Summary: Excellent receiver! The sound is much better than the Denon AVR 4306 that it replaced. It made my JBL speakers come to life. Internet streaming of Rhapsody and Pandora works very well and sounds so good too.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: good stuff i would buy it if i were the average home theater owner like myself. 8 hdmi outputs are more then i will ever use. it hase plenty of power for 5.1 or 7.1 i love it and i think you will too
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.
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...
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.
