Summary: I purchased this unit after my 2-year old Onkyo went down with the typical HDMI board issue. I switched to Yamaha because of their supposedly better build quality. After less than 5 hours of use, I got got the dreaded blinking red power light. What gives with these new AV receivers?
Summary: This item was previously used and was in a box which had been previously opened. The power and video cables were just thrown in. I had to return it and that also became a hassle as I had to explain before I was given an RMA number. I was
Summary: First, beware: The "Ultra HD (4K) Pass-through" advertised as a future-proof is anything but. It turns out that the 4k signal is restricted to 30Hz, even though the signal and connected television both support 60Hz. You won't find that information here, though.
