Overall a nice unit

Ashley B., Newegg
31 December 2013
  • Summary: * I can't "fix" the input resolution of the HDMI source ... and it's not playing nice with my Wii HDMI adapter ... Yes I could use the upscaler in the Yamaha, but that would require using RCA cables, and that's so 1990...
  • Pros: * Total control can be done through the iOS App (no idea about Android) - I can turn on internet radio from anywhere - zone2 is hooked up to the whole-house sound system) and I don't have to go hunting for the remote :)
  • Cons: * It doesn't airplay video, only audio ... (the photos are slightly misleading show an image on the iPad - although I realise that's probably an album cover)

Great and powerful device for the price

J. Mahfood "MunkyMaraudr", Amazon

  • Summary: The unit itself is great. It has so many functions it would be hard to find a way not to connect your device to it. Two things I wish were better about the unit are the look and function of the on screen menus (they feel outdated and don't look the best) And the remote that comes with the device I would recommend this device to anyone however is the small con's don't completely negate the quality of the machine.

Excellent receiver!

  • Summary: Excellent receiver (my second Yamaha). I do have an issue with getting the sensor box to play my iPad and iPhone, even w assistance fr Yamaha and Apple customer service. Both say it SHOULD work. But does not.

Good sound but some shortcomings

Ed Thorne, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: Sound is very good. Set up is easy but 2nd zone can't use HDMI inputs so you have to wire no digital inputs if you want to use them in 2nd zone. Also HDMI inputs only go to HDMI outputs. I have never been able to get the wireless receiver to work even with several requests from Yamaha. I have tried Mac airport for the wireless input but even that doesn't connect the receiver to the internet. A good unit but not great.

Great unit

clexell1, avsforum.com
3 February 2013
  • Summary: This is truly awesome! It has replaced my bullet-proof Denon 3805. I plugged it in, connected the speaker cables (with banana plugs), re-arranged my HDMI cables (the Denon did not have HDMI switching), connected my network cable to the back and instantly had access to Net radio features. I downloaded the Sony AV app and put the local ip address (discovered in DHCP and I switched to static using same numbers) and the android app worked! Same with my wife's I phone app!
  • Pros: Internal Pandora, Airplay, Netradio. Party mode!
  • Cons: Could have omitted the wireless external access point

FM tuner dead on arrival, but great receiver

Battersea, Amazon
3 September 2012
  • Summary: I received my receiver about 6 weeks ago but I had to take it to an authorized repair shop in town (fortunately I'm not too far from one) because the FM receiver funtions are not working- no channels, no speakers recognized. I would have returned it to Amazon but I missed the 30 day return window by a day. I did have a chance to check out the web-based FM stations and I am pleased with the user interface for those stations- easy enough to navigate.

Overall Very Nice

Kevin, Amazon
20 August 2012
  • Summary: Overall I am very impressed with this receiver. One issue I would caution people is that I have a 20ft connection to my TV on HDMI 1 (ARC Primary - Samsung 55 LED), which works fine as it's cabled with the latest 1.4a HDMI standard cables and connectors. Over the weekend I tried to connect a second TV (Sony 44 LCD) to HDMI 2 and use Party Mode. All I would get is an occasional flicker of both screens.

Sounds good but be careful about your speaker choice

Dabbler, Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to replace an older Denon AVR2809, not that the was really anything wrong with it. I just had a bit of a case of upgradeitis. This amp is a little lighter than the Denon but has a much nicer user interface, rather than the basic text layout of the previous amp this has a proper GUI. That shouldn't make much of a difference but it does add to the perceived value a bit.

Difficult one, this!

monsonia, Amazon
28 March 2013
  • Summary: This is a very versatile piece of kit with a multitude of settings. There is a mutiplicity of good quality connections and 'speaker terminals on the back panel. Yamaha supply a CD, rather than a manual, so be prepared to print off a 138 page pdf because without it you will struggle to set up the receiver. The build quality is very good and this is a fairly hefty item. Be aware that this would not fit in my hi-fi rack as it is too tall.
