Cons: 3 years old and already in the repair shop. We've only used it when watching movies on the big screen television once a week or every other week. Product died while watching a movie, not particular reason, blew out and never came back on.
Poor Receiver, invest in something other than Yamaha

Summary: I purchased this receiver based upon price and unfortunately, many reviews I read on line in June of this year (2015). This receiver .... for the lack of a better one word description, ........... SUCKS! We'll be watching TV and all of a sudden the receiver shuts off without any warning.
Summary: I am very disappointed with this receiver. It worked fine for about a year, then one day the receiver stopped transmitting video from the HDMI Out. After several calls to Yamaha customer service, they concluded that the unit was toast and that it would need to be repaired.
Pros: 2699%... Is this what you want? A percentage of 3000? If not, Street for this Yamaha receiver has worked extremely well! Easy set up, easy-to-use, a bit involved on the 5.1 surround sound but, nothing too serious. Plus… It broke about three months in, I called, I shipped, they fixed and they ship...
Summary: I purchased this to use as a substitute for an Onkyo HT-RC180 (sent for HDMI repair) in my mancave. I push a 7.2 system with PSB towers, midrange and rear surrounds. I have added two 10 inch powered subs and small wide left and rights.
View this if you've been having HDMI signal loss problems.

Summary: I purchased this receiver in November of 2012, and it has seen a great deal of use since then. The sound is great running through my Bose 5.1 surround system, and I love the various features upon which many users have already commented.
Summary: Well I took a chance on this refurb receiver and came up aces all around. Got this amp to build a 5.1 surround sound system for audio and home theatre system. Have had for about a year now and it has worked perfectly. It has many settings and variable concert sound modes.
