Better than expected.

 

I bought the RXA-660 to replace a Sony STR-DA5200ES now that I wanted to move towards HDMI audio, 4k etc. I was dubious as I'd had one attempt at replacing that amp with a cheaper Sony model a couple of years ago and wasn't pleased with the result...

Big step up from RXV 377

 

Big step up in sound from RXV 377. Hearing things in soundtracks I hadn't heard before. Seems to have given my bluejays a new lease of life. Excellent advice and service from Freddy

Recommended purchase

 

Power saving is great, it senses when tv is in standby and mirrors this. We get sound through the amp when using tv aps which our old solution used the tv speakers. Connectivity seems less than some amps however I don't have anything else to plug in...

Good all rounder

 

Had to replacey onkyo tx-r607 which packed up. Didn't realise how good was the onkyo until I started looking. Yamaha had less connectivity and generally did the same job. Sound a step up but that's all.

Consumer review by: Ricky53 (richersounds.com)

Great connectivity and high quality sound

 

This is my first Yamaha purchase. It replaces an Arcam Solo Movie. I must say the musical quality of the Yamaha closely matches the Arcam which surprised me given it was under half the price. Features are excellent and are far superior to the Arcam. My...
