Consumer review by: DJ Opus (



All my DJ equipment is Yamaha and that's all I ever used...I took a chance on their smaller stuff and was completely happy with every but the speaker's dinky, I ended up replacing it with larger gauge and sounds great

It's no longer on sale, I purchased mine for 299.99. 399.99 is a bit of a stretch but overall I'm happy with it ; Be aware, I did have a SONY blu-ray player that wasn't HDMI compatible...I updated the firmware on both the Yamaha Amp and my Blu-ray,...

Great sound for great price


Very happy with this purchase thus far

Great sounding set for the money

Must turn receiver on first before a flat panel routed through it, or else the lcd will turn off and on a few times

Good buy


The Yamaha receiver is easy to set up and provides 4 HDMI inputs with an HDMI output that goes to the TV. Much easier to route blue ray, cable, etc. through receiver to get stereo sound than prior VCRs with multiple audio/video cables. Good sound for...

Nice. Home Theatre


Recommend if you want to run your DVD, Bluray and other technology.

Very impressive system. The sound is really awesome. Hooked up to my desktop computer and tv, DTS sound, sound good thru optical wire ; Tons of inputs and outputs

The wires are so thin. I researched and its recommends at least 16 gauge wire. Wire are kind of thin and short but the sound is very good for my small apartment room

Great Value


Note: you may need to update the firmware to D023 to get 3D pass-through. I was not able to do this with my 3D blu-ray player -- I had to dig up an older DVD/CD player to get it to work (update via digital audio in). But once I did this, I have no...

Good sound, easy operation, 3D blu-ray compatible, lots of inputs. If you get this system on sale, it's hard to beat

You might want to get your own speaker wire for longer runs (as I did)

Great Sound!


I have been impressed with every single Yamaha musical instrument ive used, from Pianos and keyboard, to speakers and boat engines, they make good stuff.

Good clarity, nice heavy well constructed enclosures. Subwoofer is plenty for smaller sized home theatre. Bass sounds great, deep punchy bass. Highs are very clear. 4 HDMI inputs are nice, they all carry audio

No mid range control on front panel. Subwoofer feels like it should hit harder before it start distorting on me, but still is good sub

Amazing Home Theater Experience!


Got this on sale for $350.00 + a $50 newegg giftcard. Great deal!

Many, many inputs ; Great speakers ; Black glossy front (looks great on my glass desk) ; Sub woofer is extremely good

It would be nice if I could have two audio channels playing at the same time (music from PC + game console) ; Other than that, none

Great Value


I ended up using different speakers for the front L & R as I had some 4-ft tall ones. I am running the speaker wire around the room for the rear speakers, so I am using thicker gauge speaker wire.

Great sound per $$ and easy operation. Once you get it set up the way you want, there are large buttons on the front to recall the different configs (DVD/BR, HD TV Out, ...). Plays my Blu-Ray movies with perfect sync. The remote is reasonably easy to use

The speakers don't look like much, but sound good. Speaker wire is a little thin. Kind of what you expect at this price
