    Hi all - Just got the Denon as a gift. How's it compared to my Yamaha? , I feel like the Yamaha is under powereing my speakers - Polk 70s and 40s & Cs10 & BIC f12s X2. One of these recievers will go upstairs for a basic 3.1 set up but want to keep the best for my home theatre. Thanks.

    There has been a sudden loss of output to the main/front speakers which are driven by an external amp the signal of which comes from the Pre-Out. The external amp is fine, and the receiver is otherwise OK. If have the receiver set itself up automatically using the microphone, it has to increase...

    I've had a few problems with my HTPC setup that I've just been living with, but are really starting to irk me, and more importantly, my new girlfriend won't even touch the TV because it's so hard to use, so I'm hoping someone here may have an answer. 1) For whatever reason, my Yamaha RX-A700...

    A couple of months ago I got a Yamaha RX-A700. Plays CDs, DVD-A, DVD's fine through my player but went to play a SACD this morning and got no sound. With not alot of knowledge I don't know what it might be. SACD? DSD? HDMI cables? I am at a loss. Ideas? Thanks.

    Good morning all, I'm trying to update the firmware on my RX-A700 receiver. This firmware is the same for a RX-V667, RX-A700, or RX-A800. I've downloaded the WAV file, burned it to a CD, and put it in my (borrowed) 101 Disc changer, connected the Optical out to the receiver and the changer...

    I was able to get both of these for close to the same price (with the Yamaha being about $40 cheaper). I don't care for networking as I have plenty of other devices that already do all that. For sound quality for movies, tv, games - which of these is the best?
