Summary: Living room, with old KLH floor speakers works nice. Interfacing to Panasonic TV w/ Panasonic Home Theatre audio messy - still wonder. How to combine with Panasonic Home Theatre sound system in the best way is challenging, but I will say the sound from my old KLH speakers (2 front, 2 rear with no center or subwoofer) beats the Panasonic Viera Home Theatre speakers. And i like the network on/off and Pandora, and Apple TV operation.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Works For A Newbee
Summary: I upgraded a previous Yamaha receiver to get new features, such as USB input on front panel and HDMI connections. Overall enjoying the RX-V475 and my only "Con" so far is the volume seems very low when using surround sound while watching movies. I have HDMI connection between receiver and DVD and TV and also optical connection between receiver and TV. I haven't yet optimized sound balance so maybe that's it. Will let you know.
Pros: Clear Sound, Energy Efficient, Interfaces Well With TV
Summary: Hooked up to my home theater system which included new LED TV & blu-ray player. Set up relatively easy with no major problems encountered. Resultant 5.1 sound quality absolutely stellar--noticeably clearer and more dynamic than my prior 12 year old receiver. Power output more than sufficient to drive all speakers with room to spare. Quickly able to calibrate speaker setttings automatically using receiver's YPAO microphone function.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Hdmi Arc Connection To Tv, Interfaces Well With TV, Ypao Microphone Function
Summary: Great receiver for the price. I had to replace my old yamaha receiver (over 10 years old) and needed something more up to date as well. Has plenty of hdmi inputs but I wish it had analog surround inputs for my sacd player. Oh well. Time to upgrade the player as well anyway.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls
Summary: Purchased to replace a 10-year old AV Receiver of another brand. It is the focal point of TV, DVD, CD, Radio entertainment in a large Living Room. It was a little challenging to set up because of an unfamiliar menu but otherwise setup went smoothly. When adding a center channel speaker about a month after installing the unit, it was found to have no center audio output.
Pros: Clear Sound, Interfaces Well With TV
Cons: No Center Channel Audio, Setup Was Challenging
