I got it today for some reason I can't get audio from my Samsung UN65KS800D TV. I called Samsung and they checked my settings on my TV, they said it looked correct. The TV sees the receiver, and I can adjust the volume from it. I'm trying to use ARC, but even the optical doesn't work.
How about something like this in silver? We've had too much drab black the last 30 years!
I got excited for nothing. It's a US only drop. -__-
Do I need a monitor/display to configure this if I don't have a TV or sustainable WiFI/internet connection?
Darnit. This was $319 on woot Friday. Didn't pull the trigger then, but this may have the advantage of 1-year Yamaha warranty.
What is the difference between the 5830. I just bought that in last drop and thought I was buying this. :(
Does anyone know if this is 230V compatible?
Can anyone tell me whether this unit has a powered phono input?

GREAT......thank you for the info/clarification.

If you look at the pic of the back panel, you can see the phono input. This means that it has a built in preamp (if that's what you mean by 'powered'.
FWIW, I don't own this receiver but I've been eyeing it because it is, by far, the most affordable 4K HDR-capable receiver on the market that has preamp outputs for external amplification. I think you'd need to pay 2x as much or more for any other receiver with that capability.

Same reason I picked one up during the Newegg flash sale. I'm using it to power a 3.1 Elac Uni-Fi setup without any regrets. Pick one up!

That's good to know because I did end up joining the drop. Seems like this could be one of the last chances to easily get one of these since it was never sold new except at Costco and is now discontinued.
The Costco TSR-7810 is simply a Yamaha RX-V781 that has been renamed for Costco to avoid price-matching situations with other retailers. New units are selling for around US$567 on Amazon at the moment.

I bought my TSR-7810 from Costco a few years ago, and it's been great. Though it seems like Costco is no longer stocking Yamaha AV receivers (or any AV receivers for that matter). At least, none are listed on their site currently.
If Yamaha updates their receivers for AirPlay 2, I'll probably buy another one for my living room (current one is the basement). If not, I'll likely look to a Denon.
Not to be rude, but Woot has this for $329.99. I've never had a problem with reconditioned electronics, but I'd rather not pay more than I have to given there is still some small risk.
100V or 220V ?
uhh yeah just give me a couple weeks to get some funds together and... its gone.
Dammit I bought the TSR-5830 on Sunday. Would have rather spent the extra 100$ for this one.

I dont know why they do this stupid stuff.. They put 5 inputs but only 3 are HDCP 2.2 complaint.. Why not just make them all complaint.. Idiots.. I had to go with a lower end Onkyo because there higher end is the same issue yet there lower end Atmos in a box all inputs are HDCP 2. complaint understand that..
Hey guys I've been having issues with this receiver so I'm wondering if anyone is in the same boat as me. First, let me explain my setup.
Source: Apple TV 4K Reciever: Yamaha TSR 7810 TV: Sony XBR65X900E Cables: 48Gbps Belkin Ultra High Speed HDMI Apple TV is connected to Receiver's HDMI input 1Reciever's HDMI Output 1 is connected to TV's HDMI 3 input
My problem is as follows: I am unable to see 4K HDR 60Hz video from the Apple TV to my TV through the Receiver. 4K HDR 60Hz 4:4:4 works just fine when the Apple TV is connected directly to the TV, using both 18Gbps and the new Belkin 48Gbps cables I just picked up from apple.
Both the Receiver and Apple TV have been updated to their latest Firmware and tvOS The Receiver is in Mode: 1 and using "Processing -> Through" in the video settings as these are two things I have read to check while researching this issue.
I would love any help I can get with resolving this issue.

Connect hdmi receiver output 1 to TV hdmi input 1. These are the highest quality input and output channels on both devices by default. Should show at best resolution and refresh rate available on the TV using this combination.
Pookha
Actually, I think it's supposed to be output 2 on the receiver for 4:4:4 60fps 4k passthrough.
So the unit just arrived and I'm unable to get it to pass 4K 60 Hz HDR video to my TV from my Apple TV 4K. It will pass 4K 60Hz SDR and 1080p 60Hz HDR. For some added info the apple TV strait into my TV plays 4K 60Hz HDR just fine, so it's not a cable issue as I'm using the exact same cables between all sources. Does anyone else have this working in 4K 60Hz HDR? I'm open to any suggestions.
Pookha
Change 4K mode using advanced settings. Check manual for how to access You have to hold a button while turning the power on. You can also update the firmware over the network this way. Once mode is changed 4K HDR works with the right cables.
Pookha
It often seems like HDR at 60hz in 4k seems only possible through a display port. I dont think HDMI can carry the bandwidth. It's all very confusing and I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that through HDMI only 30hz HDR 4k is possible. My experience is using a PS4 Pro with a LG C7P... Maybe other devices like the Apple TV will do it though.
I purchased this as I’m building a Man Cave and my Harmon Kardon 7.1 will not pass 4K to my new Vizio E-series TV. I also bought a new 4K Atmos Blu-Ray. I have much to learn about all the new technology. I installed 7 Polk Audio in wall speakers and ran 2 SW LFE cables to 2 different wall plate locations. Can’t wait to watch my first action movie.

I thought I did pretty good with the Vizio M75-E1 4K XLED model. My budget was 1.5k and everything connected is 4K with the 4K hdmi cables. I am pretty pleased With the results. Which TV would you have bought? Thanks.
Obiwan
I am super late to this- but wanted to let you know (in case there was a touch of doubt in the back of your mind) that your tv is the M series and not an E series. The E series is significantly lower quality. Vizios models are a bit confusing, but the first letter in the model number denotes the product range, with P being the best, and D being the worst. Your M is a great tv. =)
Well I just pulled the trigger with one day left. I'm getting this to replace my current RX-V377. I recently purchased a SONY XBR65X900E for my first 4K TV and I'm having issues sending 4K HDR 60Hz from my apple TV 4k through the receiver. 4K 60Hz, and 4K HDR 30Hz both work fine. So I hope I made the right move in this purchase.
As a side note I'd love a recommendation on some speakers to run off of this receiver. I'm currently using the speakers included with the receiver in this set "YAMAHA YHT-4910U", but I plan to move those to the bedroom with my current receiver.
Pookha
If you‘re on a budget but still like quality, you can check the Polk Signature series or the Q Acoustics speakers, both are very good.
Anyone know if it has 220V switch ? Or universal input ?
I have this specific model. had a pioneer sc1222k as well as an entry level onkyo and denon. since upgrading the tv, I decided to try it due to 4k and atmos features and dolby neural x. I paid a bit over 100$ more than this drops price, but am super happy with it. I also tried the pioneer lx-501 bought from online, as the only thing that I was not satisfied with was Pure Direct amplification to the main speakers (KEF LS50) through the TSR-7810. the pioneer before that did a great job, as these speakers go down as low as 3.2 ohm. The yamaha sounds good still but just did not have enough power to drive the Kefs in pure direct. however dolby neural x sounds incredible even with music, as well as movies. the pioneer LX501 sounded like a good competitor as it was under 500$, but MCACC was terrible on the 501, completely unlike the old SC-1222K. I could not tune the bass correctly no matter what I tried with the LX501 (mains set to small, or large, and bass extention turned on or off). on the other hand this yamaha is incredible in its ease of use and room correction/calibration YPAO. I ended up getting an external amp for the KEFs which sounds even better than the old SC1222K. to top it off, I really like that the yamaha is not as tall as the pioneers, if space is an issue in your entertainment cabinet. so with a subwoofer, for movies this receiver is superb, it compares in specs to the Yamaha RX-A870, and will probably do very well with efficient 8 ohm speakers. highly recommend!
Can I get dolby atmos from a regular HDTV. Better question is Do you get dolby atmos with any tv ,this reciver and the set up speakers 5.1.2
Cuchyto
No, most televisions will not pass through Atmos. You will need to hook up a video source that supports Dolby Atmos directly to the receiver.
bigsnyder
Note, @Cuchyto that as @bigsnyder said it's not NONE, but MOST. (I only know because my 2017 LG OLED is one of the exceptions to the general rule, and apparently sends Atmos back out over the HDMI Audio Return Channel. (I say "apparently" because savvy people like Rtings.com say so... my 2.0.2 makeshift Atmos speaker setup isn't the best to confirm)
So it CAN be done, for the right homework and the right price.
will this ship to Maui, Hawaii? The last drop i joined for this ended up being refunded because it couldn't be shipped to Hawaii, even though it did not say anywhere on the drop that it wouldn't ship to Hawaii like drops on large TV's stated. This drop again doesn't say anything about not shipping to Hawaii... would love to get this!
Will this one ship to Maui, Hawaii????

Anyone know the return policy on these. I *just* bought a Sony str-dn1080 which I can't return. I was thinking about getting this and keeping whichever I like better :) The preamp outputs and tidal support seem like real value adds for me.
The other question I had was sacd support over hdmi. The blurb on Yamaha's site only gives one line on dsd support, but it also says all channels have 24/192 burr brown DACs, which makes me think dsd support is transcoding, not native. Anyone know if dsd support is native or transcoding?
jrubins
Decided to go for it, so we'll see how it goes :)
Was this cheaper last drop?
Any plans for a 9.2 AVR? This actually is a fairly powerful AVR for the price, but as I already have 7.2, looking to make full use of surround sound and seeking 9.2 AVR.
I have a novice quesion here... Can this play music from an ipod or iphone through the USB without using the bluetooth feature? Does someone have a good link to more of the features?
Loveit001
Yes it will do this!
Does this have line level out so that I can send the audio to individual amps?

It does help. The use case is basically for doing matched volume without having a massively expensive processor that can handle discrete bi-amping on top of 7.2.
An edge case, for sure.
PigmonkeY
@PigmonkeY 1) Zone 2 can be used as line level output at full/unity gain. This would require a separate pre-amplifier or integrated amplifier to attenuate the volume. 2) The Pre-outs can technically be at full/unity gain if you increase the volume to 0dB 3) In your use-case, you could still use the pre-outs and volume match the amp's gain down to the receiver's level using it's white noise signal during audio setup. I did the same by using my center channel that's hooked up to my receiver and matched my left and right channel gain on my external amp to the same volume. This should theoretically have the same volume change across them as you increase/decrease volume on your receiver. 4) If you're using an external amp, you really don't need to bi-amp unless you're looking to put the amp in bridge mode for more power, even in this case you wouldn't use a line-level without a pre-amp/integrated amp.
Says estimated ship date is the 11th but UPS sent me an email saying I have a package coming tomorrow. That was very fast. Can't wait to get this hooked up.

This sounds sooo much better than my 6 year old sony receiver I had I still have to figure out how to control it with my phone lol
Phriar
Mine's certainly sounding better than my newish LG B7A TV was by itself for sure... added receiver plus a pair of C Note speakers ( https://www.parts-express.com/c-note-mt-bookshelf-speaker-kit-pair-with-knock-down-cabinets--300-7140 ) plus a couple speakers sitting on top of those that I'm experimenting with Atmos / DSP effects. Next will be a center channel and maybe a sub :)
I have an android phone and I've been using the app called "AV controller" (search the play store for Yamaha, then pick that one) as a remote, definitely handier than using the dedicated remote in situations where the on-screen menus aren't going to be visible (in TV-based streaming apps when the audio is coming back over ARC for example).
uses Burr-Brown DAC
wish it was AVENTAGE model....
HwoALanG
I believe this is the same as the RX-A870 model aventage without a 5th foot and cosmetic changes. The only aventage models worth getting are the higher model lines such as the RX-A1070 and higher.
