  • Summary: Overall an excellent receiver, especially useful (to me) because of the video processing/upscaling. The UI is a bit thread-bare but usable.

Upgraded from Yamaha RX-V775A during return process.

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.

Unit hums and was shipped poorly

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.

  • Summary: Hello All, I down graded from separates (Anthem AVM-30) to this unit. I need HDMI switching & stand by HDTV viewing while unit is off. The sound is really good but I do miss the bass. That's the biggest difference. The bass isn't a tight enough. I'll do some more adjusting to fix this issue.
