If you bought it in person, they'll do it in the warehouse without blinking. If you bought online, Costco.com has a link where you can submit a price adjustment for anything bought within the past 30 days. That takes a bit longer (took mine 4 days), but it went through no problem.

Same here. Got the Klipsch reference set @ 5.2.1 from Costco as well and I'm amazed at the surround but still a bit underwhelmed with Atmos upfiring speakers. All in all a B+.

I got this on the big sale several months ago, I've had problems playing anything out of my Zone 2 , I haven't looked into it to much as my zone 2 is backyard. Anybody else have issues with this ? With my old Onkyo that bit the dust due to the over heating chip issues I would just hit zone 2 and level and it was playing.

I'm also not totally impressed with most of the settings being on the tiny LCD screen vs HDMI out to the tv, why they don't use a 55+ tv to display features vs the tiny LCD screen is odd, unless I'm missing something.

For the price, this is a pretty decent receiver. Mine has no issues, but I'm also not running anything hdmi 2.1 etc. I guess it's worth the price if you really need a new receiver with the promise of fixes to the known issues.

My old onkyo receiver finally gave up the second time even after I re-soldered new capacitors onto the HDMI board about 3 years ago. Since it was 1080p standard, I wanted to upgrade to 4k. This receiver fit the bill because I wanted to experience 4k with atmos before I take a dive into more expensive receivers. Since no other receivers are really out this year that don't have hdmi 2.1 issues (panasonic chip), then this is the cheapest option to have that experience if they do fix the hdmi 2.1 issues.

For $330 it's worth a gamble to see if they fix the issues, or if you aren't running 4k/120hz quite yet.

If you don't need 4k 120Hz or 8k 60Hz this is probably the best value in a receiver right now, providing you can live with it's quirks.

I don't currently have this unit (still debating), but I've read on multiple occasions that you can run through setup by connecting to the IP Address of the receiver on your local network.

I puled this from a Reddit [reddit.com] post: "You can access all the settings via web browser. Just type in the IP address of your AVR /Setup, and have it all on your computer screen. Helps avoid using the weak menu system. Example http://192.168.55.555/Setup"

Or they just sweep it under the rug and make a 2021 model.
Definitely this is the option they go with. I got one of the first 4k receivers and it had a ton of bugs that never really got fixed and once the new model comes out they don't care about the old one anymore.

100% this! I was definitely afraid of being stuck with a dud and returned it too. I just don't have any faith that Yamaha would open a big recall and repair/replace a faulty chip in the receiver if that's the only way to fix the problem. That's bound to cost over $100 per receiver with shipping costs (unless the consumer will be expect to shoulder some of the shipping costs) and would they do that for a $340 dollar receiver? They said they'll fix it but didn't say guarantee a no cost fix. And notice there's been no new press releases for 2 months.

There's a reason its a blow out price....

Another aspect to this is that I don't think there was any QA done on this receiver so it's difficult to have faith in Yamaha.

I bought one in November and it came with a note to update the firmware right away, which I did, but there were still a ton of issues with eArc sound cutting out or switching inputs randomly. Does no one use this receiver before they produce and ship it? Are there other problems with longevity that they failed to detect in their rush to ship the unit? There's literally hundreds of people who noted those issues within days of using it. Even if they've fixed those issues now, its clear they shipped the product without much testing at all and I didn't sign up for the Yamaha beta program. They knew it was unreliable when they shipped.... that's why they included a note to update the firmware.

most tech products these days require a day 1 firmware update (ie. PS5, Xbox, WiFi routers, etc). But the fact that even a day 1 update didn't fix usability issues with this receiver is what's pissing ppl off.

For sure! It's hard to explain to my wife that we have this great new receiver that drops the audio every couple hours and requires you to restart it. Gets old....fast.

If the state of the firmware for the device has any correlation to the effort they put into the hardware, you're going to be disappointed!

I don't hate Yamaha - I use one of their other AV receivers daily - but this was a disappointment.

I have the Yamaha, I really hate that it's an on screen menu only. Can't make major adjustments using the LCD on the unit. I have to turn the TV on and to the specific input
You can use the web interface xxx.xxx.xx.xx/setup (replace x's with the ip address of your receiver) and put it in a web browser. I think you can also use the mobile app but I have not got there. I just got mine last week and have not had time to dive into the nitty griddy yet.

I only have 2 speakers, I know this is a big overkill but I couldn't really find any decent 2 channel receivers anyways. Would you recommend to buy this?

I purchased at my local Costco for the same price back in Nov. The Yamaha AVR runs at least 6-8 hours everyday in our household with no issues whatsoever.

Yamaha TSR-700 AVR (currently on firmware 1.26)
LG CX 65" OLED (currently on firmware 3.21.09)
Xfinity XG1v4 4K STB
Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray player
Zeskit 8K high speed HDMI cables all the way around

Definitive Technology ProSub 800
Klipsch Quintet SL 5.0 Speakers

Logitech Harmony One Remote
You may get asked this a lot, however I'm curious if you have experienced any burn in issues with the OLED?
