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.
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.
Summary: After reading reviews and doing some research I finally settled on the Yamaha RX-V667 as my receiver of choice. I noticed that Amazon had the RX-A700, which is esentially the same device as the RX-V667 just with better build quality and better warranty, for about $30 cheaper so purchasing the...
Summary: My receiver arrived yesterday in a box that has several damaged spots that penetrated through the box. The box is dirty and looks like it has "tire" tracks on one side of it. It appears to have been tossed around a great deal.
Pros: I normally buy onkyo but my 606 that I’ve owned for a little over 3 years just froze up on me. I really liked that unit but it wasn't the most reliable and I've read that Yamaha has been more dependable. The A 700 has a lot of similarities as far as options go. Comparing the Audysee to the Yapo--...
Cons: The one downfall for me--and it's a big one for ME: When changing the volume a Large black bar comes up on the TV screen to let you know what it is at. Every time you go to change the volume you get this huge black bar on the screen. This drives me nuts because when I watch movies I frequently fi...
Summary: got as bundle with Klipsch speakers, not impressed. If I had it to do over I would buy something else.
Pros: Easy to set up and connect. No complaints about video.
Cons: Creates a low grumble from my subs when there's no audio input. Analog output for recording works only intermittantly. Tech support couldn't help, suggested I take it to a repair facility. Haven't had an opportunity to do that yet, we'll see if the sub problem can be solved.
Summary: After owning for about 2 weeks the sub out (all of the preamp out actually) stopped working. Yamaha customer service was not helpful! Had to RMA these back to seller and get new one. (I didn't buy on Amazon, but thouoght I should write this here so all would know this reciever is a disappointment!).
Pros: looks nice, YPAO, was good while it worked. Got a set of Klipsch rb-51 reference for free with combo on Newegg.
Cons: Purchased from Newegg on April 28 (now may 14), so with ship time, I have only had this for 2 weeks. The entire pre-amp out stopped working. I called yamaha, they said "this is odd our receivers don't usually die that soon" he actually said that to me. He had me do hard reset, which did nothing. ...
Sounds much better than my Denon AVR-2807 and my Onkyo SR805
jean laurent, Amazon
6 May 2011
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.
Summary: I was shopping around for a new receiver to replace an older Onkyo 805 that was given to me by my brother. The front panel display not longer lit up when I was using it. I had looked at other brands, such as Sony, Pioneer, Denon, and Harmon Kardon.
