I’m interested in the Yamaha RXA 3080 AVR receiver. However, when does Yamaha generally release new models?

Usually Nov and Dec if they release them.

Think they were waiting until 2020 to replace the 2018 models. It’s not clear yet if a 2 year cycle will be the new norm or if this is a one time thing.

On my wish-list is for Yamaha to add pre-outs for the left and right channels on their slimline avr like Marantz has on theirs. I doubt it will happen but one can hope....

Update from my Yamaha rep:

Yamaha won't release new models until 2020. The latest HDMI chip isn’t available yet so Yamaha is going to wait for it.

For 2020, Yamaha will change over their entire AVR lineup...
However due to crucial ICs delivery schedule, solidifying NEW standards and validation requirements availability will be mid-3rd quarter...
The higher end AVRs will be displayed/demoed @ WCES 2020 in their Dealer-Invite-Only suite @ the Venetian.

Just my $0.02... ;)

Cool. I’m curious what changes they are making.

For my situation and budget, I wouldn’t purchase unless there are new features and would wait until the following year’s models are out so I could buy at deep discount. My 2016 RXA2060 still has a ton of life left in it. :)

Just got word from my Yamaha rep that the new Yamaha models should be available around Oct/Nov this year 2020.

Wow, looks like current models RX-1080, 2080, 3080 are backordered. Yamaha rep says no end-date available.

Guess they might be just working on production for these 2020 models.
