Prepping for my new Klipsch RF-7 fronts arriving tomorrow; upgraded RX-V671 to RX-A2010 today in main HT setup with my dad helping. Ran new speaker wire, installed center channel tilt rod, added (AVR side) banana plugs and positioned AVR on bottom shelf. Future amp will go on top shelf. Reprogramming Harmony One to swap the new AVR for the right activities is a bit tedious. The input names are changed - instead of HDMI1, HDMI2, etc it's now AV1, AV2 but no biggie there.
OEM 2010 remote controls are substantial - larger remote is quite heavy w/ LCD panel (!) but i'll be dam*ed if I can figure out how to do even simple things like switch inputs without looking at the manual. I fumbled through a YPAO setup w/ Quintet Fronts (before the 7's get here tomorrow). On the other hand, I won't need the OEM remote much after I do the YPAO and set XO's after 7's get here. Running Cat5 from Apple Airport Express to 2010's ethernet port, flawless. Automatically configured network access, online & ready to stream before I could tap in my Pandora Username and Password. 30 seconds later, yamaha a/v controller iOS app added 2010 to my devices.
Limited video impressions so far but, I can see a difference between 671 and 2010 video processors. I don't even watch anything SD anymore, but putting on an SD channel shows off impressive up-scaling. The difference in HD channels is definitely there don't know how to define, picture seems like it pops off the screen. If there's an SD commercial in between HD commercials, the 2010 upscales it automatically, and you see the black bars, that's impressive as well.
More to follow.
