Overall a nice unit

Ashley B., Newegg
31 December 2013
  • Summary: My unit is situated out of site, so the IR remote can not connect directly. I use a basic IR repeater (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2C516M4574) pluged directly into the back of the Yamaha to control it.
  • 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 :) * It plays MP3 from my file server without an issue ... * It built in support...
  • 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) * 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 upsc...

Michael O., Newegg
21 July 2013
  • Pros: sounds is pretty good for price, mp3 interface I don't like because reads meta data but can't sort by file name
  • Cons: probably would get more with h/k brand for the money

Great and powerful device for the price

J. Mahfood "MunkyMaraudr", Amazon
4 May 2013
  • 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 Two things I wish were better about the unit are the look and function of the on screen menus (they feel outdated and don't look the best) And the remote that comes with the device I...

Good receiver, wifi adapter a disaster

Henrik M., Newegg
2 May 2013
  • Pros: Good sound/image. Tons of connectivity, in particular HDMI. Pandora and AirPlay works very well when connected through UTP. The on-device display is fairly large (useful when the TV isn't on).
  • Cons: YWA-10 next to useless (setup is fairly easy, although some of the input field suffer under strange names or translation issues, but it constantly drops off the network). On-screen menus are a little klunky (entering IPs, addresses etc is particularly cumbersome). iPad/iPhone app doesn't offer an...

Nice

Joseph H., Newegg
26 April 2013
  • Pros: PLENTY of inputs! Easy to use and set up. Sound has been very good with no evidence of straining.
  • Cons: Remote is not backlit and with the myriad small buttons is difficult to use while viewing in low light situations. Conversely, there does not appear to be a way to turn off the front panel display and is somewhat distracting while watching a movie. The user manual is on CD with no paper manual ne...

Hair raising

Anonymous, Newegg
22 April 2013
  • Summary: Could include a DVD with setup and use and throw in some music videos
  • Pros: The usual good service from Newegg. Was on sale for close to half price with free shipping. Highly controlable unit. Refines video signal as well, will go well with new plasma tv. Started out playing and viewing Adele at Royal Albert Hall DVD and was very impressed even before we have started to ...
  • Cons: Get banana plugs to connect speakers as its a tight fit with 9 pairs of speaker outputs. This reciever is very smart and is a bit daunting to setup. Remote should be double its size so one can see the fine print for all the buttons but will download remote app for andriod. This is a highly techni...

Nice!

Paul D., Newegg
19 April 2013
  • Summary: There are so many options on this unit it will take a while to figure them all out but that is fun for me.
  • Pros: Upgraded from an RX-V765 that did not have 3D or network capability. I wasn't expecting an upgrade in sound but to my surprise this unit sounds better. I added the presence speakers when I did the upgrade and find sometimes I like CINEMA DSP 3D. Fantastic $479 Newegg SALE price. Great sound with ...
  • Cons: Remote has tiny buttons (I need reading glasses to use it). Wireless setup should be less complex (should be able to type in password and be done like my PS3 and TV). No individual speaker crossover points (one setting for all).

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.
