YAMAHA RX-V473BL 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver

2 out of 5 eggs Good receiver but HDMI issues 11/26/2013

This review is from: YAMAHA RX-V473BL 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver

Pros: Using HDMI to drive my home system Blue-ray, Cable, PS3.
Easy setup, Airplay works well with the network attachment, Nice sound quality. Drives my Polk home 5.1 system w/ no complaints. Good warranty coverage. Good phone support.

Cons: Major HDMI board issues. Unit worked intermittently after first month and then went out all together. Had to send to Yamaha repair shop to replace HDMI board and was told this is common on these units from Yamaha. Very concerned this will happen again soon and be w/o warranty coverage.

Other Thoughts: In general I like Yamaha and if it was not for the HDMI issue I would have no issue with this receiver. However the HDMI is the heart of the unit for my purposes (and most others I assume) so I cannot in good conscience give more than 2 eggs given the failure I had. Warranty service was easy but very disappointed overall.
