OK receiver

JoeD, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: This receiver over all is easy to use and operate. I replaced my 14 year old Sony 5.1 receiver because I started to need HDMI on for the receiver for audio/video equipment. The only thing I am really disapointed with is that this receiver does not "push" my sub-woofer as hard. I had to set the receiver to really drive the sub-woofer with the "boost" setting in the options, and turn up the sub-woofer more than I ever have. Other than that I love it.

Fair Head Unit

  • Summary: Not the best, but for the price, not the worst! I'm happy with my purchase, but there is much better out there. Airplay should not require changing the inputs!

Sounds nice, but ...

  • Summary: Overall, I am pleased with RX-V475 receiver. I had a Yamaha amp and tuner in the past and was very pleased with both. I bought this unit based on that experience without doing any comparisons with other brands. I like the features (Pandora, Air Play, 3D, 4K, Compressed Music Enhancer, scenes, etc.) and the price. It provides nice sound through my JBL studio speakers.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Energy Efficient
  • Cons: Confusing Remote, Poor Interface

Ok Receiver, Decent Sound, AIRPLAY NOT FUNCTIONAL

Andrew Murrey, Amazon
6 November 2013
  • Summary: This is a decent receiver. It has plenty of ports for all your devices. However, this device is supposed to be an Airplay supporting device. I find that the airplay functionality is very poorly implemented. The feature works very haphazardly if at all. According to Yamaha support posts, there may be a firmware update coming soon, however I'm not holding my breath.

Good receiver but has problems

E. Pena, Amazon
17 September 2013
  • Summary: **UPDATE** 17 March, 2014 I think I have finally cracked the code, or just about. I have disabled ARC on my Panasonic TV and the AVR and I am only having the handshake issues a couple times a month, down from every day. Power up sequence didn't make any difference, replacing the cables didn't work, and upgrading the DirectV didn't work.

Yamaha RX-V475

Mike Hudson, Amazon
14 June 2013
  • Summary: I'm surprised how much better the RX-V475 sounds than my old Pioneer VSX-D810S. I'm also surprised by how handy the iPhone & iPad remote control apps are. To me the best feature is how the unit turns itself on and switches to "Airplay" whenever it's selected by an iOS device on the home network. (Unfortunately, when Airplay is turned off, it requires user intervention to return to its previous state.
