Summary: just like to say,got this at christmas as part of making a home theater for my family.combined with tivo premier and polk surround sound in wall speakers and sony tv and blu ray,OUTSTANDING!!sound is excellent,fairly easy to use once you get used to it.well worth what i paid,considering now its about double what i paid for it in dec 2010.subwoofer hooked up it all feels like you are right in the action!
Summary: I have, for a long time, wanted a reciever as capabale as this unit. Not only do I get to hook up all of my equipment, I now can listen to vinyl. Phono is what was, but quite a few of us still have a large collection of records. And, along with multitude of connections, it is a system to build upon. Did I mention HD/FM, "REAL COOL".
Summary: What a sound! This AV delivers you a great performance, whith a powerfull presence. I dont care about 3D and video upcale, im concerned about the sound, and for that i totally recomend this unit.
Summary: I bought this receiver to replace a Pioneer receiver that lasted one week after the warranty expired. I found this on sale for a very good price. It is a more high end receiver than the Pioneer it replaced. It has features I really wanted that I didn't think I could afford when I bought the Pioneer last year. Overall it sounds very good, is easy to setup and I'm very happy with it so far.
Summary: Estimados, después de haber escuchado un sin número de receptores de audio y video, quedo sorprendido por el rendimiento de este equipo. Analizo como esta marca YAMAHA se ha superado en el transcurso de estos años y ahora no solo tiene los mejores procesadores -como los tuvo siempre- sino que también se diferencia por la exquisita fineza sonora de esta máquina.
Summary: We needed a high power amp to drive our power hungry speakers, as well as a way to integrate the speakers with our DVD and CD players and our home theater. After researching receivers, we chose the Yamaha. It is everything we needed, and we got the bonus of all the extra features that Yamaha provides. Two examples: the automatic venue-imitating feature is a great novelty and the room optimization set-up works flawlessly.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy Setup, Good audio, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Good video integration, Great Sound Quality
Summary: This is one receiver I plan on keeping for a long time. I've been trying several receivers over the past 3-4 years and I feel as if I finally found one that does pretty much everything I want & does it very well! The positives are great sound & power, plenty of inputs for HDMI, fantastic upscaling to 1080p for my Tivo which is 1080i, plenty of sound modes, the list goes on.
Summary: I could not be happier with this unit. It is spectacular! Numerous inputs, HDMI that works without hassles, HD up-converting so I don't have to pay for HD TV, and it even calibrates itself using the included microphone. This receiver is at the high-end of the mid-range of receivers. There are cheaper units out there (that aren't nearly as good), and there are better units out there (that cost several times more). But for the money it is very difficult to beat this unit.
Summary: replaced a DSP A970 had for 11 years, this unit is absolutely great.Yamaha quality top to bottom. used the auto speaker setup worked great. Manuel is typical, have to read the whole thing,no issue with a new toy!! great price from EXPO.You wont be disappointed with this unit.
