    I've been looking to upgrade my Harman Kardon receiver (AVR-156). I've got 5.1 Jensen speakers and 'Dream' sub with Sony 75" 4K HDR tv. I have no idea when it comes to audio gear, so wondering if this amp would enhance the surround experience watching movies? Is there much content available with Dolby Atmos and is it worth installing the additional speakers for that feature? Any advice would be great!

      You'd pickup 4K video and higher resolution audio support with the new yamaha. DTSX would "work" with 5.1 layout but for Dolby Atmos & best alround improvements just grab some ceiling speakers or bookshelves wall mounted high. 5.1.2 layout.

      There would be 150+ Atmos 4k movies out and 2 for $32 @ JBHIFI currently. Lots of old movies are getting retouched and released in 4k atmos ie Matrix, Saving Private Ryan.

      I have last years model and throughly enjoy added benefits. A lot more immersive and adds to 4K HDR benefits. Even xbox atmos games :-)

        Doesn't need to be 4k either to get Atmos. Blu-ray has it too.

          Thanks @elcheapodeniro and @scuderiarmani for your responses. To date I've only streamed my movies or played the occasional blu ray through my PS4. Would you recommend buying a 'proper' bluray player? Will those players support the newer Ultra 4K blu rays that are being released? Will all blurays have Dolby Atmos or do I need to check each one? MI4 looks like it has 'Dolby TrueHD'? https://www.jbhifi.com.au/movies-tv-shows/movies-tv-shows-on...

          Thanks heaps!

            @panamawhisky: Every movie needs to be checked. 4k discs aren't guaranteed to have it either….

            As for player, you'll need a 4k player, not a regular Bluray, generally around the $300 mark, though I think I saw some cheaper lately at Harvey Norman.

    Great price drop from $1049 rrp. Here's a comparison between the v585 and v685.

    Just ignore those inflated power ratings after 80w… Even that's inflated.

    4 inputs seems low for a receiver around $1k.

    Great price and post Op! However these Yamaha Amos seem to be one of the ugliest looking ones compared to the others!

    Any recommendations for 2.1 receivers? Got a set of passive 2.1 needing power

    •  

      This is a well spec'd unit Lurvin that you can find for around $600 RN602

        kindda wasteful to spend $500-600 on a good receiver for 2 speakers and 1 sub. Am looking for a small 2.1 receiver so i can put the spare 2.1 speakers into good use

    price went back to $829 :(
