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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I had previously purchased an RX A-2000 from Amazon. It worked well for a couple days and then wouldn't power on. Amazon, being the stellar folks they are, took it back and refunded my money. Thanks Amazon! After deciding to give the Aventage line "one more try", I ordered the RX A-3000.
Summary: I'm an old, crusty retired physicist. After months of research, I bought my 3rd Yamaha receiver. Over the last 20 of my 48 years of being an audiophile, I have purchased an RX-V1170, an RX-V4600, and now the RX-A3000. I personally have never had a failure on any Yamaha electronics product.
