I've owned the RX-V1, RX-Z1, Z9...and then as luck would have it...after a major fiasco owning the Harman Kardon 1700 which died a well deserving death HK...they sent me a 1710 replacement that lasted 4 years until it too died.
Using my charm and charisma
I convinced a HK rep to send me a 4 year out of warranty courtesy replacement...
Since I didn't want to wait I checked out A4L and grabbed a Yamaha TSR-7810 that I thought would be an amazing replacement. So I hooked it up and A/B'd them once Harman actually made good on a replacement.
What if I told you...that the 1710.
It does. Why does a 11 lb receiver sound better than a unit that weighs almost 3 times as much ? I don't get it. Even with the EQ, DSP modes and obvious perceived higher power output the Harman seriously sounds better.
How and why?
I think either I'm on crack or the 7810 is defective?
