I was actually looking for a pre-amp for my home theater setup but reading reviews and keeping expenses in mind the x3700 appeared to fill all my needs and desires. I would have given this unit 5 stars (now that it is working quite well) the setup process, especially the lack of better documentation (I did download the manual) gave me some difficulties, especially on the video end. Sound-wise, especially with Audyssey, the unit is great. I must add that the support from Denon has been first class. My on-line questions were always answered promptly and they helped me resolve all setup issues. Heat issues that I read about, has not been a problem, as the unit sits on top of a cabinet, not inside, so there is plenty of ventilation. It is warm to the touch after hours of operation. I am still exploring everything this unit has to offer and am quite satisfied.
I just replaced an older Denon with the AVR-X3700H because my older version wasn't internet capable and was not 4K/8K capable, Audyssey setup was a breeze. I'm running Ascend Acoustic speakers and a HSU Sub. the sound is amazing for Music and movies. I had a couple of technical questions and Denon answered them promptly.
I replaced a yamaha rxa 1080 and I'm very disappointed..the yamaha has way more options to have any sound you want and the yamaha sounds better. Alo the x3700 is losing signal constantly and I have to keep turning it on and off. Probably going to return it. Got it because I wanted 9 Channel I should have just purchased an exterior amp for the yamaha. Its a shame I really wanted to like it!
This is my first Denon. I'm happy with it so far. The setup was pretty straight-forward, connecting to my system over e-Arc from the TV to a 5.1.4 speaker setup. The sound for movies, shows and games is great. I haven't played around with stereo music too much yet, but out of the box the sound seems great there too.
For a couple of months this was great. Then I did a recommended firmware update which failed and completely killed the ability to connect to my network wireless or ethernet and created some issues switching video sources. Very disappointed that there doesn't seem to be a manual firmware update or recovery option.
Purchased from Best Buy in May 2021. Already broken Jan 2022. Will not power on. Now I need to do a warranty repair. I need to pay for shipping. I did recommend this product to a friend and now I regret it. I will not again. The quality of the brand is not what it used to be.
Just purchased this receiver only had it for two weeks but im here to tell you its great sounding receiver was a Pioneer guy not anymore only concern i have it gets hot purchased a fan to keep it cool i have two bas x amps connected to my receiver what a difference
I am a technically challenged old man who likes to crank up the volume and listen to rock and watch movies.The AVR-3700H setup was seamless even for me. My one major criticism is "save the trees" requiring me to download a manual, PDF format which has 313 pages. I am old school and admit, I dont like paper except for manuals.
Yes, it sounds great and has a nice sound stage. However, periodically when I switch inputs, the new input will result in a "no signal" message on the tv. If I switch back and forth once or twice, then it will usually connect. I have tried new HDMI cables. My cables and all firmware on my system are up to date.
I love it my first avr n I'm 40 I'm a bass man so I love deep bass I have 2 klipsch 12 powered n sounds good added external amp with 2 more skar D 4 s lol the avr quit on me jus got too hot I'm going to need a fan cooler asap thanks telling my people bout the 3700 thanks
It was time to upgrade from my Onkyo after six years. Spent the time needed to research other manufacturers and I kept coming back to Denon. The setup was very easy and it seemlessly transitions from different inputs flawlessly.
I'm Happy with my new Denon Avr-x3700h the sound is amazing and video is great the only thing thant I'm not satisfied is the remote control I have been problem with setup button my tv don't show settings on the screen when pushing set up button I need help
Perfect feature set, audyssey works great, and I love that it has a full preamp mode that shuts off the power amps and lets me just use the preamp outs while still getting the benefit of modern well-tested equipment as far as HDMI 2.1, eARC, atmos, etc are concerned. All the praise I read before buying is accurate and warranted.
So far so good. Had it about a month, sounds good. Good features. I have two 5 Polk Speakers on it, 4 x plus a sub. I can only run it about 80% and it starts getting hot. I would be afraid to run it above 80% so it could use a little more power. Volume is a bit low. Sound quality is excellent. THD is a bit higher across the board these days compared to the 70's maybe we measure better now, we had scopes back then as well.
Sounds good. Wish the preamp outputs were fully flexible.Can only use LF RF preamp out in 11.2 mode or all preamp outs on and cannot use the built in amps. So far unable to register X3700H on Denon web site. First model was not in list now in list but not clickable. Can enter other models but not the AVR X3700H.
As the title suggests, the work around for a $1500 receiver to do what it says on the box, is to give you an extra box (requiring you to plug it into a power outlet and use an extra hdmi cable). Luckily it only took 6 months from my initial request to receive it. Very speedy. Mind you the site said 10 - 14 days. The company never reached out, however, I did three times. Is this the kind of service I would recommend to a friend? Naw.
Works as advertised. Setup is straightforward, if not easy. Features are more than anyone would ever need. I still haven't run Audyssey because my speakers are not permanently placed. I wish there was a parametric EQ option for finer tuning. Purchasing through Denon's website is a nightmare with login issues. I could never log in again with my original account. The password reset link doesn't work saying my account does not exist, but that my email is not available for a new account. Turning off pop-up blockers helped, but it was an overall poor experience I would not recommend.
Nice AVR. All the bells and whistles I can handle!
Been looking at this since it came out. A little pricier than I normally go for. But I kept upgrading my AVR every few years to keep up with TV technology (720, 1080p, 3D, etc. So this time with a 4k TV upgrade, thought I would buy looking ahead. Since this one will "handle" up to 8K, figured I could spend "future upgrade money" now. Wi-fi, blue-tooth, Amazon Alexa features were nice. Lot's of connections (including legacy stuff). But am curious about one thing missing. Would probably only be for an old school user who liked to record music to his tape deck. I don't see any RCA audio "out" jacks, only in. So while I can play my Tape collection, I have to use older receiver (or some other work around) to make new tapes. And yes I know that is not a mainstream media anymore, but I still listen to tapes in my Yukon. Not a show stopper, but in case any other old timers at there, FYI. Oh, and get a cooling fan. This thing gets hot!
This receiver is stunning. The number of inputs, power, and channel capabilities completely suits my needs. The 4K passthrough works brilliantly, and the receiver does a great job powering my Polk Monitor 70 Series II speakers. The Audyssey setup was also flawless, and running it gave my system the tweaks it needed to sound powerful when I need it and provides enough power at low volumes to be very useful. Overall I would recommend this system to anyone looking for an upgrade we to their sound!
I previously owned Sony ES and Yamaha Aventage receivers, both of which failed after about 7 years. I was looking for an alternate brand that might last a little longer. At this price point I thought I was taking a slight step up, but at least a lateral move. Man did I end up in the disappointment camp... which I don't understand because this thing rated so highly in journalist reviews.
First, Audyssey - I don't get it. As much as people rave about this system, to me it arguably makes movies sound a bit better. But when it comes to music, take some peanut butter and spread it all over your speakers, then duct tape a pillow to the front of them, then toss them in your pool if you have one. This is what music sounds like played through Audyssey. And I set this up meticulously to the instructions, measuring distances and all. The problem is that I'm now having to turn the system on and off when I'm playing music or movies through the same source.
Surprisingly, most of the streaming music sounds quite good. I'll give it a firm improvement here over the Yamaha. Our zone 2 speakers are in our pool area which primarily are used with streaming and I really noticed an improvement in sound. However, for the life in me, I cannot get CD's to sound good. I have my list of songs I like to throw in, turn up, and just feel the deep notes coursing through my veins and I just can't get the Denon to deliver. If I had about triple the range to work with on the graphic EQ, maybe I could get it there. My wife, who could care less about how music sounds, even walked into the room one day and commented how crappy it sounded.
To conclude, I think its a good receiver for home theater, but the fact that it can't deliver on music just knocks it way down. In addition the app is also wanting - slow, clunky, disconnects often. And at this price point, they should add another $30 to the price of the stereo and include the darn Audyssey app instead of making people pay extra.
I'm still trying to find peace with this thing, but at this point it looks like I may be taking them up on their 60 day satisfaction guarantee.
I looked a long time before purchasing this unit. I have had durability issues with the other major brands so I decided to give Denon a try. I really like the features and the sound quality. Initially all went well but after a bit Zone 2 stopped working. My setup is fairly straightforward, 7.1 plus zone 2 speakers. As it is a fairly complex unit I spent hours trying different settings to no avail. Then mysteriously Zone two started working. It worked for about 3 days then stopped again. Thinking I just got a lemon I returned it to Denon and ordered a second one. Unfortunately shortly after setting up the new one ALL speakers quit working. After eventually getting through to Denon support and working through a factory reset it started to work. I reset up the system but unfortunately Zone two stopped again, just like the first unit. After many hours of testing and trying to work around the problem using the ALL Zone mode, it resumed working again. So at this moment it is working as advertised. Time will tell if it will continue. I think there may be a bug in their system. If it resurfaces again soon I will return this unit and search for another manufacturer. Aside from the Zone 2 issues this seems to be an excellent unit. Also note that Denon support could be better. Long wait times for phone support and email responses usually take 3 day or longer. The support answers form Denon have been to do a factory reset and start the setup over or to send it back for service.
I've been an audiophile for many years so I've seen a few receivers in my day, and the Denon 3700H is among the very best. I's recommend this to anyone. And for what it offers in terms of features and performance this is a steal. So, I do have 2 things that bother me a bout this receiver: 1 It runs hot, and I man hot to the touch. The solution for me was buying a cooling fan from ACInifity. Placed it on top of the receiver and problem solved. 2) The remote has no button to dim the display. You have to delve into the menu to do this. More pain and annoyance than anything else. Other than that no problems.
Great Receiver, but shop here for the awesome staff
World Wide has been around for ages and if you have shopped here you know why. Their staff is always willing to make sure that even if you ask for something specific, they will guide you to the best piece of equipment that you need. They know their products and never refuse to search around for the best complement to your system.
As for the Denon AVR-X3700H, it a great upgrade to my old 7.1/1080 unit. The Audyssey speaker calibration is a time saver and more than good enough for my non audiophile ears. The core reason why I chose this unit was that it is compatible with my 4k/120 projector. Content was ID'ed and routed down to the display with no issues.
The only negative is that I need to buy more speakers now because I want to see how much better this unit sounds when it's fully loaded with speakers.
