hi im interested also in buying the same model (4500 or 4700). I think that Denon 4700 will be an 11ch processor with 200W per channel, according to this article https://www.hxosplus.gr/av/denon-avc-x4700h-2020-11-2/Many thanks for the link. I am interested in the x4700 model (or the sr7015 Marantz equivalent), here's a very quick comparison with the current x4500h:
List price for x4700 is $1699 which is $100 more expensive than x4500. Unless they also updated the DAC and/or DSP sections, that is way too much imo.
- added HDCP2.3, HDMI 2.1 & related features.
- added HRD10+.
- added 2way Bluetooth.
- Auro/Auromatic support is missing from the specs (only x6700 has it). That would be a big letdown for me, x4500 had it.
- same power specs (125W at 8ohm 2channel). The whole amp section seems to be 100% same.
- front/back/internal screenshots look pretty much the same, could be that the only extra is the HDMI2.1 stuff.
unless they have mistaken 6700 with 4700!
Furthermore at the present time Denon 4500 costs new in Europe around 1100E and in US around 1299$, so the difference will be around 400$(=350E) which is a signifficant amount to think of
