There's just too much in the manual on too many unnecessary features and settings

Dean J. Pasquale, Amazon
17 November 2014
  • Summary: It's taken me 4 years to figure how to operate the basics. I don't know if this exact model is sold any more, but Yamaha offers something similar. There's just too much in the manual on too many unnecessary features and settings.

Nothing couuently available comes close for the cost

  • Summary: I know this is no longer available and that is a shame. When I got mine the price was reasonable for the capability it offered. Anything close to the same capability in today's market is in the $1K-plus range. If you are lucky enough to have one, keep it.

Great sound, good quality, but don't lose the manual.

  • Summary: After doing a lot of research and reading many reviews, I decided to go with the receiver. If I have to upgrade, I'll be getting another Yamaha for sure. All of the channels have the same high-quality dacs and amps and they sound great. The auto-calibration feature works well.

  • Summary: This replaced an older model yamaha. The setup worked faster on the older model, on this model I had to do it three times before it worked. Another thing the volume was much lower I used to have it set at -32 on this model its playing at -23 but it still sounds great and glad I bought it.

Top of the class for this price point

fcbarcelona1964, Ebay

  • Summary: Very happy with this receiver. Sound is CRYSTAL clear. Interface is very easy to use though display is not state of the art. I love the optical and HDMI inputs (though I would not mind seeing 5 rather than 3 HDMI inputs).
