That comes from A20X0 upwards. A1080 cost 980£, A3070 only few hundred more and there could be air in those prices still. Few weeks ago they had these going for 999£.Does this AVR allow for an independent volume and distance management of subs?
Yes I got my 3070 at AVOnline. Next day delivery £1200 - bargain (Well if you can call £1200 for an amp a bargain - me yes, my wife no lol). I suspect it's got very little different to the new 3080 and half the price!That comes from A20X0 upwards. A1080 cost 980£, A3070 only few hundred more and there could be air in those prices still.

No. All Yamaha AV receiver use Class A/B amplification.I see the spec details show the amplification is Class D. Is that right? That is quite a radical change for Yamaha.
OK, just a misprint. I quite happy with Yamaha sticking with Class AB.No. All Yamaha AV receiver use Calss A/B amplification.
Also note that the 135 watts quoted in relative to the receivers 2 channel dynamic power and not its 2 channels driven at 80hms rating.The actual rated power output for 20Hz-20kHz, 2ch driven is 110 W (8 ohms, 0.06% THD).
You may have to wait until next year for the A2090 (A2100????)? Yamaha have already indicated that they wont be replacing their flagship A3080 model this year and will be waiting until next year to replace it. THis is due to the introoduction of HDMI version 2.1. Denon are doing something similar and will not be introducing new replacements for anything above their AVR-X3500 model this year. It may be that Yamaha also waits until next yeat t replace the A1080 and the A2080? Note that the A1080 isn't a new model and was introduced last year.OK, just a misprint. I quite happy with Yamaha sticking with Class AB.
Looking to upgrade from my trusty AX863SE, but looks like the power output is only slightly higher. Anyway the 7 channel processing is a bit of a limitation as I already have a 7.1 setup and if I go to Atmos I'll need more channels. Will look at the 2080 or wait for the 2090
Fully agree with you. I tried an Atmos setup with four Kef upfirers and it added nothing to my system at all. So since I’m unable to install the preferred overhead speakers I’m happy with a simple 7.1 which in itself is probably more elaborate a setup than the average. I’ve had a 3080 since Xmas and it’s a fine sounding amp, really like this series.I suppose the 7.2-channels limitation of processing is only really a problem depending how many speakers you want to run which is pretty obvious.
It would be interesting to see the true take up of immersive sound. Do 50% of the market use the full benefit of the AV receivers they buy? I dunno.
