Yamaha's RX-A2A vs RX-V6A
By - Wrestle4Ever
Both require board replacements and I wouldn't buy either.
I've been waiting for a few months, I'm not going to wait a few more for a feature I'm not going to use (don't play video games, especially not on consoles, and definitely not ones that'll benefit from 120Hz. 8K support is even more useless to me).
It's basically either the V6, A2 or X2700H.
what about something like a refurbished marantz?
Good call! I just recently got a sr5014 manufacturer refurbished from accessories4less for 609 +tax.
I believe the build quality on the RX-A series is supposed to be better than on the RX-V series amps.
