A step up in compatibility and sound quality. Awesome system!!
4 March 2014
Summary: I found the directions easy to follow and install this system. Sound quality is excellent with numerous options. I feel I get more from this system with the same speakers than the Sony I replaced. Plus, I have compatibility with IPhone and Apple TV. This was my main objective in the upgrade.
Summary: Bought a refurbished AVR from amazon and with the 3 year square trade plan it came out cheaper than buying it new. AVR came in the same yamaha box and looked brand new. This is my first Yamaha AVR and overall it has been fairly easy to operate. I have an Integra DTR 50.2 for my upstairs surround which smokes this AVR but that also cost me $1300, only reason I say this is The integra is more user friendly.
