Great System

 

Great system for small to medium size room. Easy setup, lots of great features, Big sound from a small system with a nice punch from the powered sub.

It's loud with no clipping

 

5.1 works as it should.If you are going to get this, keep in mind, your power needs to be clean. If it isn't get a big UPS and you'll do fine. The sub has it's own power supply and a good surge will kill it (the guy who complained and lives in a place...

Loving it so far

 

Really impressed with what a good receiver and speakers can do for my movie watching experience. So far this device has not failed to disappoint. It can drive you out of the room if you turn it past the negative dbs. I think Yamaha has just won...

Awesome beginner system

 

This system rocks. Set it up easy and got to rocking my blu rays, xbox, HD Television and computer. Lots of HDMI ports. I also got this on when it was on sale for 299.95

The only cons are that this is a cost friendly system. Yes the sound quality is not as good as bose or higher priced surround, but the sound is still awesome and blows away everyday use

Great Product

 

This was exactly what i was looking for. It has four HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output. It has five speakers which sound great for their size. There is also lots of audio customization options. The subwoofer is very loud and has good deep sounding base....

Lasts a week

 

It sounded great for about a week, then it refused to turn on, and there is no way to reset it apart from sending it in for service. I exchanged it for another one, but that one worked for LESS than a week before it would not turn on. So I'm going to...

Nice Receiver but only ok speakers

 

When I first set it up I was a little disappointed in the sound and was not sure if it was the receiver or the speakers. I have almost the same receiver in another room with Polk speakers so I borrowed a couple of those speakers to try it out and the...

Nice Yamaha Receiver with good features and plenty of power for a base receiver. I have an almost identical model I have had a little over a year and I still like it as well

The speakers are only ok. There is no auto on/off on the sub. It has to be turned on and off manually

Well worth the money

 

I bought this as my first home theater setup for my man cave. Have PS3, cable and WD live all hooked up to it and this system sounds great! I am very happy with the sound and the easy configuration of the Yamaha system with the microphone.I did buy...

Excellent system!

 

Consider upgrading the speaker wire for clearer sound

Comes with a real receiver and very sturdy set of speakers ; Supports advanced HDMI features such as audio return and 4K pass-through ; Sounds absolutely amazing ; Comes with everything you need to set it up, including antennas and speaker wire
