However, two of the five HDMI input ports went out within three years... I had still been so impressed that I again purchased Yamaha - the RX-A880... the extra HDMI ports and all ports supporting HDCP 2.2 would be a good thing in my entertainment system...
The first disappointment was the drop in power... to hit around the same price point as the previous receive we had to drop 50W of output power and were now buying in the "mid range" of the Yamaha line. This drop was more noticeable than I expected and the pricing removed a lot of the "bang for your buck". That alone would be reason enough to consider other brands.
But the real disappointment came with the features. All of the applications which had so impressed me with the previous model (pandora etc...) had moved from independent embedded apps on the receiver to "MusicCast" where basically an external device runs the app and the receiver is just a way of getting the sound to the speakers. To make it worse the apps only work with IPads and phones - not even with windows tablets or pcs... This transformed the device in our cabinet to where it s basically nothing more than a switch... Basically every serious device you would hook to the AV receiver has sufficient ability that in our system the receiver is always set to "Straight" - meaning there is no audible "enhancement" used... without the added features it is nothing more than a power amp (underwhelming for cost) and a video switch.
That said there are a couple of nice things about the receiver. Setup is still very simple but also gives you access to a lot of settings that make the device an excellent switch.
I have owned the Yamaha RX-A880 and the Denon X3500H for about 5 months now. I have uncovered some big differences that makes the RX-A880 by far the better receiver just in terms of technology and user personalization ability. I would even argue the YPAO version of the 880 works better for either of my speaker set ups (Klipsch and Elac) than Audyssey XT32 from the Denon.
If the competition between these two models were considered unfair because the Yamaha is a 2019 and the Denon 2018, it might be a fair argument to make. The amount of features added to the Yamaha is outstanding relative to the almost exactly priced model from Denon. Now, the prices are fair bit different, with the Yamaha running $900 and the Denon typically going for around $550. But I paid $600 for the Yamaha and $550 for the Denon. The Yamaha was a much greater value.
The key difference is DSP, which translates to just better overall sound experience. The 880 has a DSP correction built in. It can choose which bands, from probably around 50 or more spots in the Frequency Range. The Denon has pre-set which bands the user can equalize. The Yamaha also has Q and on-screen shows you how the Q adjustments are either tightening up the adjusted band or making the curve more elongated. The Denon does not give you this controllability. So, what I am saying is: the Yamaha has what I would consider easily a $300 tech feature built-in that is going to make a world of difference between these 2 top notch receivers.
Real quick let me say where this makes a difference in my Elac system. The Yamaha can get bass out of the Elac UB5, but it does so by adjusting the bands in the lower bass and the upper bass around 80hz. Where my Elac sit, near a wall in my bedroom, requires to get an even bass out of the Elac, they need to have extra attention given to how the bass frequencies are adjusted. The Yamaha does this flawlessly. The Denon just crosses them over at 150hz and send all the bass to my sub. Both ways work fine, but I personally enjoy the way the Elac perform bass. They sound like the bass is "rolling" in the speaker itself. This always impressed me about the UB5. With the Denon my Elac still sound excellent, but no more do I have that interesting personality from the UB5's bass feeling alive.
Another huge feature that I notice from the Yamaha is a tech that eliminates echoes. I would have expected Audyssey XT32 to be the king of room correction but I was wrong. The 880's echo / reflection elimination tech works amazingly well. The Denon well, it didn't eliminate echoing. Bass was the most noticeable problem with my Klipsch RP280F. The Yamaha smooths the bass out, the Denon just puts out bloated bass. I never really could get the Denon to do what I wanted it to do with the Klipsch.
Yamaha allows you to run YPAO and then go in and make changes wherever, however you want to flat or "natural" sound. You can adjust each speaker individually, and you have a lot more controllability as I said earlier (adjust Q, band, etc.) Denon only lets you copy over flat and control all speakers together as 1 or just the front 2. Big big difference.
Overall sound of the Yamaha is smooth and natural. The Denon is much more lively and exciting. Both have clear sound but to my taste I prefer the smoothness of the Yamaha. The Denon is too in your face for me. The Denon sounds fine with the Elac, but I would not at all recommend it with the Klipsch - the 2 are too natured alike and end up being unenjoyable and rough listening to. The Yamaha make the Elacs sound a bit dead and dull if I am honest. Most of the time, it was enjoyable and the Yamaha gave greater musical depth to the recordings that got along well with the pairing but too often it was pretty unexciting. Arguably, the Denon could be said to do some things better with the Elac at the expense of nailing the bass the UB5 has to offer. Also, for whatever reason, the Denon always says the Elac are phased improperly but they are connected properly. I bypass the warning and everything seems to be fine, it's just strange.
The Yamaha are absolute perfection with the Klipsch RP horn speakers. The sound is big and spacious. The bass lively and vivacious, and oh so controlled, powerful and articulated. The biggest issue if you consider it one, is the Klipsch aren't the last word in resolution - they don't sound like a studio monitor - they sound like a big live dramatic theatrical show. It has taken me 5 months to get here, but I have come around to really enjoying these monster Klipsch speakers and I can now see what everyone who raves about the Klipsch is raving about. Get the Yamaha for the Klipsch no question.
Last, there is not going to be a time I recommend the Denon X3500H over the Yamaha RX-A880. I am going to recommend the Yamaha every time because the features are high-tech, think a miniDSP built-in that Yamaha knows how to implement to perfection, or near perfection. The Denon cannot really compete but it does an adequate job with the Elac but if you use the Denon you may lose the bass from your UB5 which is a bummer.
I do have a few complaints that prevent me from giving 5 stars: I wish it let you define meaningful descriptions for the inputs which are displayed on-screen while switching sources. It is often hard to find the source you want. Second, they need to do a better job on documentation. It is very important to tell the system your speaker layout. That needs to be in bold and clearly described. Last, when switching sources, it takes longer to sync up than I would expect. I would like instance sync/display when switching between sources.
I would give 4.5 stars if I could. It's almost perfect.

Yamaha RXA-880 is a very very good AVR, in a reasonable price. Not only RXA-880 all Yamaha AVRs are the BEST receivers in their Features, Sound and Customizations.
But comming to the REMOTE, from RXV-685 up to its high end AVRs the construction of REMOTE is VERY worst. The max time its shape is ONLY 4 months later the Rubber mat is getting STRETCHED at the external device control keys and getting swollen, gummy and finally peeling off.
If we want to use the AVR for 10 years we should buy 30 REMOTES 30X2000=Rs.60000 the Receiver is Rs. 90000 and its REMOTES are Rs. 60000.
