Summary: My old Sony receiver was giving me fits and my needs had outgrown its capacity (in particular, it only had 2 HDMI inputs and I have 4 devices that I connected through an HDMI switch). This Yamaha unit has dropped in price due to the new models that have come out. Set up on this unit was a snap!
Summary: Got this receiver for a combination AV/Karaoke system with 5.1 speakers. All the other popular AV receivers seemed to have some severe drawback (features which didn't work) mentioned in the reviews, while the Yamaha reviews were clean.
Summary: I bought a marantz SR5005 and it died in 2 months. Local dealer were not willing to repair it under warranty. Bought this as a replacement. It is far more reliable than the marantz and works as advertised. The only complaint is the display does not show the current audio format (DTS,DOLBY).
Summary: Since I have received the product on 17th July 2012, I am not able to use the remote. I have tried the various codes (5019, 5020). However it does not help me start the AVR It needs to be looked at immediately as without the remote the AVR cant be used Dr Asheesh Tandon
Summary: I have owned this receiver for a couple of weeks. In the beginning I already noticed some issues with the HDMI output. The picture stopped showing here and there. First I thought it's the HDMI Cable or a defect PS3 but it wasn't in the end.
Summary: This receiver has everything I was looking for. It's 105W/ch, 7.1 functionality, and banana plug jacks are what sold me. The setup was very intuitive and as easy as they could have made it. The onscreen GUI for setup and menus is the nicest thing.
Summary: I bought this receiver to replace an older model Yamaha receiver. The new receiver is capable but I learned a few things as I installed it. My old receiver only supported component video and I wanted to upgrade to full 1080P and HDMI.
Summary: At first, I was worried about sound quality after reading some of the reviews. I purchased anyway, and have absolutely no regrets. Matched with Yamaha speakers, this unit requires a bit of fine tuning on the audio side, and I will probably keep tweaking until I get exactly what I'm after.
Summary: I bought this with a Mirage Nanosat. I was venturing into Home Theater setup for the first time. As soon as I received it, I set it up and played 'Forbidden Kingdom' in Blu-ray[Thats the only one I had at that time], and instantaneously I had a grin that stretched from one ear to the other.
