RX-V683 5.2.2 help

OK I was after a bit of advice if possible. I have a new RX-V683 that's replacing my RX-V1067 as the 1067 was not UHD compatible. I have a setup that includes 2 X front, 1 X Centre, 2 X Subs, 2 X rear Surround (mounted high on the rear wall) and Zone 2 connected to two outside speakers. So I would guess this is a 5.2.1 setup. I have some ceiling speakers on the way to setup a 5.2.2 Atmos system. I'm not sure of how they should be connected to the amp. At the moment I have (see photo) Rear surround connected to (first surround input), Centre to centre, Front to Front, and Zone 2 to Extra SP1. Should I connect the 2 in ceiling speakers to Extra SP2 or swap the Zone 2 to Extra SP2 and put the ceiling speakers on SP1? Or should my rear mounted speakers be connected to the SP2 (surround back input)....its a bit confusing...I have the option to locate the ceiling speakers in front or behind the seated position. Any comments would be appreciated.

I just got the 583. Have a question regarding YPAO speaker crossover setting.My surrounds are satellites while my front 3 speakers are bookshelves capable of going down to 50hz. YPAO set the crossover to 120hz due to the satellites and there is only one crossover setting in this model. Should i lower the crossover to 80hz? Coming from my old Onkyo with Audyssey it was a no no to adjust the crossover lower than the calibrated value.

SIMILAR, but not the same, meaning 99.9% the same, minus the possibility of higher-end components, a fifth foot, some nicer trim and a detachable power cord, just to set context.

That being said, the 783 model is only being sold as an RX-870.

What about setting the front 3 speakers to large?

Sounds like a 5.2 system with a 2.0 Zone B setup.

I emailed Yamaha customer support regarding when the DV firmware update would occur. The response:

"Greetings,

I believe there will be an firmware update that supports Dolby vision for RX models 600 and up at the end of December. I do not have an exact date."

Just bought (and installed) a beautiful new Yamaha RX-V583. My first upgrade in about 15 years. So obviously theres been some technology improvements since then

Im having a hard time getting the receiver to connect to my wifi. Getting a message everytime that Connection failed. Any ideas to help with using musiccast to set it up?

Your Zone 2 speakers should be connected to the SP2 outputs. Your in ceiling atmos speakers should be connected to the SP1 outputs. Keep in mind when using the 2nd zone the atmos speakers are not useable. The amp takes the amplifier assigned to that channel and uses it for zone 2.

According to the Yamaha website, ALL 2017 RX-V (from base 383 and up) models have Dolby Vision, HLG, and 4K Upscaling. The quote you got was probably from last year's 81 series models. No disrespect, but you got a response from a bot.

With all due respect, you are incorrect. If you read the "product information" page thoroughly for any of the 83 series, under "Full 4K Ultra HD Support" you will see this disclaimer:

"*Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log-Gamma will be available via future firmware update."

Also, Scott included the 83 series as needing a firmware update for compatibility in his overview of DV.

Unless you or someone else can confirm that your x83 is currently displaying DV, I will assume based on the Yamaha website and the support response I received that DV will be enabled in firmware around December 2017.

I believe somewhere I read a post that said the TSR-5830 was a re-branded RX-583. Can anyone confirm this and tell me what any differences might be if correct?

Thanks

Hi everyone!

A recent RX-V383 owner with a troubling issue.

I have a detailed post here in the Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat forum but haven't had any replies for the past few days, so please check it out for more info:

http://afterconvert.com/forum/91-aud...-channels.html

I've also recorded a video for you guys to hear the problem: http://streamable.com/uvyur

In short, I've got an issue where when changing channels on over-the-air TV, there is an audible static pop and I believe it is related to the audio stream going off and then on again.
There is a visual confirmation of this as we see the speak channel icons on the receiver disappear and reappear as they pick up the audio stream again. This also happens on the YouTube and Netflix apps.

I've also recently narrowed it down to Bitstream audio from the TV (which I want for 5.1 Dolby Digital) as the PCM setting doesn't have this static pop issue. PCM is not an option, however, as is 2 ch and greys out the Dolby Digital option on the TV.


The sounds are coming from the L and R front speakers, not the center. I'm waiting for speaker stands coming in the tomorrow to set up the rears, and currently do not yet have a subwoofer.
They are connected via banana plugs where available and I took great care in doing the wiring correctly.

Below are the components:

TV: Samsung KS8000
Receiver: Yamaha RX-V383 connected to TV via ARC
Speakers: Micca MB42X and matching center

Research on the web shows this might be normal behavior, which is concerning. A thread here shows someone had nearly the same issue but no resolution, sadly:

http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=198898


Thanks for your consideration!

Yamaha RX-V383 with Pioneer 6ohm satellites?

Hello All,

I'm a HT noob replacing a long dead Bose Lifestyle 25 system and considering the following 5.1 HT setup:

Receiver: Yamaha RX-V383 for $280
Center: Pioneer SP-C22 Andrew Jones for $80
Satellites: Four Pioneer SP-BS22-LR Andrew Jones for $200
Sub: BIC America F12 12-Inch for $212
Wire: 14ga

This receiver's maximum effective output is 145 W (6 ohms, 10% THD), and I'm concerned that these Pioneers might push it too hard / toward an unacceptable THD.

My Amazon cart just passed $800, so perhaps there are better options I should be considering at/below that wife-imposed total budget?

Much thanks,

Nick

Hello Again,

It appears that the moderators moved my original post from another thread to this one... *crickets*.

Ken at Yamaha Customer Support replied that " those speakers will be fine with that receiver and you should not have any issues."

Is anyone willing to second that opinion?

Also, if there are better options I should be considering please let me know before I pull the trigger.

Nick

Official Yamaha RX-V*83 Owners Thread

The moderators merged your post to reduce forum clutter and put your post in a more appropriate topic.

The AVR will be able to power most commercial speakers just fine. If you are concerned that you have a larger room than those speakers can fill, then you need to up the budget. Turning the AVR "to 11" is no solution.

The TSR-5830 has landed at Costco, item number 1205830! With a $40 rebate through 9/17/17.

This is technically the RX-V583, and possibly similar to the HTR-5071 (they share the same Quick Start guide; see post #1).

Does the Costco model come with Dolby Vision pass thru already installed or will it require an update?
Does it have a pass thru function were I can just turn on the TV and my DirecTV box and have the audio pass to the receiver into the TV without turning on the receiver?

So I upgraded from an RX-V679 to a RX-V683 w/ my 7.1.2 and setup with YPAO with test tone outputting from all speakers. Now when I'm out of test tone I can only get sur decode neo6: to use the SBL/SBR but then wont use my FPL/FPR's my true 7.1.2 at all, in any other surround mode even with auto or standard music test on 7ch I never get my SBL/SBR to turn on anyone have any ideas what could be wrong? My older receiver with just 7.1 I never had any issues like this and I've disabled my atmos ones to see if I could get just 7.1 and no love.

C, L, R, FPL, FPR, SL, SR, SW always show up on the display but never SBL/SBR only in test tone.

683 is a 7.2 ch receiver. You need a 9.2 channel.

You currently can only do 7.1 or 5.1.2, but not 7.1.2, which requires 9 channels.

Does any body know if it's okay I connect the 3ohm speakers from my old Blu ray 5.1 unit to my V683?

Really, 3ohm? Might be problematic. Generally, speakers from a HTiB (check the forum FAQs if you don't understand the acronym) don't work well with conventional HT/hi-fi components. Time to shop for "real speakers."

Reason why I'm asking is because I saw a setting somewhere that allows me to set the minimum speaker load to 6. And the manual says with 6ohms, I could even use 4ohm speakers! So my 3ohm are only 1 off

Fine, I'll throw 'em away thennnnnnn.

Thanks ChromeJob.

Hey, on Amazon all of the 2017 Yamahas are listed as being DV ready on their spec sheet? (I'm in the market for a new receiver that supports HDR10 and DV) But you're saying that they're not ready out of the box and they need a firmware update?

Best regards,
Max

That's exactly what I'm saying. Apparently some of the Denons just had their DV firmware update so I am hoping ours will be soon.

And you think maybe it varies depending on the batch? I ask because I asked on Amazon and three different owners replied and confirmed that "they do in fact come DV-ready out of the box."

Thanks for the heads up anyhow, I'm looking into it now because I have it my cart and I'm looking to buy one this W/E. +1

But I dont want to deal with firmware updates, especially given how we're officially in fall of 2017 as of today.
