    This was my second yamaha receiver. After upgrading to a 4k tv, I did a lot of research and was looking for one to pass 4k content to my tv. Connections:TIVO DVR, Roku, FireTv. When all were connected to the receiver I had issues of needing to switch from either the Roku or the Firestick to just watch programming through the Tivo. Then sometimes the receiver would auto switch to another device while watching. Very frustrating. The second thing is the remote design. No dedicated input buttons like my older model. Had a cheap feel to it. The Pros: I did enjoy the yamaha app to control the sound outputs. There was a definite increase of sound to my speakers that sounded amazing. Have 7.1 set up of mixed speakers as I am gradually upgrading to Klipsch. Currently running 3 klipsch, 2 cerwin vega, 2 sony bookshelf and 1 yamaha sub. Because of my connection issues, I decided to connect all my hdmi connections directly to my tv and I was able to enjoy without the auto switching. Because of the high ticket cost I did not see this worth keeping. So I returned it and resumed using my older model with no problems.

    I purchased this for the audio processing for voice. Often TV shows and movies have sound tracks that are difficult to hear the voice track. This system not only allows you to separate and increase dB on voice track but has presence speakers that allow voice tracks to either go to higher placed speakers (facing audience) OR overhead. Treehis dramatically helps hearing challenge people. In addition, this model allows up to 8 locations to be sampled ro fine tune how the speaker system works. So common viewing positions are optimized. Many systems only sample for 1 location, sub optimizing the audience's experience. Rhis also provides 8 programmed settings for source, speakers, erc for single click accessing. Great system, a little pricy but after using for a month well worth it

    Moving up from a Sony, to a Pioneer, to a denon, and then to this is a whole new world of sound. The difference in sound this has compared to the others I've had is immense. Clearer, sharper, less noise, better highs, tighter bass and better response all around..... On the same speakers. Even the surround effects work better, better stage, better movement, more accurate spacing, and more accurate timing. The voice tones are much better and there is zero need to boost the voice on the center channel compared to what I had before. The auto sound setup and calibration actually works! I haven't need to do a single tweaking on any of the channels. I would suggest this Yamaha over ANY of the other brands I've tried in the past. Also, easy set up, works exceptionally well for blue ray HD pass-through, no issues on the video, no issues getting the TV, Blue ray, and receiver talking. Just flawless setup.

    After researching multiple receivers, I upgraded to the Yamaha RXA880 and an happy with my decision. This receiver is easy to setup and configure, has 8 sets of presets and can be controlled via the Yamaha Controller application. We can turn the receiver on and off, change input sources, change settings and the volume from our iPhones and iPads, The inputs and presets (called Scenes) can be easily renamed, which allows you to switch to input sources using a name (i.e. BD, Cable, Game, Apple TV) rather than a number (1-8.) The documentation in the box is brief and I recommend downloading the complete manual from Yamaha which includes information on the Yamaha applications and more setting information. https://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio_visual/av_receivers_amps/rx-a880_u/downloads.html

    Recently upgraded to a 4K TV and my old Yamaha receiver only supported 1080p passthrough. So I upgraded to this baby and so far I am loving it. I was very worried about HDMI 4K passthrough with my Xbox one X, but it works flawlessly and all features including HDR10 work great as passthrough. The dedicated HDMI 3 input is designed for gaming (it even says it on the HDMI port) does a nice job of minimizing HDMI lag. Lastly, the Yamaha iOS app was super useful for the initial install. Yamaha does a great job of explaining what each feature does in this neat little app. Anyway, now that its all setup I cant wait to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in sweet sweet 4K HDR with Dolby Atoms!!!

    I purchased this to replace my 7 year old Denon. I decided on Yamaha this time around since they don’t seem to have quality control issues that the other brands have. So far it’s awesome! It’s nice to have all my 4K devices go through one central unit and not have to mess with the TV. I chose this unit because it was the least expensive Yamaha that had PRE-AMP outputs for all channels. I run dual center channels and use the PRE-AMP out to drive dual amplifiers (one for each speaker).

    A lot has changed since I bought my last receiver. This unit has the solid build and outstanding audio performance I have come to expect from Yamaha. But the additional capabilities of streaming audio, MusicCast, multi zone capabilities, YPAO, numerous HDMI connectivity/functionality and smart phone apps bring the system to a new level. My home audio and surround sound setup has been simplified, decluttered and better controlled so that it works the way it should of originally with my last system over a decade ago.

    My biggest annoyance with this receiver, the amount of time it takes it to switch signals (turning it on, waiting for it to go from HDR back to Dolby Vision). The "AI" part is pretty useless, and not artificially intelligent, at all. That said, it's an incredibly powerful receiver with great sound. I can hear stuff, without resorting to increasing the volume so high, my neighbors hear it.

    Bought this unit to replace a 7-year old Sony A/V receiver that had only 2 HDMI inputs. This was quite limiting when trying to run a TV, VCR/DVD, BluRay, WII, Xbox, Switch through a common receiver. This Yamaha really fit the bill well with 7 HDMI inputs (and 2 outs), plus has the bonus of MusicCast, and control via a smartphone app (in addition to standard remote). Sound is awesome, and configuration was easy.

    I have moderate service related hearing loss. I've been using a sound bar for my TV for a few years and still either can't hear or have to turn it up so loud its obnoxious to others. I used this as the basis for my sound system upgrade. This receiver coupled with Definitive Technology speakers are a great combo and I wish I hadn't waited so long to do it!

    Replaced a Sony reciever with the Yamaha 880 along with the Klipsch reference speakers and 2 polk 400 watt subs. I really like the difference of the power output with crystal clear clarity. It was easy to setup. I dont like the remote it is heavy and bulky, but that is the only downside to this setup. If you have a decent sized room this is the reciever to get.

    So far I am using my receiver as a hdmi switcher between all of my devices. The harmony elite works wonderful with it. Only speakers I have attached are outdoor defted speakers which are extremely loud and powerful. Knowing can only go 3/4 volume or less because they will wake all of the neighbors I know Themis receiver packs a punch.

    I love the performance of this receiver. It has the power to bring the room to life. The Zone 2 has impressive power as well, all around the function and performance are what you expect from Yamaha and MORE. THIS is why I have owned Yamaha products since 1980!

    I have three other Yamaha receivers including a RX-V1 and this is very complicated. Almost impossible without hooking up to a tv or monitor Yamaha;s support is slow so not really helpful. Once set up the sound is very good.
