Best AV Receiver for fluance. Under $1000

Hey everyone I'm new to the forum. I'm looking around for a 7.2 receiver for a set of fluance signature series home theatre speakers.
https://www.fluance.com/signature-se...ystem-blackash

I've been seeing alot of sites saying onkyo and Sony make a good reciever.

Basically I want so ething that will drive those speakers, and have good connectivity to things like Google home and smartphones. 4k compatible, spotify. And still good quality sound. I've always kind of had a soft spot for pioneer. As I'm a big fan of their vintage integrated 2 channel amps. But I know that's a different kind of beast.

I currently have a Samsung home theatre in a box. And its on it's way out and I told my wife we are not getting another one. I want better.

Any help would be appreciated with this. Thanks

Feel free to browse some threads dedicated to AVRs and ask questions of those who own those you’re interested in.

You're on the right track in choosing a receiver based on its features - there isn't a 'best match' for any speaker, as receivers generally operate in the same manner.

The Marantz 7012 is currently on sale (non-refurb) for $999. You are going to be vey hard pressed to beat that deal.


I have only ever owned Yamaha and Marantz. While I like Yamahas and they have a solid reputation for being the very reliable, I have yet to have any issues and favor the Marantz.
Marantz Pros:
Warmer sound than Yamaha (if that's your thing)
Better 2 channel sound (stereo, direct, pure)
Easier set up (I'm technologically remedial)
I love Heos and Spotify integration (could never get it to work on my Yamaha)
The Bluetooth connectivity gives me more range and doesn't cut out
Audyssey room correction is MUCH better than YPAO in my experience
Power specs are not as inflated as Yamahas


Yamaha pros:
Brighter sound but not in a bad way by any means (more detailed might be another way to word it?)
Better multichannel sound
On the fly audio adjustments that do not require you to go into a separate menu
On the fly subwoofer adjustments
More sound modes/EQ options to play with
Full display on front of receiver (porthole on the Marantz bothers me)
Runs relatively cool compared to the Marantz

A minor point: the SR7012 has a full-sized display behind its flip-down front panel cover. If you're willing to leave that open, you don't have to suffer from the "porthole" display.

I'm not sure that I'd have recommended an SR7012 over a Denon AVR-X4400H, but the small price difference between the 2017 closeouts make the SR7012 an attractive choice.

Denon AVR-X3500H is on sale at Crutchfield and a few other places for $749 and it's supposed to be a really great 7.2 receiver, another worthy contender is Yamaha RX-A880 which can be had for $899. One more worthy option is the Onkyo TX-RZ730 which is on sale at Amazon for $549 and it's by far the most feature-packed and most future-proofing receiver of the three, a very good option if you're going to do a 5.1.4 or a 7.1.4 (must require a external amp to process the final 2 channels) Atmos/DTS:X home theater.

My current mancave room setup:
Vizio V436-G1 4K HDR TV | LG UBK90 4K Blu-ray player | Denon AVR-S740H AV Receiver (running 5.1.2 Atmos/DTS:X) | Xbox One X | Amazon Fire Stick 4K

Just to add to what @Zoland2020 said, the x3500h often goes on sale at Frys if you can wait. They have the x4500h on sale right now for under $1k

The x4500h can do 11 channels like the rz730, but it's $300 more.

Spoiler!

Guys, a reminder is probably due that street price discussions are limited to the "Deals thread." I've been told MSRP is okay to post anywhere, but sale prices, street prices are not allowed in other threads.

Just saying it before the wrath of a mod descends upon us.

The lightening seems to strike at random. Maybe there are triggers that attract it, but I don't know what they are.

New user, single post ... I'd urge the OP to spend some time reading recent threads. If interested in specific brands or models, read the "owners'" threads to get a feel for gripes and huzzahs. It's sometimes presumed that forum members are unpaid sale assistants who can perform purchase research. That's Google they're thinking of. This forum has posts and articles aplenty for the inquisitive person to do some research before asking "tell me what to buy."

tl;dr: go to Costco, buy the Yamaha TSR-7850 while there's a rebate. Fine 7-channel receiver, great value for the price, excellent post-sales support and return options. Done.

Sure. I don't call down the forum gods to strike lightning and leave a smoking crater where someone posted a street price. We're adults here, if someone forgets this relatively newish forum policy, a simple suggestion should be enough.

Lol I'm not from Google. I'm just wondering some options on what would work well with the speakers in the link I shared.

There's no magic formula of AVRs that will "work well" with Fluance speakers. Most anything will work fine, including my recommendation.

Short answer: there is no "best" receiver to go with Fluance speakers.
