Summary: I bought this system on March 15, 2011. Let me start by saying that the service department at Amazon was exceptional. Amazon gave me the Yamaha support center number and I waited 27 minutes without an operator picking up to respond. The HDMI outlet in the Yamaha receiver stopped working completely. I read many of the reviews on this product and it seems that a lot of professional evaluators have given their opinion. I would love to see an end user give their opinion.
