Summary: I have had 5 Yamaha recievers and this is the first one to let me down. The auto sub control kills the bass even when you shut it off. The height channel will give you ear fatigue half way through a movie. I used this reciever for 3 days and put it back in it's box.
Summary: Stopped working and Yamaha can't repair it After three attempts. I lost both subwoofer channels and after bringing in for repair by the so called authorized repair center, the subwoofers still do not work. Calling Yamaha Tech Support is a complete waste of time.
We keep returning to Yamaha A/V equipment and are very happy with this

Summary: We have had audio and video equipment from Yamaha, McIntosh, Marantz, NAD, and several other companies. Our experience has ranged from excellent (as we have come to expect from Yamaha and McIntosh) to very disappointing (as we have learned to expect from some other brands.
Summary: This thing rocks! I have had it for a while, powering my home theater, but recently wired up two more zones in my house for sound. I am using an Android app on my smartphone to control the audio around the house - I can pick songs and playlists, adjust volume and DSP settings, change AM/FM stations,...
Summary: I've had this now for several months - No issue so far and the power is really great! It pushes my Klipsch RF-82 and RC-62 really nicely, no distortion, one of the smallest THD on the market in this price range. It's worth the money!
Summary: 5 stars for the "good" price on this 'new in box' home theater receiver. Dynamic service was great - unit arrived much quicker than advertised - most happy. Have set up the receiver and calibrated the speakers but have not even scratched the surface as far as really configuring any of the options.
Receiver died after 3 months - can't get hold of Yamaha support.

Summary: I bought this from Amazon on Oct-20th because of the $1,050 price when the new model was released. I used this in a condo living room for general TV-watching and because of the environment it was never driven very hard.
