Should I buy a Yamaha aventage RX-A1020

As the title states I have the opportunity to purchase locally a used Yamaha aventage RX-A1020 . I know it's an older model but I'm building on a budget and it appears to do everything I need at this stage. I'll be building a small home theater in my basement after I finish the kitchen remodel and thought this might be a decent fit.

Opinions?

Thank you,
Joe

My 2¢: If it's fully functional (and in decent or better condition), go for it.

As long as you're aware that the RX-A1020 doesn't pass a 4K signal you should be fine. It only has HDMI 1.4a so it can't pass a 4K signal nor is it HDCP 2.2 compliant.

Good solid receiver though.

I don't know how to quote properly yet.

I thought based on the specs I read that it has 4K pass through and upscaling. Are the specs wrong or an I under informed?
Thank you

According to the product page:
Quote:
4K Ultra HD Pass-through and upscaling - Yes
According to pg. 136 of the owner's manual (PDF), it'll do 4K pass-through on HDMI and also upconvert to 4K on HDMI from both its HDMI and analogue inputs.

That receiver was released well before 4K specs were finalized. Since then you need HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 to pass thru 4K copy protected content.

What sources are you planning to use with this AVR? and what is your display device (TV)?

It can do 4k in a special mode that supports HDMI 1.4b. Basically it's 4k30 in yuv420 mode. HDMI 2.0 is needed if you want 4k60, HDR or even just yuv444 or rgb888 mode. It doesn't support HDCP 2.2 which is required for modern 4k content from UHD Blu-Ray or streaming sources. It's ok for lower end 4k streaming boxes that play unprotected content, if supported. But that's it.

Ok, gotcha. I went ahead and and bought it, ended up getting it for 250 and it's in perfect condition with remote and he thru in some tower speakers I can use for garage speakers (older KLH's). I'll be using the receiver mostly with an Nvidia shield and Blu Ray player. The video will be sent to my older InFocus IN5110 which is only a 1080p projector. Eventually I will upgrade everything but my budget is limited right now with the remodels. Thanks for all the input and helping me learn some new information. Have a great weekend!
