Ahhhhh are we going to start this kinda discussion again?
2809 28 lb, 3.5 oz consumes 6.0 amps max
3310 28 lb, 7 oz consumes 7.0 amps max
3311 26 lb, 14.3 oz consumes 670 watts max
3312 26 lb, consumes 670 watts max
4311 38 lb, 2.2 oz, consumes 780 watts max
I just listed the last four receivers of the same Denon AVR class compared to the 4311. Notice the big step up in weight, and the 4311 is designed to supply continuous power to 4 ohm speakers which none of the other four can do. I really don't care if the 3310 manual says it uses 7.0 amp max, as that has nothing to do with the capability or the efficiency of the power amp. The 2809 was rated 115 watts per channel, the 3310 rated at 120 watts, the 3311 rated at 125 watts per channel. But to think that the 4311 which is rated at 140 watts per channel x 9 is less then the 3310 x7 output is not logical based on the AC max current spec.
Maybe the 3310 front panel lights are just too inefficient, hence a energy hog!
