For compatibility with the widest range of loudspeakers the AVR-S720W is equipped with low impedance drive capability that provides operational stability with 4 ohm speakers.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs

The AVR-S720W features dual subwoofer outputs, which lets you connect two smaller subwoofers instead of a single larger sub, and enjoy the benefits of response averaging by having two subs in different locations in the room. With dual subwoofers, deep bass is smoother and more detailed, minimizing the peaks and dips that often result with a single subwoofer setup.

Via the supplied measuring microphone and mic stand, Audyssey MultEQ measures all the speakers in your home theater during setup, including the subwoofer, and then generates multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters which together provide smoothest and most natural tonal balance, regardless of the brand or model of the various speakers.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume features advanced psycho-acoustic processing to deliver clear dialog and wide range sound at reduced volume levels so that you can enjoy theater-level clarity at whatever listening level you choose. Audyssey Dynamic EQ also features advanced DSP processing to deliver full range wide-band response even at reduced volume levels.

Audyssey MultEQ Editor App

The latest Denon audio video products use Audyssey MultEQ for simple, accurate set-up and calibration of your system to the room in which it's used. But now you can go further with the Audyssey MultEQ Editor app, going "under the hood" to view and adjust settings for detailed tuning – allowing you to customize the sound more precisely to the specific problems in your room, and tailor the sound to your personal preferences. With this comprehensive app, you can harness the power of Audyssey MultEQ to take total control of the way your home cinema sounds.

 

This app will allow you to:

  • View the speaker detection results, to check correct installation.
  • View before and after results of the Audyssey calibration, making it easy to identify room problems.
  • Edit the Audyssey target curve for each channel pair to suit your tastes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible interface and wifi connection This is by far the most difficult user interface of any device I have ever owned. I have put hours into setting it up and making changes and it still does not operate properly. To make matters worse it seems to change the settings on its own so you need to go back and do it again. To top it off the wifi connection is terrible. I have four other devices with wifi in the same room and all work flawlessly but not the Denon S720w. It constantly loses the connection and then 10-15 minutes later picks it up again. When I run the diagnostic it says "connection is okay". This device is painful and I would never buy another Denon product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Sound. iOS Remote App is Horrible. Great Sound and Excellent Functionality. Ease of use is very cumbersome. New iOS Remote App is Horrible. App Does not connect to AVR. It stopped connecting now, not usable.
Date published: 2016-12-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not user friendly I bought this about a year ago and have had connection issues ever since. Bluetooth never wants to stay connected even after troubleshooting many times. The only time I get to listen to anything on this device is when I have my laptop connected or I listen to online music. Just a bummer as it would be nice if the Wifi feature of this product actually worked, since it is the main reason I purchased it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really great sound but some rough spots... Even though this is an AVR, I purchased this mainly for audio- mainly Pandora over wi-fi. When it works the sound is amazing- better than from my iTunes library. But lots of issues- first you have to perform a firmware update to get Pandora working. It hung and I had to call support. They were not 100% sure what was going on. We restarted the update and it worked. Each day it grabs a new IP address- some days this takes 5 minutes or longer. BTW-I have a strong network: new Netgear AC class router with good strength and speedtest show 150mbps download speed. ios app is not a great UI, but after a few days it's ok-but I love what it does. Very cool. Overall, we must remind ourself that these are now more computer than audio gear- and as such will have some rough spots at times.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great and high quality sound I tried the Onkyo TX-N555, also the Yamaha RX-V681 and definitively I kept the Denon AVR-S720W, despite of having less power per channel (75W), compared with Onkyo (80W) and Yamaha (90W), the quality of sound in my opinion was higher; I had a Yamaha RX-V2300 which made an acoustimass 10 speaker system sounds like being in a cinema and the closest expereince I had was with Denon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What happened to Denon Quality? I have purchased Denon home AVRs and other equipment for over 20 years and they have always been extremely reliable. In fact, my first unit purchases is still working. However, the most recent item AVR S720W has been in for repairs once and now is Freezing up again. I love the products but am concerned that the quality I relied upon has diminished.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent mix of features at a reasonable price I have a 5.1 surround sound system in my living room and the receiver recently went bad. I selected the Denon AVR-S720W as a replacement/substantial upgrade. I've had it for 4 days now and so far so good. I mostly use Apple/iOS devices and setup was a breeze. I've watched one of my favorite movies (Scott Pilgrim vs the World) and the surround sound was excellent. Connecting to Spotify is fantastic. Airplay works flawlessly and I love that I can change the volume from within whatever app I'm using. The Denon remote app has terrible reviews, but since I came from a device with no wifi or connectivity I didn't really have any expectations. The app does what it's supposed to do and keeps me from needing to find the remote. I've got a ChromeCast and ps4 connected as well and all is working and sounding good. There was a firmware update after calibration. This went well and supposedly fixed a Pandora issue (which I don't use anyway). I'd definitely recommend this receiver for anyone who hasn't purchased a new one in the past 3 years. I'm hopeful to get a lot of usage out of it. The only thing that seems odd is that when I connect the front HDMI port to my laptop to watch a movie via iTunes the sound is at a much lower level. I haven't tested other HDMI inputs connected to the laptop, and there could be a lot of other factors causing this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent unit for the cost I like the unit, it has areas for improvement but overall a good unit. Not happy about the Pandora issue and XM radio is also not working but looks to be a firmware update.

I'm using a Fiio x5 3rd edition DAP to stream bluetooth to my Denon avr-s720. The Fiio has aptx so I'm wondering if the reciever is enabled for aptx and if not could it be in future through a firmware update .

Asked by: GURN
Hi GURN. The AVR-S720W does not support APTX Bluetooth, and there are currently no plans to upgrade the Bluetooth to support it. For APTX playback you may want to use an external Bluetooth receiver connected to a digital or analog audio input of the AVR.

Hey - I have purchased two (2) 720's in order to provide audio in 4 zones. Both in same AV cabinet. Is there a way to provide each receiver with it's own unique IR remote signature -- or disable the IR from one and control it from the app only???

Asked by: StevieMac
Hi StevieMac. Unfortunately there is no way to separate the IR remote signature. They will both respond to the same remote control commands.

Is there any way to reconfigure an amp output to power a passive subwoofer? Or only active sub from the RCA output?

Asked by: Larrypick
Hi Larrypick. It's not possible to reassign any of the internal amp channels to drive a passive subwoofer. You would need to use an external subwoofer amp, connecting that to the subwoofer pre-out.

I have a pair of bose blutooth headphones. How do I pair it with the reciever? Do I need a seperate trasmitter?

Asked by: tbweber
This would be a great feature for sure, but our current line of receivers only supports receiving audio from Bluetooth devices, and do not have the ability to transmit to a Bluetooth headset. There are also no audio outputs on the AVR-S720W which could be used to connect a separate Bluetooth transmitter.

Just bought this receiver. Can the 720 expand to more atmos channels with an additional amp?

Asked by: Jaffarcree918
Hello. The AVR-S720W does not have pre-out terminals to connect an external amplifier, and does not support more than the built-in 7 channels of processing.
