Gulp!

Just read the manual. Ignore my previous!

I'll advise you in a couple of years after I've read it all.

I WANT ONE !!

Will it improve on my V2065 ???

I STILL want one!

Hi RobinKidderminster

Just as with the RX-V2065 the Aventage RX-A2020 also offers the ability to customize DSP Soundfield parameters such as room size, DSP level, liveness, reverb time, etc. Only that the RX-A2020's processing is even more powerful Smile

Btw, the Aventage RX-A2020 is a worthwhile improvement over the already impressive RX-A2065. Simply put the RX-V2065 sounds as though its reproducing music and movie soundtracks in slow motion in comparision to the Aventage RX-A2020 :rockout:

All the best

Rick @ Musicraft

That's really interesting information Rick, would you know how you go about changing all of the above and where abouts in the vast menu system I might find those options? Any info would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Unfortunately we are along way away from each other, i'm in Colchester so a considerable way away from you...probably a good thing as you would be parting with cash once I had given you an audition!

Get an audition from a dealer near to you, there must be plenty in your area with you being near to Birmingham? Just don't take your wallet and credit card so you aren't parted with your cash there and then lol :grin:

RE: My Yamaha RX-A2020 review

Right,bare with me;this i think is how it works,flat is the peq of choice for av as it flatens out the overall signal frequencies so that there are no spikes.If you flick thru the options while playing music you should hear a difference,when i used my avr for music i selected through,as to my ears it sounded better.You can manualy set the peq for each speaker,i asked advice on these forums 2 years back,no replies at first,then i think i was advised not to bother :grin:

To customize DSP press 'on screen'with the remote,select 'sound program'(enter)scroll accross to one,press up and there ya go Smile

I wish you'd stop talking about how great the 2020 is. Mine's been delivered, but I'm away working until Friday evening, and I'm out early Saturday morning, so when I'll get to play with my new toy, I don't know.  :boohoo:

Thanks Ben, but that's not going to make me feel any better unfortunately. 

 But I've decided, Friday night is 2020 night.  :)

I would be gagging to get that opened up and set up if it was me BBB just hope you are happy with it come friday evening, looking forward to hearing your thoughts and see how our opinions match or differ. Friday can't come soon enough I'm guessing :grin:

RE: My Yamaha RX-A2020 review

Right. I'm fed up with hearing about how wonderful Oldboy's Yamaha RX-A2020 receiver is, and how great BBB's will be, so just to console myself (sob!) I've decided to put up this poor (1.3 Megapixel mobile phone camera from 2006) picture of my own bog-standard, unimproved, Mark 1 Yamaha RX-A2010, bought in July 2012 for £849.

RE: My Yamaha RX-A2020 review

By the way, people complain about how reflective TV screens can be. What about the reflectiveness of the upper half of the front panel of the 2010?? You can almost see what's on the kitchen table!

RE: My Yamaha RX-A2020 review

I too have a new 2020.

Im having a little problem when playing a DVD, the disply toggles between Dolby Digital and DPL2X Movie.

I have tried altering it to straight and this stops the toggling but was wondering if I have a setting wrong somewhere ?

Is there a way of setting the display to stay on Dolby Digital without toggling back to DPL2X Movie every few seconds ?

Hope someone can help.
