Pandora playback is poor.

  • Summary: Great potential with this receiver and phone app. Unfortunately, my only desired use for this receiver is for Pandora playback and it doesn't work well. Many "stalls" - usually very near the beginning of a song, as if it's buffering.

  • Summary: Premium sound, easy set-up, and ALL the "Bells and Whistles" including Airplay for under $250!!! This is a steal for that price, and I STRONGLY recommend this receiver to anyone looking to update theirs or to start a 5.1 channel surround sound system!!!

  • Summary: My Pioneer receiver died on me last week - and I was told the repair will cost more than half the value of a new receiver. So I decided to go for a new one. I choose this particular unit because it is the cheapest in the shop with streaming capability.

First and Last Yamaha product

  • Summary: I connected this receiver to a wireless extender that had wired ethernet connections so I could use Airplay and Internet radio over my wireless network. Worked like a charm. Then, I noticed variable functionality with Airplay and a 'version error' error message.

  • Summary: Upgraded from a Denon 3805. I didn't want to spend too much $$ this time around due to upcoming changes with 4k coming out and the whole HDMI 2.2 etc thing. After looking at several different receivers, I opted for this as I would be able to maximize all of the features.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: No Bluetooth Built In

Sounds great.

  • Summary: Sounds great (really great), easy setup and configuration, nice array of features. The only knock against it, which is really only partially Yamaha's fault, is its ability to work with other implementations of HDMI CEC.

  • Summary: Kick ass receiver for the money! I upgraded from a 20+ year old Kenwood and the clarity is amazing. The features are very nice although I dont use the airplay. I hope I haven't yet totally pissed off my neighbors because it sounds great!
