Design

The design of the Denon AVR-X4700H is fairly nice. It’s sleek and comes in black. It’s small but compact so it can sit nicely on your rack. The only downside is the weight, weighing in at 18 pounds so it would be best to have help putting this receiver on your rack but don’t worry, you’ll get used to taking care of it yourself.

Features

Setup

Setup of the Denon AVR-X4700H was a simple process. All I had to do was connect speaker wire from the speakers to the receiver and plug in all other wires. The Denon AVR-X4700H has an HDMI input, which is what we use for our inputs. It also has a variety of Digital Inputs, such as Optical and Coaxial, for people who still have Analog/Digital devices that they want to run through the system.
