In my professional home theater


Listen, dont let the price fool you. Its such a great sounding and well rounded system. I dont think I've ever come close to maxing out the volume. About 2/3 is perfect to tick off the neibors. It make me smile every time someone tells me how great my...

I have spent the last year or so constructing a semi-professional home theater as one of the rooms on my basement. As I neared completion my budget got a little tight so I started researching the best sound for my $$$. I didnt want my sound quality to...

Honestly, no. I wasnt expecting anything near what this can put out so I cant complain

Very Pleased


Overall, I have few complaints about this system. For the space I have it is perfect. It provides a solid surround sound experience, without costing a ton of money. Now bear in mind I have a fairly small space, less then 200Sq/f. But for that it hands...

Quality sound output ; No distortion at the Volumes I typically use -31db/+15db ; Solid bass response ; Easily setup

Doesn't strip audio out of source and different audio sources require additional cables. (Knew before purchasing, didn't realize how nice of a feature it would of been) ; Wire that comes with it are junk, not unexpected so I already purchased more ;...

Great product


I had a Sony that went out and replaced it with this and I am very pleased. It sounds very good for the price and seems good quality. It has plenty of options for tweaking it for your set up

Head unit is a little large for limited space. No HDMI audio but is not a deal breaker

Completely Satisfied


I started out with a Yamaha YAS-71 Soundbar, but the sub was DOA, so I sent it back and for (basically) the same money I opted for the 5.1. GLAD I DID. This is much fuller and definitely more "true" surround. I would not suggest that this system...

I can honestly say that this system does the trick. I recently purchased an HDTV (37") and just needed more sound coming fron it than the little speakers. I am NOT a movie buff ( I don't even own a DVD player). I am NOT a "gamer". I just like for the...

Speaker wire is very small gauge (I have 12AWG en route via UPS), but had plenty for my room. The RCA wire to sub is also small gauge, but plenty of lenth ; No real cons

Awesome System! But!...


Beware this unit only has 2 HDMI inputs, yes this might be on the product description, but it might be a problem for some. (Couldn't put that down as con because its not the receivers fault) The one egg is knocked off because it never says the unit...

With amazing sound quality even when compared with several Bose systems that i personally own. Very nice well built satellite speakers that deliver great high to mid range sounds then, with the 100W 8" sub woofer taking car of the low to mid range...

Do not be fooled, this system WILL NOT convert composite video to HDMI! i thought it would because every other Yamaha system with similar configurations is equipped with a Converter, however this unit is NOT! When i called Yamaha tech support and asked...

Psssst - buy the right cables and you won't have any problem - you will love this system! I bought an inexpensive HDMI 4-pack, a toslink optical, and a digital audio coax to hookup my cable box and dvd player an now I am experiencing fantastic hd...

Great receiver, nice speakers and sub-woofer, awesome sound, and outstanding value! What more do you want for about 300 bucks

None. (regarding HDMI pass-through, the audio DOES pass through to the TV along with the video from my cable box. The optical and/or coax cables from your components to the receiver are necessary for digital audio using the receiver - certainly not a...

Does the trick


PCI type adapter.

I like the great sound out of this unit. It's a good value for the price. It's so hard to find a good receiver that comes with the speakers that doesn't cost ~$1000

If you plug your units into the HDMI, it only passes through the video, not the audio, you must use another input, coaxial digital or toslink optical. Also, if you plug something into the HDMI, but then want to output the signal to the TV using the...

Awesome !


Ok, I've been an audio nut for years, owning everything from Infinity, to Bose and I can say with all honesty that for the 'price' you simply cannot go wrong with this system. can pay a LOT more for sound that is marginally better, but for...

Good for a basic home theater


The subwoofer works well, but I don't use it since I live in an apartment and don't want to upset the neighbors.

Nice sound. Priced reasonably. I wall mounted the satellite speakers (they're pretty small). I have my HDTV connected to it via optical cable, and it does a good job of "upscaling" stereo audio (using Dolby Pro Logic and Pro Logic II) into surround....

You don't want to use the speaker cable that comes with this HTiB. It's very thin, and far too short (I haven't measured it, but I don't think they included more than 50 feet of cable). I required about 150 feet of cable for the relatively small room...
