Summary: Like all new tech ages quickly this sweet unit is showing retirement age in A/v both due to not being able to handle 1080p and defiantly not 3d out of date but still good for an old setup or a non A/v setup ass it a sweet sounding amp and runs dam hot due to it amps but that a worth it for it sound
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.
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.
