This site has moved to

Denon showed off AVR-2106, AVR-3806, and AVR-4306 A/V Receivers at CEDIA 2005.
AVR-4306 model feature native iPod connectivity. All of the models are XM Satellite Ready but you have to purchase an antenna for $50.

AVR-4306: Advanced Features and Attractive New Price Point

Denon is bringing many of today’s most sophisticated audio/video processing technologies to an attractive new price point with the introduction of its AVR-4306 receiver (SRP: $1,999). A multi-source, multi-zone IP addressable receiver, the AVR-4306’s full complement of advanced audio and video processing capabilities includes HDMI digital video source switching. For maximum performance from all video sources, the AVR-4306 upconverts all incoming analog video signals (composite, component and S-Video) to HDMI output for a simple one-cable connection between receiver and display. Like all Denon receivers, the AVR-4306 offers an extensive complement of connectivity options, including three high-bandwidth (100 MHz) HDTV-compatible component video inputs, and much more, making it ideal for both custom installers as well as Denon’s specialty retail customers. An Ethernet port allows for networking capability, providing end users with the ability to not only listen to music stored on a PC, or the new Escient FireBall systems, but also to control the playback options via the AVR-4306s remote and on-screen interface. Internet Radio access and a Web Browser setup and control function, as well as 3rd party controller connectivity are also available through the Ethernet port.

And AVR-3806:

AVR-3806: Upgrade to the Company’s Most Popular Receiver of All Time

Successor to Denon’s immensely popular and critically-acclaimed AVR-3805, the new AVR-3806 is the fourth receiver in the Denon line (along with models AVR-4306, AVR-4806 and AVR-5805) to incorporate the unique room correction and calibration technology called MultEQXT™ from Audyssey Laboratories that maximizes room acoustics for multiple listeners, creating an optimized soundfield and compensating for speaker and room capabilities to provide a “sweet spot” for every listener in the room. Thanks to its multiple audio/video outputs and independent power supply circuitry, the AVR-3806 is capable of providing users with 3-source, 3-zone performance without any disturbance or crossover interference between zones. In addition to HDMI switching and a host of custom-installation friendly features, the AVR-3806 also features the latest DENON LINK 3rd digital interface, which fully supports all digital audio transmission specifications, including SACD as well as CD and DVD-Audio/Video. DENON LINK 3rd is also included in Denon’s AVR-3805, AVR-4306, AVR-4806, and AVR-5805 receivers. For added flexibility, the AVR-3806 features Denon’s HDMI Repeater function that allows for multi-channel audio decoding in the receiver, but also passes 2-channel audio onto a display to utilize the television’s speakers.
