  • I assume this wouldn't have HDMI 2.1 would it?

  • Still waiting on my last AVR from 3 months ago from UK……

  • Hmm. This looks pretty good. I've got issues with my crappy old Samsung surround combo unit.

    Would this work ok with those speakers? They say they are 3 ohm.

    Also looking at the Yamaha 5.1 Channel, 4 in/1 Out, 70W, Bluetooth, AV Receiver - RXV385B (Black) for 385 on Amazon.. this looks a bit more future proof.

    • What is at the end of the speaker wires - crappy coloured plastic connectors which are proprietary? You could always get the wire stripper out. Just concerned about the 3 ohms. The receiver may have a 4 ohm minimum.

      • "Speaker Impedance. 6–16 ohms". So no go. The receiver is putting through a lot of power with the risk of blowing the speakers.

      • Yeah plastic connectors at the receiver end. Easily cut and stripped.

        Just the 3 ohm vs 6 ohm thing I have to worry about. Surely it would still work, just more of a chance to blow them up maybe? But there is weirdness that happens with analogue signals and mismatched impedance.

        I feel like I'm going to have the same problem with any receiver and these crap speakers.

        • if you have 3 ohm speakers why the hell are you even trying a $500 shitbox

          speakers that hard probably need to be moving to integrated amps or maybe even separates

          • @tonyjzx: Lol. The speakers are from a $499 surround sound/DVD combo system (with wireless rears). I've been willing it to die for years. This would be a definite upgrade.

    • Buy used speakers on gumtree or Facebook marketplace. I've bought heaps of used home theatre gear for my friends and family there. It definitely wouldn't be healthy for the receiver to use 3ohm speakers and the good thing about buying used is if you don't like it you can just sell it for what you paid for it.

      • Yeah good option. Might be able to botch it by adding a resistor. (Starts ducking and weaving daggers being thrown by audiophiles)

  • Not networked otherwise a pretty solid deal .. at this price point anyway ..but why buy a brand new receiver… a Denon/Yammy second hand with Atmos is about the same price.. if it is working after a year I'd say it is safe to buy a used unit without a warranty..IMHO . Still the deal is solid if you can go without any networking only bluetooth and 6 ohms as the minimum on speakers ..here is a review but to each his/her own https://www.whathifi.com/au/reviews/sony-str-dh790.. it states spring clipping as a neg..I'd say biggest neg is lack of networking

  • eww spring clips

    sign of super budget

  • Anyone knows of any good technicians to fix AV Receivers?
