Yamaha RX-V679 review

 

The V679 sounds big and balanced, but how does it perform against the best AV amps at the money?

Big, spacious sound ; Balanced and engaging ; Decent detail ; Clear dialogue

No Dolby Atmos ; Still needs a touch more delicacy ; More expensive than better rivals

The Yamaha is an improvement on previous models, but it still doesn’t outperform cheaper rivals

Great Reciever!!

 

Awesome receiver! I love using Pandora on this unit but it is kind of a hassle to get to it. There should be a faster way to get to these apps.

Awesone sound

 

I had a Yamaha receiver prior to this one. I thought I would like a little more power. WOW, what a difference. It has lots of punch and clean sound. I also like the software interface,

Oops Tuner....

 

We bought a new tuner thinking that it was the reason that my 101 CD changer wasn't working right.....the speakers on the left side won't put out. Well, come to find out, it wasn't the tuner, it's the actual changer that's the problem. I am super glad...
