Summary: I love this stereo receiver. I bought it because my years old Sony finally died. I needed a receiver that had multiple RCA inputs and a Phono input. I still have LPs! This receiver fit's the bill and doesn't have HDMI lots, that I didn't need. It's a great replacement for my failled unit.
Summary: The Amplifier was as advertised and works very well. I had a hard time finding one with all the connections I needed for my component system and those I did find were quite expensive. This one is worth the money!
Summary: When I set it up, initially there was no sound coming out of the speakers. Of course I checked all connections, wires, etc. I left it alone for a while and then came back and it was all fine - I have no idea what happened - I can't imagine it was because it needed to warm up. But once it got going, it was absolutely great.
Summary: I had an older Sony amp that lost the left channel... so it was time to replace it. I did not have a remote with the Sony, and had to physically walk to it to turn it on or change functions. This Yamaha has every feature that my old Sony had plus a remote. I love this receiver, even has a preamp so I can use a turntable. This prouduct is 1st class all the way, very thought out high quality. True stero receiver of audiophile quality. Great product !!
