Full HD Support
With six HDMI inputs, the AVR-1612 allows you to route multiple high-definition devices -- like game consoles and Blu-ray players--to your TV. It also allows you to connect all of your devices to your TV with a single HDMI cable, reducing cable clutter.
Vivid 3D Visuals with HDMI 1.4a
The AVR-1712 comes equipped with HDMI 1.4a, allowing you to make the most of several premium video features:

3D Pass Through: With the advent of 3D media, it is important to own a receiver that recognizes 3D video signals. The AVR-1712 is able to pass through 3D signals from your Blu-ray player, ensuring that the 3D effect doesn't get lost in translation. It also recognizes signals from 3D television broadcasts.

Audio Return Channel: HDMI 1.4a also features an Audio Return Channel, which allows both audio and video content to be sent through a single HDMI cable. This eliminates the need for separate audio and video cables running from your TV to the receiver.

Deep Color and x.v.Color Support: The AVR-1712 also supports Deep Color and x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture.
State-of-the-art Denon Solutions for Maximizing Content Quality
Fully discrete, identical quality and power for all 7 channels (90 W x 7ch)

To faithfully reproduce the original surround sound, each of the AVR-1712's 7 channels is equipped with the same power amp of equal power. Since these power amps also use discrete circuits configured with parts strictly selected for their contribution to high sound quality, rather than with low-cost integrated circuits (ICs), the surround sound playback is of impeccably high quality.

High-definition audio support:

The AVR-1712 has a decoder that supports Dolby TrueHD, the audio format of Blu-ray disc players, and DTS-HD Master Audio, another high-grade digital audio format.

Dolby Pro Logic IIz:

To let you enjoy an even richer spatial expression, the AVR-1712 is equipped with a Dolby Pro Logic IIz processor. By connecting Front Height speakers and using Dolby Pro Logic IIz playback, you will be able to enjoy surround sound in the vertical as well as horizontal direction.

Minimum Signal Path for clear audio and video signal:

The "simple and straight" design concept has been thoroughly implemented in the signal paths to contribute to immaculately clean audio and video playback. Signal paths are as short as possible to keep signal degradation in the audio and video circuitry to an absolute minimum.

Direct Mechanical Ground Construction:

Vibration-resistant construction has been reviewed to thoroughly suppress the adverse influences of vibration on sound quality. The power transformers, a source of vibration, have been securely mounted on the highly rigid bottom chassis. Direct mounting of feet to the radiator in near proximity to each other serves to suppress mutual vibration with the power transformers and other sources of vibration.

Compressed Audio Restorer to enhance digital music files:

Compressed Audio Restorer is Denon technology that restores compressed music sources to their original precompressed quality to give you a lively sonic ambience with greater detail and depth.
Connectivity & Future-Ready Expandability
Dock connectivity for iPod and network streaming:

Network music can be enjoyed via the Denon Networked Control Dock. (Requires separately-sold ASD-3N, ASD-51W or ASD-51N.)

Power Amp Assign function, for versatility in using the AVR-1712 for different purposes:

The AVR-1712 supports up to 7.1 channels (FL/ FR/ C/ SL/ SR/ SBL/ SBR/ SW) for surround playback defined by the Blu-ray disc format. To enjoy surround playback with the AVR-1712's Dolby Pro Logic IIz, you can reassign the power amp from the two surround back channels (SBL/SBR) to the two front height channels (FHL/FHR). Or by assigning the SBL/SBR power amp to Zone 2, you can enjoy multi-room audio playback, or to achieve higher-quality sound for 2-channel stereo playback, you can configure the AVR-1712 for front bi-amp operation. These are just some of the ways you can arrange the AVR-1712's amps to suit various listening styles.
Ease of Use
Setup Wizard, providing easy-to-follow setup instructions: First select the language when prompted. Then simply follow the instructions displayed on the TV screen to set up the speakers, and so on.

Easy operation via icon displays: The AVR-1712 includes one-touch Quick Selection buttons that let you instantly select frequently-used video/music sources and surround modes. Icon displays on the buttons make it easy to recognize the buttons' functions.

GUI overlay on HD source: You can easily make settings for your home theatre system while viewing menus on the TV screen. These menu displays can also be output to the monitor over HDMI.
