Died after two months

aurick "aurick", Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this unit because I'd just gotten one of Samsung's top-end TV's and I needed a new receiver if I wanted to enjoy any 3D. It replaced an Onkyo that I've had for several years and always had beautiful results with. Getting the receiver wired up was about as easy as any 7.2 system really can be. Their YPAO automatic set up is not nearly as good as Onkyo's Audyssey system, however. First, it only measures one location. If you watch TV by yourself, that's fine.

Didn't get all the bugs out of AirPlay

John Drake, Amazon
2 August 2012
  • Summary: I initially liked the 673. it has plenty hdmi inputs, an ipad app to control it, and airplay. the auto-speaker setup is a big improvement over my last stereo and certainly over me doing it manually. before i get to my concerns about it, let me say right up front that yamaha service got right back to me and even made a follow up phone call.

Update 8/27/2012

Amazon
30 June 2012
  • Summary: This receiver has a glitch in it that "cuts out" the TV signal. While the "cut out" only lasts about a second or so, sometimes it will actually change the TV settings. (Cinema to Auto or Sports) At first no big deal. It has become frustrating over time. I have tried various set up options on the receiver but have not figured out how to stop this "cut out". While overall I enjoy this device, this problem is distracting when you're watching a movie or TV show.

Zone 2 not usable

Jim H., Amazon
22 June 2012
  • Summary: I just spent a few hours installing this receiver. The problem is that the zone 2 output (using RCA jacks) into my NUVO Concerto whole house audio has VERY low volume. This is not a problem with any other sources (iPhone direct through headphone jack, DVD player direct, Hughes HR 20 DVR, etc...). I understand that the volume level is FIXED when output to zone 2 through RCA jacks.

Leider funktioniert Airplay nicht

Phips77, Amazon
17 October 2014
  • Summary: Ich wollte das Gerät wirklich haben. Es sieht super aus und funktionierte bis auf das Airplay einwandfrei. Aber es war ein Glücksspiel, ob der Reciever per Airplay erreichbar war oder nicht. Damit für mich leider unbrauchbar. Benutze jetzt den Denon AVR-X1000, Airplay funktioniert immer, auch sonst optimaler Ersatz.

Guter Receiver mit einigen Bedienungsmängeln

B. Frank "Corbulo", Amazon
14 December 2012
  • Summary: Der Receiver als solcher ist gut und über den Sound kann ich mich nicht beklagen. Es sind mir nur einige Dinge aufgefallen, von denen ich denke, sie könnten für einen potentiellen Käufer von Interesse sein. - Man kann zwar mit der Fernbedienung auch den Fernseher bedienen, jedoch die Zifferntasten der Fernbedienung dabei nicht verwenden. D.h. Es gibt nur eine Ch +/- Taste. Bei mehr als 10 Kanälen wird es also umständlich.
