Falls a bit short

DENNIS CHIMELIS, Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: I should start by saying that this unit may be more than enough for many people. The size of your typical Blu-ray player, it eliminates the need of having to purchase additional components since it's a Blu-ray player and receiver all in one (and it's even 3D ready). It's a space saver and potentially a money saver as well depending on your circumstances. All that said, it falls way short as a receiver.

Perfect for anyone

Gravy Playa, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for my mom for her birthday. I'm happy to say this is so easy to use that she has not called me asking how to use it. She loves it. You will too. Having the receiver and the internet connected blu-ray player in the same device is perfect and it saves space under the TV.

A good Bluray player - a so-so receiver

Gary, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: The BRX610 is a good bluray player, with some advanced functions including "SMART" functions (youtube/Netflix),/ DLNA media playback, ipod support and quality audio output in a compact set. However, I was disappointed because of the lack of two functions I expected, even in an entry level "receiver": 1. No HDMI input. (It does have one digital optical input.) 2.

Netflix um not quite

Angelic A Jett, Amazon
19 August 2012
  • Summary: So I bought this through woot for a great price because I wanted to upgrade to Bluray without having to buy a unit with a bunch of speakers that I don't need. Pros: great picture and easy setup. Mp4 support is nice and will play right off a thumb drive. IPod support is cool with stop, pause, forward and reverse and play. It is also a small form factor so it fits in small spaces. Cons: Netflix migh as well not be installed.

Swiss Army Knife Missing an Important Feature

Eric Scott Taylor, IV, Amazon
10 July 2012
  • Summary: I've owned Yamaha for years and this was a bit of a bit of a dissapointment: 1) the unit does not have slow motion only a pause button. So if you wanted to advance frame by frame or slow, forget it (Yamaha support said it was not a feature); and 2) powering it on is confusing because it blinks "Powering on" half a dozen times and then goes out and looks for devices like a memory stick or an iPod...talk about Microsoft Vista-Like!.
