Yamaha RX-V677 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Network AV Receiver
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Great Receiver 05/09/2015

This review is from: Yamaha RX-V677 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Network AV Receiver

Pros: Most of the bells/whistles you'd want in a receiver
Built-in bookmarks for internet radio stations
Built-in WiFi
2.1A front USB outlet
Video upscaling, including from analog sources

Cons: Only one audio out
No HDCP 2.2
No digital radio
No Dolby Atmos
Remote only controls receiver

Other Thoughts: The RX-V673 / RX-A720 were the last receivers to receive two audio out plugs. Since the RX-V677 only has one, this means you can only connect one analog recording device to this receiver. For example, you could connect a VCR, but could not also connect a tape deck. A splitter might work, but that's so ghetto.

Even on sale, it was tough to shell-out the $$$ for a receiver without HDCP 2.2. But, my 20+ year old Technics receiver died, so I needed a replacement quick.

For some stupid reason, the RX-V673 made you go to a 3rd party internet site to hold internet radio bookmarks. This RX-V677 has its own local internet radio bookmarks.

@ MSRP, other brand receivers include Dolby Atmos

I think only the RX-V6xx line from Yamaha includes video upscaling. The lower models don't.

RX-V673's remote controlled the receiver AND TV. The RX-V677's remote only controls the receiver.

Now, if there was some way to connect a Wii to this receiver...

Klipsch SW-450 Subwoofer Single
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Thundering Astroids! 05/09/2015

This review is from: Klipsch SW-450 Subwoofer Single

Pros: Great bass! Rocks the whole room and seats! Great construction / looks.

Cons: Blue LED bright in dark room
Shipped in its own box; no double boxing
Box arrived damaged (but SW is functional w/o visible damage)
Box had small piece of glass embedded
Auto on/off doesn't always work

Other Thoughts: When on sale, this is a great buy. Larger than what I thought it was going to be. Has left/right RCA patch sockets, but you really just need one cable for left on SW and receiver.

The shipping box was the actual box used to house the SW. It arrived damaged, with tears on one corner and a hole in one side. The SW is suspended inside about 1.5" away from the side of the box. The plastic wrapping bag showed signs of impact, but the SW itself showed no visible damage.

There was a small piece of glass embedded in on the outside of the box. Presumably, this was from the shipping company

Foxconn H97M Plus LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap, nice features like RAID, SATA Express.

Cons: XMP does not work, even with updated firmware. 1600MHz memory runs at "1400", if that's even possible.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. With all of them peeps jumping off buildings overthere, no wonder the qualify is sub-par. The MB works and has nice features, but not as advertised. (2 eggs instead of 1).
