There's a Costco Yamaha thread from November...with 195 comments. That's when the Costco one was on sale for $400.

I checked it out at the time and the Costco one had these advantages over the 685:

Differences for more expensive Costco one versus 685 are:
- Total Purity Concept
- Anti Resonance Technology
- Advanced Foundational Design
- Aluminum Front Panel - shield from noise and electronic radiation
- Symmetrical Power Amplifier

The RX-A780 appears to have same specs as the Costco one (TSR-7850). The RX-A780 is Yamahas Aventage line....which is their top tier. The 685 is considered a lower tier than the Aventage line. Very similar specs though.

Back at that time I searched and found that the RX-V685 could on occasion be found on sale for around $330......I have no recollection from where.

Bottom line, the Costco one appears to be slightly better with the differences as noted above.

Be prepared for issues, particularly HDMI. I stay away from Onkyo

I have not bought a receiver in a few years. For the money, you all think this is solid huh? Also, I am looking to get an LG OLED C9 soon. Are there any issues with this and the C9? I suppose I should ask, is there anything this receiver can't do which the C9 would need? Thanks.

I got my limitation questions answered by this article. Hmm, wait for full 2.1 or perhaps it isn't an issue since eARC is available?
