Amazing Upgrade

Bryan B., Newegg

  • Summary: We have been using Yamaha receivers in our entertainment room for 15 years. When some of our original speakers from a HTIB setup started going out, I was shopping around for some new speakers. Of course, I got carried away and replaced all the old Yamaha Speakers with Klipsch speakers. Then I got to thinking about the receiver itself. Our old one is still in great condition, but dated. It's about 5 years old. I wasn't impressed with sony, onkoyo, or Samsung.
  • Pros: Has so many input connections you'll never use them all. Also has a full front panel input that allows you to hook up mp3 players, phones, etc via usb, camcorders, and what ever other device you have that's portable. Supports up to 9.2 configuration. 11.2 with an external amp. Has a wired port for internet. You can connect to SiriusXM internet service. Sound is incredible. Will upmix video to 4k, and pass through 3d. Calibration of speakers is super easy, and can even...
  • Cons: In order to run 11.2 configuration, you need to have an external amp. It was really tough to figure this out. The manual contradicts itself. This thing is huge! It barely fits on my entertainment stand. The remote is huge, and not backlit. The LCD display on the remote is pointless. You have to download the manual, all you get is the warranty and quick setup guide. The Wifi adapter (separate purchase) doesn't work too well. Never got it configured correctly. Luckily r...

  • Summary: I am rebuilding my entire system from the floor up. I am upgrading to this receiver from a Yamaha RXV-1900. I fully expect to be quite happy since my current unit is an awsome product. I will be matching it with a BDA -1040 Blue Ray also from Yamaha. This unit will express it's power and sound through New speakers with two subs. I will be using a power conditioner and High end cables and power cords.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Great Layout And Design
  • Cons: None yet

As usual, Yamaha does good

  • Summary: I am updating my mid 90's surround sound and as always picked Yamaha. The features that can be set up just about covers everything you need. Getting used to the set up choices can be a slow process, but once you are into it, it becomes easier. Looks of the unit is understate/classy and the Yamaha sound is wonderful. Great purchase for me!
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality

  • Summary: I got the Yamaha RX-3030 (as a gift but I sent my wife the URL) to replace an existing receiver in our family room. We use this for watching movies and music playback for a family of six. The purchase decision was made based on the Sabre DACs to improve the sound quality of the system. The RX-3030 sound is great. I made my wife and kids download the control app to their cell phones and they use it. It is perfect for our family room.
  • Pros: Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality

What are you waiting for???

  • Summary: I love this receiver!! I had an Onkyo TX-NR1009 that bit the bullet (hdmi card went out/no audio) 1 month after the warranty expired. I had switched to Onkyo receivers a few years back and originally was using Yamaha receivers. Why I switched to Onkyo at the time is beyond me. I absolutely love the full sound that this receiver provides. The options are pretty much limitless as far as I am concerned. I have it setup in an 8.2 configuration (1 rear surround back speaker).

Really like this receiver.

  • Summary: I have been updating my home theater for about 2 years. Tried an Onkyo Receiver, not happy with the sound ever. Tried an Emotiva UMC-1 with an Anthem amp, better, but never the sound I was looking for to match the old Yamaha I had. So I got the RX-A3030. Very happy with the decision. The set up was fairly easy but I find the manual on disc a bit annoying. It worked first time and the YPOA was very accurate. Some minor tweaks and the wife and I are very pleased.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Poor Reception / Weak Antenna, Runs Hot
