Andrew, the most important thing is that they should also carry some sort of manufacturer's warranty, shouldn't they? :)

Cheers,
André
From Andrew to Andre: Warranty is nice. But it's always best not to even need them. :D

P.S. This morning I was talking to a very nice nurse. Her name is Andrea. :D

A Software Developer has to have an imagination. Most of the engineers I deal with are from NASA and Harris and Grumman and Rockwell no imaginations strictly by the book
From your reply I gather that you have not worked as a software developer, no offence intended.

A very important part of what I do as a software developer is to make software as bug-free as possible, within requirements from management as well as applicable regulations, while at the same time make it fit for purpose. I also have to think about maintenance of said code for years to come, how it will affect new projects and so forth. This have a tendency to make us a bit conservative, at least the competent ones.

All the engineers that I've dealt with always over-thinking stuff I got to analyze and analyze and analyze to make an educated decision I guess it's their way not saying it's right or wrong I think it's nuts I don't have that time
PhD chemists are worse. I am one sorry to say!

Andrew,@AcuDefTechGuy, ever since I said I would umm I may get a Denon seems like Andrew been smacking on me. :p:p Lol no but really what to get? Seems like it's a crap shoot these day's in the hopes of getting a AVR that works or last. Yamaha Denon Marantz are all good AVR's, After hearing DTS-X Neutral I gotta have it! If my ole Yamaha had it I wouldn't upgrade. I have till the refund hits my bank to decide.Denon's 3600 seems like a no brainer, but I really like the way Yamaha's sound hope Denon sounds as good as Yamaha's. The V6A I just sent back sounded better than my 7790 I just put back in my audio rack. Very detailed sounding AVR has better inner detail think umm background Instruments a little more prominent. If that means anything, and yep Andrew is right DTS-X is waaay better than any sound format I've heard to date.
I think I use NeuralX about 99% of the time.

I think buying a brand new Denon X3600 is probably fine. Need one or two 120mm USB fans since the Denon will get hot. $799 for 3 years isn't bad. Haha. :eek: ;) :D

I did my time, took my chances (like Eye of the Tiger :D) with Denon already. So it's just my time to move on and give Yamaha a fair try. :D

Well, I'll have one of each.

The Yammy 3080 in living room in the salamander cabinet. I have the expanded rear panel with two large thermostat controlled fans behind the 3080 with the temp probe sitting on it's top. It turns on after a few seconds of running based on where I have the temp setting (84 degrees) and runs for a while after I'm done to clear the remaining residual heat.

For the Denon 3600, I'll have it in the open in the garage. Still need a fan if nothing on top and not in a cabinet? Maybe 18" to 24" clearance above it. air conditioned room.

I still can't get pass the "Garage" part. :D

If I ever put anything in the garage, it would be a used AVR from Craigslist for $100. No, make that $50. :D

If it wasn't for the gym stuff, the golf cart and the work bench and tool box, it would make an awesome theater room since it's insulated with heat/AC. LOL

What about Pioneer? any word on what they got coming out? I use to have Pioneers back in the day Sony's also even Kentwood. I believe ole Doc may be right, we may be in the last day's of AVR's. It's been crickets on Onkyo's.

Yeah, I think most garages aren't quite home theater ready. So it just depends. Mine is just for cars. So I just can't picture putting any AVR in my garage. :D

Perhaps you should get a nicer garage to complement a nice AVR :p
Yeah, but I just prefer to spend time in my home theater, instead of garage. :D

Lie on my cushy comfy theater bed, put the blankets on, relax, turn off the lights, watch movies. :D

So by that comment, you'd stick with a new and cheaper RX-A780 versus the AVR-3600H for this room? The 780 would be $150 cheaper when comparing new to new (sale price). I could get the 780 new through BB for local support as well, but they don't have the 3600 discounted.
Depends on what you want to spend. $150 is different for different budgets. I also think we all want to feel like we got a good deal.

Yamaha and Denon are like Nissan and Toyota. Both are excellent brands.

Nissan is not an excellent brand
