Yamaha Service Sucks

JAMES G., Newegg
22 July 2010
  • Summary: I would also suggest to Newegg and Yamaha that they extend (perhaps to 90 days) their replacement policy. It is such a pain in the rear to take this to a service center (there is only one in all of Atlanta) that is 30 miles away and then wait until the unit is repaired.
  • Pros: Yamaha normally makes great products with good value. If anything goes wrong after 30 days with Newegg you are hosed and directed to call Yamaha. Yamaha will then refer you to the nearest dealer and you can wait anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks depending on their backlog for repair.
  • Cons: This product lasted 2 months and 2 weeks to the day. Fortunately I had two identical receivers so I could quickly troublshoot and confirm and isolate the problem. Now I am stuck with waiting for a repair. I plan to move away from Yamaha and use something more reliable.

Great receiver till it died...

john e., Newegg
17 April 2010
  • Summary: Buyers be ware... This unit is dangerous. It worked amazing till the other day when it died completely. I have my Yamaha hooked up in a custom built home theater and its connected to a surge protector so this doesn't sound like a surge related death.
  • Pros: 4 HDMI in and out. 1080p. Powerful. Sounds amazing. Easy setup. Just a quality product....
  • Cons: no HDMI in on the front panel? That is the one design flaw I figured Yamaha would have nailed first try...

  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Difficult to use. Unit failed with the Ipod dock on Zone 2. Had repaired and now have similar issues with CD as well as IPOD. This unit has severe Zone2 problems. I do not recommend.

  • Summary: I purchased this receiver about two weeks ago the sound is amazing, very detailed, great highs and mids but too much bass, I have the bass on the tone level set to -10 and the 160hz and 400hz on the EQ set to -10 on my mains/surrounds and back surounds, I have seven JA-Audio JA-D2's and two JA-SS10...
