I think we can agree YPAO doesn't EQ the sub very well, but some people have reported sub filters being used. The biggest issue is that you can't tackle room modes very well with 1/3 octave...

The speaker angle measurement for Atmos is a bit of an unknown, but even if it is applying the measured angles it's going to make negligible difference if you put your speakers in the recommended...

This has been seen before with some older models.

It's a stupid "safety" device that they install in some regions, to stop you burning yourself on the top (not that it should get that hot)....

Yes, the same firmware is used in all regions (US, Europe, etc.) so you can do the update. But the problem may be at the source rather than with the receiver.

That's a pity because Best Buy Canada carried Yamaha until fairly recently, as did Future Shop which no longer exists at all. Both those stores would have good sales once in a while.

I think it's a bit too soon to say, because we don't have all the specs yet. The 5000 had only minor differences from the 3030, and perhaps the same applies to the 5100 vs the 3050 (or perhaps it...

Yes, but only on the higher models. This year separate crossovers start with the RX-A1050 RX-A850, but in previous years you needed the 20x0 or above.

^ Most people have the sub level (measured with the internal test tones) matching the main speakers, and often they even boost it a few dB. Not sure why you would want/need yours significantly lower.

For auto calibration (YPAO) it doesn't matter how the master volume is set. But the manual test tones play according to the volume setting.

If you haven't had a Yamaha before remember that the master volume affects the test tones, so turn it up pretty high. Also you might have to turn up the gain on the back of the subs themselves...
