Summary: I was looking for something simple like a bluray player with a couple of hdmi inputs but i couldnt find anything within my budget. I looked around everywhere for options and i settled on this receiver because it has enough power and features to provide my basement with a crisp sound
Summary: The receiver/amp is very powerful and so is the subwoofer but speakers are too small and do not have good frequency response in midrange. I was upgrading from my Panasonic HTS because it did not have good frequency response in midrange and lacked the richness I needed.
Summary: My old surround system died recently and bought this one based on all the great reviews. I'm really happy with my purchase. The sound quality is great and the speakers are compact. It was also pretty easy to setup and had plenty of inputs to accommodate all of my equipment.Two thumbs up!
Summary: Just received this unit today. Took about an hour and a half for me to hook system up. Cutting and stripping the wires is the only thing that took me the longest. I was able to use this unit immediately without the dvd manual. Wow! This system blew me away. It has an amazing sound.
Excerpt: Due to early failure of another company's amp that I was considering I decided to go with Yamaha. Like my Dad did 30 years ago, it is still a good sounding amp and I hope this one lasts, too. Easy to hookup with many options. The wire's thin but good enough to start (you cut the length yourself).
