Summary: I upgraded from an RX-V1 which was Yamaha's flagship reciever 15 years ago. It served me well, with only a couple minor repairs over the years. We wanted several things from our replacement receiver. HDMI switching, networking, DLNA, USB, as well as a little more power.
Summary: This receiver sounds great. I found the menus clear and well designed, and the display useful (looking at you Marantz). The sound was a little too bright for me and my setup, but only slightly so. Lossless music via digital input proved that the DACs are very detailed with good separation.
Summary: electronics has got to be the best interest or hobby mankind could pursue . looked at many high end av components this unit is unbelievable, I would buy ten more just to have around when the other fails .
Summary: I bought because met my expectations and i would recomend this product...i think it's discontinuo but still... the new its not so powerfull like this one....love it.Thank you Amazon fast delivery great service guys, A+++
Summary: I recently purchased a Monitor Audio Silver Series 5.0 setup consisting of one pair of RX8 as front, RXCenter & RXFX for surrounds. I do not have a sub at this point so I can not comment on the LFE channel performance.

Summary: I lied I have 1.......not everyone in the house likes movies as much as I do.......so I rarely crank it up.........but when I do.....this thing shines.......I like the 2 simultaneous outputs as I have my projector hooked up to it as well.....
Summary: Wow! would be enough to say.. but here it goes. I have it setup as 11.3 channel setup(use "y" split for second sub). I would recommend using at least 4 extra amps. because this receiver is rated at 150 at 2 channels driven, which presents a problem when you want to power 9 speakers at the same time.
Summary: This is an amazing receiver. On a purchase like this the best thing I can say is that after a couple weeks I've had zero buyers remorse. The sound quality and power are excellent and the network functions are well done. Coming from an Onkyo 805 I also appreciate how much cooler this receiver runs.
