Fantastic Receiver; Very Flexible and Awesome Features
I've had my 2080 from WWS for about 3 years now. I have MusicCast speakers from Yamaha scattered in common areas too....all controlled from MusicCast app on my phone. Nice autospeaker tuning/setup with reference mic. Great set of online streaming capabilities from Tidal to Qobuz, etc. Using mine into (6) Klipsh speakers and a 100W sub and a center speaker.

A pleasure in every way an AV unit should be.
I've used three generations of customizable Denon AV units. The natural progression would've been a Denon AVR-X4500H. After quite a bit of audiophile research I decided that the 5-7yr lifespan of Denon units before failure was not worth it at this price point. Back to where I started in home theater 30+ years ago with Yamaha I've returned and decided on the RX-A2080. The reviews balance between the two home theater icons, but I'm very pleased to say I have no regrets and have found the Yamaha to exceed my expectations. If this unit lasts trouble free for longer than the Denon units previously have I expect to stay with Yamaha unless/until something major tips the scales. Time will tell, but I guarantee the Yamaha RX-A2080 as a home theater/audio unit won't disappoint. I run a 7.2.2 configuration with the mains bi-amped, connect wireless to multiple zones, my main room speakers are all timbre matched Polk Audio RTi A series. This unit is outstanding for my use in every way.

Exceptional Clean Powerhouse
Very happy and impressed with performance and features of this unit. It was time to move up from my beloved workhorse RXV-2400 which provided sixteen years of service and was on about everyday. I just needed more updated options. The improvements of the RX-A2080 was everything I was looking for. Power, functions, and software control are fantastic. Clean audiophile sound. No regrets in this purchase.

Does it actually have 9 ampl8fied channels built in? If so, is it capable of both 7.2.2 or 5.2.4?
2 powered subs and either 2 or 4 Atmos/height channels.
A shopper on Dec 29, 2019
  Thanks for your questions.

The RX-A2080 has provisions for 2 subwoofers, one at the front of your room and the other at the back. However both could be located at the front.
It has the option of 4 (2 Pair) of height speakers, front and rear but you would need an additional 2 channel amplifier connected to the SUR BACK pre outputs.
The 2080 has a great deal of flexibility when in the 7.2 or 9.2 modes.
Follow the link below for the instruction manual and the various options for surround channels or 2nd or 3rd zones.

I have heard there is an issue with overheating on this model, is this correct?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2019
  Heat is the native environment for an amplifier. These receivers don't get hotter than any quality receiver.
I read on one website that this unit has an overheating issue. Any more information on this ?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2019
  A/V receivers with powerful multi-cannel amplifiers and HDMI boards will produce a substantial amount of heat. Proper ventilation is essential to performance and product life. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations for clearance if installing in a cabinet. If clearance is limited a well-designed auxiliary cooling system will help.
