Yamaha HTR-2071 5.1 Channel AV Receiver $185 @ Harvey Norman


My receiver died last week and I noticed the previous deal at $195 had expired on the Harvey Norman website. I checked a catalogue I received today and noticed it had been listed as a special again, however, $10 cheaper. I am going to attempt to pick one up this afternoon.

Offering pure enjoyment for the home entertainment enthusiast, the Yamaha HTR-2071 5.1 Channel AV Receiver features high-fidelity sound, 4K Ultra HD support, and Virtual CINEMA FRONT to help you hear and see your favourite multimedia content from abroad, new horizon.

Key Features

5-channel speaker setup outputs superb audio backed by thumping bass and crisp lows
Dialogue Level Adjustment for proper sound balance with dialogue and vocals
ECO mode operation facilitates up to 20% less power consumption
Multi-language colour OSD with cover art display

What's In The Box?

1x Main Unit
1x FM Antenna
1x Remote Control
2x Batteries (AAA, R03, UM-4)
1x CD-ROM (Owner's Manual)
1x Quick Start Guide

Edit: It’s listed as $449 at Joyce Mayne currently. I suspect as with the last deal both bing lee and Joyce Mayne will lower their price to match.

  • Great reviews on this. We just moved house and have a second TV/family room. Thanks OP! Grabbed one.


  • Really? you can get a decent AV receiver at this price?

    • If you just need to connect some speakers and you don't need any particular features, it's fine. I wouldn't call it decent, but it's certainly outstanding value. Of course if you're playing in this price range, you might be better off looking for a second hand bargain.

      • Good info, thanks.

        I'm looking for upgraded bang for buck multi room sound, with chromecast audio.

        Looked at 9,or even 11 channel receivers… Kill two birds etc. But the cost is crazy

  • can this work outdoors in a shaded entertainment area or will dust kill it eventually?

    Fabulous value for the price, the specs are well worth it. Tempted.

    4 HDMI ports as well. Decent outage per channel.

  • No Bluetooth.

  • Grabbed one, have been looking for something that supports 4K to replace an older Yamaha model with. Thanks op!

    • what? does 4k apply to audio? thought that was just resolution for tv.

      • 4k resolution pass through, so you can plug all your devices into the receiver it will pass the 4k picture to your TV while the receiver handles the sound.

  • I believe this is the same spec as the RXV-385 but with the addition of a powered sub out to run a passive sub if you choose.

  • —- 70 W per Channel (6 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.09% THD, 2-ch driven)
    —- 100 W per Channel (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9% THD, 1-ch driven)
    —- 135 W per Channel (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 10% THD, 1-ch driven)

    Re the above,why are specs published "into 6 ohms" and not the traditional "into 8 ohms"?
    …and while I'm at it…RMS per channel and not simply something like the above "70w."?

  • Thank OP. Snatched one up as our amp is about to kick the bucket too.
    HN didn't even have the price in their system in store when I called up. They were surprised at how cheap it was.

  • N00b question, would the receiver be better than pioneer vsx-818v?

  • I'm new to AV receivers as well: Whats a good speaker set to buy with this one? Or Should I go second hand? what specs do I look for?

  • Seeing this sort of price for a recent Yamaha (even a cheap one) makes me realize why selling old amps & receivers has tanked on Gumtree and other places the last few years. Those old few shed amps I hoped to sell, no way!

  • My Home theatre Receiver Rx-v1079 is starting to have issues ( not sure if it is the AV or something else) like screen on screen keeps going out or sometimes has lot of noise. Have 5.1 setup with projector and thinking if I can use this one for testing testing or no point in downgrading that much?
    Have Paradigm Monitor 11 tower speakers, Centre 1 and Paradigm ultra cube sub 12 (650 w).
    Has anyone used this receiver with bigger speakers?

  • Which budget speakers to go with

  • I bought one at $195 a couple of weeks ago as my other one died. It does the job nicely and is perfect for a small to medium room.

    With HDMI 2.1 on the horizon it's a bad time to be spending over $1000 on a new Atmos receiver, so this will do until the 2020 models come out. The only thing I wish it had was component inputs for my OG Xbox. This is as bare bones as it gets, lacking modern network features and older analogue inputs around back, but I still prefer this over a soundbar.

  • These have issues with 4K 60hz especially with HDR and no USB means you can't update the firmware. I've got one.

  • VERY tempted. I've been trying to sell my 7.1 speakers sold to me for cheap by a friend but haven't really been using them. Maybe it's time to buy this and try it out. (letting go of the two excess speakers but I'm fine with that. 7.1 AV receivers are expensive)
