Summary: Have had several Yamaha receivers, and this one was a much-needed update from my RX-V663. Some of the latest (for this model) improvements are miles ahead of older (five years or more) models. The great things: 1. Android/iOS apps are great.
One of the best purchases I have made in a long time

Summary: Purchased this 16 months ago. Price then was around $850 and well worth every penny. One of the best purchases I have made in a long time. Excellent unit. The WiFi set up is a pain to get set up, especially the first time.
Summary: Oh yeah! This is a newer version of a Yamaha receiver I purchased several years ago. This is a very good mid-priced receiver. Lots of features. Check the reviews on the internet for yourself to see how this receiver stacks up against the others. I am very pleased.
I always thought the speakers were not that good because the sound would have a hiss to it ...

Summary: Above my expectations. Sound quality is exceptional. The wifi adapter is not very modiste tky picking up the network. Needs plugging on off to connect to the network but the Bluetooth works seeker sly. The quality of the sound through the pioneer speakers is flawless.
Summary: Lot of functions you would expect from latest models. Pros Bluetooth, DLNA, Internet, Airplay, Excellent Sound, Automatic test/measurement/adjustment for speakers. All of them seem to work properly (You can go on and on) Cons, Remote is very small for Receiver, need to be double the size, Smartphone...
Summary: I needed a pre-amp. For the money this was a great deal. In the theater I have I have all large amplifiers, 1250 watts any above. My old pre-amp wouldn't do DTS-HD or AC3-HD witch is the best audio on Blu-Rays. After installing it I was knocked down by the sound it reproduced.
Summary: I was sitting there listening to my TV through my surround system and thought, "If I am going to spend a few hours a day watching movies and listening to music, I should treat myself to a receiver that will give me a better sound.
