Summary: I have been using a Yamaha receiver for years. I just purchased a Sony W850 series LED TV and wanted to upgrade to a new receiver. I researched many and again settled on the Yamaha for the best in class audio. No disappointment here. The product is solid in every aspect.
Summary: My third Yamaha receiver and it doesn't disappoint. I have it wired to my network and can control it from anywhere with my phone or my computer. It sounds as good as the receiver it replaced (RX-V1500), but I have to turn it up a little more because I went from 125W/ch to 90W/ch.
Summary: I took a calculated risk in buying this online without ever testing one in person. Thats the perk of shopping online rather than driving around to 20 electronics stores looking for what you want. I currently own multiple Yamaha products and they are all very well made.
Pros: This receiver, so far, has been outstanding. The sound drivers are brilliant. The sound presets are excellent and plentiful. The bass is balanced and pure but not over-powering at low levels. Plenty of settings to make it sound perfect. I haven't hooked up the 7 speakers yet but the 5.1 is enrapt...
Summary: My speakers have come to life. I had this amp playing in 1 hour. Using Paradigm 11's and like surrounds. I have to keep checking to see if my center is playing on 2 channel mode due to the spectacular seperation on my mains. Easy everything with this amp. Exceptional value for the money.
Summary: I have another Yamaha stereo in the house RX-1010 but I didn't want to spend another $900 on a receiver so I did some research and ended up with this one. I only have 5.1 surround connected to it but this receiver has everything I need including AirPlay.
Summary: An excellent product from Yamaha. I tested this baby out with my Klipsch speakers and SVS pb12-nsd sub and the sound was just amazing. Clear dialog and music and exceptional bass. I haven't tested the AM/FM receivers yet. The receiver is capable of doing all I want it to do and more.
Summary: In the past I've used nothing by hi-end Onkyo recievers (about 15 years). After the second Onkyo failed after only 3 years (HDMI section stopped working)I decided it was time to move to another brand. This Yamaha reciever put my Onkyo equipment to shame.
Summary: I bought this receiver not from Amazon but from another very reliable vendor who had the same price This is a very solid unit that has very solid build quality and great sound for the price. - very good build, feels and looks great. All buttons, knobs, terminals feel very solid.
