Denon AVR-X6700H Reviews

Simply Amazing

I purchased this receiver to run my klipsch 7.2.4 atmos setup. The results are amazing! I haven’t had a single issue, setup was a breeze. The price is high but I am hoping to have this for a decade and it will be well worth it in the long run. I have had every major brand receiver and this one is the best.

Great but not Perfect.

Beautiful sound. Unit was a bit much to set up, on fact I had to purchase an additional amplifier to enable using Zones 2 & 3 as it would not send music without a boost. Also having glitches occur when using a mini computer for video, music & e-mails. Glad to have such a great unit, disappointed it is not perfect.

Mind blowing sound.

Easy setup. Running 4 Klipsch r26fa w height channels. 2 subs. Center channel and klipsch surround speakers. The 11.1.2 configuration sounds amazing.

Amazing receiver that exceeds expectations

Denon has always been impressive, but the AVR-x6700H really shines, especially with a home theater configuration. Have a 7.1.2 setup now, but will finalize my 7.2.4 configuration soon. Sounds so good!!

It's a beast of an amplifier!

Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-09

Although not as powerful as my Denon AVC-A110, it's still a beast of an amplifier and great value for the money. It's my secondary sourround amplifier and handles everything I throw at it with bravura. A very powerful, pompous and versatile surround amplifier and I can definitely recommend it (love the bi-amp feature). Best Regards, KC.

Clarity and Detail, a step up from my old receiver

By NicFred

I have long been a fan of Denon, only on their less expensive products. Recently I decided to upgrade from my AVR-X4500H to this receiver and I couldn't be happier. I've noticed an improved sonic detail (albeit not huge) improvement in both music and movies. Another thing I noticed is a quite noticeable improvement in picture detail being preserved and presented to my now older, 4K TV.

It worked great for about 6 months

When it works, it's an amazing receiver. After 6 months of use though, this receiver starting having intermittent issues such as randomly muting for a few seconds, and sometimes it would also play audio that sounded super fuzzy until I powered it down and back up. I wanted to believe it was an issue with some other piece of equipment in my home theater so initially tried troubleshooting other components of my system. As time went on though, the muting started happening more frequently and I also started noticing my speakers crackling for a few seconds as well as the unit randomly powering off. I tried troubleshooting the issue more seriously. After a month going back and forth troubleshooting speaker cables, replacing them with lower gauge wires, replacing my HDMI cables, confirming the firmware was up to date, factory reseting the unit, testing different speakers, I'm confident that my unit is faulty. I wish I hadn't went through the trouble because now my warranty has expired less than a week ago.

Quality Issues

By Vic2665
Rated 2 out of 5

I’ve been a Denon fan and customer for some time. In addition to the AVR-X6700H, which I’ve owned for over a year now, I've also owned an AVR 4310CI and AVR 3313. That said, I can’t in good conscience recommend this receiver or any of the current generation of Denon AVR until the current issue is resolved. Several months ago I noticed an issue with the HDMI operation. When there is a momentary break in the input signal, the output signal (i.e. Monitor 1/2) cuts out for approximately 7 seconds. This occurs as when the screen momentarily goes dark while starting or stopping a streaming program (Netflix, Prime, HBO, etc.). It also happens when the Blu-Ray player transitions from splash screen to a movie or back. The issue is particularly annoying because after four seconds my monitor (2019 LG 4K OLED C1 TV) displays the error message "No Signal Present" prominently on the screen. In addition the AVR appears to degrade the video signal quality. Recently, when I started an HBO movie on an Apple TV 4K, the sound track played for several minutes with no picture. When I restarted the program, my monitor displayed the error message “Unable to play this video: HDCP ERROR”. Rebooting the receiver corrected the problem. I’ve noticed that on the transition from program material back to home screen, the component home screen (eg. Apple TV 4K) appears for a blink before the signal cuts out again for seven seconds. When I bypass the AVR by inserting an HDMI coupler between the Device-in cable and the Monitor-out cable, these transitions are instantaneous - and the picture is distinctly richer - with no HDMI issues. Denon claims there is an HDMI "handshake" within the Receiver. Maybe. However, I've been around computers long enough to know that sloppy coding and/or firmware bugs are enough to weigh down the best electronics. After speaking with a service rep at Denon, I was supposed to receive a call back from a senior engineer. I’m still waiting for that call. The open ticket number with Denon for this issue is: 220204-0000664. I’ll update this review as appropriate.

Does this receiver power 11 speakers? I have 4 Atmos rated ceiling speaker, and my current 9.2 receiver does NOT power them. I don't want to have to add an extra amplifier.

I see there are 11 binding posts for 11 speakers, but the product description states "7.1.4- or 9.1.2-Channel 3D Audio Support" suggesting two of those binding posts might need an amplifier to power the 10th and 11th speaker. Why does the description offer only 9 speakers?
Asked by: Mitchell
This AVR is actually capable of handling 13.2 channels, 2 needs additional power if you want to achieve this configuration. 7.1.4, 9.1.2 or any othe configuration is just the way how you setup your speakers. First number (7 or 9) is normally referred to the number of speakers at your hear height Second (1 or 2) is the number of Subwoofers Third (2 or 4) is normally the ATMOS/DTS-X or Ceiling speakers Hope that helps.
