Optional Add-On Devices
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
- 7.1ch Surround: The AVR-4310CI 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
- Dual Surround Speaker Mode: The AVR-4310CI provides the ability
to connect two different sets of surround speakers, and place them in the
appropriate locations in your home theater room, so that you can enjoy both
movie soundtracks and music listening, with optimum results and no
compromise. If you play one pair of surround speakers at a time (Surround A
or B), the minimum impedance of the connected speakers is 6 ohms. If you
play both pairs of speakers simultaneously (Surround A + B), the minimum
impedance of the connected speakers is 8 ohms.
- Front Height: To enjoy Dolby Pro Logic IIz, you can reassign the
power amp from the two surround back channels to the two front high
channels for better front effects.
- Front Wide: You can assign the power amp from the two surround
back channels to create a pair of additional front speakers spaced wider
apart to create a
more spacious front effect when using Audyssey DSX processing.
- Bi-Amp/Bi-Wiring: You can also 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.
Your front speakers can also be bi-wired using this amplifier if your
speakers support this feature
- Multi-Zone/Multi-Source Operation: Denon's Multi-Zone/Multi-Source
function lets you select different audio/video sources for listening and
viewing in different locations of your home. The AVR-4310CI features a Main
Zone (Zone 1), Audio/Video Zone (Zone 2), and Audio Only Zone (Zone 3). The
Main Zone 1 contains 7.1-channel playback of your audio/video gear in your
main entertainment room. The Audio/Video Zone 2 allows stereo audio and
video playback of another AV source connected to the receiver in another
room of your home via left/right RCA audio or speaker terminal output
connections and composite video. Audio Only Zone 3 allows you to play a
stereo audio source connected to the receiver in a 3rd room of your house
via left/right RCA audio or speaker terminal output connections.
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:
- Direct Mechanical Ground: The receiver's heat sink and
main transformer are located near feet to minimize mechanical vibration.
Both the heat sink and main transformer are fixed to the bottom chassis of
the receiver to reinforce Mechanical Ground. The transformer is supported by
a separate transformer and plate and the receiver's center chassis is
reinforced to add overall strength and durability to the unit.
- Separate Circuit Boards: The AVR-4310CI utilizes
separate circuit board to isolate each signal to achieve the highest quality
of audio and video. The receiver features separate digital, analog audio and
analog video circuit boards which reduces interference and lowers noise
- Main Power Supply: A huge capacity main transformer
provides separate power supplies for the receiver's Power Amp section,
Digital block, Analog Audio block, Analog Video block, and HD radio block
for maximum performance. The receiver also features an independent sub
transformer ensuring excellent low frequency response.
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
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.
- MultEQ XT: The MultiEQ XT function offers the following
- Audyssey: optimizes the crossover point, output
level, delay time, and equalization of all speakers based on speaker
frequency response, speaker location, and room acoustics

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
- 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.
- Dynamic Volume: 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 clearly heard. 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), or Midnight (high).
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
