Details

The Yamaha RX-A840 is a good amp. Please don't get us wrong. If you want it then we'd say you'll be a very happy customer. However, we do think that it's at an odd position in comparison to the rest of Yamaha's range and therefore isn't necessarily the best choice.

The reason for this is that the RX-V777 is effectivey the same machine in a different chassis. It's part of the RX-V range so only comes with a 1 year warranty instead of the Aventage range's 3 year warranty, but shares the same essential components such as the DSP and audio sections. As such the only improvements on sound quality come with the sturdier chassis. Yes, it does make a difference, but not one that is necessarily commensurate with the large price difference.

For a very small amount more you could instead move to the RX-A1040 which DOES have improvements on sound and features over this unit, and also has the larger style chassis seen on the rest of the Aventage range. We think this therefore offers a better choice if you do indeed wish to move to the Aventage range.

Of course, if your heart is set on the RX-A840 then you are still going to get a high quality unit, but we think it's worth considering all the options before jumping in. You can always speak to our experts who will be able to guide you in buiding your perfect cinema system.
