Nice looking AVRs... :)
Denon has certainly focused on having the required marketing features and tech points in their 3700 & 6700....
Now the race is on between Denon and Yamaha for #1 AVR market leadership..
We await the release of the competing Yamaha AVRs.. :rolleyes:

Just my $0.02... ;)

205W per channel? Seems like a BS power rating.
And they say 180W for the X3700H. That certainly seems pretty odd, since the flagship X8500H is 150W.

Probably done @ 6 Ohm, 1 kHz, 10%THD, 1ch Driven.
If Denon has all those awesome features why do they need to hype some BS power output spec.. :rolleyes:

Just my $0.02... ;)

I think Gene Della Salla's head will explode when he sees that power rating.
Denon presently uses the "6 Ohms, 10% THD @1kHz, 1 channel driven" disclosure for all of their AVRs including the top-of-line 8500..

Just my $0.02... ;)

good find @fenster3000. I thought JD said in the Denon forum that nothing was being replaced in 2020 except the x6500? I assume this will be a 2021 release?
x4700 & x6700 were expected for this year.

What would differentiate the X4700H from the X3700H? The X3500H is 7 channel and the X4500H is 9 channel. But they made the X3600H 9 channel which would explain the non existent X4600H.

From dfa973's comparison, these are what the 4500 has that the 3600 does not:

- a little power on the amps;
- the ability to apply DTS Neural:X upmixer on any source when the input signal is Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD or Dolby Atmos *2);
- the Center Spread feature of Dolby Surround upmixer *2);
- the Auro-3D immersive format decoder;
- the Auro-Matic upmixer;
- the metal front panel *6);
- the metal door *6);
- the dual-row display with signal channel indicators *6);
- the ability to control other devices with the IR remote control unit - using preset codes *4);
- the third audio Zone - ZONE3;
- Denon Link HD;
- the second trigger;
- D.D.S.C.-HD with AL32 Processing Multi-channel *3);
- the "Bass Sync" feature;
- the ability to set the component video output connector to video ZONE2 - limited to MAIN ZONE;
- the "2ch Playback" feature - the ability to set custom calibration for speaker size, SW On/Off, SW Mode, Crossover, FL+FR distances and levels when playing 2ch sources;

Though I agree. It wouldn't surprise me if they dropped the 4xxx series, or just continued to release them in different years.

But those are different model years so the X4500H is selling for less than what it was released at. If there was an X4600H it would be a hard sell to ask for more money for just those features alone.

Now if we get a 15 channel X8800H and the X6800H bumps up to 13 channels then I could see a X4800H taking over at 11 channels. Hopefully that year they also add at least one more 8K port.

Seems unlikely they would drop the power in the newer models? Perhaps it is 6 ohm, 1 kHz, 0.7% 2ch Drive?

X3600
105W (8 ohm, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.05% 2ch Drive)
135W (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 0.7% 2ch Drive)
215W (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 10% 1ch Drive)

X3700
180W ?

X6500
140W (8 ohm, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.05% 2ch Drive)
175W (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 0.7% 2ch Drive)
250W (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 10% 1ch Drive)

X6700
205W ?

No idea.. :rolleyes:
Thats what happens when U throw out BS numbers.. Denon is a well-respected brand, no need to do this for their mid to higher end products, entry-level maybe..

Just my $0.02.. ;)

So the 3700H seems to be saying that it only has 1 x 8K input?
I wonder if that's correct... if so, then it's not enough for someone like me to jump in.
2-3 could work.
7 is the obvious result I'd be looking for.

Yep. Only one 48 GBit/s Input.
They want us to use eARC instead.
I really hope Yamaha will over more 48 GBit/s inputs.


Aaaand..., they're gone... --- "Video unavailable, This video is private" :)
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I already suspected that they were not supposed to be published yet.
They were put to "not listed" on their channel :D
But an official announcement should be comming really soon.
Maybe even today or tomorrow.
