Summary: I'm loving this receiver every time I listen to musics, watch blue-ray movie or TV. I have Bose sound system I used with Kenwood receiver and thought Bose is just another name brand. I wasn't impressed with the sound with my old receiver till I hook this up to Yamaha rv-1900.
Summary: This reciever looks sharp, is weighty and has a tremendous feel of quality, and is just a great reciever all around. Plus I got it for a great price. It pairs nicely with my Infinity Classia surround system I bought off Amazon as well
Summary: I'm very pleased with the Yamaha RX-1900 receiver. I've put it thru many tests and tried all kinds of equipment with it. I have had no problems at all. I can highly recommend this receiver to anyone.
Pros: This receiver really does everything right. Setup is easy but very detailed. Pro on screen volume. Even with composite hook ups. A lot of receivers I looked at didn't have this. The FM radio with HD Radio is really good. I can pickup almost every station in my area. The audio is really nice on th...
Cons: The setup menu could have been made nicer looking. Has the old black back ground look. Although it very complete and fairly easy to use. The remote could have been made better. It does pretty much everything I need it to do. But it seems dated. Setting up FM radio presets could have been made eas...
Summary: I've been researching for the last couple months wanting to upgrade from my Marantz 5002 and it came down to the Denon AVR3310ci and this. Both were being discontinued and just about half price so I bought both figuring I'd sell the one I don't want to keep to a customer.
Pros: User friendly, lots of power, uncolored, clean and neutral sound.
Cons: Runs a little hot but I guess that's what you get with 130 watts x 7.
Summary: Buy this for it's sound quality and not it's video features. If you already have good video sources this unit works as a great HDMI switcher. The remote could be better. I give this 5 eggs because the sound quality makes up for the lack of better video technology.
Pros: Take a risk. This model has some reports of people getting bad units... but if you manage to get a good one, you will be amazed. I was trying to decide between this and this models replacement but at this price the few extra features and the nicer OSD isn't worth more than double the price. Sound...
Cons: Video scaler isn't so great with HDMI sources. (i.e. Cable box.) You are better letting the TV do it. The new model has HQV which is insanely better.
Summary: I purchased this unit on August 9, 2010 as a replacement for a DENON AVR-4802 7 Channel Surround Receiver which I gave to my cousin. Overall I was very happy with this model especially considering I paid less than $700 to replace a unit I bought new in 2001 or 2002 for over $2000.
Pros: Sounds great when it works. Tons of features for the price.
Cons: Audio dropouts start happening after the receiver has been on for 90miutes or so. Within 30 more minutes the audio dies altogether. Once the receiver has cooled down completely, the audio work again (for 90 minutes or so ...). This happens with all input sources. The receiver is in a cool room an...
Summary: I was a walking biilboard when shopping for AVR. I want a Denon AVR but after having to returned 2 brand new 3310ci due to the bad HD radio module, I settle for the Yamaha 1900. Boy, I am glad I did. My Hd radio works perfectly as near CD quality.
Pros: HD radio works as it should. Beautiful sounding if pairing with right speakers. I use all Mirage OMD speakers and I could not understand the word bright as some people describe the 1900 RXV. So if your system is bright , keep the Yammy and dump your speakers not your AVR.
Cons: Cheap top metal chasis. Come on Yamaha, the top case is as thin as paper and it 's wobbling just to have your hand laying on it. Kick up a knot and get some real metal chasis top.
Summary: The system is great but it takes some getting used to when you try to program the remote to customize it with your routine. Programming the am/fm stations seems to be the most challenging but I think I can master it okay, If you are in to this kind of equipment, you cannot go wrong buying a V1900...
