Not to ramble on, but I would like your thoughts on this.
I decided to hold off on getting the 3805, I'm a bit nervous about buying such an old receiver. I intended on the 3310 to go to my parents for their home theater, but I think they will be satisfied with any HDMI receiver.
I think I will be better off running a 3310 instead of the 3805. They have similar power output, but the 3310 is significantly newer and has more functionality, should I need it later.
Should I power the front speakers or the front height speakers off the 3310? I'm thinking heights because the output of the 3310 is lower, though, with all 9 channels being driven on the 4311, I'm not sure.
Also, curious about the best way to configure the 3310 for this, as it will simply be acting as an amp, turning on and off only. I reset the microprocessor (clearing all the settings from the old setup), then changed the audio input to EXT. IN, set the DIMMER to OFF and adjusted the volume to 0.0. Anything else to reduce any strain on the 3310? Does the Denon Link factor in here at all?
Thoughts? Right move on keeping the 3310 instead of getting a 3805? What speakers to power from the 3310? Correct settings for the 3310?
