Superb

CG, Crutchfield
13 January 2015
  • Summary: Fantastic receiver. I originally purchased the RX-A1040, but upon recommendation from both Yamaha and Klipsch, I returned it for the RX-A3020. The RX-A3020 has many of the features of the RX-A1040, but is rated at 150 WPC which is recommended to drive the Klipsch RF-82's.
  • Pros: Clean power, very little distortion, large variety of inputs.
  • Cons: None

Yamaha products impress

UKColin, Crutchfield
8 September 2014
  • Summary: This unit is a full step up from my previous Yamaha RX-V671 that worked great. More power 150w vs 95w, Airplay that works great & more solid unit. Kinda miss not having iPod Dock although Airplay makes it obsolete . Will be bi-amping my main speakers using the YAO mic to balance them all.

Impressive Performance

Ed, Crutchfield
27 June 2014
  • Summary: Overall the 3020 is a fantastic performer. I'm coming from a succession of mid to upper tier Onkyo Receiver/Amps which have, until recently, performed relatively well and offered excellent features for their cost. The last Onkyo died just outside of warranty so I was wanting to step up a level.
  • Pros: Clean sound and great power Easy access to multi zone music Tons of inputs and HDMI outputs (even to Zone2) Relatively easy configuration - menus are very intuitive Great flexibility
  • Cons: Remote can be somewhat clunky - for a unit at this level I'm thinking touch screen LCD is in order.

One Glaring Flaw

Robert D, Crutchfield
25 June 2014
  • Summary: This is a great piece of equipment, with one glaring flaw. In its effort to make everything idiot-proof by automating simple functions, Yamaha, in its infinite wisdom, has decided to tell you how to utilize your 9 channels of power by giving you a choice of preset configurations.
  • Pros: build quality, video and audio quality
  • Cons: amp pre-configuration modes may not fit in with your system needs

Solid Receiver

ELH, Crutchfield
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I have 2 of these units, one feeding my Home Theatre Room and one (refurb) feeding my gym ( also used as spare in case main theatre breaks down). The home theatre unit is running 11.2 channels. I also have a Denon X4000 feeding my bedroom equipment. Sound quality is pretty good.
  • Pros: Good unit.
  • Cons: Rear wall channels not quite as clear as I'd like.

Real home theater in a box!

spasmonaut, Crutchfield
10 June 2014
  • Summary: This is by far the nicest A/V receiver I've ever purchased, and would do so again in a heartbeat. It supplies effortless power and has dynamic range to match, with a plethora of real, useful features to make the experience more practical, approachable, and enjoyable no matter the content.
  • Pros: Power, thoughtful and quality connections, fantastic build quality, impressive technical features, plenty of built-in entertainment value and lots of room for future expansion and to stave off obsolescence. Great auto-tuning software and intuitive and powerful on-screen GUI, crazy customization a...
  • Cons: Not exactly cheap, but a great value nonetheless. No printed manual, two-tone remote is a bit unusual, no built-in WiFi, not so much a con but a challenge is the sheer size of the unit for many shelves or cabinets so plan ahead for adequate ventilation and remember it is DEEP especially with an a...

Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3020

Naresh, Crutchfield
9 June 2014
  • Summary: I had a Yamaha rcvr about 6 years ago and was very impressed by it at that time. So when my 5 year old Onkyo could no longer process 3D HDMI it was time to upgrade so I choose the Yamaha.
  • Pros: 2 HDMI output, 150 Watts per channel
  • Cons: Sound quality not great. Speaker config for Bi amp in 5.1 plus Zone 2 not possible.

Outstanding

Skip, Crutchfield
2 June 2014
  • Summary: Crutchfield had the receiver marked down because it is discontinued. Great buy! This unit replaces an Onkyo TX-NR809 that succumbed to the reportedly common HDMI board failure six months out of warranty. My decision came down to this unit and the Denon 4520 and I could not pass up this bargain.
  • Pros: Feature laden, plenty of power to drive all of your speakers, plenty of inputs and outputs.
  • Cons: None found yet.

Good Receiver

Irad p., Crutchfield
24 May 2014
  • Summary: It's a lot nicer than the 2020, it have a tone of features and the clarity is a lot better than the onkyo . The only receiver that has better sound quality that it is that Marantz 7007. One of the things I like about the receiver is it does not run hot and it does well with different zones.
  • Pros: Nice sound quality, lots of features , very cool and different zones
  • Cons: Sounds a little weak for it power rating
