Summary: The HTR 5660 furthers the Yamaha reputation of delivering maximum value. With robust clean power to spare, and switching that is logical and well labled, even a fairly large living room can be transformed into an adventure theater or your favorite music venue.
Summary: This receiver must have spent a good deal of time on this product in 2 ways: 1) to make a very good stereo and 2) to make the worst remote and menu system ever devised. The other review spends time explaining the good features of the stereo, so I'll spend my time explaining what's wrong with the...
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: I was very impressed with this unit as I am not an audiophile but this is bringing me closer to being one. This is not one for the faint of heart of for those with no patience as it does take a bit of time and manual reading to set it up for your personal preferences.
Summary: The unit has good sound and works good but I dread even thinking about trying to set the settings on this thing. I have done it but they are very unintuitive. Also the remote has to be aimed so directly that I had to make the unit crooked on my shelf so that it points staight at where I sit.

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: I have this A/V receiver paired with JBL E30 front satellites, JBL E C35 center, JBL E N24AWII for surrounds and JBL E250P sub. This receiver is great! I use it 60% for listening to music (stereo) and 40% for a surround home theater system for movies.
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...
Summary: This receiver is 2nd to none for sound quaility and price...I have had Dennon and Kenwood receivers but none can compare!! For richness of sound and bass this is a great receiver..and if you have Bose speakers this is the way to go..in this other review the guy can't figure out the remote.
Summary: Most of what I have to say is covered in the other reviews, although I have to say that the reviewer who gave a 1 star rating just because of the remote was not doing this receiver any justice. Setup was quite nice and simple.
