DO NOT BUY

Greg O., Newegg
29 September 2014
  • Summary: Buying this receiver is roughly equivalent to dowsing $180 worth of cash in gasoline and starting a small bonfire outside your home.
  • Pros: Sounded okay while it worked
  • Cons: Dies after one year. Wish I had noticed the other reviews that mention this "issue".

Difficulties

David Mangels, Amazon
28 July 2013
  • Summary: Had trouble getting the amp to work with video inputs other than HDMI. Also had trouble with HDMI as well. Changing the volume cut out the video image for 10-15 seconds. Definitely, not user friendly. Should have been easy to with different inputs and outputs but such was not the case.

Audio not synced with video

Anonymous, Newegg
28 February 2013
  • Summary: Great unit for audio only. The latency for the video sync is enough for me to return this. Also, it's not my setup. I had a Sony before this that blew out and never had this issue.
  • Pros: Sounds good for the price
  • Cons: The biggest issue is the latency on this unit. (Latency is a delay between the time that audio should come out of the unit vs the time it actually plays, measured in milliseconds, for those who don't know ;) ) The first thing that I tested on this receiver was the HDMI pass through. I noticed a s...

TV won't start if receiver turned on first

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 January 2013
  • Summary: A bothersome quirk we discovered with the Yamaha 373 was that if the receiver is turned on first, and then the cable box and TV is turned on, the TV goes on but immediately turns to a black screen.

Good, but sound quality is loaw

dolon, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: I had an RX440 before, but because of the HDMI I needed to upgrade.I bought the 373, but it is far away of sound quality from the previous. It sounds like no power. My speakers for 4-8ohm, but it seems to be this amplifier cannot drive them. Very low sound even when you put -20db.

Das Problem heißt HDMI

birragrande, Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: Wie hätte ich ahnen sollen, das ein hochwertiges Gerät eines renommierten Herstellers trotz aller Qualität und Vorteile doch versagen kann? Unglaublich. Nun, alle guten Kritiken hier stimmen im Grunde. Das Gerät ist einfach in der Bedienung, quasi Plug and Play.
