Receivers & Amplifiers
“First off I would like to point out that this receiver came with a home theater in a box kit that included a 6.1 speaker setup which explains the high purchase price for this mid range receiver. This receiver features 6.1 discrete and matrix modes, digital and analog surround inputs, 24 dsp presets, 2 switched AC outlets, A/B switch, and a composite/ component video switcher. The best features...” --ikkuranus
“This unit works well enough for the price paid, but there are many issues with the networking and multimedia features. I've had to reset the unit to return proper operations. When playing audio files over network it does not remember last position when powered down. There is no seek or fast forward controls when playing audio. The web console is very limited. It doesn’t provide all the...” --Davis Bacon

“I love it! I'm no audiophile, but I got this for $390 from my local Video Only, and it was a steal. It's powerful, has network connectivity, plenty of inputs / outputs. Love streaming music from my iphone or my PC. Love the Yamaha app although I wish it would control my Sony Blu-ray player. It does, but it's clunky. Have to have a Yamaha Blu-ray player for...” --amityeric
“I have had the same old Sony 5.1 receiver for 10+ years until recent thunderstorms finally killed it. Great excuse to buy a new receiver. After returning a defective Denon 1913, I settled on this. Yamaha has a good reputation for well built products, and I have some 30+ year old Yamaha pro audio gear in the basement that will attest. Setup was easy. The binding posts give you a little more...” --CivilianDave
“I bought this receiver to replace a tired old Sony in my TV room. It was not intended to be a home theater receiver as I already have one of those downstairs. This one seemed to have all the features I needed at a good price. This receiver far surpassed my expectations. I owe most of it to the YPAO setup program. Could not be much easier. Just plug in the microphone, get out of the way...” --golfster
“My last Receiver was a Sony 7.1 channel system with 200W per channel and it served me well for almost seven years, but this new receiver from Yamaha smashes the sound quality at a fraction of the price. The 5.1 80W per channel amplification is punchy, bright, responsive and well balanced. I couldn't ask for more for a small room with the speakers I am running. My current speakers are the Boston...” --Jon-Luke
