That makes sense, but I still wonder why they would have temporarily made that change on the web page? Was it a simple mistake, or did it have some purpose?

I've been thinking that as well, but am surprised that it took so long (a week maybe) for them to correct it if it was simply an error. They fixed the error in pricing on the 3050 that same day. But...

Troytn

I am using Outlaw Audio amps (a 7900 and 4 2200s) with my CX-A5000, not the
Z11 amps. I've not tried using a different preamp with the Z11 amps so I'm not
sure how well that works,...

But, if the improved volume IC was in the 3050, why wasn't it mentioned for it?

I owned two Z11s awhile back (still have one of them) and when Yamaha released the CX-A5000 + MX-A5000 I always just assumed that these two units together were the replacement for the Z11s. Their...

There are discrete IR codes available for the Yamahas that allow one to set the various surround modes. I use them with my Pronto remote controls alot.

I don't think there's much risk in doing the updates for these products. Now, with my JVC D-ILA X700...that's a really different story.

So, it looks like they have fixed the RX-A3050 page. The CX-A5100 is still showing the discount to $2499.95 though (even though the front page isn't).

If it stays there, that may be good news for...

That's what I was thinking as well, but the website for the CX-A5100 has a changed price, down to $2499.95 from $2999.95.

Hmm, it appears that Yamaha USA has lowered the MSRP of the RX-A3050 to the same as the RX-A2050 (based on their website). So, anyone know what's up?

Well, I'm more interested than concerned. I'd like to know more about what that means and is it different from the AVRs processing or not (as some have suggested).

I suspect that it's mostly due to lower volumes and marketing. Products (all products) tend to be priced at what the market will bear. ;)

It does appear that the 5100 has an additional 10 DSP programs (33 vs. 23). I think that was true with the 5000 vs. the 3030 as well. The 5000 has some additional DSP programs that were on the Z11 if...
