I could of got the 671 for $389, but got the 673 for $442 for airplay and 4k upscaling for future. Question: I have an old xbox(modded with NES,SNES,Genesis games) which uses composite cables. How significant is the upconvert? Cant wait for mine to rrive in the mail-im sure ill be messing with the settings for the first week
I believe your speakers are 8 ohm, which is the Yamaha's default setting too. If the speakers specs say 6 or 4 ohm, you want to change the impedance setting on the AVR, and higher gauge cable will probably be a good idea for longer runs.
For example, I have deftech in walls (4ohm), and they recommend 18 or 16 gauge for runs under 25 feet, 16 or 14 for runs between 25 and 50, and 14 or 12 for runs over 50 ft. All my runs are less than 50, and I ran the wire behind the wall, so I future proofed it somewhat and went with blue jeans cable 14 gauge across the board.
