Isn't it abit too early to worry about 4k tech?
When/if it eventualy arrives,in some shape or form,the avr's of the day will offer better decoding surely?

Well it's a little bit of a concern, but as long as I get a 5 year warranty with it, I can't see a problem.

This is pretty cheap, but is it any good. Any ideas?
The customer reviews are good, so I'm guessing it does a decent enough job. You could start a hi-fi thread asking the same question. Others more qualified than I can hopefully advise.
Thanks for your help Strapped, especially as I seem to have completely hijacked your thread. ops:" />
Will start a new thread specifically on the 2311.
No problem, though I'm not sure I've actually been any help!
Another plus with going the Yamaha Aventage route:
That saved me another 50 quid at RS, as the free three year warranty will do me.
And hijack away.... I've made my purchase and the thread is redundant as far as I'm concerned. I can't offer advice on the Denon beyond pointing to reviews (like you wouldn't have read them already).
With regard to the 810's lack of 4k pass through, it's not a problem from my end. My objective was to get as good a 3D-ready receiver as I could in terms of sound. The 810 represents the best value I could find without spending a fair bit more than I'd like. On that basis I'm perfectly content with my choice.
Hardware: Panasonic TX-P50VT65B (calibrated); Cambridge Audio Azur 651BD; Yamaha RX-A810; Teac PD-H600; PS3; B&W 601 & 600LCR (series 3); Q Acoustics QAV (rear)
Furniture and Accessories: BLOK Classix 3000 Oak AV Cabinet; Atacama Nexus 6 (atabite metal filled); 3D3 A1112
Glad you've made your purchase. I'm sure you'll enjoy your receiver. It's certainly a step up from the 673.
