You'll want to check their return policies during the pandemic.
Be careful, they pay for shipping when it is something on their end, but if you select "no longer need" they will hit you for the shipping, which on
an AVR is pricey.

More power!

I've been reading on Polk forums that their SDA SRS speakers are very power hungry. I tend to agree, as my 100w/pc Pioneer VSX-1131 has a hard time going loud... Just with the big mains. All others seem OK. It has no pre-outs. I see my options as
1) upgrading to higher power receiver
2) upgrade to receiver with Pre-outs & get an amp
3) get separates
Leaning towards #3 , but are there any good Multichannel Pre-pros that are under $1000? 5.1.2 as a minimum
Also how would that setup do a zone2 like my 1131 does? & I like that Chromecast is built in.
Would there be a noticeable improvement in a separate pre-pro over using a receiver with pre-outs?
I saw that some Yamaha receivers have a 2 channel pre-out. Do the crossover settings apply to it?

It looks like they are back in stock (maybe?) but I can't see price since I'm not a member. My parents are members and I usually buy through them, but they don't have an online account. Can a member please check price and availability and post here? Thanks much.

I just checked Costco online as a member and don't see the Yamaha TSR-7850 being available. You might have to go to the store to see if they have any. Sorry.

It's just the Denon ones that are back. Yamaha's are in store only and had the * on the price tag, meaning it won't be re-stocked.

EDIT: Every Costco I've been to these past few weeks has quite a few of the Yamaha's. But they're stubbornly sticking to the $489.99 price for now.

Why did you have to bring that up? That has been troubling me and the reason the x1600h looks appealing. Now I won’t sleep for another night. Thanks a lot!

Ha ha! I am still worried about it too. Would be interested in hearing a discussion about atmos virtualization vs. no atmos.

Is it possible to send an update to the 3500 to add support for Atmos virtualization?
Has this been discussed and where. Thanks.

I am a noob too and will defer to those with more experience, but when I spoke to Crutchfield about this they said there is no firmware update for atmos virtualization for the x3500. I did check the Denon firmware website page and couldn't find anything that would suggest otherwise. Hope someone with more experience will chime in on the utility and availability of atmos virtualization.
Thanks

You should ask your question in the 2018 Denon Owners thread:
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-re...sts-1-8-a.html

It was added to the 2019 Denons last year, so I doubt it will be coming to the 2018s at this point.

Like Baff stated, only available on the 2019 models. Center Spread was dropped for the Atmos Virtualization from what I've read.

I found a deal on a Denon X3500H, but it's a refurbished unit and I've never bought a refurb so that makes me nervous. Have you guys ever had any issues buying a refurbished receiver?

Buy from an authorized dealer, refurb or not. Find out what the warranty status is. I think it is 1 year for Denon refurbs.

I've never bought a refurb AVR. I have bought a lot of refurb Macs directly from Apple. Same warranty as new. Haven't had any more problems than I have with new computers.

With a non-authorized dealer, I'd be concerned that they might be selling you an "open box" return, rather than a refurb.

I haven't bought from them either, but a lot of people do. They are authorized: "Accessories4less is a factory authorized reseller for Denon Factory refurbished products. Remember all refurbished products include a 1 year factory warranty, all original accessories, and a 30 day DOA prepaid defective exchange (should it be required)."

I would certainly buy a refurb from them before I would buy a floor model from absolutely anyone.

In case anyone is still looking, the Yamaha TSR-7850 sold by Costco is marked down to $449.99 until 7/16. It's on clearance so not available online, but local stores may still carry it.

Yamaha TSR7850 (refurb)

Upcoming deal on Woot.com, goes live 07/16. Should be priced below $300 (last woot sale was $279.90). Tends to sell out quickly.
