Summary: well, i went against all better judgement in purchasing a "new" receiver like this. had it pre-ordered. there are always issues right? ill say this, its a great receiver at the price. always loved yamaha's. the issue is when using a blu ray player at 1080p/60fps. it hiccups audio/video every few seconds. bypass the receiver and all is well. if i set the blu ray to stream 1080p/24fps, all is well again.
