I currently have the Yamaha and Klipch RF-82 , RC-64, RS-41 speakers w/ SVS CS2039+ sub

I saw a deal for the Denon for basically the same price

How do the 2 compare? Is it worth the hassle to change (noting no cost difference- I'd resell the other)?


Also does the Denon have simultaneous output to the 2 HDMI outs?

The 3311 has dual HDMI outputs but only 1 can be active at a time.


I had looked at both of those receivers as well but I went with the 3311 because I already had the 3310 and really like it. I just wanted 3D pass-through. The 3311 is a nice receiver and MultEQ XT is a great feature. The only thing I wish it had was Dolby Volume but other than that it fits all my needs. It has good power and I've never driven it to clipping. I wanted to get the Yamaha to see what YPAO could do but since I knew it wouldn't eq a subwoofer(only the A2000 and A3000 have that feature), I decided to stay with Audyssey as I love the sound quality I get from it. I also use Dynamic Volume quite a bit and didn’t know if Yamaha’s version would do as good a job. Either one is a good choice so it just comes down to which one has the features you need.


If you decide on the 3311, make sure you update the firmware as soon as you get it. The firmware update in april fixed the connection issues with the network card so its good to do it right away.

Own both. The Denon cannot output simultaneously; 3312 can.


Yamaha is a nice unit and holds up well, but I personally believe the Denon to be a notch better receiver. Then again, the Yamaha can be had for $400; do not believe the Denon is available under $700. I would not classify the Denon being "$300 better" and would be inclined to say get the Yamaha unless you need video processing or the third zone.
