      easy set up

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      the set up was easy, bluetooth synced with my samsung phone, first time i used bluetooth, seems if im streaming from my phone i get out of line of sight or 40 ft away and the bluetooth has connectivity problems, i have no idea how far away speakers would work. everything is pretty straight forward, i easily put in my network password and that was it, but it could not see my external hard drives which is where most of my music is, that is huge, i bought this receiver to play my music just as much as for the home theater. the big knock on that is with all these decoders, Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS Neo:6, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 i can not access which ones i use, the receiver does that for me, my old pioneer allowed me to change them as i please and some music sounds better over different decoders, with this receiver, all i can do is use their "sound fields" such as "music hall in munich", or all stereo or 2,0 stereo which just doesnt cut it, thats why this receiver is going back, along with the on screen display, if i am changing from cd to tv or network or blue ray, i have to go to options, which blacks out my screen except for a perfunctory list of "options" when i use the volume it does not show on my screen but displays on the receiver screen, when scrolling through the sound fields, they only show on the receiver, not the display i was looking for...btw it does have plenty of power, but very high treble, and the upscale made my dlp tv hooked up to direct tv much richer in color and sharper lines, but i would expect that from any receiver that upscales ...for the money, it is a decent receiver for people who might have a problem setting up, who would rather let the receiver choose what decoder to use and who dont listen much to music

      Excellent Sound

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      Out of the box, the surround sound was good... The only complaint I have, and this is why 4 stars instead of 5, I ran the calabration using the included mic, didn't work so well. It keeps giving a W1 error which means that one of more speakers are out of phase, ( + and - wires are reversed). Problem is that it doesn't tell you which speakers are out of phase. I checked all 6 speakers and the wires are correct. I manually set all of the speaker settings levels, afterwards, the sound will knock you our of your seat. One other thing I didn't like is the EQ, there is no global EQ... You have to adjust the equalizer settings one speaker at a time and with 6 speakers, it takes a lot of time. There is an auto setting to let the unit adjust the levels, but the bass isn't booming enough and the high end sounds are way to high pitched. BTW, all of my speakers except the subwoofer are Bose, so there is nothing wrong with the speakers. Either way, once you get it setup right the unit outputs very high quality sound.

      Phenomenal sound!

      My choice was to have an electrician run speaker wires from one end of the house to the other and then down to a walk-out basement, or purchase another receiver. I opted for the receiver both for cost and for the ease of operation (not having to run upstairs to change music, volume, etc.). I then researched receivers online and got great reviews on this unit. I decided to wait for Christmas sales and was happy to see it featured at Best Buy for the best price, including online. (I was very happy to deal with Best Buy as their holiday prices were outstanding.) It was very easy to set up. I also bought an Onkyo 6 disc CD player at Best Buy, to play my music collection. This receiver has Bluetooth for my iPhone (and MusicCast speakers can be added if desired) and a sound jack for my classic iPod that is loaded with music. The sound is absolutely amazing! I am considering connecting a TV, possibly adding surround sound, and also additional speakers in a nearby room. I am looking forward to great sound with lots of options.

      Close to perfection - but Scenes are Lacking


      The unit sounds awesome! - great DSP options that are very well sorted out regarding Reverb/Delay/Room Size. Pass Thru helps eliminate excessive cables. The only two things lacking are: 1) Ability to save Specific Speaker and EQ Settings into a given Scene (Yamaha's Live Sound Mixing Gear has this capability along with Presonus - and is a must for listening to a variety of Input Sources). 2) the AV Controller APP is fragmented regarding interface - half the functions are adjustable with settings viewed within the APP / the other half are not, and require reading the unit's tiny front display or TV Monitor - a minor hassle when listening to music from across the room and trying to make adjustments. These are easily resolved by modifying / updating Firmware - but unfortunately even the Higher Lines of Yamaha don't include these options. Their Live Sound Development Crew needs to spend a week in the AV Development room. Otherwise - this unit is a huge bang for the buck!!

      Great basic A/V receiver

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      I was looking for a minimal receiver that sounded good. This doesn't have a ton of features, but I wasn't looking for a lot. I only needed a few HDMI ports, and my wife wanted the WiFi to play music. I still have to test the music over WiFi, but we've been having good luck with the sound for our TV. Something I didn't expect was that it automatically switches inputs when it detects the signal. That actually confused my wife when she was trying to watch TV without the receiver after watching a Blu-ray. It wouldn't play the sound on the TV until we manually switched the input on the receiver then turned it off for the pass thru. It had been at least as good as expected.

      Great Receiver

      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      With the 4 HDMI connections, I hooked up all my online devices. I also hooked up a blu ray disc player. I now can swing in My computer library into the receiver through ITunes, with or without the Apple TV Device. With Roku, I get Amazon Music, Sirius Music, Tune In music. Did I also say there are more apps on Roku to get even more music. Plus the device natively does online radio stations and Pandora. This is the best technology available now. I've got it hooked up to all Yamaha Ceiling speakers that I had and new woofer and center speaker. The programmed equalizer settings are easily changed, as well as moving from device to device. I would rebuy in an instant.

      I had it less than 24hrs and returned it

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I'll keep this one short..... The sound quality is worse than the Onkyo TX-NR676 that I traded in for this Yamaha. I had distortion issues using the Onkyo as I increased the volume, but this Yamaha's sound quality was just horrible. Keep in mind that I'm using LARGE speakers and so far in my experience the Sony DH550's sound quality was better, The only positive thing I noticed was after a software update, the 4K upscale was available and the video quality of my PS4 was unbelievable! But with the upscale option on, my media center would not display any video at all so in order to get my PS4 and media center to display any video, I had to shut off the upscaling.

      Great A/V Receiver

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      Purchased this receiver to replace my aging Yamaha HRS 5250. This receiver was very easy to set up. Sound quality is great. Works well with my Bose cube speakers. I run the Bose cube directly without the acoustic mass unit. I run a seperate JBL 12" subwoofer. The only con I have is my old Yamaha receiver have line out ports for the center and rear satellite channels to facilitate separate amps for those channels. I run a separate amp and wireless setup on my rear channels. To get around this issue I run a "line level " module on the rear channels to knock down the level coming out of the amp to line level. Great amp.
