Product Information

World Wide Stereo Product Expert Ira Segall gives his thoughts on the Denon AVR-X6700H:

The Denon AVR-X6700H is a 11.2 channel home theater surround sound receiver. Denon is one of the oldest and most trusted manufacturers of high quality consumer audio equipment with a superb reputation.

What makes this receiver stand out?:

The receiver is able to provide sound from various sources to up to 3 zones of a home. It will allow for connections of various types of program source equipment, such as a turntable and a compact disc player, Television, Blu Ray Disc player, or even legacy equipment such as a VCR. It is capable of various types of remote control, and it can be connected to an internet network system. It can stream music in real time from a variety of internet music service providers plus it can receive Bluetooth as transmitted by a cell phone, computer or tablet.

What else do you need to know?

As one of the oldest manufacturers, Denon products last for a very long time. Consumers may choose this brand because of a history of ownership and therefore brand loyalty, or because of the brand’s reputation in the marketplace through reviews and various marketing.

To use the product, I would say the requirements are speakers, a television, various sorts of audio and video cables and playback sources such as a Blu Ray Disc Player, an internet video streamer or cable box.

7(or 5).1.6 Front Dolby speaker limitation
The 6700 gets a 1 star rating from me only because of an issue with the Dolby/Height/Top speakers. It can't be set up to do Front Dolby (upward firing speakers on top of the main Left/Right speakers) with Height or Top speakers in the Middle and Rear positions. If your speaker arrangement is this configuration, look at page 245 of the on line users manual. The top row is for 4 channels of Height with 2 channels of Dolby. It shows that the only options for the front speakers are Height or Top. For the middle it is only Dolby and the rear can be Height or Top. The best option for this speaker configuration is to set the height to 2 channels and Dolby to 4 channels. This allows the front to be Dolby, the middle to be height or top but forces the rear to be Dolby. The on screen menu (see photo, bottom of the screen) says that the front can be Dolby, but there is no option to select it, just Top or Height. For those not familiar with the terms, Dolby means the speaker if firing up and the sound bounces off the ceiling, Height typically means wall mounted and Top means it's mounted to the ceiling. I would have expected better from a $3100 AVR. I would think that the front could have the option of being Dolby with a firmware upgrade since other Height/Dolby configurations allow the front to be Dolby. Hopefully this review will catch the attention of Denon and they will fix this. When I went to the Denon web page to register it, the AVR X6700H is not listed as an option to select the model. (The AVC X6700 is listed, but that's an amplifier, not a receiver.) The 6700 has been out for 2 years now. PS: I'm an electrical engineer, I understand electronics.

Simply Amazing
I purchased this receiver to run my klipsch 7.2.4 atmos setup. The results are amazing! I haven’t had a single issue, setup was a breeze. The price is high but I am hoping to have this for a decade and it will be well worth it in the long run. I have had every major brand receiver and this one is the best.

It worked great for about 6 months
When it works, it's an amazing receiver. After 6 months of use though, this receiver starting having intermittent issues such as randomly muting for a few seconds, and sometimes it would also play audio that sounded super fuzzy until I powered it down and back up. I wanted to believe it was an issue with some other piece of equipment in my home theater so initially tried troubleshooting other components of my system. As time went on though, the muting started happening more frequently and I also started noticing my speakers crackling for a few seconds as well as the unit randomly powering off. I tried troubleshooting the issue more seriously. After a month going back and forth troubleshooting speaker cables, replacing them with lower gauge wires, replacing my HDMI cables, confirming the firmware was up to date, factory reseting the unit, testing different speakers, I'm confident that my unit is faulty. I wish I hadn't went through the trouble because now my warranty has expired less than a week ago.

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!!

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.
