Nice looking place and toys! You will enjoy the unpacking..
Very nice kit.
Unless you need XLR balanced audio, not sure if you will hear the difference with the 3070 having slightly more power and different Dac's.Very nice kit.
Seriously thinking about upgrading my Yamaha to a 3070. Might save a few pennies and go for the 2070 though. I probably wont miss too much unless anyone can think of a really good reason to go for the top of the line?
None of the legacy Yamaha models have a discrete IR command for dimming the front panel display. You can only adjust the display via the receiver's settings.Now have the 1070 but only just turned it on to use system... no adjustments yet. There is no dimmer so what Yamaha model do I need to add that command into my harmony.
Also whilst having a quick fiddle with the sound types I set to DD Dsur on sky but it keeps flashing between that and a NEO option.. Change to some others and they flash between one and another. The only way to stop the info changing was to set it to surr.code but I would like when it says SKY HD for instance to say DD surr. Tried some more button pressing and now things like SciFi/adventurer flashing between two sets of info.
Thanks for the response... cant believe the dimmer is in the menu but have sussed an activity for my harmony which takes me straight there. As for your other help, I will take it all in and have a proper play when I set it up over the weekendNone of the legacy Yamaha models have a discrete IR command for dimming the front panel display.

You've more than likely set the SURROUND DECODER mode to Neural:X and the incoming signal is Dolby Digital. The receiver doesn't alternate between Neural:X and Dolby Surround Upmixing and only one of the two can be used at any one time. The display is indicating that you are applying Neural:X upmixing to the Dolby Digital audio coming into the receiver. To change the mode being used then use the SUR. DECODE button to select one.
The Sci-Fi and Adventure on the display are an indication of DSP modes you've engaged. The front pannel display can show various aspects of the receiver's activity depending on whicjh display mode you set it to. You can toggle between these using the INFO button on the remote. The button can be used to toggle the display between the AUDIO DECODER mode being used and the DSP PROGRAM that may be engaged. If you select the AUDIO DECODER option then both the incoming signal type as well as the SURROUND DECODER mode you are applying to it will be displayed. THe display will alternate between the type of incoming audio and the mode the receiver is set to if you select the AUDIO DECODER option.
Yes, agree. An additional option to turn the display off would be nice too. Are far as I can tell only selecting pure direct will turn the display off but all room correction then also gets turned off too. Another annoyance is that the lip sync GUI takes up half the screen so you can't see the picture properly whilst adjusting it!!Had a bit more of a play and why Yamaha think that you would want your display flashing at you in the dark is beyond me.
The display would alternate between the source format and the surround decoder mode being applied irrespective of what that incoming format is. Why would the receiver not inform you of these two seperate things if receiving PCM?Had a bit more of a play and why Yamaha think that you would want your display flashing at you in the dark is beyond me. Why if you change the input from bitstream/dolby digital to PCM does it flash between PCM and Dsurr once and then stay on Dsurr where as if the signal coming in is DD it continues to flash between the 2. If the idea is to purely inform you the incoming and outgoing then why do the alternating for one type only.
SKY HD outputting DD ...audio decoder set to auto...... it alternates DD/ Dsur. Without touching anything on the receiver, go into sky settings and change to normal. After a couple of secs the receiver says PCM then Dsur then stays on Dsur. .. no alternating.The display would alternate between the source format and the surround decoder mode being applied irrespective of what that incoming format is.

Toggle the display to the DSP PROGRAM option using the INFO button and the display remains static. Only the DSP PROGRAM is shown in this display mode or only the mode the receiver is set to if not using a DSP PROGRAM. Only the AUDIO DECODER display mode alternates the display between the incoming format and the mode.
Press the surround decoder button and set the receiver to DOLBY SURROUND. Now rell me it isn't alternating between PCM and DOLBY SURROUND. It will alternate irrespective of what the source format is unless the format is one which bypasses the mode that is engaged for that source. One example would be if streaming Atmos TrueHD to the receiver while the DOLBY SURROUND mode is engaged. Atmos negates the need for DOLBY SURROUND so it isn't applied to the Atmos audio so wouldn't appear on the display. THe surrond decoder modes are as applicable to PCM audio as they are to other formats so why wouldn't PCM exhibit the exact same behaviour from the display as seen if dealing with other formats?SKY HD outputting DD ...audio decoder set to auto...... it alternates DD/ Dsur.

You are saying it makes no difference what the input is , it should still alternate... so im confused
Its nothing to do with listening to PCM its about how the display handles the different inputs it. The video shows exactly what's happening as I change the sky ouput. The straight button hasn't even been pressed. Got the size down to 24mbs but still to large. The surround decoder is set to both dsurr and auto in my tests.
Im not just getting PCM displayed ...it appears once then shows Dsurr. If you use DD it appears once then dsurr then starts alternating. My comment is the fact that one input alternates and the other doesn't.... regardless of surround decoder The video shows this happening ... Theres no point you repeating the same thing over and over again it doesn't explain why this has to happen. Why continuously tell you DD in Dsurr out but only tell you once that PCM in Dsurr out and If its not applied dsurr out as you say then why say it on the screen. If I see dsurr on the display it would make me assume that it had been applied.
Anyway I know im right in what im seeing so its pointless carrying on this discussion . You think differently and that's your prerogative
The article is now outdated and the current Adventage models all EQ down to 15.6Hz compared to the 31.3Hz of the models predating the Adventage x60 models.I have now run YPAO with multiple measurements and it has made slightly smaller PEQ adjustments across the frequency range and has set the sub output 4.5dB higher than it did previously with a single measurement. All good.
It has probably been posted before in other Yamaha threads but this was a useful article for me on YPAO:
Yamaha YPAO R.S.C – Take Two
Not according to Yamaha who say the receiver EQ's itself all the way down to 15.6Hz.Yes, true but it's also the limitation of the Yamaha microphone not the Yamaha software and because of this YPAO still only attempts to EQ the sub to ~30Hz. The automated YPAO does NOT use and EQ the 15Hz PEQ band. To EQ down further to 15Hz you need to copy the YPAO results to manual and activate 15Hz as one of the PEQ adjustable bands.
Antimode for one sub only is ~£230+ whereas a Umik-1 is around £85 including shipping. When combining a Umik-1 (or similar) with REW (free!) you can analyse and adjust all speakers in multiple systems if required to your heart's content.
