This review is from: YAMAHA RX-A3020 9.2-Channel Network AV Receiver
Pros: Easy to use controls. Great sound. Feature rich.
I replaced a 10 year old Marantz SCE7300 because I thought the Marantz had a thermal issue and would go into protect mode on any loud sharp noise. As soon as I turned on the RX it told me I had a wire fault and which speaker wire it was. Sure enough when I traced the wire I found that where I had put in a heating vent register the screw had just barely punctured the wire. Lucky for me the puncture was in a place in the wall that was easily accessible. I contemplated returning the RX, given that I know now the Marantz was just fine, but do enjoy the RX sound and features so decided to keep it.
Cons: I won't ding it for these mostly because it is a feature rich piece of equipment so you need to know what you're doing - but:
Initial setup can be complex. The manual (which is only on CD) could be better written. Some parameters are not explained in the manual and so you're left wondering if what you think they'll so is what they really do.
I will add though that the YPAO acoustic sound analyzer is very easy to use and works quite well.
Other Thoughts: Provide a paper book manual. Explain all features thoroughly as even if one is rather familiar with the overall technology the proprietary implementations can be hard to understand.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The first one did cr_p out, but SilverStone replaced it quickly with a brand new one. It works fine.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice color.
I would have given it ZERO eggs, but this review page would allow zero eggs.
Cons: As the other individual said.....it died within one min of turning it on. Additionally I noticed a few of the connectors had slightly mishaped male and female leads. This made it very hard to push on a connection to a device.
Other Thoughts: I now have to go through Silverstone for warranty because it is just over 30 days from Newegg. I will follow-up here if Silverstone gives me a hard time on this.READ FULL REVIEW
