The RX-A1000 is an awesome receiver. I'd recommend it to anyone!!

  • Summary: Yamaha receivers have a reputation for sounding good. I owned a Yamaha RX-V6663, and I was pleased with its sound. I am even more pleased with the sound of my RX-A1000. The receiver has a crisp, clear, clean, detailed sound. Setup was easy, and I really liked being able to use multiple mic positions for the sound equalization setup. If you love to tweak your receiver, which I do, the RX-A1000 is a tweaker's dream. It is possible to customize so many settings!!

Great Sound, of course. But I am FED UP with this Receiver!!!

  • Summary: I am fed up with this Receiver. Of course it has incredible sound. The sound is warm, even, bright, natural, and powerfully loud with no distortion ever. But there are so many things that don’t work well, or at all, or just need to be changed...... 1. NO AUTOMATIC SURROUND DECODING FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS!

  • Summary: I real must have for the real enthusiast. The functionalities are out of this world, the onscreen, the 3D and the dock for the Iphone ( that dubs has a remote ) are amazing.

Great product, worth the money.

  • Summary: Not cheap, but delivers the goods. 8 AV channels + 4 audio channels, assigned in slices, so read the manual first. Internet radio, DLNA and remote control (by web browser) make life easier (for my S.O.). Minor cons: Hard to browse MP3s etc. with DLNA on web interface. Remote could work better as a universal remote (may be poor docs) iMedaShare App on tablet doesn't work as expected Takes firmware updates, so issues may be fixed later.

Outstanding audio quality, Average video performance

  • Summary: The video processor lacks options. Have to upgrade to higher model for improved video upscaler. Most of my video sources are digital, so it's not too big of a deal. But at this price point, it should include better video processor. Audio section is great! Definite improvement over my previous Sony and Onkyo AVRs. I am currently using it in 5.1 mode + 2 Presence speakers. Apple integration is lackluster. Requires separate dock. No Airplay option.

Yamaha RX-A1000 7.1 Channel Home Theater reciever

Zak at Tulip, Amazon
15 February 2012
  • Summary: The sound quality of the product is amazing. It is way much better comparaed to my previous Yamaha RX-571 or RX-371 products, however my previous RX-V2095 Product Review - has better specs for the THD but lacked the HDMI inputs. The Net radio is also great although it would be good to have access to more stations in the Bay area. The instruction on how to set up net radio need improvment as alsong with for other features such as setting the network.

Stunning

  • Summary: I matched up the Aventage 1000 with Polk Audio RTi series speakers and I could not be more pleased. The tight response, throaty base, clean highs. The GUI for the A1000 is very easy to use. I also appreciate how easy it is up upgrade the firmware with the network connection.

Excellent Receiver

  • Summary: After months of research I replaced my DENON 8187 with this AWESOME Yamaha RX-A1000 This product does have features that takes the guess work setting your speakers called the YPAO it does more than other brands besides calibrating the best sound for any room, it checks speaker connection if wrong it displays it on either reciever or TV screen display which connection is wrong and disconnects, measures distance to each speaker Optimizes each speaker calibration for bass...

Awesome Receiver

Albert Israel "Albert", Amazon
16 September 2011
  • Summary: I recently purchased this unit from Amazon to replace my old RV-1105. I tested Onkyo, Pioneer, Denon, and this definitely came out on the top. My RV-1105 was a great unit and I have had it for over 10 years and is still working great. I wanted to buy this because of the HMDI interface and the 7.1 Channel (although there are not a whole lot of 7.1 channel DVD's).
