5 Star Winner
 
Since the time of my review, there are only two reviews, a 5 star and a 2 star, the 2 star being based on a supposed bad remote and manual. I thought I had to set things straight. I've owned many other brand receivers and both Yamahas I've owned are great. The sound quality is excellent and the only problem I might see with someone not liking the manual is that Yamaha has so many features and options it might scare away the type of person that likes to use it out of the box without barely any...

Receiver is good Remote stinks
 
The quality of the HTR-6140 is great. Features good. Operation of the remote is awkward, not intuitive. The only thing worse than the opeartion of the remote is the manual. It is absolutely awful.

A Pleasant Surprise
 
I have been shopping for receivers for several weeks, and based on reviews was torn between Yamaha and Onkyo. My price point was sub 300. Well circumstances arose that I had this receiver and a Yamaha 5.1 speaker setup given to me. This is my first serious HT component, but I am tech savvy, and I found this manual difficult to follow, am actually still sifting through it all. My first comment is how pleased I am that this unit passes audio via HDMI, at this price level only the Sony 820 does tha...

Yamaha HTR-6140
 
Pro : excellent quality soundCon : poor integration with other equipment - won't work with the HD Cable Box and and the Cable Remote will not work with the reciever.I purchased the 6140 a few days ago and it is going back today. In addition to the poor integration, the setup procedure is not clear and the manual is confusing. The most serious issue is the HDMI Video switching. This is the primary reason for my purchase and the 6140 fails miserably. Video switching from HD to SD is very slow ...

This is a great product! Pls. see my review of RX-V463...
 
Yamaha HTR-6140 5.1 receiver is exactly the same as Yamaha RX-V463 5.1 receiver. There is absolutely no difference. I have owned both of them and are awesome. Not sure why Yamaha would do someting like releasing the same product under 2 different model names unless it's something to do with marketing the product to cover most customers like Chrysler, Dodge and Voyager did once with their minivans. Please see my review for RX-V463 and it's word by word applicable to HTR-6140. I have t...

works great!
 
I read the other reviews before purchasing. The only negative was a complicated setup and manual. They were right! But after the setup it works great! I also saved a lot of money by buying a demo model and their shipping and delivery time was great too. I have an older HDTV so the HDMI was useless, but I figured out a way with my existing optic cables by changing the input names to allow the video to go through the optic outputs.

Great Deal
 
This was a great deal. This one is less expensive than other AV receivers but you really get a great bang for your buck here. It produces crisp clear sounds. Remote is a little confusing but once you figure it out it is great. I love the on screen programing. I used HDMI cables for all the inputs and could not figure out the onscreen display until I plugged in a coax to my TV just for onscreen display. I also was concerned about not being able to control my directv remote. However, I foun...

Excellent Value for the price
 
Yamaha HTR-6140BL 525 Watt 5.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver I purchased this receiver, and it is an excellent value for the price. It's 105 watts per channel, along with clarity, and music and sound definition makes it gret for music, and home theater. I set it up with infinity setellites, and a JBL sub. Wow! What a combination for sound. I am very pleased with it. In addition, the ipod connection with the yamaha ys10 turns my ipod into complete music system. I am really pleased with it.

Leave it to the engineers ...
 
... to fall far short of where this unit could be. There just seems to be a lack of real world user input that would have made a big difference. Some of this was not described clearly in the sales information.1. when playing back a high resolution bitstream from pc to receiver via coax cable all audio effects are disabled. This is buried in the manual.2. The hdmi signals do not get passed thru to the tv when the receiver is turned off. Most receivers are turned off a lot and only get turned on f...

One of the best receivers out there.
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Yamaha HTR-6140BL 525 Watt 5.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver (Electronics) Receive sound through hdmi (LPCM). SO you don't need really expensive ones; buy this receiver (200-240) and then buy panasonic bd 35k and you are good to go.
