Summary: Nice remote, is capable of controlling other equipment, lots of buttons that takes getting use to. No complaints about the sound, lots of DSP programs to use, particularly like the Pro Logic II setting for movies, works great with a 2-channel source.
Summary: I had a hard time searching for a good home theather reciver, yuo know with some many brands of electronics. I came to my chose by reading reviews in the internet. Knowing what were the companies that made better home theathers. I found a quality reciver in the HTR-5560.
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: I purchased this receiver after not being satisfied with my ...Marantz digital receiver. A friend of mine bought a Yamaha receiver shortly after I purchased my Marantz receiver, and his Yamaha blew me away. My Marantz had a thudy sound when listening to CD's.
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: As a long time user of Yamaha and Sony products, the choice between the Yamaha HTR-5560 and the Sony STR-DE985 was not easy. Both have similar base functions, specs and price. The Sony has the "bells and whistles", where the Yamaha is known for their high quality of sound.

Summary: Normally I am loyal Sony customer. HDTV, DVD, VHS, Receiver, etc.. I recently upgraded my Sony to 5.1 digital and decided I really wanted 6.1. So the store where I made my purchase allowed me to return it. I almost bought a 6.1 Kenwood THX cartified and the salesman told me it was better than Sony.
