One thing Yamaha has going for it that you can't get with most other brands (except Denon with HEOS) is built in MusicCast. This is exactly like Sonos, only built into the receiver. You can add any MusicCast product (like speakers, soundbars, or more receivers) anywhere in your house and wirelessly stream to any MusicCast product sources connected to the AVR! http://www.yamaha.com/US/MusicCast/

The other cool thing is Bi-Directional Bluetooth. You can stream Bluetooth OUT to other things like BT headphones and BT speakers. Every other brand of AVR sold WILL NOT do this! So these things will set Yamaha apart from the competition!

Great value from Yamaha. DTS:X, Atmos, Wi-Fi, Airplay, MusicCast, 7 channels. This receiver has it all and I would recommend it to anyone needing a new one. Smilie

Found the same receiver (just model # for Costco) for $270 from online authorized dealer http://www.accessories4less.com/m...660/1.html
that's a refurb, same 1 yr warranty which is curious.

in general, yes. good number of bells and whistles. hdmi 2.2, bluetooth, wifi, 7.2, cast, dts:x, decent power output. my only grief is 4 hdmi inputs. dont know about you but I need more than that. I can see myself picking this up as secondary unit, dining roomor hallway or outdoor but not for entertainment center.

accessories4less is a good site. Refurb is fine with me, not with some others. Just know what you are getting. 5.1 is also still good for me (12x10 room). 7.1 or 7.2 really needs a larger space (although I would be interested in Atmos.

Aventage is Yamaha's premiere line. It is supposed to be made with better components, I'd stick with that if you picked one up.

looks like the 660 deal is dead. The TSR-5810, RX-V581, and RX-A660 are all the same exact receiver. The only benefit of the RX-A660 is a slightly longer warranty http://faq.yamaha.com/us/en/article/audio-visual/aventage/rx-a660_u/11055/9222/?current_page_id=1&so... [yamaha.com]

I think you are referring to the HDCP 2.2, not HDMI? The HDCP 2.2 issue has been debated now for years and is still a non factor in the huge majority of cases because there is still no real media supporting it.

It is now years later since this debate started and still have yet to come into play as a main stream need. I predicted 2-3 years ago it would be at least 5 years . and the clock is still ticking.

Definitely go with Yamahas! I own many, from the older RX-V677, RX-V777, RX-A840 and RX-A750 to name a few. I have been a Yamaha fan for decades and they have never disappointed. Smilie

no. this unit has 4 hdmi inputs period. meaning if you have a cable box, a ps4, an xbox, an htpc, you cant plug anything else any more. which is ok for a lot of people.
hdmi 2.2 is the standard, not yet the norm but good to have going forward.

If you had more then 4 HDMI sources run them into the TV directly and let ARC (Audio Return Channel) send the sound back to the receiver. Usually a way around most of these things.

I think you're confusing hdmi 2.0 with hdcp 2.2. They have different purposes as seen here http://www.audioholics.com/hdtv-f...0-hdcp-2.2, but luckily this receiver has both so probably a moot point.

How's the SQ on these?
I've been through a couple of Denons, and Panasonic's in the past. They sounded muddled compared to my Marantz.
Just looking for something that sounds great for a basic 5.1 setup, with my Pioneer speakers.
Do not need hdmi, audusey, networking,
Yeah, and I'm cheap, so refurbed seems like a good choice.

I have had issues with ARC passing PS4 properly (7.2 audio) back down to my older Yamaha receiver. Comes out as stereo regardless of settings and I have spent hours. I run PS4 direct to TV with optical to my receiver which works well.
