The AVS Yamaha TSR-5790 & TSR-579 Owner's Thread

Hi Everyone,
I just saw a new arrival at my local Costco, Yamaha TSR-5790.
I assume this is the price club variation of RX-V579, the specs on and the picture of the back confirms this, except "MusicCast" is absent from the spec sheet.

The lowest I've seen 579 was $500, which makes this a good deal, not to mention getting add'l year of warranty through AmEx and the nice return policy of Costco.

I've been in the market for a new receiver for a long time, and this may be my chance, although I was hoping to get one with upscaling so I can finally use a single HDMI from my AVR for my analog and component devices, but I think this price may convince me to let go of that requirement. Or should I wait for TSR-7790 (if it ever makes it to Costco)

The price is $390

I saw this too, and didn't find a lot of reviews on this model, seems to have a lot of the good stuff, anyone have it and care to share their opinion? Looks like it is a "this years" model, and not an outdated one. . .

Yes, I was looking at this one too--seems to be a rebranded v579 for Costco and maybe other retailers. Same specs, including the single HDCP 2.2 port, so it's not an older/outdated model. I'd be surprised if this didn't include MusicCast; I'm guessing that's just an error on their spec page.

Honestly, I'm not even sure $390 is a good deal for the v579, given its lack of features compared to some of the other 7.2 receivers this year. There's not a lot of improvements over the v577:

http://faq.yamaha.com/us/en/article/...k_u/10916/8722

Basically, it comes down to 1 HDCP 2.2 port and internal bluetooth. I don't know how you'd expect to get by with just a single HDCP 2.2 port in the future once you have a 4K cable box and UHD Blu-Ray player. If 4K isn't a consideration, then it's probably be better to go for a discounted 2014 model instead of this one. But if you want to be 4K-ready, go for something like the Denon S710W for just $40 more right now and you get ALL HDCP 2.2 ports, Atmos and DTS:X, Audyssey...

I dunno, I guess if Yamaha reliability and Costco's return policy were worth it to you for the piece of mind you'd pick this up.

For a quick comparison of all recent Yamaha models including their TSR-7790 version, see this link:

http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio..._&mode=compare


Comparison of 77 vs 79 line:
http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio..._&mode=compare


Like Marauder said, it all comes down to Costco's return policy, add'l 1 year warranty (not sure if warranty is relevant with Costco's return policy) and the competitive price (basically getting 579 for the price of 479). These are all good factors if someone was in the market for a receiver.

While he is making a good point on this not being a big improvement over 577, I can't seem to find 577 for anything cheaper than $350, or even $300 if you consider cash backs/incentives/promotions. However, 477, on the other hand, had a great day recently for $200 on fry's, otherwise $250 at most retailers (currently goes for $300) So if wifi or 7.2 is not a major concern and hdcp 2.2 is not a requirement, 477 can be a good buy too, but then we are going into budget line of receivers, even though power-wise they are in same wattage level.

So what would the AVS veterans recommend in this situation?

I should add that 677 can be had for around $375 nowadays, so this would be an upgrade over 579 with exception of hdcp 2.2, especially considering 677 has analog to digital upscaling/conversion. (Oddly, no bluetooth, though)

Anyone hook up a PC to this and see if it can pass [email protected] with 4:4:4 subsampling? Also is there an option to just use 5.1 speaker setting?

Help with new HT setup

Hi everyone
I just replaced my busted Onkyo TX SR 701 receiver with the new Yamaha TSR 5790 from Costco.
Hook up with my Klipsch speakers was a breeze, but I am distinctly underwhelmed by the weak sound. This is most likely my fault due to ignorance about calibrating!
I did run the YPAO auto setup but the output sounds merely adequate.
I have new Klipsch R 15 bookshelfs for front L & R and R 25 center and quintets for surround. I can return the L C R speakers as I only bought them on Sept 14 from BestBuy. And buy a different set maybe Hsu or other.
I will appreciate advice from the knowledgeable folks on AVS to resolve my problems/ choices.
Thanks
Sean

Could it be that the sound signature is different?

Thanks for posting.

I concluded it was best not to get saddled with speakers i was unhappy with. So I returned the Klipsch LCR , and after further research and agonizing over choices, I chose the widely admired Ascend 340 SE for L/C/R. For the rear LR and the front presence LR I am using my Quintets for now. Probably going with 2 pairs of the Ascend 170 SE speakers to replace the Quintets next.

I also got a budget 12" Sub (Klipsch 12 HG) and the Yamaha V 779 AVR.

This is my first attempt at upgrading my HT since recently discarding my 2004 Onkyo HTIB .

I realized that despite having decent kit, setting up is hard to do! Still working on the Sub placement and tweaking the AVR. I have achieved a decent overall sound but I have a feeling I can improve the cinema experience with further messing around!

I am always interested in learning what other guys did to optimize their HT set up. So any input along these lines is welcomed.

Thanks

I recently purchased this receiver at Costco for $339.99, with free 2-business day shipping. See Costco web site for further details. The biggest improvement over my old receiver (Onyko TX-SR674) purchased in 2006 is the built in Spotify channel with Bluetooth. It was an unexpected bonus. You will still need a tablet or other bluetooth mobile device to activate Spotify. I hope to replace my speakers in 2016 and will rely on the advice of one or two of my music tech friends. The receiver works with all of my other equipement including an old Pioneer CD player that accepts the 6 pack cartridges from about 1990! I think the receiver is good value for the money.

I just got Teo 5790 in the mail and want to hook up my turntable. Do I now need to buy a preamp? Seriously?
Please advise.

Yes, you need a preamp. I believe you can get a small one from ebay for like $25-$30.

This is $279 on Woot (refurbished), seems like a decent deal. Or go for the TSR-7790BL, which is an rx-v779 clone, for $200 more.

Thanks, Since I returned my TSR-7790 to Costco, this might be a great opportunity.
What's more interesting is that this comes with 1 year warranty according to listing. That's a big plus.

Does anyone know if AmEx or Discover protection/warranty extension work on Refurbished units? (I checked, looks like Discover doesn't but Amex does.)

I would not get the 779 for $479 refurb since it was on sale for much less at Costco previously (new) 579 was $340 on sale (plus the tax based on $380) as well so $280 is a good price for that.

Tsr-5790bl

I just purchased this amp replacing my 25 year old JVC. It will be my first amp with HDMI inputs. Question: Can I plug Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV dongles directly into the HDMI-in ports on the back of the amp or must they continue to be directly plugged into my flat screen TV?

Yes, it will work, you can plug them all into the AVR.

PS: I was told that some Costco warehouse locations have this on clearance. Currently lowest I've seen this is $330 after $50 instant rebate (which is $389.99 + TAX - $50) but some members spotted this for $300 on Clearance. So far 3 warehouses I checked did not list this on sale or clearance but it's pending deletion.

Thank you you for your reply. I grabbed the TSR-5790BL (refurbished) for $279 on Woot. It is arriving today and I am looking forward to setting it up!

Yeah, that's a really good price, I hope it arrives top notch with no issues.
Costco confirmed it being "deleted" from their system, but they are not willing to lower the price because they apparently sold enough of them, in worst case they said they can send it back to manufacturer and get back what they paid. Some stores still had more than 15 of them, so they dropped them in clearance, but some stores sold good amount and have only 4-5 left, so they remain at regular price, with not even a rebate in place.

Keep us posted.

I've got an old school box Toshiba Cinema CRT HDTV still running strong. Has Component and DVI in's... no HDMI. I'm using an HDMI to DVI converter for some of my components which are DirectTV DVR and WDTV Player. I also have an XBOX 360 hooked up via Component cables. Question: I want to get this at Costco, but can I send all my various HDMI's and Components etc to the Receiver then go from HDMI receiver to the tv (with coverter adaptor to DVI) so that I don't have to keep switching the TV's inputs and just rely on the Receiver for switching?

Trying to decide on the newer model Costco deal (which is new for $320 in store) or Fry's has this TSR-5790 (seems like last year's model) REFURB on sale today for $250 no tax shipped.
Thanks for the years and years of advice you all have provided and Merry Christmas!

Probably not a lot of people in your situation using a HDMI to DVI connector to a CRT. best way is to buy and try it out.
Costco has an easy return policy and the TSR-5810 is newer with better features so I'd buy that one.

I assume you'll connect your Xbox 360 with a HDMI cable to the new receiver because it doesn't have Component video inputs.

581 is on sale for $320 now, great price.
If I didn't have the RXA550, I'd jump on it, but one thing 581 lacks is Wifi that I love on my RX. I just LOVE my RX.

Oh sorry about the confusion, I don't know what I was thinking. This makes TSR-5810 at $320 a great deal.
I am not sure what would be the main difference between that and RX-A550 other than the 2 channels that I don't use or Atmos. I got my RX-A550 for $250, so I am still happy with that price for that device. Did they upgrade the GUI in x81 series?

RX-A550 is a 5.1 receiver, RX-V581 is 7.1 plus can do 5.1.2 for Dolby Atmos

A550 only has 1 HDMI input for 4K UHD and it is not HDR compatible. All HDMI inputs on RX-V581 are 4K UHD and HDR compatible.

Don't know about the GUI interface on either unit.

Hello everyone!

Looking for a little help and/or advice on an issue that recently started up with my receiver.

Yamaha TSR-5810 BL
Definitive Technology BP-10B
Definitive Technology ProCenter 2000
Definitive Technology SuperCube 8000
Definitive Technology SR9040
Sony XBR65X900c

I've owned the receiver for just over 6 months now, connecting both DirectTV and my PS3 through HDMI. Initial use of the system to this point has been very good but we've noticed the sound started skipping, or pausing, periodically. At first it took the impression it was specific channels, so I thought it was the DirectTV received, then it progressed to be all the time, and finally reached the point where the video signal would drop completely on selections, such as recorded shows or channel changes. I removed it and went back to my soundbar until I get it figured out.

I have switched out the HDMI cables, all are Monster 24k grade, so they are good cables, and have no issues watching shows or playing games on the PS3. I validated that it was officially the Yamaha when I reconnected the DirectTV receiver to the TV. It functions without any video or audio problems through HDMI ports 2 or 4 on the TV.

I'm planning to go back to Costco today and see if it's past their limitation on audio/video returns but thought I would post the issue and see if anyone else has experienced this, or similar problems. If I can't return it then I'll be searching for warranty support from Yamaha.

Thanks in advance!

Hey all,

I have the TSR-5790 and find myself consistently switching between the Sound Programs when watching movies trying to find the best match. It's annoying because I spend the first couple of minutes trying to dial in the best sound. Is this common or do you pick one and stick with it? I am interested in getting the most from the system I have in my basement theater. Thanks for sharing your habits regarding these Sound Programs. (Standard, Spectacle, Sci-Fi, Adventure, Drama, Mono Movie, Sports, Action Game, Roleplaying Game)

Rx-v579 Bluetooth and Roku

All,

I have a Samsung TV connected to my Yamaha rx-v579. When I have Bluetooth connected and playing music, and the the TV is on I the signal coming from the HDMI 4 input. In this case the ROKU is plugged into HDMI 4.

I like this feature. I can search for movies on Netflix without stopping the music.

Is this a feature I turned on that I can enable for the other HDMI inputs somehow?

What is this feature called?
