Fantastic product and customer service
Purchased a refurbished unit and couldn't be happier. Product certainly appears to be in excellent condition. If I did not know better certainly would think it was brand new. And Denon customer service could not have been more helpful with set up. Had a few issues getting everything to work with a new TV. Every time I called the wait time was virtually zero and the rep on the line was extremely patient and helpful. Not something you can say very often these days. Highly recommend purchasing directly from the web site.

New Denon X1700H 7.1 system
So after months of research I finally decided on the Denon x1700 H for many reasons, However I am sure I still have a month or so of a learning curve to go on the best settings yet to be discovered, but the product has been doing everything I wanted and with a 3 year warranty it does put me at ease a little more than normal.

The fact that I spoke with the support side 1st was huge to make sure I was getting what I wanted with all the new upgrades and options now vs 5 years or more ago,
They were helpful in my process , so in closing the sound is getting better every time I use a new adjustment and as I learn the settings with the 7.2 system.

Thank you Denon for all your support and I will continue to support your product going forward, I do enjoy the clear and warm sound that only Denon is noted for and the fact the levels are good from the stereo to the Surround sound as well.
Thank you

Great Denon Quality, However....
I have owned 6 Denon AVR's over the years, mostly upgrades and always appreciated the sound, features and quality of Denon. However, I purchased through Denon an AVR-X1700HR and I am having frustrating issues with SACD, DVD-A and Blu-Ray-A. I have a Denon DBT-1713UD Blu-Ray/SACD/DVD-A/CD player (HDMI output) which worked great with my Denon AVR-X3000. The multichannel sound now is just not right, sounds muffled, It doesn't that sharp pronounced sound. I have Pink Floyd's The Division Bell on Blu-Ray Audio and it's unlistenable. I have quite a collection of SACD multichannel and stereo and DVD-A discs and I am very disappointed with the performance of the AVR-1700HR. I'm temped to go back to my AVR-X3000. That being said it sounds great with multichannel TV and movies.

Lokking for the right fit
Good day Denon,
I am writing this review for a couple of reasons, I am a guy in my early 60s and I have been researching the latest and greatest on AV Receiver’s all makes and models, I did do my homework on the company’s and who they are and in these times who owns them, It is different now than it was 40 plus years ago,
I work with a guy who has a Denon x3500 he said it’s not working when he move here its 3 year old but he was going to find service for it he said it was great before the move here from Texas but he still recommended it, as well as Marantz, I did take that into consideration as well.

So I called 3 top brand sellers and spoke with each one support and service help, In my opinion the Denon Inc. was the best to deal with and they were very professional and took all the time I needed to get my question and answers done, now for the second part I had a huge learning curve to go though and was hoping to understand the new set up things I had to do to get what I hoped would be in my happy place.
I took about a day and a half about 6 hrs. then maybe 2 hours to figure out the settings I would need to use, The tech then after helping me re set my system then emailed me a owner’s manual to help guide me the rest of the way, it was and will be a huge help tool now and going forward , I still have a lot to learn but the 1st day I was not sure of what the end result would be but now it is clear that this Denon AV X1700 H 7.2 is by far what I wanted and needed for all the choices a I had on my list of wants, as for price I received a $50.00 coupon and I have learn from the past to go to the actual manufacturer instead of Amazon or other dealers i.e. best buy etc. the price was very competitive and I feel that for the middle of the road I got the best deal for my purchase as well.
In closing I feel that if you are looking for a solid system and a company that won’t be going out of business or advoiding the service issues one might have that Denon was the right choice for me and they pair great with my Kirsch R-41m and R-52c & Bose surround cubes. I am very happy with my selection and I am sure you will be too.

Great update to my home theater set up.
This was an update to my Denon AVR-X1200H that served me well for 6 years. It sounds great with my Klipsch speakers and was really easy to set up and calibrate. I use it with a PS5 and 4k BluRay player and it passes through all the bells and whistles like Dolby vision and Atmos and taps into the full power of the PS5 with no problems.

Excellent receiver
X1700 H is awesome, sounds amazing, very easy to setup and calibrate. The wifi feature makes it updated easily. You can not go wrong with Denon In Command Series, starting with x1700H. Dolby Atmos 5.2.2. for small space.

Great value
Excellent receiver. Considering the three 8 K HDMI inputs, this is an amazing value. Video games are incredible. Watched latest Maverick movie streamed - breathtaking sound with my 5.1 system. Setup was very easy using the Audissey system.

Great sound and quality, with minor hiccups...
I bought this as soon as it came out from the Denon site, I got it before the holidays of 2021. I've now had it nearly a year and the 1 issue I've had and still have, is switching from Xbox Series X to PS5 to Google Chromecast as well as within those devices starting a movie or game that Kicks over HDR or DV, the AVR, DAILY, can't handle the switching seamlessly. I will get the Format not supported screen while I hear the sounds coming through, so I turn the AVR off and on or swap Inputs back and forth and its fine again. But it happens daily, might be able to turn on a game, switch to a movie, then after the movie back to a game and I get the error. So, I think the ALLM or VRR, with the AVR over eARC is half baked. I hoped for a firmware update to come this past year before posting this review so I could give it a 5 star, but this is just annoying and on top of that, to get the best sound your kind of pushed to buy their $19.99 app in order to turn off a setting which had the sounds out of the box feel like they were coming from the box. If i didn't buy the app, the setting is locked out unless we were to buy the next tier of AVR's. Other than those, i love this AVR, sounds are big, smooth, loud, and with Atmos, i love it! Hope a firmware will come out soon which will address the Switching of inputs on the AVR and it will be perfect.
