Network & Tuner Functions
High-Quality Construction: The Denon AVR-2313CI 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
- 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-2313CI employs
independent stable power supplies for high-quality sound and picture
- 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
Equal Power Amp Design w Discrete Circuitry: The Denon AVR-2313CI
is equipped with a 7 channel power amplifier rated at 105-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-2313CI'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.
Amplifier Assignment: The AVR-2313CI supports up to 7.1
channels (Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R, Surround Back L/R, and SW) for
surround playback defined by the Blu-ray disc format. The seven amplifier
channels built into the receiver are typically used for 7.1 channel surround in
the main room, but there are various amplifier configurations to accommodate
your home theater setup:
- Normal: The AVR-2313CI is designed to be used as a 7.1ch
surround sound receiver with front left/right, center-channel, surround
left/right, and surround back left/right channels along with a preamp
- Bi-Amp: You can configure the amplifier for front
bi-amp operation to achieve a higher-quality 2-channel sound by connecting
the receiver's front and surround back channels to your main front speakers
(if compatible). Receiver will be limited to 5.1ch surround.
- Front B: A second set of front speakers can be powered
by the surround back amplifier. Receiver will be limited to 5.1ch surround.
- Front Height: To enjoy Dolby Pro Logic IIz you can
reassign the power amp from the two surround back channels to the two front
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 24-bit/192-kHz DACs: This receiver is equipped with
dual AKM Semiconductor 24-bit/192-kHz (AK4358VQ) DACs on all channels to decode and playback
high-resolution recordings with less jitter and clearer sound.

(0-300ms) to control the sound stage size.
- Height Gain: Adjust the volume (Low/Mid/High) of the
Front Height channels in Dolby Pro Logic IIz.
Direct Listening Modes: The Denon AVR-2313CI offers two Direct
Listening Modes which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for higher
sound quality performance. Direct Mode provides playback of 2ch or Multichannel
audio in its original form, without any surround or tone processing. Pure Direct
Mode goes a step further by turning off the receiver's display and analog video
circuitry to minimize the possibility of any noised being added to the audio
Audyssey Technology: The AVR-2313CI features a full package
of Audyssey audio technologies for optimal sound quality. Audyssey Dynamic
Volume offers real-time volume adjustment, while Audyssey DynamicEQ improves
your system's surround effects during low volume levels. Audyssey MultEQ XT
automatically sets speakers to suit your room's listening environment and the
- Audyssey MultEQ XT: Audyssey MultEQ XT technology helps
create an optimal acoustic profile for your home theater. Using the included
setup microphone, Audyssey MultEQ XT measures sound levels and adjusts
speaker configuration accordingly, making setup fast and easy. This room
acoustic measuring and correction system analyzes (via the included
microphone) the audio characteristics of your speaker system and your
listening environment at up to 8 measurement points and automatically
tailors the sound for top audio fidelity. You can set the Audyssey MultEQ XT
to one of the following modes.
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: Optimizes the crossover point, output
level, delay time, and equalization of all speakers based on speaker
frequency response, speaker location, and room acoustics.
- Audyssey Bypass L/R: Optimizes all speakers except
front left and right.
- Audyssey Flat: Optimizes frequency response of all
speakers to flat.
- Manual: Adjusts the tonal quality for each speaker
individually using the manual equalizer settings; adjust from -20 to +6
dB at 63 Hz, 125 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz, 4 kHz, 8 kHz, and 16
- Off: Turns equalizer off.
- 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 compressed sources.
- Mode 3 (Restored HQ): Optimized mode for compressed
sources with normal highs.
- 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.
Night Mode: The Night Mode optimizes sound for late night listening.
This function can be set to Low, Mid, High, or Off.
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.

1/4" jack on the front panel, all the speakers are automatically muted.
HDMI (v1.4): With six HDMI v1.4 inputs (5 rear/1 front), the
AVR-2313CI allows you to route multiple high-definition devices, like game consoles
and Blu-ray players, to your TV. It also allows you to connect all of your
devices to your TV with a single HDMI cable (via its HDMI monitor output x 2),
reducing cable clutter. The two HDMI outputs are parallel so the same video
signal is output through both and can be used simultaneously. The HDMI inputs are assignable to different input sources. They support
HDCP copyright protection and are compatible with 3D signals, Deep Color, xvYCC
technology, LipSync, ARC, and HDMI control.
Analog Video Inputs: The receiver features four composite
video inputs (3 rear/1 front) and one composite video monitor output. There is

through the receiver's HDMI output.
- HDMI to HDMI: HDMI video signals (480i/480p/720p/1080i/108p/4K)
can be scaled to 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 4k through the receiver's HDMI
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.
3D Pass-Through: With the advent of 3D media, it is important
to own a receiver that recognizes 3D video signals. The AVR-2313CI is able to pass
through 3D signals from your Blu-ray player, ensuring that the 3D effect doesn't
get lost in translation. It also recognizes signals from 3D television broadcasts.
By connecting a 3D-compliant Blu-ray disc player and 3D-compliant TV to the
AVR-2313CI, you will have a 3D home theater where you can enjoy high-definition
sound and video on a level you've never experienced before.
HDMI Standby Pass-Through: When enabling the HDMI Standby
Pass-Through function, regardless of whether the AV receiver is "On" or in
"Standby" both audio/video streams from an HDMI input will be output to your
television, via the receiver's HDMI monitor output. You can select between three
HDMI through function modes.
- HDMI Input: Selects the HDMI Input (1-4) for which the
HDMI Standby Pass-Through function is enabled.
- Last: The HDMI Standby-Through function is activated on
