An excellent small media player.

John O, Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: I was looking for a micro or really small DVD player for my computer desk. To my surprise there doesn't seem to be very many options out there. I did buy one a few years ago for a cheap $40 regular price, but it ended up being just that, a $40 DVD player. So I have been looking to replace it with a quality product. I came across Teac and Yamaha and I preferred the look of the Yamaha. It certainly is a high quality product.

DRX-730 is very impressive

  • Summary: I bought this unit on an impulse and boy was I impressed. I recently bought RXV-473 which is now in my bedroom for listening to Sony 5 Disc Carousel. The sound of the unit (30 watts) is better than RXV-473 that is rated at 80 watts of RMS. The DRX-730 is definitely the superior amp. I have had pretty much all makes of Surround receivers and this unit with 100 watt Paradigm subwoofer is an excellent sound system.

Nice Receiver!!!

  • Excerpt: In short I wanted to step into the 21st century with something that wouldn't be obsolete in 5 years (I'm hoping for another 20). Also, AM/FM radio was important (not internet radio, but plain old antena reception radio). After looking at Tivoli: extremely expensive for a bit of style and technology, I finally found what I'm looking for. The fellow above who simply says, "oh God" to describe the sound quality is not exagerating.

Great compact system with surprising higher end features

  • Summary: We have ours wall mounted over the couch with a projector, then feed a cable down to a separately powered subwoofer under the couch. It's been a great space saving setup for us, and after 2 years I happily recommend it. The good: - Excellent DVD playback at up to 1080p, remembers where you are in a DVD and all the settings (e.g.

Nice features, but very underpowered

  • Summary: There aren't many of these mini systems being made right now, so I was very interested to try it as it fit my application perfectly. Unfortunately at the end of the day, it really doesn't deliver much power to the speakers. Especially given the price. I would suggest a traditional receiver any day. While it looks like an attractive option, you will probably be disppointed with the sound.

  • Summary: I like it a lot. CD/DVD, Radio, Amplifier all in one. I would give 5 stars if it came with an iPod connector included with the price.

Overpriced

  • Summary: You could get a separate dvd/media player and true surround receiver that would sound better than this unit. Why charge such a premium for compact?

Superior system -- reasonably priced

Prestinhalf, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: I'm not a musical genius. I do, however, believe that I possess above average auditory taste. I spent the better part of a month researching out the exact system to fit my needs: small room (12 x 14), small shelf area, already-purchased-speakers (that I didn't want to replace), easy to install (I'm kinda old), easy to read instructions, a step up from an archaic 20 year old system that I really liked until it died, some modern technology (that wasn't rocket science --...

Defective Product shipped from Yamaha

M. Apple, Amazon
8 September 2009
  • Summary: We purchased a Yamaha DRX-730BL through Amazon.com dealer Dependable Resource. The first unit was defective out of the box and Dependable Resources shipped out a replacement. The replacement model was also defective right out of the box! We shippped it back requesting a full refund. Either Yamaha has no quality control of these products that are manufactured in Malasya, or Dependable Resources purchases known "seconds" from a NY or Asian clearing house.

  • Summary: At the begining I was planning to buy a Onkyo Bose bundle system 2.1 channel for the staying room, however, I began to search around some other manufacturers and found this Yamaha DRX-730, I choose to buy it without the speakers, I bought speakers separately (JBL ES20BK) I received them this week end and ohhh God it is a really really impressing system, the sound is cristal clear or clearer jaja, I believe Gracie, should send back the system to be checked because mine...
