Bit of a learning curve to get good, consistent surround sound

Very Clean Sound, Tons of Options

Pam K, Amazon
17 April 2013
  • Summary: As a decade plus user of Yamaha Products, I upgraded from a HTR 5950 to the 6230 for HDMI. I found the Users guide as always not very user friendly as to how each setting applies specifically, but from all my past experience I was able to dial the settings right in.

OK I Guess

SDB, Amazon
16 December 2012
  • Summary: The sound is awesome, but I can only give it 3 stars because of the really terrible set up process and an absolutely useless manual. To be honest with you, if I am reading everything right, the remote is pretty much useless too.

Not worth it

D. Story, Amazon
13 March 2012
  • Summary: I might have a lemon, but this reciever has been terrible. About 3 months after I got it, the protection system kicked in. This system will turn the reciever off if it detects a short somewhere. I did normal troubleshooting, plugged in speakers one by one, and it kept happening.

No Problems

  • Summary: I have had this receiver now for about 4 months, and have abused it and the speakers attached. Really have had no problems, setup required a tiny bit of reading. Which I guess is why they supply a manual!

User Review

  • Summary: Very nice receiver. I've always heard that Yamaha is a great Audio brand. This replaced a Sony, and it blows the Sony out of the water. Right now, I have a Boston Acoustics Micro90t speaker system connected.

Mine blew up

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 December 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this unit. It blew up three and a half months later, with very light use. Flash of blue light, a loud pop, and a bit of smoke. That was the sound and smell of my money going up in smoke.

Defective out of the box

D.R., Amazon
2 March 2010
  • Summary: Unit makes loud popping noises during certain operations of my DVR. Tried 3 separate DVR units, but noises remain. I am sure this is damaging my speakers. Unit was like this out of the box, but I attempted to debug by swapping components and cables on the weekends and exceeded Amazon's return...
