This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Advantage Aventage
Yamaha’s Aventage range takes Yamaha’s considerable knowhow to the next level. Anti-Resonance Technology (ART) makes this AVR exceptionally resistant to mechanical and electrical interference. ART offers a wide range of benefits, including full metal casing with aluminium front panel and flap plus a fifth damping foot, helping give the RX-A880 its superb detail and resolution. Pure Direct bypasses unneeded processors for the cleanest, purest sound with music.

Room-filling power
With power up by 20% compared to the smaller RX-A680, the 100 watt RX-A880 gives effortless, room-filling sound. The fully discrete power amplifier minimises distortion, making high levels easily achievable. Separate power supplies for digital and analogue feeds further reduce distortion, as do the specially damped heat sinks.

Cut the wires to your rear speakers
New to this year’s Aventage range is the option to add wireless rear speakers. Combine this receiver with the Yamaha MusicCast 20 or MusicCast 50 speakers and you can leave aside speaker cable connections. Perfect if you have a solid floor and struggle to hide speaker cable or if you simply want a cleaner style, wireless surround speakers cut down on the clutter.

"Another UNKNOWN" brand joke coming Richh.


Yep you would be better off with a known brand like Onkyo.
I hope you guys are taking the P cause behind marantz, Yamaha's receivers are second best and are the most reliable.
1st best being ?
You'd think this joke was old anough now that no one would still bite, but alast they do......

Based on what?

Marantz receivers are great sonically and aesthetically, Yamaha for the last year or two sound poor.

Personally I’d get the Denon AVRX-3600 for around this price, maybe a little more.

Ouch
In one way, it's a bad time to get a receiver with HDMI 2.1 around the corner.

Depends on your requirements, but lossless 5.1/7.1 and variable refresh rate are a couple of features I'd like to have, without having to swap HDMI cable around each time for a different source. Hopefully the major brands do bring it for the 2020 line up, I'm keeping my eye on Denon.

The lossless part is for eARC. Not important if you don't use built-in TV services, like Netflix. Say you have an Nvidia shield, it won't be used, unless it's plugged into the TV, which would be silly.
I do agree though. I wouldn't be buying one now.

I have in a box Yamaha RX- A730 titanium used if anyone's interested to buy?

Is it definite/almost definite that hdmi 2.1 is coming to all avrs this year? I totally understand that 8k content is very very very scarce right now but Id like to future proof buying an avr for a good few years. If so, do you think we'll pay a premium for it or will avrs stay roughly in line with current prices?

Hi all

I have had two yamahas for 25 years the first was the A2 which I still use in the spare room for music and the pc as I could not bring myself to sell it.

The one I use for my 5.1 is the RX 3900. Which is a great amp to and want to upgrade but not to sure what to replace it with but it will be a Yamaha.

Are Yamaha not making good amps anymore or are they only making good ones at the top end like the AVENTAGE RX-A3080. This amp has been out years to.

Here we go again. If you only bought things when next new thing was in you would never buy.
Just get cheapest model with the features you need NOW or in the next year and be happy for at least 3 or 4 years. 8k and earc would be scarcely needed in that timeframe.
I do not understand any of the comments here. Think I'll stick with my 80s Kenwood amplifier which seems fine.

HDMI versions don't happen every year. I think it's worth waiting, if you plan on spending this much anyway.

I intend to run my next AV receiver for about 10 years (as my current one has lasted). The features I described in the 2.1 revision are features I want, so I'll wait, rather than get something a few months sooner that doesn't have them. Other people won't want those features, they don't need to wait. I thought I explained that!

First off sound is subjective. Yamaha may not be the best for films, but music, it's the best sounding. As an all rounder yamaha is the best and unlike all other av receivers they are the most reliable.
