Summary: This unit sold as a class B, which simply means it does not meet all factory Q.A. standards,(normally a blemish) & the seller normally provides a 1 year warranty. After inspection, the marking (sticker) on the unit i received is clearly marked "C STOCK", which simply means this unit was a demo or floor model. I am 100% satisfied with this receiver. I did research before purchasing this unit to avoid any surprises on my part.
Not worth the headache. Get a Onkyo, Denon or Sony instead

Summary: This is an incredibly bad piece of equipment. HMDI wont transmit sound and video (??) Maybe the product I got was defective, but overall just setting this item up was incredibly frustrating. Having the added let down that it wouldn't work was just the fly in soup.
Best home theater receiver on the market for the price.

Summary: I have a Bose 5 speaker home theater sound system with a Sony LED/LCD TV. It was recommended that I use this Yamaha Receiver instead of the Bose Receiver with this system. It works great and is easy to operate. Especially for the price. I liked it so well that I have 2 of these receivers. My first one I purchased about 4 years ago. I bought this one because they may discontinue this model.
