Summary: Well now, hard for me to add more than many others have written in here. But for the record, this item has proven to be one of my best investments so far. I have 9 speakers + 2 subwoofers powered by this system; 2 Definitive Mythos4 + 7 kef KHT Series + 2 SW. tough I have to choose between presence and surround back, the sound clarity and output power is still great. Hard to setup network, not a very reliable USB some flash drives just don't work.
No prior receiver experience easy to use and install

Summary: First receiver I have ever purchased and installed. It took a little while to read each step of the instruction manual and complete each step. But it was very easy to complete. This has exceeded our family's home theater expectations! The auto calibration made a big improvement to the listening quality. I purchased based on on-line reviews and recommended by a friend. I had a dedicated 20 amp electrical outlet installed to make sure the receiver had plenty of power.
Summary: I looked and researched many A/V receivers before deciding on this one. I am very pleased with the sound, ease of use, and many, many features. This unit is well worth the price paid, I would recommend to anyone looking for a powerhouse A/V controller. I have mine connected to a 50" plasma TV and a Yamaha upconverting DVD player.
Summary: I have owned Yamaha receivers for 20 years, and this is my fourth. Every time, I look at competitors' products, but I always come back to Yamaha for the sound quality and versatility. As with all of my previous Yamahas, this receiver is almost perfect, with just a few minor issues. Sound quality is outstanding, with crisp highs and clear lows (I have Klipsch floor speakers and rear and center channel, no subwoofer).
Summary: JUST received this receiver yesterday kind of a bugger to set up.but let it be known DO NOT USE YPAO MICROPHONE!it sucks it did more harm than good. it did well setting speaker distance and wiring.but everything else it messed up my subwoofer settings and rear channels and main had wrong sizes for speakers just use manual setup and set it to your liking.but now that i did everything manually this receiver has brutal power and clarity.it will take your breath away on...
Summary: This was the first AV receiver that I purchased in over 20 years. Lots of bells and whistles; some I have already played with (network radio, USB connection, HDMI upconversion) and some that I am still waiting to try (PC music, multi-zone multi-input). No problems so far just have a lot to time to peruse the owners manual and discover all of the features.
Summary: Excellent product. Bought this as a replacement for my RX-V2095 and once again, Yamaha has come through. Very easy to set up, sounds great. The one area that needs work is the speed and GUI of the Network functionality (the abiility to play MP3s over your home network). Other than that, it is a great receiver.
Summary: Outstanding receiver - good power - love the HDMI connections - wonderful array of spatial sound choices (i.e. - Live Club to Church in Zurich - actually sounds like these acoustic spaces). The diversity of the selections of spatial sound is over the top. I am very pleased with this receiver. Perfect for any home theater. Borders on audiophile quality.
Summary: This receiver is a true workhorse offerring all the A/V inputs/outputs that you'll ever need. Sound quality is comparable if not equal to much more expensive professional high-end receivers out there. Being able to connect it to the home network and play your MP3 collection straight from your computer is a nice touch.
