  1. There is some good info in this Video of Gene's called ECO Is Killing the Amp Performance of Your Yamaha AVENTAGE AV Receiver! about power output, distortion & Pre-Amp mode with and without ECO mode engaged. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FFtqA90PkM
  2. Some thoughts from Gene's pending review of the Yamaha RX-A6A: Gene is talking directly to the Yamaha Design Engineers in Japan about the issue before posting his review. Let's see what their response is to Gene's findings. Link to Gene's post for those comments: https://forums.audioholics.com/forums/threads/yamaha-aventage-2021-av-receivers-bulk-up-on-power-and-8k-features.122355/page-21#post-1509856 Also in case you missed Gene's video on the "Extra Bass" feature in Yamaha current & previous generations of AVR. See: Do watch this video if you aren't familiar with the big caveat about its use. Yamaha should really remove that option when speakers are set to small with a firmware update so people can't accidentally configure their Yamaha AVR that way. This is from the RX-A3080/RX-A2080 Manual for our RX-A3080 regarding Extra Bass. No caveats about its use with small front speakers in the RX-A6A Manual here either: https://manual.yamaha.com/av/20/rxa6a/en-US/317408139.html https://manual.yamaha.com/av/20/rxa6a/en-US/314142987.html To be honest, I've never used it as I've never seen the need on our system. I did see this article, but still couldn't see the need in our system. https://www.audioholics.com/home-theater-connection/utilizing-extra-bass
  3. That is excellent new for owners of compatible receivers and processors such as Denon AVC-A110, AVC-X8500HA, AVC-X6700H, AVC-X4700H, AVC-X3700H, AVR-X2700H and AVR-S960H and Marantz AV8805A, AV7706, SR8015, SR7015, SR6015, SR5015 and NR1711. Owners of the early models will still have to can use the SPK618 HDMI adaptor with this.
  4. Yes there is a fair bit of difference. See: https://www.zkelectronics.com/compare/marantz-sr6015/uk/marantz-sr5015/uk/ Better to buy the better model now rather than regret purchase later.
  5. Worth having listen/watch of this presentation which was live streamed about 4 hours ago. It is a long presentation at 1:36:22 with lots and lots of detailed info. Hosted by Gene from Audioholics and Phil Shea from Yamaha. Really good info about the actual size and thickness of heatsink at 41:21 in the new models. Most of the heatsink is on the bottom. Those thin fins are only a very small portion of the heatsink structure. Prior to that Gene talks about the amount of power that the RX-A3080 was able to deliver over an extend period of time in a large room without getting hot. At 1:13:20 Phil details what each board /section does within the RX-A8A including the three very large heat sinks on the HDMI Processing Chips at 1:16:00. All HDMI inputs support the full 40Gbps. No testing protocol currently available for HDMI 2.1 is discussed at 1:17:39. Which is why they are still testing the HDMI 2.1 Beta firmware. Very interesting. w
  6. Hi DubbyMcDubs, If this has been sold could you please let me know. I haven't had a reply from you to any of the PMs I've sent asking to buy your D50s. Thanks!
  7. Hi lazarian, OK no problem. Enjoy! Thanks for letting me know it is sold.
  8. Hi DubbyMcDubs, I have sent a PM about buying your JDS Atom Headphone Amplifier, but haven't heard back from you. Cheers
  9. Hi DubbyMcDubs, I have sent a PM about buying your Topping D50s, but haven't heard back from you. Cheers
  10. Can you see metal inside the Speaker Binding Posts like below: Or is there plastic covers over the top of each Speaker Binding Post as shown below. If so, you need to remove the plastic lug/cover on top of each Speaker Binding Post. See:
  11. Yes any L30 with Serial Number before 2012xxxx falls under the recall list.
  12. The link below info on the new Onkyo (TX-NR7100,TX-NR6100, X-NR5100 & TX-RZ50), Integra (DRX-5.4,DRX-3.4 & DRX-2.4) & Pioneer (VSX-LX505,VSX-LX305 & VSX-LX105) Receivers. See: https://virtualvoxx.com/premium#section_receivers There are videos to watch on Dirac, and you can download the Information Sheet PDF on each new new Onkyo (TX-NR7100,TX-NR6100, X-NR5100 & TX-RZ50), Integra (DRX-5.4,DRX-3.4 & DRX-2.4) & Pioneer (VSX-LX505,VSX-LX305 & VSX-LX105) Receiver models. INTEGRA: DRX-2.4 is listed here for $1550.00 here: https://www.rio.com.au/product/integra-drx-2-4-7-2-channel-av-receiver-integra/ INTEGRA DRX-3.4 is listed for $2,100.00 here: https://www.rio.com.au/product/integra-drx-3-4-9-2-channel-av-receiver-integra/ INTEGRA: DRX-5.4 is listed for $3400.00 here: https://www.rio.com.au/product/integra-drx-5-4-9-2-channel-av-receiver-integra/ Can't find Australian Pricing for the Onkyo & Pioneer Models. You'll notice that some of the 2.1's are @40Gbps and some are at @24Gbps... this is a result of how the cards are manufactured (some of 3 inputs, others 4) and satisfying the bottom line bill of materials for a given model. https://www.avnirvana.com/threads/onkyo-pioneer-elite-and-integra-deep-dive-a-fresh-look-at-the-brands%E2%80%99-latest-av-receivers.8292/#post-62989
