Great great product

C.Partey, Amazon
19 February 2016
  • Summary: Great great product. easy to use remote compared to my Pioneer VSC 1021. The usb and the hdmi in the front is very useful. All I can say is this mean machine is very good for listening to music (audiophile). Home theater wise I'd prefer the Pioneer.

A good reciever but could use a few improvements...

JS_1042, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: I've owned this receiver for about a year and a half now and see that it has been discontinued. But I use Amazon reviews extensively, even when buying used products from other vendors, so maybe this review will help someone out who is looking to buy a used model of the RX-A810.

Not Happy

Nestor Lopez, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: Retired my old receiver because it has no HDMI connections. Ordered this RX-A810. There were still 9 in stock when I placed the order. Received email that they (not Amazon) no more stock and offered me RX-A820 which they say an upgrade and will give it at same price as the RX-810.

Great Product.

Savage, Amazon
29 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought the a-810 to replace my HTR 5790. Mostly because I had no HDMI and was lacking 3d pass through. Now this isn't a review for the HTR but I have to say for a product that was THX certified and cost about 900 in 2004 I'd say this was a huge miss for Yamaha the audio quality was terrible and...

BUY if you can find one (do NOT buy from the merchants here)

Excalibur212, Amazon
29 June 2012
  • Summary: Long story short: Buy the RX-A810 (if you can find one), instead of the RX-A820 which skips over HDMI from a PC. See my review of the RX-A820 here for more details, and do not buy it. Try to find an RX-A810 locally and get a much superior receiver. One that actually outputs 480p over HDMI.

Nothing but trouble

The Nihilest, Amazon
29 June 2012
  • Summary: This thing sounded good for about 8 months. Then it just went to hell. Just random features wouldn't work, then would, then wouldn't again. Then it would send different levels of signals to different speakers, and suddenly without sent a huge spike to all my speakers and destroyed a set of Polk RTI...

Excellent Home Theater Receiver!

Doctor Nick, Amazon
3 May 2012
  • Summary: Pros: Excellent A/V quality on all sources including compressed music (mp3, aac, etc.). Intuitive menus and easy to change settings. The YPAO mic is a great starting point for calibrating the speakers in your room. Feature rich supporting all the latest A/V standards.

Options Options

Robert F., Newegg
26 March 2012
  • Summary: read manual, much to this system than meets the eyes but not for the weak hearted in reading manuals
  • Pros: Many many options. This is a jack of all systems. Handles it all from Gaming, Classical, Heavy Metal, to Star Wars: New Hope on a soft note. If you want to get the maximum for the minimum dollar this is the best. See cons.
  • Cons: If you are a die hard audiophile you will like this but if you really need serious power I would recommend the next level up. System has a nice smooth system for those that enjoy the quality but if you want some serious SPL or harder bass I would not recommend this one. If you do not like having ...

Truly Wonderful!

Robert C., Newegg
27 February 2012
  • Summary: I was a little concerned that firmware updates might slow me down when turning the unit on (as in my LG BluRay player) but so far it has not been an issue at all. I understood I had to choose between using the internal 6th & 7th amps for Zone 2 speakers or for my rear center surround speaker.
  • Pros: Every time you buy something new, there are "surprises?" Well, no exception here - except that all of the surprises have been good news! I love the connectivity to both the internet and my own music/video/picture libs on my PCs. Pandora has been particularly sweet. I replaced a 16 year old Yamaha...
  • Cons: Might be an issue for some - no wi-fi. But my house is completely wired and I prefer the performance of hard-wired anyway. The on-screen navigation when connected to a PC in your home network is a little clumsy through the remote. A little k/b would have been a wonderful addition. Still, I'm hopi...
