Awesome receiver

McDubz, Amazon
25 July 2012
  • 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. There is excellent volume control and balancing for all speakers. When an iPod is connected I was surprised to find that you can browse all of the media on the iPod onscreen through the built in GUI of the receiver.

Nice but it has limitations

Rock Star "Quartz", Amazon
25 July 2012
  • 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. My audio/video components are in our home office and the TV and speakers are in the living room. I pulled wires for outdoor speakers on the patio and 5.1 surround speakers and component video to the living room long ago.

Drop Dead Simplet Setup - Sound is amazing.

Dr. Space, Amazon
9 July 2012
  • Summary: This replaced a Onkyo TX SR604 that barely lasted 4 years before - one-by-one - the channels for it's various inputs burned out. I've bought Onkyo receivers for years and - until now - loved them. I've never seen heat issues like the last couple. It was time for a change. I have friends that swear by Yamaha (and they make amazing keyboards). EXPECTATIONS: I tend to buy middle-of-the-road receivers. I've heard the 2K+ receivers and they are breath-taking. The sound.

Fully Functional Media Switcher

TL "Pan Fan", Amazon
2 July 2012
  • 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. The RX-V571BL is an older model, but is not lacking in features. Even iPad connects with full control.

SO FAR I AM LOVING THIS RECEIVER

Judi Fryer "Judi, Entertainment-glutton", Amazon
23 June 2012
  • Summary: It has been 20+ years since I updated by sound/home theater system, so my review won't be helpful as comparisons go. The Sony I replaced had nothing new-tech about it, no HDMI capabilities, etc. This might as well be my first receiver. Actually it is my first Yamaha Receiver. The price was 'more than right'; it was recommended to me by a salesperson in a big box store.

Good for prudent movie lovers

An ordinary consumer, Amazon
5 June 2012
  • Summary: After couple weeks of ownership, here are some thoughts. This receiver is a good choice for prudent movie lovers who don't need all those newest features about wireless streaming from iPods, iPhones, iPads, Internet radios, etc. I was looking for a 7.1 receiver from a good brand without all the newest frills that I would not use in any case and around $300 and this one seemed to be the best choice. If you need wireless features, etc.

A good choice

J. fox, Amazon
5 June 2012
  • Summary: This receiver is a good choice for those who are starting a new system or even upgrading an older Yamaha receiver like me. It has good sound, a little too much trebble initially (before tweaks and break in) but once you hook up a sub to it...look out. Movies sound rich, music is full, and cable channels come alive. I love the on screen menu as it is much easier to navigate than the old school LCD screen menu provided by the receiver.

very satisfied with this receiver

ken, Amazon
2 June 2012
  • Summary: very happy with the Yamaha RX-V571BL 7.1-Channel AV Receiver, easy to use, GUI is very nice. Bought the Sony STRDH820 7.2 Channel 3D AV Receiver, and it was ok except for the on screen menu which would leave what you were watching, therefore had no surround sound to adjust speakers, with the Yamaha v571, overlays on top of what your watching so you can dial it in perfect. love all of HDMI inputs.

Great Sound Quality

mkp80, Amazon
1 June 2012
  • Summary: Exactly as others describe, probably the best Receiver in this price range. 4 Stars only because when you try and route hdmi through the Receiver then the TV, it has caused picture problems (from a mac) and sound problems (xbox-no center output). I would buy again.

I just have a question about it. That's all.

jche4426, Ebay
31 May 2012
  • Summary: There seems to be a confusion with the power of this receiver. 180 Watt total or per channel. If the total output power is 180 what is output per channel. The current listing would certainly not help....
