Summary: I was intimidated at first by this unit's weight and all of the connections! Once I started to hookup speakers, all of my equipment, and begin the learning process; It came to me, Where have I been? I found a Gold Mine of value, listening pleasure, and a great Bonanza!
If you forgot the HDMI is an excellent HT Receiver
8 September 2009
Summary: One of the best Reveicers Yamaha was made, if you forgot the need of the HDMI ports & you just like the audio, it can be one of the best choices to buy, this receiver are THX certified when the newest except the RX-V2600 are not, the power output is excellent & sound powerfull & cristal clear sound, even sound good in the stereo mode with large speakers, is just the balance betwen cost & quality, if you found one below 200 take it is an excellent choice.
Summary: As one that simply loves electronics, I was happy to get this receiver. Granted it does not have HDMI, but so what - the difference between component and HDMI is 1080i and 1080p (seen side by side you would be hard pressed to see any difference). The whole downside to purchasing this receiver is that I now need to buy better speakers as my old ones cannot handle the power...
Summary: My best friend (who lives just across the street) owns the Yamaha RXV1900 Home Theater Receiver that he paid well over $1200.00 + taxes for. Both recevers are rated at 130 watts per channel. After listening to his and my Yamaha RX V2500, in the same living area, using the same speakers, I'm convinced my Yamaha RX V2500 puts out better sound quality even without the MDMI hook-ups his has.
Summary: Wow! What a difference over my old Sony home theater in a box receiver. The surround fields came to life when I hooked up the Yamaha. The receiver is built like a tank but is very sleek. The setup was a piece of cake and the GUI is very user friendly.
