THX Dolby sounds incredible. Amazing clarity and plenty of power. Get1
9 April 2013
Summary: I would be lost without the user guide. This receiver is packed with features. It could use more HDMI inputs, but for now it has what I need. The sound is what you would expect from Yamaha, clear and defined. Watching movies at home will never be the same. Also, I like my home stereo to be very heavy, for two reasons. The first reason is, heavy usually means solid construction with massive power. The second reason is, it's harder to steal.
Summary: I purchased my first Yamaha "stereo" receiver in 1977 . At that time it was the coolest thing I had purchased along with the Phillips 870 turntable to spin the albums. Since I have owned several Yamaha receivers. All have been high end. I purchased this receiver to replace my aging basement unit DSP-3090.Nothing functionally wrong with the 3090, just wanted to upgrade to new technology.
Summary: This receceiver sounds great and has plenty of power to push my klipsch speakers. The auto sound set up is easy and qwik. It has more features than you could ask for. It also looks great in my entertainment center. I replaced my Sony receiver with this one and I can tell a big differance in sound quality. I am won over by Yamaha sound quality and will purchase another one in the future. If you are considering a Yamaha receiver I would recomend the RX series to anyone.
Summary: in the sub 1k selection there are many contenders, but only a small handful of players. This offering from yamaha is the best "bang for the buck" ... the pioneer elite series is nice and I personally like the Dennon stuff, but they're spotty with reliability and to my ears the Yamaha wooped the Pioneer when it came to audio, ... I am one of those underprivileged people that has to utilize his Receiver for both film and music..
Summary: I bought this about a year ago and it is just the best. the sound is incredible. The YPAO automatic acoustic equalizer is an awesome feature that automatically adjusts your speakers and puts them in sync. the video quality is great and the RX-V2600 has plenty of inputs for all of your electronic equipment. This is by far the best receiver i have encountered so far.
Summary: I have thoroughly enjoyed this purchase. After reading all the reviews, the only models highly rated in this price range were this Yamaha and the Denon. I picked this model because of the far better on screen display and the video upconversion. The sound is about the same. Since getting it I have had no problems.
Summary: 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 nicht vorhanden), noch bei mir zuhause.
