Summary: very happy to upgrade to this yamaha from my 12 year yamaha. the hdmi ports and has enough power to make you feel that you are at the theather. love the app and easy audio setup for whatever room you might be in.
Summary: What can I say about the best receiver I have ever owned? So many great things to say about it, I don't know where to start. I don't have to use my TV to do anything anymore. I switch between HDMI1, 2, 3,4 by using this Receiver. It even turns my Yamaha subwoofer on and off.
Summary: We had a model of 2012 that quit. So I was a little bit "anxious" by another "yamaha" product as the first,, even in the same price range, was not what I was expected. So, bad product and bad quality and ....why should I buy another yamaha !? I don't know. But, what a difference.
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: Even though this is definitely not the top of Yamaha's line, I am very impressed with its power, clarity and features. This is my 3rd Yamaha in the past 15 years - and yes, they all still work perfectly.
Summary: Love the flexibility of inputs and the android app. It shows Pandora and locally stored album covers. The internet station selection is really nice. (I would prefer for the app to display the sampling rate) I can easily navigate to the music I have stored on my Windows machine or on my Synology NAS.
Summary: Great upgrade from an older, about 10 - 12 year old Yamaha receiver. The previous receiver still worked fine. Plenty of power and volume and sound quality was great. However, we bought it just before the HDMI standard came out and so I lost a lot of features and easy connections possible with HDMI.
