I was able to grab this while it was in stock after debating on this or the Marantz model. After much research and chat with the extremely knowledgeable Crutchfield reps I decided on the Denon as I am almost exclusively using it to watch movies as opposed to listening to music. I upgraded from an older Denon 5.1 system that is almost 8 years ago. Now I have Dolby Atmos 5.1.4 and my lord coupled with my LG OLED TV Dolby Vision/Atmos is amazing! FYI this supports HDMI 2.1 as does my LG TV, that was a main reason for getting this model/brand over others as well. Setup was a total breeze, it walked me through the Dolby Atmos setup of the speakers, was up and running in 30min.

My previous Receiver was an Denon 4308CI. Only natural to upgrade to this model. I appreciate Denons attention to detail, interface and overall quality
Pros: Capabilities, Performance, Quality

I upgraded from a Yamaha A2010 to the Denon AVR-X6700H for my 5.1 channel home theater. I'm looking at eventually upgrading to a 4K TV, but only have an old 1080p TV now. The Setup Assistant was mostly intuitive, and guided me through the automated calibrations. A pair of cardboard cutouts that together create a "rocket ship" out of cardboard to hold the calibration microphone in listening positions. The makeshift platform worked well. The Setup Assistant did, however, freeze completely during the initial setup, requiring a power cycle to resume configuration. Compared to the Yamaha, the sound is leaner but more enveloping. I experience more sound sent to the surround speakers (which I like), and good integration between the three front speakers. The Yamaha has a fuller, richer sound. Both sound good, just different but equally reasonable interpretations. The Denon I perfer for movies than the Yamaha, while I would give the musical edge to the Yamaha (although the Denon works well for music, too). So overall, it has great sound and is reasonably well configurable. I have just a couple minor quibbles with the on-screen setup, and have had some difficulty getting Roon to work with this receiver (which is advertised as Roon-compatible.) Still, the Denon AVR-X6700H represents close to 5-star performance. A few tweaks in managing the unit's on-screen configuration and tighter integration with other devices and services would pus
Pros: 1) Good, enveloping theater sound 2) Support for virtually every audio and video format available today 3) Compact design for a near-top-of-the-line unit, which would be helpful in confined spaces. 4) Support for 4K and 8K video
Cons: 1) Setup didn't optimally configure the gain for my subwoofer, requiring manual adjustment. 2) In the setup, "Source Rename" and "Input Assign" should really be on the same screen. The division represents a less-obvious way of assigning the various inputs, although Input Assign has one of the best interfaces I've seen on a home theater receiver. It just falls slightly short of perfect by being disconnected with the source renaming. 3) Integration with Roon server is not straightforward

A lot of features, a lot of customizability compared to my previous Sony and Onkyo.
