Very nice budget receiver

justin block, Amazon

  • 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. Only have two complaints: Sub has a lot of power and when the bass is really thumping it rattles pretty much everything around it.

Very good receiver

  • Summary: This is a very good receiver. The sound is excellent when paired with good speakers and speaker wires. I am using the Energy 5.1 system. It looks great as well, which a black shine that goes with most entertainment system decors. The upscaling and pass-thru of video is top quality. My only complaint is that it starts running a bit hot while in use.

Excellent Product

  • 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: Got this on black Friday in 2011 and it still works really well. Picking up a slight radio signal from somewhere though. But you can't even hear it unless the tv show / movie is really quiet.

  • 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.

One major drawback

Solandri, Amazon
30 August 2012
  • 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. The AV features are great, and the YPAO automatic calibration makes setting up sound levels for the different speakers a breeze. The other reviews will tell you all the wonderful things about this 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.

A good choice

  • 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

  • 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.
