There are so many options. A lot of it comes down to personal preference. Over the years I've collected a little bit of everything out there. My advice is to spend the majority of your budget on speakers and subwoofer. Try to find some local hifi stereo shops and see what sounds best to YOU. Bring some cd's or whatever way you listen to music and see what you like. The speakers will make all the difference in your system. As far as a receiver, any of the offerings from Denon, Marantz, or Yamaha should sound similar and work well for you. Personally I don't consider Sony, Pioneer, Onkyo to be in the same league from receivers.

From what i've read, the 2080 and 2085 is basically the same receiver except the 2085 has 1 year less warranty and no fifth foot.

1250 is 50 less than lowest price yet. Anyone disagree and not likely to be refresh on higher end models from Yamaha for 2019 as well as prepro cx-a5200

Honestly man this is the exact same question I have. It'd be great to know if it'll even have it as this model should have had it, but didn't.

From what i read they should be announcing or releasing the newer model with update hdmi toward the end of this year. Im trying to hold on to it unless there is a really crazy deal that you cant miss. And then just buy a newer one layer on when the mainstream have hdmi 2.1

I posted it but it got no love. FYI, a780 is also on sale at $398.
https://slickdeals.net/f/13132360-yamaha-receiver-rx-a1080-698-tax-and-rx-a780-398-tax-fry-s?attrsrc...

I had ordered the 1080 at Fry's but will cancel it and instead got v2085. Fry's charge tax in CA so the difference is not even $50 for me. I was expecting Frys to have in-store 20% off promotion from Fri-Mon this week as they have done so for a few past weeks, but it wasn't the case this Friday.

Adorama seems to randomly give free 1-year VIP360 membership that gives you free 2 days shipping, more flexible return policy and etc. How I got it is I added v2085 to the cart, and proceeded to the page asking shipping address, go back to previous page, and then there was the offer pop-up of free VIP360 and free shoprunner membership for spending more than $450 at adorama. This is the offer detail but you need to get the pop-up to give your email address to enjoy it.

If you are already a shoprunner member, don't give the email address registered to them because they will reject you as an existing member. That happened to me and the pop-up never came back on my phone, so I tried the same procedure on another phone which worked. That time I gave my spare email address. That is okay even if it is different from your email address registered to Adorama.

Yeah even if the new version comes out soon it'd still be crazy expensive for a while, so might as well do the same and get this one and just rock it for a while, then try and resell it after I upgrade later. Thanks for the help.
