Summary Of Your Review Makes Your Ears Smile
This unit came on market 3/4/14. I received it 4/1/14. It replaces a Yamaha RX 397, which I was very happy with. The initial setup with YPAO microphone is fast & easy. The menus displayed on your TV are easy to read. The Yamaha display panel is bright & blue; information in large & small letters. I connected a satellite receiver & Sony BluRay via HDMI and an Onkyo CD player via digital coax. The first sound out of the box is very good. You'll want to tweak the sound to your tastes, and many, many adjustments can be made.It takes a little time to learn the menus & adjustments, but 95% of them make sense. The owners manual (85 pages) is a CD-ROM. I prefer paper. The unit has plenty of power for my room size, which is 20' by 11'. Volume level is 0-97; 60 is usually loud.The sound is clear & strong with good definition and depth. Yamaha's natural sound is a good thing. Yamaha uses quality parts to produce "clean sound". FM radio reception is good. This is considered an entry level receiver, but I'm happy with it. The feature list is long. Good value for the money. The unit looks very cool !! I think Yamaha has a winner here. :)
