I have had my 2309 for several weeks now and am awed by how much better I am enjoying it compared to the AVR-3300 it replaced. This is the third Denon AVR I have owned and I continue to be impressed with the product's sound quality and input flexibility. Thanks to the tips and setup guidance from Batpig and some other posters it only took me a couple of hours to configure my system once I turned it on. Loved the auto speaker setup, and then muddled through seting the inputs\\outputs. Only one hdmi cable going to the plasma, all the video switching is now done by the 2309, many fewer cables, and it handled all my stuff, HP Windows Media Extender, 6412 Cable box, HD/BRAY Combo Player, DVD changer, CD Player, Dual Deck VCR, Cassette Player, and Turntable! No more switching various inputs on the TV and Receiver, the 2309 handles the video signals and upconverts when necessary from them all, and of course the sound from them all. Great video quality on the upconverts and the audio is still impressing me more each day, especially the level volume and auto decoding of the different input formats. The only thing that will make me upgrade again is running out of hdmi inputs in another 10 years and then it will be another Denon. Thanks again to Batpig and the gang for making this stuff so much easier and fun!
