Denon has made their best quality into this wonderful piece of equipment!!
You better be prepared to replace everyone’s windows in the neighborhood! This receiver is a powerhouse! Can you imagine listening to your favorite songs in every room in your house without speakers? HELOS is alive!
The receiver is easy to hook upI
Instead of the usual one position set up where you have the microphone in the middle of the room, this one has an eight position set up to tune those speakers right up!

Not sure yet
Detailed on screen setup instructions are nice but they dont give all the detail necessary to address settings and issues. A full, more detailed setup manual would be ideal.

I am also having a lot of difficulty with sound cutting out after changing the station. Not sure what is causing this.

When working, the sound quality is excellent.

So bottom line, 1 week in, still not sure this is everything it should be.

It's stats make it look like a particularly good choice for the hub of a high-end entertainment system that will be used about 50% for gaming, with a little future-proofing via the 8K support. And it came highly rated for both gaming and general use in the online sites I use that review such things.

I am a gamer preparing for the next gen. My TV has an HDMI 2.1 port and I needed an AVR that will allow VRR and ALLW that a console will produce.

It was time for a upgrade. I needed a receiver to handle the ever changing Technology. I wanted a great product to match it.

When do you expect the Denon AVR-X2700H to be in stock and available?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2020
  Please give us a call at 866.961.7781. We have experts here to help with pricing and availability questions. Thanks.
Bought a receiver from a different manufacturer and it had a smell of burnt electricity had to return 2 of them
Does this unit have the same issued ?
Larry Laurence A P on May 7, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. We are not aware of any Denon AVR-X2700H we have sold that had an odor of burned circuitry.
I want to be able to watch TV in the great room and the bedroom at the same time. Will this unit accommodate that? If so, does it have to be the same in both rooms, or can it be two different shoes ( eg - DISH in one room, Netflix in the other)?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. The AVR-X2700H has limited video switching capability when dealing with two TVs and multiple cable / satellite or streaming services (Netflix). https://manuals.denon.com/avrx2700h/eu/en/ Please review the owners manual for its connection capabilities.
Can HEOS wireless speakers be added as rear left and right surround sound speakers?
A shopper on May 19, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. A pair of Denon HEOS speakers (like The Home 150) can be configured using the HEOS app as rear speakers for surround with the AVR-X2700H.
