Replacing a Denon AVR-3312 (Home Theatre)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone,


We have recently just moved into our new house which has a Theatre Room. The previous owner, however, has taken his AV Receiver with him and I now require some suggestions for a new one. I'm fairly new to all of this, and have done some research but am still confused as to what receiver would be best for the current set up. 


The room is approximately 6mx3m and I have attached an approximate lay out of the set up.


Fronts (C/L/R) Paradigm SIG LCR5 v3 x3



Rear Speakers (Paradigm OM-560) x4



Sub (SVS PB12-NSD)



Projector: Panasonic PT-AE7000EA




He previously had the Denon AVR 3312 set-up and was wondering if this is a suitable replacement or should I be looking at something else. It will purely be used mainly for watching blurays/hd content and maybe some music. I will be looking to upgrade the sub in the future and would ideally like to spend under $1500 on the AV -Receiver.


I was interested in the:

Sony STRDN1040 (Am afraid won't be powerful enough)

Denon AVR-3313 (Have read mixed reviews)

Or should I just stick to getting another AVR-3312


I am open to any other suggestions, or if anyone would recommend the Sony being sufficient. Thank you in advance

With that budget, you'll want to consider the current successor model to the 3312 and 3313, the X4000 which uses the much more advanced version of Audyssey MultEQ XT32.

Thanks for the recommendation. Will the per channel output rating of 125W be sufficient to get the most out of the front speakers? Is this even something I need to worry about. Sorry for the basic question, cheers.

If the 3312 was sufficient so to shall be the X4000, not to mention they will sound better with the X4000 due to the more advanced version of Audyssey room correction.

The old 'it depends' comes into play. It depends on how loud you listen. How hard the speakers are to drive. I would say off-hand the x4000 would do fine. Even the 3312/3313 would be OK. And if it isn't you can always add an external amplifier. All of those models have preamp out jacks.

What are your thoughts on the Sony? The only reason I ask, is that I can pick it up for quite cheap, around the $758AUD.

I don't know anything about the Sony. You might see if there is an owner's thread here that covers that model. I stick to recommending what I know about. Denon Marantz and Yamaha are IMO the best of the AVRs.
