Summary: I was actually looking for a good stereo receiver, but ended up with this anyway, based on the price. I've always liked Yamaha. Good build quality, never have any issues with it, easy to setup, etc.
Summary: I bought this as a B-stock and had some reservations. I hooked it up and couldn,t be more pleased. I'm runnimg my satelite box,Two Blue ray players into it and out to my 47" Philips flat screen.This is using total HDMI hook-ups. Everything works great and the sound is awesome. It can blow you out of the house. Great features,great quality,You can,t go wrong buying this receiver.As for as con's go there are none.
Summary: My Onkyo system started having problems, so after considerable research I came across this Yamaha HTR-6240BL at a wonderful price of $199. Can't be happier with it. I loved the automatic setup with the included microphone in the center of the room to optimize the sound from all speakers. We are hearing 5:1 stereo audio we hadn't previously heard with our former unit. All the positive reviews we read on Amazon were dead on. LOVE IT!
Summary: I purchased this item to have more flexibility with multiple HDMI connections as well as dolby digital sound. The unit met my expectations but was not redilly easy to set up mostly due to a wire short in the center speaker I connected. After resolving this issue, the unit was easily set up using Yamaha's automatic setup of speakersa with the included setup microphone. The unit has worked flawlessly so far and I am very pleased with the sound quality.
