Still going strong 13 yrs later

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 May 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this surround sound as a college graduation gift to myself back in 2001...its 2014 and its still going strong!! Being a recent college grad at the time, I couldn't afford top of the line, but at the time, this was considered "middle ground" and I was very impressed with the quality then...

Great Bang for the buck

Kevin Warren, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this in 2002 for $300.00, really wanted a higher model but cash was tight at the time. This is my second Yamaha receiver, and I think it's safe to say I'm a Yamaha Lifer. I also have a Yamaha DVD player which is awesome, plays all digital formats except .MKV.

Great Receiver

  • Summary: Crisp, clear, accurate sound. The only real weakness I think this thing has, is only one optical input. Yamaha knows what they are doing. I would buy another without even thinking about it.

Quality Sound

Amazon
18 November 2002
  • Summary: Replaced my 100 Watt Kenwood Surround receiver with the Yamaha HTR-5540 receiver, and what a difference. The quality of the sound is incredible. This unit offers a optical input from my DVD player which really boosts power and quality. This unit has as much power as my 100 Watt Kenwood.

  • Summary: I wanted to replace my 2 year old Sony STR545 receiver for my home theater / stereo system and thought the price was good on the Yamaha 5540. I was stunned at how much of an improvement in sound quality and quantity the Yamaha made.

Excellent under $500 receiver

Amazon
13 September 2002
  • Summary: Brand new 2002 model. Clean, Crisp, sound. Just look at all the reviews of Yamaha receivers...most all of them are rated from 4.3 to 5.0. Impressive. This model is all of the above and more. Wanted the HTR 5560 but thought I don't really need all those "bells and whistles".
