Summary: I have always wanted a Yamaha receiver for the sound quality and what I thought was the superior surround sound processing. What I got for this $800 is something that works occasionally in some respects and not at all in others. Let me explain. 1.
Summary: I'm getting in touch with Yamaha since these receivers have a 2 year warranty. We'll see if I get anywhere with them.
Pros: Sounds great when paired with my Polk speakers. Lots of HDMI inputs.
Cons: I first purchased this unit on 4/20/2013. So I've owned it for just over a year and today it died on me. It completely refuses to power on or do anything except be a giant paper weight. Very disappointed considering how expensive these receivers are.
Pros: Nice receiver..crisp sound and easy setup..everything you need to top off a home theatre or listen to CDs..If you want to stream music go elsewhere. Three months ownership and a Ywa-10 replacement, two firmware updates later still no satisfaction.
Cons: The Ywa-10 is a disappointment, it sours the performance of the unit and makes you question whether it's worth the money and setup effort..Until Yamaha improves the network connectivity, I would pass on this receiver.
Great product however stopped working within 2 months of minimum use

Pros: Nice receiver with HDMI and the phone apps.
Cons: After about two months a minimum use it stopped working one day. Called the Yamaha techs to troubleshoot, with no luck. I have to send it in to the manufacture which there is only 4 of them in the USA. So a good deal on Newegg turns this receiver into a higher cost of which I could have bought lo...
Summary: The more technology on a unit, the more things that can go wrong...
Pros: Great when it works.
Cons: HDMI Board failed within the first three weeks. No video outupt to TV from video sources. Called Yamaha and now without a receiver for 2+ weeks awaiting for a replacement, Hopefully the replacement doesn't fail.
Summary: Stay away from this product! I am on my second one the 1st only lasted 3 weeks before it shut down and then there was no volume. I sent it back and received another one over night from Amazon. I plugged in all speakers as per instructions, turned on by sub woofer and it shorted out my $700.00 sub.
