You could always stick a magnifying glass to the front of the AVR to make the volume read out bigger.
That’s one thing I really like about my ancient 3090 – a lighted LED on the volume knob that shows its position. ‘Course, I guess they don’t used motorized volume controls anymore...

I have a 3090 sitting in my lounge room system, and that LED on the volume is very handy.

FWIW one MAJOR difference, to me anyway, between the 2500, 2600, 2700, 4600, and RX-9, and all the rest of Yamahas receivers, is that you only get manual access to the PEQ bands on these models.
Some of the lower models like the 1700 do give you a fixed multi-band Graphic EQ however.

AFAIK the only place Yamaha tells you this is in the manuals, and they are making .pdf's of them hard to find. I wonder why...

You'll hear "the 5xxx model sold in big box stores is the same as the Rxxxxx model sold through dealers" a lot. Basically true, BUT you will not get manual access to mutiband parametric EQ on the big box models.

Manually adjusting the EQ bands is available in the HTR models.

I’ve noticed this too, since they re-designed their web site. A month or so ago someone gave me this link for manuals from the Canadian web site:
http://www.yamaha.ca/av/Manuals.jsp#...g?from=support

You can find them on the US website, from this page. However, you do have to register to access them – nothing more than using an e-mail address and a password of your choice. Select “Manuals” from the drop-down box.
http://www.yamaha.com/yec/Pages/Sear...&CNTYP=PRODUCT

Don’t know about you guys, but they’ve been loading really slow for me for weeks.

Regards,
Wayne

Well, I've decided to put my V1700 up for sale and go with the Denon 2807....

If you know of anyone looking for a good deal on one... it's right!

Sonnie,

The obvious question -- why?

Do you already have the Denon? Have you compared it head to head with the Yamaha?

Features in a nutshell.

I've owned the 3805, 3806 and installed a couple of 2805's. A couple of things I like are larger volume display from my seat and independent crossovers for each channel. Another is a max volume setting that was handy to control my daughter's finger on the Volume Up button.

As far as sound... I really don't know. I don't remember much about the 2805's, other than the features. I only ever used the 3805 and 3806 as pre-pro's to my Earthquake amp. They were neutral in their sound IMO. I hope that it will at least still be neutral or on the warm side like the Yamaha, which as stated, I really like.

I know it sounds silly but those few features have really spoiled me and the volume view bugs me to no end.

Sonnie,
Sorry to hear the Yamaha didn't work for you. But it sounds like you've had experiences with other equipment, which puts you in a good position to make these sorts of decisions. Bottom line is you've got to be comfortable with your equipment. These minor things can be very bothersome and who needs 'em. You'd think that by now and with a new generation of receiver each year, Yamaha would have these issues mastered . Let us know how the 2807 works out.
