Immerse yourself in audiophile-quality home theater sound with the Denon AVR-4310CI. Its seven high-current channels of amplification and cutting-edge surround sound processing deliver enveloping audio for all your movies, music, TV shows, and video games. The '4310CI also treats you to some of the most advanced video processing available for top-notch picture quality from all your video sources. Plus you get a wide array of entertainment options, including PC networking, HD Radio, and iPod® integration.
For the most accurate home theater sound possible in your room, Denon equipped this receiver with Audyssey MultEQ®, a sophisticated automatic speaker calibration system that helps you get the most accurate home theater sound possible. Watch a video on how Audyssey MultiEQ improves sound in your room.
The '4310CI uses the included microphone to analyze sound from up to six different listening positions, then automatically adjusts individual level, equalization, and delay settings for each of your speakers. You'll hear precise, uniform sound across a wide listening area instead of just a single "sweet spot," so everyone in the room can enjoy optimized home theater sound.
This multi-channel powerhouse gives you the latest surround sound decoding to take full advantage of the high-resolution audio soundtracks found on many Blu-ray players and discs. The '4310CI also adds Dolby's newest surround technology Dolby® Pro Logic® IIz. This cool feature lets you add an optional pair of front "height" speakers for a larger soundstage with an expanded vertical dimension. And this receiver is one of the first to offer Audyssey DSX (Dynamic Surround Expansion). Like Dolby Pro Logic IIz, DSX processing allows you to add a pair of front height speakers in place of back surrounds. Or, you can choose to connect optional front "wide" speakers instead, creating a wider soundstage for greater home theater impact and realism.
Six HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs give you plenty of connectivity for all your gear, including today's sophisticated high-def video components. The receiver's high-performance Anchor Bay VRS video processor delivers superior video scaling and deinterlacing it can upconvert all your video sources to resolutions as high as 1080p. You'll see improved detail and smoother playback from all your video components. Six separate picture adjustments, including noise reduction, color saturation level, and brightness, let you fine-tune the look of each of your video input sources, then store those settings in the receiver's memory. You break free of the "one-size-fits-all" picture setting limitation of most receivers, while still enjoying the convenience of a single-cable connection to your TV.
The '4310CI gives you plenty of digital music options, too. Connect it to a wired PC network to access music files and JPEG photos stored on your computer. View track titles on your TV and select the tunes you want to hear using the receiver's remote. You can also enjoy Internet Radio stations over your broadband connection. A built-in HD Radio tuner lets you listen to the free, digital over-the-air programming that many AM and FM stations now broadcast. And the '4310CI is SIRIUS and XM Radio Ready. Just add an optional home tuner to receive your favorite satellite radio channels.
Plug your iPod® directly into the '4310CI's handy front-panel USB input to enjoy the music stored on your player. The USB inputs also allow you connect a wide range of portable MP3 players, a USB flash memory drive, or hard disk drive loaded with your favorite tunes. When you add Denon's optional control dock, your iPod becomes a fully integrated component in your A/V system. You can view its menu on your TV and select songs, photos, or videos using the receiver's remote. Switch on Denon's Compressed Audio Restorer mode to hear your MP3 collection at its best.
Your receiver powers your speakers and lets you connect and select your entertainment sources. But a great receiver does a lot more it ignites your emotions. From the passion of a favorite musical artist, to the crossfire of a super-charged movie soundtrack, to the intensity and immersion of a fast-paced video game, your receiver is the key to experiencing and enjoying it in full.
I replaced a Denon 4306 with this 4310. The main differences between the 4310 and the 4311 is that the 4310 supports XM Radio while the 4311 doesn't, and the 4311 supports 3D BluRay while the 4310 doesn't. I must have XM Radio, and 3D upsets both my and my wife's stomachs. That means the 4310 is what I need. The sound quality has definitely been upgraded since the 4306 was released, and the GUI has been GREATLY improved in the 4310. Since the current price for the 4310 is now less than half of the regular price it made no sense for me to wait any longer to upgrade. Being able to take advantage of Crutchfield's lifetime support as well made the whole transaction a no-brainer. Thanks, Crutchfield.
I upgraded to this receiver from an Onkyo 606 that fried about two years into having it (a common problem for that model I later found out). After a poor experience with Onkyo customer service, I went with Denon and I terribly happy that I did.
The receiver is quite easy to set-up, but make sure that you use HDMI cables whenever possible for the most consistent performance. The iPhone intergration is a great plus as well. Make sure to buy this model before they run out of stock.
My one main complaint for an otherwise flawless product is that I can't use it the way I thought I would... my dream of an 11.1 system will remain on hold for a while. In the mean time, this thing rocks the 7.1 like nothing else! Surround wide is so much better than additional rear channels. I'm not running surround high mainly because I can't do that and wide at the same time.
When I hooked it up initially, it wanted to update the firmware, so I let it... the problem was, I was sharing my cell phone's internet connection with my network, and I underestimated the size of the update! It failed, bad... Crutchfield was great though - they RMA'd me immediately. In the mean time, my DSL finally got hooked up, and I was able to un-brick the unit. I returned the replacement unit, and I've been rolling along with the original one.
The network control is the BEST feature ever! I am almost always in front of a computer at home (laptop, desktop, HTPC, etc), and the ability to open the "website" on the Denon and control it is so convenient. I can also control it through my cell phone with a free application over the wifi, or through the web browser. Nice.
The Anchor Bay video processing is excellent.
And now for the main reason I bought it: It sounds like a Denon! There's a pleasant warmth to a Denon that my Onkyo 905 didn't have. I'm VERY pleased with the sound performance, it's accurate enough, but so much sweeter than the Onkyo was.
This unit replaced a Denon 3805 receiver that still runs perfectly. However, right out of the box, the sound quality was noticeably improved over the 3805--much crisper dialogue from my center channel, less grainy highs. This was before I ran the Audyssey setup, which improved things even more. I use a single HDMI cable to connect this to my monitor, and the system is set up to let the 4310 do all do the video processing. I am getting a noticeably better picture with this setup than I did before, on all of my video sources from cable on up to Blu-Ray. I had little trouble setting up DNLA access to music files on my PC, although I wish it would play WAV files and not just MP3's. It plays music from my ipod touch without needing an ipod dock. Internet radio also works well. I haven't done much with HD radio--poor reception in my area. The manual is better than that of the 3805, but I agree with an earlier reviewer who liked the instructions on Batpig's website, which are a useful supplement to the sometimes cryptic descriptions of various features.
Looked around all over the place for a home theater receiver and found this one here at Crutchfield. I could go on forever about a great number of features that I love about this receiver that I discovered after the purchase, but I am going to concentrate on the main reason I bought this receiver, SOUND !
It is amazing clear and sounds great. It was easy to set up sound for my room with high ceilings with an included microphone and auto setup feature that takes sound readings from several places in the room and them automatically optimizes the settings. Very easy to setup.
The surround sound is amazing and it has the latest surround formats. It also is 7.1 surround capable with 7 different amplifiers to avoid interference and give you clear sound with music as well as movies.
Video processing made a notable difference in the picture on my TV. I have Direct TV HD and when I used the receiver to process the video it seems much sharper.
I recommend anyone that has this much money to spend on a receiver to consider the AVR4310ci.
Just a note: I purchased the Definitive Pro-Cinema 800 surround sound speaker system to use with this receiver.
Bought this on sale. If you don't need 3D, I can't imagine a better value. Using this to power a 7.1 home theater in my basement with Polk in-wall speakers. As much power as you could ask for and clean all the way up to ear-bleeding volumes. Took me a couple of hours to get all the wires hooked up. The Denon manual is indecipherable, but there is a guy named Batpig that has a website with step by step directions. System is now optimized for the room and automatically adjusts to whatever sound is on the Tivo, Bluray or whatever.
Out of the box this reciever rocks! The Audyssey auto set up was flawless and really made a big difference, it has you calibrate up to 8 different positions in your home theater room to create that "sweet spot" literally everywhere in the room. I upgraded to this receiver from a Pioneer Elite and the difference was night and day, my wife even noticed a distinct difference. If you are a plug-and-play kind of audio enthusiast then this receiver is not for you because setup of this receiver requires you to read the manual in great detail to setup this receiver properly. After I completed the Audyssey setup I hooked up a Panasonic Blu-Ray player with no hiccups and watched Spiderman, this receiver reproduced sounds I previously never heard come out of my speakers with the older unit. Highs were crisp and the lows shook the second floor as if we were experiencing an earth quake. Hooking up your I-pod is as easy as 1-2-3 and control is built in so you need no docking station. The 5 channel surround mode makes I-pod use a definate plus to include watching tv (i.e. football, hockey and baseball).
Overall I am very satisfied with this receiver and would recommend it to anyone and everyone who wants the best. Price is a little high but you get what you pay for. The only cons that I have are the users manual needs to be reworked due to twonky setup and trouble shooting guides and the remote needs to be redesigned. After you get used to both it is no big deal.
What's great: New Features - HDMI HD Comcast Compatible - HD Radio - Audyssey MultEQ XT, Dynamic Volume, Dynamic EQ What's not so great: - Price :( - Doesn't Cook - Isn't a Wireless Network -
"I originally started out buying a Denon 3808, Denon 4308 and Denon 4310 and eventually I kept the 4310. This is an awesome system, the sound, HD Radio, the new Audyssey Dynamic Volume and Mult EQ Xt are all worth the cost. It has the latest Video processor and all of the previous model's bugs have been worked out and corrected in this model (previous model to this was the Denon AVR 3808). Even the auto setup was incredible in which it even pre-adjusted the sub woofer level before it started the auto setup. Just a well thought out and quality AV Receiver (4310) from DENON. The only other Denon AVR better than this is the 4810($3k) or the Flag Ship model which is aprox usd 5k. For the money, you can't go wrong with the 4310. Just take your time to read the instructions, ask crutchfield and Denon Tech support allot of questions and you will have it running at a 100% perfect. Just be patient. It's be daunting at first, but you will eventually understand all of it's features. Trust me, this thing rocks, when you see on line, it just doesn't show all of it's features until you get it shipped home and set it up. I don't understand what the previous reviewer was complaining about the screen set up and programming, it's just perfect.
- Lots of inputs and outputs
- Great sound
- The remote is rubbish.
- The GUI for setting things up is terrible
- The Web interface provided by the device to alternatively set things up is rubbish
- On the first boot the device took 50 minutes to update itself
- DLNA support may work for audio and pictures, but it doesn't seem to support videos
I'm a software engineer writing kernel and user space code at a small company in Cupertino for a very popular phone and this thing makes me cringe. If you're looking for an elegant and easy to setup solution, look somewhere else. If you're looking for something that will provide you with hours of hunt for the right submenu to set x, this is definitely the device for you.

7-Channel Equal Power Amplifier: The Denon AVR-4310CI features a 7-channel equal power, discrete amplifier. Each channel is rated at 130 watts RMS. There are seven amplifier channels built into the receiver. These channels are typically used for 7.1 channel surround in the main room, but the AV receiver offer various amplifier configurations to accommodate your home theater setup.
Note: Zone 2 and Zone 3 feature either a preamp-output or speaker terminal output so you can use this amp or a separate amp to power speakers in another room. When using the AVR-4310CI to power speakers in a second room of your home, the main zone is restricted to 5.1-channel at the same time. Also, when using the AVR-4310CI to power speakers in a second and third room of your home the second and third zone are restricted to mono operation and the main zone is limited to 5.1 channels at the same time. When using the receiver's preamp output terminals for the second and third room you need an additional amplifier in each room to power those speakers and the main Zone of the receiver remains 7.1-channel.
Minimum Signal Path Construction: The AVR-4310CI's circuit board layout and mechanical construction is designed to minimize audio and video signal paths in order to maximize video and sound quality:
24-Bit, 192 kHz D/A Converters: The AVR-4310CI uses highly accurate PCM-1791A Digital-to-Analog converters, two for each channel, for a total of 16. The 192kHz sampling and 24-bit word length capabilities of the DACs allows you to play high-resolution recordings and hear the increased clarity, detail and dynamic range of those recordings.
AL24 Processing Plus: Denon's AL24 Processing Plus technology dramatically improves information volume in the time axis region using high-speed signal detection and processing technology. In addition to expanding to expanding original 16-bit data to 24 bits, AL24 Processing Plus uses data interpolation along the time axis or upconverted sampling to achieve natural interpolation without losing the original data. A digital filter is used to further expand adaptability and perform optimum filtering calculations for ringing-free pulse response, pulsive music data and attack sounds. The result is reproduction of such spatial information as the delicate nuances in your music, the positions of the performers, and the breadth, height, and depth of the concert hall. AL24 Processing Plus is conducted for all channels and modes other than the DSD Direct mode.
DDSC HD-Digital (Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit): The Denon AVR-4310CI is equipped with the latest technology in surround audio performance, DDSC HD-Digital, featuring dual Analog Devices Hammerhead 32-bit floating point DSP processors. All elements of the Surround Processor are optimized to the highest standards by the use of selected high performance and discrete components, particularly the A/D and D/A converters and the sophisticated DSP surround decoder.
HDCD Decoding: The AVR-4310CI automatically detects and decodes the digital bitstream from a CD that has been encoded through the special High Definition Compatible Digital (HDCD) process. HDCD discs use 20-bit encoding and other proprietary processing to provide the ultimate in CD listening.
Audyssey: This receiver is equipped with an Auto Setup and Room Equalization function, to achieve the most ideal sound field for your room. The AVR-4310's Audyssey MultiEQ XT function is designed to optimize the sound quality at each listening position in the room. The included DM-A409 microphone is used to measure test tones at each listening position. This measured data is then analyzed using a program to improve acoustic characteristics in the listening area. For best results at least 6 positions should be measured, including a main position. The main position is given more weight in the calculations. The Audyssey EQ offers the following settings.
Note: You can also setup your speaker system manually using the receiver. You can adjust speaker configuration (large/small/none), bass setting (LFE/LFE+Main), low-pass crossover (80/90/100/110/120/150/200/250Hz), speaker distance (0-60'), channel level (-12 to +12dB), and high-pass crossover frequency (40/60/80/90/100/110/120/150/200/250Hz)
Surround Modes: This receiver incorporates a wide variety of surround modes to bring you maximum enjoyment from your audio and video software. The unit can be set to store the most recently selected surround mode for each input, so it is automatically activated each the particular input is chosen. The surround modes include:
Surround Parameters: You can adjust the following surround mode parameters:
Source Level: This function adjusts the playback level of the currently select 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.
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.
Restorer: This function restores compressed audio signals to pre-compression form, correcting the sense of bass and treble volume to obtain a richer sounding playback; select 64, 96, or HQ based on the compression setting of the source material.
Auto Lip Sync (Audio Delay): This feature automatically compensates for the timing shift between the audio and video of the receiver. If needed, the audio signal can be manually delayed to match the video signal; adjust from 0-200ms.
Denon Link (4th gen): This receiver features the Denon Link (4th generation), an RJ-45 jack on the back panel, which allows a one-cable connection to a compatible Denon DVD player equipped with a Denon Link connector. This digital connection allows the input of Super Audio CD, DVD-Audio and Blu-ray Audio/Video digital signals with jitter-less data transfer and ultra-low noise.
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).
Muting Level 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-4310CI features 2 optical digital (Toslink) inputs and 3 coaxial digital inputs. Each input can be assigned to any of the different input sources except Phono and Tuner. Optical Digital Input 2 also has a corresponding Optical Digital output for use with a CD, MD or other digital recording device.
7.1 Multi-Channel Input: The AVR-4310CI is equipped with a 7.1-channel input to accommodate present and future multi-channel formats.
Binding Post Speaker Terminals: All of the receiver's speaker terminals are binding posts. They are not 5-way binding posts because a plastic collar prevents their use with spade lugs and they are positioned too far apart to be used with dual banana plugs.
7.1 Multi-Channel Pre-Out: The receiver features a 7.1-channel pre-out for connection to an external power amplifier.
HD Radio Tuner: The AVR-4310CI features a built-in HD AM/FM tuner. HD radio stations offer higher sound quality than conventional FM/AM broadcasts. HD FM stations sound as great as CD quality while HD AM sounds a rich as analog FM stereo. It is also possible to receive data services and select broadcasts from among up to eight multicast programs. In addition, the AVR-4310CI receives standard analog AM/FM broadcasts. You can store up to 56 radio stations presets (8 stations each in 7 separate banks). You can name each preset with an 8 character ID. You can delete any unused tuner banks.
Personal Memory Plus: For each input, the receiver automatically memorizes the settings for input mode, surround mode, HDMI output mode, MultEQ, Dynamic EQ, Dynamic Volume, audio delay, etc. When the input source is switched, the settings last used for that source are automatically recalled. The surround parameters, tone control settings, and playback levels for the different output channels are memorized for each surround mode.
Back-Up Memory: The unit is equipped with a back-up memory that provides approximately one week of memory storage when the main unit's power switch is off and the power cord is disconnected.
Sleep Timer: This function allows you to automatically set the power to standby after a predetermined amount of time has passed. You can se the sleep timer to 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes.
Noise Shaped Video (NSV): 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 accurate signal representations, 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 and 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 can achieve ultimate precision with 12-bit fidelity in both digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital domains.
HDMI ver. 1.3a: This unit has 5 HDMI version 1.3a inputs and 2 HDMI version 1.3a outputs. The HDMI inputs are assignable to different input sources. The 2 HDMI outputs are parallel so the same video signal is output through both. The HDMI jacks support HDCP copyright protection and are compatible with 30 and 36 bit Deep Color and xvYCC technology.
High-Bit i/P Converter and Scaler Up to 1080p via HDMI: The AVR-4310CI is equipped with a flexible video switching system that converts video signals in an effort to only require one video connection from receiver to TV. The Denon AV receiver is equipped with a high-bit i/p converter and scaler (up to 1080p) featuring Anchor Bay VRS processing which provides multi-cadence detection for SD and HD video signal and offers digital noise reduction and enhancement. This means that the 480i/480p (SD-quality) video signals of DVD programs and other materials input through receiver are converted to the high quality 1080p signal of HD video, and output through the unit's HDMI monitor port to your HDTV. The fuzziness in the details of SD video is removed to produce a clear picture.
Note: Video signals input as HDMI must be output via HDMI.
Component Video Inputs/Outputs: The receiver features 3 component video inputs and 1 component video output. The component video inputs are assignable to different sources.
Picture Adjustments: The receiver allows you to make the following picture adjustments to incoming video - Contrast, Brightness, Chroma Level, Hue, DNR, and Enhancer.
On-Screen Display (OSD) With GUI Menus: An OSD with GUI menus can be displayed on your television for easy system setup. The OSD and GUI menus are sent through all monitor outputs (composite video, S-video, component video, and HDMI).
Dimmer: The receiver features 4 display brightness settings; Bright, Dim, Dark and Off.
USB Terminal: USB terminals that let you connect a USB-compatible portable music player are located behind the trap door on the front panel and on the receiver's rear panel. You can connect your player or PC to these terminals and play the MP3 (32-320kbps), WMA (48-192kbps), AAC (16-320kbps), WAV, or FLAC files directly through the AVR-4310CI system. When a music file includes album art data, the album art can be displayed on your connected TV while playing the file. You can also play JPEG still picture files in a slideshow fashion that are stored on a USB memory device. The AVR-4310CI is compatible with mass storage class and MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) USB memory devices in FAT16 or FAT32 format.
Note: You cannot use the front USB port and rear USB port at the same time. You must select which port you want to use - Front or Rear.
Home Network Function: The AVR-4310CI is equipped with an Ethernet port that lets connect the receiver to your home network. To connect the Denon AV receiver to your DLNA-compatible home network, you will need to install TwonkyMedia Server 5.0 software on your PC. Once you have connected the AVR-4310CI to your home network, you can take advantage of 4 home audio network functions:
Note: A computer with the following specifications is required to use the Home Network feature: Operating Systems include - Windows XP Service Pack2 or Windows Vista; Installed Software includes - Windows Media Player ver11 or a DLNA-compatible server software; Internet Browser needs to be Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or later, a LAN port is needed, along with 300 MB or more free disk space.
Learning Main Remote Control (RC-1116): The receiver's main remote control (RC-1116) features a back-lit LCD touch panel as well as hard-key buttons for operation of the AVR-4310CI. If your other audio/video devices are of a brand other than Denon or if they cannot be operated with the preset memory function, the other device's remote control signals can be transferred and stored in the AVR-4310CI's main remote control (RC-1116). The remote control is equipped with "System Call" functions, allowing a series of remote control signals to be transmitted by pressing a single button. Up to 32 sequential signals can be stored in each of the 3 System Call buttons.
Sub/Multi-Zone Remote Control (RC-1121): The receiver's sub remote control unit is equipped with frequently used buttons, so it can be used for simple remote control unit operations. The sub remote (RC-1121) can also be used for multi-zone, so you can use it to control the AVR-4310CI from other rooms via an optional IR repeater kit. The following operations can be performed using this remote:
Note: It is not possible to operate devices other than the amplifier.
HDMI Control: The Denon AVR-4310CI can control select external audio/video components connected via HDMI which supports HDMI control. When you make an HDMI connection with a TV or player compatible with the AVR-4310CI's HDMI control function, you can perform the operations from the AVR-4310CI's remote control - Power off, Switching of audio output devices, Switching of audio input devices, Volume adjustment, and Playback functions.
Custom Integration: The AVR-4310CI carries the "CI" stamp, which is Denon's certification to custom installers that the receiver has advanced connectivity and control features often required for custom home integration and theater applications using premium control systems.
