Summary: Great, great, product. We purchased this item both for a qualitatively good sound system and at the same time acquire a good basic system that could be expanded to a home theater system. The purchase lived up to all our expectations, a good sound system which can easily be adjusted, especially using a app that is readily available both for apple and android phones and tablets.
Summary: I purchase this receiver after doing research and comparing different brands. The Yamaha YHT-897 has great sound fantastic bass and is perfect for the small to medium size rooms. Also the connectivity to your home IP network is a snap and you can stream Podcast and music. I love it.
Summary: We have this hooked up to an xbox system and a Blu-ray player. Both work through it nicely, and the sound output is good. And we like the options that help us to make voices louder, so we don't disturb our neighbors too much.
Summary: I studied this purchase at stores and online, and settled on this as it was a good value. The box was nearly 100 pounds, which was hard to handle, but the alternative was to ship in two boxes and risk separating them. The product works great, all that was specified, and sounds wonderful. Thank you.

Summary: I am a lifelong Yamaha fan. I used to sell AV equipment for a living and Yamaha has always featured solid construction and a fabulous sound for the price point, regardless of the price point. They build high end musical instruments so they know what horns, drums and guitars sound like. This is my first new Yamaha unit in over 15 years. I choose to go with a AV-Speaker package because I have never owned a match set and I wanted to experience the effect. 1.
Summary: I bought this as someone who's 10+ year old AV receiver didn't have HDMI or even component inputs and the old speakers were shot and the sub had died long ago. So I was in need of replacing everything. There are nicer receivers and better speakers out there but you're not going to get them for this price and many of the negative reviews are simply people who want the sound of a bigger budget system.
