A Strong Contender...

  • Summary: I really, REALLY want to give the RX-V677 a higher rating because this feature-packed receiver deserves some attention (my actual rating would be a 3.5, but it could easily have been a 5), but its HDMI performance brings down my score a bit. As an audio receiver, I am VERY satisfied with the RX-V677 - it sounds amazing and I can really discern the various sound channels in my 6.1 speaker setup. (I am upgrading from an older Yamaha receiver.
  • Pros: 6 Hdmi Ports, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality, Lots Of Useful Features
  • Cons: Only 2 Optical Ports, Poor Reception / Weak Antenna

Great Product forprice and quality

  • Summary: Finally got a new HD 4K TV and needed a new audio unit with HDMI connections. Have a 2nd location off of my other stereo that works for my set up so it was a major factor in deciding what to get and this fit the bill. And I also love the 7.1 feature so now I can really utilize all 7 (+subwoofer) speakers. Very easy to set up, love how easy it is to switch back and forth between settings. Had an issue with an other HDMI unit but this does not seem to be an issue at all.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality

Not user-friendly

  • Excerpt: Maybe this is true of all receivers, but the Yamaha is very difficult to figure out how to use. It was not at all intuitive, labeling is poor and switching to different zones requires multiple actions.

So far I'm very happy with this receiver

Fred M. Wieser "Phredd", Amazon

  • Summary: This is the third Yamaha receiver I have purchased. The first one was back in 1976. I wanted to update my system to take advantage of Wi-Fi and make music streaming from my computer easier. So far I'm very happy with this receiver, Yamaha has not let me down. I really like the fact that with Yamaha's app I can control all the functions for it, as well as the rest of my system, on my tablet. It sounds great, looks great, very impressed with the versatility.

HDMI output DOA

17 October 2014
  • Summary: This receiver seemed perfect for what I needed it to do, including zone 2 output for my whole home audio. Unfortunately, it failed at one of its basic functions which is video output. The picture kept going in and out as soon as I hooked it up. Yamaha tech support walked me through some steps, until the picture was basically non-existent, at which point they said it's faulty. Thankfully, I ordered this from Amazon and they returned.

Love the sound quality on this

Kindle Customer, Amazon
25 September 2014
  • Summary: Love the sound quality on this. I'm not an audiophile but whatever, I'm impressed. I am having intermittent (well mostly always) trouble using the NET radio feature. I have programmed one of my SCENE buttons to turn on the receiver and tune into a default net radio station. This worked most of the time for the first few weeks, but now after upgrading several other home network components it doesn't work more than half the time.

Decent receiver but has pass through and 4K/HDMI 2.0 firmware update needed

Jonny "Jonny", Amazon
25 September 2014
  • Summary: Hello, I am writing to let any reading this forum know of the issues I am having with my RX-V677 which expands across the RX-V577 as well as the RX-V777BT. I will be updating this shortly with a long list of details and finding as well as TERRIBLE customer service Yamaha has. Over the past 2 weeks I have been chasing huge problem only to find out these receivers are not HDMI 2.0 complaint and have not been since June.
