Summary: We bought this and were happy about it until it died. Took to Best Buy to get a quote to fix it, and they told me it would be more than to buy a new one. So we bought a new one, different model and brand. I am not sure how long those things are supposed to last, but 5 years I thought it was a good time. It was reasonably priced when we bought it too, so not much to complain.
Summary: Incredible versatile for multiple uses, situations. Have placed it in large 22' X 28' room for surround sound with mini home theater, added extra multiple speakers with switch to supplement sound to kitchen area when desired. Quality is superb. Can highly recommend.
Summary: The Yamaha RX-v571 met my expectations and works great for my needs. Looks nice, unimposing, and has wonderful sound. I was able to bi-amp my front towers easily. And once I diagnosed the radio interference was coming from a bad subwoofer cable, the system is completely quiet of extraneous noise.
Summary: i love my receiver it upconvert to 1080p from any source and the sound quality is awsome, ipod integration is a nice touch from yamaha, thanks for that, my buying experience with amazon is perfect.
Summary: Great receiver with video upscaling at modest price! Now all my signals go to TV with just one HDMI cable, instead of all the 3-color, RCA and HDMI inputs to the television from the receiver. the setup was easy, including speaker tuning for the room and it sounds terrific!
Summary: Falling about in the middle of the Yamaha new receiver line-up, this is a solid receiver with many of the bells and whistles you'd find on a more expensive model. The sound is excellent, the features are many and the power is fine enough for my room and my needs with room to spare. Anyone needing to upgrade their receiver, or just purchase a new one, could not go wrong if they added this to their system.
Summary: Perfect for my 500 sq ft small home theater room. Easy set up and lots of audio configuration options. You cannot go wrong with Yamaha. Its stationery so it will be kicking for the next 20 years.
