Summary: The Yamaha RX-V1 is a reliable and fantastic unit. In my opinion, it is one of the finest audio/video home receivers Yamaha have ever made. This is a very powerful unit at 110 watts per channel and is quite simple to operate. The RX-V1 is extremely heavy at over 80 pounds but overall, a great piece of equipment!
Summary: Hopefully anywhere you want it to sit in your home entertainment system! This amp, although rated at "110" watts per channel, really is one of the last great systems of a dying audiofile breed. While newer systems are rated higher, note that the RX-V1 spec is still at .015% THD. Since 2003 or so, the many "flagship-system" manufacturer rating standards have diluted how important it is to have more pure sound over sheer power.
Summary: clean,crisp sound with amazing detail.yamaha is the leader in hi fi and this receiver is just a sample of why.yamaha brings so many features to the table including cinema dsp (their own sound feilds)and presence (a extra set of front speakers for their sound feilds).this receiver had audiophile reviews stating that it sounded like a much more expensive unit !!
Summary: Everything about this receiver is built like a tank. There was no expense spared , thats why it cost so much back in the day. It will drive any speakers to rock concert levels, loud and clear.
Summary: Hi The RX-V1 is really one a new classic of this time where is more hard to find receivers with the power & fidelity from the golden era of HiFi, is incredible when you find in the users manual that only have 110 watts per channel RMS at 8 Ohms, but when you compare with the RX-V2400 (120 WPC) RX-V2500 (130WPC) RX-V2600 (130 WPC) you can find that only is a reference number, with this receiver your walls will literally rumble, it have a bass extension switch that is like...
Summary: I JUST RECIEVED THE RECIEVER A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO AND I HAVE TO SAY I'M BLOWN AWAY TO SAY THE LEAST. FIRST OF ALL, THIS THING IS HEAVY. NOT THAT WEIGHT IS THE STANDARD THAT HOME AUDIO IS MEASURED BY BUT IT FORTOLD ME A LITTLE OF WHAT I WAS IN FOR. AFTER SETTING UP AND PUTTING IN MY FIRST CD, I BEGUN TO HEAR LITTLE DETAILS IN THE MUSIC THAT I'D ONLY HEARD THROUGH STUDIO MONITORS OR HIGH QUALITY HEAD PHONES. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HOW CLEAN THE YAMAHA RX-V1 SOUNDS.
Summary: Excellent receiver-very clean in 2 channel mode. Power is very under rated by Yamaha's specs. Drives my B&W 604s3 's with ease. Surround sound is amazing. My setup is B&W 604S3 front,B&W CDMNT center,ADS L880 rear and Sunfire signature sub. I'm using TosihibaXA2 as DVD source and Krell CDDSP as cd source.
