It also comes equipped with Dolby’s Pro Logic IIz decoder, which provides superb surround sound from conventional stereo audio sources such as CD. The Pro Logic IIz decoder also features the ability to produce two additional front height effect channels, which provides a dramatically expanded front soundstage.
In addition to conventional AM and FM tuning, the AVR-2311CI also features HD Radio. With HD Radio AM sounds like FM, and FM HD radio sounds like CD.
HDMI 1.4a Includes 3D Blu-ray Compatibility
Featuring 6 HDMI inputs, the AVR-2311CI is also equipped with Denon’s high resolution video processor, which accepts standard definition video sources and upconverts them to HDMI. The latest HDMI 1.4a standard is supported, which provides 3D pass-through (Broadcast and Blu-ray), and also supports Audio Return Channel. The HDMI upconversion allows for a single HDMI cable run to the TV, avoiding the expense and hassle of multiple cable runs.
Easy Setup With Automatic Room Acoustic Correction
