Solid Receiver, Perfect for My Office Home Theater
Overall I am pleased with the Aventage line. However it seems to be lacking in features for such an expensive receiver relative to the RX line. Should have YPAO R.S.C. and YPAO Volume at this price point. Seems to strip down for such an expensive piece of kit. The Digital Music Enhancer is a little conservative, lacking the punch and performance of the same feature in my Pioneer Elite AVR. I wouldn't configure this is my living room or theater room AVR. But for an office or bedroom it is excellent.

What sets Yamaha AVR's apart from the competition is its excellent AV controller app. It's rock stable, simple to use and consistent across Android and iOS platforms. This really enhances the value proposition of Yamaha. Don't think I'll be buying any other brand, but if I had it all over to do again I out for the A780 because of the weak YPAO feature set.

great receiver
I use this receiver on my patio 5.1 and deck for stereo outside. Fills the patio with perfect surround sound and delights my cigar smoking friends outside. Better than I thought it would be.

Wonderful Small Room Performance
Excellent small room sound. Driving a pair of KLH 17 speakers from the late 60s. Great MusicCast integration. Using in our bedroom, mostly for AirPlay, Spotify, Net Radio, and the Tuner. May add the new wireless Yamaha turntable. For my home theatre setup in a larger room, I have the RX-A1070 which I love so I'm familiar with the many useful functions and, especially, the fantastic Yamaha apps. The user interface doesn't quite have the screen graphics I'm used to and there seems to be one missing function (or one I cannot readily find) which is the ability for me to connect to the receiver with my Bluetooth headphones.

Is the bluetooth aptx? Can I connect a Fiio portable lossless player via BT aptx hd?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. The Bluetooth uses SBC/AAC codec and a compressed music enhancer.
