  • Summary: Broke 2 months after I bought it. The damn thing just shut off while my friend was very LIGHTLY tapping a rhythm on the top of it. Now the system turns on for a second before shutting back off every time.

Nice clean sound for vanilla installations

  • Summary: This receiver doesn't have HDMI or surround sound or any of the modern day features. It has simple RCA sound inputs, and simple two-conductor speaker wire outputs. It reminds me of the kind of receiver I used to have in the 1980s, except that: - it's more powerful, at 200 watts - it has a remote...

  • Summary: I am very happy with this Yamaha receiver. I bought it to replace an older Fisher RS 717, which had '0.9% total harmonic distortion' displayed on it's faceplate.

Excellent stereo receiver for the money

  • Summary: For starters, I've only had this hooked up for a day and I'm not even running decent speakers yet, BUT, so far I'm very impressed. I already have an expensive 5.1 set up in my living room and I was in the market for a fairly small 2.1 system for a small home office.
