Plenty of power, lots of features

Chris Q., Newegg
17 October 2013
  • Summary: This replaces an inexpensive HTIB I was using to drive my bookshelf speakers and subwoofer so of course it’s a huge upgrade. The speakers sounded fine but I discovered that the HTIB has a fixed crossover at about 100-120Hz (much higher than the 75Hz my subwoofer could reach) and also rolled off bass below ~35Hz (higher than my subs 25Hz range) so now I’m getting all the bass I’m entitled to.
  • Pros: Power rated at 110W with honest specs (2 channels driven, 20-20 0.06% THD, 8Ω), rated for 4Ω speakers, phono input, YPAO with multi-measure, 7-band manual parametric equalizer to tweak YPAO settings, can browse iPod via receiver remote or directly, network audio is convenient (Net Radio, SiriusXM, Pandora), preamp outputs, bi-amp capable. “Learning” remote handy to control disc player and TV.
  • Cons: No major cons. Only one crossover setting for sub whereas other receivers have a crossover setting for each set of speakers (fronts, surrounds, center, etc.) which is useful if you have different non-full-range speakers. I’d also like finer increments for the crossover settings—it skips from 60 to 80Hz but I want 70. Another entry-level receiver allows 10Hz increments from 40-200Hz. It runs warm compared to the HTIB it replaced. This unit like many receivers with 2 su...

Yamaha has upgraded to 1030

Richard M., Newegg
10 June 2013
  • Pros: Being able to control with your smart phone Apple or Android is great. This receiver is powerful it blew my woofer when I was playing the 1812 overture. Great sound and network connectivity.
  • Cons: This model has been replaced by the RX-A1030 which has a improved DAC. It is the same price so get the new one.

Incredible Receiver!

Kevin C., Newegg
11 January 2013
  • Summary: Extremely happy. I first purchased the Yamaha RX-V671 (673) and was very happy with all the features but only somewhat pleased with the sound. This receiver blows that one away on the sound quality. This really woke my speakers up, sound is crisper and the bass is tighter, overall much more colorful and robust sound.
  • Pros: Easy set up, extensive features, great design, incredible sound.
  • Cons: No printed manual. No digital sources to Zone 2.

Save your Money

  • Pros: Easy setup
  • Cons: I purchased this to replace my 10 year old receiver to have the 3D and hdmi. Can not get decent surround sound. My old receiver sounded 10 times better. Spoke to Yamaha and they could not resolve the issue. They said "return it if you don't like it"

Great Receiver

Russel K., Newegg
9 November 2012
  • Summary: I have it set up as 5.1 for now (since I'm upgrading my old home theatre system). I'm considering going up to 7.1, but not sure how much difference it makes.
  • Pros: Many HDMI inputs. Also supports older connections (digital optical, digital coax, component, RCA). All the older connections are re-configurable to which A/V output the correspond with. Sound is very crisp, and not exaggerated. HDMI Standby is a great feature - you can still select the input with the receiver "off" and it will go straight to the TV - sound comes out of the TV as well. Then if you turn on the receiver, it takes over the sound which no longer gets sent ...
  • Cons: I haven't had any issues yet. I did a lot of comparing, and read the instruction manual before purchasing - so I knew exactly what I was getting.

  • Excerpt: Сначала думал взять ямаху 830 но на каком то не нашем форуме вычитал что у ямахи 1020 потенциала больше а денег столько же. Ну это было действительно логично...
  • Pros: Звук! на вид и вес(15кГ)- ВЕЩЬ! не греется!!!
  • Cons: жрет электричество как слон, ну и еще можно к пульту придраться, не очень удобен.

  • Summary: Har enbart använt denna produkt till musik under en kortare period och då testat airplay, men till största delen använt yamahas mobila kontroll-app för att navigera runt bland musikarkiven och streama via mediaserver över nätverket. Här finns inte så mkt att klaga på. ljudet är högupplöst med en kraftfull och neutral klang, samtidigt som nätdelen verkar kapabel nog till att driva det allra mesta i högtalarväg.

Ganska bra

Tomas L, Prisjakt
28 October 2013
  • Summary: Jag hade en 1020 hemma under en vecka, men var tyvärr tvungen att lämna tillbaka den då volymvredet lossnade efter 24 timmar. Jag har säkerligen fått ett måndagsexemplar, men det gör samtidigt att jag inte kan sätta så högt betyg som den förtjänar. I övrigt så fungerade allt bra, även om YPAO ströp signalen till mina subwoofers så pass att de nästan blev ljudlösa.
