It's here waiting to be hooked up. Gotta run surround speaker wire 1st. I had hired a HT place to do it, but I guess he decided the job wasnt worth it to him or something.Not that I look forward to doing it, but if I quoted someone 325.00 for a for a job I wouldnt have stood them up. : /

Got everything hooked up and going yesterday (took all day) and my first impressions are good. Ran the auto room calibration and everything sounds good.
A couple of issues (probably operator error).
1.No sound on sacd playback. The problem is probably in the settings, but I havent had a chance to look yet.
Unit says it's in multi channel playback mode, but there is zero sound.
2.When watching TV in HD I went to the channel guide, picked a new (hd) channel and the tv resolution went to 480p. I turned everything off then back on and that channel went to the correct 1080 p. When I went back to the guide, the same problem happened,the TV went back to 480p.The TV is set to auto when selecting resolution and this has never happend before the 2312 arrived.

Once I explore the menu a little more I'll probaly work out these issues, but any suggestions are welcome.

OK....Still having problems with sacd playback.
I'm guessing that it is the bd/sacd player and not the avr.
When I put in a sacd and push play I see song selection and the play bar as if the song is playing. Just no sound. I let the sacd play and left the room and when I came back it is playing correctly.
I put in a different sacd and the same thing happened. After the disc goes through the 3rd or 4th song, I start getting sound. I can back up to the 1st track and hear the entire sacd correctly.
bd/sacd player is a sony less than a year old.

Brady, I don't believe that I've ever heard of a similar problem before, i.e., a delay of 10 minutes or so before the sound appears. It's almost as if the laser in the player which reads the SACD tracks(it operates at a different wavelength than for Blu-ray and CD)has developed a defect and needs to "warm-up" before it begins to lase, but again, I've not heard of such a thing.

I assume that you've tried the different audio settings in the player(e.g., PCM vs DSD)to see if somehow this has an effect, although time should make no difference in the effect that these settings have.

Brady - congrats on the Denon and a belated Happy B-day.

A note on Dakmart and ecost. Prices are great for the refurbs and I have purchased 5 Denon models over the years without issues. I lean towards Dakmart because they provide a 1 year warranty vs. 90 days for ecost.

Denon's are great units, but the manuals can be challenging. Let me suggest you check in at Batpig's site. He has WAY too much info on the nuances and vagaries of setting up Denon receivers, including a pretty extensive set up guide. Really worth looking at.

Also, I have a Denon 3808 (follow-on to a 3803) and a 1909 (follow-on to an 1803). I have taken the time over the years to make some pretty extensive notes that might be helpful to you. Lots of little problem solving snippets. Drop me a PM with your email address if you are interested.
