Sweet Rig

I give this 4 1/2 stars overall. I would have rated it 5 stars but for some reason I was not able to get the Audyssey setup to work. It kept telling me too much ambient noise, but that was not the case. It would run through 1 position fine, but then got stuck on the second position. Nonetheless, it was fine calibrating everything manually. This replaced an Onkyo TX-NR1030 (a big disappointment), which lost it's surround channels after only 5 years in service. Much better sound across the board and my phono/stereo was huge improvement. Currently running DCM (now defunct company) front speakers, Klipsch R-34-center, Klipsch RP-502 surrounds, Klipsch R41-SA rear surround, and my baby, a 20 year old (rebuilt-updated by a mad scientist from WI) Carver MKII signature series 2700W true subwoofer. My other pride and joy is my 1977 (rebuilt/customized by another local mad scientist) Thorens TD 126MK III with an Ortofon 2m blue cartridge. The vinyl has never sounded better.

Great power and functionality for the money

Bought reconditioned unit for the HDMI 2.1 upgrade. The AVR-X4700h replaced an older AVR-4802 (145 wpc 7.1, no HDMI, etc.). The 4802 will replace an AVR-3608 in the garage. Unit has plenty of power for both 5.1 (has 9.2, but only using 5.1) and multi channel music. Set up was fairly easy with Samsung 8000 series 4k TV. All works with basic functions on Samsung smart remote, using Denon remote for more detailed functions. This unit was also purchased to run the garage AVR-3608 as Zone 2 for outdoor pool entertaining, etc. I bought a AVR-X1700h as well, but returned as is was underpowered for solid movie viewing. First movie watched was The Ryan Project. Scared the crap out of me with the first jet flyover as I wasn't expecting it to be that good. All in all very happy

Great sound and very adaptable package

A great upgrade to an older Yamaha unit I had. I did have the issue others have addressed where audio cuts out as the amp goes into protection mode. I tested every speaker connection and JUST worked with support today to find that the receiver did not like being powered through my surge suppressor. Running direct to the wall has seemed to solve this problem, although I still suspect it's an amp input draw issue, but it works now and I love it.

Disappointed,,

The sound is Denon awesome!! Also, it is setup and calibrate - much, much easier than older Denon AVR’s. The disappointing aspect is that the unit will not play multichannel sources via the USB port - only stereo!!! I really don’t understand that logic at all as I now either need to find a different AVR or purchase a very expensive NAS system to play my multichannel files. Ugh

Very Impressive!

This Denon is a fantastic receiver! I’m very impressed with the sound quality while listening to music in particular. It does a fantastic job of stereo imaging and really makes me feel like I’m in the middle of the music. The lows mids and highs are all clear and crisp. Honestly I bought this receiver mainly for watching movies on my 5.2.2 KLH Audio system and it does a fantastic job with movies but I’ve spent more time listening to music than movie watching. Great job Denon, I’m very impressed!

A breeze to setup for great home theatre

Easy to set up. Great sound. handles switching 4K HDR beautifully to my Epson 6050UB projector. It was especially nice to have the Audyssey to dial in the sound for my specific 7.2 speaker placements. Good peace of mind that all the $$$ aren’t being wasted on a suboptimal arrangement. With the right game (e.g. Halo Infinite) that fully uses the surround sound I feel totally immersed.

Excellent upgrade as a pre-pro

Replaces my NAD T187 - noticeably better sound and video. Using all preamp-outs. Much better UX
