result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified
technician to restore the product to its normal operation,
e) If the product has been dropped or damaged in any way, and
f) When the product exhibits a distinct change in performance – this
indicates a need for service.
22. Replacement Parts – When replacement parts are required, be sure the
service technician has used replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer or have the same characteristics as the original part.

Speaker connections
Connect the speaker terminals with the speakers
making sure that like polarities are matched (<
with <, > with >).
NOTE:
When making connections, take care that
none of the individual conductors of the
speaker cable come in contact with adjacent
terminals, with other speaker cable
conductors, or with the rear panel and
screws.
NEVER touch the speaker terminals when
the power is on. Doing so could result in
electric shocks.
Connecting the speaker cables
1. Loosen by turning
counterclockwise.
Either tightly twist or terminate the core
wires.
2. Insert the cable.
3. Tighten by turning clockwise.
• With the AVR-1707, up to ten speakers can be connected for surround playback.
• When making connections, also refer to the operating instructions of the other components.

Note on speaker impedance
When using speakers with an impedance
below the designated value (for example 4
Ω/ohms), playing for long periods of time with
the volume high could cause the temperature
to rise, activating the protection circuit.
When the protection circuit is activated, the
output to the speakers is cut off and the power
indicator blinks. If this happens, unplug the
power cord, wait for the set to cool off and
improve ventilation around the unit. Also check
the wiring of the input cables and the speaker
cables. After doing this, plug the power cord
back in and turn the unit’s power back on.
If the protection circuit is activated again even
though there are no problems with the wiring or
the ventilation around the unit, switch off the
power and contact a DENON service center.

Cautions during measurements:
• Loud test tones are output during the measurements. Be careful
for example when small children are nearby.
• Proper measurements may not be possible if there are obstacles
between the speaker and the setup microphone.
• During the measurements, do not stand between or near the
speakers and setup microphone.
• To avoid influencing the measurements, turn off the power of airconditioners or any other equipment producing sound in the
room. Perform the measurements with the room as quiet as
possible.
• Measurement is cancelled when VOLUME is operated while the
Auto Setup is performed.
• When measurements have been made using the measurement
microphone, speakers with a built-in filter such as subwoofers might
be set with a value that differs from the physical distance because
of the internal electrical delay.
NOTE:
• Do not change the speaker connections or subwoofer volume
after making the measurements.
• Do not turn off the power while the data is being stored.

Basic Operation
Basic Operation
Using the DENON original surround modes
The AVR-1707 is equipped with a high performance digital signal processor (DSP) that uses digital signal processing to recreate sound fields
artificially. One of seven surround modes can be selected according to the program source and parameters can be further adjusted to achieve
even more realistic sound fields.
Types of surround modes and their features
5CH/7CH STEREO
(NOTE 1)
This mode lets you enjoy stereo sound with 7 speakers. The front L (R) channel signals are played from the surround
and surround back L (R) channels and only the in-phase component of the L and R channels is played on the center
channel.
MONO MOVIE
(NOTE 2)
This mode recreates the atmosphere of an expansive sound field for movie sources recorded in monaural.
ROCK ARENA
This mode recreates the atmosphere of a live concert in an arena.
JAZZ CLUB
This mode recreates the atmosphere of a live concert in a club with low ceilings, hard walls and the artist just in
front of you.
VIDEO GAME
This mode provides a rich sense of presence for video games.
MATRIX
This mode recreates music sources recorded in stereo with an enhanced sense of expansion.
VIRTUAL
This mode can be used to enjoy surround sound with only front speakers or when using headphones.
NOTE 1: “5CH STEREO” is displayed when “SB CH OUT” is set to “OFF”.
NOTE 2: When playing sources recorded in monaural, the sound will be one-sided if signals are only input to one channel (left or right), so input
signals to both channels. If you have a source component with only one audio output (monophonic camcorder, etc.) obtain a “Y”
adapter cable to split the mono output to two outputs, and connect to the L and R inputs.
• Depending on the program source being played, the effect may not be very noticeable. In this case, try other surround modes, without
worrying about their names, to create a sound field suited to your tastes.

Additional Information
We recommend using two speakers.
When using dipolar speakers in particular, be sure to use two speakers.
Surround back speakers
Sound position directly to the rear can be achieved easily by adding a
surround back speaker to a 5.1-channel system.
In addition, the acoustic image extending between the sides and the
rear is narrowed, thus greatly improving the expression of the
surround signals for sounds moving from the sides to the back and
from the front to the point directly behind the listening position.

DTS NEO:6 surround
DTS Digital Surround
DTS Digital Surround is a digital surround format developed by Digital
Theater Systems of the United States.
The number of playback channels and the playing band is the same as
for Dolby Digital (5.1-channels).
The compression rate of the audio data when it was recorded on the
medium is lower than for Dolby Digital, so there is more information
when the data is decoded, resulting in richer, clearer sound quality.
This is a matrix decoding technology for 6.1-channel surround
playback of 2-channel sources.
The optimum decoding for the type of signal source to be played can
be selected. There are 2 modes.
Dolby Digital is the multi-channel digital signal format developed by
Dolby Laboratories.
A total of 5.1-channels are played: 3 front channels (“FL”, “FR” and
“C”), 2 surround channels (“SL” and “SR”) and the “LFE” channel for
low frequencies.
Because of this, there is no crosstalk between channels and a realistic
sound field with a “three-dimensional” feeling (sense of distance,
movement and positioning) is achieved.
A real, overpowering sense of presence is achieved when playing
movie sources in AV rooms as well.

channels to achieve an excellent surround effect.
The surround channel signals are converted into stereo and full band
signals (with a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater) to
create a “three-dimensional” sound image offering a rich sense of
presence for all stereo sources.
[3] Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic IIx is a further improved version of the Dolby Pro
Logic II matrix decoding technology.
Audio signals recorded in 2 channels are decoded to achieve a natural
sound with up to 7.1-channels.
There are 3 modes: “Music” suited for playing music, “Cinema”
suited for playing movies, and “Game” which is optimum for playing
games.

DTS-ES is a new surround format developed by Digital Theater
Systems.
A sound image and sense of positioning can be achieved by adding a
surround back (“SB”) channel to the conventional 5.1-channels.
DTS-ES™ Discrete 6.1:
This is the latest format, in which all 6.1-channels, including the
“SB” channel, are recorded independently. Since the different
channels are independent, the sound can be designed with total
freedom.
DTS-ES™ Matrix 6.1:
With this format, the “SB” channel is matrix-encoded and inserted
into the “SL” and “SR” channels, then decoded for the “SL”, “SR”
and “SB” channels upon playback. This achieves a surround sound
more faithful to the artist’s sound design intentions than with
conventional 5.1- or 6.1-channel systems.
DTS 96/24
DTS 96/24 is a multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital
Theater Systems.
The sampling frequency is raised to achieve 5.1-channel playback with
high quality sound (sampling frequency: 96 kHz, quantization: 24 bits).

DTS NEO:6 CINEMA:
This mode is suited for playing movies. It achieves the same type of
sound as in a movie theater, even with 2 channels.
Neural Surround
Neural Surround™, a breakthrough in audio technology, will bring the
excitement of surround music to more of America’s listening
audience. It provides the rich envelopment and discrete image detail
of surround sound in a format 100 % compatible with stereo. With
superior spectral resolution and channel separation, Neural
Surround™ draws the brain’s attention to sonic details in musical
instruments, vocals, and ambience that are typically masked by other
playback systems. This allows the listener to fully experience the
richness and subtleties in recorded performance as never before. As
the chosen format for XM Satellite Radio’s new XM HD surround
programming, Neural Surround will help deliver more surround music
to more listeners than any other broadcast format. XM Satellite Radio
will be the first radio company -to broadcast surround sound on the
radio 24 hours a day and will offer three channels fully dedicated to
Neural Surround™ music. This alone will amount to more than 25,000
hours of Neural Surround™ music each year.
