Summary: didn"t come w/ a remote control, bummer,can not use all options on unit,also came in amake shift card board box ,one of the back feet was broke off,unit looks great ,other than what is wrote above,,,
Summary: This receiver has a lot of listening options. They are very clear and you will not be disapointed. It does not blow you away with watts but if thats your thing then get a more powerful receiver and buy yourself stock in Beltone. You,ll need it!
Summary: The reciever is good quality for the price. The shipping method the seller chose to use was not efficient. Rather than shipping UPS, it came parcel post. Not only did it take 12 days to receive the product, but the box was torn. Product was undamaged.
Summary: THis is an older receiver but it's performance and sound are outstanding through Cerwin Vega Bookshelf Speakers. The THD or total Harmonic Distortion is .06% with a total of 75 watts / channel @ 8 ohms.
Summary: I was absolutely amazed at the difference a receiver can make in the quality of your sound. I had a Sony, Dolby Digital, receiver for about 3 years. Some friends had bought Onkyo receivers that put mine to shame (TX-SR600 & TX-SR800).
Summary: I agree with other reviewers that the Yamaha HTR-5560 sounds good for the money. The remote is a piece of junk and the overall unit is not the easiest to operate. But, the ABSOLUTE DO NOT BUY warnning is the total absence of support from Yamaha on their home audio products.
Summary: The amp section on this receiver is not as musical as I'd like. In fact, I use the preouts to channel the stereo left and rights to my older Onkyo that has a much better amp. The soundfields and digital separation are top notch though, and for strictly home theater you would be fine.
Pros: Good for home theater, but for music the highs are not as realistic.
Cons: Good for home theater, but for music the highs are not as realistic.
Summary: This Yamaha receiver is a great mid-priced option for those who don't want to spend a fortune and yet are too descriminating for a boxed 'set.' Sound quality is clear and smooth, perfect for a mid-sized room.
