Original PAIR20 20% off Sparesbox & Videopro on eBay Deal Post
Just bought a VSX-932 yesterday. But i cant justify the extra $155 and plus my cabinet wont fit with the enlarged case of the 933. Nonetheless, good deal for the 933. Some people would benifit with the extra features for the extra money. It's the cheapest i've seen since the last jb hifi deal.
which is better the yamaha rx-685 or the Pioneer 933, same price, not sure if i even need this high end, for 5 in ceiling speaker system. What does the 933 have that the 932 doesnt?
thats awesome,thanks for that. cant see the extra price worth it for the 933
@blackwalnut: Probably not, unless you need the extra inputs etc.
Comparison Yamaha has the slight advantage for power(90w), 10w more @ 8ohms compared to the vsx933. Very similar specs otherwise.
I bought my vsx932 via kg electronics using the Program20 code which gets the receiver to $535.20
where did you get the 932 from ?
Thanks grababargain, that's the best price I've seen for the V685 to date. Been waiting to replace one toasted in a power surge from all the storms we've been having.
why choose that over the Pioneer?
caus yamaha is better than pioneer?
RXV2085 will be on my doorstep next friday, this will be my 4th in about the last 20 years.
Niiceee…that's one beast of a unit. Someday, i'll invest in a beefy unit like that.
just measured my cabinet and it is 170mm height, all these receivers are 171 or 173 in height ! back to the drawing board.
Yeah, normal receivers are very bulky in dimension. I have problem with the depth in buying av receivers. Unless you go with a slim model. But slim models are usually 50watts @8ohms 2ch driven of power only as opposed to a VSX932 or 933 80w @ 8ohms.
i was really happy to get either of the ones listed, but short by 3 mm !!
Here's an idea, perhaps you can take off the feet of the avr and put a rubber/foam padding on all four corners. That way, you get the height clearance that you need. I did that on my denon avr last time and it's just a simple screw to take it off. Then, buy external usb powered computer fans for air circulation in the cabinet and you should be sweet.
@Volution: cheers, i didnt know the legs come off, because i actually have more room in the cabinet, it has a frame around the front, so potentaily take legs off and put them back on. gather they must screw on and off?
@blackwalnut: On my denons, it's just a simple screw. One screw for each ends. I'd imagine it will be the same with any receiver as the feets are just plastic feets screwed to the chassis.
