Well, technically it's an HTR-6190...

  • Summary: Same receiver...different model numbers. This is the fourth Yamaha receiver I've had in nine years. I keep upgrading. But every feature on every single one is still working fine. These babies hold up. I don't use even a tenth of the features on this unit...you really need to check out the manual to see what you can do. The programming menus are not self-evident and can be very confusing. And it's a royal pain that the menus can't be viewed using the HDMI output.

Loving so far for simple 5.1 setup.

Joshua R. McGavin "JoshMc", Amazon
2 September 2009
  • Summary: I've been using this unit for close to a year with fantasitic results using Klipsch speakers and a sony display(PS3 and Xbox 360). I'm building a house and want to wire areas for multizone listening. I plan on a theatre room in the basement and that is where unit will be kept, but want to have in-ceiling speakers in the upstairs rooms. Anyone with similar setup? Would like to know how well it works with unit so far from other listening areas.

Yamaha 3800 is like a mini PC

Chris Arford "CableDude", Amazon
10 July 2009
  • Summary: The Yamaha 3800 is a mulitasking beast. With it's 3 zone capability, I can, foir exampl, simultaneously listen to my USB thumbdrive on my porch, radio/tuner in the kitchen and a movie on 7.1 stereo in the family room. It's a breeze to hook up by using its array of HDMI ports. Sound reproduction is great. Remote control is slightly confusing but not overwhelming. I would recommend this to my friends and have sold this unit to my customers.

Great bargain while they last. BTB/WTW rgb fixed to.

26 February 2009
  • Summary: I recently upgraded to the Yamaha 6190 ( same as the 1800 ) a week ago from another Yamaha receiver, I have previously owned other brand receivers like the onkyo 604 and pioneers as well. right off the speaker connections are very close together and using premade speaker wires bare or with gold crimp on connectors is difficult, banana plugs are the way to go here.

Excellent next-gen home theatre hub

Joey Joe Joe Jr. Shabadoo, Amazon
18 December 2008
  • Summary: I recently replaced my old surround set up with a Polk 5.1 configuration, using RTI-A7 fronts, RTI-A3 rears, a CSI-A6 center and a PSW505 sub. I had been running these through a Yamaha RX-V659 , which is a very nice receiver, but I wanted something with a bit more high-current ability to drive the new speakers. I also wanted a receiver with HDMI inputs that handle both audio and video for the best possible sound and picture for HD A/V sources.

Can't get it to work. BUt overall i like it. i will write more on this soon. Guys if anyone can help me setup my mono woofer on this, i would appreciate it.

Nice price but....

R. Baker "I love rock and roll", Amazon
3 November 2008
  • Summary: I almost sent this back due to deceptive advertising. You will notice that the page for this reciever lists a feature that calls this a "Network" reciever. Not true for this model. The models above in price to this unit do have this feature whereas, you can plug USB devices directly into the unit. This model does not have that feature. The picture that is shown, is for the 3800 not the 1800. I decided to keep the unit though, as I got a great price.

Beware If You Have 120hz Refresh Rate TV

FanNoMore, Amazon
24 October 2008
  • Summary: I recently bought a Samsung 52" LCD TV with 120hz refresh rate. I bought the Yamaha RX-V1800 receiver because Yamaha claimed it would support that refresh rate. Well, I am very sad to say it does not! The most it would do was 60hz... very disappointing once you have had 120hz... believe me.
