Summary: This receiver should be worth more for it's features and the quality it enjoys from being made by a reputable manufacturer. Set up is easy enough, just make sure you have the appropriate adapters for your specific speakers. The unit does not run hot and my TV stand does not have much ventilation.
Good product good service. I am very pleased and the vendor wasforthright and honest about all of the details good and bad.

Summary: The AV receiver was correctly represented and was exactly what I ordered. The vendor did not embellish or exaggerate and also made note of the scratch on the chassis. It was no problem as I was stacking so cosmetics was not a selling point for me. I would definitely buy again from this vendor.
Summary: This receiver is perfect for the normal home theatre system. It isn't complicated, but it has enough features to satisfy. I have some sound issues with some of my videos and when I turn up the volume, baby, this thing cranks!
Summary: Another reviewer commented on having a lemon system, I had the same problem, but managed to get it fixed very easily at a local service center. Now it works wonderfuly. As the other reviewers said, great sound, bad remote.
Summary: .....I will verify that most of what has been said here is dead-on. The sound/quality is absolutely amazing, but the remote/user interface is not designed well. That being said, if you have any patience to read the manual or a knack for understanding electronics, it really isn't that hard to put up...
Summary: I have been a sound technitian for 10 years now and I can tell you that for this value $97.00 THIS IS THE ONE TO GO FOR! The sound is great, crisp and clear, if you know about audio and frequencies you can change the freqs for each channel giving you the oportunity to customize it the way you wnt...
Summary: Purchased Yamaha HTR-5730 receiver from Amazon based on price and other user reviews. As expected, it is made in China. Right out of the box and connected, the volume control knob on my unit does not work - so much for manufacturer's quality control. Volume can be adjusted by remote control only.
Summary: I needed a new AV Receiver for a vacation home so I bought this one. Once fully connected and programmed I love the sound. The biggest problem is the user interface. Just configuring it is SO COMPLICATED to be almost not worth it.
