  • Summary: Excellent interoperability with Apple TV and Airplay. I love the control app for the iPad/iPhone. In my opinion Yamaha is the best in the business. My other 20-year old Yamaha receiver is still rock solid.
  • Pros: Solid DSP performance with surround sound. Lowest harmonic distortion. Great value.
  • Cons: None

Any one seeking near perfection at a good price, consider these.

  • Summary: this replaced a old receiver from i don't know...maybe 2006? all i know is this receiver has blown me away. It's a little weaker in means of the subwoofer. I've tampered with settings and gotten it to something I do enjoy.

WILLIAM W., Newegg
10 January 2015
  • Pros: if your hdmi output seems to have died, try this, power off push and hold the straight button on the reciever (not the remote) turn the unit on whilst holding straight button use the program left and right keyus to move the screen over till it says Init cancle, press straight will that says init ...
  • Cons: the issue was that the system could not complete a full hdmi dchp handshake or something, that some part of the setup the source / reciver / or screen thought that what it was playing was copyright protected or some such, so the receiver cut video.

  • Summary: Replaced an older receiver without video switching. Works great! I love the HDMI switching even when the received is powered off (pass-through). Also really like the AirPlay from my iPhone!

Yamaha RX-V495

Cathy D., Newegg
13 November 2014
  • Summary: The sound is great for the budget minded. $300 for the receive and sub, with free shipping. Newegg is tough to beat !
  • Pros: Setup was easy ... 3.1 in a small living room. HDMI from ROKU, Dish Hopper, and Blu-Ray to receiver, HDMI out from receiver to 55" Samsung TV. I used the included mic to auto adjust the speakers, including the 10" Polk PSW10 sub which was included free with the receiver. I added a refurbished Net...
  • Cons: When a headphone is in use, the speakers can't be used. Seems common among the newer receivers. Digital (input) sound is not converted to analog (output) on the receiver. My husband is somewhat deaf and he needs to use headphones, but I like listening via speakers. So in addition to the HDMI from...

No problems in a year

Jeremy K., Newegg
4 November 2014
  • Summary: Unless you're obsessed with HAVING to have every little bell and whistle that you will never use, this is THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK. I bought it through NEWEGG and it came fast and undamaged.
  • Pros: This receiver has all the options I needed. Plenty of HDMI. It sets itself up extremely easy. Every single function works. I hooked it up via LAN (faster speed than wireless) and it easily recognized my computer. I can access all my folders to listen to music. The internet radio works flawlessly ...
  • Cons: I didn't get it 11/04/2014 when it was on sale WITH a free Polk subwoofer.
