With just a quick look at pictures of the products, it appears the TX-V2700 has multi-channel preamp outputs. The TSR-7850 appears to lack multi-channel preamp outputs. If you plan to use an external multichannel amplifier in the future then the 7850 won't do the job.

The previous Yamaha AVR offered by Costco had multichannel preamp outputs. It is unfortunate that Costco has cheapened the product. It is hard to know what other corners may have been cut in the most recent product, if any. In some product categories, Costco seems to be moving more toward selling lower-end products made with very low labor costs vs. selling better products at good prices.

@Packardbarry the 7850 is well liked here on the forum and just happens to be on sale at Coscto. It does have preouts for the front LR channels only if you feel your speakers need more power. It is a newer unit with all of the newest 4k features, but much less powerful than your old 2700.

Costco hasn't cheapened the product, they have nothing to do with it. Blame Yamaha.

The Yamaha TSR-7850 is based on the RX-V685 and RX-A780. The previous year's models RX-V683 and RX-A770 didn't have preouts at all, so two front preouts were added to this year's models. That's an upgrade.The older TSR-7810 that Costco once sold was based on the RX-V781 which had a full set of preouts. Yamaha discontinued making RX-V78x series models a couple years back. There is no RX-V783 or RX-V785.

Yamaha still lists the TSR-7810 on their web site as a current model. https://usa.yamaha.com/products/audi...mps/index.html I wonder whether they are still for sale, new, anywhere?

The TSR-7810 is a 2016 or 2017 model. It only has 3 HDCP 2.2 HDMI inputs of the 5 available on back. It doesn't do Airplay 2 or have the ability to user MusicCast 20 and 50 speakers as 5.1 surrounds. The TSR-7850 has those features.

Don't kill the messenger:

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-re...ls-sticky.html

you can start a thread in the deals forum on the yamaha special, but ownership has asked we don't discuss street pricing and where to buy in the tech forum.

Side note: Ebay links are never allowed even in the deals forum.
