Summary: I had a Yamaha Rx-v 867 7-2 receiver and I wanted to upgrade to another Yamaha receiver because I have been always pleased with Yamaha products. Again I'm so very impressed with the Yamaha rx-a3000.
No adjustable Subwoofer crossover that I can find!

Summary: Bought this last year and love the sound quality. What I don't love is the lack of subwoofer control. The old Yamaha pre HDMI receiver I owned let you adjust the crossover for the sub output in these steps: 50hz, 80hz, 100hz, 120hz. This receiver seems to just use a default setting.
Terrific receiver, has multitude of options and easy PC or smartphone control

Summary: I've had receiver for well over a year now and have not had a single issue with it. It has great power for my large power hungry speakers. I also have an outside zone setup that I ran some speaker wire to and that works great too. The sound is very good.
This is my third Yamaha amp that lost HDMI switching
28 May 2012
Summary: I purchased this RX-A3000 amplifier because it offered "Party Mode" so I could play digital inputs in Zones 2 and 3. Now after 11 months, the HDMI switching has failed. I know this to be the case because this is the THIRD time a Yamaha amp has done this to me.
Summary: I have had 2 Onkyo's which were very nice, but a third that failed. Two Pioneers, descent, One Sony fair, and a Harmon Kardon which was a good receiver. The Yammies rule. I still have an old rxv 2092 flagship receiver built back in 97 and it still rocks.
Good Receiver but Flawed, and awful customer support

Summary: This is a very nice receiver overall. It has quite a lot of functions, and the sound quality is excellent. However, I had a problem with my system. The tuner never worked most of the time. While on any FM station, the sound cuts off, just dead silence.
Perfect: Sound, hardware, features, technology, Android and Apple support

Summary: Excellent hardware, no noise, no heat, not too heavy. Excellent sound processing, easy setup, straight forward menu. Reach settings, and supporting almost every single audio/video sources. Looks very nice and give the room great and modern look.
