Summary: We bought this 9 months ago and love it. The sound quality is phenomenal, and using AV controller lets me turn on the system while outside from my android phone, adjust the volume, and also stream music directly to the outside speakers (zone 2) from my phone. No going inside to make adjustments.
Summary: This receiver is fantastic! I recently upgraded from an older Yamaha (RXV 667) which was also terrific, but I felt I needed a little more power to run my Definitive Tech speakers (BP6 fronts, CLR 2030 center, SM 350 surrounds) in my system.
Summary: Basically I did a lot of research on the best receivers and this one comes highly recommended. We wanted a receiver with great sound and a lot of power and we weren't disappointed. Connecting the receiver was a bit challenging and we almost called in a professional but we finally figured it out.
Summary: I finally got my Yamaha RXA1010 surround hooked up in my theater room. WOW!!!! This thing really sounds fantastic! It has all the features of much more expensive units on the market but at a reasonable price. Seens to be pretty easy to use and the on screen capability is impressive.
Summary: 20 years ago I was a High End Home stereo salesman. I would say I am experienced at the least. I have had 2 Onkyos over the last 10 years. I thought they sounded good, maybe not great. My last txsr707 was a piece of garbage. It lasted 3 years and got so hot you could literally cook an egg on it.
Summary: I can't imagine how I could be happier. I upgraded for the HDMI Inputs and found the best features come from the network connectivity. How cool is it to have receiver access to almost any music ever recorded?
Summary: We purchased this for the features and good luck with other Yamaha products. So far, my wife and I are very happy with the sound, relative ease of use and the myriad of connectivity choices. We wish the remote control was backlit.
Summary: One thing not mentioned in other reviews is the outstanding warranty that comes with this unit, THREE FULL YEARS parts and labor. Inside it is built like a piece of lab test equipment, very solid, well organized, plenty of heat sinks.
