JVC audion Receiver

rnewton383, Ebay
8 January 2010
  • Summary: remote is lacking in features but receiver is great. Very powerful and great sound quality. I love the Scenes feature, I own two of these receivers and recomend them highly. I recomend buying a Logitech harmony 1100 remote.

Yamaha Rx V661

burk90064, Ebay
9 April 2009
  • Summary: Nice easy set up. Worked very well with my clients BOSE speakers. Good Zone two output. I had installed two Denons before this Yamaha and both denons did not like the bose speakers. I've read somewhere that Yamaha has a circuit board friendly to Bose.

nice receiver but...

Angelo Affronti "Cobra Leader", Amazon
23 February 2009
  • Summary: Very nice high quality receiver but the remote control is prehistoric. Can't beleive Yamaha would include such a cheap and old fashioned remote to control such a high tech piece. The range on it also is unsatisfactory. They should have included a laser to be sure you are pointed directly @ it or it does not work.Very slow to respond with the volume up and down. Overall pleased with receiver, give the remote back to Fred G.Sanford, and the "G" stands for GARBAGE !

Great System for sound....

L. OConnor, Amazon
7 January 2009
  • Summary: I love this receiver! There are many functions on this system relating to TV HDMI which I don't use and can not speak to. However, if you are looking for quality sound for a reasonable price this is your baby!

Great sound, lots of features - Bad user interface

Gary, Amazon
22 December 2008
  • Summary: First of, this is a great reciever. Great sound and plenty of features for the price. You can't go wrong there. The bad part is, be prepaired to spend a couple hours with the manual and the other bad part is, the manual is as complicated to read as the interface! I did however figure it all out. Once you get your "Scenes" set up, you are good to go.

Should have looked at more!

James L. Burke, Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: Easy to connect everything especially using the HDMI outputs. Very good sound with 7 speakers (using Bose for all but the 2 rear which I installed Niles in wall flush mount. Biggest disappointment is not being able to use my Sony universal remote. The Yamaha won't turn off with anything other than its own remote, which by the way, is very weak. Overall, satisfied but there are better units out there for the same price.

Bits and pieces

T. Payne "Multipass", Amazon
25 August 2008
  • Summary: I primarily bought this unit for 1. The close out price. 2. For the two hdmi inputs with one hdmi output and 3. For the phonograph connectors (I have a few albums:) Older models don't have hdmi and many newer models don't have phonograph connectors. (But I believe their manuals, available online, might suggest how to connect. So if that is a concern with other models, you might check for a manual.) I agree with others about this remote. It is not... comfortable.

Yamaha is a good bet

GT, Amazon
18 June 2008
  • Summary: I bought Yamaha products many years ago and was very pleased with quality and performance. I think that holds true this time too. Had some shipping issues to Alaska and the unit appeared to have taken some "hits" as there is a small (barely noticeable) crease in the bezel where some ape dropped it. The unit functions flawlessly so it is pretty tough. The sound quality is excellent.

Nice reciever, but complex

Kindle Customer "Is", Amazon
15 June 2008
  • Summary: Very nice receiver, but the operation of it requires almost a degree in engineering (which I have, but still had to study the manual - which of course engineers don't like to do). The sound is great and it has more features than you can imagine once you figure them out.
