To Lousey with vinyl

Nick Allen Seigmund "Nick S", Amazon

  • Summary: Many systems now days do not include a phono jack for record players. And even when they do sometimes the power and sound quality is very weak. I solved this problem by buying a mixer with a built in Equalizer and also a stand alone EQ to boost the power. I hook the mixer to the receiver through the CD input to the mixer's amp output, and then the EQ to the mixer's rec out through the EQs main input. You don't necessarily need a separate EQ as the mixer should suffice.

Solid performing amplifier w/ lots of sound field options!

  • Summary: Quite honestly I purchased THIS unit for the remote. I already own the same one as well as a lower model from the same product line -- so obviously I really like this product line. In this case I managed to acquire a fully functioning 'spare' receiver w/ remote for the same cost as a replacement remote. Great score in my opinion!

How Do You Spell Yes!!

  • Summary: Over the years I have had many receivers and amps some I thought were great at the time but there was something that I wished they would have or do to enhance a sound I wanted. This is the first that to date gives me whatever the sound is I'm looking for, so all I can't say is at last YESSSS!!!

Yamaha HTR

swooshperson, Ebay

  • Summary: Wow! Over 20% of electronics fail, but this certainly has not. Even being a used product, the power and presitge of such a product exist. Great sound can be blasted from this HTR, and simply have no complaints.

Great system for the money!

Jan Stuart, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased this almost two years ago. Once you manage to get this thing properly wired, it really is a great receiver, and there are many options to select from, once you get the hang of it... one plus side to the wiring, someone broke in our home a few months ago and when we came home, the receiver was halfway unplugged. The would-be robber must have started unwiring and given up. Hah!

A super receiver,with excellent sound and high power.

stewart L, Amazon
15 November 2005
  • Summary: This receiver is an excellent choice as the center piece of your home theater experience.the amplifer section features high current high power low impedence drive.The unit sports a 4 ohm switch,which helps in driving difficult speaker loads,or mutiple speaker connections...the yamaha delivers real world power into difficult loads.Many receivers such as sony, wimp out because of current limiting protection circuits,that are built into most recivers.I use this as my second...

Great item!

Laduke, Amazon
16 March 2005
  • Summary: I purchased this item so I could run a powered sub (my old sony didn't have the option.). Now i thought with my sony I had some pretty decent sound...I was wrong. this thing blows it out of the water. the sony I had boasted 80 watts per channel (I believe this one has the same wattage,seems more like 100 watts per channel though)) but maybe there was something wrong with it because my Yamaha is five times louder than the sony ever was + I don't have to turn the volume...

lousy with vinyl

John deTar, Amazon
10 February 2005
  • Summary: I tried this unit as a replacement for a 10-year old Sony. There are no true jacks for a turntable, resulting in use of one of the other jacks. I tried every jack on the unit, but the unit could not provide adequate volume--at the absolute maximum volume setting, it barely filled a 20X15 room. With a CD, volume was not a problem. Other than that factor, which has caused me to return the item, this is a great receiver.
