Awesome most of the time.

pixfbsd, Amazon

  • 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.

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.

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.

Moved from a RX-V750 to a V573 for HDMI switching and couldn't be happier

T.R. Norman, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: When this deal of the day popped up, I initially hesitated. Going from an RX-V750 to a V573 seemed like somewhat of a downgrade. I can honestly say I have zero regret. I did not notice any degradation in sound quality with the lower receiver lineand have enjoyed the HDMI switching even more than...

Good receiver for the price

William H., Newegg
24 January 2014
  • Summary: for the price I'd say its a good deal. I'm used to something a bit more high powered but for under $300 its pretty good.
  • Pros: it is relatively small and light. Sound is pretty good. Bi-amp feature is nice. runs cool. my old onkyo 807 could fry an egg. this one is luke warmish. the apps are cool if your into that stuff.
  • Cons: remote kind of sucks. it doesn't control my Fios tv box well at all. not crazy powerful, my old onky 807 shook the neighbor's neighbors house, this one is sufficient for my living room but not down the street lol. to disconnect the power cord from the receiver you have to take apart the housing o...

Ok Unit Until It Stopped Working Less Than 10 Months Old

Keldan Media, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: UPDATE: Bumped my rating to 4 stars after Yamaha made good on their warranty. Stuff breaks, good to see Yamaha stands behind their products. Great unit for the price with features I didn't know I wanted until I used them. Setup is cumbersome via the DOS menu.

Good, but has quirks.

old guy, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: Like the sound quality but the unit has a few quirks. For instance, it locked up my iPod (with Yamaha logo frozen on the display) which forced me to completely wipe and reload it. The unit is also occasionally very slow when switching between HDMI sources.

  • Summary: Perfect sound, and usable functions! Good quality sound for affordable price. The air play works greats, but only with sound, doesn't plays the video.

Excellent sounding AV Receiver!

Travis Olson, Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: I was looking to upgrade my aging Pioneer AV Receiver which only offered component inputs and no Dolby TrueHD or DTS-MA decoding. I had owned a Yamaha 5.1 receiver years ago and really appreciated the sound quality of that unit.
