Love this receiver

Brasewel Noronha, Amazon
16 June 2013
  • Summary: I have 2 of these receivers in my house and love that it's so feature packed at it's price point. It has 5.1 pre-outs which gives you the option of connecting external power amps for your speakers. This is a great budget receiver for most people.

I thoroughly enjoy the receiver.

Aaron E, Amazon
3 May 2013
  • Summary: Great sound, nice features and easy to use. This is a dramatic improvement when watching movies, playing video games, listening to CD's or records. I would recommend this to anyone who is inclined to purchase a Yamaha product.

Great 2-Channel Reciever

Donald A. Peterson, Amazon
15 March 2013
  • Summary: I picked up this Receiver when I moved into my new house last April and I am very pleased with it. It took me a little longer to get the outside speakers to work on Channel 2, but that is because I am not a very knowledgeable person when it comes to AV or Sound Systems. Good thing my buddy visited me when I moved in.

Awesome for the price

Andrew Simmering "I can read!", Amazon
6 August 2012
  • Summary: Good deal. Replaced a much cheaper Pioneer and the quality shows. It's built like a tank. When people say "they don't make them like they used to", I'm pretty sure they are not talking about this receiver. It's clearly heavy duty.

Perfect for the price

Jamison Sacks, Amazon
16 May 2012
  • Summary: Got this on sale (60% off!) right when I needed to get a new receiver as the old one had died. This device works perfectly and for those of us not interested in spending $$$$$$ for sub decimal sounds that the human ear really can't perceive, it's awesome. Plenty of connections - shared HDMI output. It works wonderfully.

Great Unit

McTubeGuy, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: I replaced an old Yamaha unit with this one because I wanted to step up to 5.1-7.1 surround. It has many features I will never use, but does all I want. Easy set-up and easy to follow instructions and sounds great with my Klipsch speakers.

Sounds much better than my Denon AVR-2807 and my Onkyo SR805

Laurent Casado, Amazon
4 February 2012
  • Summary: Excellent receiver for the price period. It's my first Yamaha gear and it sounds much better than my previous Denon AVR-2807 or my Onkyo SR805 that weight twice the Yamaha and end up on fire (I will never buy Onkyo anymore). I was surprised how musical is this receiver. It's hooked up as a bi-amp to a pair of polk LSI9 and sound pretty good. When you know that those speakers are 4 ohms and need a lot of power.

Gets the job done.. but not 100%

John Reed Porter "whisp", Amazon
3 January 2012
  • Summary: Amazon is a certified reseller of Yamaha so the warranty is legitimate. It has every codec and feature you could want except USB and network connectivity, but I have it plugged into a media center PC so that isn't an issue. I read upgrading the firmware is a real pain because of the lack of network support but I haven't tried it myself, actually I haven't been able to even get the firmware version to display despite doing exactly what is told of me online (special button...

Excellent Quality for Entry Level of Yamaha Aventage line of AV Receivers

dburkbofa, Ebay
2 January 2012
  • Summary: I got a 3D LED TV and 3D Blue Ray player so needed to update my AV receiver to the correct HDMI level (3D requires 1.4a or above). Technically this is last year's model and was B-Stock (look it up on Yamaha's site, but basically refurbished or otherwise returned and resold). The receiver I got is perfect from a cosmetic perspective and was very easy to set up (a bit easier than my Onkyo which is now relocated to my secondary Home Theatre, i.e. Master Bedroom).

Excellent Mid Range AV receiver

Kragbax, Amazon
22 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a failing 10 year old Sony. I looked long and hard and read MANY consumer and professional reviews. Near the end, it came down to a different Yamaha (667) and this one. It was almost a flip of the coin, as both were rated very highly. I went with this model and haven't looked back. Frankly, either one would make a great replacement, start of a new system. Now this acts as the "hub" of my home entertainment system.
