The best, absolutely the best in every aspect.

el-cid2491, Ebay
5 March 2012
  • Summary: The 7.1 sound field is breath-taking, giving new meaning to "home theatre". Tuning each speaker to the size and accoutics of the room is a major deal-maker. I have both blue-ray and 3D TV in the system and the RX-Z7 makes movie-going obsolete. I use HDMI connections for all video inputs.

Yamaha RX-Z7

Sam N., Newegg
24 November 2010
  • Pros: Multi-zone/room set up. Can be controlled with iPhone/iPad yamaha receiver app. Replaced an older Yamaha receiver.. sound quality is fantastic. detactable power cord. binding post on all speaker connections. 1080p up-conversion using Pure Progressive de-interlacing chip.
  • Cons: Extremely heavy, will warp the shelf you place this receiver on (ie.. make sure it can handle the weight). Its very deep, so normal cabinets may not be able to support the receiver + the cable connects in back. Makes a clicking noise when switch inputs. Previous Yamaha receiver was much quicker.

Awesome for stereo - maybe overkill.

  • Summary: I bought this Yamaha RX-Z7 receiver because it was on sale. I've always wanted a Yamaha anyway, ever since the 80's ( I'm dating myself ) when I first saw an advertisement of theirs in a stereo magazine touting their DSP surround sound features.

Nice amp!

Michael S., Newegg
4 September 2010
  • Summary: This was on sale last week and was a bargain. The amp is better than a Yamaha 2095 that it replaces. Sound is noticeably more detailed, dynamic & clear, with the same speakers. The amp is heavy, 45-50 pounds, but you're getting a heavy duty power supply & amp sections which is to be expected for a...
  • Pros: High quality amp section Internet radio Bi-amp capability HD Radio Web interface
  • Cons: HDMI 1.3a (no 3D support) Heavy GUI is a bit primitive

Excellent

Jamie G., Newegg
29 August 2010
  • Summary: The receiver I use in my house is not Yamaha, I have 14 years experience installing A/V. I have used a few of this exact models. All I can say is that the person who has "MAYOR" Problems obviously got a defective product, or could have damaged it themselves with software.
  • Pros: Yamaha always creates great products. I prefer them 10 to 1 over most brands.
  • Cons: Pricing is decent for the features, and quality. I do think it's a little overpriced. You do get what you pay for though when it comes to "Long Run" view.

Ok, so far except for one glitch

Andrew Mcintyre, Amazon
16 June 2009
  • Summary: I would have given this unit 5 stars but I'm waiting on support to get back to me. So far, the person I've been emailing with hasn't impressed... I got it all hooked up and configured myself, no issues. Except for one...
