great product (when it works); awful customer service
8 October 2012
Summary: i bought this unit to run two zones independently at my house, each with its own content and volume control. it worked perfectly. there was a little fine tuning that i was able to accomplish with yamaha's knowledgeable customer support (which is 24/7) after a long wait. i am not an audiophile and i am not running a hometheater system, so i cannot comment on the quali of sound or picture. however, the feature set is great.
People never like reading bad reviews... I don't like writing one.. but.....

Summary: When this 673 came out I read the reviews which were all outstanding. I didn't have time to look at it first and just ordered one by mail - a no-brainer, I thought. It was a dumb mistake. Had I just looked at the back of the unit and seen that the posts for the speaker wire can't take anything much bigger than bell cable alarm bells would have sounded. And that one pair of speakers use the old press, push, and release method that would have been another clue.
Summary: Hab mir den Yamaha RX-V673 gekauft, weil doch sehr viel positives geschrieben wurde. Gerät soweit o.k. inkl. der App für mein IPAD + Airplay >> klasse ! NEGATIV: Gerät angeschlossen inkl. LAN, dann kam die Meldung das Update durchgeführt wird. Danach hatte ich ERRO 2000! Das darf nicht sein, zum Glück hatte ich schon zuvor im Internet gestöbert und mir das Update per USB gezogen Danach über USB Update gemacht >> o.k.
