Not a bad little system
 
I got this system on sale somewhere else. I couldnt find a bunch of reviews about it so I decided to share with everyone my experience. The price I got it for was too good to be true so I decided to take a chance. Its a nice little system. When I say little, the receiver is very small in comparison to other receivers, almost half the size of the receiver I previously had. My primary concern was size as I needed it to fit in a certain space in my cabinet so this worked out nicely.I have it ...

Great interface
 
Takes some time to set up, but it's not difficult if you follow the instructions. Gives you a nice, simple, easy-to-use interface on your TV screen that you use to control your TV, DVD player, Playstation, etc.

Nice, but some room for improvement too....
 
I am quite pleased with this unit. My stereo used to be a cambridge soundworks desktop theater. At some point I had updated the speakers to the C.S. cubes one size up and I added a good size powered subwoofer. I was always happy with that setup, I like things small and the sound was more than ok and when switching the powered subwoofer on, it is/was capable of surprising volume. Now, after more than 10 years, I had to replace the amplifier unit because the volume knob started having issues. I sa...

Excellent Idea but Poor Execution
 
I am disappointed at this Yamaha product. The only reason I kept this product because it was too late for me to return. I bought this receiver a year ago and finally got around to open the box. Besides the Sound quality and the smaller size nothing good about the system. Everytime you need to change your component you need to turn your TV on to do so. Yamaha, what you have been thinking?I want a receiver thats versatile. I dont need to turn TV on for every single operation. I need a system that'...

no headphone output & control cumbersome
 
I was attracted by the Yamaha name/rep and the YMC-500's compact size, looking for a "quality" receiver and multimedia audio amp. Unfortunately, the lack of a headphone output came as a shock. The unit also lacks line-level output jacks and has only a single (two channel) analog audio input. Both unit setup and even simple/routine switching among inputs requires cumbersome navigation of the on-screen display. And the HDMI three input switch performs unacceptably for multimedia con...

Too much whiz and not enough bang!
 
I purchased this product for home use based on Yamaha's adds. I connected the unit to a a blu ray dvd player as well as a satellite dvr connected receiver. I have a lot of concerns with the remote control. Buyers beware: the unit will only control other source devices if the IR flashers which are supplied with he unit are continuously connected (with wires)to the sensors of each of the devices (TV, DVD, DVR etc). Do not buy this system if you are looking for something sleek or if you are looking...

Big surprise in a small package
 
During past few decades I have had many Yamaha products and most of them were receivers/amplifiers. When this "thing" came out, especially after I read some great reviews in trusted audiophile websites I was curious and excited to put my hands on one. OK I did it and get one myself! Unit is suited for small rooms. Well, well, lots of surprises and all good ones - sound quality, video processing, versatility - all in Yamaha level! Easy, intuition based remote control - "wanna watc...

Great sound, but UI is lacking
 
Sound is quite good, and setup is fairly easy. I'm using it with speakers from Orb Audio and getting excellent sound. If you're planning to use this with a universal remote control, take a look at the YMC-500 remote control image. There are no dedicated buttons to switch source, just a directional pad. So every time you want to change input from Xbox to Apple TV, you'll be walking back up the menu tree to the Activities list (Watch, Listen, or Play) and selecting first an activity, then a d...

Excellent HT system
 
The YMC-500 is used as my main entertainment receiver at home.It controls my Samsung 42" Plasma, ASUS A33 HTPC and my Xbox 360 via the included IR blasters. Its remote allows me to control the day to day features of each device nicely. It powers my Yamaha NS-AP2600BL 5.0 speakers while YST-FSW100 handles the bass. I am very satisfied with the audio quality and output volume. I have absolutely no CONs with this product and highly recommend it for users who have a small to medium sized room w...
