GREEN for OP

Hows this compare to the Onkyo TX-NR809?

I used Onkyo's in the past and had to stop using them due to excessive heat and the HDMI switch has gone out on several I have installed.

I now use Yamaha and have not had to have one repaired yet. Also, the run cooler.

I installed an Onkyo TX-SR806 a few years ago and I couldn't touch the top of it because it got too hot and the HDMI ports went out on it.

Thanks. Got 1

THD 0.9%... Usually its 0.0* .. how does it affect the audio quality ? I love Yamaha products so want to get some info before pulling the plug. thanks

7-channel powerful surround sound: 95W per Channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.09 % THD, 2 ch driven); 110W per Channel (8 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9 % THD, 2 ch driven)

That was quick. Ordered mine Saturday the 23rd. It arrived already. I expected to see made in China , hoped to see Japan, but made in Malaysia. Not concerned, but some want to know.

I have to cycle the power when the sound cuts off but I love the remote for my Onkyo.

I bought the Costco identical model of this receiver HTR-7065 for $479. The only difference with this one being that this comes with the wireless adapter included which is a nice bonus so this is a great deal. But if you can't get in on it, then Costco is a great option and a lot of people won't even use the wireless adapter.

However, if anyone wants to sell me their wireless adapter for a good price, send me a PM. I have heard that the $49.99 Netgear wireless bridge works as an alternative FYI.

Rated Output Power (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.09 % THD, 2 ch driven): 95 W/Ch

Rated Output Power (8 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9 % THD, 2 ch driven): 110 W/Ch

Dynamic Power/Ch (Front L/R, 8/6/4/2 ohms): 140/180/210/250 W


OP, the true power per channel at full bandwidth is in bold. This can be found under the details tab.

I am in the market for a receiver. This one is at top end of my budget which is ok. Is there any reason not to buy this? I am not that knowledgeable of all the new features but do not want to find out later it is lacking something that I would need/want. Any help or other recommendations would be appreciated. Thank You

When using supplied wife adapter, it was not as simple as I expected. I am using FIOS. The supplied router has a WPS button. Problem is Verizon has never enabled it with firmware updates. The supplied wifi adapter is setup to use WPS to make it easy. I had to hook it up to my router and manually set up the wifi adapter.
WPS is wifi protected setup.

So you were able to set it up without WPS? I disabled WPS on my routers because they are so easily breached by hackers and I live in an apartment building where you can receive about 50 other networks from the other apartments. That is probably why Verizon did not enable WPS on your router.
Did they give you instructions for set-up w/o WPS? I ordered mine on Saturday, but mine won't arrive until Thursday.

I did a lot of research before I bought mine. Let me save you the headache doing your own research, yes, buy this one.

Yes, but the instructions supplied blow. Was pretty simple though once I said screw the instructions.

Anybody knows how this compares to the pioneer sc-1222-k for $500 at Newegg. The amps and watts look better on the pioneer, however, the features of the Yamaha seem better. I am having a tough time deciding.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I am liking that Pioneer, but the only $500 one I see is open box. What features are you speaking of?

I was between this and a Denon AVR-2113ci, I wanted something that would upscale component to HDMI but apparently this Yamaha doesn't, just pases to component out. Also the Yamaha YPAO sound calibration system generally isn't as well regarded as Audyssey that the Denon uses. Probably splitting hairs but for me the Denon was better.

Also.. read too many issues with Onkyo and Pioneer, double check reviews and AV forums for data.

This yamaha has hdmi upscale and 4K Pass-through & 4K Upscaling

They had a$50 off code for the pioneer. I just checked and its gone, so it's back to 550. I will post if it comes back.

My mistake, I see that listed in the specs - HDMI upscaling Yes (Analog to HDMI / HDMI to HDMI).

Bought today thanks


Ordered the Yamaha on Saturday and it arrived on Wednesday, a day early. Had some questions during set-up. Called Yamaha and found English speaking American tech support who were friendly and knowledgeable about their products.
Receiver runs cooler than any others I have had.

Definitely thought it ran cooler than my Sony. But then touched the bottom, it was hot, still not as hot as my Sony. Now going to try to figure out how to tune in sirius.

The 2 HDMI outs in this price range is awfully tempting, but the analog-only Zone 2 is a deal breaker for me. Oh well. Nice deal, though.

Can anyone compare this to the Onkyo TX-NR809 for me? I just bought the 809, but might consider this one if they are comparable. Any thoughts on the differences or benefits of each?

I've had great luck with older Pioneer receivers, very full sound, low heat. Hoping Newegg gets the vsx-1122 back in stock for $300.
