I had been a Yamaha fan having had good results with a 7 year-old Yamaha non-HDMI receiver. When it was time to upgrade a few months ago, I jumped ship to Pioneer, largely on Home Theater's positive review of the VSX-52. In particular, the VSX-52 is more powerful (specs are equal but HT lab measurements show the Pioneer is superior in dB output), has the WONDERFUL AirPlay feature, and costs less to boot. I bet the Yamaha is a fine receiver, but for my money and based on my positive experience, the VSX-52 is a better buy.

Am looking to replace my non-HDMI Yammie, and am looking at Marantz, Pioneer Elite, and Yammie. Like Airplay, but likely will use Apple TV, so dont believe AP will be needed. Have had 2 Yammie's, My old 2 channel is 20 years old, and the AV receiver !0. Both still workperfectly. Am concerned that Elite cannot match the Yamaha for durability. Anybody have experience with Pioneer Elite?

Hello David,

I'm very interested in Yamaha's line of Aventage AVRs and I found your article very informative. Do you happen to have a review of the Yamaha RX-A2010?

Sorry, I don't. This is the only model of the Yamaha that I've reviewed this year, but the 2010 will probably meet or exceed many of the features/performance of this model. I believe it has a better video processor and slightly more power and would be on my short list of products to sample if I were in the market for an AVR.

Overall I like this receiver. The on screen display is great. The sound is awesome. I love Yamaha for all their different DSP modes.
