YAMAHA RX-A730

bill, Crutchfield

  • Summary: For sound quality and ease of operation this receiver is great! The YPAO took a little tweaking but it wasnt difficult. I havent tried the Apple Air Play yet but i have plans to in the future. My only complaint is the FM reception. It is very poor. I have even tried an amplified FM antenna and only got 1 extra channel as opposed to the 3 i got without it. Other than that a paper manual would've been nice.
  • Pros: ease of operation and sound quality
  • Cons: FM reception is poor

Yamaha RX-A730, good stuff!

  • Summary: This receiver is a terrific value. This is my second Yamaha receiver in the last few years. I've used Denon, Onkyo, and Sony in the past. The sound is fantastic for our home theater which is the primary use case. Setting it up is a breeze and calibrating the speakers is a cinch with the included microphone. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that I find it pretty lame that at this price point, a wireless connection isn't included, as it is on Onkyo.
  • Pros: Very clear sound, extremely easy to set-up and calibrate.
  • Cons: Lacks built in wireless for streaming.

This receiver packs a punch!

  • Summary: This product is great for the value. I expected great quality from this brand and that is what I received. Certain features are lacking and a bit confusing to control. I was shocked that his unit was not able to produce a 480p signal from my Nintendo Wii. Also, I tried to program the remote to learn the Zone 2 volume controls, but that didn't work on my universal remote. Personally, I love the GUI and the system was easy to setup.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control, No 480p Output

Good Reciever

  • Summary: You would think they could have added Wi-Fi for the price. Now days you can get Wi-Fi built in on fairly cheap TVs and Blueray players. The wi-fi is to expensive to add on.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good All Round Receiver, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: No Wi-fi

So Far So Good

J, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I purchased this receiver to replace my Onkyo tx-sr608. I was happy with the Onkyo until the hdmi board failed. After researching, it seems this is a common defect in Onkyo receivers. I would not purchase another Onkyo. This unit is built well and easy to connect to all my sources. I ran the YPAO and was initially disappointed with the sound quality.
  • Pros: Sound quality, build quality, 2nd zone connectivity, remote app
  • Cons: YPAO could use some improvement, included remote, manual is only available electronically, pure direct mode does not use the sub in my sub/sat system. Keep this in mind if your do not have full range mains.

  • Excerpt: Skvělý zvuk, jednoduché ovládání i bez připojené TV, ale ovladač je nepřehledný s množstvím malých tlačítek ve tmě nečitelných. Přehrává sice FLAC HD, ale jen ve stereu, ne FLAC 5.1.

Bra

Kretikos, Prisjakt
4 February 2014
  • Summary: En lite udda fågel bland Yamaha receivers. Specarna är snarlika 775:ans fast utan 2 hdmi-ut, utan phono samt lite strömsvagare, ändå är den prisad ungefär på samma nivå. Jag köpte denna då Giganten reade ut den för 3995 vilket kändes helt ok. Jag har inte behovet av det extra som 775:an har. En av anledningarna till att jag valde denna var att den ska stödja Spotify connect vilket utannonserades i september av Yamaha.
