This is my second Yamaha receiver and I couldn't be happier!!..I was a long time fan of Pioneer, until mine died last year and I figured I would give Yamaha a try and I'm very glad I did!!..This...
Pros Cons
  • Plenty of power to all 5 channels Sound clarity is unheard of, in this price range Airplay works great 3D with ARC and 4K passthrough On screen menu A
  • Remote is a little bulky and takes some getting used to AV Controller App needs more tasking options
This is my second Yamaha receiver and I couldn't be happier!!..I was a long time fan of Pioneer, until mine died last year and I figured I would give Yamaha a try and I'm very glad I did!!..This receiver does come with the YPAO, but I guess I'm just "Old School" and set mine up by ear. Its does an excellent job processing video and my blu rays look AMAZING!!.The on screen menu is much better on this unit than most I have seen and works great for setting up my speakers..I also love the Airplay and it works very well with this receiver...I don't think you can get much better than this for the price range!!..I am now a loyal Yamaha customer!!
I will make a list of the pro's and con's below..

Pro's--
Plenty of power to all 5 channels
Sound clarity is unheard of, in this price range
Airplay works great
3D with ARC and 4K passthrough
On screen menu
AV controller App--Good and bad aspects
Different subwooofer crossover frequencies
Eco Mode--Great for watching movies, when the kids are sleeping!!

Con's--
Remote is a little bulky and takes some getting used to
AV Controller App needs more tasking options

Overall, I highly recommend this Yamaha receiver, especially if have a set budget in mind..Pair this receiver with a Polk 5.1 set up and you will be one happy movie watcher, with a few extra bucks left in your wallet smile.gif
