Yamaha RX-V1800 Home Theater Receiver Reviewed

 

This is a more upscale model from Yamaha that is "packed with nearly every bell and whistle out there." It possesses a "lively and slightly forward sound that is never fatiguing or unnatural." Our reviewer found the EQ system "topnotch" and far more...

The Yamaha RX-V1800 is as easy to use as it is stylish, making it a wonderful and affordable centerpiece to any home theater, regardless of budget

The RX-V1800's small display window isn't as clear or easy to decipher as some ; The remotes - yes, the RX-V1800 has two - are functional and adequate. However, they are somewhat cluttered and feel a bit cheap, given how the RX-V1800's solid, smart design

The $1,000 receiver market is hotter than ever, as manufacturers clamor to pack as much functionality and power into a simple box for less than the other guy. However, you get what you pay for and, while it may be easy to find a receiver that costs...

Yamaha RX-V1800

 

The design looks like a less imaginative version of Denon's AVR-3808 and has been carefully constructed and cleanly finished, while the underlying specification bears similarities with most of its rivals.

Decent build quality; comprehensive features; warm and cohesive sound quality

Basic menus and automatic calibration system; explosive scores can sound comparatively strained

I am no home theater expert, but overall I have been extremely happy with this receiver.  The speaker calibration utility is excellent and very accurately estimates the distance to speakers, and adjusts volume output to each speaker independently.  The...

More than enough inputs, including HDMI. Easy calibration utility does a good job. Very good video and audio quality

Configuration menu interface could be better, and is slow. Cheap remote
