Summary: The receiver was bought to upgrade from an "all in one" Sony. This one does much better soundwise. It was hard to set up in order to have the Airplay functioning, but one trip to the website and I found the answer and now it works perfectly. The remote integrates perfectly with all my other products.
Summary: I purchased the HTR-4066 to upgrade an older generation, high-end system, that was professionally installed. The resulting combination of my installed speakers driven by the HTR-4066 is outstanding. The HTR-4066 provides a level of control to my system that didn't exist previously. Setup was straight forward with clearly written instructions. My exiting in-wall speaker system had two cables that had been mislabeled by the previously mentioned professionals.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Ive bought the YHT-499 set , which comes with the HTR4066 , for about 2 months ago . I dont have two left hands , so installing was a piece of cake ... , also calibration of the speakers was a job i could do with six fingers in my nose (Due to YPAO) I can be short .. the sound quality made me smile ! (Thanks for the cramps i had in my jaws due to smiling ... Yamaha ! ) Also the options it has (Network play , Airplay , Internetradio ) works like a dream ..
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: This is a nice receiver to use for all of my audio and video needs. The remote control allows you to custom configure the way the names of the sources relate to the input terminals on the back of the receiver. Once these are set up, most day to day functions can be selected and changed by the front panel controls. I use this receiver in a 20 foot X 20 foot room and it has more than enough power to satisfy my family and guests.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: The remote just does not work with the other units, although all units are new and state-of-the-art. You need to figure out the codes and my TV has 16 codes listed as possibles. Hooking it up to my Bose speakers was a snap. And the sound coming from each appears to be appropriate. I like the way Yamaha has a test for sound balancing that is simple to use. I guess I am not a fan.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Can Work With Bose, Good looking
Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Difficult To Set Up, Difficult To Understand, Limited Functions, Set-up Nightmare
Summary: I bought this after I saw a demo by salesman. It was great when it comes for music. But when I watch movie it's not so impressive. May be its due to the speaker package. Have not tried the blue ray movie yet.. But absolutely brilliant in terms of music lovers. You won't feeL tired in your ears when u are playing music for long hours.. Yamaha apps is absolutely easy and brilliant...
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality, Music Is Great, Yamaha App Controleasy An
Cons: Bass Is Not Effective, Movie Sound Not Impressiv
