    Hello guys, At first I hope this section is right for my Thread. Otherwise please move it. I am from Germany and new at this nice forum. I want to show you my new Home Theatre and gaming room which is separated from our house and has been planned and built by myself. Unfortunately it is...

    Hi All, Im currently running a Yamaha RX-V3900, cerwin vega e-715 mains, cv e-6c centre & jay car kit speakers as rears. Since upgrading from my RX-V3200 the E715's don't seem to have the same thump when listening to music & sound a lethargic / lacking detail when played anything less than...

    So I recently grabbed a 60" vt Panasonic plasma, however my Yamaha v661 cannot pass 3d over hdmi. In researching new receivers I've noticed that pre outs are far less common. Currently my Yamaha is paired with an emotiva xpa amp, driving a 5.1 system with RS-1000 rockets from the now defunct...

    Well I picked up a full b&w fpm surround sound setup (5.0) and am building my own sub (Marty sub box with inuke 3000dsp) so next on the list is a receiver to finish the setup off! I am not looking to spend much, as my speakers/sub already tapped me out pretty well. My only requirements are...

    So I think most of us realize that an AVR is already old tech in 3-4 years after you purchase it, or at the very least there is something new and flashy that you would rather have. This is the reason that we should all be using processors and separate amplifiers. Most of you seem to realize...

    I've been very happy with my Emotiva UMC-1 until recently when I was forced to flash the firmware due to it crashing. With the upgraded firmware I'm getting all sorts of drop outs with my cable box and I'm tired of the slow video switching, so looking for some advice on upgrading. Usage: 30%...

    I am trying to decide between the three listed in the title. I will use it for both Music and HT. The center and the surround will come later. The room dimensions are 16X17X9. Mostly listen to rock and jazz. I have a Martin Logan Dynamo 500 subwoofer. Will probably replace that by a Rythmic at...

    I've searched the internet and this forum and get conflicting answers so thought I'd start a new thread. I'm buying a new TV soon that is 3D capable (Panasonic TC-P55ST60). Does anyone have an RX-V3900 that they use to play 3D content? If yes, how did you get it to work? When I bought...

    The discovery of AVS Forums many years ago was solely instrumental in my RX-V3900 purchase. The primary use of this receiver was to exploit the Network options with special emphasis on music streaming from my PC and distributing to additional zones. It has been flawless with Windows XP and...

    Hi guys, I recently purchased a used RX-V3900 to replace my RX-V3200, I was very happy with my RX-V3200 and just wanted HDMI, internet radio and a few extra more modern conveniences with out a sacrifice of power. I have connected Cerwin Vega E-715 speakers which when paired to the RX-V3200...

    So, I've been given a pretty good offer on one of these units. I don't care about latest bells and whistles, as long as I get good sound for music, movies, TV. I use a 5.1, room is not big. Which receiver is better? Is Yamaha RX-A2010 worth extra $250??? thank you

    I am noticing that there are plenty of posts from people who are having trouble with their new or relatively new AVR's. What brand or brands of AVR are generally most trouble free? I'm happy to hear both opinions and data. (For example, I'm not sure if Consumer Reports tracks AVR reliability...

    The mainboard in the Yamaha RX-V3900 I use in my theater died a couple of weeks ago. It'll cost around $800 to get it repaired, which is 60% of what I paid for the receiver 3.5 years ago, so I'm a little torn on whether to fix it or to just get a new receiver. Any advice you guys can provide...

    I am running HDMI from set top box into RX-V3900 - pass through works great. Up-scaling works great when unit is powered on. Here is the question. Is it possible and if so what are the correct settings for: Viewing (On the Display) set top box signal with the RX-V3900 power on and also...

    Like the title says, just this week it stopped powering up. I can hear the relay click when you press the power button. I purchased it in 01/2008 and for the length of time I've had it, it doesn't really have many hours of use. The nearest Yamaha service center is over an hour away and they...
