4 out of 5 eggsMulti Zone

This review is from: YAMAHA RX-A2030 9.2-Channel Receiver

Pros: Multi-Zone
Flexible Configuration
Variety of Inputs
Enough Power

Cons: Awkward Zone Controls
Awkward Amp Configuration Control
Price

Other Thoughts: I bought this because it was (1) on sale (2) multi-zone which I needed and (3) not overly powerful or packed with features because I don't need all that.

In configuring the amp, you actually NEED to have it connected to a TV otherwise you cannot do the amp config setup procedure. I found this incredibly annoying because the intention was for this to never be connected to a TV. So I had to connect one involving moving large items and many cords around. Furthermore it was new construction and I didn't have a TV at the new house yet so add to the frustration. If they simply included a step by step way to configure it for each amp configuration, that would have sufficed but you absolutely need a TV

On the control side, the zone control on the remote is strange. One must first open the sub-door, then press zone several times to get your desired zone then use the power key and volume to control that zone. If you use two zones at once (living and kitchen), you have to basically treat the remote like an old 0-9 phone where typing a text you have to hit a key several times to get the letter you want. Lots of button pressing so not very user-friendly if this were to be your primary use of the amp (like me).

On the positive side, the amp performs well. The sound is nice and clear. I since decided to just put it with the TV in the family room and extend and pipe some additional 3/4 conduit to have all the stuff controlled in one unit. I wish the remote was more powerful. For example, the Bose Lifestyle system remote volume works across the house. Long range. This one, I have to be in the room to adjust volume so I have to go into the family room to adjust volume of the two zones. Sometimes you want it loud other times not. I do like the independent set volume levels that are possible. I'd like an "all zone" control. Set each zone to the desired volume. One control powers up z2 and z3 and each volume movement moves both up/down until one is maximized.

The unit is sizeable but doesn't get overly hot. I haven't used it enough to review the TV aspects but it seems to sound good running the Bose Lifestyle speakers. I have no sub or even a cone larger than 2" dia so there's not much bass but it doesn't sound bad at all. I plan to now get new speakers and sell the Bose system or use it in another room. Overall a decent system I just wish the zone controls took more of a center stage rather than being an afterthought - but it seems they don't make receivers for a customer like me anymore unless you pay a heck of a lot more money.

This review is from: YAMAHA RX-A2030 9.2-Channel Receiver

Pros: Good sound, plenty of clean power for my application

Cons: The interface is too complex. Different processing schemes are too hard to keep switched off when switching around inputs and the receiver is far too complex and cumbersome to use even when you figure out how. Most of the "scenes" sound horrid and no one in their right mind would ever use the vast majority of them.

Yamaha is more into providing lots of useless features than it is into providing a useful, easy to use interface.

Other Thoughts: Not worth the $800 I paid, let alone the list price that's almost twice as much.

This review is from: YAMAHA RX-A2030 9.2-Channel Receiver

Pros: Got mine while it was on sale. Unbelievably good price! Easy setup. Love the sound quality; the Cinema DSP mode provides a great sound field for much of my TV watching. I still have a lot of exploring to do, but so far, I am totally happy. Just an outstanding product!

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsYamaha RX-A2030 AVR

This review is from: YAMAHA RX-A2030 9.2-Channel Receiver

Pros: This Yamaha RX-A2030 AVR has almost everything you could ask for in terms of features (less wifi and bluetooth). I really do not need Dolby Atmos standard (additional speakers in the ceiling) – 5.1 to 7.2 is good enough for me. This way I saved $800 by buying RX-A2030 instead RX-A2040.

So I was looking for AVR which has:

- good quality amp (low 0.06 % THD, over 100 W to all channels)
- good quality DACs
- HDMI I/O
- Ethernet port (wifi would be nice , but is not a deal breaker – I use powerline Ethernet module)
- extensive audio codec and format support (many Dolby and DTS formats, FLAC)
- HDMI with 3D ARC
- AV controller app for android
- front port inputs (USB, HDMI, composite)
- additional zone controller
- room acoustics multi point measurements

This AVR has excellent reviews on many AVR forums (like many other Yamaha and Denon AVRs).
I guess I was the fist who bought RX-A2030 from World Wide Stereo (via Newegg is a reseller) so I decided to write short review. The competition between Yamaha and Denon AVRs was close but overall when it came to quality, features, and pricing Yamaha won!

Cons: lack of wifi and blusetooth - this can by fixed by buying these two adapters or using powerline Ethernet module.
