Summary: Got an incredible deal for this amp a few months ago. At the price I got it ($215), it deserves 5+ stars. Let me tell you why. I am an audiophile. And this doesn't mean that I have expensive gear, it only means I know good, balance sound and that's exactly what this amp gives me.
Summary: I came from an era when component stereo systems was what you did. I still do that. I play several instruments and lay tracks down and mix them on a mixer. It is important to hear the music without inhanced lows or highs. When using the true sound button, what I jear is the way it is.

Summary: Great receiver, exemplifies yamaha's dedication to quality in manufacturing and quality in sound reproduction. I had some connectivity issues with my blu ray, all the new equipment using hdmi or whatever outputs, and this Yamaha didn't have that.
