Some irritating things for 3 Grand
HDMI bug, then they send you a box that needs it own power, then it will produce 8K. I switched from a well known competitor (Y) for the money I don't see the value. This unit from heat pops and clicks ALL the time. Not only distracting but disconcerting, nothing to do about it has done this since day one. The support staff says send it in for someone to look it over. So I need to tear apart my system for weeks while technically the product is functioning? Waste of time, I asked for a replacement. Of course that won't happen. Stay away, this is an overpriced product. There are cheaper competitors with similar features. Don't rely on someone who reviews the product in their first week. Those reviews are useless. Now comes the obligatory response from Denon marketing telling how sorry they are. Or more likely won't even post my review. If Denon wants to make good send me a replacement and I will gladly send that goofy piece of hardware for 8K and the receiver back for a product that doesn't require some contraption to work.

Quality Issues
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.

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!
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
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.

Actually about an Older Denon Receiver
Please bear with me a moment while I give Denon cudos for how they make their receivers. I purchased the AVR-X4300H as soon as it came out. I was completely satisfied with that receiver as Denon was (and is just blowing the competition out of the water. Great awesome sound and video enhancements as well. I have gotten into home theater and Denon is the perfect product to use. As I was beginning to expand my setup, I became impatient waiting for the AVR-X6500H I think if I recall correctly, so I went and purchased an Emotiva XPA Gen3 3 channel amplifier, which gave me additional channels to use with more output, and the results were amazing! And they still are! I have DolbyVision and Dolby Atmos and a roomful of Klipsch speakers that perform so well with a Denon AVR. I realize I'm missing a few updates (such as e Arc) but the overall performance of this Denon receiver is so good, so good that I have delayed upgrading to the 6700. I imagine the 6700 will be my target AVR at some point in the future, but right now, today, even though I have watched Denon update their AVRs three times since my purchase, I just can't justify replacing my current setup, which when you think about it, is giving the highest rating to Denon that is possible. And by the way, I have this AVR fully loaded, with every HDMI slot full with 2 4K DVD players, a Roku Ultra 4K, an Amazon 4K, an Nvidia 4K, and an Apple 4K. It gets daily use and it has never missed a beat!

Receiver Denon AVC-X6700H - Sound bug
I use a Denon AVC-X6700H receiver. I am generally satisfied. However, there is a bug with a sound (same as described by BaronBob. I have a Panasonic TX-65JZ2000E TV (from 2021) connected to an HDMI audioquest pearl 48 cable via eARC. When watching NETFLIX, the sound is randomly off for a 10-15 sec and then comes back. Please help with this issue.

Is this a 2020?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2020
  Thanks for your inquiry. The AVR-X6700H is a current, 2020 model.
I am only running a 5.1 system but would like a receiver that is somewhat future proof. I currently have a Denon 4810, what differences will I notice? Is this complete overkill?
LoveMyFocals on Nov 20, 2021
  Thanks for your question. Overkill? Not really considering its technology upgrades. Comparing the 2 models in 5.1 wouldnt reveal much but consider 8K resolution, HDMI/ARC & eARC, Atmos and DTSX height capability, HDR10+, IMAX capability, new DSP, and HEOS, to mention only a few, are significant, tangible, technical upgrades.
Are the items you have stock of the AVR-x6700h of the NEW Glitch free production runs?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. Current available inventory of Denon AVR models are all new production units free of HDMI 4K 120 glitch.
My current Denon x6500 H randomly turns on after it has been shut off (sometimes even in the middle of the night). Does the x6700 have the same problem?
A shopper on May 31, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. We are not aware of intermittent turn on from standby in either model. Denon tech support may be able to provide an answer, 800-497-8921.
