Hi,
I see Denon released their new line of A/V receivers. What I`m interested is 3312CI. Now, I compare this with 3311CI and see some of the sound modes mentioned below are missing. is this true?

dts-HD Master Audio and dts-HD High Resolution
Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital+ Decoding
THX Post-Processing - All Dolby and dts Surround Modes

I see there are lot more missing based on Denon's website. I wanted to know, if its worth waiting to buy this? are there any notable upgrades worth waiting for (ex: Wifi connection etc). where would be a good place to buy (cheaper).

thanks in advance
Sanjay

Neither model has any THX anything. Based on what we see so far, there's no need to wait for the 3312 (other than perhaps improved network card). Check with authorized resellers Electronics Expo, 6Ave, and J&R by calling them and asking for their best AVS forum price for the 3311.

i'm 100% sure the 3312 has that. Even my entry level 591 has TrueHD and DTS-MA decoding.

Is there anything else better in the 3312 vs 3311?

How does it compare to the onkyo 809 ????

Will the networking be more reliable on the 3312?

I ask because I am having trouble with my new 2312's networking (post in the owner's thread).

If the card in the 3312 is reliable, I would just swap out the 2312 for that (the onkyo that the 2312 replaced is infuriating...)

The NIC in all the XX12 models is likely the same card.
