Mukhang wala pa ata, nagtatanong din ako ng 685 pero wala idea mga stores kung kelan dating

^83 series is 2017 model... Avesco said they'd arrive/launch by Q4 (Ber months)

i'm also waiting for Aventage's ^70 series to arrive...

Mga sirs, any news kung meron naba dito yung RX-V385? planning to replace my old onkyo sana.

pinaka-late dumating ang Yammy dito sa PH.  usually Ber months na...  konting tyaga sa paghihintay, sir =))  ask Avesco.  you may check with them from time to time.

while waiting, check out Onkyo, Denon, Pioneer then Marantz 2018 models na mauuna dumarating =))

i was waiting for the Aventage 880 pero di rin sure kelan dating.Aventage 870 yata needs pa ng FW upgrade para ma activate ang HDR at Dolby Vision? i am strongly leaning towards Aventage 1070 instead.

^ ok naman ang A1070.. just check if that HDR/DV are out of the box or you'll install via FW update.  it should be available by now for 2017 models.

if you're coming from Onkyo (as your PDVD handle implies  ;)), I think it may be comparable with RZ820.  best to audition, per our usual norm -- before deciding which one to buy

advance congratz with your new toy, sir...

Any users of RX-V681? Have you had any issues with the unit? Planning on getting one instead of the 483 or 583.

I just got an aventage A670 in the US together with a Samsung 4K UHD player.  My cables are Wireworld Chroma 7 from Receiver to TV and Audioquest Pearl from Source to Receiver. Everything was fine until last night when signal was only 480p. So I bypassed the receiver and source was direct to TV, everything was ok at 4k.  So I reset the A670 and it was fixed.  I wanted to watch this morning but signal was 480p again.

I tried troubleshooting but to no avail. I would appreciate any help.  Thanks.

^ might be your Wireworld Chroma 7 from Receiver to TV.  get another AudioQuest Pearl then from avr to tv.

check your Sammy tv settings as well.  it may have something to do with its HDMI setting -- forgot if its about UHD setting being in auto or off.

I have a Yamaha RX-V379 that I bought about 3 years ago. The front display only shows "decoder off". No audio but video is fine. Connected my Himedia player via HDMI cable. I changed my cables to a new one but that didnt fix it. I read from other forums about the same problem but no definite fix. Anyone experienced this?

Hello, I have a aventage a3060 with max output of 1150 watts. Can anyone suggest a good step down transformer. Mine is 110v. Thanks.

After visiting my parents and siblings last month,
my old system still works there, its powered by a Yamaha RXV657 (bought it from Barrister a few years ago)
I figured its time for an upgrade, wala pa pala itong HDMI whatsoever,
I'll be sending my RX-A1030 and contemplating on either the RX-A3080 or the lower RX-A3070,..
 ^-^

Oh I use a ZEBRA AVR there in the Philippines,...

Hi! I'm looking at the Yamaha RX-V485 as a replacement for my ancient HK AVR135. Are there any issues on this generation of Yamaha receivers that I need to be aware of? Thanks!

When you invest in expensive equipment, its always good to protect it by having an auto voltage regulator and line conditioner. Your gear will be safe and for your peace of mind.

Hi, I used to have an HT setup (Yamaha+Wharfedale+Mirage sub) in 2007 but ditched it in favor of 2 channel system and therefore lost touch re HT scene.

Last week my daughter asked me if I can setup one in my listening space (4m x 7m),  Yesterday walked away 5 min later from our local store with a Yammy RX V685 in tow, I am not crazy on HT but in a way I wanted to optimally set this up with least additional cost.

Which surround format do you guys mostly or prefer or recommends using on a Yammy receiver? Is it possible to run my speakers in conjunction with a soundbar, or is it a good idea to use a soundbar? Any other recommendation from the group? Oh I also have an extra 2ch amp to power the front speakers. I will not be able to set things up right away due to my schedule but would like to know in advance so I will have an idea which path I will take.

Dolby Atmos
Dolby TrueHD
Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby Surround
DTS:X
DTS-HD Master Audio

These are the speakers I will  be using:
F - paradigm studio 40v3
C- Will look fora decent used Paradigm CC
R - Paradigm Titans or PSB (on my garage duty)
Sub - Will look for a used REL, Velodyne or SVS

Thanks in advance.

^ all the above surround audio formats mentioned are widely available via bluray discs and downloaded .MKV's.

Dolby Digital Plus 5.1ch and Atmos (DD+ joint encode) via Netflix is also available.  In Youtube, I think this is coming soon, as well.

Dolby Surround (same as DTS-Neural:X) is an upmixer software available on your Yammy 685.  this will be utilized if you play any legacy 2ch or 5.1ch audio source. but you are also required to install heights speakers.  so your 685 should be connected to a 7 speakers (with 5.1.2 configuration).

as for preference, just use the audio sound decoder of the AVR (in your case, Yammy 685) depending on your movie's audio source.  this is the most recommended or as per the film creator's intention.  it automatically defaults, anyway -- but you could still override and use a different sound post-processing of your 685. try it and see which one you'd like best.

I myself cannot justify if Atmos is better than DTS:X (or vice versa) as they're encoded in different movies.  I won't be able to compare, really.  so it is depending on each scenes where they placed an audio metadata for heights sound immersion.  and I both find Atmos/DTS:X very good and it surely have bested the previous 5.1/7.1ch audio bed experience we once enjoyed =))

Dolby Digital Surround and DTS Neural:X upmixers are different, though.  they are especially created to maximize your HT set-up with heights speakers when watching legacy 5.1ch (or even 2ch) movies.  It gives a you better sound immersion by providing a "light" touch of sound unto your heights speakers wherein they aren't initially there when the movie soundtrack is created.  Between these 2, I prefer more to use the DTS Neural:X.  I find it more immersive and project better center-stage than Dolby Surround.  It's up to you to observe and make your own preference.

another 2 audio formats are existing (but aren't available on your 685).  Auro 3D by Barco & IMAX Enhanced by IMAX & DTS, Inc.  Auro3D requires a different speaker layout.  It is here prior to Dolby Atmos but didn't get the popularity compared to Atmos & DTS:X.

while IMAX Enhanced can be enjoyed with the same 5.1.2 speaker configuration.  IMAX Enhanced also introduces a better visual experience -- this is other than Dolby Vision.

HTH!

Thanks mhacman, this helped lot. From what I gather Atmos speaker modules is a compromise if ceiling mount is not an option, since I already have most of what I need I can proceed building a ceiling mount setup; also cheaper in my case than getting new atmos speaker modules.
Thanks again for the explanation of these different surround formats.

Hi @mhacman, coming back to this old post for some updates.
I finally finished my setup, but got more than what I planned for. I realized that not all BD has Atmos but standard in 4K UHD format so  I ended up buying a 4K UHD player  >:D ....and a new TV  >:D . Below is how I built my system.

F - paradigm studio 40v3, powered by a vintage Pioneer SA -8800ii from the front pre-outs and the rest by the Yammy on top
C- Paradigm CC 350
R - TAD TSM 300
Sub - Polk SW 10
Presence Speakers - Leviton (JBL powered) satellite speakers - I highly recommend these speakers,
Mods please delete the link if it is not allowed, I do not have any affiliation but just wanted to share a decently price, good quality, sound acquisition.

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0018N57OM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have not read the 186 pages manual but I like the Movie Spectacle/ Standard/adventure settingsfor  BD movies. As for CD playing the 7.1 setting works for me. I used YPAO in the initial setup and raised the attenuation of the surround rears and presence speakers by around 2db. The system sounds great I am very happy with the Yamaha, not overly shrill, I could use more slam on the lower end but it is more than adequate actually.

If you have some more tips, let me know.  I do not want to touch anymore settings as I may end up resetting the amp and therefore will have to start from scratch again :D
Here is what I am now; I still need to de-clutter wires and everything plus cleaning those stands from drywall dust. Cheers!

^ wow!  happy to know your set-up is all good!  you also have a very nice place for your HT!

once I had a Yamaha AVR.  I likewise used Spectacle (one of Yammy's trademark audio post processing) to add on top with either Dolby or DTS surround sound.  When watching concerts, I recall I may also be using Orchestra as post processing sound format... with the new models baka mas marami pang post-processing options dyan =)

congratz!  hoping you post for more updates with your hobby, sir...  ^-^

Mga expert tanung ko lang po kung repairable pa po ba pag defective yung sub-out ng receiver or kailangan ng palitan yung receiver?

Nabili ko po nung 2017 yung Yamaha A3060 pero ngayon ko lang na confirm na defective nga yung akin. Kaya pala sobrang mahina yung subwoofer pag TEST TONE. Kailangan mo idikit tenga mo sa sub para madinig. Gumagana ang sub pero sobrang kulang. Nagpalit ako ng sub para matest pero same lang mahina din. Yung previous entry level yamaha ko wala naman ganitong issue. Marami kasi ako nababasa sa yamaha na may ganito din kaya akala ko normal lang sa yamaha. Same po kami ng problem ng thread starter nito sa 3-page thread sa Avsforum. Kinopy ko lang yung ilang posts:

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/113-subwoofers-bass-transducers/2953064-help-no-real-bass-pb-4000-yamaha-rx-a3070.html
From threadstarter:
"Good News!!! I took the Yamaha receiver to the store and asked to replace it with Denon. They asked for $200 more for receiver which I think is a lower model than the Yamaha. So, I said, let's try out the Yamaha I was returning. He plugged in the subs to the sub out and we couldn't hear anything during Test Tone, however during YPAO Auto Calibration it did make sound. Then, we tried a brand new Yamaha receiver and plugged in the subs and the subs were booming. I just brought home a different Yamaha, same model A3070, and just got the setting done with some basic by tuning YPAO Auto first, then Manual Setup to change them to Small/80Hz and the subs are rambling."

From Ed Mullen of SVS:
We work with literally thousands of customers a year on set-up and troubleshooting. It may surprise some readers to know that a defective sub-out is actually fairly common - we see it probably 3X a week.

There was absolutely something wrong with that AVR - it was barely sending any signal to the subs no matter what we tried with respect to set-up and digital bass management. The smart phone test we had the customer run is a 'sanity check' to make sure the subs were working properly and they immediately shook the room at not even close to full gain.

The customer replaced the defective AVR unit with the same exact model Yamaha and it's working perfectly fine and he's got tons of output from the subwoofers.
