    Can an unused amplifier pair of Denon AVR-X3700H AVR be used to feed passive subwoofers? (Yes)

    I am considering upgrading a friend's AVR. As an entry level AVR Denon AVR-X3700H seems to be a good choice. The unit has nine amplifiers but my friend's setup is 5.2, hence there will be two redundant channels of amplification. My friend's subwoofers are passive. They are currently run through...

    Best 8k AVR with at least 11.2/13.2 amplified channels?

    Hey guys, just wondering if any of the 8k AVRs stand out from the rest? AFAIK, there is the Denon 6700H and 8500HA, and the Marantz SR8015... Are there any others? If not, are there really any major differences between these AVRs? They are all Audyssey XT32, power handling they are the same...

    My Predictions Of The Future AVR

    This is my predictions of the future AVR. Editing is not the best but get's the point down. The Front: No volume control knob. Volume is controlled by the TV (via eARC/ARC) and by the AVR remote. Power button is still here due to mainly emergency reasons and factory resets. Although the...

    Denon X3700H vs x4700H

    The Denon X3700H is about $1,500 and the Denon X4700H is about $2000. These AVRs represent the best of the budget I am willing to spend on my next AVR. As far as I can see the only differences are that the X4700H has DDSC, Clock Jitter Reducer, Alpha Processing, and 20 extra watts per channel...

    AVR Speaker Impedance Selector

    Greetings! I've a question regarding modifying default speaker impedance on my AVR, Yamaha RX-V583. The thing is that US models have selector for 6 and 8 ohms, and I guess almost everybody would use them in 8 ohms position to allow higher voltage supply to an amplifier. The problem is that my...
