Hey guys!

I am so confused between the receivers!

I am bent on buying Yamaha because of its name and quality.

I am confused between the following and this is my first ever home music setup ever - to watch movies and music as well.

Rx-a710(eBay new 420$) or rx-a800(ebay new 385$) or rx-a1010( eBay 700 or newegg 999$)


I am looking for the best value for money spent. Apart from differences which one would make a good system? These will run the klipsch reference speakers.

Please advise guide suggest.

Thanks
RJ

Any of those should easily push Klipsch speakers, because of their sensitivity. I would go with the RX-A800 if it was myself. It is last years model but a step above the 710. It is a tep below the 1010, but I don't think it is worth the $315 dollar difference.

I should mention that I bought the RX-A2000, which is last years model and I love it. You only lose a couple features and a couple HDMI inputs, by going with last years model. Yoo can go to Yahmaha's website to see what features you gain by going with this years models. If you can do without the newest features yo ucan find some great deal on all of last years models. (700, 800, 1000, 2000, 3000)

be careful buying off eBay, most sellers are not authorized internet dealers for Yamaha. Newegg is an authorized seller. You may, or may not, be able to get warranty service if you purchase a Yamaha receiver from a non-authorized source.

Newegg just had the A800 for $300 and sold out quickly, sign up for their "e-Blast" email sales announcements so you can catch the next Yamaha sale, because they go quick.

agreed. I would only buy from authorized dealers. You might be saving money now, but when or if it breaks, no warranty.

Are you dead set on Yamaha? Onkyo 709, 809, 1009, 3009, 5009 are great.
Denon and Marantz are very good also I hear. I have always used onkyo with my klipsch. Klipsch are easy to drive also so dont get caught up in the wattage game

Onkyo and Denon also have the latest version of Audyssey which IMHO is far superior than Yamaha and Pioneers room corrections.

Yamaha makes nice reliable receivers but only purchase from ebay if it is from an authorized dealer. Newegg had the A800 for $299 over the weekend.

There are other brands you can get that would be good also. Denon AVR-2112 comes to mind.

That is one knock against Yamaha... they don't have Audyssey room correction software.

The 2112 might be a good option. The Onkyo 709 has a lot more features for the money, but do keep in mind that it will run hot, so keep it well ventilated.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

Get the A800 here - it will drive the Klipsch
http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-RX-A800.../dp/B003XDU498

The Yamaha speaker set up did OK for me - when I bother to use it.
