Denon AVR-2307CI Receiver Review

When Denon adds the CI suffix to a model number, I fear most users don't know what to think. CI? It is more expensive so it must be better right? Well, for the most part the CI (Custom Integration) adds advanced connectivity and control features whatever they are. RS-232? What does that do again? Just remember this; installers are interested in ease of use. They want the receiver to do more switching, more auto sensing, and assignable, renameable, and multiple inputs. Actually, I want that too. And so should you. The AVR-2307CI can convert everything up to HDMI (including composite video) so you theoretically should be able to run one cable to your display (with some caveats - see below). They have dedicated inputs for iPods and it is XM Radio ready. It's got an auto EQ and auto calibration (not the famed Audyssey but it is something) and a manual EQ. So, while you may be uninterested in the RS-232 port on the back, don't think that the CI designation isn't for you. Cause it is.

  • Lots of connections
  • Plenty of power
  • HDMI/Component upconversion of all video inputs
  • Easy to use and customize
  • Sneaky little remote

  • Setup can be a little confusing at first
  • Zone 2 can only accept analogue inputs

I inherited this AVR from my parents, connected the speakers and had an audio Coaxial running from our HDMI splitter to the receiver.
Everything was working fine, until my youngest daughter decided to mess with buttons and knobs.
I'm by no means good with knowing INS and outs of receivers. So I just decided to do a factory reset.
Now that I reset it (pressed the speaker A+B buttons) and turned off/on.
Thinking this would fix it..but it didn't.
So I've kept the audio coaxial cord plugged in. Which channel do I go to to find it so I can get sound again?
