Summary: Seller claimed product was "Like New, only used a few weekends" I have the exact same reciever which is why I wanted another one..... electronics of this type are often changed slightly by the vendor annually. This particular model is about 2005-2006....
Summary: This is where science meets art. Versatile, powerful and solid. Yamaha makes wonderful products. I love the way you could output the individual channels to outboard amps in addition to the built in channels.

Summary: This replaced a pioneer vsx-d411 5.1 channel receiver that had been the life of my home theater for three years; and ya' know it worked good, it gave me a start in H\T, but, I wanted something better, so I looked around a bit and it was ether this, or a Harman/Kardon 5.1, and (don't buy audio...
