Upgraded from Yamaha RX-V775A during return process.

P. Karsten, Amazon
1 January 2014
  • Summary: Ordered a Yamaha RX-V775A originally but, somebody drove a forklift through the box (Obvious external damage) and then decided to ship it to me. The right side had a massive bashed in forklift scar. Return process was flawless as usual, but QC needs to be improved. Never should have gotten to my door in that fashion. Decided to upgrade a notch and I am very satisfied with the choice. Awesome sounding receiver as I expect from Yamaha.

Unit hums and was shipped poorly

Willy M., Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: This RX-A830 hums like the old TVs did in the 1950s and 60s. I'm also having a problem with the HDMI 1 output. The service tech I talked to said it was probably a transformer in the unit, so I will take it in for servicing in 2 weeks. I don't know if shipping had anything to do with the problem, but it should have been double boxed with bubble wrap or peanuts in between.

Good sound, HDMI/HDCP reliability problems

Chris, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Sound is very, very good. I had some back speakers I was looking at replacing because of the sound quality (or lack thereof). This receiver made me change my mind. I also like the Pandora integration though typing in the username/password is a pain. HOWEVER... Reliability seems to be lacking with their HDMI and HDCP implementation.

Great receiver

TheoTV, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: The RX-A830 is an exceptional value. It replaced an older surround sound amp and there is no comparison. I have been putting my RX-A830 through the paces and it is great to work with. There is a lot to learn when using a network receiver and I am enjoying new ways to hear and see my collection of media.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality

wow, nice unit

mdmn22, ABT Electronics
20 November 2013
  • Summary: Bought this to replace an Onkyo NR609 and I couldn't be happier. Onkyo started having a lot of hdmi issues(imagine that) and instead of fixing I decided to upgrade. Great sound, easy setup. It could definitely use a better remote. Buttons are small and placed closely together and it is not backlit. Also, the onscreen interface(on the TV) could look a little better. It is 2013. I will say functionally it is great though. Can't go wrong with this unit.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control

So far so good!

Ray, ABT Electronics
15 November 2013
  • Summary: So far much easier to set up than my last reciever (only 18 months old and already in for repair-not Yamaha). The voice is clear and not lost in the surround. The audio quality is very good. The things I find annoying are the large amount of buttons on the remote and they have small print that is difficult for me to read (like most every other brands remotes) and the fact that the wifi adapter is so expensive, the other brand I owned was only around $30.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality

Great Receiver

TonyC, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: RX830 is great for home theater and watching sports. Sound is awesome through my Bowers and Wilkins speakers. I wish the remote was backlit. Great product at a reasonable price. Should have never bought my Pioneer Elite unit that I ended up replacing.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
