Yamaha HTR-5860 review: Yamaha HTR-5860

 

Yamaha HTR-5860

Seven 110-watt channels; XM Satellite Radio ready; simple autosetup feature; extra front Presence channels; two component-video inputs; upconverts composite and S-Video signals to component; A-B speaker switching.

Generic styling and cheap feel; only two component-video inputs; no HDMI inputs.

Yamaha's midprice HTR-5860 A/V receiver loads up on useful features, and it sounds sweet.

Yamaha HTR-5860 black

 

While the company's list of A/V receivers is a daunting 20 strong, Yamaha's HTR-5860 stands out as offering great bang for the buck, listing for $550 but available for much less online. It's packed with useful features, and it sounds sweet. While the...

YAMAHA 7.1-Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver HTR-5860

 

I actually ended up with this one after ordering the 5760, but was sent the 5860 instead. I believe the only difference being the built in XM interface. Worthless in my opinion. I would think XM is subsidizing the intergration, but at a $200 premium i...

A slew of inputs/outputs Heavy features, simple onboard interface Audio video switching/wide video bandwidth

Very complicated remote functioning. XM intergrated tuner is worthless

this has to be the most underrated receiver that I know of. I bought mine at a thrift store for $30. And it outperforms my Denon AVR 5700 (flagship model from Denon made in japan, weighs 50 lb & cost $2,500). Yes the sound is fantastic & it's an...

This is a stealth for the price less than $500. I am a big fan of Denon and Yamaha. This receiver is two thumbs up all the way. The cleam sound and the build quality give this receiver the biggest bang the the buck at entry level receiver. It sounds so...

I bought this receiver on the advice of many audioholics who say it uses the same processor as the higher models, I'm running 5.1 at the moment at 8ohms, The receiver sounds clear and precise. It has more connections then you can poke a stick at, the...

Yamaha HTR-5860 A/V Receivers

 

I've owned an HTR 5250 for 3-4 years and loved it. This, the YPAO and additional flexibility prompted me to upgrade to the 5860. The 5860 will accommodate nine speakers, has many more DSPs and the 2 channel stereo sounds great. That being said, the...
