  • Summary: A pain in the butt to set up, but I think most receivers probably are. Very satisfied now that all the connections are made.

Not if you listen to FM.........

  • Summary: I bought this unit here a month ago. I completely overlooked that I listen to FM radio many MANY more hours than I watch movies or TV. I live in a fringe FM reception area, so a really good tuner section on an A/V receiver is critical for me (as I said, something I totally forgot). I set this unit up easily, the mic.

Works as advertised

CincyTriGuy, Amazon
4 April 2010
  • Summary: I needed to replace a 10 year old JVC A/V receiver with one that had HDMI switching. I have a DVD player and a Scientific Atlanta 8300HDC HD cable box from Time Warner. Both components send their video directly to my LCD TV and their audio goes to the receiver, which my speakers are connected to.

Probably Damaged

Donald Vining "DV2", Amazon
1 February 2010
  • Summary: I originally decided to get an AV/R because my current setup, which consists of an inexpensive mixer/console driving a pair of powered studio monitor speakers, lacked a remote control capability and didn't particularly look very good in my living room. Also I recently added a Panasonic BD player and was very impressed with the audio quality over the HDMI connection to the TV compared to that of my old, pre-HDMI DVD player.

Terrible

Dr. BT, Amazon
31 January 2010
  • Summary: I purchased the Yamaha RX-V465BL 525 along with the Klipsche HD500 for $700 bundle. Let me say that my old $300 Sony mini system sounds way better. I had blindly purchased this bundle without doing some homework or testing at the stores. I don't really know if its really the receiver or speakers but they're both worthless. First the Yamaha Receiver doesn't have too many options as far as equilizer (you get just the Treble and Bass).

The Manual from Hell/the Receiver from Hell

D. Carter "Smoky Mountain Carpenter", Amazon
12 January 2010
  • Summary: I had owned a Yamaha AV receiver (which had to be repaired twice in the three years I owned it before it crashed and burned completely), but--sucker that I am--I decided I had just been unfortunate enough to get a lemon. I would give Yamaha one more shot because I liked the features, at least as they were described in various reviews, CNET, And then I sat down and began reading the manual.
