Before spending anymore money, check the speaker level trim's in the receiver. If they happen to be set at a minus value, especially from the channel to which reference is set from (left front usuall

just grab a universal remote probably easiest solution

2 hdmi outs is easy, you just add an inexpensive device such as this @ $38.50

Good one, just better if it was in an all in one (yea i'm being a fussy pot, just trying to minimise the snake pit).

But, better if external anyway, seen so many < $1k receivers with faulty hdmi boards due to heat issues etc etc

Cambridge and Richter Wizard mk1 = big win!!! Match made in heaven. They are damn good speakers, I still love mine to death. The Onkyo must have had a problem I would say. They aren't anywhere near 100w/ch but it still should have driven the Wizards very hard. Onkyo's are a bit like Denon's, phantom watts. You compare something like a 100w/ch NAD to a 100w/ch Denon and it's laughable.

Sure is - plus I've just added a Rotel power amp - now I'm very happy with the sound. Although that damaged Wizard tweeter is showing itself a bit more now.

Has Blakey72 (or anyone else) have any suggestions on what other tweeters I could possibly replace them with.

THanks

i find this amusingly annoying.

The flagship of the Gaymaha Aventage RX-A3010 (which has won numerous awards, and I don't doubt its a great receiver), but how on earth does this unit achieve 150W per channel (and there are 9 channels btw) from a 480W power consumption rating?

Understand sometimes its not about how much power, its about quality not quantity blah blah blah, but you have to be really dumb to think 150W per channel in a 9 channel setup is possible from a 480W power rating.

The Yamaha Australia's website doesnt have an image stating the power consumption, but review websites globally have posted up images, here's one, and another

What's even worse, this is stated:

1,350W = 150W x 9 (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.06% THD, 2ch driven)

Its the Flagship of Yamaha.

I'm sure it does wonders.

But of all the times I have ever come across a Yamaha product, they are by far the worst of the big 4 AVR companies.

ALWAYS

This has always been enough for one potential customer to never, ever, ever, purchase Yamaha audio receiver products.

Ever.

Never in the past, never in the present, never in the future.

Apologies for the rant, but I really dislike heavily overstated and under deliverable products.

wilco add pioneer, sony, denon and onkyo to that list. the japanese avr makers are all pretty rubbish in that department. who do they think theyre fooling ! its why I find power consumption the real indicator of what they can consume at most rather than their BS power claims !

totally agree big al, Gosh don't even mention Sony!

With Denon and Onkyo, at least they somewhat try (note with sarcasm) to deliver on their claims by providing power consumption ratings higher than 800w for their somewhat more expensive products.

With Yamaha, u pay more for addons but the engine is still the same 490w power rating.

That's like buying a corolla with dsg gearbox and cow seating but has a very normal 1.8L pre 2000 vvti engine.

Yamaha r the worst, ever, ever, ever! ! ! ! !

They make gr8 products, but they should start asking real consumers what they want, rather than making pretty black boxes with 2 knobs!

Finally got onto Richter & they put me onto Speakerbits in Port Melb, so sent it off to them for repair.

I have only just stumbled onto this thread. I would like to ask SJB, if he is still around, if he had problems with the remote. Apparently Onkyo AV remotes of that time were notorious for just conking out. I want to do a bit of adjustment with mine, and the bugger will not work.

Re the AV itself, I note a lot of negative comment surfaced in this thread.

FWIW, I love the Onkyo AV sound, and have never found apparent volume an issue.

Does anyone have any clues about rebooting the remote.

ZM.

Hi I to have just seen this thread. I was wondering if the  Integra Avrs tell porky's about their power ratings as well?

 

yes, as do yamaha, pioneer, marantz, denon, sony and the like.

 

you'll find the likes of rotel, nad, harman kardon, arcam, cambridge pretty honest and conservative in their ratings.

 

the big give away is the max consumption stated in specs and sometimes stamped on back of the amps...as obviously cant output more power from an amp than it consumes...

 

some makers will claim one or two channels driven rather than all channels driven. some will claim power claim with cr@p distortion or just at 1khz ! 

 

I would disregard power claims personally keeping in mind its not the quantity but the quality thats the important thing. otherwise we would all buy PA amps and be happy :D

      Hi everyone
      This is my first post😃 I have read a lot of other posts and reviews, reading opinions on various avr choices. It has gotten to a point where I would like to get an opinion on my setup🙏 
      My current set up is 7.2 
      I am currently using pre/pro Onkyo pr sc 5009 with Onky 5501a 9ch amp. Speakers are Jamo D450 (biamped) and D4centre. Rears and surrounds are Klipsch rp 250s. Subwoofers 2x svs sb2000pro.
      I am only watching movies/shows. Watching through Mitsubishi HC9000D projector - which is a 1080p 3D projector - still looks good
      Generally I am very happy with the setup, occasionally I feel I would like more from my centre speaker.
      I am going through my 8 year itch on the Onkyo and I was hoping someone might help scratch it.
      So the question is, is it worth updating the processor and if so, what would be the best options.  I have looked at the Anthem avm70, Marantz av7706/8805 and Denon av8500.
      I look forward to some advice and opinions
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hi there,
      Does anyone have any feedback or has purchased the Richter Merlin 6 Bookshelves
      Looking for a bookshelf to match with the new Sonos Amp, preferably without a Sub for approx $1,000
      Medium sized living space and used for a mix of TV, Turntable and Streaming services.
      I'm tossing up between these and the Wharfedal Evo 4.1
      Thanks!
