I just noticed this in the new Best Buy ad, and it seems like a decent deal. I'm very happy with my current Pioneer Elite receiver, but I'll need to upgrade when I make the jump to 4K and HDR at some point. This price matches the lowest on Amazon (currently $400). It's not the most powerful but should be fine for the majority of setups.

Some specs: 7.2Ch, 4xHDMI, Wifi/BT, Airplay/DLNA

Appears to be available online and B&M if you have a Magnolia store.

7.2 means 2 subs or 2 Atmos? Is Atmos limited to 5.1.2?

found it: does 7.2 in Dolby TrueHD / DTS: MA mode, or 5.2.2 in Dolby Atmos / DTS: X mode. In other words, it supports 7 speakers and 2 subwoofers.

this is why we can't have nice things

all these comments. all are about useless features and inputs

none are about sound quality

this is why modern receivers have went to shit

I bought and returned 5he Sony str-dn1080, Denon avrx3400h, and a Yamaha rx-a2070. This receiver is my favorite of the 4 and the one I kept. I don't care about the extra inouts, 2nd zone, or the extra two channels the Yamaha had. Out of the box and after calibration this receiver sounded the best to me and required the least amount of tinkering. I love it.

4 inputs in bad but as far as a solid 7.2 you can't find something any cheaper. I just bought my Yamaha RX-V681 7.2 for $300 & I LOVE it 😍

Amazon warehouse. They only had like four. Just got really lucky. I wish I would've had the money to get 2.

It was also a deal during BF this year at Amazon, same price for new. They do the next model year of this Yamaha receiver every year for $300 on Amazon. I also got the 681 (on BF), pretty happy with it so far.

Can't I just use an HDMI signal splitter, and use one for the audio, and another directly to my tv?
Would it effect the HDMI handshake DRM?
What if there was no DRM?

Denon

For me, Only when you get into the elites that have the digital amps does it get harder to choose between the 2 brands

I have this. Sounds better then the yamaha adventage it replaced. Sounds "fuller". It's all preference but can't say any receiver is bad.
