About the Impedance Selector...

early adopter in ATL, Amazon
17 November 2013
  • Summary: [Update] I found an article that explains the purpose of the Impedance Selector. Switching over to the 4-ohm setting actually DEGRADED the power, so the sound improvement was all in my mind. I also want to add that I've been considering an upgrade to the Yamaha A-S1000 integrated amp.

Thank god for dials and inputs

L. Russo, Amazon
4 March 2012
  • Summary: After going through a very frustrating experience with a lot of other Yamaha models, the RX-797 was an answer to my prayer. With a turntable and Bose 901 speakers I needed something with a pre-amp loop/tape monitor (so I can plug in the Bose equalizer) as well as a real "phono" input.

Died after only 8 months

PenaltyShot, Amazon
2 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this unit to replace an aging Yamaha receiver that finally quit. Well, it worked great and sounded great -- for less than 8 months. Now when I turn it on, the display is extremely dim, and it turns itself off after a couple of minutes.

A Yamaha livingroom

Butch 007, Amazon
10 March 2011
  • Summary: In 1981 I purchased a new Yamaha Amp and tuner. An A-760 and T-760. 80 watts/ch. What a delight. Over the years I've added many components. A phillips CD burner, a Sony CD burner, a single tray and a 5 disc carasel CD player and several other units.

Power for multi-room setups, and real quality

Basil Argyros, Amazon
25 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought this receiver to power an extensive multi-room household system. It has the power to do that -- actual output at 6 ohms is 120W per channel. It can easily power several rooms at a time.

Yamaha RX-797

Electronics Eng. from MA, Amazon
21 February 2011
  • Summary: I would highly recommend this stereo receiver, particularly if you want a solid two channel system that is able to drive high current into low impedance speakers without breaking a sweat [there is so much drive "head room" -- high dynamic power -- that you never get to distortion-causing "limiting"...

12 February 2011
  • Summary: Yamaha RX-797 Natural Sound Stereo Receiver February 2006 When the time came to replace my Yamaha RX-595 Stereo Receiver I started looking at new two channel stereo receivers. It is striking how limited the choices are.
