Thread Details

I was looking for a Receiver to go with the Infinity Primus P363. The Denon AVR-2312CI was on sale at Fry's for $499.99 but they were sold out. Best Buy would only Price match to Fry's' regular price of $599.99.

Costco had the Yamaha HTR-7065 [yamaha.com] Receiver for $479 Item number 677065. It has most of the options the Denon has including Airplay and 4K passthrough for upgrades later on.

I'm assuming this is in store only. Which will then be better if you put YMMV in the title as not all Costcos have the same inventory.

Is there an inventory checker for Costco?

FYI...I dropped by local Costco...these are so new they are not even in the regional distribution center and only a few stores have them "on order" - no eta on when they would be fulfilled, and no price determined yet - or so I was told (I do recognize that prices vary between stores).

Smokin' hot deal on a new model receiver. This is like a clearance price.

Still wondering why there's been no clearance on the 2011 model Yamaha units this year like there was last year on the 2010 units.

I added the number on the receipt. Installed it today and The Yamaha iOS app and Airplay work flawlessly. This thing is worth the $479.

I can't imagine spending $480 for a receiver for a $200 pair of speakers. Any good receiver for the P363 for under $300?

I bought a Denon AVR-3312CI for $550 from the Amazon deal a month ago to drive an existing 5.1 system. (Pioneer in ceiling speakers x4, Energy center and subs)

The Denon allows a separate set of front full range speakers to be used and I bought a set of P363 to take advantage of it. These speakers are hands down awesome for the money and a great fit with a mid level monster AVR like the 3312 running in pure direct mode.

I run a 3D Bluray player, ARC, and have a 600 album FLAC collection that streams to Denon. My subs (2) have never sounded better than with MultiEQ XT.

The whole expenditure was well worth it.

The brandon, fl (Tampa bay) store has at least 10 of them after I just grabbed one. Same price.

Compared wit the vr671 on sale at amazon right now and decided on this unit as I don't really need another device to play pandora. Smilie

Good timing as my 4 year old pioneer elite vs90 died yesterday.

It has airplay so can play Pandora using that if you have an iOS device.

Even better, the USB port on it charges my iPhone even when the receiver is on standby. Having it hooked up allows me to use the receiver to control the music and video on the iphone. :-) I need to buy a access bridge as no wired Ethernet near my TV. (Probably Linksys E1000 with DD_WRT)

The on CD manual, as usual is definitely lacking in detail, but I was able to hook up all my equipment and figure out how to assigne Audio1 to AV1 so I can combine the Wii audio with the component video. (AV1 has digital audo default to it) It does a bang-up job in upconverting the Wii signal to HDMI and sending it on to the TV.

The on-screen menu takes some getting used to but it's pretty powerful for configuring the receiver.

Looks like the VS90 demise took my Energy subwoofer with it. :-( Power comes on but no sound at all apart from a hum when unplugging the audio input. Unless the Yamaha is a dud, tried it on both subwoofer outputs with 3 different cables.

MSRP for the HTRis $849. For the VR it is $599.

VR is 3D but the HTR does HDMI 4k thru amd 3D.
VR has more apps, eg Pandora but the HTR has Airplay. Both support DLNA 1.5
VR 6 HDMI in /1 out / HTR 6 HDMI in / 2 HDMI out
iDevice docks/Bluetooth for the VR but no dedicated Wifi dongle. No docks/Bluetooth for the HTR but WiFi dongle

I compared the specs on the Yamaha side and decided on the HTR as I do not have a 3d tv and no plans for one. Also, the HTR was pickup at Costco with easy return. Also I got to touhc it and it felt solid and heavy. Came home and checked Amazon again before opening the box.

For those with BrightHouse, code 175 works to add it to their 8780 remote and allows volume to be set on the HTR

My suggestion is to compare the specs on both units on Yamaha's site and pick teh one that suits you best spec/price wise.

RX-V671 [yamaha.com] vs. HTR-7065 [yamaha.com]
