Summary: It sounds great, and has been working like a champ for 4 years now. The wiring that came with mine however was crap, go and buy some higher gauge wires for your set to prevent it from tripping off at high volume. Other than the wiring that came with it being poor quality, the EQ presets arent that amazing, and $400 is a bit pricey. All that being said, I got it for 300 in 2010, and its been great since the new wires were installed.
Summary: For the price this system is hard to beat. I've had it for at least a year now, still sounds great. The Time Warner universal remote I use has a hard time learning all of it's tricks, and the universal remote that comes with it doesn't work well with my other devices.
Summary: I was upgraded to this model when an older version went out of stock (from Electronics Expo--who upgraded me for free and expedited shipment). Have to be honest, I really like this product. I "thought" I had a pretty good sound system already in place...but once I had this hooked up, the difference was clear and significant. Configuring the speakers and other settings was relatively easy. Some trial and error...but I have everything exactly how I want it.
Summary: I had originally ordered the Yamaha YHT-393BL system. Due to the great responce the supplier ran out of this product. They offered to up grade my order to the YHT-395BL. This system has excedded my expectations. The sub-wolfer is so powerful it shakes the windows. My next door neighbor came over yesterday and asked me to please keep the sound down. Great purchase. I don't think you can beat YAHAMA.
Summary: Wow this is my first RCVR and surround sound I have had for my living room. I have had plenty for my PC but this thing blows me away. It has a lot of functions to change, alter, set that I have not even sat down to do them all yet. The sound of this thing is amazing and you can feel the Bass in you Bum..LoL. Having all my HDMI's going to one box is just amazing.
Summary: Great system for the price,as usual with yamaha products.lots of customization,plenty of hdmi inputs,and most of all a clean and powerful sound.if u are looking for a great system that outperformes its price than look no further.another note my tv is less pixelated since hooking this up.it sounds like total bs,but its the truth.I thought I was alone in thinking this until friends asked me why my tv looked a lot sharper.great purchase
