Good sound. Low Profile.

Pros: Sits low on the desk if you have monitors that need to swing above it.

Cons: None. It's good for what it is.

Overall Review: No built-in bluetooth or networking features.

stay away

Pros: Works great and sounds amazing for what it is. Just so long you never change to a different input....

Cons: The amount of bugs it has, I wish I just got a full receiver. If you change volume the screen and sound go away for about 30sec, change input and have to wait up to 15min sometime for it to be detected or some times never, you have to turn it off and back on and still no guarantee that it will even detect anything.

neo- not morpheus

Pros: Still works stedy, good quality too.

Cons: It's media controler, no media without video, right? Needs a tv to see, what you are controling. Remote ctrl is mediocre, takes many push buttons to achieve some simple things.

Overall Review: OBD is a must, yamaha understood and pulled it. But this thing is rock solid to me. New Egg got me a deal I never regret.

Yamah neohd ymc-500

Comments: To all the people who have an xbox 360 and having issues with it dropping when trying to adjust the volume. Go into your console settings and turn off display discovery on the xbox. You may have to manulay set up your xbox but this solved the problem for me.

works fine with Harmony 650

Comments: It is not necessary to go through the interface every time you turn on the unit. Simply go to SETUP/OPTION/INITIAL SCREEN and you have your choice. You can have it turn on displaying the interface, or the last input you were using, or a designated input. I have designated my TV input, as I use that most frequently. Whenever I turn on the system, the Yamaha displays the TV signal and not the interface.

Contrary to what many reviewers have written, this will play very nicely with a Logitech Harmony 650 remote.
No, it's not as seamless as a traditional receiver without an interface. However, the Harmony 650 allows you to program the BACK, LEFT, RIGHT and ENTER buttons from the Yamaha remote onto the assignable LCD buttons. If I want to change from TV to DVD, for example, I simply use the BACK button to call up the Yamaha interface, the LEFT or RIGHT buttons to navigate, and the ENTER button to select the DVD input. Or, just select DEVICE and the Harmony replicates the Yamaha remote.
