Big step up from RXV 377


Big step up in sound from RXV 377. Hearing things in soundtracks I hadn't heard before. Seems to have given my bluejays a new lease of life. Excellent advice and service from Freddy

Good all rounder


Had to replacey onkyo tx-r607 which packed up. Didn't realise how good was the onkyo until I started looking. Yamaha had less connectivity and generally did the same job. Sound a step up but that's all.

Great connectivity and high quality sound


This is my first Yamaha purchase. It replaces an Arcam Solo Movie. I must say the musical quality of the Yamaha closely matches the Arcam which surprised me given it was under half the price. Features are excellent and are far superior to the Arcam. My...
