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. I don't think you could touch any other quality receiver with the same set of features for the price I paid for this one.
Summary: Got it for a steal on a black friday deal. Paired it with some good speakers. It sounds phenomenal. The coolest thing for me is the iOS app for my phone. I can start music in the morning from my bed.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Interfaces Well With TV
Summary: Awesome receiver for listening to music or as a home theater system. Can be used from 2 ch. to 7.1 ch. It does take some time to setup correctly. But with the available one touch buttons you only have to go through this one time. Then you can select Blu-ray DVD, TV, Net where you have several options or Radio and you have your settings for each saved to these buttons so you can go from listening to music to watching your favorite movie with the push of one button on the...
Pros: Clear Sound, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass

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. This Yamaha has very good sound and I am pleased with it.
Summary: This is now the "brains" of my home audio/TV/Movie system and it does everything I want, and more. The iPad App is the best feature. Love the internet connectivity and the ability to have different audio sources in the two zones. Only complaints are minor. Buttons on the remote are tiny and controlling Zone 1 and Zone 2 isn't as straightforward as I'd like. There's also a delay between Zone 1 and 2 when both are playing same source.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Ipad App Is Great
Summary: I purchased this unit to replace an older system I've had for years. I liked it because it had so many input for all of my devices. This is what I was previously missing. Little did I know how much I would enjoy the additions. The network connection is just totally amazing. It found all of my DLNA drives throughout my network and offers them to me and a user-friendly display to select as I wish. If I get tired of my selections then I have the Net Radio which is great.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Works With Mobile Devices
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. The optional awesome AV controller app allows me to turn on/off and control the receiver from anywhere as long as I'm within range of my home network. One word of caution: I decided to install the latest and greatest available firmware but network installation repeatedly failed.
