Dosent have output controlled with the volume

xs650_bobber, Ebay
17 November 2012
  • Summary: I know it a old receiver, but it is a nice amp with a lot of features, nice sound good output and nice look, buttom is that this amp dosent have output controlled with the volume, that sucks when you want to install more amp to it. I resolve this using a pair of High to RCA converters, you must ground the negative of the RCA output of the converters connecting to the body of the receiver, doing that I have two amp connect to the receiver.

Its a Yamaha...amazing quality!

  • Summary: Had this product for over 2 years! It is a great reciever, well built and has great audio & video quality, truly deserving of a Yamaha name! The only missing part I had a problem with was that it was missing HDMI I/O ports (that is the reason why i took one star off in features attributes rating)! That probably wasn't that great a deal when this was built(wish they were a little more far sighted) but is defenitely a great deal in today's HD world!

Sounds Great!

  • Summary: I've bought many receivers in the range of 18 years for Kaoke systems, movies, and music. I mostly bought Sony products, but this one isn't bad. I've notice the sound they put out on my infinity speakers are better than from my sony receivers. Infinity tweeters are great, and sometimes too much power is not good. So I recommend this product to users who want to enjoy music in a softer manner and not wild with their subs.

Good for a basic surround sound.

  • Summary: This unit is a good entry level receiver with plenty of inputs. It has alot of sound fields and plenty of options for setting up number of speakers, placement, distance etc. The only drawback I found was it doesn't have an audio output for the TV. So if you hook up a cable/satellite receiver or a DVD player, the only audio that can be had is thru this system.

Avoid this one

Z. Spiz, Amazon
4 January 2009
  • Summary: Nice looking receiver, good sound for the money, but absolutely nightmare to program. You can not tune to next station without manual!!! Once you save your favorite stations you are stuck with them, unless you want to spend another afternoon cursing over manual. Please avoid...

Hope you don't need warranty repair

Heavy User "Technocrat", Amazon
9 October 2007
  • Summary: The best sounding receiver I've ever owned - that is until it began changing the settings I programmed in by itself. The repair depot (third party) doesn't have a clue. They've had it for a month. According to them there is no problem. I reset and reprogrammed the receiver several times but it always changed the settings. Beware the Yamaha Warranty! If you don't have to use it you're fortunate. This morning I told them to return the unit.

I'm a Yamaha man now

Magneto "Eric", Amazon
16 June 2007
  • Summary: Impressive sound box. I migrated from Panasonic systems after some quality problems to this Yamaha and there will be no looking back. Power seems more than ample for the size of our media room; about 12' x 20'. There are a myriad of input options. I've successfully used the multichannel inputs as well as the traditional RCA inputs. Note that you can also channel your video feeds through it on their way to the final monitor in your system.

Excellent receiver!

M. Bernhagen "MB24MN", Amazon
7 May 2007
  • Summary: The Yamaha HTR-5930SL has so far been an awesome receiver! The sound that this pumps out is wonderful - crisp, loud FM stereo; floor shaking movie sounds - this thing is great. It has countless connection possibilities, is XM-ready, and can easily be programmed by a universal remote (I use my Comcast cable remote with it). I hooked it up with a $200 5 speaker Yamaha surround sound system (nothing like my parent's Bose Flagship system) and the sound is impeccable.

Great receiver !

Francisco Reyes "SonoMan", Amazon
4 May 2007
  • Summary: I'm upgrading from a Panasonic SC-HT640W (you know, one of those complete Home Theater Systems with a 5 Disc Changer and wireless sorround speakers). I decided to become a little more serious about Home Theater and, After reading many reviews, I decided to go with this receiver. Also ordered the Infinity TSS 450 Home Theater Speaker System and the Sony DVDPNS75H Upscaling DVD player. This thing rocks !!.
