Very Good AVR

A. S. Arvind, Amazon
22 December 2011
  • Summary: I just wanted an AVR that can process DTS-HD_MA and Dolby TrueHD. Plus one that does upscale/convert multiple inputs into a single HDMI output, so I don't have to run more than one output cable. I connected my Media Player with HDMI, Satellite Box with Composite Cables, a DVD player with Component + Optical Audio and ran only one HDMI cable to the TV from this AVR. All my needs are met. Comes with FM/AM Antennas as well.

My Amazonian Experience...

DonJuan, Amazon
22 November 2011
  • Summary: In our world of Super Electronics, there are a variety of choices...However, making the right choice the fist time in tough economic times is extremely difficult. Thanks to Amazon and their trusted partnerships, my recent purchase of Yamaha's HTR-6250BL 630 Watt 7-Channel Home Theater Receiver has changed the way I listen to Smooth Jazz, and has transformed and enhanced my entire musical library!

Great Deal on a Yamaha Surround Sound Receiver

jmhinkey, Ebay
3 March 2010
  • Summary: I really like how the receiver sounds. The auto setup for speaker configuration is awesome. The only thing I haven't easily figured out is how to hookup my PC to the unit with an HDMI cable. I'm having trouble getting the sound to work at the same time. I can probably solve my problem with a nicer video card. Also, one other thing. My direct tv remote won't control the receiver. That does suck. Guess I'll have to get a different remote.

Works with Wii component cable now

Mark Adler, Amazon
16 January 2010
  • Summary: I've had this unit since April 2009, and I am very pleased with it, but only after two firmware updates from Yamaha. The first problem I had was unreliable HDMI signal passing from a Panasonic Blu-ray player to a Panasonic TV. (Naturally those two worked fine when connected directly to each other, bypassing the receiver.) That was solved by the May 2009 firmware upgrade from Yamaha. The second problem was its inability to connect a Wii using the component video cable.

Great stereo for the price

Chris S "Jeep Nut", Amazon
12 November 2009
  • Summary: The on screen menus and automatic sound field setup using the included mic make this model much easier to get tuned for best surround sound than lower models. It also has really good sound for both movies and music, and a good FM tuner. Upscaling from the analog RCA inputs to the HDMI output simplifies hookup, and the upscaling is quite good with none of the distortion patterns I have seen created by other units.

mostly great, but unhappy with audio quality

Chip R., Amazon
16 July 2009
  • Summary: I tried this receiver for a month and ended up returning it. Nonetheless, there are some things I really like a lot. Great design. It was super easy setup. The menus were great, and the way inputs are labeled makes a lot of sense. Fidelity for my video playback was great. The problem I had was that the sound quality was noticeably and severely degraded when the DSP was enabled.

Great Receiver for the price.

Advocate "DonC", Amazon
26 April 2009
  • Summary: There are two model numbers for this AV Receiver as disclosed on CNET. One model number is the RX-V565BL, the other is the HTR-6250BL, which I purchased. At various times, the prices of the two vary on Amazon, so I just went with the cheaper one. I coupled the receiver with the Energy Take Classic 5.1 and was able to get two satellites on Ebay to complete a 7.1 speaker system. To round out the system I have the Mitsubishi DLP 73".
