The Denon AVR-X4700H* represents a product of high quality. First of all, the AVR already stands out with its unusually very simple front view. Unlike many devices, the phono input, HDMI port or any USB port are missing in the front area.
However, this is not the whole truth. In fact, these are cleverly hidden behind an optical bezel below the display. This is removable and can turn the receiver into a classy object in the home theater center when not in use.
The Denon AVR-X4700H features the most popular audio formats. These include Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, High Resolution Audio, and Auro-3D. Auro-3D is immersive audio format in 3D.
This immersive element suggests a feeling of reality to the user, so that he thinks he is in the middle of the action when he is washed around by the sound wave.
The receiver with 9.2 surround sound is capable of 9 speakers and two subwoofers, with each channel having an output power of 200 watts. In this context, the question may possibly arise whether so many speakers can be configured in the same way.
However, the AV receiver can ensure an even configuration. The range of audio qualifications is rounded off by the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room acoustic correction system.
With its help, an adequate sound image is generated. By the way, two points in particular are decisive for this. Firstly, the performance of an automatic calibration and secondly, the collection of several measurement points.
Connectivity – connection and interfaces
The device has common connectivity technologies to which LAN, WLAN, USB, Bluetooth and HDMI belong. The high definition interface is compatible with HDCP 2.2. The HDMI ports stand for themselves.
With one port in the front and seven ports in the rear, this is matched by 3 HDMI outputs. The integrated HEOS integration can be operated flexibly via app. In addition, Apple AirPlay support is also given alongside Spotify Connect.
Available video formats
The Denon AVR-X4700H’s range of video formats is characterized by compatibility with Dolby Vision, for example. Accordingly, picture resolution in 4K Ultra HD, High Dynamic Range and Hybrid Log Gamma are part of the program. Another feature is eARC. This stands for enhanced Audio Return Channel.
