Summary: I'm so glad that I purchased the Yamaha RX V361 5.1 Channel 100 Watt Receiver from this vendor. The device was super clean. I had a hard time determining whether the receiver was new or not, It was just that clean. From a functionality standpoint..."Everything worked as advertised". I highly recommend this vendor to anyone interested enough to read this review. Good work!!! I hope to do more business with you in the near future!!!
Summary: Old school is sometimes better. I have a state of the art Sony wireless speaker surround with 1100 watts. It's a great unit but when it comes to clean, powerful sound it's hard to beat these older units.It's not as pretty or sleek and I do have to run wires but when you hook up some real speakers instead of these little surround speakers, you get rich, full sound in every corner of the room.
Summary: Purchased this receiver from BestBuy, frankly this is one of the best receivers I have owned. The sound quality is very impressive. The built of the unit looks solid. The remote control is pretty user friendly. I use it with Klipsch 5.1 speaker system... awesome combination! I used the auto sound calibration function, it worked like a charm. Extremely happy with this purchase!
Summary: Make sure you get a remote for this unit. Download the owners manual. You will need it. This is an exception high current receiver. I found that you will definitely need to have 6 speaker. 2 front, 2 rear, a center channel and a subwoofer to get the highest quality sound.
Summary: I really love this receiver. I bought one a couple of years ago to power some speakers in college apartment and it did a great job (especially for the price). I enjoyed it enough that when I was building an entertainment system for my girlfriend's apartment at the end of the year, I bought a second one to power her audio. In my opinion, it helps you get the most out of your speakers without all the extras that, at least in my case, were not necessary.
Summary: I was completely new to the big scary audio world before this purchase, but I've been very pleased with this receiver thus far. I chose this particular receiver for a few reasons: the price point is very good, Yamaha is a recognized name, and it seemed to have most of the connections that I thought I would use. I'm running a pair of 3-way Yamaha speakers and the receiver produces more than adequate power.
Summary: The unit puts out good sound and works well. Major drawback is that the setup instructions are terrible, and the setup itself is unbelievably complicated. Also, the buttons described in the instructions do not match the buttons on the remote control although it says it is the same unit. Setting this unit up with different buttons than described in the instructions is an effort in futility.
Summary: i'm no technophile, so maybe this isn't the highest quality receiver on the market, but it's been an excellent purchase. i had no problems making all the connections; it works with all of my other components. i'm very pleased.
Summary: Yamaha RX-V361BL 500 Watt 5.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver I find receiver to work just fine in switching audio to DD from Pro-Logic or anyother switching needed. Menu and settings are quickly learned and much simpler than my past 2- Kenwood Receivers. Sound is percise with quite an adjustment range. Quite a piece of equipment for the price. I will buy Yamaha next time I upgrade.
