Found 26th Dec 2017
Was looking for a new amp and they all seem to be nearer the £300 for 4k handling, is this amp any good.

Have the rxv 675 in another room and it has been reliable for the last 3 and a half years.

Blurb from site

Powerful processing and fully equipped for a UHD 4K future, the Yamaha RXV583 has the sound to match the biggest TVs.

I have been looking at the same AV Receiver.Quite good specs.Currently using Bose for Movies and Sonos for Audio but contemplating of going in with AV and separates for Atmos Dolby when I move into my new house.
Damn,HUKD seems to be emptying my pockets real quick.

Quite tempted to go in for this one
Only 4 x hdmi INputs - not good enough given the price esp with denons x2400 at only another £69.

This isn't a major issue for myself. Only got a sky q box going into it, then use the smart TV arc for apps such as Netflix Amazon prime etc

4 outputs? You're lucky to get 2 on most top end receivers. How many TVs have you got??

I think you mean inputs.
There's your 100.
You don't need to spend £300 to get 4k handling as stated by the OP. For example the Yamaha RXV383 at £199 works with 4k including full HDR support, including Dolby Vision and HLG.

£300+ gets typically gets you Atmos sound too.

The Yamaha is good, especially with the recent price drop, but the Denon 2400 and Sony 1080 are better if your budget can stretch that far.

Quite an old model now, and doesn't support HLG which is something I'd recommend to give you some future protection.
I have the rx-v581 which is very similar to this.

Works well and stable. I’m using it with Xbox one x, a pc at 4K 60hz , you view box and an Nvidia shield.

My previous AV receiver was an Onkyo, the Yamaha works and sounds just as good . The GUI menus are more basic but it’s not a bad thing,

airplay works stable and Bluetooth also fine.

I returned a pioneer AV receiver and got this Yamaha as the pioneer did not switch inputs automatically ( e.g when using smart apps built into the tv, it didn’t pull the audio from the TV)or power off with the TV. (CEC) .

I've not heard either but the Yamaha would tempt me with musicCast.
I bought the RXV-483 today and I must say I'm very impressed with it for the money. Handles 4k content from SkyQ and Amazon FireTV and sounds miles better than my 3 year old Sony amp using B&W M1 speakers and BK sub.

Then this isnt for you if you are wasting crap on arc... arc has limited bandwidth so you may as well buy a 1.4 hdmi amp and save some cash.
Anyone know if this has standby pass through?

I would of thought so but not sure.

my amp 1080p is still fine, the only 5.1 source i got is 4k dvd player but that has split hdmi and all online sources are stereo so i just use pro logic surround
Tempted to get this along with the Q Acoustics 3020 (£119 - Link) from Richer Sounds. Good combo or is this AMP overkill for the speaker set?

Good combo especially if you build into a 5.1 setup with more q acoustics 3 series speakers.

It's not overkill. It means you can add more speakers in the future.
Does anyone ever have issues with their receivers sound cutting out for a second or 2 at random times?

If it is when sky q is the source, it is a sky q issue that they seem to blame on hdmi cable. If it is on all sources, then again try another hdmi, but may be a faulty amp.
My existing amp doesn’t do 4K so looking to change. If I plug my Xbox one x into the amp and then connect the amp to my 4K tv does that mean I will get the games to output in 4K?

Get the centre 3090 too.

I have bought the amp in this post and it looks like it supports HDR & 4K from all it's inputs/outputs so hopefully I am good to go.

I have HDMI ARC on one of the inputs on my TV but I don't know how to get it working. Not sure my 6 year old amp supports it. Figured it was best just to buy a new amp and this one seemed a good price. Plus I already have a Yamaha and have had no problems with it. Will be nice to get bluetooth and muisic streaming with teh new one too. ATMOS no good for me as I only have a 5.1 setup but I can use my headphones for that.

Not sure if I can get the rear 2 speakers as well to make it a full 5.1 setup.

How would a 3.1 fit? Worth it or just stick to 2.1

The centre makes a big difference to me. Especially if you're not directly in the middle of the front left right.

Is it possible to set up your AV receiver to ensure that only the left, right and centre speakers are connected? So any rear surround channels are mixed in.

All i wanted was the 3020 bookshelf speakers for £120, now im looking at £750 for a set of 2 speakers, 1 sub, and 1 AV receiver Dammit HDUK

Yes you should be able to run 3.1 fine. Surrounds audio will be ignored

Why don't you just optical out from TV to amp, and plug Xbox in TV? That's what I have done on my 3 year old Yamaha which only supports DTS HD - it's all I need though my missus will divorce me if I put more speakers in room lol

That’s exactly what I was doing but wasn’t sure if I was getting the full sound capabilities from 4K Blu-rays and games. Video connections I can understand but audio confuses me no end Anyway, I’ll useany excuse to buy a new piece of kit!!

Haha yeah I love buying new kit.

I wasn't sure either at first, until I was playing round with audio settings on TV with Amp switched on and could see it change to 5.1 on audio. Also, I can recognise the sound mix on some films so double checked with them....think I'm.more inclined to update speakers than amp (I've got KEF eggs)
I bought this amp before Xmas for this price to go with a new 4K system, it's fantastic for the money. Peter Tyson have it slightly cheaper than RS though.....

Well mine turned up this morning. Only ordered yesterday so that’s great service. Anyway I have connected the tv to the hdmi output of the amp and attached my Xbox one x to input 1. And that all works perfect. Full 4K and Atmos. This is using hdmi 1 on my Samsung tv which is the only input that outputs hdr.

Problem is is when attaching my sky box and Apple TV to the other inputs on the amp. I am only getting 2.1 audio from those. Any idea what I am doing wrong. My tv has arc but only on one input which is not the hdr one. From normal tv I have got 5.1 by connecting an optical cable. Am I going to have to connect the sky box and Apple TV to the Samsung direct to get 5.1? What are the other hdmi inputs on the amp for then?
Down to £289 now - Tempted to replace my old Onkyo HTR380 with it

The amp HDMI output supports ARC, so any audio generated in the TV can be returned to the amp to utilise the multi-speaker set-up and surround processing if the TV also supports ARC from one of its inputs. Your other devices connected to the amp should be in full surround if the content they are transmitting has surround and they are set to output surround.
I have a UHD BD player, an old DVD/HDD player/rec and an Android box connected, all coming through 5.1/7.1/Atmos. TV sound comes back through as 5.1 from channels broadcasting it, or processed up using DSP/DTS Neo6 etc.
Problem is the only HDMI input on the TV that has ARC is HDMI 3 and my model of Samsung only has 1 HDMI input that handles 4K/HDR content which is HDMI 1. So I can't use both. Which is really bizarre. Why would they make it like that?

I have now remembered that my Sky STB is an older model Amstrad and as such doesn’t have the ability to output 5.1 audio via HDMI (going to contact Sky to see if they will replace it). It will only do it via optical. I have since discovered the setting on the receiver where I can create the fake 5.1 so I have the centre speaker working. However I think I will just connect an optical cable instead. Means I lose the one coming from my tv but I use Sky to watch tv anyway. I got teh Apple TV working properly
