If I have 2 subs connected to my 2010. Should I set the Rear sub to REVERSE phase?

Only if that gives you better response in your listening position. There's no right or wrong with sub phasing.

I have a basic zone 2 component video question for those with the A1010. I want to expand my main zone that houses all the sources to just add HD video to the TV in the garage.

I have hdmi over cat5 currently set up but in effort to not add a 4x2 matrix switcher to the equation. Can i simply go:

component video out -> comp to hdmi converter -> hdmi over cat5 balun? Seems simple.

the only goal is to have the tv in the garage either play the same source if a game is on or have the xbox going on zone 2 and tv in the house.

all zone 2 audio is fine over stereo, just looking for dual source video?

Looks like the new RM doesn't support anything below the 1071, which is a pity given that network control now starts with the 671.

Absurd that I have to register to view the manual for a receiver.

I am a current owner of a Yamaha receiver, and was researching a new one. Wanted to see the manual for some info. The Yamaha website would not let me see the manual without registering. I need a password to see the owners manual? I also need to give them my email address?

Why would they go out of their way to make it difficult for potential customers to see this? None of the competition does this!

BAD MOVE Yamaha!!!!

I'll look elsewhere.........

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??

My 700 always tells me whats playin.

I registered over two months ago to view the manual before deciding if I was going to purchase one. I have yet to receive a single piece of SPAM or anything from Yamaha since doing so.

Set up my account years ago and have had easy access to all manuals and firmware. Never any reason to regret giving them an email. Yamaha has every right to ask for a simple registration for downloads. Some other AVR makers don't even offer downloads.

I also registered years ago for speakers I purchased. Logged in the other day to get the newest firmware and the d/l errored out and the site logged me out. Now when I try to login is says my PW is invalid, yet when I request a new one I never receive the email. If I try to create a new account, my email is already in the system. Even if they do have the 'right,' their system sucks lol.

I thought it was a pain as well a couple years ago but, as you said I get no spam from Yamaha and I'm able to quickly view any manual I want. I have the remember me button checked and don't have to worry about login.

Hi, everyone. My RX-A710's protection circuitry must have kicked in when I was listening with the volume turned up and now the unit does not power on. A friend of mine review it (is no longer under warranty) and fuses are ok. According to the manual, it has to be reset by a Yamaha repair person but i live far away from anyone. Does anyone know the reset procedure? I know it involves pressing some front buttons simultaneously but I ignore the combination. Thanks a lot for the help!

Make sure wife and kids are away... and all surrounding loose hosehold items are taped down.

Amazing! This is why we spend all our hard earned $$$ :-)

Wow Duke, awesome stuff.. Last night.. introduced the wife to the new system...

V3010 @ +3.0DB with 9.2 channels with dual hsu research vtf-15H subs, paradigm studio 100s, CC690 center, studio 20s and paradigm monitor 7s playing Fleetwood Mac, "TUSK"

Truly, ungodly

If you want to turn it up a notch Duke, play some Kraftwerk!

I have the 710 set up and working. I would classify the sound as "bright" compared to the H/K, but still very acceptable. I thought the YPOA, or what ever it's called was MUCH more accurate than H/K's. I tweaked it very little after set-up. I like the HD GUI on the H/K better, but I like the greater flexibility in naming inputs on the 710. Hated the Yamaha remote, but I use a Harmony remote anyway. It took me a while to "find" the settings I like, but the sound has gradually grown on me and I like what I hear. I have ordered a dual band wirelessn N router and will get a bridge to hook everything up - currently only my ROKU is streaming anything. I will hook-up my BD player, Dish DVR, probably the ROKU and the 710 after I get them. I'm looking forward to trying some of the connection opportunities I haven't tried yet. It doesn't run anywhere close to as HOT as the H/K did. I'm sure it cooked itself in my cabinet. The new H/Ks have built in fans, but are quite a bit more expensive than the Yamaha. I believe I will end up liking this Yamaha, but if I had to choose one or the other strictly on SQ - I'd pick the H/K.

Usually it takes 3 shutdowns in a row before you can't turn it on again, I don't know if that's what happened in your case.

Anyhow, I don't know if the procedure changed on the latest models, but this post describes what to do for the 667, and it's worth a try.

So, quick question. Does using the multi-channel input bypass the room correction from YPAO and internal cross over to sub?

Was going to try PC via multi channel input but don't want to lose all of the room correction/etc.

Thanks for the reply. I have a H/K 2600 and was thinking of switching to the 810.

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

Thanks for that! Any chance you could give a rundown of any other changes? Is the OSD for menu and volume any different? The 3000 "scenes" is limited compared to the Z-11's memory functions. Has that improved at all? Thanks!

Hey Guys,
My Onkyo -TX875 just blew the HDMI board (AGAIN) Looking for a quick replacement (company coming on Friday, wanna show off the new Sharp 80"!!).

Newegg has got the 2010 & the 3000 at basically the same price (both around $1000) but only good til midnight tonight.

Any quick opinions on one vs the other. I've got a 7.1 setup and "planning" on Sonos wholde home audio, so I don't really have a need for multi zone listening.

We do use the iphone/ipad a lot for listening to music.

thanks - John

I'd choose the A3000 every time for the better amp and features. The A2010 might have a couple newer features that you want, (like iPod) so there's that.
post #114 of 2855
I saw that price. $929 for the A3000!!! ( Promo code to get the price is EMCYTZT897 )

The 2010 has the same features and power rating (+2 more channels of power) as the 3000, minus the HDMI video adjustment difference and 4th zone. It even has 3D DSP that the 2000 lacks vs the 3000. Other than that, the 2010 has more features.
post #116 of 2855
X10 model is a better option for you. I was in the same boat when i wanted a 3010.. so, i just went on ebay and saved $600.

I just got a new center channel for my RX-A710 and ran the YPAO and got a W-3 level Error, I looked through the manual but did not see anything. Anyone know what it means?

W-3 means the volume varies too much between channels, so YPAO can't make them equal by adjusting the levels.

Either the new center channel is way more (or less) sensitive than your other speakers (which seems unlikely), or the subwoofer level is the problem. Check how all speakers levels were set by YPAO and post them here.

Ok this is what YPAO set them at:

Center: +5.0

Front R&L: 0.0

Right Rear Suround: -7.0

Left Rear Suround: -9.0

Suround Back: -3.5

Subwoofer: -10

Thanks for the help.

Do you have your sub in a corner? It looks like it has run out of room to adjust the sub down. Try moving your sub or turning the manual level down on the sub.
