 2808CI as I needed the HDMI 1.4 for 3D pass through. Product setup was simple, the onscreen setup and Audyssey speaker setup worked perfectly for my room, and the power and sound quality coupled with my speaker setup brought the whole system to a new life. The additional features, multiple-zones, internet access (SiriusXM, Pandora, etc.), firmware updates, Apple AirPlay, on-screen display for volume adjustment, setup, etc. made this well worth the money.

    Pros: Setup, power and output, on-screen display, multiple zones, internet connectivity, AirPlay, ports and connections.

    Cons: Not really a con, but a higher-end remote for the high-end receiver would've been a great compliment.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is an excellent receiver. It replaces an older Denon and the IR codes are the same.

    Pros: Excellent quality of audio. Easy set up. Light weight. Does not get very hot. iPod/iPad app works very well.

    Cons: Internet connection is not WiFi. Zone 2 and 3 audio cannot be independent, unless the audio output to each is monaural.

    awesome upgrade

    Written By mr roy, baton rouge la on Saturday, August 25, 2012

    a bonus with the audessey which checks all your speaker placement can go wrong very strong power output with dual subs endless adjustments takes patience to set up but well worth the wait

    Pros: takes time to set up

    Cons: none at all no manual but includes a cd rom

    Awsome product

    Audio Features

    High-Quality Construction: The Denon AVR-3313CI offers a minimum signal path design and direct mechanical ground construction, with independent power supplies for high-quality, audiophile-type sound; all in a vibration resistant chassis.

    • Minimum Signal Path Design: The simple & straight design concept has been thoroughly implemented in the signal paths to contribute to clean audio and video playback. Signal paths are as short as possible to keep signal degradation in the audio and video circuitry to a minimum.
    • Direct Mechanical Ground Construction: Vibration-resistant construction has been used to suppress the adverse influences of vibration on sound quality. The power transformers, a source of vibration, have been securely mounted on the high rigid bottom chassis. Direct mounting of cast-iron feet to the radiator in near proximity to each other serves to suppress mutual vibration with the power transformers and other sources of vibration.
    • Independent Power Supplies: The Denon AVR-3313CI employs independent stable power supplies for high-quality sound and picture playback.
    • Vibration Resistant Construction: Vibration-resistant construction suppresses the negative influence of vibration on sound quality. Power transformers are securely mounted on the receiver's solid bottom chassis to minimize vibration

    Equal Power Amp Design w Discrete Circuitry: The Denon AVR-3313CI is equipped with a 7 channel power amplifier rated at 125-watts (into 8-ohms, at 20-20kHz, 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-3313CI's five 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 quality.
