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.

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! Your Ipod never sounded better :)

Great sound, lots of features - Bad user interface

Gary, Amazon

  • 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.

Bits and pieces

T. Payne, 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.

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.

Nice reciever, but complex

Amazon 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.

Good sound/video. Bad remote control.

San Jose Reviewer, Amazon
7 March 2008
  • Summary: I've been using this receiver for about a week now. The auto-setup was great! The auto-setup even noticed that I accidentally reversed the wires for one of my speakers. I haven't seen this very helpful feature in other receivers.

Great Receiver for the Price

Nathan Phillips "I may have an Amazon problem", Amazon
19 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought the RXV661 Receiver from Best Buy on Sale for $395 which provided an extra $100 for speakers. I sound tested the unit at a Best Buy and it blew away the Sony's priced in a similar price range. The bass on the unit isn't as strong as I expected buy I only have it turned up half way.

TRUE YAMAHA QUALITY

TCW the Communications Strategist "Terry Wilhite", Amazon
8 October 2007
  • Summary: Bottom line: Superior sound, great value. Some design issues that do NOT affect sound; For example, video in/outs relegated to the right hand back of the receiver. Audios on the left, instead of the tradition yellow, white and red RCA inputs grouped together.

Works Great

A. Gupta "recent receiver buyer", Amazon
3 September 2007
  • Summary: I use this receiver with my Bose Acoustimass home theater system and it sounds great. I'm sure there are some features which I have yet to learn to use, but for what I'm using it for, its great.
