No Sound via HDMI. Bluetooth Sync Issues


I bought this last week, display model, and spent an entire weekend trying to get some sound out of it. After some telephone support from the very helpful guys at Richersounds and Yamaha, I eventually got sound via bluetooth, but audio and video were 3...

One happy (old school) customer


Multiple connections, excellent sound, killer app, useful features, easy setup and use. Rated as mid price - it may be for some - for me it was a considerable purchase but worth every penny. Shop offers a really good deal on extended warranty.

multiple connectivity , sound quality , smartphone app is a killer

Excellent AVR


An excellent AVR. Easy to set up, loads of connectivity, and produces a rich "warm" sound from any of the connected audio sources, via my Monitor Audio 6's. I previously had a Denon X 3300 AVR but the Yamaha supercedes the audio quality in my opinion....

connectivity ease of setup sound quality.
