User Review

PATRICK C., Newegg
8 March 2015
  • 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

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.

Just what I was looking for

Bruce R., Newegg
8 August 2014
  • Pros: I decided after all these years to build a real system, receiver, speakers, turntable and HD TV. This unit is just fantastic. More than I expected and likely more than I will ever use. Still learning how to use all features. Primarily looking for unit that would handle my turntable and this is pe...
  • Cons: Will take me a while to figure out all the features.

Great Product for Starters (when priced right)

Marilyn L., Newegg
11 May 2014
  • Summary: This is a great beginner system product, but I will definitely upgrade to the 7.1 or 7.2 Yamaha receivers when it is most economically viable. I love the product and would recommend it to anyone looking for a start-up system with a set of random speakers (like mine.
  • Pros: I have been waiting ten months to write this review just so that I could prove I have played around with it thoroughly. I purchased this receiver for under $290 (with a coupon) back in June 2013. I believe that is a fantastic price for a starter receiver. I will purchase a 7.1 or 7.2 receiver fro...
  • Cons: Not having a built in Wi-Fi hookup in a wireless age has been the most inconvenient, but as stated earlier, I solved this with Ethernet over power-line adapters. (about $20 on newegg on-sale) Up scaling is a joke. There was absolutely no difference in video quality and you would do better to upgr...

so far so good

Larry, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: Just had it for 1 day. so far so good. I got these amazing pioneer Andrew Jones designed speakers that I need a receiver to power up. I so want a pioneer receiver, but the amazon rating of the pioneer receivers were about 4 star, and there are some negative reviews that made me hesitate.

Awesome

Kindle Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this receiver for a month now. I had a roku MHL stick, so I was looking for a receiver that supports MHL. This receiver happens to be the cheapest receiver that has an HDMI MHL port. I had replace an onkyo reciever.

Awesome!!!

Mario A. Herrera "Mario Herrera", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm extremely happy with the receiver, although I don't use the Airplay feature since we have an Apple TV. The sound and quality is just amazing for such a modest price. If your TV doesn't have enough HDMI inputs, this receiver is the solution!
