Denon AVR-X2700H (2020 model)

Crutchfield customer from Arnold, MD on 2/18/2021

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

So far so good. I was replacing an old pioneer system that died after 10 years. Setup was easy & sound is great. I was a bit disappointed that at this level a component video source does not get translated to HDMI and a separate component video cable is required to be run to the TV ( I knew this before purchase based on the description but my 10 year old pioneer did this). Still need to set up my outdoor zone 2 once I build my deck this spring.

Up to date

Crutchfield customer from Orlando, FL on 2/4/2021

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

New equipment is always nice especially if your replacing a 20 year old receiver. (the old receiver had S-Video hookups, anyone remember them?). The hook up was pretty painless, especially with the HDMI cable going from the receiver to ARC input of the TV. In the old days I would have had to run an audio cable, a video cable and another cable to connect the two components. Much easier this way. The rest of the setup was just as easy with On-Screen Setup Assistant. Especially liked the sound calibration microphone which makes speaker adjustment setup quick and easy. Now I can connect Bluetooth devices and using HEOS I have access to my music apps. I'm set for the nest 20 years fingers crossed.

A very solid multi function AVR. Replace an older Interga that was dying. Great value vs the Intrga with super performance.

Pros: Easy to set-up and integrate with Control 4

Cons: None so far.

Good sound with a learning curve

Crutchfield customer from Williams, OR on 11/29/2020

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The sound is usually great, although some sources are not. It takes a bit of learning to get to the best sound for each input. So, there is some trial and error to get the most out of it. Didn't realize that this receiver does not upgrade the input, so a composite in requires a composite out. It doesn't change the composite in to HDMI out. Also didn't realize that to use zone 2 you sacrifice the 2 back speakers. Otherwise, I really like the performance and the more I learn about the receiver the more I like it.

Good - could be great with better software

Adam from FRAMINGHAM, MA on 11/17/2020

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This receiver is glitchy at times. Every couple days it will suddenly turn off in the middle of listening to a record, or randomly turn itself on when nobody is near the remote. For the first week when I got my xbox series x I had to bypass the receiver to play in 4k. I'd try going through the receiver again every few days, and eventually it worked fine even though I never changed anything. I'm on the latest firmware for all my devices. Denon support hasn't picked up the phone during their posted office hours or replied to my email. That being said, when it's working I really like it. Audio quality is good to my ears, as is the 4k video quality.

Pros: audio & video quality

Cons: glitchy firmware

Great home theater receiver at a mid-range price point

Crutchfield customer from Golden, CO on 11/10/2020

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this receiver after researching options off and on for a couple months. I've had it set up for a couple weeks now and I'm very happy with it so far. I have a relatively small family area and didn't need a super powerful receiver, and I'm not an extreme audiophile so didn't crave a really high end system. I did want a receiver that would support building out a surround sound system, and one that would integrate with my home media server as well as the various music services I use. So far things are working great. Setup was super easy. I took my time working through the process and had everything set up over the course of a couple hours. The calibration device is pretty cool and seems to have done a good job. I can now play music from my media server, through Apple Airplay, and through Amazon Music and Pandora. I've mostly used the receiver for music and football so far, using two Polk Audio RTi A7 speakers. The sound is great. I have a sub-woofer on the way and will test out the first step toward a better home theater setup this weekend. There is only one thing I've encountered so far that I would change. I most frequently have the cable TV set top box set as the input to the receiver, with the picture passed through to the TV. When I turn on the Apple TV device to watch shows there it would be nice if the receiver auto-switched the device to the just activated device. Not a big deal, and maybe it can be dealt with. Bottom line, thumbs up to this re

The Engine That Powers It All

John from Riverside, CA on 9/28/2020

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this receiver because it has features that will keep it up to date for years to come (8K, 2.1 HDMI, 7.2). It also has plenty of outputs to expand your system later if you only have a 5.1 setup like myself. I plan on utilizing the the dual zone capabilities with the other 2 channels and second video output in the near future. Out of the box, I wasn't that impressed with how everything sounded but that all changed after I used the included Audyssey speaker calibration. The sound blew me away. Currently I am running 5 Polk RC80i's and a Cambridge Minx X301 subwoofer. Movies and music sound amazing! Stream an Atmos demo after you have it all dialed in and get the full effect. The eARC has also worked great for me. I have it paired with an LG GX TV. I only ran one HDMI cable to the TV as I planned on using the receiver for switching sources. The receiver flawlessly switches between PS4, satellite TV, and streaming apps without using the Denon remote. I'm able to use volume and on/off controls for the receiver just using the LG remote. It may not work as well as a high end remote but I'm quite happy with eARC functionality so far. Overall, I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I highly recommend this receiver, especially if you're looking for something that supports 8K or 4K/120Hz for the next round of gaming consoles.

Pros: Audyssey speaker calibration Great sound Easy setup

Cons: None so far

Great All Around

Crutchfield customer from Long Beach, NY on 9/24/2020

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Spoke with Sam on Sept 19 as my 10 year old Onkyo was giving me problems and so wanted some feedback on the Denon AVR-X2700H. Sam was knowledgable and thorough, being familiar with my old unit and very familiar with the Denon being able to explain both similarities and differences between the two. No sales pitch whatsoever. As a result of his patience and knowledge I pulled the trigger on the Denon. It was delivered yesterday 9/23. Set up was easy (with a little help from Jase at Tech support) and I could not be happier with the sound and performance. Compared to my old unit, great sound for movies and tv, and even better sound for music, both streaming and my vinyl collection. Was surprised at how easy set up was with setup assistant even the Audyssey part which I initially was a little tentative about. Both my wife and I could not be happier with the purchase and the excellent customer service Crutchfield provides.

Pros: Ease of setup and use great sound and power

Cons: None as of yet and don't anticipate any

Very good receiver with additions on it to keep your receiver up to date in the years to come with 8k. I upgraded to this receiver from a Harmon Kardon avr 254 that didn't go well with my new 4K tv but oh does the Denon do it and with ease too on the setup and the Audyssey speaker calibration that made the sound amazing in my living room for my music, games and movies......I highly recommend this receiver, even though I came looking for a Yamaha, this one is perfect and happy I decided on this instead.

Pros: Audyssey speaker calibration Great 4K video and game upscale processing Temperature reader on front display HEOS for music streaming

Cons: Can't think of any

Powerful AV receiver with 7.1 surround sound. I particularly like the Heos mobile app that makes choosing and playing music in multiple rooms just a few click on your phone.

Pros: Mobile app, powerful 7.1 channels, and Crutchfield technical support is incredible!

Cons: I am experiencing an odd problem that causes the sound to go out when I play at low volumes. Crutchfield technical support helped me adjust the settings on the speakers to mitigate the problem.

Great little AV receiver. Note the dimensions are unusual -- standard 17" width but shorter than usual depth. This may be great for you, if you have a small cabinet, for example. Or it may not be great, if you are stacking components. Just be aware of it and measure twice, order once!

I upgraded from a 20 year old Onkyo and what a nice difference! I have a small media room (about 10x10) with wall mount speakers in front and surrounds overhead in the rear and the Denon drives them easily without distortion. The hookup and room compensation was painless.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY

Stephen from Austin, TX on 8/17/2020

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

THE GOOD: All inputs work great without handshake problems. Xbox One, Sony UBP-X700 4K blu ray player, Sony X900H TV, Wi U, Wi Switch. No distortion of video and fantastic surround sound. The HDMI passthrough switching works great with the unit in standby mode. The internet radio picks up local stations that I normally have trouble receiving with an antenna. I have the X2700H set up with some Sony SS-SCE dolby atmos speakers pointing to the ceiling. The atmos height sound is subtle but there. I tried the system without the atmos speakers using only the dolby virtual height function and got pretty close to the same immersive sound. Close enough to ponder returning the Sony speakers. THE BAD: The remote is feather weight and flimsy. The manual reports function within 30 degrees radius from center on each side. It is more like 15 degrees. My biggest disappointment is this X series Denon receiver does not come with a blue tooth remote. Denon includes a paper rocket ship for the microphone to set up Audessy. The cost of that large packaging and the fact Denon has online manuals now could have been used help put blue tooth in the remote. THE UGLY: I also expected a lot more concerning the GUI with the X series. I was disappointed with the onscreen interface. It looks archaic for year 2020 and not user friendly. Most settings take a double click to get into and change and a double click to get out after the change. Yuck!

Pros: Great sound with lots of HDMI inputs and no handshake problems.

Cons: GUI needs updating. NO blue tooth remote
