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..
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.
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 , which is a very nice receiver, but I wanted something with a bit more high-current ability to drive the new speakers.
Summary: i had just got my hands on this unit finally! been waiting forever for it! My initial thoughts are: awesome! the images on my look just amazing via the V1800. i am struggling a bit with the woofer still. Can't get it to work. BUt overall i like it. i will write more on this soon.
Summary: I have this unit six months. It was a replacement for an RX-V992 I had for eleven years. The replacement was due to technology as the RX-V992 was still operating well. This receiver has met all of my expectations and then some.
Summary: I replaced a 9 year old Pioneer Elite receiver with the Yamaha. Setup was very easy. The manual is a bit challenging but you have to remember it does a lot; it's a good balance between a manual written for a novice and a guru. I paired this with a new set of Apirion speakers and subwoofer.
Summary: With 4 HDMI inputs, sound decoding for DTS Master Audio and Dolby True HD, and an amazing amount of extras, plus a menu that allows you to adjust most everything, this is the best receiver I have ever owned. It also upconverts anything to 1080p, and does a nice job of it too.
Summary: I just replaced an Onkyo TXSR875 with the Yamaha RX-V1800BL. Right out of the box hookup was a breeze and it recognized ALL my speakers with the auto setup. I am very pleased with this system and will recommend it to all! Amazon got it to me in two days in perfect condition.
