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.
Summary: I purchased the receiver on a day when it was specially priced and for the money it appears to be a real steal. If there is a drawback it's that an instruction booklet (hard copy) doesn't accompany and I'm a guy who needs to read the print.
Summary: We bought this receiver based on a number of recommendations, including some from Amazon. The sound quality is excellent. We upgraded from a Panasonic receiver, and there is almost no comparison -- the Yamaha is significantly better.
Summary: Little bit about myself. I am a software engineer, so I know about wifi, airplay, DLNA etc. I research throughly before buying a product. Not a audiophile, so don't know much about audio stuff like RCA cables, crossover frequency etc This receiver was on my wishlist so when I saw it for sale for...
Nice but I bought the RX-V773WA for just 25 dollars more.

Summary: The RX-673 is nice of course but I bought the RX-V773WA instead for just $25 more ... $424.99 ... over at newegg just now. Don't ask me why but that same receiver costs $599.99 here at Amazon.
Summary: I've had this receiver for 5 months now. I upgraded from a 15 year old model, so obviously love having more modern functions. I am only using two speakers currently, so no info on surround sound experience.
