Excerpt: U$ for a Yamaha stereo receiver is a dream. To enjoy simple stereo sound from vinyl albums to CDs or mp3 files there is nothing like a stereo receiver with a pair of great speakers. No complications, no to many wires and great sound in a very good looking device.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: This product was exactly what I was needing, a straight-forward stereo amp and receiver without all the bells, whistles and additional system setups such as 'Surround Sound' normally included with the majority of amplifiers included on the market these days that I obviously pay for but never use.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: Receiver was purchased to replace a 45 year old Nikko 7075 which was acting up and had channel dropout issues. The new unit is VERY simple and a no frills stereo. It didn't have as many inputs as my last receiver but I have a tape mixer attached to dub in dub out jacks so that problem solved.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote Control
Excerpt: This is the perfect receiver for an office environment for the individual looking for great sound without the need for all the bells and whistles of a home theater system. The output power is amazing and can shake a room with the Yamaha subwoofer attached to the speaker output.
Summary: Great value for the price. I pushed 4 in ceiling speakers (IW280CWH 6.5 inch Yamaha in ceiling) using the A+B speaker setting. This amp handled them effortlessly. Filled a 20x30 room very well. I also plugged an iPad/iPhone through the RCA inputs and it sounds great.
Excerpt: Was looking for a simple stereo to use for tv sound enhancement and listening to music. This fit the bill perfectly. Very easy to set up and operate. The included antenna leaves much to be desired, but I have noticed that is the case with most receivers. Easy fix with a different antenna.
... this for over a year now and I am happy with it

Summary: I've had this for over a year now and I am happy with it. Its easy to use and its very convenient to have the bass and treble adjustments on the remote control. I bought this to replace an old nakamichi receiver that finally gave up.
