Summary: I had to order the next step up in receiver and speakers since the shipper damaged mine. Customer service was lacking beyond belief. I had to contact them to find out where my items were only to find out they didn't have anymore. I upgraded and am very pleased with the system.
Summary: I have been using this system for over a year, and I remain very pleased. The sound quality is NOT audiophile excellent, but consider the price. I needed decent sound without spending thousands of dollars, and this system was by far the best "bang-for-the-buck" set up I could find.
Summary: As soon as I opened the box, I felt this would be a great purchase. Having had plenty of experience with other Yamaha products the name is good. This however, for one reason or other, is my first Yamaha amplifier/receiver.
Summary: Nice HTIB for a mid small to midsize room. My iroom is 13x24 and carpeted and sound fills the room without escaping to adjoining areas. I really like the functionality of the remote and how easy it was to get up and running.
Pros: Easy setup, nicely functional remote, wide variety of settings. The speakers are nice looking, the receiver basic display and 4 HDMI inputs. Recevier handles the BluRay, PS3, CD changer and cable box flawlessly. Powered subwoofer is responsive and easily adjusted to meet individual sound desires....
Cons: Some volume issues with commercials on regular TV. Bass can sometimes be overpowering during movies even when set for most parts of the action.
Pros: The sound this system produces is quite fantastic. Sounds equal or better than my friends "top of the line, hand picked" system.
Cons: as said many times before, the speaker wire could be beefed up. works just fine, but when I get around to installing and running the wire through the attic, gunna bump it up to be on the safe side.
Summary: I've got this system set up in my basement home theater and it delivers on the sound and bass. I haven't had a chance to play with all the features, but I'm very pleased so far. The only complaint would be from my wife, who says she can hear the bass two floors up in our bedroom.
