Premium Audio Technologies for Superb Surround Sound
Fully compatible with current HD audio formats, the Denon AVR-1712 7.1-Channel A/V Receiver provides powerful, theater-quality surround sound. It ensures maximum audio performance with multiple technologies:

  • Equal Power Amp Design: Each of the AVR-1712's seven 90-watt* channels is powered by its own discrete circuit. This allows the receiver to reproduce original sound more faithfully than conventional models, which use integrated circuits.
  • High-Definition Audio Support: The AVR-1712 features support for Blu-ray high-definition audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. These formats play back sound with exceptional fidelity, providing a more realistic listening experience.
  • Dolby Pro Logic IIz: Providing two additional height channels, this feature adds a vertical dimension to the soundstage, providing more immersive surround sound (with an optional, external amplifier).
  • Audyssey MultEQ Support: Audyssey technology helps create an optimal acoustic profile for your home theater. Using a microphone, Audyssey MultEQ measures sound levels and adjusts speaker configuration accordingly, making setup fast and easy.
Full HD Support
With six HDMI inputs, the AVR-1712 allows you to route multiple high-definition devices--like game consoles and Blu-ray players--to your TV. It also allows you to connect all of your devices to your TV with a single HDMI cable, reducing cable clutter.

Vivid 3D Visuals with HDMI v1.4a
The AVR-1712 comes equipped with HDMI v1.4a, allowing you to make the most of several premium video features:

  • 3D Pass-Through: With the advent of 3D media, it is important to own a receiver that recognizes 3D video signals. The AVR-1712 is able to pass through 3D signals from your Blu-ray player, ensuring that the 3D effect doesn't get lost in translation. It also recognizes signals from 3D television broadcasts.
  • Audio Return Channel: HDMI v1.4a also features Audio Return Channel functionality, which allows for audio content from your display to be played back through the AVR-1712 via the single HDMI cable that goes from the receiver to the display. This eliminates the need for separate audio and video cables running from your TV to the receiver.
  • Deep Color and x.v.Color Support: The AVR-1712 also supports Deep Color and x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture.
Stereo Mini Jack and iPod Connectivity
With the front-side stereo mini jack, the AVR-1712 supports audio playback from any portable audio player. This receiver can also be used with the Denon Networked Control Dock (sold separately) for network streaming or docking your iPod/iPhone. A compressed audio restorer guarantees that standard MP3 playback is crisp and clear.

GUI Overlay and Remote Control for Simple Operation
With its programmable functions and intuitive button layout, the AVR-1712 is designed for ease of use. The front panel is smartly organized, featuring clearly labeled buttons and onboard controls for volume and source. In addition, its on-screen display provides quick information about your system's settings.

The AVR-1712's pre-memory remote control with Glo-Key and on-screen programming is easy to setup and use, thus giving you more flexibility in controlling your home theater.

I first tried the Denon AVR-1912. I did not like the AVR-1912's internet features (Airplay etc.). However, I did like the way it sounded. So, I exchanged for a Denon AVR-1712 when they started shipping. It is cheaper than an AVR-1912 but has identical audio specs. When I got it, I compared 2 different speaker setups; 7.1 front-height vs. bi-amp front speakers with 5.1 surround. In my opinion, I got much better overall sound with the bi-amp setup on my floor-standing front speakers (5.1) than using them not bi-amped but with another pair of front-height (7.1) speakers. My conclusion was that a good reason to buy a 7.1 receiver instead of a 5.1 receiver is so you can bi-amp a set of speakers that has bi-amp capability. If I ever want to add internet stuff, I will use either a Roku box or a new HDTV with internet built in. Very happy with the sound, the radio, and being "future-proofed" with lots of HDMI inputs.

If this receiver was over $700, I would have given it 4 stars because it's only weakness is that it wouldn't have enough power to blast-out a large room -- but I have it in a small home-theater so it's no problem and 5 stars for my needs. I've owned a Pioneer, Sony, Onkyo and now a Denon low-end receiver. The Pioneer I had was back in college, but I remember it favorably. The Sony had plenty of oomph, not much acuracy and died after 6 or 7 years. The Onkyo at 75 watts is OK now that I have it hooked up to a Polk soundbar along with a Polk sub. The Dennon beats them all. If you're looking to pay less than $500 and you like hearing more detail in your movies and music than you've ever heard in the past with other low-end systems, buy this receiver. For most listening needs at normally loud to not window-shattering volumes, you'll be blown away by this receiver. Do not waste time looking around for weeks like I did. If you have good speakers it will make them sound great and if you have bad speakers it will make them sound good. My 25 year old Polk Bookshelf speakers, Polk CS10 Center and Polk PSW505 Sub and 4 el-cheapo Sony surrounds sound like high-end home theater speakers. BTW, setup was very easy once all the wiring was done. My only real complaint is that their most comprehensive manual is put on a CD so I had to print out 104 pages on my laser printer. Also, I bought this through Electronics Expo via Amazon and highly recommend both. Electronics Expo gave me a free upgrade to this receiver after the lower-powered Dennon I ordered was out-of-stock. I will definitely look to order through Electronics Expo again.

I purchased this receiver after my old Yamaha finally died and all I can say is wow! I was willing to spend up to $1.2k for a receiver but found this one on sale even cheaper that the $399 list price (which it is worth every penny of that) and had to jump on it. And I'm glad I did. This reasonably priced receiver handles the 5 HDMI inputs that I have and makes my home theatre room super simple to use (my wife is happy about that) while making it sound fantastic. Most of my viewing is of media with 5.1 sound but the extended surround function is able to utilize my extra speakers perfectly when not playing 7.1.

What I like most is I no longer have to constantly adjust the sound to the movie I am watching. I used to have to turn the sound up or down multiple times during a movie to adjust to action scenes or conversation. Not any more, this system keeps the movie's background music/noises and conversation balanced perfectly. My friend has a $2k receiver and it has the same problem that you have to adjust the sound constantly, maybe he adjusted it wrong. All I know is this system did it for me and perfectly with the microphone you set up at the listening positions and it adjusted the sound for me.

The only con I have is that the remote can be confusing until the household members remember how I had to set it up. For example, I set up the Game 2 assignment to correspond to my philips dvd/flash drive upconverter. But that isn't really Denon's fault as they tried to set up as many common buttons as possible. I just purchased a logitech smart remote and that should simplify things for them once I get it programmed.

Pros: Loaded with lots of features and it processes sound real great. Even my old box home theater speakers sounded much better when hooked to this thing. I like especially the ability to bi-amp. I have hooked my Klipsch VF-36's tower tweeters to the 'surround back' and the woofers to the 'front', and the sound quality is noticeably improved [though admittedly this is not scientific - could be all in my head]. I also got it on a special from Vann's at 25% off the going price of four Benjamins, shipped.
Cons; the most annoying feature is the remote - truly difficult to figure out. It doesn't help that instructions are on a cd rom manual, which itself is rather tough to follow. I still can't get the damn thing to communicate with my TV or cable box [both relatively new]. I know saving money is the in thing for companies, but a $0.99 instructions book shouldn't kill profits. On screen menus also require getting used to.
Hint: Do not do the sound test (speaker set up) at night. It is really loud.
