Advantage Aventage

 on July 10, 2017
By Michael0924
This replaced an existing Yamaha receiver. I wanted a little bit more power and this definitely delivers. The other reason I bought this was to get the latest in 4K technology and it delivers there as well. I have had Sony ES and Denon receivers and Yamaha is my favorite of the three. It is easy to set up but you can get very detailed with it and there are so many options. This receiver should last a while and is flexible and powerful. My older receiver was a hammer but this is more like a 10lb sledge hammer. It really pushes the new speakers with a little extra umph that they really needed. Now they scream, in a good way.

Yamaha AVENTAGE has the ADVANTAGE

More to come as I explore the ins and outs but after setting up my 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos system and test driving the Arc, HDMI inputs and running some 4K UHD’s on my Xbox One S through this puppy, I have nothing but praise. Easy to connect to wi-fi network. A/V control phone app is just awesome. The menus are a little complex, especially after having test driven the new Yamaha’s with the lesser (but quite awesome!) TSR-5830 and enjoying how simple it was to navigate. But I’m sure I’ll get used to it in no time. This puppy is HUGE, but the craftsmanship is beautiful and it looks great on my shelf. If you are not going for full 9.2 or 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos, or for 3-zone home control, this guy is probably overkill, and you should consider the RX-A1070 or lower. I’ll post more as I continue to dig into it but for now, I’ll say, if you are considering this or other similarly priced or higher priced receivers, get this one. I previously had 3 great Sony receivers over the last 20 odd years but really didn’t like the new ones while looking to upgrade to 4K pass-through and full Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. I tried a Denon and a Marantz as well but I gotta say, this Yamaha really takes the cake for the cost.

2 Atmos/DTS-X setup and movies and music sound equally great on this

I did a lot of comparisons between the various AVRs before choosing the a2070. I looked at the Pioneer/Onkyo Elite the Sony and the Denon/Marantz models of comparable price. None of them offer the comparable features to the Yamaha. I’m running a 7.1.2 Atmos/DTS-X setup and movies and music sound equally great on this. My previous receiver was a Pioneer VSX-1124k and while that model sounded pretty good, i could never drive it quite loud enough. Also the AVR switching was horrendously slow. Not so with the Yamaha. The Yamaha also features some of the best internet connectivity if that is your thing. This is a beast of a receiver. Its not cheap but if I looked at the various comparisons and reviews of the other models in this price class and the Yamaha had the most to offer. I had fully intended to purchase a Pioneer Elite but after reading about the Yamaha Aventage models and researching the new Pioneer models, I just couldn’t justify any of the other brands. I’ve had this for a month so far and the only issue i have ever had is the receiver can draw more power than my old home’s wiring can handle on a single outlet when sharing that outlet with a bunch of other devices, causing the safety protection to trip and turn off the receiver. This only happens when i have it all the way cranked, well past the level of painful to the ears. Just realize this thing draws a lot of power so you probably don’t want it on some cluttered power strip with a bunch of your other devices.But again I love in a very old home with ancient wiring so I cant blame the Yamaha for this. Overall this is the kind of receiver that you can keep for years of enjoyment.

Definitely loud

I have had my eye on this unit for a while. After owning a Yamaha receiver for 18 years and researching other receivers, I decided to finally get this model. I am running a pair of Definitive Technology BP9080X speakers and a center Definitive Technology CS9080 on the unit. The receiver really drives the speakers to the max. I can’t bear the loudness of the sound coming out of the unit (That is what I have always wanted). It took a few minutes to get the unit set up with WIFI, calibrating the speakers, and getting the sound to come out the way I liked. It took a while to get it all set up with my Comcast cable and PS4. I had to call Yamaha’s customer service to help me with the matter. Initially I was not getting audio from my cable or PS4. The problem was resolved by making a simple setting adjustment. I am 100% satisfied with the receiver. I highly recommend the unit. It will definitely give you the loud and crisp sound you are looking for.

What a Difference in Sound!

 on June 10, 2018
By Sarge
On my wish list for nearly two years along with the a pair of Klipsch RP-140SA Atmos speakers, waiting for a significant price reduction for both. Middle of May came my opportunity and now my entertainment system has Dolby Atmos! The best way to describe the difference in sound quality is for this El Paso TX dude to use the A/C analogy of going from evaporative air to refrigerative air! The medium-sized entertainment room is now completely filled with 9.1 channels of theater-level sound while playing TV, movies, games and music. Definitely worth the wait and price! Since I was replacing an older Yamaha, connection and setup was surprisingly easy but would definitely suggest professional installation to anyone not experienced using the sound calibration features and equipment.

To good to be true

This thing is amazing! The sound is crisp and pristine! The bass is tight and extremely well defined. It’s perfect in every way. Network connectivity is great. One downside is that it’s huge. One guy if complaining about color coded speaker terminals..? Seriously? Another guy says you can get the same sound quality from a $500 system… I can tell you that’s not the case. Any electronics engineer will come to the same conclusion. I can’t believe I picked it up for $1000 bucks.

I love this thing, its way expensive, but the zones were what I needed to push a 5.1 inside system, and 4 speaker outdoor on different zones and inputs.
