Summary: I bought this receiver thinking it was superbly priced 7.1 model as the technical details section on this page describes it many times to be. It is not so. The AVR-1712 and 1713 are 5.1 systems.
Summary: It's got the electronics I needed. It has been set up for me by my communications specialist so that I push one button for TV and another for the Sony blu ray player (I aslo purchased from Amazon) and it's hooked up to my surround sound. Doesn't get easier than that.
Summary: The denon avr-1712 has the most awsome theater sound! It really brought movies alive. I love the 7.2 channel surround sound. The auto Eq mic works great for balanced sound, and it is so easy to calibrate, even in a large, odd shaped room.
Summary: Have owned this receiver for around two years and originally paired with two Polk Audio Monitor II 70 tower speakers. Everything works pretty good but I had noticed issues playing Netflix through my Chromecast with bad audio while playing the 5.1 stream but sounds fine for stereo.
Receiver died one month out of warranty! Avoid Denon

Summary: I bought this receiver and lightly used it for 2 years and one month and low and behold it shuts down and gives me an error code that the transformer is bad. I called Denon support and after four follow up calls and emailing twice, they told me that they were sorry but they could not do anything.
Summary: The DENON AVR-1712 was exactly what I was looking for. After researching and considering comparable models by ONKYO, PIONEER, SONY and YAMAHA I realized that for the price point and performance it offered, it would more than suit my needs. Many people tend to over-buy when it comes to AV components.
Summary: Have had it about a month. Very pleased with the sound, the Audyssey MultEQ XT, and the look of the unit (much better than the new models). Spent a lot of time researching and with an Apple TV 3, I decided I did not need to spend more cash on Airplay, network ability, or having imbeded products that...
Summary: This reciever was the next logical step in upgrading my sound system and just like every other component I've purchased it was a leap forward in sound quality. I started with a 13yo yamaha boxed HT system, first piece I got was a klipsch 12" powered sub and the difference in quality set me on a path...
Summary: The Denon 1712 is an extremely well made product and in collaboration with my new MartinLogan MLT-2 speakers it makes for amazing sound. Love the receiver for it's features and especially the Audyssey MultEQ XT advanced resolution room correction.
When working correctly it is a good receiver, but make sure the unit is not ...

Summary: Over the two years we have owned this AV receiver, we had to have it repaired 3 times. Even though I have it plugged into a $300 Master Power unit, this was the only component that was knocked out by nearby lightning strikes. It is also very sensitive to speaker inputs.
