Denon's new flagship receiver to have HD Radio

The AVR-3312CI also features enhanced network capability; everything from Airplay to Pandora to Rhapsody, in addition to the afore-mentioned DLNA 1.5 support. There are currently 12,000 internet radio stations which are accessible via the Denon AVR and can be neatly programmed in as "tuner" presets; leading many of us to wonder - how soon before traditional AM/FM tuner sections disappear altogether from AVRs? It may be a little early to say goodbye entirely to terrestrial radio broadcasts because the AVR-3312CI also has an HD Radio tuner on board.
The HD Radio addition appears to be more of a "why not" than anything, since the box seems to be going for an "it does everything" angle.

Last year's AVR-3311ci has an HD radio tuner as well. Nothing new here except something about presets, I think. BTW, it has HD on both FM and AM, though I've never been able to pick-up an AM one.

It is not flagship. It is only the highest from new one's announced. Last year models had HD radio all the way down to AVR-1911. It looks like Denon eliminated HD Radio from lower models this year. Denon had HD Radio on some of their receivers for at least last 4 years.

I have HD radio on the 4308. Hopefully, they've improved the interface by now. Although the SQ was really good, trying to find and tune a station was a major PITA.

The HD Radio on the 3311CI is pretty good, in fact I use it quite often. I really like the feature, but I live in a major city.
