You should go with Yamaha, it is reliable and well trusted. Amp power is overly exaggerated, get a subwoofer and crossover the low frequency at 80hz. Set your speakers to "small". This frees up the amplifier in the receiver as bass is handled by the sub. You will not need anymore power than what these amps can provide. For a 5.1 system, go with the a770 or a870 aventage. Don't pay more than what you need. Even the a760 last year will pass through hdr and 4k with Atmos/dts:x.

Well, not bad prices but not great. When Yamaha came came out with the Aventage rx-a3010, I picked up the rx-3000 for $900 from Newegg. Love the sound it produces, you will not go wrong buying a Yamaha!!

AVRs confuse the hell out of me even after doing research, as a tech-savvy person. I want someone to point me at the best sounding 5.1 system with a powerful amp that does 4k HDR and call it a day. :/

Ideally you should goto to a store or ideally a friends house and listen to their system. I have a Yamaha RX-A1000 and Klipsch speakers and I couldn't be happier. I listen all music Country, EDM, Rock etc the sound is warm and bright with good base. HDTV and Movies are great as well. I use Zone 2 for 2 Klipsch speakers outside instead of 7.1. Overall I couldn't be happier. I even got a cheap Yahama for my basement setup.

The aX50 series will handle 4k hdr as well

It doesn't exist. It' like car extras and packages. You want navigation, you also gotta pay for the leather seats etc.

With that said, look at 1070 or even 970. But again, power goes down.

Yeah, my comment comes from a place of frustration with all these choices. I have 4 LS50s and 2 subs, and my current old 1080p receiver sounds ok, but it's hooked up via optical and obviously doesn't do 4K to my OLED. Doesn't help that audiophiles have wildly different opinions on what constitutes good sound. TVs are easy by comparison.


Thanks for the advice, guys.

I've been wanting a 4k pre amp only, or a processor with balanced outputs atleast, "affordable". Say $1000. No one makes one in that price range.

Separates would be ideal. The idea that I need to throw out the amp section with an all-in-one every time I get a new TV is kind of insane to me, so I looked into getting a beefy amp and just throwing on a new processor every few years. Problem is that separates are a boutique purchase, and they often separately cost as much as one good all in one.

Honestly if you're not going for something like Atmos, just stick with that, let your TV handle all of the audio output to the receiver, and get a separate HDMI 2.0 switch for your devices if your TV doesn't have enough inputs.

If all you care about is 5.1, use solutions that don't put your receiver in the HDMI input path at all, and you'll be fine for as long as you're satisfied with its audio quality.

I say this as someone who bought herself a Marantz 6011 this past summer to be able to do 7.1.4 atmos (using a secondary class D amp for the rear heights): Don't make things more complicated than you need them to be for what you want to achieve. If all you want is 5.1 audio, then optical is FINE, and the key becomes no longer routing ANY video through your receiver at all in order to stop worrying about related issues.

As a bonus, many of the early HDMI receivers were notorious for having HDMI board issues. Not running HDMI on an older receiver is likely to lengthen its lifespan.

As recommended by Maximus get Costco Yamaha 7810 and use it as a pre/pro, add a good amp from either outlaw audio 7140 or monolith 7. You'll be happy .
A good all in one solution is probably denon x7200wa on sale for 1800, very nice avr.
For anyone looking at 3070 it received a mediocre review by whathifi for harsh treble.
