Used it for 2 years

  • Summary: Very happy after using it for two years. Can easily program remote so that it replaces all the tv/dvd/etc remotes... allows for great sound and video pass through. Would recommend it.

Nice for the price!

  • Summary: This is a very nice AVR. The 140 watt figure stated in the technical details is a marketing ploy which measures the amps at 1khz rather than the standard measurement 20Hz - 20kHz @8ohms. Yamaha rates this reciever at 120w X 7 at 20Hz - 20kHz which is closer to the truth.

Not what it was cracked up to be

  • Summary: I tried it for 2 weeks and never could get it to hold the HDMI connections for the video. I don't know if the unit was defective or possible user error but after numerous hours trying to get it to function properly I give. It seemed too good to be true at the 600 dollar price.

  • Summary: I have been eyeing up this receiver for about a year, Best Buy finally had it at a great price and I upgraded from my JBL home theater in a box(which I loved) and I was not dissappointed.

  • Summary: This receiver is phenomenal! The ability to assign amp channels to different zones allowed me to put sound throughout my house while keeping my home theater intact and without having to buy another amplifier.

  • Summary: We purchased this unit to replace a similar one damaged by UPS in shipping. (Always buy the insurance!) We're very happy with the sound quality. The XM ready feature was a huge help.
