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.

RX-A 3020

Fred M., Amazon
21 September 2013
  • Summary: I use my 3020 every day and I love it. As good as this A/V receiver is, it could easiy have been even better.I didn't rate it 5 stars for several reasons. 1. The only USB input is in the front behind the door which for me is not ideal.

Very good receiver for its class

T. Ishizue "Tom", Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this AV receiver to replace my 13-yr old former flagship Yamaha RX-V1 receiver after the center channel amplifier went out on me. In short, this is a very good receiver in terms of raw sound quality, but nowhere near the raw sound quality the former Yamaha flagship receivers.
