Good only for two years.

Fernando Feijo, Amazon
23 September 2008
  • Summary: Got mine in Amazon on July, '06. All was fine until a few weeks ago, when the HDMI-out port died. With my components all HDMI-based, losing that port was tantamount to losing the product. I replaced the receiver with a Denon, and all clicked again.

Everything Yamaha Promised. Looks and Sounds Great!!

TJ Thelen, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: I have always been a big fan of Yamaha and never have been disappointed. When I was looking at purchasing a new receiver I looked at a few brands. I was mostly interested in the video side of things but wanted great audio as well.

Absolutely Perfect

G. Hellings, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: I recently bought this unit. I am completely pleased. The upscaling is perfect, not a hint of distortion. The sound is incredible. I've long felt that receivers either were meant for movies, or music, not both. This one does both incredibly well. It's 7 channel stereo is incredible.

Good for Audio Not Video

George, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: I got this unit 6 years ago and it is never able to handle video correctly. The upscaling is a joke. The video output quality is worse than the input. So now I use it as a pure audio amplifier.

Awesome Receiver - Flawless

terster, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: I have had this receiver for 5 years now and it has worked perfectly. This receiver is a true hi fidelity monster! The weight of this receiver is almost 2x more than any other receiver i've ever owned. It's also physically larger too, due to the Class A amplifiers.

After seven years, finally retired - not enough HDMI inputs

Dan Lebryk, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: In it's day this was a very advanced high end receiver. It was the second wave of HDMI switchers, at an affordable price point - not $3,000. Today, these sale prices make this receiver an amazing deal. February 22, 2013 Update: Wow I can't believe I've had this receiver 7 years.

Shuts down randomly? For this price?

Matthew, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: Sorry Yamaha - you screwed the pooch on this one. For this price I would expect it to stay running ALL THE TIME. But alas, no go after the first year of supreme performance. Seems like as soon as the warranty was over it started randomly shutting down whenever it wanted. I won't buy another Yamaha.

20 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Nach Lektüre diverser Prospekte, der Aussattungslisten und diversen Tests der aktuellen Heimkino-Receiver Oberklasse, habe ich mich der Papierform halber überzeugt und bei einem Internet-Versender den Yamaha RX-V 2600 geordert ohne ihn vorher gehört zu haben, weder in einem Elektronikmarkt (dort...
