Good unit. Small annoyances.

Nic Boyer, Amazon
7 September 2014
  • Summary: Good receiver with good sound. Annoying habit of not picking up signal from my Dish 922 box if the Dish box is turned on before the TV. This happened with more than one TV. Also seems to want to default to AV4 after turning on other HDMI streams, but is a minor annoyance.

  • Summary: Everything looked perfect with this receiver and powered up fine but it had a C stock sticker on it which means no warranty. Amazon was happy to exchange it for a different model and covered the return shipping

Ease of use....good sound quality...many features

  • Summary: This was purchased to replace an Audiovox home theater unit. That unit was buggy, and difficult to operate. This was very easy to setup and operate. It has many music presets and connections. The network setup was fast and easy. All in all a no-brainer at the price point.

Decent machine

  • Summary: Accompanying iPhone app is the star of the show. It can wake the receiver and do pretty much everything from the phone: input, DSP, scene, all the audio options, a digital d-pad and remote, and more. Picture this..

Great value, good service

  • Summary: This unit found its place in my "high end" home theater audio system as a step down from separate components that died of old age. Before I purchased the Yamaha, I had briefly used an Onkyo receiver. It sounded decent, but died well before its time.

does what it's supposed to

  • Summary: I haven't even gotten through all the features yet. The only disappointment is that if you have a DVD player with component video, then it doesn't switch that to the HDMI out. You have to use the component video out of the unit. Otherwise the sound is stellar.

  • Summary: great receiver, the only problem is you cannot get 2 channels, like an outside set of speakers separately. Besides that it is great.

Finally fixed Subwoofer to really PUMP and SHAKE

Anthony Wages "thunderstar", Amazon

  • Summary: First, I really loved the quality of sound from playing my music CDs through this receiver. I also love the Airplay feature and have bookmarked several streaming radio stations from around the world - excellent. However, the YPAO automatic configuring of speakers is worthless.

  • Summary: Got this for a good price. Much cheaper than the Sony I replaced. I wanted an option for Pandora but those receivers were all much more expensive. However this one does have Internet radio with a good selection of stations so I don't miss Pandora after all.
  • Pros: Setup went easily enough. Things worked when plugged in the way I expected. I like the remote. Buttons are laid out nicely, very intuitive. Much better than the Sony remote I replaced with lots of confusing acronyms on the buttons. It has lots of inputs. This was a feature I searched quite a whil...
  • Cons: I was hoping this device would take composite and component video signals and route them out the HDMI. It does not seem to do that. So I need 3 sets of cables to my projector: HDMI, Component, and Composite. Tried to use this with an HDMI to DVI adaptor connected to a DVI to HDMI cable to a proje...
