(2020) Denon AVC-X6700 Dolby Atmos AV Amplifier

With 8K support plus 13-channel computing potential, the Denon AVC-X6700H offers next-generation home theater.

Flexible 11.2-channel sound for full immersion
Offering a fully immersive sound, this Denon allows you to set up four-ceiling or Atmos-enabled speakers as well as a full 7-channel surround sound. Alternatively, use two Atmos speakers and enjoy a wide soundscape with “wide front speakers” that form a 9.2.2 system. If you don’t like a specific Dolby Atmos system but want the most engaging sound possible, look for an 11.2 setting. This offers a 7.2 sound with the addition of front width and front height speakers.Denon AVC-X6700

Add a stand-alone power amplifier and enjoy 13-channel processing
If the 11-channel sound is not enough, why not extend to 13! Just add an additional stereo power amplifier and enjoy the additional immersion of 13-channel sound processing. This facilitates a 9.2.4 system, with four ceiling speakers and front speakers combined. Alternatively, set up as a 7.2.6 system with six-ceilinged speakers, ideal for larger rooms.

The next level of surround sound
With extensive surround sound support, the AVC-X6700H relies on surround sound, for many speakers you use. Supported formats include Dolby Atmos, Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization Technology, DTS:X, DTS Virtual:X, DTS:X Pro, IMAX Enhanced, and Auro-3D. This wide range of options means that you can adapt the surround sound speaker system from the simpler system with “virtual height” speakers to 13.2 systems that really bring cinema home.

Features expiring through future firmware updates.

Ready for 8K
With 8K-compatible HDMI jacks, this Premium Denon AVC is ready for the next generation of TVs. The amplifier not only goes through 8K/60Hz signals, but also extends HDMI signals to the 8K standard, too, helping you get the most out of your 8K TV with 4K UHD media. If you haven’t made the jump to 8K TV yet, the sockets also handle signals up to 4K/120Hz, for maximum quality and expansion with 4K UHD.Denon AVC-X6700

Supports Dolby Vision, HDR10 and Dynamic HDR
In addition to supporting 8K, AVC-X6700H also supports a wide range of high dynamic range video formats. These include Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG. It also supports HDR10, which improves image realism by sending dynamic meta data to the TV and dynamic HDR. In short, whatever format the movie, game or broadcast uses, the Denon supports it.

Seriously on the game
The latest HDMI support also marks a big improvement in the game. 4K/120Hz and VRR (Refresh Rate variable) support maximizes resolution and clarity. Fast Frame Transport (QFT) and Automatic Low Latency (ALLM) mode eliminate frame delay and tear, giving you a smoother, more responsive gaming experience.

Now it works with all voice assistants
The AVC-X6700 adds Siri and Google Assistant to Alexa, making it more widely compatible with voice assistants than before. For The Alexa or Google Assistant control, simply download the HEOS app. Pair your Echo device if you’re using Alexa and you’re ready to get started: adjust the volume, go to the next track and change your voices just by asking Alexa or Google. For Siri control, simply connect the amplifier via Apple AirPlay 2 and enjoy airPlay 2 voice interaction and multi-camera support.

Powerful processing for end-to-end excellence
The ADI Griffin Lite ADI Griffin DSPs provide the AVC-X6700H with immense processing power. Denon’s AL32 processing provides ultra-high resolution digital audio filters and precision adaptation of the main channels to provide accuracy and the most natural sound possible. Finally, 32-bit AKM DACs (digital to analog converter) provide this AV amplifier with detailed reference levels and high-resolution audio support.Denon AVC-X6700

Advanced multi-camera functionality and custom installation ready for installation
The AVC-X6700H has no less than three HDMI outputs with an independent zone 2. This means that you can perform audio and video on another screen, in another room regardless of the twin main outputs. The IP control capability for major third-party control devices, as well as Simple Device Detection Protocol (SDPP) Control4 certification and twin dc triggers make this amplifier ideal for more complex home installations.

Built-in HEOS – for the best multi-room audio
HEOS multi-room music systems connect to each other via dual-band Wi-Fi, making it easy to set up with your existing home network. You can configure up to 32 HEOS units at a time, ensuring that even the largest of the houses is covered for multi-room music. With HEOS already integrated, AVC-X6700H is ready to use as a single “zone” with no more adapters.

Check everything with the HEOS app
Once you’ve set up your HEOS speaker system, you can stream music effortlessly through the dedicated HEOS app. Available for Apple iOS and Android, the app not only allows you to stream your stored music, but also Internet radio services and popular streaming services like Spotify, Tidal, Napster and Deezer.

Bluetooth, AirPlay 2 and built-in wi-fi for a full network experience
With Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 connectivity it’s easy to connect all your compatible smartphones, tablets and laps/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The AVC-X6700H also comes with wi-fi and Internet radio. Simply connect to your home network via Ethernet or wi-fi and access thousands of Internet radio sites via vTuner, as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect (requires a Spotify Premium account).
