Good, but awkward controls

Keemun, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Don't want to argue with all the enthusiastic reviews here, but... This unit's ergonomics are a problem for me. The layout of my listening area is such that I use the front panel controls rather than the remote, and I don't like them. The buttons are so small you have to hunt for them, even up close, and the labels are barely readable. The buttons are square-edged and stiff, so it's physically uncomfortable to press them repeatedly.

A basic receiver that is well worth the money.

  • Summary: I got exactly what I wanted-a basic bare bones receiver that had a phono input. Sound is great. I use it for my turntable and TV. So are there any problems associated with a bare bones unit? A few. First of all, the phono input didn't work--perhaps because the output of the turntable cartridge wasn't strong enough. This was not a problem as the CD input worked fine for the turntable. The face lighting is mono color with all lights going out after a few minutes.

Versatile receiver

D. Burnett "solo diver", Amazon

  • Summary: This was a replacement for a 20+ year old receiver we had and it seems to do everything it ought to. Great sound, nice and clean, with plenty of hookups on the back. Those of us who still have a record collection will find the requisite low-level input for a turntable back there as well as tape deck, CD, DVD, speakers and subs. A Pure Direct button bypasses the tone controls. A few negatives though.

  • Summary: my brother bought one and it doesn't boom like my hk. it's not bad and has tons of features but the power and bass on the same polks don't come close to my Harman Kardon stereo but if fesatures are more important than sound then its okay.

Receiver für Zweiraumbeschallung

dawahazi, Amazon

  • Summary: Auf der Suche nach einen Receiver mit Zweiraumbeschallung bin ich auf den Yamaha R-S300 und den Onkyo TX-8030 gestoßen. Beide Geräte nehmen sich in Bedienung und Klang nicht viel. Bedienung und Anschluss ist einfach und selbsterklärend. Die rezensierten guten oder schlechten Bässe kann ich nicht bestätigen. Die sind bei beiden Geräten nur Mittelmaß.

Toller Receiver, aber ein Schönheitsfehler

Tomasz M., Amazon
18 April 2013
  • Summary: Technisch ein guter Receiver. Auch die Haptik ist toll. Yamaha ist ein guter Hersteller. Nur ein Punkt stört -mich zumindest- sehr: Das Display ist leider absolut nicht qualitativ hochwertig. Man sieht am Display sämtliche Anzeigenvordrucke sehr deutlich, auch wenn das Gerät abgeschaltet ist. Das ist insofern störend, weil man nicht sofort erkennt, welche Features gerade aktiv sind. Das wirkt sehr billig, so quasi 90er Jahre.

Notice, réglage et puissance

Xavier, avis.darty.com
28 January 2013
  • Summary: Notice ; fort confuse dans l'ensemble, notamment en ce qui concerne le choix de niveau d'impédance (high-low) qui laisse l'utilisateur dans le doute... L'affichage du volume sonore et l'utilisation de la touche de réglage "loudness" sont tout aussi problématiques.
  • Pros: utilisation simple
