Yes. And there’s like 2” of space between his LCR. Might as well use a soundbar. I’ve decided to just ignore him. Nothing but inexperienced marketing regurgitation. I’ve used\/owned every brand of AVR and reading his drivel is time I can’t retrieve. Love how he knows more than people here with 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 or more years of experience. Can’t even place his fukkin top of the line elac speakers right. And I’m SURE he used “direct” mode to compare.\nLove the videos too...really highlights how great.....my iPhone sounds. And he calls people trolls waiting to jump on him. Lmao. He’s the one waiting for a denon\/yamaha\/Onkyo thread to pop up. The only reason I even said anything the first time was because there was no objective basis for beating the yamaha drum. Don’t even care if he’d simply state what he prefers but the endless trails of nonsense about BRANDS is ridiculous. Couldn’t possibly use some humility and say, huh, maybe I had a setting turned on\/off, or whatever. Still haven’t seen any data, like measurements to correlate his nonsense. Oh yeah, measurements are useless. Forgot.\n\nDONE.....\n\nI know ADTG loves his new yamaha stuff. I’ll never take that away from him, although I will definitely rib him a little. Lol but he’s also quick to say that sound quality is NOT one of the reasons he likes them. And his gear all costs multitudes of the 2300 and 1080 and elacs combined. Pretty sure he’d notice a difference.\nAt least we have some cannon fodder.\n\nOle Andrew huh? he sure does love his Yamaha gear! and all 15 RBH subs he has wish I had just One of his subs :(. ADTG really isn't Bias well to a point;). Andrew is a great guy he has helped many save money on gear. The only reason I didn't go with Denons 3600 was cause I wanted to save 500 bucks so I could upgrade the rest of my surround speakers. Plus he made me a deal I couldn't refuse on my Yamaha RX-V6A. So far all's good no issues with it. But if I wanted to build a setup a really good setup Denons 3600 hands down would've been the better AVR to go with. Even at 899 on Amazon its still the best deal to be had.
