Nice sound but poor execution - Aquos does not work

Denis "seeker of knowledge", Amazon
28 October 2014
  • Summary: I have several Yamaha components and all are great except this one. The sound is great. The features are great. The Aquos link simply does not work. In fact, it screws things up so bad, I suggest you just turn it off and buy a side table to set all your remote controls on. This was the main feature I purchased this unit for because I hate having to deal with several remotes, but it does not work.

Great price

  • Pros: Low Price and is a solid unit. The sound is really awesome and will meet all your needs
  • Cons: Still can't get the net radio to work. flashing the unit can not be performed over the internet. Thumb drive and some strange way of pushing a button when it comes on forces it to put in the new firmware.

  • Cons: most they don't last very long, 6months to a year

Awesome most of the time.

  • Summary: Periodic issue with screen turning all magenta. Power cycle (pulling power cable, count to ten and plug back in) clears it up until the next time. Seems to happen once every three months. I have the latest firmware and still occurs. Other shortcoming to mention is I have to wait for the receiver to "click" after powering on before I adjust volume or I won't get any sound. These aren't horrible issues, but not something you'd expect.

Great sound and a great Price

TODD W., Newegg
11 June 2014
  • Pros: Great looking unit. Remote is not so bad and is ordered in sections. Awesome sound and very quick on power up.
  • Cons: Wish it had more simple AV connections. Upscaling would of been nice also. Upgrading the firmware ended up using a thumb drive. Insert and power plug cord in while holding Info button down. Would not upgrade over internet It would download but then fail as it authenticated.

  • Summary: I cant believe this receiver refuses to power up now. I'm now questioning Yamaha brand as more iffy going forward. I for one, would recommend a 3 year warranty route with this brand!

  • Summary: 7.1 surround sound hooked up with 65" TV, no need to go to the movies. Sound is unbelievable with Yamaha speakers too! Everyone should buy Yamaha.

Love Yamaha amps

Cooligan, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • Summary: I really like this unit. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because I wanted to go wireless but when I purchased this, Yamaha wasn't quite there yet so I didn't go for a high end model but that's coming... ;) Otherwise it is a GREAT purchase. This is my second Yamaha amp. My other one was about 20 years old. It still sounded golden but I had to jury rigg my TV sound since they didn't have HDMI hookups when I bought it.
