Hi All,

I am very new to this domain. Recelty i have brought a Sony LED TV (42 W 700 B) . So i would like to have a HT. I have checked yht 299 and Onkyo 3700. I think YHT 299 is very cool to listen thn Onkyo. Can anyone help to buy a HT worth for money i spend.

Please suggest a good one

YHT 2910, Onkyo 3700 ? or Is there any good one with same range of money (35 - 40k)

Please help me
Thanks in advance :clapping:

If your budget is only around this amount then go for Onkyo 3700. It has high resolution playing capability and sounds better too.

I had a demo with yamaha package in Reliance digital. I was not happy with the performance and bass effect is not that good. It reaches the bass level in short and further we feel the distortion from it.

Yamaha YHT299 is a better choice... It has sub-woofer pre-out... So juz in case you want to upgrade speakers in future, this will be helpful...

Onkyo 3700 has passive sub-woofer model... So this will not allow you to upgrade your sub-woofer if you wish to change them....

Is it? I have not spiked about this thing...

For me yamaha doesnt sound good. Go to reliance store and have a demo there.

Or Just go for elangoas suggestion as it has sub preout.

Heating on Onkyo AVR's was in the past.. Newer models don't have such issue...

Blu ray player if u you have more discs (or) Media player if you have BD Rips from friends (or) downloaded content...

Optical/co-axial cable can't carry HD Audio... only HDMI can...

If your TV supports HDMI ARC function, then you can connect AVR HDMI out to TV's HDMI ARC in port... I dont think your TV can decode HD audio.. Sony TV are capable of decoding Dolby Digital.. May be newer one do Dolby True HD, but def no DTS decoding...

can any1 tell whats the total watts of yamaha 1910. in some shopping site it has given as 250watts.....please help here

Hope you are referring to YHT 2910.. If so, here are specs from Yamaha website..

5-channel powerful surround sound receiver
--- 100W per Channel (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9 % THD, 1 ch driven)
--- 70W per Channel (6 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.09 % THD, 2 ch driven)
--- 135W per Channel (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 10 % THD, 1 ch driven, JEITA)
Discrete amp configuration
HD Audio decoding with CINEMA DSP (17 DSP programmes)
4K Ultra HD pass-through for super high resolution images
HDMI (4 in / 1 out) with 4K Ultra HD pass-through for super high resolution images
YPAO sound optimisation for automatic speaker setup
Extra Bass enriches the powerful bass sound
Virtual CINEMA FRONT provides virtual surround sound with 5 speakers in front
Front panel USB Digital Connection for iPod / iPhone and USB thumbdrives
Stylish, curvy speaker design looks fresh in any interior
ECO mode operation for about 20% less power consumption

Yeah... As guys said if your TV has Audio Return Channel (ARC) then you dont need anything else. Sound will come through the same HDMI cable which is connected between TV and the receiver.

For bluray players,
Go for SONY BDP S1200 6500 INR without wifi and 3D
SONY BDP S4200 10000 INR which has everything you want.

If your budget is more than 15K then go for oppo.

YHT-299 supports all formats including DTS-HD MA and Dolby True HD.
YHT-196 will not decode DTS HD-MA and Dolby True HD.
