searched pretty good for a dedicated thread on this receiver, didn't find one.
if we have one, please let me know and hopefully we can remain friends.


AVR-3312CI Integrated Network A/V Receiver
$1099.99 is Suggested retail on 6/17/11
it was approx $100 less a week to two weeks ago.



At a Glance:

Equal amp power design with seven discrete channels, each rated at 125 watts*, and dual subwoofer outputs

HDMI v1.4a supports all 3D formats and Audio Return Channel

Ethernet, USB, Phono, and seven HDMI inputs for added connectivity

Supports AirPlay for wireless music streaming from iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or iTunes

Audyssey MultEQ XT, GUI overlay, and remote control make setup and operation easy

Enhanced network capability includes Pandora, Flickr, Napster, and Rhapsody online support

Backed by a three-year warranty



This is interesting to me:
Enhanced Network Capability and iPod Connectivity
When connected to a network, the AVR-3312CI lets you listen to Internet radio, play audio files, and display images via an Ethernet connection. The receiver also supports AirPlay, which allows you to stream music wirelessly from an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or iTunes. Or, connect an iPhone/iPod/iPad directly to the receiver with a USB cable.

With the Denon Remote App installed on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, you can perform basic operations, like turning the AVR-3312CI's power on or off, adjusting the volume, and switching sources.



With its vast array of inputs and network functions, the Denon AVR-3312CI 7.2-Channel Integrated Network A/V Receiver puts you in command. As the flagship model of the IN-Command Series, this receiver sets a new standard in 3D, Blu-ray, game console, and other entertainment device integration. It features seven discrete 125-watt channels of equal power, dual subwoofer outputs, and multiple high-resolution audio formats for superior surround sound. It also supports HDMI v1.4a, so you can get the most out of 3D content. Enhanced by digital network audio/photo streaming capabilities, including support for AirPlay, mp3/WMA/WAV and FLAC HD audio, and Windows 7 compatibility, the AVR-3312CI is a solid foundation for your networked home entertainment system.

Superb Surround Sound with Dual Subwoofer Outputs
Fully compatible with current HD audio formats, the Denon AVR-3312CI 7.2-Channel A/V Receiver provides powerful, theater-quality surround sound. The vibration-resistant construction thoroughly suppresses the adverse influences of vibration on sound quality, ensuring maximum audio performance with multiple technologies:

Equal Power Amp Design: Each of the AVR-3312CI's seven 125-watt* channels is powered by its own discrete circuit. This allows the receiver to reproduce original sound more faithfully than conventional models, which use integrated circuits.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs: An additional subwoofer output proves especially useful in large room settings where one subwoofer may not provide adequate low-frequency output.

High-Definition Audio Support: In addition to Denon's proprietary Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit-HD and AL24 Plus processing technology, the AVR-3312CI features support for Blu-ray high-definition audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. These formats play back sound with exceptional fidelity, providing a more realistic listening experience.

Dolby Pro Logic IIz and Audyssey DSX: With the option of two additional height channels, these features add a vertical dimension to the soundstage, providing more immersive surround sound. Audyssey DSX adds the option of width channels to dramatically open the soundstage for a more theater-like sound.

Audyssey MultEQ XT Support: Audyssey technology helps create an optimal acoustic profile for your home theater by resolving finer details in the response, particular in the low-frequency range. Using the included calibration microphone, Audyssey MultEQ XT measures sound levels and adjusts speaker configuration accordingly, making setup fast and easy.

Multi-Zone/Multi-Source Playback: The AVR-3312CI lets you enjoy a program source in the Main Zone (the room where the AVR-3312CI is located) and in two other rooms. The source can be the same for all zones, or you can enjoy three different sources in those zones if you prefer. Use the Denon Remote App to control all the zones from anywhere in the home.


Full HD Support
With seven HDMI inputs, the AVR-3312CI allows you to route multiple high-definition devices--like game consoles and Blu-ray players--to your TV. It also allows you to connect all of your devices to your TV with a single HDMI cable, reducing cable clutter.

Vivid 3D Visuals with HDMI v1.4a
The AVR-3312CI comes equipped with HDMI v1.4a, allowing you to make the most of several premium video features:



4 Quick Select Keys provide for one button access to most commonly used sources. View larger.


3D Pass-Through: With the advent of 3D media, it is important to own a receiver that recognizes 3D video signals. The AVR-3312CI is able to pass through 3D signals from your Blu-ray player, ensuring that the 3D effect doesn't get lost in translation. It also recognizes signals from 3D television broadcasts.

Audio Return Channel: HDMI v1.4a also features Audio Return Channel functionality, which allows for audio content from your display to be played back through the AVR-3312CI via the single HDMI cable that goes from the receiver to the display. This eliminates the need for separate audio and video cables running from your TV to the receiver.

Auto Lipsync Setting: The convenience of Auto Lipsync allows you to eliminate annoying sync issues caused by digital transmissions. This feature automatically compensates for timing shifts in video and audio outputs to bring picture and sound in sync.

Deep Color and x.v.Color Support: The AVR-3312CI also supports Deep Color and x.v.Color schemes, which can display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture.



FLAC HD Decoding
For serious audio enthusiasts, FLAC HD decoding support provides for the ultimate playback of your high-definition music files. A compressed audio restorer guarantees that playback of any compressed audio files, such as MP3, WMA, and AAC, is crisp and clear.

Supports Pandora, Flickr, Rhapsody, and More
The AVR-3312CI is DLNA v1.5 Certified and compatible with Windows 7 for audio and photo streaming, as well as giving you convenient web control. This receiver provides online support for Pandora, Flickr, Napster, and Rhapsody, allowing you to enjoy a wide variety of online digital content at any time.

GUI Overlay and Remote Control for Simple Operation
With its programmable functions and intuitive button layout, the AVR-3312CI is designed for ease of use. The front panel is smartly organized and features a two-line fluorescent display, clearly labeled buttons, and onboard controls for volume and source. In addition, its on-screen display with overlay on HD and 3D sources provides quick information about your system's settings.

The AVR-3312CI's pre-memory remote control with Glo-Key and on-screen programming is easy to setup and use, thus giving you more flexibility in controlling your home theater.

Product and Warranty Information
The receiver measures 6-37/64 by 17-1/8 by 15-3/64 inches (H x W x D), and weighs 26 pounds.

The Denon AVR-3312CI 7.2 Channel Integrated Network A/V Receiver is backed by a three-year warranty.

What's in the Box
AVR-3312CI 7.2-Channel A/V Receiver, detachable power cord, remote control, AA batteries, setup microphone, AM loop antenna, FM indoor antenna, quick setup guide, and CD-ROM owner's manual.

*125 watts per channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, THD 0.05 %), 165 watts per channel (6 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 0.7%)

Well, I just hooked my 3312 to my home theater a few days ago and I am thoroughly impressed by how well everything works right out of the box. Sound is great with my NHT 5.1 system. l'm already looking to find a matching pair of surround speakers to go 7.1.

The menu and setup is much more user friendly than my 4 year old Onkyo receiver. I didn't have to read any of the manual to get things hooked up to my HTPC, Comcast DVR, Samsung Blu-ray and Playstation 3. For the most part, I've got things controlled by a Harmony One remote. There is still a little tweaking to do yet on that though.

Airplay works really well while playing my cd's through iTunes on my Windows 7 laptop. Very easy to use and again, it was pretty intuitive. On my iPad, I get a lot of breakups in my signal...might be the difference between the strength of the individual wireless signals. Internet radio works easily too.

HDMI Control works sometimes and sometimes not. I turned it off because it's more of a hassle than a feature right now. Maybe a later firmware update will make it a little more stable.

And that leads to my question. In less than a week, I've had 3 firmware updates. They take about 29 minutes to complete and it shuts off the TV until the update is completed. Does anyone know of a site that explains exactly what the updates fix? I don't necessarily want to update firmware unless it's necessary. Is there a way to turn off the auto update message? They appear to come on each time the receiver is turned on. Thanks for any help.

Peace,
BJMoose

Just updated the new firmware on 7/15/11 and the 3312 does not recognize any surround sound encoded through HDMI connections. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

Please refer to the Official XX12 Owner's thread (post #6 ) linked in my sig for more information on what the firmware fixes involve.

Hi!

I own the 3312, and was looking into the possibility of adding a power amp, using the pre-outs for stereo music. When running 2 channels in stereo direct mode, is the receiver providing 120w of solid power to each channel ?. I own a pair of b&w Cm8's, so was thinking if adding an amp such as a Rotel RB 1562 (100w into 8ohms, 200w into 4ohms) would actually make that much difference.

Any thoughts ?

Those are 8Ω speakers and fairly easy to drive. The 3312CI should put out somewhere around 130W/CH in stereo mode so adding the Rotel will only help to provide more headroom to the other speakers.

For more information on your new 3312CI, join us in the Denon XX12 Owner's thread linked in my sig.

Anyone tried the 3312 with B&W speakers? My B&W 600 series can be a challenge to drive having lower sensitivities (center is 85dB with 8ohms nominal, 4.3ohms min impedance). The Denon 1911 (90wx2) will clip at higher volume levels in my system.

I'm trying to setup my Zone 2 using the Pre-out RCA plugs. I have my living room setup in the front, center, subwoofer, and surround back speaker plug ins.

How do I set up the unit to use the pre-out to send audio to my Zone 2/3 pre out plugs?

Thanks

It's fairly straight forward. Review post #3, para 13(a) in the Denon XX12 Owner's thread linked in my sig.

Hey guys

Just bought an AVR-3312 to replace my Onkyo TX-SR706.
I have a KEF 5005.2 5.1 speaker set which are great for movies but felt stereo performance was not up to snuff, so I also bought a pair of KEF Q300 bookshelf speakers.

Questions:

1/ What would you do with the front L+R speakers that are now redundant? Surround back is not possible (couch against the wall), would you go front high or front wide with those?
Bear in mind I can't make more than a 45 degree angle between the 2 wide speakers if I choose to go that route.

2/ Bi-amping - can I just hook everything up and configure the amp afterwards or do I need to specify the bi-amp setting on the Denon before I hook it up in that way?

Thanks a lot for your help!

No question the AVR-3312 has a lot of options but darn if I can find the one I want. I use the unit as an HDMI switch in addition to all the other options. Often I don't care for the full experience, I just want TIVO or Cable routed to my TV and use the TV sound. The problem is, if I use the remote to select that input, the 3312 goes from standby to full power and I then need to go back to standby. Has anyone seen a way to do HDMI switching without turning on full power? Turning the unit on and off for no good reason does not seem like a good thing.

lol they make switches under around 50 w/remote could have saved you 950

Refer to the troubleshooting tips in post #3 in the Denon XX12 Owner's thread linked in my sig. As noted in your Owner's manual, a wired connection to the router produces better results.

Hello, I just got the 3312CI and have my Direct TV hooked into the Sat/cable HDMI input and one HDMI cable going to the HDMI #1 in my TV.

I have been experiencing a problem where on random cases the picture will go black and there is no picture at all, but I do have sound.

I have to switch inputs like turn it to any input for example DVD and then turn it back to the Sat/Cable input and the picture comes back.

Any Ideas what is going on?

Hello, I just got the 3312CI and have my Direct TV box hooked up via HDMI to the Sat input and another HDMI from the Monitor #1 out to my TV HDMI.

Recently I have been getting the video just going blank when watching TV.

I do not get sound or video. In order to get the sound and picture back I have to change it to another input and then change it back and the video and vudio will be back.

This happens randomly sometimes once a day or even twice a day. But seems like it happens more when the system is only on for maybe 10-20 min.

Any idea what this could be?

Hey! Can someone tell me how to set up the remote control on the 3312 to control other units as well? I've tried the remote control guide several times, but no matter how hard I try, the zone indicator won't flash (as the manual says it's supposed to do) and it seems that I can never get to the step where you enter the code. Nothing happens. I've tried pressing "input source" and then pressing both "zone" and "device on" for three seconds at least. Both individually and both of them together, but the zone indicator refuses to flash twice... I hope someone here knows what the problem is...

I have issues out of my Directv Sat box using HDMI. It is pretty common. Try not using the HDMI. (Optical and Component) to see if it corrects the issue. If it does, it most likely is an HDMI handshake issue that is a result of the Directv box. Lots of info out there about similar issues. Check the Denon owners thread in jdsmoothie's signature in an earlier post in this thread. Congrats on the great Receiver. I just bought one myself and love it... I had HDMI handshake issues myself. I used the optical/Component hook up to fix. My TV only displays 1080i so not a huge issue for me not getting the 1080P at the moment.

I am having an issue with my blu ray. It's a cheap Samsung that works just fine when hooked up directly to the TV.

I'm getting sound, but a very very very jumbled image on the TV, or sometimes no image at all.

Is there a bypass at all so the video goes directly to the TV with out any video processing?

The GUI and everything shows up fine on the TV so there's not a connection issues.

I have read a lot of the forums and have tried several HDMI resets.

Thanks!

I am working hard on completing a long overdue system for our home. As much time as my wife and I spend watching sports and movies together along with entertaining, this is real exciting stuff for us but I have a limited amount of experience with the technical side of it. (Don't tell my wife! I have her convinced that I know everything!)

I considered and looked into using local companies but it quickly became apparent that they weren't interested in any job that didn't cost as much as our pool!

Sounds like some of you guys have a wealth of knowledge I might could tap into. I hope you don't mind if I explain what I'm trying to accomplish with what I've already purchased and am still looking for.

I have a 30 x 30 great room which I intend to be the Zone A primary audio/video space. I have a large MB with a nearly equally large bathroom(hers) which will be Zone B and I have the back patio deck and pool which we will call Zone C.

I have the Denon 3312 on its way. I purchased a used pair of Infinity Beta 50's and the Modulus II Home Theatre Speaker system which consists of a powered subwoofer, center speaker, and 4 satellites. I intend to use this equipment in the great room as the primary listening and viewing area in a 7.1 configuration. I believe this should be pretty straight forward.

I have a large screen TV also mounted in our bedroom in which I would like to use as our Zone B. I would like to use a wall mounted speaker each side of the TV in the upper corners of the room with a powered subwoofer to flesh out the depth of sound but would also like a pair of speakers in the large bathroom(18x18) as well. I would like this TV to be a source for the 3312 so I can route 2.1 back to this zone. I'm not certain how to accomplish all this. I've not bought anything for this area yet.

Similiarly, I have purchased a pair of Boston Acoustic Voyager 6 Outdoor speakers for the patio. I understand it would behoove me to add a powered outdoor subwoofer to enchance our audio pleasure there as well.

I know little to nothing about ohms, resistance, heat disipation, etc., other than they are factors that must be considered. I have a 500 ft spool of quality 12AWG speaker wire and 50 gold banana connectors. While money certainly is an object, I'm willing to spend reasonable amounts to accomplish our goals.

Can anybody make some suggestions, knowing what they know about the 3312's capabilities, what additional equipment I may need and how to best configure these B and C zones? Do I need additional amps, speaker selectors, volume controls, wireless equipment, etc. or am I asking too much from this receiver?

I appreciate any answers you guys may be able to share with me. If this is a question better asked elsewhere a finger pointing in the right direction would be okay too!

This thread was setup without the Thread Starter realizing there was already one "OFFICIAL" thread that comprised all of the XX12 models which is linked in my sig. Review posts 3-6 for more information on your new 3312CI. I have also copied and responded to your post in that thread.

I am a newbie to this receiver so please excuse my lack of knowledge but I am trying to get into the 'Option Setup' on my Menu. I go to 'System Setup' and I can see Option Setup to the right. When I use the arrow on the remote to go right, I get another screen altogether. It says 'Speaker Setup'. Same thing happens if I just hit 'Enter' on the remote. I cannot access the menu with 'Option Setup', 'Network Setup', 'Zone Setup', etc.
What am I doing wrong?

I cannot seem to get the air play to work. I have contacted Denon, Apple, Comcast and Motorola which were all no help. Anyone had this issue?

Check out the troubleshooting section in post #3 of the dedicated XX12 Owner's thread linked in my sig ... which is also the better place to post any XX12 model questions.

I would like to listen to music while either watching sports, or playing PS3. Is there an option that I can have the video to PS3, but the audio of another source?

I love the receiver so far, but this is the one thing I can't figure out. I have been playing music through the receiver, and doing a straight HDMI connection to the TV from the PS3, which I guess is passable, but I'd prefer to have all the HDMI's going through the Denon.

Thanks everybody.
