The Denon AVR-3808 A/V receiver is absolutely packed with functionality and sounds great, but you'll need to be an A/V geek to unlock all its potential.

Visually appealing interface ; Four HDMI 1.3 inputs ; Excellent 1080p upscaling ; Onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding ; Automatic speaker calibration ; Firmware updatable

Main remote isn't intuitive ; User interface could use some tweaks ; Poor 1080i deinterlacing

If you're balking at the price you should also consider its step-down model, the AVR-2808. The main advantages of the AVR-3808 are the music streaming over the network port and the additional two HDMI ports. However, that functionality can be added to...

Scarlett Johansson - that's where my mind goes whenever think of the Denon 3808. Denon have updated their latest range of receivers to move away from a chunky, tough exterior, to a smoother and much more feminine look. Personally, I'm still...

I feel the 3808 is at least the match of any receiver in its class. In fact, the 3808 closest rival might be its big brother, the 4308. At an inch taller than its little bro, it wears the new curvier design much better. But unless you are showing off...

Denon AVR-3808

 

Built like a tank and as heavy. Impressive sound but the user manual and main remote control need a serious going over. Otherwise I'm happy with my most recent purchase at a good price West Coast Hifi Midland WA

Great Sound ; Ample Power

Manual Poorly written ; Main Remote requires re-thinking

Consumer review by:

Denon AVR-3808

 

The on screen setup options take some time to get use to ...but apart from that it is an excellent receiver for both music and for home theatre.

Multiple HDMI inputs ; Plenty of power to all 7 channelsfeature packed

main remote is useless ; manual is hard to understand unless you are Stephen Hawkings
