Just a note in case someone else is having the same problem I did.

I was having trouble getting my 5308 to see my wireless router. I tried having it search for the router access point - no joy. I tried keying in the SSID - no joy. It never recognized that the router access point even existed (which does have to be upper case).

So, as a last resort I connected the 5308 to the router via a ethernet cable to see if it would work wired. It did - immediately. I then removed the wired connection and had it search for the wireless router access point again. This time it immediately saw the router and it connected fine.

I'm gald it's working but it was frustrating getting it to work. Hopefully, if someone else is having the same issue, this will help you avoid that frustration.

Other than this one, minor item, which is now resolved, the 5308 is fantastic. I also picked up a DVD-2500BTCI Blu-ray tansport and they work great together. Stunning video and audio (DD, DD+, DTS, DTS-MA, LPCM, etc. they all work great).

Don't know how much you need to ship things. But next time you need to ship something, check out Fed-Ex first. Their ground shipments are faster and usually arrive in 3-4 days. And I have also found that they usually charge a lot less than what UPS charges for their ground shipping.

Check out the HDMI cable comments on the Blue Jeans cable site (you can use their link in the ads at the top of the page).

Did you try attaching the aerial for the WILAN antenna to the terminal on the back ? After I did that my wi-fi worked like a charm.

My last Denon had no ventilation holes on the top, but it did have a fan that was usually off. The 5308 has lots of ventilation holes but no fan. It lets out some heat into the devices I have stacked on top of it.

The side panels are 1/8 inch thick metal. The top panel is "normal".

When watching video there's a noticeable audio delay between the main zone and zone 2. Perhaps this is due to the upconversion.

I wish there was a global setting to limit the output resolution to 720p for my older display. It seems you have to set it individually for each source.

I love being able to disable unused tuner presets.

I sniffed my network and the unit contacts firmware.denon.jp to check for updates.

I'm very satisfied with the unit so far.

I would definately not stack other equipment on top of any Denon receiver. My 5805ci would probably fry an egg.

Since there are a few people with the new 5308ci would someone comment on the OSD. Does it work for volume settings, input selection, DSP formats, etc or only for set up via HDMI.

My equipment resides in another closet off my theater and a OSD like the Anthem Statement and AVM 50 would be nice.

I can't answer your question for sure, as I'm still waiting for my 5308. But if you look at the optional remote RC-7000CI, you'll see it has an LCD screen that will accommodate your needs, and it is RF as well. I'm considering this remote myself. The only down side is it is $299.00.

It's interesting to see how the AVR-5308CI compares to the AVR-4308CI. I was at one time considering getting the 4308 instead of waiting for the 5308. It's easy to justify the cost difference in my opinion.

The AVR-5308CI is extremely versatile. I will be pairing my AVR with a Cinenova Grand 7 to bi-amp my speakers. This will be a 9.2 setup. I have all of the equipment sitting here right now except the 5308.

I have a pair of JL Audio Gothams, the seven channel amp and the following Klipsch speakers:

(6) RF-83 mains (FR, FL, Side Surround "A" right and left, Surround Back right and left)
(2) RS-62 Side Surround "B" right and left
(1) Rc-64 Center

With the Amp assign feature, assignable pre-outputs, and Variable High/Low Pass Crossover Points (12/24dB) 40 / 60/80 / 100 / 120 / 150 / 200 / 250, I think this will be a cinch.

The seven channel amp also has Variable High/Low Pass Crossover at the input section.

The 5308 will drive the upper range, and the Cinenova will drive the lower range.

See the attached wiring diagram:

Awesome speaker setup... those things must ROCK.... big time!
You'll have to let us know how your plan of using the Cinenova amp in conjuction with the 5308s amps and how Audyssey works on your setup.

How is the Denon DVD-2500BTCI? is the firmware upgradable? does it upscale Standard DVDs?
I ordered the 5308 and will be looking for a BluRay player that would be a nice compliment. Was considering the PS3 and sacrifice the DTS HDMA audio output. Let me know your thoughts and if there are any good prices for the DVD-2500BTCI.

Thanks

Last week I got the 2500 and the 5308. The kids have given me very little time to play with my new toys.

You should read up on the 2500 thread. There are many nice things said about the 2500 however the 2 negatives that caught my attention are that, when playing PCM, the bass is 5 db too low (exactly like the panny bd30). This should be addressed and fixed by Denon I assume.Also, the initial impression is that the player does just an average job on sd dvd's.

Go over to the other thread and have a look. You will find others who also have the 5308 & 2500.

I took the plunge and now replacing my 5800 (with PLII upgrade) with the 5308CI. I am running a 5.1 NHT setup with a velodyne sub, panny BDP30 blu-ray and toshiba XA2 into a pioneer that does up to 1080i. Looking forward to hearing the HD audio and what everyone recommends for sound setup for my XA2 and BDP30.

I think this, the LFE issues with all these HD players, is the reason many of us want to get away from PCM altogether.

thanks for the reply I'll take a look at the 2500 thread. I understand the kid factor. I'm still watching Highschool Musical and now the Game Plan on movie nights lol

I curious if other owners are seeing such poor performance from the web UI. Maybe I have a bad unit.

For example, can you change sources more than once or twice from the web UI? I get timeouts when I try. Larger pages, like where you select which Tuner presets to enable, never completely load.

Yes, I did have the antenna connected. I don't understand why it had a problem finding the router access point but I tried multiple times over multiple days to get it to work and only after connecting it via a wired connection and then removing the wired connection could I get it to see the wireless access point. Go figure.

Has anyone compared the "new" Audyssey in the 5308 vs previous iterations? Worth the money?

I have a seriously novice question but hopefully the answer will help others as well:

Reading through Jeff's answers on the Denon Blu Ray players, it's still not clear to me: with the Realta in the 5308CI doing all of the processing/scaling/whatever, there really is no reason to opt for the DVD-3800BDCI over the DVD-2500BTCI, correct? Or is there? (aren't you just feeding HDMI 1.3/PCM out of it or is there something I'm missing?).

Actually the 5308ci utilizes PCM1796 DAC's, not 1792. Many people on here are wondering why Denon used mid-range DAC's instead of the 1792's in their reference receiver. But apparently, Denon Jeff feels they are up to snuff when used in dual differential mode.

Correct. I just got my 2500. After I get done dialing in my 5308, I'll get to it. BTW, the picture (Comcast DVR through the 5308) on my Mits 73833 is phenomenal, so I can't wait to check out the Denon (the 2500).

Denon 5308CI coupled with the Denon 2500
or
Denon 5805MKII coupled with the Denon 3800

Even DenonJeff called the 5805 "a one of a kind product"
and said the 5308 was NOT a replacement for the 5805 but a replacement for the older flagship 5803A.
And he also recommended to a poster that he might be better off keeping his 5805 and mating it with the upcoming 3800 Denon bluray player as the poster was looking to someday move up to the new Denon separates.
With that said I should be getting my 5308CI soon but it will have to beat out my present receiver the 5805MKII if it is going to stay in my system for any length of time.
2 channel sound quality is a biggie for me and the 5805MKII does 2 channel very, very well. How well the 5308 does 2 channel will be a make or break test for it.
Also the internal amps of the 5805MKII are monsters, very quite, very powerful monsters! I doubt the 5308s internal amps will be monsters but maybe they will be good enough.
I've heard the 5308CI has an improved version of Audyssey compared to the 5805s version. This could be another biggie if true.......
Anyway should be a fun comparsion but I'm not sure which I want to win

I've borrowed some better surrounds from my dealer so now I can better evaluate multi-channel performance. The AVR-5308CI's 7 amps powering 5 B&W's can really sound great.

I've decided I really don't like Audyssey for music. I'm happier in Direct mode for both stereo and multi-channel music.

For movies Audyssey is more useful, either normal Audyssey or L/R Bypass, but without Dynamic EQ. It makes dialog crisper and enhances the overall surround experience.

For sports with surround content, I've found Audyssey with Dynamic EQ can sound pretty good. For college basketball games it makes it sound like you're in the arena. I'll give it a try with the Superbowl tomorrow.

For sports with surround content, I've found Audyssey with Dynamic EQ can sound pretty good. For college basketball games it makes it sound like you're in the arena. I'll give it a try with the Superbowl tomorrow.

If you like DSOM, you should check out Roger Waters - In The Flesh on SACD.
I think it's an even better made recording.
Anyway glad to hear you're enjoying your 5308CI
I wonder how much better the Denon separates will be?
For fourteen grand retail..... well let's just say they better be all that and a whole bunch more.

I have a question about the Internet Radio display screen. Does the 5308 display Band and Song information for music stations or does it only display the name of the internet radio station?

It displays all three pieces of information on the tv screen ( if turned on ) or just song title on the receiver front display.

How is the sound of your 5308? I just want to know if 5308 has high mid range. What about its LFE?

I noticed that a few people are using Klipsch speakers. Could some Klipsch users please share their opinions as to how the 5308 did when matched with the Klipsch? I have an RF-83 system and am strongly leaning toward the 5308 myself. Thanks.
