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

9-channels of amplification offer unprecedented flexibility. For superior sound-field envelopment, add Front Presence speakers to a standard 7.2-Inch theater or, for multi-room entertainment, power three independent zones. For higher room tuning accuracy, an improved YPAO calibration microphone is included. Compressed Music Enhancer expands the bit rate of stereo PCM signals to improve the...
“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
Yamaha HTR-6280BL 7.2-Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver In Black
“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
“This is truly awesome! It has replaced my bullet-proof Denon 3805. I plugged it in, connected the speaker cables (with banana plugs), re-arranged my HDMI cables (the Denon did not have HDMI switching), connected my network cable to the back and instantly had access to Net radio features. I downloaded the Sony AV app and put the local ip address (discovered in DHCP and I switched to static...” --clexell1

“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
