    Denon AVR-X4700 AVR Review (Updated)

    Thank you for the warm welcome. I think this forum has already saved me £700! By the way, I did some listening with the volume turned right up with ATV as source, and it sounded fantastic. I now realise I was that what I thought might be 48kHz re sampling was simply listening at low volumes...

    Denon AVR-X4700 AVR Review (Updated)

    If anyone's interested I’ve now Frankensteined a partial alternative to the Eversolo, using an old fire tablet, Home Assistant, and the kiosk app . It displays album art of whatever is playing on the Apple TV, and has buttons which trigger playlists on the Apple TV (levarging homekit). Since...

    Thank you for sharing! A quick question on DRC - I'd always saw this divide people for movies, and have always left it off. Is it farily well accepted then as a good thing to activate for music? This curve indeed looks impressive. From memory there were some db offset options for DRC regarding...

    Wow. Really leaning away now...! Can you suggest where to follow this? Wasn't sure if was this forum somewhere?

    Denon AVR-X4700 AVR Review (Updated)

    Lol. Honestly this is appreciated. I quite want to persuade my wife now to blind test me on 44.1 vs 48 re-sampling. Just to put it to rest for myself. Things get generally a lot easier if don't have to worry about 48 kHz. And indeed the Apple TV as a solution I now realise needs further...

    Interesting. Thank you. Actually, I have always used the denon app to disable correction above 300Hz or so, since I was never confident in how it was correcting my room above that. It didn't occur could do the same for music too.

    Denon AVR-X4700 AVR Review (Updated)

    Hah - that's exactly what I've been doing the last few weeks. Using a dedicated Apple TV for this, on it's own input. It's a bit obsessive I know but it bothers me that all 44.1kHz music will be upsampled to 48kHz. Though I've never blind tested myself on this and wouldn't be at all surprised...

    Denon AVR-X4700 AVR Review (Updated)

    It's a very good point. To date I have always done my 2 channel listening in pure direct mode, thereby bypassing the audyssey DSP. I have always been wary of getting "used to" how my music sounds under a particular calbiration because I know how variable different Audyssey calibrations are. 2...

    Denon AVR-X4700 AVR Review (Updated)

    Many thanks for sharing this experience. The sticking point for me is Apple Music, which our family is invested in now don't want to change away from anytime soon.... I hadn't realised until recently that Apple Music from iOS over Airplay 2 (including to the 4700) is down-sampled from...

    Denon AVR-X4700 AVR Review (Updated)

    Thank you. Sorry to be clear I have the 4700, I'm not weighing up buying an AVR. I'm specifically interested in this streamer for the apple music implementation + screen, and don't mind paying for that. (I appreciate 95% of the features would be found in something like a Wiim Pro). I'm not...

    Denon AVR-X4700 AVR Review (Updated)

    Hi all, Happy 4700 owner here. I'm planning on getting a streamer DAC (specifically the eversolo DMP-A6). I am unsure whether I should be better of connecting the streamer DAC to the 4700 via digital (and using therefore using the 4700 DAC), or taking advantage of the reportedly quite nice...
