After a long term test, can this Yamaha offer Home Cinema perfection?

Excellent and refined audio quality for 2 channel and surround playback ; Good Build Quality ; Above average video processing and switching ; Good quality amplification ; Handles all HD codecs ; Good connectivity ; Excellent Value for Money

Limited menu system ; No networking or DNLA connectivity ; YPAO auto set up and room EQ not as accurate as competing systems

Yamaha RX-V1900 Seven Channel Home Theater Receiver Reviewed

 

Andrew Robinson found the sound of the RX-V1900 "more involving and dynamic, especially with uncompressed audio codecs." He also said the surround sound "rivals separates" and added that the "overall soundstage and spatial separation is to die for,...

Yamaha's signature sound has always been a bit livelier and in your face, compared to say Onkyo, Denon or Marantz, which is the case with the RX-V1900. While it can be tamed with DSP or manual EQ adjustments, I personally like it and find it more...

Yamaha still can't streamline their set-up procedures and onscreen menus and the RX-V1900's system is no different ; The remote is okay but a bit cheap and mismanaged. I would recommend a third-party universal for long-term use with the RX-V1900. The...

The $2,000 club of receivers is as hot as ever, with seemingly every manufacturer offering an option or two. Some are good, others are great, but none can touch the Yamaha RX-V1900, for it plays in the category but costs much less. This is probably why...

Best of the mid-priced Receivers

 

I'm very pleased with the Yamaha RX-1900 receiver. I've put it thru many tests and tried all kinds of equipment with it. I have had no problems at all. I can highly recommend this receiver to anyone.

This receiver really does everything right. Setup is easy but very detailed ; Pro on screen volume. Even with composite hook ups. A lot of receivers I looked at didn't have this ; The FM radio with HD Radio is really good. I can pickup almost every...

The setup menu could have been made nicer looking. Has the old black back ground look. Although it very complete and fairly easy to use ; The remote could have been made better. It does pretty much everything I need it to do. But it seems dated ;...
