Yamaha Aventage a1080 or a3080 ?
Well water got on my downstairs HT Aventage a2010 😟. Looks like it’s time to get a new receiver. 🙂. The AI surround sounds pretty cool. Supposed to help with hearing dialog when switching scenes which would be pretty great.
What real benefits would I get with the 3080 over the 1080? I found the 3080 for as low as $1200 used $1500 new. The $1080 for $750 used and $1000 new.
Upstairs I have the rx-a3070. I was considering getting the 3080 and putting it up there. I do have XLR connections on my speakers with adaptors right now. 3080 has them built in.
I guess I am thinking the 3080 may be overkill for my low end speakers and projector downstairs. I am about to pull the trigger on a new 4K laser DLP projector downstairs so video processing is important.
