I picked up my RX-A1030 on last Friday, the 18th. While I am so far happy with virtually everything in comparison to the RX-V2500 it replaced, I have one major problem with the manual.
In the manual, it says to go into the Advanced Setup menu and set the speaker impedance to something other than 8-ohms if your speakers are 4 or 6 ohms before connecting speakers. My speakers are 6-ohms, and, of course, I did not read this part in the manual before I connected my speakers.
After having brought the receiver up for the first time and after having searched for this setting in the GUI, I then read this part in the manual. On trying to get into the Advanced Setup menu, I found that I could not. I pressed and held the Straight button then the Main Zone button as instructed, however, the unit would not go into Advanced Setup. I found nothing in the manual as to why it would not go into Advanced Setup.
To make the long story short, if the "Zone 2" indicator is lit in the display meaning that Zone 2 is on, the unit will not go into Advanced Setup. There is no reference to this in the manual that I could find.
Hopefully, this will save someone the trouble of trying to figure out why the unit will not go into Advanced Setup.
