Dont flame me as i'm total newb and no nothing bout audio though like tech so this may save me hours of reading!
Chrrently I have a Sony surround sound dvd system (Dav z something)
I have had this sometime however never use the dvd function.
If I was to buy this Amp. Would I be able to plug my existing 5.1 speakers into the back. My Sky Hd and PS4 and then get better sound quality?
Or
Have I missed the point and this is to control better bought seperate speakers?
The reason I ask is that I have already gone around the room with the speaker wires lifting the carpet and also havinv difficulties with a splitter getting sound from sky to surround.
So my thinking is I could unplug the main DVD unit. Plug everything into this ans then nkt have to keep getting uo swapping HDMI cables and optical cables?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
If you have the Sony DAV-Z260 unfortunately the simple answer is no.
I had one of those years ago and from memory the speakers have plugs on them which are specific to your receiver, you could remove the plugs but the speakers wouldn't be doing the Yam receiver any justice.
Also I think the Sub for your Sony receiver is a passive unit, you would therefore have to buy a new active sub.
Thanks Matt, it's exactly that model. Just looked behind, you're right, they are plugs.
I tried to get read into amps, but the whole ohms amps and matching speakers and amps together got a little confusing for now.
Just can't get Sky HD to work with splitter (though all other devices do)
What sound setup do you have now? Is it loads better?
I always liked the Sony I have, as I like to use the mic for auto setup and calabiration. Saw this as one too.
Not in such a rush at min and may also be best just to go to the professionals or Richer Sounds and buy amp and speakers together. Not heard better than my Sony surround (apart from cinema) so not missing out on much, but think I'm ready to treat myself to something new if it's worth the jump!?

I liked that old system, I replaced it with an LG Bluray all in one about 5 years ago (Maybe more) and it wasn't anywhere near as good as the Sony, the speakers were feather light compared to the Sony's and the Bass was non-existent!

I now have a Denon AV-RX2200W, Monitor Audio BX2's front and back, Monitor Audio Bronze centre and a BK Gemini II sub. It's not the final word in home AVR, it's more a mix of solid and good value items, but it is a massive step up both in terms of quality and price from your current setup.

If you're happy with the Sony producing audio that's acceptable and enjoyable to you and you don't want to spend £700+ on a new AVR & speakers then I would suggest sticking with what you have and trying to solve your HDMI issue.

I had a quick google and it looks like Sky HD boxes aren't too keen on passive splitter's, that might be your problem? If yours isn't powered you could try one of these - HDMI splitter

HDMI should produce better audio than optical, however if optical is the only option you could also use a splitter. Nothing fancy needed just a basic one like this - Optical Switch Just get the cheapest you can find, they're a very simple device.

If you do look to upgrade then definitely get yourself into the audio video shops in your area for a demo, they're normally very accommodating and understand that you're parting with a hefty wedge of cash.

Does anyone know roughly when the 2017 line ups will be released?
As for the HDMI 2.1 and eARC; would they make any difference to those who don't have Atmos?

Beginning of May.
I have the RXV481D, so a model or 2 above this one, but just wondering if anyone is using this amp or similar with Arc on a Samsung TV? I have a couple of issues:

When watching Netflix on the TV (Samsung app) the audio drops out randomly for a split second which is very annoying. Watching other apps, or the TV itself is fine (e.g Freeview, iPlayer etc). Netflix works fine if I set audio passthrough to PCM, but then you're losing Dolby D. Anyone noticed that?

Also, after an update, when watching content coming from the TV (i.e Netflix) the display now says "Broadcast". I swear before the update (or before I changed a setting) it was saying something else. Am I going crazy or has something changed?

This is exactly what I've been after... except, it looks odd with a curved TV so I decided to go for a Samsung bar. I'm sure this is better though and not a bad price. Have some heat!
I been eyeing this up along with a few other options for the last few weeks as Mrs Loyal is not budging on allowing me to rig up the old set-up with multiple speakers around the lounge in our new house

This will most likely go cold as people will say it was cheaper at turn of the year but that was then and this is now so a decent price it is thus heat from the Chas

It would have to drop to well south of 600 quid for me to change my mind on what I have now decided on. Saying that seeing I've seen this has had two drops twice in a week now that may come sooner rather than later.

Some speaker recommendations at a reasonable cost compared to the cost of this unit?
For me the denon didn't sound as good when I tested it with my speaker set up so returned it for this, yes okay it has less hdmi Inputs but all are 4k hdcp 2.2 compatible, if you have more than 4 sources then I see why the denon wins but for me I only have 3 sources so why get extra ports I'm not going to use.

Musicast is brilliant too, denons app doesn't come close to the yamaha

Great price. Gutted as bought the RXV581 yesterday :/
What does the 681 have that's worth the extra money?
4K upscaling, slightly higher power output, 2 extra HDMI inputs, component input, phono input.

don't 4k tv's already upscale? don't think I need the other inputs

Any ideas of how this compares to the Denon avr-2300x? Both similar in price...
Richer Sounds just made my mind up for me; they dropped the price of the Denon AVRX2300W to £349. Trigger pulled.
Deal posted here.

Let us know what you think. Last 10 years I've had 5 AV receivers. 3x Yamaha, 1x Sony and 1 Onkyo. All similar spec throughout the years.

The Onkyo was beyond awful. Tinny sound, extremely poor interface and customisation. Not to mention an onslaught of bugs. The Sony was okay, but Yahama has always been the winner for me.

But this Denon has so many more features than 681, it simply must be considered. It also has great reviews. So let us know.

So happy to see 4K and HDR support is now entry level! Still holding out for second hand or open box stuff, but what excellent prices recently.
Great price for an HDR/HDCP 2.2 capable av unit, got the 481 and it sounds amazing!
Stupid question... I've got an old Samsung HT-C5900 system. would I be able to use this receiver in conjunction with my current speakers, then upgrade the speakers at a later date? Reason for wanting to upgrade for 4K compatibility.

I'd wait for it to go below £650
This was £650 almost everywhere December until January and I was so tempted but held off then suddenly BAM £899 everywhere. I missed my chance previously but cannot bring myself to buy for anymore than £650 previous price. By the time this hits my sweet spot again possibly better will be on the market... hurry up and make this £650 again or I'll buy your successor :{

anybody know the best soundbar to get for no more then £200? just bought the ue55ks7000 so need something to go with this. have no idea about sound systems etc so any help would be appreciated
If you dont mind second hand, you can occasionally get a real bargain. I have seen several Samsung HW-F751 & H751's go for circa £150 since Christmas. Absolute steal.

hmm guess (other than shiny modern things) this would be a downgrade from the rxv765 ?
Probably. Unless you need UHD support. Atmos.
Yeah want uhd, but not enough to take a step backwards on sound. No rush, will keep an eye out for something higher end. This looks a decent deal though!

You never know unless you heard them side by side. Yours has slightly more power from what i can see but as you know, that's not everything. I'd have a demo if tempted to upgrade (sidegrade, downgrade)? oO

At the moment I have 2 tower speakers (Celestion F3) but I replaced the speakers myself. Each box has a 5" speaker, 5" woofer. and a tweeter. Current setup only has good volume but not so good bass. In stereo mode? does it mean it won't have the 5.1 sound? I also have an old 10 band equaliser, but does not have any big effect.

An extra £70 gets you a AV Rec with Dolby Atmos. Much better sound quality.http://www.richersounds.com/product/av-receivers/onkyo/txsr444/onky-tx-nr444-blk
Much better sound quality? Yamaha receivers are pretty much as good as it gets if you listen to music, movies are pretty great as well, my Monitor Audio GX200 don't complain. Then, I'm using a more expensive yamaha amp, what I'm saying is, if you want a basic av amplifier, this is really great, the sound quality will be excellent, grab yourself some bookshelf speakers and you have a very nice everyday setup WAAAAAY better than a soundbar! (way louder too!) Atmos at this price point is pointless, I'm a little biased as I'm not a fan of the onkyos either, harsh sound and silly name. haha
There will be AV input and sound level knobs on the amp, I don't see a particular need to have more, the remote can do quite a bit. Changing to this amp to get an increase in Bass probably won't do what you are after, the system will have some setup options for speaker assignment and size, but what you probably need is a subwoofer. This will plug into the amp and give you the bass you require. There are EQ settings on the AMP as well, I find most of them useless, your mileage may vary, above all, it depends what speaker setup you currently have, crappy speakers and a £10,000 amp won't make them sound any better.
For music specifically, you'll want to set the amp to Stereo - regardless of your speaker setup, with a woofer, the sound will come out your left and right speakers and the bass part on your woofer. One thing to check in the menus of this amp is the "crossover frequency" this tells the amp at what sound frequency to send those signals to your woofer, instead of to your speakers. Always set your speakers to "small" when using a woofer.
Hope this helps. the TL:DR is if you want bass, get a subwoofer. Or tell me what speakers you currently have.

erm... I think I might have confused you..
.
All av amps have a "music mode" which is basically stereo - it's the best way to listen to MUSIC. So 2.0 or 2.1 if you have a subwoofer. You can of course use 5.1 anytime you wish. Just typically, 2.0 or 2.1 is best for music to most people. But yes if you want, you can use 5.1 - if you have enough speakers. I don't know about equalizers that much as I've never had use of one. If you have the celestion f3, they are floorstand speakers, get a subwoofer like this...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bowers-Wilkins-B-W-ASW-500-Powered-Active-Home-Cinema-Subwoofer-Loudspeaker-/112345236258?hash=item1a284c4322:g:kUUAAOSwLEtYmKyc

with the amp - set it up and tell it you have a subwoofer (set your speakers to small remember) and you're golden.. plenty of bass. You seem like you should know more about this stuff than you do if you've been changing speakers in cabinets... if you want more information I can try and answer your questions but you are probably best going into richer sounds yourself and talking to the people there, in my experience they are always friendly and helpful.

For music specifically, you'll want to set the amp to Stereo - regardless of your speaker setup, with a woofer, the sound will come out your left and right speakers and the bass part on your woofer. One thing to check in the menus of this amp is the "crossover frequency" this tells the amp at what sound frequency to send those signals to your woofer, instead of to your speakers. Always set your speakers to "small" when using a woofer.

Hope this helps. the TL:DR is if you want bass, get a subwoofer. Or tell me what speakers you currently have.

Amazon now same price on this item in black
Looked at this a few weeks ago but ended up going for the Marantz nr1506. I love it, did cost £70 quid more though from RS. Worth considering.

Asthically I don't see why these boxes have to be so big! The Marantz is nice and slim, also plays my flacs directly from my Logitech Media Server so I sold my squeezebox kit.

Hey Azza, thanks for the quick response!

I assumed the line about no leads being included was referring to speaker, SW cables etc. That's fine as I have some cables but need the SW cable and plugs.

Really appreciate the info and for posting the links too. Great when people take the time to share a good deal and knowledge.

Glad your enjoying the system, will be ordering it this week.

Thanks for posting this.
Did anyone buy this?
Are there any leads missing that you would expect to be in the package as the website says no leads included?

hi,
i bought this back a few weeks ago, very impressed with it

It doesn't come with any leads, but all you need is speaker cable + a sub cable. It was my first time wiring up speakers myself but its very easy. Had it all up and running within an hour.

What i bought:

25M Speaker Cable (great quality) - £23.40
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0194WM2VO

3M Sub Cable: £5.49
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00CWZ01O6

Fisual Easy Fix Banana Plugs 24K Gold Plated - 10 Pack - £11.99
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00IE9HMH8

The banana plugs are not needed but make things easier

what's the difference between the v581 and v681?
the v681 is £399.


581 doesn't upscale but it does pass through 4k so if you have 4k source I. E Netflix 4k and 4k TV you'll be fine
MiahAM2013
v681 has 4K upscaling, v581 doesn't - so I wouldn't consider buying this.
Only 3x HDMI inputs are 2.2 - HDCP on v681 vs 4x 2.2 HDMI ports on the v581. Maybe enough for you?
The wattage per speakers is greater - v681 is 90w vs v581 is 80w.
To me what's important -
1. 4K upscaling.
2. v2.2 HDCP on all HDMI ports.
3. High wattage per speakers - will come handy when having a house party! With the radio playing on the AV or using the Android TV.X)
4. HDR.
5. DTS-X.
6. ATMOS.
7. Great headphones High fidelity support - supporting various virtual hi-fi environments - to keep Misses happy and me enjoying my ManCave. oO

Known issue with this model. The HDMI line in's go faulty due to a power issue. It works for a while but then fails so you have to use another line in which then goes faulty until you run out of line in's. Had to exchange lots in a very short period of time.

It is shameful and ironical, given that the town implied in the moniker is associated with one of the best universities around, but this guy could not even locate a local RS for some window shopping. LMFAO

So what makes this a good deal? I know yamaha make good stuff but what makes this better than others of similar price? I need an amp/reciever for my TV and blu ray player but no idea how much I should spend tbh.

I had the model above this and sold it. The bass was all over the place and it was nearly a rumble (I used to have REL so annoyingly any sub I buy will compared with that).
Use this with a quite top-endish Yamaha PianoBlack Micro-system for TV audio. Set at the right level, it gives subtle bass enhancement without sounding artificial. I paid £69 at Richer Sounds.

This is a great sub. I have one in my bedroom but you wont be annoying any neighbors with it. You will need to spend a least 5x this much to annoy the neighbous and at least 10x to have them coming around knocking on your door.

This was the old deal, maybe worth holding out until it's less than £100 again?

Not sure they're still producing these. The 106 is available in the US which is the same thing just with HDMI inputs. I asked Yamaha and they said they have no plans to release in the EU but with everyone only having a couple of units left it's probably coming soon.

Bought mine at Xmas for £170, needed a soundbar without a subwoofer to avoid annoying neighbors and i'm more than happy. I'm not an audiophile though.

Been looking at this model for a while but not yet bitten. Had a couple of very decent soundbars over the years but found them lacking even though reviews by so called "experts" raved about them. I have not heard this sound bar yet but have high hopes for it (fingers crossed it delivers) - it's only a matter of time before I bag one :{
From sevenoaks sounds, they price match richer sounds which was also down to 629

What do you want from a system? what do you think you might want it to do in the future? which of these systems best meet those requirements? eg if you want to have a multi-room system in the future can this be expanded? do you have specific size limitations? do you want to stream music through it and can it handle those formats? Not easy decisions.....you seem to get more for your money with the Yamaha (eg sub-woofer) but if it doesn't do what you want.....
PS the Sony slightly cheaper here

thanks mate. I am just looking at something for the TV and ps4.the Sony appealed to me due to the less space taken up and with if going with my current Sony 4k TV. Also my TV is in the corner of my room at an angle.I am not sure how that will affect the Yamaha sound projection..

I've got one of these and it's amazing, got it last year for £500 and it's the best money I've ever spent! Only downside is that the HDMI pass thoughts do not support HDCP 2.2 or HDR.
do you use it for game console also ? if yes, how is the experience ?


Hi Jean, I use it for movies, TV and Xbox one games and the sound is amazing! You do need a square room though.

Outstanding deal. Bought this today at Milton Keynes. I can confirm that this price is the same at ALL Costco's except Watford, Glasgow, Haydock, Cardiff and Croydon where it is a little more and stock is low.
This pack retails for £219 on Amazon, so £100 saving!
Lucky us then :) There was just a few of them available at MK. Hope you will enjoy yours!
Hi, just wondering did you get accessory pack with it too inside the box? Like carry strap, etc. Thanks
I will open this tonight, but I do not think it contains anything more than a guitar and amp.
Many thanks
Just guitar and amp. You would need guitar cable, strap, plectrums and case.
Thanks again, will be going my local costco to pick one up this morning (if available hopefully). If you do purchase those accessories, could you please direct me to where to buy from? Much appreciated
I would go straight to Amazon, all products are available there. Good 3m cable will cost you from £8, plenty of plectrums for £3, strap another £7-10 and go for a padded cover. There are some £5-7 job available, but it really is just a dust cover. A good one will cost you from £25.

Many thanks again
This does not come with any accessories. However, ask at the front for a guitar cable as they may have some available. I got one at MK. It might be in the box. Worth checking.


Unfortunately no accessories in box

Just to add an opinion from a full time guitar teacher, these are superb beginners guitars and will take you way beyond beginner level. I can't recommend them enough for the money. I've never found a better guitar for the budget. They're great value.

For the record i don't own any Yamaha guitars but these are just superb value so worthy of a positive comment before some numpty **** it

(I play PRS guitars myself)

These are great guitars.

The ones from the 1990's were exceptional.
Not available at this price. Needs expiring.
Got one of these a couple of years back from Amazon in the Xmas lightning sales. Somehow Amazon cocked the order up and applied some mystery discount so I ended up paying £25. Must dig it out again some time.

ps, how amazing it is to be able to tuck this keyboard under one arm & easily carry it up & down stairs- previous Clavinovas were the weight of a small elephant!


my back is killing me today after lugging a second hand Yamaha arius ydp 142 to my house and then finding the keys clackety and lugging it all the way back for a refund. wasted 6h driving and a sprained back on top of it.

Whilst it's nice to have a piano that sounds like a piano (most of them do a reasonable job) if you already play and you're serious about playing, you need to get something with the action / feel that seems right for you, which is why if you're spending any serious amount of money it's worth trying them out first.
I don't think anyone would buy an acoustic instrument without trying it first, and as there's a mechanical aspect to digital pianos I'd suggest the same here too.
I worked my way around Forsyths in Manchester (this was 14 years ago) but there are other places where you can do this.
And whilst we're at the 'I've done my Grade 8 willy waving club' - I'm with xeroc in that I'd be doing the exam on an acoustic instrument in preference too.
Couldn't agree more. I bought my Roland f100 about 12 years ago now and it was based purely on my personal preference having tried many many others and the feedback and weight of the keys was right for me. That said this is a good price for a mid range but I wouldn't be buying any piano, acoustic or digital without having tried them first. Yamaha acoustic grand was amazing but totally out of my budget (and you need a mansion to put it in!)
Amazon price has jumped to £488, same as all the other suppliers.

For those considering this and needing advice, this piano will suffice only to grade 3. After that, an upgrade will be required to a piano capable of articulating a wider range of dynamics/expression. You will also need to factor in the price of a stand, pedals ans stool. If you're serious about it then it may be better to spend a bit more to get one that won't need upgrading. These start around £600-£700 and Roland pianos tend to be superior to Yamaha.
I could not disgree more.
A friend of mine (very good pianist) wanted to spend up to £2,000 on a digital piano, like the money was burning a hole in his pocket.
I already had one of these so recommended it- he didn't believe me, so after trying out dozens of more expensive models in various music and piano stores, this was the one he bought.
I took my grade 8 when I was around 10 years old (now 45), studied up to master's degree in classical piano and this keyboard handles pretty much anything I throw at it. It handles an extremely wide range of dynamics/expression, that's why it's such a delight to play. That it's so portable is an added bonus.
Have you actually played this keyboard?!

I also have a grade 8 in piano. I own a Roland RD700NX and a Kawai VPC-1. I wouldn't want to have done my grade 8 exam on any of them!

I've got this soundbar.
Warning. The sub loses connection randomly if connected via Bluetooth.
Really annoying.

Other than the loss of connection if connected via Bluetooth how do you rate the system Andy? Performance wise?


It's ok. I expected a lot more to be honest. The sub isn't very boomy! But it's ok I guess.
I listened to it in Richer Sounds demo room
And it sounded fabulous. Maybe I'm just unlucky!!
My advice, go and test a few first.
I expected Yamaha to be miles better than lg, Sony etc. But not the case in my home. I could of bought a Sonos bar for a little bit more at the time. I think I gave 650 for mine so it's really dropped in price.

Good to see a genuine price drop after the constant stream of scammers listing these at £349

Yes very annoying, this was listed "lower" by about 10 companies with no feedback and asking to contact them before placing the order, was playing havoc with my camel camel price alerts :(

Buy a Kawai for the same money and never look back
yes happy with es100 also
blue-note
Casios for the same money have a far nicer tone and more realistic action. Kawais are also good.


Any good deals?
Would also recommend their stage pianos for manoeuvrability.

Manoeuvrability? Come and carry my CP5 for me sometime (_;)

Excellent deal, I've recently paid a lot more for a similar (but possibly higher spec) one for my son. It sounds fab, looks good in the room. Wish I had waited, could have saved some money. Heat added.
