Many ways to configure


Once I got the Yamaha YHT-497BL I took it out of the box and heard a rattle in the center speaker. It works okay but don't know the long term. I am one of the very few that do not subscribe to cable or satellite so using my tv tuner is a disadvantage...

Yamaha YHT-497 Home Theater Package


The performance & sound is excellent. There could be better instructions for hooking to cable/satellite & HDTV.
