Great Sounds!!

Timewarpone, Amazon
16 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this receiver about 5 years ago and still sounds awesome. I knew ahead of time it didn't have any HDMI. The main reason I purchased it was that it delivers 100w/ch x 7ch. I paired this receiver with an Infinity TSS-1100 surround sound 5.1 speaker system.

Monster Sound, Miniscule Price

Benjamin E. Schwiderski, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted an upgrade from my old Yamaha 595a that was rated at a modest 75wpc. I wanted more power and 7.1. What an upgrade it is. What sold me on this model is the review at [...]. The power rating of 100wpc on this unit is indeed underrated. One of the most underrated amps of all time I'd say.

Great receiver!

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Contrary to a previous review - this receiver will set up easily & will output 5.1, 6.1 OR 7.1 (& more with a/b or extra zone). You just have to correctly wire your speakers (auto set-up will TELL you if you are properly hooked) & the 659 will do the rest.

Excellent Value

  • Summary: I recomend this unit for anyone. It is a huge upgrade from my five year old kenwood that I paid $400 for. When I was shopping for a new receiver I considered Onkyo, Pioneer, Denon, Yamaha. From my research I eliminated Denon because all I heard was that all Denon receivers are a pain to setup.

Yamaha sound for so little $$

Empire Builder, Amazon
17 October 2007
  • Summary: What can I say, it's got that great Yamaha sound! I bought this receiver to replace an Integra DTR-7.2 with a malfunctioning DSP. I owned a Yamaha receiver before that and I decided to go with Yamaha again. What a difference!
