User Reviews

Was looking for a receiver that would drive a turntable and incorporate wireless speakers. The receiver does this with two disadvantages; (1) must use Yamaha wireless components, (2) must use the MusicCast app to adjust volume and turn on speakers.

    Wireless speakers

    Must use Yamaha only speakersMust use MusicCast app to (completely ) operate system

This amp is an excellent value. Connected to Polk LSi speakers, the sound has been very clean and full. While it lacks the exhaustive set of bells and whistles found in higher-end Aventage models (of which I own 2), it has more than enough to provide flexibility in a single-room setup.

  • +

    - Has Yamaha's typically solid sound & build quality- Solid mix of features, especially for the price- Great out-of-the box wireless & AirPlay implementation

  • -

    - few legacy connections, but that's also one thing that makes it smaller

Great sound, small size. Replaced an equivalently priced Denon...night and day improvement over in audio quality. Small footprint...I needed a shallow depth to fit in my rack. Would definitely purchase again in the Aventage line.

    Great sound, easy setup. Small size.

  • -

    Less features than some be receivers (trades quality for quantity.)

This is a great home theater receiver. It was easy to set up. The smartphone apps- Yamaha AV controller and Music Cast have excellent user interfaces. I can do so many things with this receiver - stream iTunes music via AirPlay from my computer, stream music from my android smart phone, play radio...

    Easy set up, good smartphone app

A definite step above my last couple of Yamaha amps. My last amp. RX-v479 got fried when the power came on after an outage (should have used a surge strip...). So i decided to try the AVENTAGE line due to the reviews and the difference is remarkable!

Simply amazing!!

What a great component! I've wanted to upgrade to Aventage for years and this exceeds my expectations.

Keep in mind that I previously owned a Sony DA3400 ES, a top-of-the-line Sony model. I was pleased to find this model with almost the exact same features that are important to me, such as a phono jack, the ability to send sound to a second room and other features, but updated to include new...

  • +

    The ability to assign a different video input to an audio source is great feature!

  • -

    Bass performance, as stated above.
