”Formidable in all the right ways, Denon's AVC-X4700H is both a technical tour de force and a spine-tingling sonic performer.” ’Home Cinema Choice’ – Best Buy.

9-channel flexibility

With 9.2 channels of generous power, the AVC-X4700H opens up a whole new range of surround sound and multi-room options. Choose between 7.2.2 or 5.2.4 Dolby Atmos speaker configurations with two or four ceiling speakers. Alternatively, stick with 5.2.2 and power a second pair of speakers in another room or bi-amp your main pair of speakers. As your system grows, so the capability of this Denon AVC grows with it.

Optional 11-channel sound for full immersion
Add an extra stereo power amp and the Denon lets you configure four ceiling or Atmos-enabled speakers as well as full 7-channel surround sound. Alternatively, use two Atmos speakers and enjoy a broad soundstage with 'front wide speakers' forming a 9.2.2 system. If you don't fancy a Dolby Atmos specific system but want the most immersive sound possible, go for an 11.2 configuration. This offers 7.2 sound with the addition of front width and front height speakers.

Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, IMAX Enhanced and Auro-3D
Supporting four, core 3D sound formats, the AVC-X4700 has you fully covered. Classic Dolby Atmos is complimented by Atmos Height Virtualisation Technology for 3D sound without all the speakers. DTS:X and Virtual:X offer the same versatility. IMAX Enhanced takes DTS recordings to the highest cinematic standards. Auro-3D, meanwhile, gives you the intensity of immersive, 3D sound, from all formats – including TV, gaming and music – without the need for Dolby or DTS encoding.

Ready for 8K
Featuring 8K compliant HDMI sockets, this premium Denon AVC is ready for the next generation of TV. Not only does the amp pass through 8K/60Hz signals, but it also upscales HDMI signals to the 8K standard, too – helping you make the most of your 8K TV with 4K UHD media. If you’ve not yet made the jump to 8K TV, the sockets also handle up to 4K/120Hz signals, for the highest quality pass through and upscaling with 4K UHD.

Supports Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and Dynamic HDR
As well as supporting 8K, the AVC-X4700H also supports a wide range of High Dynamic Range video formats. These include Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG. It also supports HDR10+, which enhances picture realism by sending dynamic Meta data to your TV, as well as Dynamic HDR. In short, whatever the format used by the film, game or stream, the Denon supports it.

Serious about gaming
The latest HDMI support also marks a big improvement in gaming. 4K/120Hz and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) support maximise resolution and clarity. Quick Frame Transport (QFT) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) help eliminate lag and frame tearing, giving you a smoother, more responsive gaming experience.

Now works with all the voice assistants
The AVC-X4700 adds Siri and Google Assistant to Alexa, making it more widely compatible with voice assistants than before. For Alexa or Google Assistant control, simply download the HEOS app. Pair your Echo device if you’re using Alexa and you’re good to go. For control via Siri, simply link the amp via Apple AirPlay 2 and enjoy voice interaction and AirPlay 2 multi-room support.

The trickle-down effect bestows the AVC-X4700 with powerful processing
Inherited from the former AVC-X8500H flagship AVC, the AVC-X4700H now has the same Dual SHARC+ core DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for immense processing power. Denon's AL32 Processing provides ultra-high resolution digital audio filtering and precision tailoring of the main channels to give pinpoint precision and the most natural sound possible. Finally, AKM 32-bit DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor) give this AV amp reference levels of detail and Hi-Res audio support.

Advanced multi-room functionality and custom install ready
The AVC-X4700H has no fewer than three HDMI outputs with an independent zone 2. This means you can run audio and video to another screen, in another room independently from the twin, main outputs. IP control capability for major third-party control devices, as well as Control4 SDPP (Simple Device Detection Protocol) certification plus twin DC triggers make this AV amp ideal for more complex home installations.

HEOS built-in - for the finest multi-room audio
HEOS multi-room music systems connect together by dual-band Wi-Fi, making them easy to set up with your existing home network. Up to 32 HEOS units can be set up at one time, ensuring even the largest of homes are covered for multi-room music. With HEOS already built-in, the AVC-X4700H is ready to go as a single 'zone' without any further adaptors.

Control it all with the HEOS app
Once you've set up your HEOS speaker system, you can stream music effortlessly via the dedicated HEOS app. Available for Apple iOS and Android, the app not only lets you stream your stored music but also Internet radio services and popular streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal, Napster and Deezer.

Bluetooth, AirPlay 2, and built-in wi-fi for the complete networking experience
With both Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 connectivity it's easy to connect all your smartphones, tablets and compatible lap/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The AVC-X4700H also comes with wi-fi and Internet radio. Simply connect to your home network via Ethernet or wi-fi and access thousands of Internet radio sites via vTuner as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect (requires Spotify Premium account). A Bluetooth headphone output is now also standard.

Audyssey MultEQ XT32 for simple room set-up
Featuring Audyssey's high-end MultEQ XT32 technology, the AVC-X4700H adapts itself to your room's acoustics. The XT32 version of this automatic measuring and set-up device features include Audyssey Dynamic Volume, Dynamic EQ, LFC and SubEQ HT for total control. If you want to take this even further, purchase the MultEQ Editor App (at additional cost) and you've access to advanced user settings.

Quick Selects for the perfect sound – instantly
With such user flexibility, getting the perfect sound can be a complex business. For this reason, Denon has fitted the AVC-X4700H with four Quick Select audio presets. Take your time in setting the ideal sound balance for your TV, Blu-ray, games console and music source and recall them at the touch of a button for the ideal sound, instantly.

Bring all your home entertainment to life, with the Denon AVC-X4700H.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product with all the latest features Boiught to replace an aging Onkyo which while a great amp, was starting to show its age with a lack of compatibility with the newer TV and accessories I now have. The Denon works with everything and passes through quickly when not activated. When being used with my firestick, BluRay and Freesat, it upscales beautifully and the sound is much more balanced than my Onk giving a punchy bass when required but renders vocals through the centre channel much more effectively. Overall, very happy. They won't be around much longer aws the 4800 whill be out soon at nearly £1000 more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great list of features and excellent connectivity Purchased a couple of weeks ago and have only just been able to setup due to decorating and adding atmosphere speakers. First thing that struck me was the weight and sheer size of the receiver it’s heavy and larger than my old Onkyo requiring surgery to my av cabinet to fit mental notes folk’s remember to add the dimensions of banana plugs and other connections hdmi coax etc when measuring the space your going to locate this beast. Set up was a breeze the onboard setup menu guides you through it even telling you you have connected the wrong way amazing technology has come along way since I last purchased a AV receiver, I won’t bore you with finer details of setup as it’s a joy and I guess if you’re looking at this you will have done your homework already. The features are fantastic to many to list here so read the features section on the richer sound website, moving onto the sound amazing is definitely worth the upgrade my go to demo piece is the beach landing scene from Saving private Ryan from sky q recording , the Atmos score is amazing I thought my Onkyo was good but the detail that has suddenly appeared since upgrading to the Denon is mind blowing rumbles in the air rockets mortars machine guns that I haven’t heard before it’s like something new appears each time I listen to it I’m blown away with the sound and features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amplifier! I bought this based on other reviews I've seen. Measurements of the amp show really good DAC quality. Audysee worked really well in my living room. The amp has plenty of power in my setup which is 5.1, it goes very loud comfortably. Very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Total upgrade. Exceptional bit of kit! Richer sounds once again looked after my needs without pomp and circumstance, they just sold great kit and delivered it promptly! Thank you for an excellent service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denon AVC-X4700 Review Really impressed with the Denon AVC-X4700H. Been in the process of upgrading my system from entry level to mid-range and this was the final piece in the jigsaw. Audyssey XT32 room correction on this unit makes an incredible difference to the sound, especially in an untreated room. The Audyssey app also allows you to customise the sound by adjusting the frequency curve, although this is a bit fiddly on a mobile. The Denon has brought new life to my Monitor Audio Silver 6g speakers - they now have a much fuller sound and sound bigger somehow. The ability to EQ the sub has also made an enormous difference - some like to goose the bass, but this has made me appreciate a more balanced sound. Derek at the Manchester branch was helpful in finding me a deal when the end of line Marantz SR6015 was out of stock. Was tempted by the new Marantz Cinema 50, which has a cool feature with its 4 sub outs allowing you to assign which low frequencies from which speaker(s) get sent to each sub; but I'm not likely to be using 4 subs any time soon. Not tried it with Atmos/DTS:X yet, another 4 speakers will be my next purchase very soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service Had to return a faulty AVC-3800H (which was confirmed as this model works fine). The lads at the York branch helped me with the swap and most helpful. That's why i keep using them/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, solid amplifier. I originally bought the new 2800h which developed a bluetooth fault but to be honest I was bit unimpressed with the sound compared to my 6 year old Pioneer. I swapped out for 4700h - yes it's older, more expensive but overall sound quality and power is far superior. GUI is dated but once setup you don't really use. Appreciate this model will be replaced soon but i wont need those extra features and the cost will be a lot higher. Typical excellent Richersounds advice, service and delivery - greatly appreciated and I am very happy with my purchase. Over to speaker upgrades now...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound and a big upgrade! My friend bought one of these a couple of months ago and I popped over to have a listen for myself. I was impressed by the much richer bass and the clarity of high frequency sound. I have a 5.1 setup with big floorstander speakers and my old receiver didn't seem to have enough power to drive all the speakers efficiently. The Denon doesn't struggle at all with my speaker setup, and it's almost as though I have a completely new set of speakers to with the AVC-X4700, there is a more focussed and detailed sound to music with this piece of kit. The AVC-X4700 literally sucks all the musical detail out of whatever music source you have and hands it over to you effortlessly. A real worthwhile upgrade!
