State-of-the-art Denon Solutions for
Maximizing Content Quality
• Fully discrete, identical quality and power for all
7 channels (125 W x 7ch)
To faithfully reproduce the original surround sound, each of
the AVR-3311CI’s 7 channels is equipped with the same
power amp of equal power. Since these power amps also use
discrete circuits configured with parts strictly selected for their
contribution to high sound quality, rather than with low-cost
integrated circuits (ICs), the surround sound playback is of
impeccably high quality.
• Featuring 3D pass-through technology
By connecting a 3D-compliant Blue-ray disc player and 3Dcompliant TV to the AVR-3311CI, you will have a 3D home
theater where you can enjoy high-definition sound and video
on a level you’ve never experienced before.
• Supports HDMI 1.4a with 3D, Audio Return
Channel, Deep Color, “x.v.Color” , Auto Lipsync
and HDMI control function
When you connect the AVR-3311CI to a TV with a single
HDMI cable, it supports Audio Return Channel (ARC)(*1) that
can play back the TV audio in surround sound. Until now, if
you wanted to enjoy surround sound from a TV, you needed
to use an optical digital cable or coaxial digital cable to bring
sound from the TV to the A/V receiver. The AVR-3311CI’s ARC
feature, however, helps you keep cable connections neat and
out of the way as you build your home theater.
*1: The TV must also support ARC.
• Audyssey DSX processing
Auddysey DSX extends 5.1-channel and 7.1-channel sound
sources to a wider and higher dimension. A sound that is wider to the left and right is achieved by adding a sound source
(LW/RW) that is wider than the usual placement of the front (FL/
FR) speakers, and a greater sense of height in sound space is
achieved by adding a sound source (LH/RH) in the upper area
between the FL (FR) and LW (RW) channels.
• High-bit I/P Converter and Scaler up to 1080p
- Multi cadence detection for SD and HD video signal
The AVR-3311CI uses a high-performance video up-scaler
to convert SD (standard definition) video material to HD (high
definition) quality.
• Minimum Signal Path for clear audio and video signal
The “simple and straight” design concept has been thoroughly
implemented in the signal paths to contribute to immaculately
clean audio and video playback. Signal paths are as short as
possible to keep signal degradation in the audio and video
circuitry to an absolute minimum
• Direct Mechanical Ground Construction, embodying concepts for thorough vibration resistance
Vibration-resistant construction has been reviewed to
thoroughly suppress the adverse influences of vibration on
sound quality. The power transformers, a source of vibration,
have been securely mounted on the highly rigid bottom chassis.
Direct mounting of cast-iron feet to the radiator in near proximity
to each other serves to suppress mutual vibration with the
power transformers and other sources of vibration.
•Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit, D.D.S.C.-HD
- 32-bit floating point high precision DSP processor
- AL24 Processing Plus provides more real sound
Connectivity & Future-ready Expandability

and DTS-HD Master Audio
• Direct play for iPod and iPhone via USB
You can also listen to music files from your iPod by simply
connecting it to the AVR-3311CI’s USB port with the USB
cable that came with the iPod. To start play, just press the
iPod Play button on the AVR-3311CI or its remote control
unit. Digital signals from the iPod are transmitted as is to the
AVR-3311CI where they pass through the compressed audio
restorer and are processed by advanced audio circuitry to
produce a clean, high-quality sound.
