Yamaha TSR-5790 Receiver (RX-V579 Replica) $390 ($360 Now) at Costco

+14 Deal Score
56,966 Views
RX-V579's lowest price has been $500 so far, if you factor the free speakers bundled with newegg deal worth $50 (MSRP $80), $450, this makes it a good deal at $390 (10/31/2015: $360), plus add'l year of warranty with AmEx plus the generous return policy of Costco. It's the latest generation with hdcp 2.2 and hdmi 2.0 with everything except Atmos and Analog to Digital upconversion.

I realize you need to have membership.

Here is the full comparison (I managed to add more than the limit of 5 that website is giving us by manually adding codes to URL) including the budget 377 and 477 that has been FP several times at price range of $175 for 377 and $250 for 477.

While that's a good unit, it seems like a lot of people value hdcp 2.2 for some reason. Also 5 series adds more on top of 4 series. You can get 479 for $350 to $400 so this is basically a free upgrade from 479 to 579.

477 has Ethernet, but no wifi or bluetooth if that's important.

You can check more here:

I don't think you can make that direct comparison between the two and consider this a "bad price".
(477 has been on top of my list, watching to catch it for $200 level, did not dip that low so far, if it does I'd grab one for sure)

Is it just need or does the back panel look like it only has one HDCP 2.2 input

Saw this while I was at the Costco yesterday. They were still in the box on the pallet boxes and none were opened for the Display. I am hoping one day they will run some discount on these where in they take off anywhere between $30 to $80 off the way they did for V7xx series.

This falls under their unlimited return policy, so yes technically you could return it if it died in 3 years.

I've been eyeing this receiver, as it's a great deal for a 2015 Yamaha model. The only downside is that for a 7.2 receiver, this lacks the Atmos/DTS:X upgrades that a lot of other manufacturers have on their receivers in the same price range. The Denon s710w is a pretty close comparison to this Yamaha at $430 this week, and it supports those new sound formats as well as having all HDCP 2.2 ports, unlike the Yamaha. The Yamaha's have great reliability and sound, but they lack value in the features category.

One plus to this model, if you're doing 5.2 + zone B on this model (instead of 7.2), zone B mirrors the main zone and can use HDMI unlike a lot of "zone 2" receivers in the <$1000 range.

This might be considered Electronics which falls under 90 days return policy. Honestly if it falls under unlimited return policy, I'd definitely buy it for that return policy alone. The reason I haven't bought other models like $180 to $225 receivers from Amazon deals was mainly because I was worried about receivers not working properly after the initial return period or after the 1st year warranty period. This is actually a very solid receiver, and it's made in Malaysia Yamaha plant whereas lower models are made in sub-contracted factories in China.

I spoke to someone at my local Costco who said this was not under their electronics return policy. She said the 90-day policy applies to electronics with a screen. This seems to echo what is listed on their website:

Quote :
Electronics: Costco will accept returns within 90 days from the date of purchase for Televisions and Projectors, Computers, Touchscreen Tablets, Cameras, Camcorders, MP3 players and Cellular Phones.
I agree, a return policy like Costco's is like having a free extended warranty. On the other hand, I'd doubt you'd need it with a Yamaha anyways. You'd probably want to replace the thing before it crapped out.

I always wonder what parts / features of the unit has been cost cut to meet the cost constraints of a single retailer model #.

The only thing I can see that is different between this and the retail model is that this one doesn't list "Music Cast" in the spec comparison page.
The back seems to be identical, but here is the back of the unit at Costco, if you'd like to compare against 579:

That sounds amazing but when you return there, doesn't costco ask "did you contact manufacturer first)? Or do you just tell them "this crapped out, please swap with a new one"? In that case, what's the point of getting warranty? I know many people take advantage of Costco's return, I see people returning fans and A/C units at end of summer and get heaters, then return those at the end of winter.. It's a shame really, I am not sure if costco keeps tab on those people, but I hope it does.
