Good Sound But Poor Programming

David, Amazon
25 October 2011
  • Summary: Have had this receiver for over 5 years now. This amplifier has ability to adjust the electronic equalizer as the volume changes. However, it does a VERY POOR job of this. Unfortunately, this ability is not adjustable to personal preferences. I have expensive, great-sounding Klipsch speakers. When I turn up the volume, the high frequencies are much too loud.

Will Always Use Yamaha Receiver/Amplifiers

CRAB, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: I have tried other brands of Receivers but like Yamaha the best. I like their natiural sound. THis RX-V1700 is no different. I has good power, nice features, and lives up to the Yamaha name. I could have bought a brand new receiver but opted for a higher quality receiver for the same money by buying used. The same principle lots of people use for buying nice cars. I will buy the AVENTAGE RX-A3010 in a couple of years!

A great receiver!!!!!

C. Kelly, Amazon

  • Summary: I paid 400.00 for this on Amazon aroeund 2 years ago and it has not let me down. I have ownwd many Yamaha reveivers and all have been excellent. One of my units I bought back in 1986 and it still works great. Yamaha has always been a good brand and will continue to be. This unit is no different. A short story. One day I was at a great buy center and one of the customer was looking at a 900 yamaha amp. This amp had a bunch of knobs on the front.

Great sound

M. Leefar, Amazon
20 May 2008
  • Summary: I used to sell audio equipment but even found this very tough to set up. Some of the people at their customer service talked to me like I was a moron. I finally got a decent person on the phone and got it set up correctly......It sounds fantastic, but be warned is difficult to set up.

Outstanding Value for Top Rate Receiver

Value Audiophile, Amazon
24 April 2008
  • Summary: Purchased this unit in March, 2008 to replace a basic 60 watt/channel Yamaha A/V receiver that was approximately 7 years old. Difference in sound is notably better - this unit delivers oustanding sound. The digital sound processing features actually add to the experience. I compared 130 watt/channel receivers with 75 watt/channel units head to head and decided that the extra power made a notable difference.

Great Deal

  • Summary: This receiver is awesome. It's last year's model but it doesn't feel out of date at all. It doesn't support HDMI 1.3 but if you do your research you'll see that you probably don't need HDMI 1.3 anyway. The audio quality is great. I have it hooked up to some pretty big floorstanding speakers and it has more than enough power to drive them. The video switching works very well. I only need one single HDMI cable from the receiver to the TV, it looks very clean.

the right choice for me

john c., Amazon
25 October 2007
  • Summary: The 7 band equalizer makes all the difference for me.I am able to adjust each speaker individually for all 7 bands as well as volume output.My subwoofer sounds much better using line {pre-amp} out jacks,rather than speaker line out.I like hearing 7.1 channel stereo while listening to songs,and surround sound from dvd movies is awesome too.

Sounds Great

S. Shelton "shellseaker", Amazon
28 September 2007
  • Summary: We now get the full surround sound effect. It is complicated to set up and we are still figuring it out, but we do get better sound effects than we were getting with our older Yamaha receiver

User Review

apexracer a AudioPhile, Audio Review
4 July 2007
  • Summary: sold everything I had on my previous setup and started from scratch. I wanted a receiver with ultimate flexibility, that could double as a solid pre-amp as I move into seperates later (when $$ allows). The build quality of this unit is superb. The front is solid steel, the volume control is solid steel, the front panel cover moves with elegance. It looks good, it sounds good, and it works good. You get plenty of features for the money.
