At least I have some ideas now... :sarcastic:
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...You could always stick a magnifying glass to the front of the AVR to make the volume read out bigger.
I have a 3090 sitting in my lounge room system, and that LED on the volume is very handy.

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: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...
Sonnie,Well, I've decided to put my V1700 up for sale and go with the Denon 2807.... :huh:
If you know of anyone looking for a good deal on one... it's right! :yes:
Yeah, I know how that is, to be spoiled on whatever little things you like, and then to have them taken away from you. It makes a difference. But independent crossovers for each channel is critical. I would not consider buying a pre/pro/receiver that locked me into a single crossover point for all channels. Max volume would be nice as my daughter gets bigger...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.
No way! You know what you like, and there's nothing wrong with that!I know it sounds silly but those few features have really spoiled me and the volume view bugs me to no end.
I've read a few articles that suggest the independant crossovers can cause phase problems. Maybe someone with this feature could run some tests with REW and see if its possible to optimize the phase setting for more than one crossover frequency.A couple of things I like are larger volume display from my seat and independent crossovers for each channel.
You do get a 7 band EQ with fixed frequencies and no Q adjustment on at least some of the HTR models, similar to what Sonnie has on the 1700.Manually adjusting the EQ bands is available in the HTR models.
Since the PS3 has the capability of doing Dolby TrueHD lossless codec decode internally you are best off letting the player (PS3) do the decode and use the uncompressed lossless multichannel linear PCM via HDMI to get the audio to your receiver....the Yamaha is showing the MPCM only. It sounds good but it makes me wonder if that is the best setting or if I have other choices with the receiver. Could/Should I use the DSP settings to improve it or to force DD or DTS?
