Expert review by : Ty Pendlebury (

Denon AVR-1707


The Denon AVR-1707 is an excellent-sounding receiver for the price, but if you're looking for features it's worth paying a little extra.

Excellent sound ; Up/down conversion of video ; Bi-ampable ; Automated set-up ; Ability to choose video and audio source independently

Can sound lacklustre at high volumes ; No OSD ; Poor remote

If you don't want perpetual party volumes, however, the news is a lot rosier -- this is an excellent amplifier. Some amps give an overly midrange-heavy performance that sounds great with dialogue but makes music sound like it's playing in a tunnel. But...

Just set mine up last night. Need to add other speakers to get the full capability of all features but so far, really nice! Shop around, got mine for less than $230 including shipping.

Loads of inputs, backside nicely organized, looks good

Need special XM to take advantage of XM inut. My old Delphi XM goes into aux channel instead

Denon AVR1707


Easy auto set-up,sound quality for movies & music an improvement on previous receiver,comprehensive features give ability to further improve listening.

Remote control seems overly complicated,buttons on both sides mean that if not handled carefully button on opposite side may function. Otherwise nothing bad.
