Feature-portfolio of the AVR-4311 is something for every Member of the family is guaranteed. The kids look forward to the 3D-Bilderspaß of your Blu-ray player and the favorite pieces and dramas by iPod and external memory stick (USB) or media servers (via network). By MP3 plays all the Denon up HD Flacs with 96/24 resolution.
The Lady of the House can revel in the paid shallows of the Napster offer or free research Internet radio stations from all over the world. And the highfidel-minded connoisseur mag may re-activate the SACD player, analog 5.1 input wire or direct the DSD stream directly via HDMI to the AVR-4311.
This happens be to a Denon Universal Player of recent design, even the in-house Denon link than ideal connection in question, which will at the same time synchronization commands from the receiver directly to the player and thus reduces the Jittergefahr when the conversion would be.
By the way, the mandatory setting up the receiver with Audyssey MultEQ XT32 a lot easier: the latest calibration and automatic Equalizer itself on finer acoustics corrections and is able to calibrate even two subwoofers for simultaneous operation.
Seven HDMI inputs of the latest generation with two parallel outputs image technically more than up-to-date is the AVR-4311. The Denon can make full use of the acoustic benefits of the digital universal phone: in addition to the HD sound formats of Blu-ray disc is the AVR-4311 the SP/DIF signal of an accordingly equipped flat-screen TV, the sound of the TV tuner without additional cabling to the Denon can route the audio return channel (ARC).

Also the measured frequency responses speak a unique broadband language. You should use rather short cable stripping by the PreOuts with 1244 ? resistance. Consumption standby/operating: 2.7/37.7 W.
The pickled Blu-ray disc by the police-with Dolby TrueHD-encoding – played entirely in the hands of the AVR-4311. The percussion game by drummer Stewart Copeland was filigree dissolved as well as incredibly powerful, the booth of Tom in “wrapped around your finger” vibrated with each beat somewhere deep in the stomach area. The opponents of Sony Marantz and anthem of the AVR-4311 occurs before leaving also in the stereo pass, which was much more precise and differentiated.
