Terrible for FM reception

L. Freese "Soulcommander", Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: I have always been a Yamaha fan however this is the WORST receiver when it comes for pulling in FM local stations. As far as the performance on HDTV XBOX PS3 its good but the pass through feature does not work with my Motorola cable box. Not at all happy about that since I wanted to use my TV sometimes without having to turn on the receiver and basting everything through the speakers.

OK, but not great.

  • Summary: I bought this unit to add surround sound to a second room in my house. The unit has a clean look and a large number of features. Sound quality is decent, better than a lot of other units in this price range, but not great. The audio is very clean, no hiss at all, however it's seems to run out of power quickly. (Doesn't feel like a 100+ watt amplifier.

HDMI inputs Quit working after 6 months

  • Summary: I was really pleased with this for the first six months I had it. Now I cannot watch My HDMI inputs the receiver will play for 20 seconds to a minute and then shuts itself off. After that point every time you turn it on it shuts itself off. (Update it is fixed) After days off research I found out this is a nice little bug with the circuits.

Not Yamaha quality

Hex "Hexen525", Amazon

  • Summary: First off, let me say this is the 4th RX-V series receiver I have owned from Yamaha and by far the most generic one (considering it has an MSRP of $1000). Unlike some other receivers from Yamaha, this one is rated 120w @ 1KHz, not the 20-20K they usually rate power from. So expect this one to be MUCH quieter than an older RX-V 100w rated @ 20-20k.
