Summary: In response to Cully, the RX-V3900 Does indeed have 7 amps and does indeed Mention on page 12 of the User Manual, that, Quote, "You can connect both surround back and presence speakers to this unit, however they do not output simultaneously. This unit automatically switches....
Summary: I have a critical ear and an engineer's knowledge of electronics and sound. It has good power and dynamics. I find the YPAO to do a remarkable job of balancing the speakers and it saves me much time that I would be tinkering with it.
Summary: There are plenty of reviews here that describe all the features of this receiver, so I will not go into that. I upgraded from a DSP-A3090. Well, shortly after the warranty on the 3900 expired, the power relays started shutting the unit off randomly. Now, I can barely get it to turn on.
Summary: I cannot say enough about this unit, the sound for movies is THE BEST. What an awesome unit. It has brought a smile to my face many many times . It is a TOP OF THE LINE RECEIVER from Yamaha, NO doubt. This is my second yammie and i will not buy another brand, it was worth every dime i paid for it.
Summary: Owned this receiver for almost a year now. Excellent sound for movies and music. Lots of power and it can get loud. Easy to setup. This is my first Yamaha. Didn't have any problem with this receiver so far.
Summary: This is the first high end receiver I have purchased. The difference is amazing as compared to the middle of the line receiver sold at the major retailers. The sound separation and quality is truly outstanding
Pure quality. Real talent went into designing this jewel

Summary: My second Yamaha receiver, and from my experience, I'll probably never buy any other brand. This device is amazing. Quality throughout. The sound is clean and smooth. (Don't let anyone tell you that there is no difference in sound quality between better amps!
Summary: Appears to be as stated. Have not had much time running through all processes. It is a great product for the money. Has all the features I wanted for my dedicated home theater. Sound options and quality are excellent. The Video has been excellent as far as I have been able to test.
