Summary: If you are looking at a mid to higher level performance system for a smaller entertainment space (room and shelf), this product fits the bill. A couple of nice features are included (YPAO speaker setup and tablet/smart phone integration) which add value in the setup and operation process of this device.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Sufficient Hdmi, Troubleshooting By Ypao
Summary: I'm basically using this as 3.1 sound system for living room with Roku, Directv and bluray attached. Fits in the cabinet very well and looks and sounds great. It is not the receiver to rock a larger room but very nice and what you would expect from Yamaha. I wish it had pre-out to drive an amp. I really don't need all the analog inputs BTW in 2014.
Summary: We have a medium size family room and use this for cable TV, DVD/Blu Ray and Pandora. All of which sound GREAT! The added bonus is the smaller form factor. All in all this exceeded my expectations!
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality, Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
