Denon AVR-3808


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.

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

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
