Yamaha's entry-level, 3D-ready receiver is a decent purchase for budget buyers and beginners

Plenty of inputs ; Easy to set up and use ; Generally enjoyable sound

No USB ports or onscreen GUI ; Springclip terminals for surround and centre ; Edgy high frequencies at loud volumes

Not bad then, but designed very much with simplicity in mind. Some may lament the lack of multichannel analogue inputs and extra zone outputs for multi-room use, but at this price sacrifices have to be made. The inclusion of springclip terminals for...

Yamaha RX-V371 review

 

The Yamaha RX-V371 is a budget AV amplifier that's a little slimmer than usual. In spite of its reduced dimensions, it still has plenty of connectivity options that should simplify any home cinema setup.

More connections than most people will have devices for, but the lack of an OSD hampers ease of use

Top features, sound, ports + decoders at bargain price!

 

I've had both an RX-V 396 RDS and more recently an RX-V 620 RDS, which this amp is replacing, and the sound is BETTER than the 620 rds, which was a what hi-fi award winner for over 3 years, it was so good, and this new one decodes FULL HD AUDIO in ANY...

1: Spring clips on surround and centre channel (but that's only A: to be expected under £500, And B: a very minor quible)

Yamaha RX-V371 5.1-Channel AV Receiver

 

If you are like me and spent way over your budget on your speaker system just get this inexpensive receiver to offset the price. I will eventually move up to 7.2 but until then this will work for my needs.

This is a decent starting audio/video receiver. I purchased this for $149.99 about 2 years back and it worked fine for a while

I reset to factory settings and now the ARC and CEC functions do not work. I cannot get my TV audio to play through the 5.1 system. This is only a mild inconvenience because I can just do analog audio and use the 5.1 channel enhancer instead of true...

For $127 this thing packs a punch.

 

Get some good speakers, I got the Pinnacle MB8000 (Subcompact 8 sub) whole thing is about $900 and this thing yamaha makes those speakers do wonders!

I've only had this for a few days and let me tell this is thing is loader with many feature but if you are familiar with A/V receiver then you would that the best setting is "straight" with not no audio processing after the DTS/DD is decoded ; Also...

Music didn't sound very tight, I think I just have to make more adjustments to bass and front channels for music but otherwise if you are willing to put it the time to make sure everything is set correctly it will sound amazing. I only use it for...

great receiver

 

powers my polk monitor 50's awesomely :) enough to keep up with a 300w subwoofer soon to also be powering some polk r150's for the rear channel

great EQ settings ; plenty of power ; great price ; 5.1

sometimes takes it a while to switch the video input

Defective

 

Even at a ridiculously low price you'd think refurbished still meant 'worked.'

Great inputs and outputs

Only one speaker out worked, the rest did not
