Yamaha RX-V573


AV receivers are notoriously jam-packed with features, most of which you'll never use. Yamaha's RX-V573 ($500 street price) is notably lacking many of those niche capabilities common on other receivers, but it also falls short with the one feature that...

The Yamaha RX-V573 has built-in networking functionality, including AirPlay and Internet radio. It can also be controlled with a smartphone app available for iOS and Android. And its sound quality is solid with both music and movies.

Nearly every competing receiver offers more HDMI inputs at this price level. The included remote is difficult to use, and the user interface looks painfully dated.

The Yamaha RX-V573 is a serviceable 7.1 AV receiver, but with only four HDMI inputs, competing models offer a better value.

"Very Good Yamaha Receiver"


I have had this unit for only a short time. My initial impressions are quite good. It has a number of options which are relatively straightforward to set, with a few exceptions noted below. What made the setup easier for me was having had a Denon...

+ Sound quality of this system is great

- No independent volume control for each zone

Great receiver


Bi-amping capability(which really does make a big difference despite what others say), easy to set up with the included microphone to optimize in any room, on screen display, excellent sound quality

makes an occasional, annoying static noise but it is very brief and not very disruptive

Cats meow really like it.


I miss an Equalizer. Maybe I don't like all the highs or maybe I like to feel the base. Maybe at the end of the movie "ET" I like to turn up the 1K setting for those last words. Maybe I like to turn the base down for my friend because she likes to...

This device will pass 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz ; 4K machines won't do 60 Hz at their max only 24 Hz ; Passes a 3D signal just fine ; For this new system I would say it is good at everything and a beginner can accomplish what they want in the basic and then...

Not con but don't expect this to drive a 2 ohm load at 250 watts. The raw power supply isn't there ; Precursor to following paragraph ; Internet radio comes at quality vs. cost ; 128 kbps (quality) for 100 people for 1 day is $100 for bandwidth only ;...

good value


Very pleased with the sound quality....sounds better than the (more expensive) Denon it replaced. Missing a few features and has a lot of stupid sound effects that are not needed, but overall a good value.

Bells-Whistles in place of Performance


Remote is overly complicated. Recever is very light. Yamaha obviuosly is focusing on useless gadgets, while trying to appeal to the consumer, rather than performance. I do not agree with this philosophy. I purchased this unit thinking of the Yamaha...

Component and composite connections are their own animal and not HDMI-protected. If you want all sources to roll through the HDMI connection, they have to be HDMI to begin with. Example: a Nintendo Wii does not use HDMI. Blu-Ray, most cable/satellite...

Merges all HDMI sources into one HDMI output for our TV ; Flawless playback of our music collection via network (AirTunes) without the need for an Airport Express by simply plugging it into the ethernet hub we use to split our connection in our...

We waited too long to upgrade and didn't know what we were missing vs. our old A/V receiver

Great Receiver!


Stable into a tough 4 ohm load (Magnepan MMG's) ; Fast source switching ; HDMI passthrough with audio return and 3D passthrough ; Lightweight - Weighs half as much as my old Yamaha ; Great remote ; Excellent sound quality

Doesn't cook me dinner

Great price to value, great sound quality

Limited connections, some difficult controls
