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.
Summary: I just bought this item 1 week ago and i love it. I replaced my pioneer reciever which finally gave way. It is easy to use and the sound it great. I did not need alot of watts per channel i live in an apt so the 550 watts of power it offered was great. It does the job and the price was right.
Summary: Great receiver. Replaced my 600 watt Philps Home Theater in a Box. Despite less total wattage it sounds awesome. I am using it with Sony speakers which I am also very happy with. Although I have not heard it with a subwoofer yet (Athena 10 inch is in the mail), it almost has as much bass as my old...
Summary: Have reused cheap speakers (total 330w) from a Panasonic bookshelf system and 125 watt (rms) Dahlquist sub-woofer. Even with this cheap infrastructure the difference was mindblowing. Tested only on movies though. This rates as one of the purchases I should have made long ago.
Summary: I just installed my new receiver last night - in a breeze. This replaces my high-end Yamaha RX-V890; I needed 2 optical audio inputs. I tested all the functions and I am totally impressed and satisfied with my purchase. What is most important, is to have good speakers.
Summary: I replaced a fried Sony Home theater-in-a-box (that I had won two years ago) with this Receiver. Before that I had owned a Pioneer Receiver for about 8 years, and a Fisher unit before then. This Yamaha is by far my favorite!
Summary: I've had the receiver for about two months. I use it with two floor speakers and one center speaker. Before I had Sony after that Technics and now Yamaha. Yamaha sound quality was very well distinguished at the moment I hooked it with the same speakers.
Summary: Everything is working perfectly and it's hooked up to my 50 in. plasma. This is perfect for the starter and also has optical and digital inputs. Actually, it's better than starter and for the price...this is it.
Summary: I have this receiver on one of my room in combination with the Pioneer SFCRW240LS 5.1 speakers and the system sounds great a lot of power but also a lot of sound quality I live in a townhouse and during the week I only have time to see the movies after 1AM with the "night mode" I don't disturb any...
