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.

EDIT: YMMV - I purchased this one at Costco in Tustin, CA


Amazon [amazon.com] has the RX series version of the unit for $799.

HTR-7065 MSRP: $849.95

Sophisticated zone options include powered Zone 2 with party mode and Zone B dual HDMI outputs. The optional Wi-Fi adapter with free to download Yamaha AV Controller App provides simple network control in either zone. Multi-point YPAO auto calibration expedites setup and ensures accuracy.

I need a receiver to connect the home theater system in the basement and two separate speakers in first floor and second floor of my house. I bought a model home, so the house came with the speakers pre-installed. Will this work? I think the speakers in the first and second floor would be zone 2?

IT has the ability to power a zone 2 with 2 speaksrs and it seems it can use a different input for those (with the exception of airplay) so zone 1 coudl be watching a movie and zone 2 could be listening to the radio.You can either connect 2 speakers directly or connect an external amplifier via analog line-out.

Thanks I will look into this. I have two speakers in first floor and two in bedroom, think they are supposed to be stereo.
Might have to split the cable and see if that works without an external amplifier? I just want to play the same music on all three level whenever I am having a party. That's the only use for the upstairs speakers.

I just picked this up today in Duncanville, TX (had to drive 30 miles to get it). Awesome deal. If you are in the Dallas area, Duncanville had 16 on stock (15 now). Next nearest location with supply was Austin.

In case you may have happened to ask, any insight on when they might be available a bit further north in the metroplex?

Might still be worth the drive, but gas and time certainly cuts a bit off the value.

Also, wonder if this has gotten rolled out elsewhere in the country or not? Maybe this is just a test site, though I'd choose other locales than Duncanville for products like this one for a launch.

I agree that a different area would have been better to roll this out. I didn't ask about timeframe but the Costco nearest me in Plano had the HTR-4065 (and I noticed several other Costco's in the area had that one as well-I need more inputs and the 2 HDMI's outs). I'm wondering if they will either get one or the other. In either case, I'm happy i got it ... took me 30 minutes to get there but I found out my car gets 32mpg's on the highway. :Cool

For Costco new product items per store, go to their website, click on "In the Store", then "What's new", enter your store and check for new items. I see it in the SF and Redwood City stores.

These Yamaha's are very nice to use, very good reliability and once you are trained on how to use/set them up correctly they tend to "just work", which is nice.

However once you get into these midrange price points YPAO becomes a big limitation imho, because it does not handle subwoofer EQ well at all. This is a point that may not matter to some people, but in a decent setup it is a huge problem.

I had both RX2000 / RX3000 units for some time that I was extremely happy with in almost every way except for YPAO. The "Scene" functionality is amazing and should be on all AVR's. Excellent apple/android network application. Solid feature base and trouble free operation. No real bugs to speak of, which is pretty impressive these days.

But because of the poor sub EQ I can't really recommend them. Not an issue if you don't run subs or have some other solution to handle sub EQ.

Excellent point...however, it does not indicate what is in the store, only what's coming...I know because I went to a Costco that had it listed like this, thinking the same thing. So, put these stores on your watch list, but don't expect it to be in stock.

Is your comment about Yamaha receivers with YPAO in general? Or specific to the two models you mentioned and the model highlighted in this thread?

2000 & 3000 models both had the highest end YPAO suite with the sound reflection upgrade. I believe there have been no significant upgrades to YPAO since then. While there are different levels, all of them have the subwoofer EQ deficiency.

Unless there have been updates to address this in the new models... but I'm fairly certain there were no updates in the xx10 and xx20 models, and Yamaha is still using the same marketing lingo for the different YPAO versions they were in 2010.

Without proper sub EQ most rooms are a mess. Heck, most rooms are a mess WITH proper sub EQ.

It won't bother everybody but I think if you are spending $500+ on an AVR the chances of it bothering you should get pretty high, bad sub EQ is very noticeable. I realize a lot of people don't care and love the sound of a way out of whack booming sub setup which is why I think Yamaha can continue to get away with it. But it is legit weakness in their product compared to the competition, and it's a real one you can clearly hear in real-world use. So if you are picky about your subs Yamaha is not a good match at the moment.

And as I said before, it's a damn shame because they are wonderful units in almost every other respect.

Thanks. I assume you are talking about a scenario where the Yamaha AVR is driving the sub. What if your sub has its own amp and can be adjusted for when it kicks in, etc.?
