EISA AV RECEIVER 2022-2023 Denon AVR-X1700H

An entry-level seven-channel AV receiver with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoding, Denon’s AVR-X1700H earns best-in-class status by virtue of its forward-thinking connectivity, foolproof usability and – of course – sound performance. This affordable receiver approaches multichannel mixes with relish, sounding energetic and dynamic, while its trio of HDMI 2.1 inputs, with support for advanced video formats from next-gen consoles, makes it a welcome addition to a gaming setup. Add in HEOS multiroom integration, Bluetooth/network streaming (including playback of hi-res files) and compatibility with voice assistants, and the AVR-X1700H becomes the very definition of value for money.
