4 out of 5 eggsPlenty of power, lots of features

Pros: Power rated at 110W with honest specs (2 channels driven, 20-20 0.06% THD, 8Ω), rated for 4Ω speakers, phono input, YPAO with multi-measure, 7-band manual parametric equalizer to tweak YPAO settings, can browse iPod via receiver remote or directly, network audio is convenient (Net Radio, SiriusXM, Pandora), preamp outputs, bi-amp capable. “Learning” remote handy to control disc player and TV.
The on-screen menus are clear, useful, and attractive. Networking is a cinch—I plugged it into Ethernet and it updated itself, AirPlay works great, I have access to all the net audio, and it found my DLNA files on the network.
Can configure surround back to use one or two speakers. 33 pounds of ground hugging weight must mean there’s good stuff inside.

Cons: No major cons. Only one crossover setting for sub whereas other receivers have a crossover setting for each set of speakers (fronts, surrounds, center, etc.) which is useful if you have different non-full-range speakers. I’d also like finer increments for the crossover settings—it skips from 60 to 80Hz but I want 70. Another entry-level receiver allows 10Hz increments from 40-200Hz. It runs warm compared to the HTIB it replaced. This unit like many receivers with 2 subwoofer outputs does not allow separate levels/distance/YPAO/PEQs per subwoofer, however the next model up (RX-A2020 for $500 more) does some of this. Won’t recognize my old iPod (4th generation) on USB but the old HTIB did. Net Radio bookmarks are little inconvenient to set (must go to web site). Buttons on remote are tiny and many are the same shape. DLNA browsing interface is not as quick or convenient as my Blu-ray player, chokes on playlists with more than 96 songs (at least with firmware 1.41).

Other Thoughts: This replaces an inexpensive HTIB I was using to drive my bookshelf speakers and subwoofer so of course it’s a huge upgrade. The speakers sounded fine but I discovered that the HTIB has a fixed crossover at about 100-120Hz (much higher than the 75Hz my subwoofer could reach) and also rolled off bass below ~35Hz (higher than my subs 25Hz range) so now I’m getting all the bass I’m entitled to. The 4Ω impedance capability is handy for the Magnepan MG10s I’m using for surrounds (dipoles work great here and there’s not enough wall clearance in front).

Can set to run in “Eco Mode” but manual does not say what it actually does.

Lots of features I’ll probably never use like component video, S-video, 4k upscaling, multi-zone.

4 out of 5 eggsYamaha has upgraded to 1030

Pros: Being able to control with your smart phone Apple or Android is great. This receiver is powerful it blew my woofer when I was playing the 1812 overture. Great sound and network connectivity.

Cons: This model has been replaced by the RX-A1030 which has a improved DAC. It is the same price so get the new one.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible Receiver!

Pros: Easy set up, extensive features, great design, incredible sound.

Cons: No printed manual. No digital sources to Zone 2.

Other Thoughts: Extremely happy. I first purchased the Yamaha RX-V671 (673) and was very happy with all the features but only somewhat pleased with the sound. This receiver blows that one away on the sound quality. This really woke my speakers up, sound is crisper and the bass is tighter, overall much more colorful and robust sound. In one hour I had this thing completely set up including firmware update, microphone calibration and full network/airplay access to my entire collection of music. I can sit on the deck and control Zone 2 with my Iphone and still have another source playing in the TV room. If I had bought the 2020 model I could have bi-amped my front speakers and really had great sound. (you can do it with this model if you do not run Zone 2)

1 out of 5 eggsSave your Money

Pros: Easy setup

Cons: I purchased this to replace my 10 year old receiver to have the 3D and hdmi. Can not get decent surround sound. My old receiver sounded 10 times better. Spoke to Yamaha and they could not resolve the issue. They said "return it if you don't like it"

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Receiver

Pros: Many HDMI inputs. Also supports older connections (digital optical, digital coax, component, RCA). All the older connections are re-configurable to which A/V output the correspond with. Sound is very crisp, and not exaggerated. HDMI Standby is a great feature - you can still select the input with the receiver "off" and it will go straight to the TV - sound comes out of the TV as well. Then if you turn on the receiver, it takes over the sound which no longer gets sent to the TV. Upgradable firmware is a great feature (seems to be more and more common with devices these days), allows manufacturer to create software fixes for issues. Yamaha adds features on occasion (now supports SiriusXM radio over internet - though I haven't tried this).

The YPAO seems to be accurate. It was able to determine the distance of each speaker from the viewing location.

Cons: I haven't had any issues yet. I did a lot of comparing, and read the instruction manual before purchasing - so I knew exactly what I was getting.

Other Thoughts: I have it set up as 5.1 for now (since I'm upgrading my old home theatre system). I'm considering going up to 7.1, but not sure how much difference it makes.
