Denon AVR-3808CI review: Denon AVR-3808CI

 

Denon AVR-3808CI

Feature-packed AV receiver; visually appealing graphical user interface; four HDMI 1.3 inputs; can upconvert all analog signals to HDMI and upscale HDMI signals to 1080p; excellent standard-definition video upconversion; onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD...

Main remote isn't intuitive, although included simpler remote can be used; user interface could use some tweaks; graphical user interface crashed a few times; poor 1080i deinterlacing; not Sirius-ready.

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

We were able to get some advance info on the upcoming Denon AVR-3808CI - look forward to HDMI 1.3a and support for 1080p/24 as well as 1080p/60. DVD-Audio, DTS-MA, and SACD are supported and much more

Denon AVR-3808CI A/V Receiver

 

Audyssey's MultEQ Pro is a Windows XP software application that connects between the AVR-3808CI and the installer's laptop. MultEQ Pro can then process measurements taken from up to 32 different mic positions to produce the most accurate speaker and...

The AVR-3808CI is a couple of models down from Denon’s AVR-5308CI ($5,500) flagship receiver but still manages to offer a state of the art feature set and awesome performance for a real world price.

Denon AVR-3808CI A/V Receiver

 

I'm not the sort of guy who replaces his A/V receiver every couple of years when the latest line adds a new feature. When it comes to audio, I prefer to choose a quality component and stick with it. My last receiver purchase was about five years ago,...

As far as I'm concerned, high-resolution audio support is a must-have feature in any new A/V receiver, and I find it disconcerting that some boutique brands continue to release high-priced gear without it. By the same token, decoders for the new...

nice but missing wireless

 

I found a nice review from CNET which will explain it all.

I had this product for a while but decided to buy something new ; Nice sound ; Easy setup ; Android and IPhone app

Missing WiFi and Bluetooth ; Very big and bulky compared to some others

Denon AVR-3808: A great full featured receiver

 

FW updates and new features can be added over Ethernet

Not the great value it was since features are migrating to cheaper receivers
