Yamaha Rx 397

  • Summary: This receiver is used for FM radio and playing CD's via a CD changer and performs both functions well, with easy controls (other than a few of the b uttons being tiny). For around $200 I cannot imagine a better product.
  • Pros: Sound quality, ease of setting up.
  • Cons: tiny buttons

  • Excerpt: This is a good all round unit and has phono input also. Very clear power output. The only thing I am not happy about is the AM tuner side. I can onlt get one channel if I am lucky. I have other AM/FM receivers that are perfect no matter what the cost. This unit just does not receive AM signals well at all, if any. Buyer beware.

Yamaha RX-397 Verstärker

  • Summary: Summary: Where are the mid-price, mid-fi 2-channel stereo receivers? Is everything going multi-channel, multi-feature? Our upstairs living room provides nearly perfect sound phonics for stereo music. We listen to music, not movies and did not want another multi-surround set (that's downstairs). But no way could we justify hi-fi (ad-com, rotel, etc.), so when this unit showed up new in 2005 it immediately caught my eye.

  • Conclusion: Pour les puristes, cet ampli stéréo est de trés bonne qualité. Il a une durée de vie trés longue. Je leconseille aux personnes qui souhaitent posséder un bon matériel a un prix tres interessant.
  • Pros: On ne sera jamais déçu par yamaha. Le RX-397 présente un rapport qualité/prix incomparable.
  • Cons: Certe il ne possède pas toutes les options qu'on retrouve sur les nouveaux ampli, mais pour une utilisation stéréo, il est parfait.
