Great Receiver for current setup (but not future proof!)

Summary: It's an older 2013 model, but does what I want. My setup - 5.1 speakers, 1080p LED TV, BluRay, Apple TV, Wii; wired ethernet; Logitech Harmony remote with IR repeater (So I can hide devices in a cabinet) Tons of features - here are my favorites - 1) ON SCREEN GUI that overlays on picture - I can set...
Summary: Very nice receiver. This is the second Yamaha receiver I have owned and I have been very satisfied with them. I used to always buy Sony, but for the price the Yamaha has more features. The price on this receiver (new) was very good although it isn't the latest model.
This Yamaha has very good sound and I am pleased with it

Summary: I have only had this AV Receiver for 4-5 weeks, so I can't speak as to how well it has held up. My last two receivers were an Onkyo and a Denon. I payed more than twice as much for each of them, neither one of them were half the quility of this Yamaha, and neither lasted very long.
Summary: I saw this as the "Deal of the Day" and decided to pull the trigger...I've had this receiver for a couple of weeks now and so far it works like a champ, has plenty of power, and tons of features.
Summary: This receiver is awesome, for the price. Tons of features, sound modes, inputs/outputs, and power. Can't really speak to the remote as I use a Harmony to control my system. I've owned two previous Yamaha receivers in the past and they have always been great with zero issues, so I hope that continues...
Summary: Can't complain that much. It easily drives my speakers with plenty of power. Only issue is that when I use it for ARC anytime I am watching cable on my Samsung TV the volume comes on then goes off. I have to press any menu on the receiver's remote or the preset activity to get the volume to come on.
Summary: Everything I expected. This reciever kicks ass. Didn't auto setup perfectly, kept turning my sub down way too much. But the interface on the tv was very easy to navigate and I had each speaker set up exactly the way I wanted in minutes. The wifi remote app on the iPhone is awesome.
