This Yamaha Home Theater Receiver brings you HDMI switching and adds scene controls to let you make complex adjustments quickly. With state of the art decoding, multi-profile digital sound processing, and adjustable audio delay, the HTR6050 brings you a bold, unparalleled audio experience from your music and movies.
Virtual Cinema DSP brings you the benefits of surround sound without the full complement of speakers, so whether you have 2, 3, or 5 the music, sound effects, and voices will be placed around your room with the care and accuracy the director or artist intended, and you get the most realistic sound and movement possible. Silent Cinema even lets you experience surround sound through your headphones!
Once you select a control Scene, the receiver automatically starts the component associated with the profile you chose, and adjusts itself for optimal output. This full-featured nerve center gives you brilliant performance and simple operation from all your audio and video components, without overloading the budget!
Finally got a Yamaha
Pros: A high current Yamaha receiver for $199! I could not pass on it. Great sounding and great features, a huge upgrade from my Sherwood.
Cons: Lacks some of the "state of the art" features of other high end Yamahas but for $199 I can forget about those.
Other Thoughts: I'm running this receiver with 2 20-year-old Boston Accoustic A70s, a BOSE® Acoustimass® 5 Series III Speaker System and a new Yamaha Sub. The combination, as obscure as it seems, sounds incredible.

Great with one exception
Pros: Other than the con listed below it's a pretty nice receiver.
Cons: Hopefully this review will help those considering this receiver. I have a PS3 and digital cable box, both capable of utilizing HDMI. This receiver has 2 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output, so I thought this would be perfect to run my HDMI products through. Well it's not that easy. This receiver is only capable of outputting HDMI video, no audio. You are forced into buying optical audio cables to ensure you get audio. I have no idea why they would do this but I reverted to running my HDMI cables to my TV and having only audio go through my receiver. This is a huge con for me, might not be for some, but I fail to see the point in this.
