Great Receiver! Still waiting on remote from seller.

Summary: I love the receiver it works great I have it hooked up to my TV and Xbox and I use the line in with my laptop for music. Functions seem awesome but unfortunately they didn't ship the remote with the receiver so I can't do very much to play with it.
Summary: I got this receiver to replace an older receiver for my parents after they got their first HDTV for Christmas and the sound quality has been great as far as I can tell (I am not a sound engineer or audiophile).
Summary: Great integration of HDMI HD, and audio for a home theater system. Just the basics for great sound. My only complaint, speaker connections are way closer together than they need to be, making connections a chore, and the spring loaded connections for the vital center speaker are just cheap.
Summary: I took advantage of a mark down when a newer version of this receiver was released by Yamaha and placed my order from Amazon. The unit arrived very well packaged with the original manufacturer's box placed inside a larger contained and surrounded with brown packing paper.
Great for those who want a quality receiver at a great price.

Summary: I'm very pleased with this receiver, so much so that I ordered a second one. It does lack the auto speaker calibration feature of that the V471 has, as well as the Pioneer VSX-521. IMO, this is an overblown feature.
Summary: Did some research before buying and the pro reviews convinced me this was just what I was looking for. Sound is awesome, no matter what I'm watching or listening to. Set up was very easy, up and running in less than half an hour. Connections simple.
Summary: I bought this to replace my Denon AVR-1910. I knew I would be stepping down in terms of quality&performance but I seem to like this receiver better than my Denon! Yes, this is an entry-level receiver but it's great for anyone wanting to step into HT for the first time.
Summary: habe ihn amazon typisch im eiltempo zugeschickt bekommen. was man als erstes sagen kann ist: wer bisher nur einen stereo receiver besessen hat, in meinem fall 15 jahre, ist erstmal ziemlich überfordert mit den ganzen anschluss und klang einstellungen die wirklich enorm sind.
Summary: Nach ca 2 Jähriger 5.1 Abstinenz hatte ich beschlossen wieder einen preiswerten 5.1 Receiver anzuschaffen. Schnell wurde klar, dass sich die Receiver der großen Hersteller in dieser Preisklasse nicht viel geben. Da der Yamaha aus meiner Sicht das beste Design bietet entschied ich mich für ihn.
