Yamaha Avantage 2030 "SEEKING" 2 Channel Sound Quality??
I'm new to the forum. I apologies if this is not in the right place.
8 months ago I replaced a 14 year old RXV 995 with a RX 2030. I listen to music (jazz to rock) in 2 channel 80% of the time. From day one the 2 channel sound sound just hasn't been "present/true/clear." I have changed speakers. Tried Cantons, Monitor Audio and now back to Jamo 7.7 fronts with matching sub and dipolar rears. These are the best sound achieved, so far, however about 7 out of 10 as clear and true as the old amp. The audio guys have been to my place and truly have given me the run around at my cost for 8 months. I have had Yamaha on the phone for hours adjusting settings, minimally, saying I should be getting great sound on pure direct, and then saying its the speakers and their positioning or try Bi Amping??? I said to them everything sounded great until the new amp came along.
The home audio guys are now saying I should have purchased a Marantz 5008 coupled up with a PM 8005 integrated amp to get the sound I expect. My problem is my old AVR sounded great and cost heaps less.
Would anyone have any ideas that may help get clearer presence in the sound please? Thanks in advance...
