Summary: I bought this unit to upgrade my home theater to HDMI sound. The setup with the microphone was quick and easy and created a well balanced sound field. I was pleased that as volume is increased upto 50% the decebel level correspondingly decreases causing less distortion.
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...
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: 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: Purchased this receiver back in 2011. Right out of the box it is very easy to set up and use. Controller is simple and easily lets you switch between inputs. Sound is great. Have this paired with a JBL home threatre speaker system and for under 500 bucks I am very happy with it.
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.
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: 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: This is my first Yamaha anything and I have to say it does not disappoint. Replacing a Denon 2309ci, The V571 is a joy to listen to music wise with a much better sound using Yamaha's YPAO music enhancement over Audisey in my opinion.
