    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    Very nice. How well did you find the Audyssey MultEQ32 system to operate and calibrate?

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    Agree; I read that and saw it on a few video reviews. I ordered an Aircom T8 which was shipped today. Do you have a Denon?

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    It is the new 2021 X8500HA flagship model. Basically it is more powerful with a bigger 900 watt power supply, more power per channel at 150W, L/R separated mono block power amps, and ESS DACS. It will be supporting my Sony flagship 83A90J, and Panasonic UB9000 BD player, so it made sense to me...

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    My journey in selecting a new AVR has taken many twists and turns as I learn more every day. Your points are well taken. I appreciate what you are stating as it makes sense from an economic and practical perspective. I started this journey by making side by side comparisons and learning about...

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    @JohnRice - I am aware that I would lose some power from 2 channel 150 wpc driven, but did not realize it could go as low as 60. I was thinking more like 90-100, which is acceptable for my relatively small (20"x15.5'x8') media room. So you are saying that there is no single box solution for a...

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    Great Video; thanks! I would like to see an update of AVR's in this comparison. After more research I am learning more over time and refining my AVR requirements. I am focusing on a single box 11 channel solution and just eliminated the Yamaha RX-A8A due to continued concerns by early owners...

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    @dlaloum - interesting comment regarding analog circuit continuing to work after failed digital processing. I also entertained the purchase of the Integra DRX-5.4 when I was considering a 9 channel AVR as it appeared to be a slight upgrade of the RZ-50. Now focusing on a single box 11 channel...

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    Finally, a response! It is apparent this topic is not of interest on this forum. Thanks for input on Onkyo. The RZ50 is rich with features, including Dirac, and a great value, but I am concerned about the longevity of the new company and unknown prospective repair stateside repair centers. I...

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    I would like to upgrade my 4-year-old 7 channel Yamaha RX-A770BL 4k AVR to a HDMI 2.1 capable 9 channel AVR to be the heart of my home theater system which includes the Sony 83A90J, Panasonic UB9000 BD player, and Definitive Technology 9.2 speaker system. I am trying to keep my budget below...

    Sony A90J 2021 OLED buyers and owners thread

    I used DeNice's published settings on my VT-30 initially, but hired him to do a full calibration in my home, which did make a difference. I wanted my 83A90J QC'd and calibrated prior to shipment. Jrref did my VE calibration and VE sent me the calibration report. It took an extra 10 days or so...

    Sony A90J 2021 OLED buyers and owners thread

    Hi Nelson: I was provided with a delivery date and the Fedex driver called me ahead of time to state he was inbound to my home. He was by himself. Upon delivery, and inspection, you sign the bill of lading accepting delivery. I noted on the paperwork that since I noted the two puncture holes on...

    Sony A90J 2021 OLED buyers and owners thread

    Similar to Tom C, Fedex delivered my 83A90J to my driveway using a lift gate truck. I had pre-planned how I was going to do this before delivery. I had a dolly already in place and the Fedex driver was happy to assist me taking it through my garage. At that point I was going to leave it in the...

    Sony A90J 2021 OLED buyers and owners thread

    I would like to state upfront that the 83A90J is the best TV I have ever owned. I am totally impressed with the clarity, fine detail, color, pop and brightness of the panel. Thanks to VE's QC program, my panel is flawless. I have a Yamaha RX-A770 AVR with a Definitive Technology home theater...

    Nice job on your A90J livestream tonight! Very informative with real world data from VE. I will have an 83" A90J with my name on it at the end of May.
