Five well earned stars

D. J. Leedham, Amazon
8 July 2014
  • Summary: This is the third Yamaha I've owned over thirty years. I use it to drive JBL Studio speakers in a 5.1 configuration. The main input is from the Oppo BDP 105D. There are plenty of reviews here, so I have little to add that has not already been noted. I love everything about this machine. Build quality, technical specs. And if the past two machines are a guide, this will last me very well.

Exquisite Sound

Craig A Perman, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I replaced an older Yamaha HTR-5650 with the A-1030 unit. Even though I enjoyed great sound from the older system the improvement in clarity, channel separation, and enhancement of midrange vocals was stunning. It is just an audiophiles dream to listen to the same music and hear it for first time discovering hidden sounds that add so much richness to music. The Android app for system control is very handy too allowing control on all the system settings from a tablet.

Nice Upgrade from RX-V657

Yamaha Addict, Yamaha
8 June 2014
  • Summary: The RX-A1030 is definitely a step up feature-wise from my RX-V657 which had no HDMI I/O capabilities. My 10 yr. old DLP rear-projection TV died, so I had to replace it with a new LED TV which of course only possesses HDMI I/O. A new A/V receiver was needed, and Yamaha has been my go-to brand for over 30 years. The RX-A1030 doesn't disappoint! I have it set up with satellite TV, 3-D Blu-Ray, and OTA broadcast TV with FM antennas.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Runs Hot

Yamaha AVENTAGE "A Must" For 4K Ultra HDTVs

Ed, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: Having purchased the older Yamaha RX-A3020 9.2-Channel Network AVENTAGE AV Receiver in December 2012 for my main entertainment room and was very happy with it, another Yamaha AVENTAGE receiver with 4K upscaling capabilities was my only choice to pair with my new Samsung UN55HU9000 Curved 4K Ultra HD Smart LED HDTV. The picture of the UN55HU9000 is so impressive that I needed a receiver that was up to the task to complement the Samsung.

Excellent piece of equipment

Dr.J, Yamaha
19 April 2014
  • Summary: I love everything about this unit. Good power output, easy setup, and great sound. The only con is the remote. For a thousand dollar (plus) system, the remote feels small, cheap, and plasticky. I feel like my Apple TV remote is of better build quality. And that was only a hundred bucks. I've ditched the remote for a Logitech Harmony One, and it is much more intuitive than the original remote.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control
