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.
Summary: This is my second Yamaha Receiver, and I do like the way they sound. Although boxing for shipment was very good, the receiver smelled strongly of tobacco smoke, which was very disappointing. The smell has faded, but I am still sore about it. Beware, may be something we can do about this problem. I do not need internet on my receiver.
Summary: This is an awesome system that provides excellent sound for music and dialogue. I never set up a surround system before which made some of the options a bit confusing to me. However, the dvd provided with the product provides step by step instructions to lead you through the installation. I am still awed by the sound reproduction this system provides for movie watching.
Summary: It's a Yamaha, what more can I say. I have 3 Yamaha home theater receivers dating as far back as 2005 and they all still exceed expectations. This particular unit is hooked to 2 big 8 speaker tower speakers in front and 2 Bose book shelf speakers in the rear and make The Elder Scrolls Skyrim really rock out.
Summary: Had this unit for less then 6 mos. and it quit working, nothing, no power what so ever, completely dead. Now have to go through the rigorous process of packing it back up and sending it back on my dollar. Also believe I will only get credit for a portion of the full purchase price, bummer. This is the first time i have gotten a bad seed over the inter web, oh well you will get burned every now and then.
Summary: Device looks sharp, sounds good, and has the power to fill a room. When compared against the smaller 3xx version it blows it away easily. Make sure to provide proper ventilation (as with all amplifiers this box gives off a bit of heat (both sub woofer, and receiver) so it needs room to convect.
