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 needed a receiver to power a pair of Martin Logan Motion 12 I got from newegg. These speakers are rated at 4ohm which are harder / require more current to drive properly. Main purpose is to listen to Electronic Dance Music at pretty loud levels (louder than movie theater, but lower than a club setting). After trying Denon avr 1912,music sounded flat...lacking the crisp sound from the high end...I figure that the 1912 didn't have enough power to tried the Denon avr-2312. The avr2312 had the same issue. So it seems that both the Denon had enough power...but the sound I was hearing was a characteristic of Denon receivers. (FYI: I tried calibrating with the microphone multiple times, adjusting the settings...I was even desperate enough to movie my entire setup to another room to make sure that wasn't a factor).

I then tried the Onkyo Nr709, which on paper/specs should be more than enough to power my speakers. Again, the music didn't sound "right" (I wanted the bright and crisp highs with a wide soundstage I'm used to from my Sennhieser HD650 headphones). So I returned the Onkyo. At this point, I thought I had made a mistake for buying these speakers, since I went through 3 diff receivers and didn't like the sound from them. But before I purchased the speakers, I auditioned them from a Magnolia Theater store and they sounded perfect.

I went several weeks without a receiver...until I saw this post. I purchased the HTR-7065 from the Costco in Tustin, CA (same as original poster). Hooked everything up and it sounded great...I calibrated and minimally adjusted the settings and this thing sounded WONDERFUL! After a long search, I found the right receiver/speaker combo.

Sound is really subjective...and depends on what setup, use, and type of music you listen to...what works for some might not work for you...best thing to do is try out diff stuff. But it easier to have somewhere to start.

I had an Onkyo 608 which was having HDMI issues. So that is why I posted in this thread. I got the HTR-7065. I got home and ran a multi-listening YPAO. I did five listening positions, on two couches. Anyway, I have noticed that the dialogue has an echo to it and the only way to disable it is to change the parametric eq from flat to natural. The only problem is that the Yamaha techs tell me that by changing the eq that I messed up the YPAO measurements. I don't really listen to music on mine, it is mainly for movies and video games. So I guess you have not run into any issues then?

Does Costco still have this price available on the 7065?

Yes. About 30+ at the local Perimeter Store in Atlanta for $479 today. Not stocked at the Cumberland and another store. So many not be available in all stores in your area. You can call and ask.

Just picked this up for $479.99. Was thinking of getting the Onkyo 809 that was on sale at amazon, but the reviews held me off. Glad I waited. Smilie

Got mine about a month ago, out of stock locally now.

Just got it setup before Xmas, so far I am pleased. It is so much simpler to use than my 6 yr old Denon. Not an audiophile, so can't comment on audio quality. It has apps for my android phone and ipad. Not all avr has ipad sized app. You can turn the avr on and off. Not all options, settings can be set directly via the app, but you can use the app to act as the remote.

Would be nice to have backlit remote, and discrete on/off buttons. But with the apps, the remote is not as important.
