Yamaha is still getting it right in Receivers these are top notch products.

  • Summary: Yamaha always makes nice receivers. This one has plenty of power for all the speakers I need to fill the house with sound, it's neither too bright and it is not muddy with bass at low, medium or high, shake-the-earth volumes. I have owned a couple of other Yamaha receivers, including one that had the first iteration of Yamaha's sound fields built-in.

Excellent buy for this reliable, well-built piece of superior equipment.

  • Summary: I've had this receiver for several years now - I've replaced it with two different receivers - an Onkyo and a Harman Kardon - I've gone back to THIS Yamaha both times - neither of the other (more expensive and fancier) receivers had the sound quality that this one does.

So far awesome ! Shipped next day by OneCall!

  • Summary: Delivery by OneCall was fantastic !! It was shipped the next day and I got the system the next day. Sounds incredible so far. The only problem I found is, if, for some reason, the system cannot decode the DVD audio, it does not switch the Input mode to 'Analog'. Hence, no audio signals are outputted. You have to manually switch the Input mode to 'Analog' from 'Auto' to get the audio in analog mode.

Great

  • Summary: I was tired of not having surround sound to go along with my hdtv, so I needed a cheap system to last me until HDMI 1.3 is implemented, when i will overhaul my entire setup...tv, receiver, speakers, sub, etc... I bought this receiver to go along with some Klipsch speakers and a Klipsch Sub about 4 months ago. When I got everything home and hooked it up, it soudned ok I guess.

Fair at best

J. D. Rogers, Amazon
16 December 2009
  • Summary: I purchased one of these a few years ago and find the sound and power unimpressive. It's user interface is a pain to use in that it is not intuitive and is overly complicated. The labels on the unit are small and hard to read, and the remote is a pain. If the wrong button is hit you may lose all sound or get really wierd effects. It tries to be more than it can be.

Classic Yamaha Sound

D. Nicholson, Amazon
14 November 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this unit a little over a month ago, and am very please with the performance and features that it has. In any setup, your speakers will have the biggest impact on the sound, but having a good quality surround receiver with minimal amplifier distortion makes a big difference as well. This receiver not only delivers beautiful surround sound for movies, but Yamaha goes the extra mile to provide DSP settings to enhance music listening enjoyment as well.

Etronics-horrible experience

L. Crow "buster", Amazon
28 October 2009
  • Summary: Product arrived damanaged via UPS on June 2. Amazon arranged a pick up for product to go back to Etronics. After 5 weeks of e-mails and telephone calls Etronics threw in the towel and ordered a refund. I went to Circuit City, talked to a knowledgable sales rep and got a better product for same amount of money. Buying electonics on the internet is a mistake. You save no money after you figure the shipping.
