Here is what I could find:

Here too:
I guess we could say they are the same family but the 717 will be a bit more powerful and have some more features.

Worked on a few of these...the 717 is designed for a bit more power (85W vs 65W), and the 717 has a bit nicer tone control section, as well as film caps in coupling locations where in a few spots the 517 uses an electrolytic.

Very closely related units though...

The 517 usually goes fairly cheap, but the 717 commands a lot more money.

I think both are very good amps (but kind of a PITA to work on..) If you find a decent deal on a 717, go for it.
