I'd love to use the 700 as a pre amp, but how do I set it up so it tells me what mode it is playing in?? I like seeing the amp move from one mode to the other, it assures me it is working correctly. Am I nuts here??

Hit the info button on the remote and it will tell you what codec it is using.

One change between the 3000 and 3010 is that if you are running 11.2 then on the 3000 you could only use external amp on front and rear presence speakers.

The 3010 you can use a higher quality external amp for front L and R. And use 3010 to power rest.

Thie 3010 is great when using a 2ch external amp with HT bypass to power your fronts for discrete listening.

That's a pretty wide gap but I hope that gives you some idea as to how much the source material/signal effects volume level. Also I am using klipsch bookshelf speakers with 5-1/4" woofers on the mains and 4-1/2" woofers on the surrounds all about ten feet away from the calibrated spot. You might also play with your dynamic range settings. I find that standard is much quieter than maximum or minimum/auto for some reason.

I agree -35 is comfortable for me -30 is about is a work out for my ears ...I still use saving private ryan opening scene on the beach as my bench mark -30 is ear candy for the 3010 ..must say I love the 3010

Hit the info button on the remote toggles between DSP mode and HD codec mode. Hitting DSP straight disables Yamaha's DSP's and only uses the HD codec
as per BR disc.

I think somethings wrong with the disc..the blue ray light on my sony bdps350 doesn't come on on this disc..in the menu it shows 5.1 dolby digital english

Interviewer, off camera: "Why not just make 0 louder, and have that be the highest level?"

Pause

I just ordered a 710 to replace an H/K 254 that the HDMI died. I hope this sounds as sweet as the H/K did, but I wasn't going to spring for another and worry about it going south in a couple years again. Has anyone played both and have an opinion on the SQ difference between Yamaha and Harman Kardon?

the yamaha 3010 has opened up a whole new world of sound for me my speakers have come alive with sound ..I'm using a 7.1 system no back surround but I'm using presence speakers ..Several post have said their is no need for them but they do add to the mix ..not sure when playing a blu ray true hd does the bd player do the decoding or does the reciever do the decoding ..one thing lacking on this reciever is a line in for my creative juke box ..doesn't recognize the player through the usb port
post #42 of 2855
After much consideration, I purchased the A800 last night to replace my rx-v3200. Sad to see the old loyal guard regulated to the garage, but it can't delay audio for lip sync, no HDMI, nor can it deliver the newest sound codecs. In its day the 3200 would squash this 800. LOL

What I found strange is that of the A700, A710, A800, A810, only the A710 doesn't have pre-outs. My system uses a dedicated amp for the mains, and I almost bought the A710. It just hit me as weird. No biggie if you don't need the pre-out option.
post #43 of 2855
I upgraded to the 2010 coming from a 3900.

So far so good. Added front presence and soon a 2nd sub. ANyway. No receiver manager?

Anyone know when this will be able to be updated to OUR models? ALso....can't connect to my PC. Have not trouble w/ Net radio or Sirius.

Thanks.
Kdog.

+1

Glad you find the presence worthwhile. I am going 9.1 soon. The Yamaha DSP

programs create the sound in the presence speakers. hitting 3D sound to on

(Options button) improves the effect even more.

I have been upgraded to a 3010 frm a 3000 due to a missing remote (small one). The 3000 was good but I believe after listening to my reference track "opening sequence" of the BluRay Outlander I felt my jaw hitting my chest. I have never heard it sound this good before.

A lot has been said about the upgrade of YPAO on last years version. The clarity and dynamic sound is something I was searching for.

Just love my new 3010

I've got the A710 on my "short list" and have a question for current owners.

How does it fare as far as operating temperatures goes? This is a class AB unit, right? Does the unit have active fans?

See my thread here for the short list: Help me move out of the stone age

I have not noticed mine getting very hot, I don't think it has a fan just convective cooling. I just wish I would have gone with the A810 because I wanted preouts and thought the A710 had them

Jazz and Con,

Can you elaborate further on how the Presence Speakers have added to the "Experience"...?

Also what does turning ON the 3D Options Button further add to the already added "Experience"...?

Regards,

Rana

Press "On screen" button. In the left menu go to "input" then select the input desired and press ^ cursor. Then select "rename/icon select"

Posted as its own thread earlier, but thought I would post here too:

Staring at a box just delivered for a Yamaha RX-A2010. First new receiver in a while... Old stuff was in a fire several years back and had never replaced it.

Mostly for movies and games. Could have had a TX-NR1009 for about $120 cheaper. Will I miss NEO:X and some of the other modes for movies for 7.1 or 9.1? I have read mixed reviews on the Yamaha proprietary surround processing.

The recent reputation for reliability with Onkyo scared me away, but now I am already hearing the new models do not run nearly as hot.

Either receiver though is far and away higher end than what I had previously as a college student.

What do you think?
post #58 of 2855
Question for RX-A2010 or 3010 owners.

I have a Salamander Archetype system and the shelves are 16" deep. I'm trying to see if the receivers will fit on the shelf. The shelves are an open design. http://www.salamanderdesigns.com/products/av.jsp

What is the distance between the front of the front foot and the back of the rear foot of either of these receivers?

Thanks
post #59 of 2855
my shelve is 16 inches the feet are about 14 inches outside to outside the box is about 8 inches high so it will fit but overlaps front and back
post #60 of 2855
Thanks.

That will work great!
