Denon AVR-2313CI Receiver Reviews


Great receiver!


Pros: Easy setup, nice GUI, great Denon sound

Cons: Tough to justify the price difference over a 2113ci, still waiting on the official Android remote control app.

I've been an A/V enthusiast for many years, but May 2012 was the first time in my life that I've had the means to buy anything nice. I did some research and found that AVS seemed to be the best community of experts and enthusiasts to help me make my decision. So, I joined, started reading, and started asking questions. I had two main motivations: 1. I wanted an HDMI receiver. All of my source devices can do HDMI, and my TV does HDMI, but I was still using a receiver that only had component video. After my Blu-Ray player failed, I bought a new one that had HDMI only, no component, which necessitated an HDMI receiver. So began the search for a replacement. 2. I wanted to set up a...

Very Happy with Denon AVR-2313CI


Pros: setup, easy to operate, sound

Cons: costs a little more

Switched to Denon after my expensive Onky* AVR died twice in two years. The Denon is easier to operate and figure out over the other brand and the sound is great. Zone 2 works great and is easy to turn on and off. I have zone 2 going to a set of speakers in the kitchen through Rocketfish wireless units using the Denon preamp output. I found Denon to cost a little more than other brands but I found an open box deal that knocked $300 off retail price and it was from an authorized retailer, though I could not find any evidence that it was ever opened or used! Not sure how long the new Denon will last but this one has a 3-yr warranty and overall I am very pleased with it, highly recommend.

New Purchase AVR-2313ci


Pros: Great Sound, Network Connectivety, Price, Functions

Cons: Set up was easy with the mic but had to tweak to get it right and find the correct codec, Video pass through does not seem as good as equivalant yamah

Best Buy honored the internet price at Buy.com of 645.00. This promotion last until 11/17/2012. I am very pleased with my purchase. This replaced a early 2000 model Yamaha (No HDMI didn't recognize the new sound codecs). I believe this is pretty future proof at least for a while. I was even able to run my 6.1 speaker configuration. My old Yamaha speakers were the high quality ones they made at the time and now they seem like new again. The sound is very clean although the video pass through in the store did not seem as good as the equivalent Yamaha. It looks good enough for me on my 55" LCD 240HZ Samsung. I don't care for the 3-D stuff (don't want to be cross eyed) so I can't really...

Denon's AVR-2312CI - A Step Up?


Pros: What it can do

Cons: Figuring out how to get it to do it.

I had the AVR-1802 for many years and was very satisfied with its ability to produce the heart of my HT system. This posting is perhaps out of place since it voices my experience with using this receiver more than evaluating its overall performance and features. My AVR-1802 required using 6 channel discrete inputs via the "Ext In" to obtain pure audio, since it has no HDMI ports. It was VERY capable in handling the audio of my Oppo BDP-83 and the results were impressively sweet. However, the older 1802's lack of connectivity, coupled with its curiously hit and miss encoding of DirecTv's renditions of Dolby Digital 5.1 compression eventually forced my hand to buy a suitable upgrade to...
