Summary: Great receiver. This is my 2nd Yamaha receiver (first one was smaller model lacking features that I eventually wanted). I've had it for a few years now and it works great. Created 3 separate zones (inside 5.1 surround, back porch stereo, front porch stereo) and drives all three zones without any issues of strength loss.

Summary: This receiver got a lot of features. I was not able to hook up my amplifer. It does have 30 presets for stations but they are all on one control 1-30. You have to go through all the presets to get to the one you want, as on others they have A,B,C,D with about 10 on each. The sound does not go as loud as I would like it to.
Summary: Keeping it short and simple: Ordered from 6th Ave. as used and only the cardboard box it came it looked used! A few finger prints on the side of the receiver, and not a scratch, blemish, or mark from wear to be seen.... really! VERY pleased with this receiver (so far), seller, and price! It has just the inputs and outputs that I was looking for. The pre-outs specifically are perfect to run self or bi-amplified speakers.
Summary: I have had good luck with Yamaha in the past so I gave this one a shot based on it's "zone 2" abilities. I had it up and running in minutes and the unit performs very well. I am not using much of it's video switching capabilities but it works well for what I have tried. The zone 2 funtion is just what I was looking for. You can control two areas from one remote.
Summary: The HDMI out to TV never worked right. After owning the receiver for one year, the Hdmi board failed completely. I had to take unit 100 miles away to the only uthoriized service in South Florida. After 10 days, I picked up the system and it was in the same condition. Yamaha has no tech support phone number, the response to emails is weeks of waiting and I still haven't resolved the issue. The unit's features are fine while they work.
Summary: I have owned several Yamaha products and bought this product new. At first I was happy with the unit but noticed that the color was off. Not being a picky audiophile here... the startup screen for my dvd player is blue and it would show up purple so I would need to reset the unit until it was corrected. Even then the color just seemed off. After 2 months the unit just stopped working.
