The Denon AVR-4306 offers the best combination of cutting-edge features and superb sound quality of any receiver that i've ever seen and tested.
One if it's only downsides is that it's rather expensive and intimidating complexity may put off home-theater newbies. There is also no built-in decoding for next-gen HD-DVD and Blu-ray audio formats and no HD Radio.
If I had a bone to pick with Denon's hugely popular A/V receiver lineup, it would be the lack of upper-midrange models. So the $1,999 Denon AVR-4306's mission was clear: fill the price and performance gap that existed between the highly acclaimed AVR-3806 ($1,299) and the decidedly high-end AVR-4806 ($3,500) receivers. Visually, the 4306 is a near clone of the 3806, but the connectivity quotient bumps the number of HDMI inputs from two to three, adds upscaling to 480p/720p/1080i, supports connectivity to USB MP3 players and iPods, and tosses in an Ethernet port for streaming digital audio from your PC or from the Internet.
Simply put, the Denon AVR-4306 packs in just about every audio and video feature you could possibly want--I actually award it a 10 in Features--and it sounds even better than the 3806. It easily wins my vote hands down, but if it's a bit too rich for your blood, you may want to hold on until Denon's forthcoming AVR-2807, which offers many--but not nearly all--of the 4306's key features at a more wallet-friendly $1,099 price. If, on the other hand, the AVR-4306 falls within your price range, I couldn't make a stronger recommendation.
This Receiver has the right balance of everything for me. 130 watts of solid Denon power drives my system nicely. My front channels are a 15 and large horn made by Electrovoice. I use a JBL 2-10" and a horn for my Center channel and the rest are Electrovoice 12" 2 ways from a theatre. It sounds fabulous. I also use the ethernet connection which allows me play music from my computer. Even the turntable preamps are nice and quiet with warmth and are very dynamic. I can't say enough about thus unit, top quality. Highly recommended.
With quality speakers, this receiver delivers pure, clean audio. It is solid and logical. Many features, versatile connectivity. Detailed user manual. Decided on this model because of top CNet editors review, ratings by owners and others. I am not disappointed.
Awesome power with HDMI switching. Just upgraded from the AVR-3805 and this thing is the bomb. Buy one before they go away because the new technology is built cheaper and doesn't have the sound of these older receivers.
