  • Summary: Excellent system. I used it with my computer for about 2 year but it was kinda big for that small room. I know moved it to my TV where it fares much better. I may upgrade the speakers someday.

Yamaha A/V Receiver

John B. Phillips, Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Yamaha has done it again with this A/V receiver. We have been using it for over a year and have had no problems with it. It takes over as a Media Control Base and does the job well.

Sub woofer needs to woof louder

Seth, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: The system isn't bad. but it's not great. If you just want some sound, then sure. But the sub leaves a lot to be desired and I've definitely heard better surround quality. Since I live in an apartment, I'm living with the sub-par quality but in a few months, when we move out, we'll be upgrading to something more impressive.

Protective Mode shuts this down, but with 4 Ohm speakers.

PakiEngr "Engineer", Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: Worked for a few months, but now the protective mode comes on every few minutes. I checked the wiring to see if there was a short, but does not seem to be one. Defective or cheap soldering? Update: I have since realized that this is very sensitive to the resistance rating of 4 Ohms on my Polk Monitor 70's. But performs flawlessly on my Monitor Audio speakers which are 8 Ohms. I have increased ratings to 4 star.

Brilliant Piece of Home Theater

VikramBagri, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: Yamaha is one of the best out there for sound systems/home theaters. This set has the right balance of Bass and treble response from the speakers. Setup was easy to do and maintenance free operations. I would recomment people with $250-300 budgets to shell out $100-$150 bucks for the quality and peace of mind.

Wouldn't power on at all, defective.

C. Brooks, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • Summary: Opened the item NIB, set it up according to instructions, attempted to power it on according to instructions and heard two clicks (a relay no doubt). Tried again, two clicks. Third time, no clicks, nothing at all. No further signs of life were given by this piece of junk. Boxing it up and returning it. Definitely disappointed.

Very solid receiver

Mike Carlson, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: Very good performance for the price - have only used in 2 channel stereo mode, so it has a lot more features and capability than I really need, but it puts out pretty good sound quality, especially considering the reasonable price.

Nothing to complain about.

David, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: Set up was easy. Manual was a bit of a read but who reads that any how. I like the sound and for the price I couldn't expect more.
