  1. Info on VM300 4k MDC upgrade as well as the AM230 for Dolby Atmos upgrade: https://support.nadelectronics.com/hc/en-us/articles/360006178893-Which-MDC-options-are-available-for-my-product- https://nadelectronics.com/products/mdc-modules/ https://www.selby.com.au/brands/nad-electronics/nad-vm-300-4k-hdmi-video-module.html https://www.selby.com.au/brands/nad-electronics/nad-am-230-dolby-atmos-audio-module.html
  2. I checked this for you and I just instinctively switch to Pure Direct mode without thinking about it. Sorry for misleading you.
  3. So the UK StereoNet Web site has the UK & European pricing and release dates listed as follows: Pricing for the UK and Europe is as follows: AVR-X2700H (€729/£599) AVC-X3700H (€1,099/£999) (August) AVC-X4700H (€1,699/£1,399) (July) AVC-X6700H (€2,799/£2,299) (July) Taken from: https://www.stereonet.co.uk/news/denon-announces-2021-8k-ready-av-receiver-range US pricing and release dates: AV-X2700H ($849) (August) AVR-X3700H ($1,199) ( July) AVR-X4700H ($1,699) ( June) AVR-X6700H ($2,499) (June) Taken from: https://hdguru.com/2020-denon-x-series-receivers-bring-8k-60p-hdmi-2-1-support/
  4. The sound quality you ultimately get from any SACD (like CD etc.), will always be determined by the lower/lowest quality component/s in your system. A high quality SACD (remember not all SACD's are created equally), will be limited by lesser quality SACD Player, Amplifier and/or speakers. To realise the sonic benefits of SACD, you need to maintain the quality from source to speakers. It really is that simply. Here is one of the many SACD resource/review sites: http://www.sa-cd.net/ I love listening to my collection of SACD's
  5. I thought Yamaha Receivers remembered all the settings for last input used. I'm sure that our RX-A3080 does if I use Pur Direct with say my SACD Player etc. I'm not at home so can't check. It might not and I might just automatically switch to that mode without thinking about it Anyway if you access your Yamaha Receiver's setup via a web browser and its IP Address (use the settings button on the remote to find your Receivers IP address) with the following URL: http://(insert IP address here)/Setup/index.html eg: You will see something like this: Graphic taken from: https://www.avforums.com/threads/yamaha-receiver-manager-later-models.2203217/#lg=attachment1092402&slide=0 See if you can configure Pure Direct mode as the default setting. You might need to hunt around to check all the available settings and options.
  6. This would relate to these KEF speakers having lower speaker sensitivity. See: https://geoffthegreygeek.com/understanding-speaker-sensitivity/ KEF Q750 is 88db, KEF Q250C is 87db, while the KLIPSCH R41M is 90db. You could give them a try on your Yamaha RX-A780. If the output from the Receiver isn't sufficient, you could add a Power Amp. Your Yamaha RX-A780 has Front Left & Right Pre-outs, so you could certainly add a power Amp to take some of the load off the Receiver. https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-a780/specs.html I'm sure some others will jump in with some additional advice.
  7. Someone buy this already!!!!!!! Marantz SR7010 vs Marantz SR7013 Features Comparision: https://www.zkelectronics.com/compare/marantz-sr7010/uk/marantz-sr7013/uk/ Very little difference between them (IMHO).
  8. Hi rhcp_steve, Hope H.E. Pennypacker still has the NAD T-758v3 available. Anyway, good luck with your PM. 😀👍
  9. What you are describing sounds like a HDMI Handshaking issue either caused by the HDMI Cable. I know you said that connecting the HDMI cable directly to the TV works, but you have introduction another bit of equipment into the equation. Have you tried a different HDMI Cable as wolster suggested. I have suffered the same issue in the past. I had HDMI cables that worked fine when connect directly between a source such as a DVD Player and Display device. However when that same cable was used between the source and a Receiver, no signal was received. I went and purchased new HDMI cables and that solved the issue.
  10. That is fair enough and I understand completely. If you do consider it as a viable option, you can checkout H.E. Pennypacker's Trader Feedback here: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/profile/265425-he-pennypacker/?tab=node_feedback_Feedback
  11. OK, that is what I would do personally. Did you see the link I provided above where H.H. Pennypacker (who lives in Canberra), said he was looking to sell his NAD T-758v3 for $1200? If you did and you want something closer to home, I understand. Anyway, good luck with whatever you decide to do.
  12. I honestly think your only option is to take it to Yamaha Service Centre and get them to fix it. They will have access to Service Manuals and they will be able to quickly determine the cause of the issue. The Yamaha RX-V765 is over 10 years old now, so you could also consider purchasing a replacement instead of fixing it if the repair cost is too high given it's age. You could pickup a Refurb Yamaha RX-V683 for $400 from Excel HiFi on their eBay store with free shipping. See: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/YAMAHA-RX-V683-AV-RECEIVER-AUST-WARRANTY/193415800377?hash=item2d087ae639:g:2ukAAOSwcpVejqd6 The Yamaha RX-V683 is from the 83 Series (2017), whereas the RX-V685 is the current 85 Series (2018). Here is a features comparison of the RX-V685 & RX-V683: https://www.zkelectronics.com/compare/yamaha-rx-v685/australia/yamaha-rx-v683/australia/ https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-v683/index.html https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-v685/index.html If you don't need 7.1 etc, you also consider the Yamaha RX-V485 for $329.00 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/YAMAHA-RX-V485-AV-RECEIVER-AUST-WARRANTY/174245210212?hash=item2891d2e864:g:ZmwAAOSwD75ejqvM https://www.excelhifi.com.au/yamaha-rxv485-refurbished.html https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-v485/index.html Here is a features comparison of the RX-V485 & RX-V683 https://www.zkelectronics.com/compare/yamaha-rx-v485/australia/yamaha-rx-v683/australia/ Anyway something to consider.
  13. This product may suits you needs: https://www.amazon.com/SKSL-Digital-Converter-Support-Blue-Ray/dp/B019RF7ZVA/ Same device on eBay: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HDMI-to-HDMI-7-1ch-Audio-Extractor-Converter-Optical-Digital-to-Analog-LPCM-DAC-/252396847153 But read the product reviews. It has a 4K UHD logo, but that doesn't mean it is HDMI 2.0 & HDCP 2.2 compliant. If it isn't and I believe it isn't, you may need to use this injunction with a AVR Key 18Gbps. See: https://www.hdfury.com/product/avr-key/ Available for $329.00 from EzyHD. See: https://www.ezyhd.com.au/shop/hdfure-avrkey/ Or a BluStream SP12AB-V2 for approx. $139. See: https://www.avaustralia.com.au/blustream-sp12ab-v2-2-4-way-4k-hdmi-2-0-splitter-with-audio-breakout-edid-management/ https://www.radioparts.com.au/product/64510002/sp12abv2-1-in-2-out-hdmi-splitter-hdcp2.2-edid-audio-breakout#.XpKrdZpS9t8 This product may also suit you needs. See: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CLUX-11SA-HDMI-Repeater-with-Audio-De-embedding-up-to-LPCM-7-1CH/273830203424?hash=item3fc18d5020:g:sLQAAOSwcvtdRHTd But it doesn't say if it is HDMI 2.0 & HDCP 2.2 compliant. Not even on their web site: https://www.wagneronline.com.au/7-1ch-audio-decoder-only/hdmi-audio-decoder-dd-1080p-7-1ch/clux-11sa-6185/968240/pd/ However the information is on the manufactures web site here: https://www.cyp.com.au/clux-11sa-hdmi-repeater-with-audio-de-embedding-up http://en.cypress.com.tw/store/catalog/app/product/CLUX-11SA/HDMI-Repeater-with-Audio-De-embedding-up-to-LPCM-7.1CH Copy of manual here: http://en.cypress.com.tw/_file/store309/p1971/2020032551141603.2016010717857619.CLUX-11SA_DL-Manual_v2.10.pdf So you would need to use this injunction with a AVR Key 18Gbps, or a BluStream SP12AB-V2 Here is a owners thread for the CLUX-11SA product on AVForums: https://www.avforums.com/threads/clux-11sa-hdmi-to-analogue-truehd-and-dts-hd.795617/
  14. I saw this post in the thread below from H.H. Pennypacker that he had a NAD T-758v3 available for $1200 on Wed 8th April in this thread: You could buy this NAD T-758v3 for $1200 from H.H. Pennypacker (if still available). You guess you could use the 7.1 Inputs on your existing NAD T763 with the T758v3 to provide additional power (if required) .
