Summary: This is an amazing head unit especially for the money. I using mine now for about 3 months and still love it. I have a projector based home theater system that is being run off one HDMI cable routed through my ceiling, I mainly bought the unit as an HDMI switch.
After a year of having it off I just switched it to Auto and now all dialogue sounds almost as good as the movie theater

Summary: The most important thing to do if you buy this receiver is go into the function menu and switch "Adaptive DRC" to "Auto." For some reason Yamaha has it off by default and it makes watching movies sound muffled.
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...

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.
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!
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.
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.
