$800 + free s/h with code MARCHMAD


Main difference between this and RX-2080 is that this unit has 1 year less of warranty. the rest, such as features, power, speaker support, components, as far as I can tell based off specs, is identical.

Seems strange to have a manufacturer, who has run the 8xx/10xx/20xx/30xx series for about a decade to suddenly add a "5" sub model and cut the warranty in half 65% of the way through the model "life". If it was made for Costco or something I would get it; this seems fishy to me. Either a huge lack of sales on this unit or a known problem IMO, and I have owned 6 Yamaha receivers over the past 20 years so not a Yamaha hater/troll.

Could be totally fine and a great price, might be worth extending the warranty at time of purchase which will be much less than the 2080 in price.

Im not sure why you go in every single AVR thread and keep pretending it has to be one or the other. Just a FYI, you can buy BOTH good speakers and a good reciever.

I've been looking at receivers for a while now to replace an Onkyo that's been flagging. This is a great deal on an upper-end unit and I bit. Best as I can tell from multiple sources, the V2085 is the same as the A2080 save the middle support leg and 1 year shorter warranty.

I also ran into this forum post on audioholics: https://forums.audioholics.com/fo...85.112237/ One of the posters claims they talked to a friend at Yamaha and the reason for the model change is they see a lot of business from big box and online retail stores (like Adorama). Per his source, in the V2085 they cheaped up on some of the build materials (like removing the middle support leg) and shortened the warranty, but it's basically the same unit. 3rd party info, so take it with a grain of salt, but from all the research I've done, it stacks up; same front, same back, same remote, same internals, same feature set.

There's not much information about this model. It's seems very similar to the RX-A2080 but that is there Aventage series which is supposedly more high end. I'm not sure exactly what makes it better. I'm going to look into this a little further.

I guess you have to checkout to see price? Will this code work on anything else, need something sub 500.

I have the 3060 and it's the best receiver I've ever owned.

I didnt see this one at costco, but your idea is right. It's simply a custom modem made for a specific store...

So what's the consensus then? I've had my eye on the RX-A2080 since it's release, but was hoping to find it sub $1000. If this is exactly the same minus 1 year of warranty it seems like a great deal overall.

I see this has 4 zones. Are there any docs on how those work? I'm trying to find an amp that can drive 2 x 8 ohm speakers in 4 separate rooms in my house, and maybe even home theater set-up in the living room.

Right now, I have Yamaha HTR 6130 which just has zone A and zone B.

Can anyone comment about those features?

The owners manual for the 2080 (which appears to be the same) is here. It explains how the 4 zones may be used. There are limitations.

900 for a receiver... Why not spending the dollar on speakers?
I would agree with this but it depends on the speakers you have now. Speakers have much more influence than a receiver does on your sound.
Unfortunately so many times you read on here people believe this nice receiver will magically convert those budget speakers into great ones.
This is all subjective so that's very easy to do and if that's their belief, that is all that counts.

It depends. If you have the money for both nice speakers and a great receiver, why not get both? If you have a need for the features that this receiver offers, you have to spend the money on it. I have a 1070, and it's been great so far. My last receiver (a Sony) lasted over 15 years. If this one goes 10 years, that's pretty good to me.
