The result of my first weekend playing with and calibrating this unit is that I'm blown away by the quality of the sound! I was actually never really able to get my speakers (5 X Ascend Acoustics Sierra-1 NrT and a SVS PB12-Plus) to sound like I thought they should with the Onkyo. Even though it has more watts/channel, I always felt like the sound was recessed or the speakers were being held back to some extent. The Yamaha not only sounds more lifelike to me, It drives my setup incredibly well. I'm hearing base and highs like I've never heard before and they are booming out an awesome soundstage for HT like I didn't know they could. All said and done, I couldn't be happier. If you're on the fence and can't decide on a next receiver...look no further. The Aventage line is amazing!
Agreed. I have the 3040, and I'm very happy. Only one complaint: if "server" input is running on another zone, I can hear bleed through on my main speakers when only the receiver default screen on (very faint, but I can name the tune from my listening position)....can you please check if yours does this?

Cheers,

I don't have this problem on my 3040.

Is the receiver powering the other zone and you are using pre-outs to your main speakers?
If so your wires are running too close to each other.....

There seems to be some confusion as to whether the 3040 is HDMI 2.0, 18 Gbps, HDCP 2.2...

The vast majority of the receivers and pre/pros that were released in 2014 does not support HDCP 2.2, the exception to this is Onkyo. But Onkyo has a limitation on the bandwidth for the single HDMI port that does have HDCP 2.2 so there's not much joy there.

The work around is to purchase new a blu-ray player that will have dual HDMI outputs; one for audio that does not need HDCP 2.2 and this can go to your receiver. The second HDMI output is for video which has HDCP 2.2 and it would be connected to your TV/projector. It will probably take a few years before 4k with HDCP 2.2 becomes mainstream with readily available content. This gives plenty of time for current owners to enjoy/play around with their receivers getting nice Dolby Surround Up-mixer or other matrix formats such as CINEMA DSP 3D/HD, etc. offered by Yamaha.

So the sky hasn't fallen down on us who have purchased 2014 receivers/pre/pros...

Marantz SR-7009, Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, aTV, Harmony Home Control remote, KEF E301+T101, MiniDSP (2x4)+(10x10HD)+(DDRC-88A), Emotiva 2xXPA-5 (Gen2), Rythmik 2xF12G+2xF8, HiMedia Q16, LG 55EC9300.

My experience with DSU vs Yamaha DSPs (I have a 5.1.4 system) it's that DSU gives the best (natural) 3D soundscape BUT it sounds a bit overprocessed and with a slight loss of imaging. There is an evident loss of absolute transparency too when I use the DSU. So tonally I feel the DSPs more right than DSUS. I ended listening most of the time to some of the DSPs, mainly Sci-fi (that uses all the capabilities of DSP-YPAO creating the overhead channels and "fixing" not so academic speaker angle positions and early reflections in the boundaries without adding too much caracter to the sound, it's the less intrusive DSP to my ears) and Music video that gives all DSPs goods adding a wonderful and addictive sense of space and presence to the most of the Live concerts Blurays. by the way I use DSU mainly when listening to 2Channel field recordings. With DSU nature soundscapes recorded with two channels rigs has an incredible sense of true 360 3D space. Absolutely amazing.
I wonder how it will sound the next 3050 with announced DSPs cappabilities over DSU...(right now if you use DSU You can't use DSPs cause there is no enough processing power with the current DSP chips)

Hi All,

just made the swap from my trusty old Denon to a Yamaha Aventage RX-A2040, i had a few questions if anyone has done similar with one. I see they can do a simultaneous 2 zones and planned to have it configured like below so I could have Video / Audio different in each Zone.

HDMI OUT 1 - Home Theater TV (Displaying Media Browser 3 from Intel NUC 1)
HDMI OUT 2 - Sitting Room TV (Displaying Media Browser 3 from Intel NUC 2)
5.1 Speakers - Home Theatre Speakers
2.0 Speakers - Sitting Room Speakers

All would be controlled by iRule, just curious if anyone has had something setup similar and if there were any tricks to getting it perfect, in the manual it looks great.

thanks in advance
iain

Yep, buying anything that's labeled for "4K" aka Blu Ray Player, A/V Receiver, or TV is basically pointless until the 4K Blu Ray format is finalized which means if you actually intend to consume 4K copyright protected content you need to wait for 2016 and 2017 hardware. The only people that should be buying 4K hardware right now is people just building setups for PC games.

Since I posted the question I have learned that it might be to prevent burned fingers when the AVR gets hot. We all know how popular lawsuits are in the USA.

Now that I've tried to "plug in" an external HDD to a 2040/3040 only to discover it must be FAT32 formatted, my question now is: what happens when you "plug in" a drive with multiple FAT32 logical partitions/drives? Does it only recognize the first one, or all? Can you navigate through the individual drives? I'm trying to figure out if I'm wasting my time with one large HDD (must be NTFS formatted), or should I just get a couple of 32 Gig USB flash drives?

What size is your one drive and why must it be formatted NTFS?

Windows will prevent you from using FAT32 on large drives (they want to force NTFS), but there are tools to partition and format large drives as FAT32. That's assuming your drive is not larger than the limits of FAT32.

I don't think it's plastic. It's just that it is not black for whatever reason.. (But I may be wrong and it may well be plastic)

I have a 1 TB Western Digital Passport drive that must be formatted NTFS...because they are so large. I have created smaller (32 GB) partitions and formatted FAT32, but now I need to know if I've just turned one "big" problem into many "smaller" problems.

Sorry I do not have the answer to your original question.

However you should have no problems formatting that 1 TB as FAT32. FAT32 drive size limit is 2TB. Windows will probably limit you to 32GB with their built-in formatting tools

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_Al...on_Table#FAT32

Article references a tool that will format that drive for you:

Article references a tool that will format that drive for you:

Now THAT is helpful. I'm going to try and convert the entire 1 TB and then re-load it (which is what I originally set out to do). Thanks!

I have the RXV1077 - almost identical to RXA1040 but for $800
(canadian) on sale, and the top is a plastic shield overlay thing.
I've already ripped it out, it's held by little plastic clamps that
are held by the top metal case, vent holes match up in both.
So basically once it's taken off it looks way nicer
