Summary: I bought this receiver to replace a 4 year old Pioneer 7.1 receiver that lost all of its audio channels suddenly and simultaneously. I've only had the Yamaha for about a month, but, hopefully, it'll give me better service than did the Pioneer.
Summary: Sound quality is a great improvement over my standard TV. I hooked up a set of 5.1 Polk speaker and it really made my tv come alive. However, as typical with component AV receiver, using it is not as straigh forward as can be.
Summary: It should have an A/B switch on the receiver. The app is iffy. I can't get internet radio to work most of the time and getting favorite internet stations set in the app involves a very convoluted process. The sound and power are fine and it has a nice assortment of ports.
Summary: I had been looking to upgrade my 20 year-old rx-670 for a few years now- it still works perfect and sounds great, but I really wanted some of the new features that all the modern receivers have (HDMI input/output, Network capabilities, AirPlay, etc.
Summary: I have had this reciever for a few months now. It replaced a Marantz that I had had for a few years that was giving me trouble. So far I'm very pleased with this reciever. It has worked flawlessly and sounds great. Setup was super easy too!
First shipment hit and miss second just amazing!!!
