Yamaha Aventage RX-A720, RX-A820, RX-A1020 Receiver Preview

 

It is receiver season and we can't help but check out every single offering that is new on the market. With the big manufacturers releasing entirely updated lines, we can barely keep up. That that's not going to stop us from trying. The latest releases...

We like this new trend in receivers. Rather than doling out features as the price going up, we are seeing features hitting lower price points and the number and types of connections increasing with price. The Aventage line from Yamaha has been popular...

Great, while it lasted.

 

I have 2 of these: 1 in my office, that has been powering a 2.1 system for years, and 1 in my home theater, that has been powering a hefty 5.1 (with 2 additional subwoofers, but they have their own amps). The office Aventage, with a much smaller...

- Amazing sound & configurability, while it lasted.

- "Digital Mainboard" died last year; repair costs about as much as a new/used receiver.

YAMAHA RX-A720

 

None for this price. It is a good brand of receiver, it is just a four year old product.

The current model of this receiver is the Rx-A750. Last year it was the 740. The year before that it was the 730. And finally the year before that it was the Rx-A720. So you are being charged current prices for a receiver manufactured four years ago It...

I've thoroughly enjoyed this receiver from setup to listening. I've never had better sound out of my Boston Acoustic towers. Pandora, radio, DVD, it all sounds great. It seems to me my cable TV image is improved; whether that's switching from component...

Everything as advertised

 

Huge upgrade from the receiver that came with a Onkyo HTIB a few years ago. I upgraded my front speakers to Polk Monitor 60s about a year ago, but just was not as impressed with them as I was hoping. After hooking up this Yamaha, I can now saw I am...

didn't come with banana plugs - (had to think of something)

Excellent Choice

 

After going through two Onkyo TX-NR709's in less than a month due to numerous problems their having. I decided on this one. After setting up the YPAO and fine tuning to my liking this receiver is awesome. I thought the Onkyo sounded good but this thing...

Airplay, YPAO, two subwoofer outputs
