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. That is an outstanding performance level and the 75 watts can get you an eviction notice, no problem. If you want an outstanding performance from a home theatre set up on the cheap go for this Yamaha HTR 5560. You'll be amazed at the sound.
Summary: I have had it with consumer malipulation! I have Yamaha's HTR-5560 receiver and it is a nice one but my Sony DVD just crapped out on me and I bought a Yamaha DV-S5950 as a replacement. Clue, the DVD player's ONLY digital audio output is component (RCS plug), the Yamaha's ONLY component digital audio input is assigned to the CD component - the rest, including DVD is optical. What the %$#@!
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. With not too much money to buy, I Found my self amaze by the clarity of the sound, especialy with my non expensive speakers.
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). I thought it was the DTS decoding, which my receiver didn't have, or the larger speakers. I only have bookshelf speakers, Bose 201s and VCS-10 in the front and 161s and VCS-10 in the back. Now movies at my house put theirs to shame.
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. But I still was unsure when I inquired about the Yamaha. He said although it wasn't THX certified it blows away Sony and Kenwood. He was absolutely correct.
