Great Receiver 11/09/2012
This review is from: YAMAHA RX-A1020 7.2-Channel Receiver
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.
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.
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.
