I thought it would connect 9 speakers, because the picture of the back shows slots for 9 speakers. I have 5 in family room, 2 in the kitchen and 2 in the dinning room. So I bought the unit.
But once I have connected the speakers, I found it doesn’t support 9 speakers. The manual said: “ When Zone2 output is enabled, the surround back speakers in the Main zone do not output sound.” You can find the manual on Yamaha website. It’s in the “ TSR-700 / PREPARATIONS / How to place speakers (speaker systems) / Speaker systems using the unit’s internal amplifier (advanced setup)” section.
That means: this unit *itself* can only drive 7 speakers.
That’s how I ended up with: 1) sound sources to this unit 2) this unit drives 5 speakers in the family room 3) from this unit, use zone 2 line out to my older receiver (Yamaha RX-V371). That guy drives 2 speakers in the kitchen 4) from the older receiver, line out to the third mini receiver which driver the 2 speakers in the dinning room.
This setup works well. No noticeable lagging between family room and the kitchen. They are in the same space so if there is any lagging, it will be very noticeable (and annoying). There is very minimal lag to the dinning room, but the dinning room itself is away from family room/kitchen space so it doesn’t bother me.
Sound is great, Video is great except the following: Every day I have to unplug the unit in order for the sound to come up. this is not acceptable since I did not have this problem with VX-485 unit. I did extensive search on the web and found out that most of the users have this problem. I updated the firmware to the latest and the problem still exist. The work around is to buy a power strip with a switch and every morning I press the switch off and on and then the sound will come up.
I would not recommend this unit at all unless if you don't mind to do off/on power switch
The unit arrived in the product box packed within a larger box that allowed the product box to easily move around. The protective packing within the product box was broken and I feared the unit may be damaged. Fortunately it was not and worked well after I connected it up. I definitely had to go online and review the User Manual to be sure I had everything hooked up correctly. The manual was essential to learn how to use the remote control. I did not do any sound measurements. I simply set it up with the automatic setup system that comes with it. It sounds fine to me in a 5.1 setup. There was no problem with this item that was sold as refurbished.
It was definitely like new. Packaged like a brand new unit. Only way to tell it wasn't is there is an official Yamaha seal on back saying it was refurbished. Everything seems to function and work properly. I wanted eARC so I could pass through uncompressed signal and it works flawlessly. I previously had a newer Yamaha amp so I knew it would meet my expectations in sound 🙂 I do wish they would update remote. It feels cheap and out the 80's lol. But the unit is solid and feels modern
I replaced a Marantz SR-7001. The sound quality is a night and day difference. Throughout the years I've gone through many speaker set-ups because I was not happy with the sound, but turns out it was the receiver the entire time.
You have full control through the MusicCast app through your home network/WiFi. The standard remote is useful to power on/off and raise the volume, otherwise, you’re better off using the app.
I recently downloaded the app on my wife’s iPad so she has control of the receiver which is amazing because I no longer get requests to adjust the volume.
Lo compré reacondicionado porque estaba a muy buen precio y sobre todo que me lo trajo un familiar a México, termine ahorrándole unos 450 dlls, sin embargo tiene una pequeña falla y es que frecuentemente se imagen se va y no así el audio, no sé si es algo que se pueda corregir con alguna actualización o simplemente sea la falla por la cual lo devolvieron en garantía. En fin creo aún así valió la pena, espero no salga algo más xq desde México no puedo hacer válida la garantía como producto reacondicionado. No es el primer AV yahama, es mi tercero y siempre muy buenos, compré un Onkyo previo a este pero hay una gran diferencia a favor del yahama
i had RX-V775 for the last 6 years and it was good for every purpose.. it had 4k , 5hdmi in, 2 hdmi out etc etc.. why i moved to this? it has 4k hdr10 support (it says its a future update via firmware update , i made the latest update, it have it now). sound quality is very good,extra bass, ypao auto speaker calibration is perfect.. it automatically detects your speaker size, distance, cable quality, resistance etc.. and calculates the parameters automatically..
interestingly, it changes normal satellite film's audio output.. when you watch commercial ads, music comes from different speakers, voice comes from another speaker set, and bass sounds on woofer.. normally you expect only stereo but its different.. i was impressed..
the plastic materials (ex: volume knob) seems very cheap if compared to rx-v775.. when you roll it, if feels that you may break it if you press a little bit more..
the display is quite enough for information.. you can get all information about whats going on..
connection, pairing was very easy.. just press connect button on avr about 5 seconds.. then open musiccast app.. they get paired immediately.. and it asks the wifi password..(if you are using wifi instead of ethernet cable) bam.. thats it.. device is connected to internet..
the musiccast application is a little bit complex and confusing (it seems easy to use, but not).. on rx-v775 i was using "av controller" app, it was very easy to control and see what are the settings.. again you can use av controller ap, but inside the app, it opens musiccast app and its not as easy as the previous.. it is not easy to find a setting in it.. but i think i get used to previous , and it will take time to absorbe the feature locations :)
earc (enhenced Audio Return Channel) is impressive.. if you have some other devices already connected to your tv's hdmi inputs, you can get their audio from this device easily.. there are some small problems with LG tvs.. when you shutdown both using a intelligent remote, i have harmony 650, if avr shuts before tv, next time lg forgets arc connection and returns to internal speakers as output, but this is not the problem of avr.. its because of LG..
about the output voltage.. its 110volts.. only 110.. i am using it in europe.. is 220volts here.. :)) so about 600watt 110-200 transformer is enough to convert.. (rx-v775 was 110-240 volt) .. do not plug it if you have other then 110volts in your country..
about the refurbished quality.. on the front panel there is no visible stratches etc.. but on top and black plastics parts.. there are visible stratches.. but its ok for me..
last words.. i highly recommend it if you are between denon, onkyo and yamaha.. better then others in this price range..
