Broken after 1 year


Works great when working

The unit will no longer connect to my television, it appears that the HDMI output is corrupted. I unplugged the HDMI cable and attached directly to my cable box and it works fine, so definitely the unit. Was able to fiddle with it and get it working,...

Great Receiver


Overall for the price I am very pleased with this unit and would buy again..

Nice Audio Video Interface ; Also love the fact it will play MP3 files from a USB Thumb drive

Sometimes a Device like my DVD player or Roku player will lockup when switching. Could be my DVD Player itself though

Fantastic, almost perfect


Fantastic budget receiver with HDMI pass through

Unfortunately I discovered a few things that are less than perfect, but overall it is great ; 1) No built in up-converting from analog to digital. My Wii has component output, but that will not upconvert and send out over the HDMI to the TV /...

After A Year


I won't purchase another Yamaha product due to this frustration. Plus, this occurred for the first time one month after my year warranty expired. First Sony, now this...who should I try next?

Expense to feature ratio is pretty good

I've seen this issue on at least one other review here, so it must be a common issue with this receiver. The receiver stops recognizing HDMI Input and requires reset back to factory defaults, reboot and then you're back in business ; RX-V373 Reset...

Value features


25 foot toslink lol..

Like the 2nd optical AV input. Using that to make use of playing mp3's out of a onboard realtek SC on compu.. That way I can listen to one card for my 2 channel dedicated music and If I want to switch it up I can run it on the Polk entertainment...

Nothing really so far considering the price was value/quality does what I wanted it to do. Had another yam little bitty speakers and passive sub for years. this is way better!! Thank you yamaha and newegg

Love it, but...


Great entry level receiver. A lot of bang for the buck.

Plenty of connections and configurations. Excellent sound quality, connected to Yamaha NS-SP1800BL 5.1 speakers. Plenty of bass, highs, etc. Many DSP options. Tuner works very well even in my basement "Man Cave". iPod navigation is above average,...

Legacy components connected thru component out connections must use the component in on the TV. This can make switching between devices lengthy. When watching non-HD channels the screen goes blank when accessing on-screen menus and changing volume....

Good receiver... once you work all the kinks out.


None so far.

Awesome sound. This totally beats the stuffing out of my 10+ year old Kenwood receiver ; HDMI switching is nifty.* (*more on this later) ; The YPAO automatic speaker setup is just AWESOME. Plug it in and get the mic into position... and the receiver...

I was frustrated with this receiver at first... I had my Panasonic Blu-Ray player and my Tivo Premiere connected via HDMI at first and everything seemed to be going well ; After about a day, I would power everything up (TV, Tivo, and receiver) to watch...

User friendly and affordable


This was easy to set up and learn the controls. The quality and features exceed my old high-end S**y. Price was the main factor, and I got more than my money's worth. Sound is excellent even on AM stations

LipSync is a tiny bit off from what the TV's audio produces, even after maximum Receiver adjustment. However, the Receiver seems right on, so maybe the TV audio is what's off, and my TV has no adjustment for this, so I mute the TV and use the Receiver

Wondering if this was a good buy.


Still giving it some time. sigh

Easy component connections, iPod/iPhone connectivity, and decent form factor

BASS BASS BASS - where is it? I'm replacing an old Yamaha receiver from 2000 that kicks this receivers but when it comes to my sub woofer connection. I'm not finding that I like this receivers sub woofer sound. It's lacking. Maybe I didn't read...
