And you can still find the TSR-5830 on the Yamaha site. If it is a Costco-specific version, then one shouldn't be able to purchase it anywhere else but Costco, and the model number would not be listed on the Yamaha site.
EDIT: After further research I discovered that they in fact are almost identical, so my apologies to ChromeJob for questioning him. Now, if I can just figure out how to set individual x-overs..........
You can find the Costco models on Accessories4less and other vendors. The change in model number is to prevent price-matching at big box and other vendors with a model that Costco sells at an established lower price. Doesn’t mean that can’t be resold elsewhere as first sale or second sale purchases., as you discovered.
This last year, with the 7850, they seem to have provided Costco with a model that isn’t available elsewhere; it seems like a mongrel mix of the RX-v685 and RX-a780 (the chassis, detachable power cord, and front faceplate are clearly in common with the RX-A model). But I’m sure it’ll turn up elsewhere, particularly after they offered double-digit rebate discounts over the holidays and early 2019.
If you’re referring to bass mgmt crossovers for each pair of speakers, I believe you have to get an RX-A model. But I don’t have ready access to your OM where I am at the moment, so I may be wrong.

Probably not, unless Yamaha has specified that any of the older *83 series AVRs will get HDMI 2.1-ish features via firmware update. Search this thread and others, I believe we’ve posted a link to a Yamaha page that identifies what new features will be offered in what AVRs via firmware
. I think only the highest *83 models got new features, lower models like the 683, 583, et al would not.
