Summary: I am a big fan of Yamaha receivers. This one handles HDMI switching perfectly. The sound quality is excellent. Calibration was quick and easy. I really enjoy the on screen display and iPod integration.
Summary: This has everything you need for a an awesome sound and Home Theater System! Very impressed by all the HDMI ports and Digital optical sound port. Front plug in for I pod or USB dock and many pre set sound settings.
Summary: I have always liked Yamaha products and this does not disappoint. My friend has the 5.1 receiver and found it worked great, I opted for the 7.1 channel receiver. The options on this machine is just right for me and is not very difficult to figure out.
Summary: Like many, I am NOT a true "Audiophile." I know enough to set-up my HT System (keeping all wires labeled and neat, etc.) and playing with the Digital Sound Fields, etc... I know what sounds good to me... That being said - WoW - I was a bit surprised (even after all the Rave Reviews on-line) at just HOW MUCH sound I was previously missing (from audio in TV, DVD's and my own Music CDs)!
Summary: I am just a dad who decided to upgrade the family entertainment set-up by purchasing an LG 65LW6500 3-D TV (a barrel of fun I might add), a Sony S770 Blu-ray player, and this Yamaha A/V receiver. After my do-diligence and endless hours reading reading reviews on Amazon (trust me - I place more value in Amazon reviews than the "Professional" expert websites) I pulled the trigger the week before Christmas.
Summary: I have upgraded an older AVR 235 Harman Kardon receiver who gave-up on me after a long struggle with regular interruptions. Even after sending it for repairs during the warranty, it came back with the same issue. Anyway, I grew tired of smashing it :) so, in a way, I'm happy it permanently stopped working. Now, I'm pleasantly surprised with the quality with this Yamaha receiver and with the technological advancements.
Summary: Habe den Receiver zwar nicht hier bestellt, aber kann nach 2 glücklichen Jahren damit nur positives berichten. Aufbau und Einrichtung waren sehr schnell getan. Der Receiver wurde mir zu meiner BOSE 5.1 Sound-Anlage empfohlen und macht einfach nur Spaß. Am Receiver hängen BluRay-Player, Xbox One und TV. Das Signal wird auch bei ausgeschalteten Receiver perfekt weitergeleitet.
Summary: Sehr gutes Gerät, das bei uns seit mehr als 2 Jahren völlig problemlos im Einsatz ist. Super Klang!!!! Würde ich immer wieder kaufen, und das, obwohl es sich um ein mittelpreisiges Gerät handelt, das in sehr hohen Stückzahlen gebaut wird. Hier stimmt die Qualität noch.
