What's the difference between the rx-v779 and its successor rx-v789? I have a 4k hdr10 TV (UN65KS8000) with no plans for atmos/dtsx.

The only thing I saw was that it has a higher version of bluetooth. I read some things where people said it really wasn't much of a difference with regards to the bluetooth.

Successor to the RX-V681 is RX-V781.

Additions to 781 are:
  • Atmos/DTS:X
  • All six HDMI inputs are HDCP 2.2 compatible (only three on the 681)
  • Phono input with pre-amp.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately in Texas and amazon taxes here. Tax of $30 kills the deal. Plus it says Used.

This is an amazing receiver. I bought it last month for the same price to replace my 10 year-old Yamaha HT-R series. I love it!
