Summary: The owners manual a cd-rom was corrupted.I had to go to Yamaha web site and download the manual.Once that bump in the road was over I set it up and ran it through different programs.It was flawless and more importantly sounded excellent.I highly recommend it.The minus one star was for the owners...
Pros: hooked my mesia pc up to this bad boy... not one issue. upgraded from my onkyo 7.1. just when i think im done upgrading my sound system.. they go and release a 3d codec... i decided to go all out and get this. setup is a breeze.. comes with mic to do an auto setup for surround which ive left it a...
Cons: i do wish the reciever was better to look at.. my onkyo had blue leds in the nobs as well as the front panel. looked nice with my setup... this reciever just looks like any ol reciever. would also be nice if there was a mute that lowered the music but didnt completly mute .. like my onkyo
Summary: This my first Yamaha. I Did my research on the internet as we all should. I was looking at another Denon, or a Yamaha, and Onkyo. I really liked all of them, but went with the Yamaha. I have found that when it comes to movie surround sound they all perform well.
Summary: This is my second Yamaha receiver in 12 years. If it wasn't for HDMI and 11.2 audio, etc. I would still be using my Yamaha DSP-A1. Truly amazing receiver which the RX-A3010 surpasses by orders of magnitude.
Summary: I have owned several Yamaha receivers going back many years. My latest was the RX-V1, purchased about 10 years ago, but she finally bit the dust -- too expensive to repair and her technology too old to compete...hence, time to upgrade.
Summary: This is a great receiver, but you can get the Rx 3000 for half price and buy a 2 channel amp for 90 bucks from Amazon and will have full control of 9.2. So u get 5 more watts, please!! do not jump the gun, I have installed both and there is no difference what so ever.
