Summary: I use this product for gaming and tv. Things i would like to see would be a dumbed down reciever. I will never use the internet radio really or airplay. They should create a cheap audiophile version like they do with car stereo recievers. Also i have a windows phone so no support for the app. I love how the yamaha looks and works.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Equalizer Power, Interfaces Well With TV, Thundering Bass
Summary: This is a really nice AV receiver! I replaced a Pioneer receiver I had owned for almost 10 years with this one when it became apparent that HDMI was taking over the AV connections for pretty much all devices (Blu-Ray, TVs, Tivos, etc.). My Pioneer receiver didn't do HDMI. This one has 4 HDMI inputs, which may be too few for some people, but it was sufficient for home entertainment center (I'm using three of the four).
Summary: This is a good receiver for an average home theater system. It would not be my first choice for my theater room, but it is more than enough for the great room. I like that you can stream directly from your smartphone via wireless network. Although I have not looked in great detail, I have not figured out how to keep the until on the input it was on when I last turned it off. I don't use it all the time, so I am using the HDMI pass-through..
Summary: This receiver gets the job done. i actually own Yamaha receiver that i keep in my bed room that gets the job done....i like the ability to connect to the network with this one which works awesomely. i play my music from my mobile devices seamlessly and im able to use this in sync with my smart tv and playstation which is even better.
Summary: This AV Receiver offers mostly everything that you would want in this model range. This receiver replaced my Denon AV unit. I now will say that Yamaha is the one to beat. My favorite is playing music from my USB keys. I have many good 4 gig USB keys that have much of my music copied to them. The bonus is that I don't need to use my CD player anymore. The digital sound quality is far better straight from the USB key in wma format.
Summary: Bought this to round out a pre-installed surround sound system. Extremely happy with it, very easy to set up and sound quality is fantastic. Works well with my 5.1 system and nice to have option to upgrade to 7.1 later.
Summary: This was an awesome deal, one of the specials on Amazon that was really worth it. I have had it for a few months now, still working great, really makes the whole entertainment system sound great.
