Every current low to mid-level Yamaha I've seen has a "Made In China' label on the back. I think that's been going on for a few years now. Sony and Onkyo receivers are mostly manufactured in Malaysia. Pioneer and HK are Chinese made.

sorry, bringing this topic back to life, but I have many issues with my Denon 1913, specifically using airplay and then the Denon freezing up. This requires me to pull out the plug & then I lose all my settings. I may go with a Yamaha, Sony, or Pioneer next time.

I had constant issues with my last Yamaha 6150. hdmi board. Sent it in for repairs, warranty but had to pay for shipping, still wasn't fixed. The Yammie before that,similar issue with hdmi but in fairness it was one of the first with hdmi - rxv-4600. That is now powering my atmos speakers. Very strong amp, runs 4 ohms all day long.


Denon x4000. Used 16 hrs per day. 2 years now. Red lights and shutdowns after 11 months. Redone all cables, still did it. Factory reset it a few times...seems ok. But I still get some popping in speakers when it turns on.
Denon x4100. So far so good. But only used on weekends and 1 year old.


Denon Multeq is far better then ypao. But ypao is good, you just need to learn how to use it. Denon's multeq is very easy, and their onscreen menus easy, and their ability to send hdmi to other zones without rca's is great.


Both good names. Both sound good, different, but good. Yamaha is a bit brighter and better for music. Denon better for movies.

Weird thread to post in. Is there any chance you have artwork embedded in the music files? If so and they are
fairly dense pictures denon airplay will shut down. If not they are picky about what router you use. Yamaha
airplay plays any embedded artwork no problem. My network never disconnects and never unplugged receiver for years.

Ypao is nothing great. Audyssey multieq is crap. Xt is decent and xt32 kicks ypao butt. Like the x4000.

Will you need ceiling speakers for the new DTSx or will the basic 7.1 works?

This receiver will be hardwired into my network and will be pushing a simple 5.1 system with a Samsung plasma smart tv.
I have an V675 and love the unit, i am a fan of Yamaha. That being said i am open to being swayed

Im done with Denon...Sent off my AVRS710 earlier this year for a ....wait for it......HDMI board failure. It worked for 6 months and it just went out again. Now the Denon rep is telling me to go screw off to best buy. Well, i just did that, and of course they did nothing. This receiver is only 2 years old.

I want a refund. But what Denon is going to end up doing is to try to get me to upgrade to another problem ridden finicky receiver. So now i have to dig my 25 year old Kenwood out of the closet again while i figure this out...

I'm switching to Yamaha Unless a Denon rep gives me a good reason not to. Seriously. I will use this hunk for a garage stereo and pile a bunch of crap on it. It will forever be emitting analog audio because that's all it can manage to do. Dam thing.

Grrr, im so mad!
