We will find out in 2 days when GMan78's order is scheduled to ship. Even a 3050 @ that price would be great!
I'm not absolutely sure how bad the pricing mistake was, but it seems to have been hundreds of dollars. I think they had it listed for $105, and the only listing now is through a 3rd party for approximately $450. I'm also not absolutely certain that the item was being sold directly by Amazon.

Amazon is the only place I know that is willing to lose money to keep a customer happy.

If you look on Ebay you will find brand new 3050 all day long at ~$1550 SHIPPED (shipping + ebay fees = $130?) from "unauthorized dealers" but that gives you some idea that $1400 is still making Amazon a profit. (considering free 2-day shipping)

No big deal for me but it will be interesting to see if anyone gets what was ordered. (I bet on yes)

PS- One time I bought a memory card from Amazon and NEEDED it that weekend. Ordered it and it arrived on Saturday but it was the wrong one. The one I needed was unavailable for overnight delivery so they sent me to Best Buy to purchase the correct one and they credited me for the full amount BB was charging plus a refund on the wrong card. They lost about $60 that day but I ended up spending $1000's more ever since.+ word of mouth!

I have a quick question, the 1060 will be my first Yamaha receiver coming from a Denon. Is there an onscreen volume overlay like there is on the Denon? My AVR will be tucked away out of sight and I really like being able to see the volume overlay while still watching a movie or cable. I read over the 1050 user manual and I saw no mention of an overlay or any controls for it (like appearing on top/bottom of the screen. Thanks for your help.

I'd have to say yes, I think every receiver does that.

That is strange that if they are shipping in two business days - that there wouldn't be more known about them - and they wouldn't be up on Yamaha's site...

Resellers do get stock much earlier than release but Id agree this is a little too early if the OP release dates are correct.

That's what I question more than anything... Amazon states I will have two 3060s come Thursday. Typically the high-end guys ship later and the lower end models haven't even shipped. Something is off and I think the percentage of them showing up next week is zero.

Yes you have a volume overlay and can turn it on or off (in the manual it's under "short message"). Unlike Denon there's no choice of position.

But now you can control the receiver from an App you can see the volume displayed on your phone/tablet and don't need the volume overlay.

With the 3060 models out does that mean the 3050 will be on clearance soon? Double drats on not reading AVS for a couple days and missing Amazon sale.

Well, hopefully someone will be starting the 3060 owners thread this coming week

Because I think I have decided that it is going to be my new AVR.

Unless Yamaha is introducing a new pre-pro - which seems like a distinct possibility.

Does anyone know of an instance where an avr manufacturer produces pre-production units and offers them at a discount prior to the planned introduction? I know that Power Sound Audio has offered discounted prices recently with new subwoofer models, but they are clearly marketed as intro prices. It seems that if this was the case with the Amazon units, there would be some type of disclosure or they would have been marketed as a limited time price. There was nothing in the offer that indicated anything other than "new condition".

I preordered the 2060 and the 3060 on amazon before the page went down. Both say they are shipping tomorrow. I'm trying to decide which one to cancel. Is the 3060 worth $300 more than the 2060 after tax?

I know this has been mentioned before, but it does not make sense. The A3060 was scheduled to be one of the last 2016 models produced, with a release date of July. RX-A860 and A1060 should be shipping ahead of the A3060.

It really depends on how many speakers you need to handle. For 7.1.4 or 9.1.2, there is only one option. Less than that, I'd say the 2060 is fine. But most likely both will be canceled for you.

Well if you are so certain then you may as well cancel both orders.

Cancel neither. If they actually ship for that price then resell the one you do not want on AVS and pass along the savings.

My pre orders are still in the on deck circle, no "preparing to be shipped" status yet. They may actually be on the bench, if so it's weird Amazon is letting this go for so long. Either they do intend to fulfill the orders or this is a huge oversight.

If Amazon plans to cancel the orders, why haven't they done so? From a customer handling and satisfaction standpoint, it seems they would be better off to do so sooner than later. I see no advantage for Amazon in delaying it. A few days ago, I would have bet the orders would not ship. The longer this goes on, I think the chances increase that they will fulfill the orders. I may be wrong, but that's my perspective.

It's not an oversight. Not at this point. If it were, they would not have shut down the listings.

My guess is they got a very early shipment of 3060's or this will be the new 3050 price.

Im still betting on them shipping (something) cause they would have cancelled them by now. You really think they would cancel it right before it ships?

If anything, the estimated date will push back or you guys get a 3050

Keep us updated!

I'd love to do that but I don't want to be on the hook for an extra 1200 or 1500 on my credit card bill until I resell it. I think I'm going to go with the 3060 so I don't regret it later when I look to expand my speaker collection.

My guess... it all comes down to when they (again) list the 2016 models will they "be tied" to the current orders or not. If they are Amazon will sell them at the order's price when they become available... months from now. If they aren't eventually you'll receive an email stating we won't be receiving any stock and your order has been cancelled.

How about we get back to talking about the 2016 Aventage models and not Amazon?
