It's pretty simple. If you want Audyessy MultiEQ XT32 and their 11.2 DSX, this is the only thing on the planet that has it. Fortunatly, it's a very high-quality device, made in Japan. Denon's lower end models are made in China. There is a difference. Besides the big Audyessy features, there are some other nice things about this beast. The amplifier section is very high quality. A recent bench test found it puts out over 170w per channel in stereo and 120w with 5 channels driven. In comparison, the Onkyo 5008, a bigger, heavier reciever and probably the 4311's most direct competitor only put out 80w per channel with 5 channels driven in the same test. So if you need some power, this thing probably has enough. If it doesn't, though, it has preouts for all 13 channels AND Zones 2 & 3. That's 17 preamp outputs people! 17! Buy now! Don't wait! Another nice thing is the Web interface and the on-screen GUI. These features let you hide this away in a closet or...
History, I was using an old Kenwood for the last 15 years, Dolby pro Logic, it was running with 120 watts per channel. I know wattage isn't everything, but for us non audio experts its a good point of reference. I will do my best to be short, there is a lot to say about a system like this.
The is a wonderful sounding system and is certainly over kill for almost everyone, and if not, your probably hooking up external amps to it and making it over kill. It has more wattage then what I can use, on the volume scale -80 to +18, I'm running -50 to about -30 most of the time. The system is probably meant for much larger rooms then what I have it installed in, 16x20, but even in this room size it sounds fantastic, partly do to the Audyessy System I would think.
I currently have it set up for 9.1, I had most of the speakers on hand from the Kenwood 5.1 system, and oddly enough the speakers sound better then they ever did on the old Kenwood. The old speakers don't...
I very recently purchased this AVR & my previous receiver (Yamaha RX-V2095) was considerably less complicated than this creature . . . so, I'm still familiarizing myself with all it's features. That being said, there are a couple things I can comment on at this time are:
PROS: 1) setup was fairly straight forward (if you're comfortable around electronics) because I'm not a GEEK or Audiophile . . . but I can read the manual & use Youtube; so, set up was pretty straight forward. 2) The audyssey multeq xt32 was also pretty straight forward to set up . . . although I don't yet have a subwoofer and so, I'll clearly have to re-calibrate it once I've added one to the mix . . but even so, it did a nice job & I'm pleased w/ the results. 3) Internet connectivity & functionality is pretty excellent . . . 4) AirPlay setup . . . was not as simple as it should have been. The product had to be registered before I could download the updated firmware . . . but the URL...
