Now you need to return that Sony 950 and save some money, and get a much better tv. Go buy the tcl 8 series mini led. You’ll thank me, hdmi 2.1 is pointless anyway. Yamaha 3080 is hdmi 2.0b and so is all your other stuff. Hdmi 2.1 will change to hdmi 2.1a with a different hdcp to make everyone start over once again. Get the best tv you can afford right now. No such thing as future proofing in this hobby.\n\nAlso the Yamaha 3080 was a great choice. manual peq far exceeds denons capabilities. Also it’s more reliable and runs much cooler. Great choice on canton, I own 596.2, 556.2, 896.2, 866.2, 518, 515 and many in ceiling and in wall as well. Now don’t skimp on amps or subs. The canton love power and really need it for high spl. The 596.2 system almost made my denon 6700 burn to the ground, but denon run extremely hot.\n\n\nThanks Tim.\n\nI've owned Marantz, Denon, Onkyo (and Integra) and Yamaha over the years. I've always liked the Yamaha the best for some reason. I will say the Denon 4520ci that I briefly had probably did the best job of room correction, but the equivalent to that model I guess now is the 8500. Probably the closer comparison here is the Yamaha 3080 and the Denon 6500. But for the moment, if I don't start second guessing myself, I'm feeling pretty good about the Yamaha RX-A3080 choice. Got email saying it shipped today, so hopefully see it soon.\n\nI looked at that 8 series TCL but wasn't completely sold on it. They had one in the store on display but to buy one I'd have to order it. It looked good but I've read about some brightness issues and other things. As well, it doesn't support IOS based products for apple play. But the other thing I've read is that it's 2019 tech and TCL is about to replace it too. We have another cheaper model 55" 4k TCL being used as a main screen for my son's flight simulator and it works fine for that. The Sony is sitting in the box as I decided to wait on other items to show up before setting things up. That said, I'm not sure there is enough of a reason to drag the sony back to BB to exchange quite honestly. Maybe I'm wrong.\n\nOn the amp front I was looking at a parasound A23+ last night with regards to the front mains but really no clue what makes sense when I get to that point. I've tried B&K amps and receivers in the past and found them to be wonderful. I'm not sure they are still around these days. I'm thinking Parasound might be a nice amp choice these days but have more research to do.
