  1. Clef HiFi are discounting both the RX-V6A ($200 off to $1,099.00), and RX-V4A ($100 off to $799.00). RX-V6A: https://clefhifi.com.au/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21&products_id=4742 RX-V4A: https://clefhifi.com.au/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21&products_id=4741 VideoPro say they have the RX-V6A in stock at their Helensvale store. See: https://www.videopro.com.au/p-13798-yamaha-rxv6a-72ch-av-receiver.aspx Radio Parts say they have 22 RX-V6A in stock. Did have 34 yesterday morning. See: https://www.radioparts.com.au/product/01618580/rxv6-yamaha-home-theatre-receiver#.X3Pnr1lS_E4 Just received this email CHT Solutions confirming they also have stock (3 after filling all pre-orders) of the RX-V6A. https://www.customht.com.au/products/yamaha-rx-v6a-av-receiver They only have 1 left in stock now.
  2. The price of the Denon AVR-A110 110th Anniversary 13CH Receiver is $5,500 USD in the US. https://www.audioholics.com/av-receiver-reviews/denon-a110 https://usa.denon.com/en-us/shop/receivers/avra110 The $11,400 RRP in Australia is simply ludicrous IMHO.
  3. No HDMI 2.1 input/s at all! Seems a bit shortsighted for a new product.
  4. I think most of those images of the Aventage Series are generic, leaked and not specific to any one particular county’s power source. The exception is the RX-A2A.
  5. That is a bit disappointing for those expecting a new Pre-Pro from Denon.
  6. You will have to buy the RX-A4A to get dual HDMI Outputs. See: Even the new RX-A2A doesn't have dual HDMI outputs. If it was me, I'd just buy the RX-V6A and connect a 8K HDMI Switcher to the single HDMI output. As reported, the new RX-V6A will come with YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement. This will be the first time this has been offered in the lower end range. The RX-V685 does include YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) as does the RX-A680, but without no Multipoint measurement. The current RX-V385, RX-V485 & RX-V585 only have the very basic version of YPAO sound optimization without Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.). It looks like the new RX-V4A will only have the very basic version of YPAO. Previously, YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement only started with the RX-A880. The RX-A1080 then included YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement and 64-bit Precision EQ Calculation. The RX-A2080 adds YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement 3D, 64-bit Precision EQ Calculation and Angle Measurement. Finally the RX-A3080 has YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement 3D, 64-bit High Precision EQ Calculation and Angle Measurement. It would be good if Yamaha have tweaked and improved YPAO in all its forms. It will be intesting to see what form of YPAO the new RX-A2A, RX-A4A, RX-A6A & RX-8A come with. Here are some pictures of the rear of the new Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A2A, RX-A4A, RX-A6A & RX-A8A models Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A2A: Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A4A: Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A6A: Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A8A: Taken from this post in the AVSForum thread "Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A8, RX-A6, RX-A4, RX-A2 (NEW 2020 Models)" here: https://www.avsforum.com/threads/yamaha-aventage-rx-a8-rx-a6-rx-a4-rx-a2-new-2020-models.3115936/post-60079446 Here is a site that has better pictures of the new Yamaha AVENTAGE models from different angles, remotes etc: Yamaha RX-A2A: https://www.on-off-on.ru/catalog/vsye-dlya-kinoteatra/av-resivery/13047063/ Yamaha RX-A4A: https://www.on-off-on.ru/catalog/vsye-dlya-kinoteatra/av-resivery/13047064/ Yamaha RX-A6A: https://www.on-off-on.ru/catalog/vsye-dlya-kinoteatra/av-resivery/13047066/ Yamaha RX-A8A : https://www.on-off-on.ru/catalog/vsye-dlya-kinoteatra/av-resivery/13047067/ You can clearly see that the new AVENTAGE models have flat fronts like existing AVENTAGE models, where as the new V Series both have rounded fronts. Yamaha RX-V4A : https://www.on-off-on.ru/catalog/vsye-dlya-kinoteatra/av-resivery/Yamaha+RX-V4A/ Yamaha RX-V6A: https://www.on-off-on.ru/catalog/vsye-dlya-kinoteatra/av-resivery/Yamaha+RX-V6A/
  7. Who would know what they have planned. The RX-A8 11 channels at approx. $6000 AUD is comparable to the Denon AVR-X6700H 11 channels ($6,190). But Yamaha don't anything comparable to Denon's Flagship AVR-X8500H. I'm sure that they will release a new Pre-Pro and possibly another new power Amp with more channels. The real question is when. Anyway I think it is important to acknowledge that the new 2020 Yamaha AVRs provide multiple HDMI 2.1 input ports, and it does look like a complete redesign from the ground up. That could be a double edge sword I guess. Hopefully the new electronis design has be well engineered. I'm very interested to know if the Yamaha HDMI 2.1 Ports support only 40Gbps like on the new Denon & Marantz AVRs. Or have they done one better and provided the full 48Gbps that will support 12-bit Colour (that is supported by Dolby Vision). But there arn't any consumer TV's that support 12-Bit Colour so it is a moot point at this time. To me, Denon and Marantz seem to have both chosen a adhoc upgrade and only provided a single HDMI 2.1 input port. Their story that they didn't want to included more because it would have force up the price of the AVRs doesn't seem to add up when you consider that the new Yamaha AVRs are priced almost exactly the same as the previuos models without HDMI 2.1. Anyway you could argue that you only need one HDMI 2.1 Port at the present time (given the number of devices available), which I guess is fair enough. So those interested, here is a picture of the RX-A8A from the AVSForums thread of the new Yamaha models. https://www.avsforum.com/attachments/yamaha-rx-a8-front-61gftgdxpml-_ac_sl1500_-jpg.3032489/ https://www.avsforum.com/attachments/yamaha-rx-a8-front-corrected-61gftgdxpml-_ac_sl1500_-jpg.3032490/ Taken from this post: https://www.avsforum.com/threads/yamaha-aventage-rx-a8-rx-a6-rx-a4-rx-a2-new-2020-models.3115936/post-60067318 I must admit, the new look is growing on me. The RX-A8A, RX-A6A, RX-A4A & RX-A2A doesn't seem to have the front rounded edge that both the RX-V6A & RX-V4A have. RX-A8A, RX-A6A, RX-A4A & RX-A2A https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:cLUxtA7_LoAJ:https://www.amazon.com/Receivers-Amplifiers-Coming-Soon-Home-Theater/s%3Frh%3Dn%253A281053%252Cp_n_date%253A1249034011+&cd=15&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au RX-V6A & RX-V4A https://au.yamaha.com/en/files/overview_header_img_v6a_992a28f5d0c8a88243205639aa55d1e6.jpg https://au.yamaha.com/en/files/overview_header_img_v4a_1b98ae848011984d9ee277a3ef2580c4.jpg
  8. As reported in the thread on AVSforum, all four new Aventage models up on Amazon (with pricing). They will be available for purchase on 21st October in the US. RX-A2A (7.2 receiver) $799.95 USD https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-AVENTAGE-7-1-Channel-Receiver-MusicCast/dp/B08DWKCHH6/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1Z33WOIOH1QEH&dchild=1&keywords=yamaha+receiver&qid=1598528298&sprefix=yamaha+r,aps,201&sr=8-1 RX-A4A (7.2 receiver) $1,299.95 USD https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-AVENTAGE-7-1-Channel-Receiver-MusicCast/dp/B08DXF1CP6/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1Z33WOIOH1QEH&dchild=1&keywords=yamaha+receiver&qid=1598528241&sprefix=yamaha+r,aps,201&sr=8-3 RX-A6A (9.2 receiver) $2,199.95 USD https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-AVENTAGE-9-2-Channel-Receiver-MusicCast/dp/B08DXMTQ1N/ref=sr_1_4?crid=1Z33WOIOH1QEH&dchild=1&keywords=yamaha+receiver&qid=1598528241&sprefix=yamaha+r,aps,201&sr=8-4 RX-A8A (11.2 receiver) $2,999.95 USD https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-AVENTAGE-11-2-Channel-Receiver-MusicCast/dp/B08DXT8198/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1Z33WOIOH1QEH&dchild=1&keywords=yamaha+receiver&qid=1598528241&sprefix=yamaha+r,aps,201&sr=8-2 As posted earlier here is a compilation of the rear inputs and outputs of the RX-A8, RX-A6 and RX-A3080 to compare changes between models: https://www.avsforum.com/attachments/yamaha-rx-a8-j-rx-a6-and-rx-a3080-rear-pdf.3032039/ The RX-A8 pricing will be around $6K The RX-A6 pricing will be around $3.5K That makes the pricing make more sense if you checkout the back of the RX-A8, RX-A6 and RX-A3080. They have raised the bar on their top RX-A8A receiver to include 11 amplified channels, whereas the RX-A3080 is 9 amplified channels. RX-A8 (11 amplified channels) = completely new model RX-A6 (9 amplified channels) = successor of the RX-A3080 RX-A4 (7 amplified channels) = successor of the RX-A1080 RX-A2 (7 amplified channels) = successor of the RX-A880 RX-V6 (7 amplified channels) = successor of the RX-V685 RX-V4 (5 amplified channels) = successor of the RX-V485 So the RX-A6 is more in line with the Denon AVR-X4700H 9 channels ($3,490), and the RX-A8 more in line with the Denon AVR-X6700H 11 channels ($6,190). Edit: Amazon Links not working. You can still see them in this google web cache until it expires: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:cLUxtA7_LoAJ:https://www.amazon.com/Receivers-Amplifiers-Coming-Soon-Home-Theater/s%3Frh%3Dn%253A281053%252Cp_n_date%253A1249034011+&cd=15&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au I thought they might get removed because they weren't even on the US Yamaha site. https://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/index.html The pictures displayed on Amazon were actually of each respective model as I checked that. So Yamaha must have provided those images to Amazon. I quess someone at Amazon jumped the gun.
  9. The new RX-V4A & RX-V6A are on the Australian Yamaha site now: https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/index.html RX-V4A $899 https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-v4a/index.html RX-V6A $1,299 https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-v6a/index.html Same pricing as the RX-V685 ($1299), but $50 more than the RX-V485 ($849) RX-V6A successor of the RX-V685 RX-V4A successor of the RX-V485
  10. Official specs for RX-V4A and 6A listed on US Yamaha site. If I'm reading this correctly, it looks all HDMI ports support HDR10+, 8K/60Hz, 4K/120Hz, ALLM, VRR, QMS & QFT (via a future firmware update). https://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-v6a/index.html https://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-v4a/index.html That being the case, they have the drop on both Denon & Marantz at this point in time. But note that these features are only available via a future firmware update. Copies of User Manuals: https://usa.yamaha.com/files/download/other_assets/7/1335527/web_AV19-0004_RX-V4A_ug_UCRABGLFPH_En_A0.pdf https://usa.yamaha.com/files/download/other_assets/3/1335553/web_AV19-0030_RX-V6A_ug_UCRABGLFPH_En_A0.pdf Edit: Looks like not all HDMI Ports support HDR10+, 8K/60Hz, 4K/120Hz, ALLM, VRR, QMS & QFT (via a future firmware update). Only 3 on the RX-V6A but all 4 inputs on the RX-V4A according to Press Release: Yamaha Unveils Next-Gen AV Receivers, Featuring Multiple 8K Inputs, New Look and Immersive Technology https://www.prweb.com/releases/yamaha_unveils_next_gen_av_receivers_featuring_multiple_8k_inputs_new_look_and_immersive_technology/prweb17345535.html Another article with more info: Yamaha's new 8K AV receivers make HDMI 2.1 home cinema affordable https://www.whathifi.com/au/news/yamahas-new-8k-av-receivers-make-hdmi-21-home-cinema-affordable Looks like some like the new look! That isn't too long to wait considering it has way more HDMI 2.1 Ports that the other offerings. That's not too bad really! But I guess people will have to wait until December for all the features.

  11. Might be an idea to post the Serial number of your unit so people can verify upgradability of the MDC cards. It looks like Serial number starts with T7Z from the photo you posted. https://support.nadelectronics.com/hc/en-us/articles/360006178893-Which-MDC-options-are-available-for-my-product-

  14. Did have a read of this features comparison between the RX-A880 and RX-A1080? https://www.zkelectronics.com/compare/yamaha-rx-a880/australia/yamaha-rx-a1080/australia/ RX-A880 comes with Burr-Brown DAC x 4 for main zone, while the RX-A1080 has ESS SABRE Premier DAC ES9007S Have a read of this features comparison between the RX-A1080 and RX-A2080: https://www.zkelectronics.com/compare/yamaha-rx-a1080/australia/yamaha-rx-a2080/australia/ More channels, power and extra DAC. But there are other differences as well. RX-A880 has YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement. RX-A1080 has YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement and 64-bit Precision EQ Calculation. RX-A2080 has YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement 3D, 64-bit Precision EQ Calculation and Angle Measurement. RX-A3080 has YPAO Reflected Sound Control (R.S.C.) with Multipoint measurement 3D, 64-bit High Precision EQ Calculation and Angle Measurement. I guess it depends what how much money and features are important to you as to what your buy. You can get the RX-A2080 cheaper ($1,999.00), as a Refurb on the Excel HiFi Web Site. Or a RX-A880 for $999.00. See: https://www.excelhifi.com.au/audio-visual-receivers/ But the current pricing of the Refurb units isn't the best price I've seen from Excel HiFi. Still cheaper than new I guess. But you do only get 2 years warranty, not 4 years. Excel HiFi have Refurb RX-V1085 model on their eBay store now for $1,599.00. See: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/YAMAHA-RX-V1085-AV-Receiver-Aus-Warranty/174351818693 But it's not listed on the Web site here: https://www.excelhifi.com.au/audio-visual-receivers/ They also have the RX-V2085 for $1799.00. See: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/YAMAHA-RX-V2085-AV-Receiver-Aus-Warranty-/124263545896 What is Refurbished? https://www.excelhifi.com.au/what-is-refurbished-en.html Warranty: https://www.excelhifi.com.au/warranty.html
