Hello,

I bought a RX-V565 receiver to replace an old 2090 I have. Not pleased with it & it's getting returned.

I also am not really into the new Yamaha receivers. I came across a new older RX-V4600. Price is $550. It seems to have what I need. I looked at the spec from Yamaha's website. I only have 1 HDMI bluray player.

I only have a 5 channel setup. No desire to add anything else.

I do have large speakers though & would like to have the extra power.

Do you guys think this receiver would be ok to use?

Will it support the bluray sound formats?

My Bluray already up converts dvd's


Thanks

If I were you, I would go newer than the 4600. I heard that the 2600 would not pass 1080p, or not all 2600's would pass 1080p. Unless you are sure the 4600 will pass 1080p, I would look at the successors - 1700/2700, 1800/3800, 1900/3900.

Don't need the 1080P up conversion. My TV is is only 1080I anyway.

I'm not big on tech & don't watch much TV. Just bought a blu-ray player & now my receiver is just too old to decode the audio.

I think I'll buy it. Local to me & only $200 more then the 565 I'm returning. Didn't want to spend more the $600.

I believe that the 4600 only supports MPCM audio. You'll need your BD player to decode Dolby TruHD and DTS-MA and you're good. It's a really nice receiver that was 2nd from the top of the line and was one level above the 2x00 ans 3x00 lines.


The x700 series were the 1st gen that supported 1080P but only supported MPCM. The x800 series supported both 1080P and the new lossless codecs.

I was not talking about 1080p upconversion. I was talking about 1080p over HDMI. The 4600 may not pass 1080p, ever. Anyway, sounds like you already bought it. And any competent Blu-ray player should allow 1080i.


1080p would have been nice to have in the future, though.
