Onkyo TX-RZ820 vs Yamaha RX-A770

So I'm replacing my current yammy rx-v663.... its old and time to go.


Current speakers are:


GoldenEar array 3d XL

RSL C34E for rears
BIC F12 sub


I have a newer 75 sony 4k hdr tv

We watch movies/ tv/ music through our new 4k firestick.

Yamaha AVRs have a reputation for the best reliability and you're probably used to the interface so you should probably stick with the Yamaha.

I have the 820 and think it's a great AVR but I came from a 9 year old HK so I only have that to compare it to.

If you do not mind refurbished, for almost the same price as the rx-a770 you could get a denon x3400, onkyo rz810, Yamaha rx-a860/870 or rx-a1060 on sale. All of them have phono and pre-outs for external amplification, except the x3400h, which doesn't have phono input. That was my favorite until I got back into vinyl so now I am seriously looking at the rx-a1060.

Keep us posted!

Both of these units Im comparing are refurbished... My budget is 400-500. Reasoning for going refurbished. But thanks for the suggestions!



Still not sure what way to go...

I am not sure what the rules are about price talk, but all of the receivers I mentioned are less than $500. I recommended them because I am looking at every one of them in depth as my budget is $500 max too.

@Kini62 has life experience with the beast rz820 and said its great, so take an in-depth look at that one as it too is less than $500 right now.


Good luck!

I have the Yamaha RX-A770BL and sounds great. Had an older Marantz 50xx AVR quite a while ago and the Yamaha sounds as good, maybe better but could be the shiny new thing factor
