New from Denon is the AVR-4311, a nine-channel high-end AV receiver complete with nine 170W amplifier channels, full 3D capability, network streaming and compatibility with the company's Remote App for iPhones and the iPod Touch.
The new model has even HDMI inputs and two outputs, with 3D passthrough, and as well as decoding all the current HD audio formats, offers Audyssey DSX processing, allowing it to support systems of up to 11.2 channels.
A full suite of preouts is available for all channels, and the receiver can be set to operate in preamp mode when used with external power amplifiers.
Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room equalisation and automatic set-up is used, along with MultEQ Pro for professional set-up by registered installers, giving even more accurate calibration through the use of up to 32 measurement points.
It has network streaming and internet radio, along with Apple iTunes AirPlay speaker capability via an optional upgrade, and the receiver also has digit direct play from iPods and iPhones via its USB connection.
More after the break
Control of the receiver over a home network is also possible using the new Denon Remote App for iPhones and iPod Touch, which is available as a free app.
The AVR-4311 sells for £1945.
