Not only am I a computer fanatic, I am also a huge home theater fanatic. I get annoyed going to peoples homes and they brag about their new 73″ big screen TV as they run a standard definition (480i/p) to a non-calibrated TV. On top of that, they have a HTIB (Home Theater in a Box) surround sound package with the speakers randomly set around the room. Yikes. But, for us audio/videophiles, Denon is releasing Windows 7 compatible receivers. I’m a fan of Denon, I love their products. Very high quality, at a good price. Not super high end, but great for us demanding consumers with a budget.
The Denon AVR-4810CI, AVR-4310CI, AVR-3310CI, and AVR-990 have all passed compatibility tests for Windows 7, along with the company’s ASD-51W and ASD-51N networked iPod docks. The compatibility means that Windows 7 users will be able to connect their Windows 7-based computers to the receivers, and stream their computer-based content to their home theater systems.
