lack of loudness control. I listen to music at low volumes. Have always used loudness control on previous receivers. can this receiver compensate somehow?

"Loudness" is nothing more than having both the bass and treble set a little higher than zero. If you turn up both bass and treble a tad, you really have the same thing. Having two knobs allows more control than a single button, so you haven't lost anything--you've gained the ability to customize it more.

I have a slightly older version 8211 which looks almost identical with the same specs and it has a selective tone control which is sort of like the loudness button. Does the 8255 have the selective tone control button ?

The Yamaha R-S500BL Natural Sound Stereo Receiver (Black) has a loudness control.

It has bass and treble control knobs, but no "loudness" control. You can provide some compensation by boosting both the bass and treble at low listening levels.
