Crystal clear sound - Hard to get serviced but only needs it if abused

  • Summary: the quality is superior. THE MOST RELIABLE OUT OF ALL OF THE RECEIVERS. THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE SELF-EXPLANATORY. THE SOUND QUALITY IS EXCELLENT. I ALWAYS WANTED A YAMAHA BUT COULD NOT AFFORD ONE. I GENERALLY BOUGHT PIONEER. INITIALLY IS WAS SKEPTICAL OF BUYING A USED ITEM. THIS WAS THE BEST INVESTMENT I MADE IN 2010. FOR 81.00 YOU CANNOT BEAT IT.

from bose to yamaha

Amazon
3 February 2004
  • Summary: I recently bought the Yamaha HTR-5640 and couldnt be happier about my switch. I have owned a Bose Lifestyles 8 Series II for about 2 years prior to the Yamaha. It will now be in my bed room as a secondary system. The problem with my Bose is not sound producton, it just is'nt prepared for the present or the future. I currently have my Yamaha strapped with a 6.1 Yamaha speaker package and notice a lot of different ranges of sound I wasnt hearing with my Bose.

Outstanding receiver!

Amazon
2 January 2004
  • Summary: I have had this unit for two weeks now and have to say it is the finest home theater receiver I have ever owned! Unlike some, this is my third receiver in 12 years and have gone thru all of the growing pains in surround sound from 4.0 to 5.1 ready to 6.1 now. Having purchased two Sony receivers previously, the first lasting 8 years and the most recent only 4, this is where I looked at first.

Excellent receiver with many options

Amazon

  • Summary: I got this receiver with the yht-440 home theater in a box system. This receiver is excellent for the money (especially if you buy it as part of the yht system already mentioned). It has plenty of inputs and plus, the most important part, DOLBY EX AND DTS ES CAPABILITY (6.1 channels)! This means an extra surround channel that adds tremendous depth to listening to music, movies or any other input source.

almost excelent, but

Amazon
15 December 2003
  • Summary: I bought this 8 days ago from a retailer. It has great, clean sound, the problem is it allows you to input only two digital sources. It is difficult to see the wisdom behind to come up with such a good product with such inconsistency. This is the digital age. Competitors whose products are even cheaper than this one allow you to connect five digital sources in a combination of optical and coaxial input jacks.

A solid Receiver - good for movies and music.

  • Excerpt: "Yamaha are well known for their 'natural' sound. Having owned previous Yamaha AV kit, I purchased this receiver and was very impressed with the sound - it's very clear and expansive. It is very good for both music and movies. It has onboard decoding for the latest compressed audio standards eg Dolby Digital Ex and DTS. It is easy to set up with clearly marked inputs. It can accept virtually every piece of AV kit you can think of. The speaker terminals ...
  • Pros: Great sound and all the compressed audio formats
  • Cons: No HDMI
