Similar feature set. Pioneer has 6 HDMI inputs (3 are HDCP 2.2) while the Yamaha has 4 HDMI inputs which are all HDCP 2.2.

Both are 7.2 receivers, have Atmos and DTS:X. Both also have 3 year warranty.

Pioneer has a phono input, Yamaha has bluetooth transmit and receive.

Take your pick based on feature set you need.

Only three HDMI ports are HDCP 2.2 compatible. That's my only hang-up. Great price otherwise.

I bought this from Best Buy and today is the last day to return. And apparently, after 4 days of getting Frys emails, they stopped sending them last Friday! Anybody NOT using their code and want to PM me?


Nevermind. Found it in Spam folder! Return to BestBuy happening now! 😀

I am not saying this to sound like a smarta$$ (sometimes typed words don't convey what we mean).....

How many HDCP 2.2 compatible devices do you have?

I am a gadget freak and have more TVs and full on surround systems than I care to admit. Now having said that...On my 4K TVs I only have 1 HDCP2.2 device connected. An XBox One S.

I could have 2, but the second potential device is a DirecTV 4K RVU client (uses an app on the TV instead of a physical box) which doesn't use an input on my receiver.

I am just curious. Is it for future proofing?

Get it and ask questions later right?
However, his is a crazy low price for an elite model.
I haven't researched this at all. Is this anything like the Elite vsx-43 deal a couple of years ago? It was a trash receiver that they threw the "elite" badge on. Everybody and their mother was trying to get rid of it.

I don't have this specific model. I have an LX-701 and LX-301 (which are from the same 2016 series of the Elite receivers) and both of those work great with 4K HDR (HDR10 at least, we'll see about Dolby Vision once it appears on discs) content.

I also have a 2015 VSX-90. It claims to be compatible but I have issues with HDR content. I talked to Pioneer a few months back and they said that they are aware of the issues and are working on a firmware update. That was months ago so I am a little disappointed as I haven't heard squat from them.

IMO, this is a fantastic receiver at $250. It is pretty good at $400. It offers compatibility with all of the latest technologies (including Atmos). I expect the amp section to be similar to their VSX-45 from last year. It is adequate. It will be powerful enough to listen to at loud levels without a ton of distortion. (Unless you have very inefficient speakers).

It even offers a phono input which is crazy at this price.

I also have a VSX-44 and a VSX-45. I have them in spare bedrooms and I have zero issues with them.

if you buy two can you do 14.4.4 ?
Only if you bridge them and turn on SLI.

I've got an SC-85 in my livingroom. Ceilings are 20 foot and no plans to get the reflective ATMOS speakers... so although I'd have ATMOS with either receiver, I have no real need for it.

I'm powering Polk Audio Monitor 70s / 30s / CS1 in a 5.1 config. The only reason I'd even consider going to this is for ONE of the HDCP 2.2 outputs as I have a 4K UHD player. Currently, I'm just running an HDMI directly from the player to my TV and a second HDMI from the player to my TV for audio.

Don't think it's worth the hassle of selling mine and losing a LOT of power just so I don't have to run an extra cable. Agree?
