Outstanding audio quality, Average video performance

yz125, Amazon

  • 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!

Awesome Receiver

Albert Israel "Albert", Amazon

  • 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.

Good product and bad support

  • Summary: This is my 2nd unit. The first one arrived fast, everything works except the network port which indicated no link. Contacted Yamaha support and waited for days and never heard back (it's been a month now and still no one contact me from their support team).

Excellent

  • Summary: I haven't had a receiver since my old Denon got stolen... but I'm using the RX-A1000 with 2x Klipsch WF-35 floor standers, 2 x Klipsch WB14 Bookshelves, the Klipsch WC24 center, and 2x Klipsch WS24 surrounds for a 7.1 experience and let me say the Aventage is AWESOME! The sound is so CLEAN.

  • 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...

One month of light use and the power supply died

Susan G. Wood, Amazon
16 January 2011
  • Summary: Oh! How disappointing, "upgraded" to this receiver after much soul searching. Had a new home built and had it wired for 7.1 surround with a pair of speakers outdoors off the zone2 speaker outputs. All new speakers, had the wiring checked for continuity and found no shorts.

Replaced an RX-V1 with the RX-A1000-nice unit!

Wazmo, Amazon

  • Summary: Although this doesn't have the same power supply build that the legendary RX-V1 did, the features on this unit were nothing short of phenomenal at the price point and make the RX-V1 look dated by comparison.

Good receiver for movies

MEJazz, Amazon
16 January 2011
  • Summary: UPDATE 09/07/11: It turned out the settings in my PS3 were not sending it full resolution audio streams. I had to change the Music settings to allow higher bit-rate and then change Video playback HDMI audio to send Bitstream to it. Also changed optical to bitstream just in case.

Great Receiver, excellent sound.

R. Burris, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased this receiver with the bundled Klipsch HDT 500. I am happy as can be. In the 80s I was stationed in Germany and purchased separate components, Yamaha, Soundscraftsmen, Carver, Nakamichi, etc. Times has changed but Yamaha still exist.

Yahama over-hyped this one

Image Comm, Amazon
16 January 2011
  • Summary: As I write this review, I am listening to my favorite music DVD (Eagles, hell freezes over), and I have the volume cranked to about 70% to match the listening volume of the Yamaha HTR 5790 (50% volume) that this RX-A1000 replaced. The 5790 had 110 watt vs 105 watt per channel for the RX-A1000.
