Summary: This is an amazing sound system for the price. And I can't say enough about their customer service. The unit arrived and busted a fuse within 7 days! :-o Even when Amazon refused to do anything about it, the manufacturer took it back and sent me a knew one within a week. I have enjoyed this system ever sense. Tons of great features and I love the HDMI ports. I plan to have it for a long time.
Summary: This system is truly great and feels and sounds high quality. I had never owned Yamaha audio equipment before so I wasn't sure what to expect but I love it so far. The packaging was all very neat and manageable with easy setup instructions. The included wire is very thin, it may be fine but I purchased 16 gauge to use with it anyway.
Summary: Great sound at a great price. I especially like the multiple HDMI inputs and Toslink connections. Unless you are a REAL hardcore audiophile, you cannot tell the difference between this system and one costing hundreds more.
Summary: I have long been looking for a surround system around this range and decided to go with itsince its previous model the 393BL had one of the best reviews in the mark for its price range. I have never owned a surround system before, but I have installed it for several of my friends in the past. I have to say though that even for an amateur though the instructions provided are self explanatory.
Summary: Props to Yamaha for putting out an entry-level system that offers great sound and options within a receiver at a budget price. Some manufacturers skimp on their entry-level or lower priced electronics but Yamaha got this one right and for my needs, they didn't skimp at all. I upgraded from a 20 year old Sony 2 channel system (connected to the TV via composite cables and PC via 3.5 mm to RCA) that was on its last legs.
Summary: I looked and looked and researched and finally decided on this stereo system to add to my television. It is fantastic and was at such a great price. I am so glad I found this---thanks Amazon for another great product at a great price. Delivery was quick.
Summary: I waited for about 4 months before writing my review of this product, until there were 10 left in stock... but oh well. About my Yamaha sound system... There have been good things about it. -Installation is easy -Sound is great, and as loud as I can imagine you'd ever want it -More preset sound options than you could ever use -TRUE surround sound And there have been bad things about it: -A speaker blew on the 92nd day, had to be replace for $52.98 -The powered subwoofer...
Summary: If you're looking for a great home theater system at an affordable price this is it. I have had no problems passing through all of my 3D content to my TV from this home theater system. There is a ton of control for the audio and even offers automatic and manual lip syncing. If you're an audio/video nut and you notice lips being off from audio by only the slightest bit then this is the home theater system for you. The active subwoofer is outstanding for its size.
Summary: I would rate this system 4.5 stars, but since that is not an option I gave it a 5 because it is definitely better than a 4. The receiver alone is almost enough to rate it 5 stars. The receiver has so many different options that lets you customize the sound to be exactly how you want it. Important Note: I set this system up with the speaker wire that was included at first and was somewhat disappointed.
Summary: After messing around with lesser systems for years, we are in audio heaven with this system. My wife and I was looking for a surround sound for our new 42" Toshiba TV and blu-ray and liked that this system was not a blu-ray with extra speakers. Actully I was amazed by the fact I could hook up all of my audio EQ including my stero VCR (that is nearly 15 years old) and CD player (that is 20 years old). My wife loves the radio tuner.
