Summary: This is a great 5.1 amp for a secondary system. It doesn't have the "everything but the kitchen sink" Onkyo spec list, but what it does have it does very well. I like this receiver quite a bit!
Summary: I purchased this as I'm building my first component system, I love Yamaha products, and the price is right. I have been completely happy with my purchase thus far. The system was easy to set up, intuitive, sounds absolutely killer through my 5.1 system, and is very aesthetically pleasing. I also love the FOUR HDMI inputs it offers, a huge step up from what I was using previously.
Summary: I purchased one new previously and now bought one used for another place. The price at Amazon had risen since my first purchase so I bought a used one at ebay this time. Good features and sound working with an entertainment center. I don't use the FM much. It's a bit complicated to configure for an old guy but working with the instructions I can get the right source connection for the input.
Summary: Just bought this to replace an Onkyo (THX receiver) that lasted about 2 weeks. Unfortunately with the Junkyo, I didn't set it up right away and could not return it anymore. Anyway, back to this Yamaha review. What made me decide on a Yamaha is the reviews. I know that all products gets 1 stars as well as 5 stars, so I decided to see the percentage of 1 stars to 5's.
Summary: It has everything that you want as well as it is easy to you. I had a Sony unit and I always had problems with it. This unit performs like a champ. If you want something that is easy and simple, this unit is for you.
Summary: ITS A GOOD product and the price is right.yamaha makes ther own parts.for the price its the best.The thing I dislike is the TV line in for RCA jacks to get that line working you have to ues the remot .the remot is eez to ues.
Summary: I had to upgrade the guts of my HT system when the old 32" tube finally died! I moved from a Denon AV2800 that originally cost me $800 quite a long time ago, to this unit for $169! While this is at the entry level of this line for Yamaha, I was sticking with 5.1 and had no need for the extra features (like Pandora streaming) as you moved up the line.
Summary: ill summ it up. this receiver for the price is well worth the money. yes there is the newer 473 version and in a few months probyel a newer version yet . i have the rxv 671 with eathernet capabilty which i use . ive owned yamaha recevers since the late 1980s . this recever the 371 has the 4 hdmi inputs 1 out ypal of setting up your sound all the dsp modes for surround eather movies or music 5.1 or two channel stereo. which ever way you want to use it you can.
