Yamaha RX-A1010 AVENTAGE 7.1 Channel Networking A/V Receiver Review

 

Yamaha has once again put forth a solid offering in the highly competitive $1k price category with their new RX-A1010 Aventage 7.1 Channel Networking A/V receiver. The performance and feature set of the RX-A1010 should make Yamaha and its owners proud...

Yamaha RX-A1010 review

 

Huge but fluid delivery ; flexibile in source material and partnering kit ; great spec

Doesn’t have quite the fine detail or precision of some ; wirelessness costs extra

The Yamaha will make your movies sound massive and your music sound lush
