Yamaha RX-V471


Yamaha Corporation, as we all know, is a gigantic multinational company. In the music world they are known for their musical instruments, in the automobile industry they are known for their motorcycles and in the AV world they are known for their...

Solid Device


Great for the price of $200!

Has various surround settings depending on what I listen to (when I use the music setting, it sounds phenomenal) ; Have 4 HDMI inputs, allowing me to easily switch from my PC to my cable box to my Wii to my USB without touching my TV's input settings ;...

Can't have multiple YPAO profiles ; Took me awhile to get it to work with my video card's HDMI, but I did eventually

good sound quality for the price, easy to setup, auto-switches decoding based on inputs: for instance, if you enable 5-channel stereo (stereo upmix), you can toggle back to DTS if your source is suddenly outputting 5.1 channel. lots of options for...

only able to configure some things via on-screen menu, which is a pain because I only use it as a receiver for my PC (I don't want to have to have the receiver on all the time just to see video, so I have to unplug from PC and plug into receiver to...

RX-V471 No problems with Tuner or Sub Output


I was concerned about the prior reviewer claiming Tuner performance was poor. Using the same (old) antenna that was on my Sony AVR, the RX-V471 is pulling in FM stations better than the Sony did. Also happy to report that the LFE/Sub-Output is working...

Very good price/performance value

Great first Home Theater Receiver


Got this on sale for $199 delivered. It's the year old model, appears the only thing different than the current model (at $150 higher price tag) is the exclusion of Apple AirPlay. If I decide I want it I'll buy AppleTV for $99 separately. Bought this...

None so far

Best value 5.1 receiver


Great sound and value at $300 minus $80 gift card ($220 net). Easy setup and self adjusting with the included microphone

Much larger than my old receiver but seems to be pretty standard in size for this type of equipment. It makes a large click sound when it turns on and off, kind of annoying

Consumer review by:

Same model, better price


Great unit. Lots of inputs. Has the Audio Return Channel on the HDMI-out. Plenty of power. Lots of audio decode options.

Just a heads up, this unit has 2 model numbers, but they're the exact same. The HTR 4064 is the same as RX-V471. However, many outlets list the HTR at a cheaper price. Google it yourself or look on Newegg... The specs are the same. Also in the Yamaha...

None. Great buy

Bang for your Buck


I finally got around to buying a 5.1 system (yes, it was time to leave the stone age), and really couldn't be happier with this purchase. Great surround sound and lots of features without breaking the bank. If you're spending countless hours reading...

1. Beautiful dynamic range. Listen to a classic recording like the remastered version of Rush 2112, and enjoy knock your socks off rock at one end of the DR spectrum, and dead quiet at the other end. Not even a hint of an annoying hiss or hum of any...

1. Can't customize the impedance level of each speaker. It's 6 ohms or 8 ohms for all (C, LF, RF, LS, RS) ; 2. You need an HDTV with an HDMI input (or HDMI to DVI adapter cable for some older TV's) in order to use the receiver's graphic user interface....

great receiver


I believe for the money spent I couldn't buy a better receiver. The YPAO is easy to run in order to zero in your sound. Perfect for noobs. I'm using the Polk 70's up front 30's for surround & PSW505 sub. After running YPAO I went in to see how the...

Easy setup, YPAO takes the guess work out of setting up your speakers. multiple HDMI inputs. Great overall sound running through my Polk series II speakers. Different sound combinations to pick from

Gets alittle hot, not bad though

Great Sound - Great Price


Haven\'t hooked up the 5.1 yet, but Stereo is awsome. Enough power for most. Drives my two Yamaha and two Polk Audio effortlessly. Almost as good as my 1970\'s tube Marantz. Tons better than my Pioneer. No Manual, you have to download and print the CD...
