    Default My "A" List for a new AVR

    werthliving.com

    Currently, I have a Yamaha HTR-5063 which gets the job done OK, but its missing some new features that I'd love to have. So I figured I'd throw a few of those features up against the wall and see what sticks, and include a few candidates for replacing the Yamaha. And of course, we all have that nagging question... Is it the right time to invest in a new AVR? LOL I'll also note that 90% of the use of the system will be TV-Related (Movies, Sports, News, Series). LOL... 90% of my music listening is via iPhone and earbuds at the GYM!

    AirPlay - This is a must have item for our next receiver because my wife and I both have iPhones & iPads. It would be nice to be able to stream some music easily through the speaker system.

    WiFi - I'm on the fence about whether I really _need_ WiFi, maybe somebody can tell me what benefits that a WiFi-enabled receiver has over one that has AirPlay and network capability built in.

    Network Ready - This I think would be more important to me since even for streaming on a gigabit network... it'd be faster than WiFi, might be good for firmware updates too?

    HDMI 2-Zone - I think this could be kind of cool to have it you can actually use different sources of A/V material on 2 different HDMI out ports. Right now I have a wall-mounted 22" Samsung in my kitchen that receives my HDMI DirecTV feed from a HDMI powered splitter so I don't have to have another DTV box in the kitchen. I have DTV remotes programmed so that I can change channels in either room. A 2-Zone HDMI setup might eliminate the splitter, allow for more than one source. Just thinking out loud.

    HDMI Ports - My current AVR has Four HDMI Inputs and One HDMI out. All four are filled (DirecTV, AppleTV, Chromecast, BDPlayer), so if I upgraded I'd definitely want say 6 Inputs, 2 Outputs because I'd like to be ready for more HDMI sources.

    HDMI v.2.0 - This one is a dilemma. Is it _really_ important? Is it like USB 2.0 vs USB 3.0? I confess that I don't know enough about HDMI v.2.0 yet to understand its worth to _my_ current setup.

    Bi-Amp Capable - This is a nice feature to have (if your speakers allow it), whether your using the output to boost a set of 4-Ohm speakers or just add more dimension to your HT experience.

    Room Setup - My current AVR should work fine in a 7.1 setup, I dismantled my Bose stuff, will be going with basic Polk stuff for Fronts & Center for now. The Towers are Polk Audio Monitor 60B IIR's and the Center Channel is a Polk Audio CS1B II R. Might tie in Surround speakers and a powered sub but not a monster.

    Speaker Setup - My Yamaha has the YPAO remote microphone feature and that seems to work pretty well, or well enough for me, so any new AVR would have to have a similar means of setting up the speakers and optimized listening location.

    On-Screen Menu - The HTR-5063 has on-screen menus for setup, but it cancels out the video and the menu itself isn't terribly attractive to boot. Not a big deal, but some of the newer units have much nicer GUIs.

    AVR Candidates - Yamaha, Denon, and Marrantz would be the three top candidates... and I might consider a Sony. I would definitely consider a refurbished unit, if said unit had the features I like, and had a decent history as far as reliability. I've had two Yamaha AVRs in the past 15 years, and both are still working 100%, neither has _ever_ had a problem. I also have a Yamaha YST-MS35D speaker system with a powered sub hooked up to my iMac... probably 10 years old if not more... can't kill it.

    Price Point - Typically when somebody says $500, there will always be a few people who insist on telling you to save up and spend a few hundred more whether its speakers, AVRs or whatever. Thats _my_ ballpark... though if an amazing AVR was available for $699.99 I might take a long look at it.

    4K/3D Ready - I don't have a 4K TV, don't really anticipate getting one very soon, and don't know what 4K media sources will be in the next 5 years. Nice to have feature, but I'm quite happy with my 65" DLP Mitsubishi WD-65737. This set is 3D ready, but I dislike 3D glasses, so I never bought into the whole 3D pitch.

    I'll list a few models in my next post, going to do some comparison research. But if anyone wants to tell me about feature value, or suggest some specific model they have experience with... I'm all ears (no pun intended).

    This is actually pretty useless with consumer speakers. Biamping can make sense when the amps are fed from an electronic crossover and the drivers connect directly to the amp rather than through a passive crossover. (The closest equivalent in a modern home system is the connection to a powered subwoofer, where an electronic crossover feeds the sub's built-in amp.) With a conventional speaker that has bi-wire/biamp connections, you might get a dB more headroom, if you're lucky, but that's it.

    Like I said... I'm not crazy in a rush, $500 was my outside limit but I might go a little higher, but not that high Rizzo! Or I can wait 6-12 months and it'll drop to $499.99! The Denon AVR-3313CI is also nice. BTW, was in Costco earlier today, first time I've seen the V775 there, it's $489.99 not bad for brand new. So there's no Yamaha V777BT owners here? No Sony 1040/1050 people? No Marrantz either?

    That truck in my avatar is where the REAL money goes LOL.

    Yeah... Sweet, you like nice stuff Mr. Rizzo.�� Me too, but usually Chip Foose wheels or a new blower for my truck. I have to do a lot of research, but I'd like to get some first hand opinions of the 3-4 major brands/models I might actually buy. Sometimes the best specs in the world don't tell you about overheating, lousy HDMI connections, quirky GUIs, confusing remotes, and more. Got to check all the forums and see who actually is using these particular models.

    I like my Denon x4000 no 4k but who cares. Audyssey xt32 works well. Less heat than my 3808ci. I watch mainly movies and I know GOS plays a lot of music. No complaints from me but i barely scratched the surface of all the features. Refurbished ones are reasonably priced. As u said lots of research to do.

    Yeah, 99% of my Denon X4000 is for music...and then it's mostly hi-rez music. But...I'm really loving the Airplay feature...outstanding for those who rather enjoy having all your music available at your fingertips...

    I had a couple of Marantz receivers back in the day... really nice back then. The vintage Quadraradial stuff. Probably have a soft spot for them. Never owned a Denon product. I have a line on a Velodyne sub, and a JBL. The Velodyne is the Equa Max 8" side firing with remote control, 180W RMS/360W peak. The JBL is a Northridge EvSeries E150P also 180w, no remote control. Both mint, Velodyne $50 more. Opinions? I'm just looking for a touch of sub to round HT things off, old farts don't play rap music.

    What's your sub budget? Internet Direct companiees are the best value. Hsu and SVS are two. PSA also.

    Agreed

    *quality subs and both HSU & SVS top notch, you get what you pay for, If you don't feel the need for bass that is deep clean and rich (theater type sound) Their are other Subs for less, if that fits your needs. Just cause you have a sub capable of DEEP Bass is not only for Rap but, it is also important to have the ability to play that EXPLOSION you experience in a theater or other soundtrack effects on Bluray disc

    Just based on what I could find in the way of specs, probably the JBL. The power of the amp in the sub doesn't really tell you anything useful.

    Yeah... I had one of those with the Quad decoder... don't remember it being _that_ effective. I had the wood box too. I also had the one with the "oscilloscope" tube.

    Went with the Velodyne... mainly because of the remote control features and the price was only $25 more than the JBL.

    Kind of surprised no one jumped in on this part yet.

    What you want to look for is not just HDMI 2.0 or "4k ready. You need HDMI 2.0 ports with HDCP 2.2. This last part is the latest copy protection that is only now being added to 2015 models of most AVRs. HDCP 2.2 will be required for pretty much any external 4k source (i.e. not from a streaming app built into the TV), so the next generation UltraHD Blu-ray standard requires it, the Sony 4k media player requires it, etc.

    You'll want to consider this because a good AVR will outlast a TV, so you may only have a 1080p TV now, but UltraHD (4k) TVs are fast becoming the norm for any decent mid-range or better TV.

    So which... (if any) AVR currently retailing/refurbished at say $600.00 has all those HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 features? (Just kidding) But is HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 compliance one of those "wait and pay thru the nose" deals where HDMI 2.X is announced 12 months from now? I know the Marantz Rizzo suggested is HDMI 1.4a compliant, but just like the Denon AVR-X5200W, which is HDMI 2.0 equipped, neither is HDCP 2.2 capable according to their specs. That Denon is a $1999.99 AVR. So lets say you buy a HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 TV this year, if your source material is 4K BluRay DVDs, you'll need a 4K BD Player that is fully HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 ready. HDMI 1.4a is not firmware upgradeable to HDMI 2.0 AFAIK.

    Most everything I've read acknowledges that every copy protection scheme is breakable and its only being done as a band-aid to make the stockholders smile. Maybe if I were 60 years old or younger I'd be concerned, but I might croak LOL before I feel compelled to buy a 4K TV and compatible Blu-Ray Player, Chromecast, and AppleTV that will allow streaming/viewing of 4K media protected by HDCP 2.2.

    I think while AVRs can continue working for a long time, they are just as susceptible to being somewhat "disposable" just like a TV. Case in point, I have a decent Yamaha AVR thats only 4-5 years old, but I'm actually thinking about features I wish it had... being Airplay and Network capable, and I might just replace it.

I know the Marantz Rizzo suggested is HDMI 1.4a compliant, but just like the Denon AVR-X5200W, which is HDMI 2.0 equipped, neither is HDCP 2.2 capable according to their specs. That Denon is a $1999.99 AVR. So lets say you buy a HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 TV this year, if your source material is 4K BluRay DVDs, you'll need a 4K BD Player that is fully HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 ready. HDMI 1.4a is not firmware upgradeable to HDMI 2.0 AFAIK.

    Most everything I've read acknowledges that every copy protection scheme is breakable and its only being done as a band-aid to make the stockholders smile. Maybe if I were 60 years old or younger I'd be concerned, but I might croak LOL before I feel compelled to buy a 4K TV and compatible Blu-Ray Player, Chromecast, and AppleTV that will allow streaming/viewing of 4K media protected by HDCP 2.2.

    I think while AVRs can continue working for a long time, they are just as susceptible to being somewhat "disposable" just like a TV. Case in point, I have a decent Yamaha AVR thats only 4-5 years old, but I'm actually thinking about features I wish it had... being Airplay and Network capable, and I might just replace it.

    So the short version is that if you hang on another few months $600 price point AVRs will have HDCP 2.2 compliant ports. The 2015 models of the major receiver manufacturers are expected have HDCP 2.2 support, and they start to be released in spring/summer.

    It's up to you weigh the pros and cons, if worrying about HDCP 2.2 is important to you. However, new 2015 models are so close to being released you might want to wait, not just for HDCP 2.2, but to see what trickle-down features have made it into more afforable models, etc.
