Amazing Sound
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver (Electronics) The first receiver i ever purchased was a Sony 5.1 500 watt surround system, that was when i was only 13 years old and didnt fully understand the little differences. Well im now 17 years old and im getting sick of the surround sound because for the most part i only use the stereo setting. So i had some extra money and thought i would pick of a new receiver. But what to get i looked at m...

nice-old school component
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver (Electronics) A sweet receiver with a big volume knob, a phono pre-amp, and no provision for "video" inputs. This is for record players and other stereo RCA-jack-equipped audio components. Nothing that would surprise a guy who bought his last stereo in the 1980s--I should know. Sound is fantastic. It has a couple of knobs and buttons I haven't had before, but I understand what they do and they are tr...

This review is from: Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver (Electronics) I was in need of a simple 2 channel stereo receiver to replace a 20 plus year old Kenwood unit that was having some right channel issues. After a thorough internet search of various units and manufactures, I settled on this unit. I also own a Yamaha surround sound receiver for my primary noise maker and was very happy with the performance.The main thing I wanted was a loudne...

Reviewing the Yamaha RX-397 Receiver
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver (Electronics) I'm very satisfied with the performance of this receiver. I was looking for a receiver with medium power and one which did not have all the extras such as surround sound, etc. The Yamaha RX-397 design is simple but yet provides everything I need. I especially like the continuous adjustable loudness control which allows for low power settings without sacrificing bass or treble.<...

Great for old school or new school!
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver (Electronics) I have been very pleased with the overall quality and functionality of this receiver. Yes, I am old school and I still need a phono input with a preamp section in the receiver, but I also am new school with digital input from a CD player, and a Linksys wireless music bridge that allows you to stream output (mp3, wav, etc) from your computer to your receiver. The RX-397 handles both ol...

Basic Excellence
 
I am not interested in home theater. All I wanted was a basic stereo receiver. I bought this one to replace a very similar Yamaha that was 20+ years old. Also, I wanted a dedicated turntable hook-up, with the grounding wire connection post, which this unit has. I have been recording vinyl to CD, and the results have been great. I really like this receiver. The sound is great, the functions are simple, and the build quality is what you would expect from Yamaha. All I wanted was quality wi...

Outstanding performance
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver (Electronics) I purchased this receiver to replace an Onkyo that died. It is worth every penny paid; in fact I'm not sure what you could improve on w/more expensive receivers. The radio has incredible sensitivity compared to my Onkyo. I live 40+ miles from any major city and get great reception now with the provided wire/loop antennas. I listen mostly to pipe organ, choral and classical music. Lis...

superb unit, reasonable price and lightning-fast service
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver (Electronics) If you are in the market for a classic two-channel stereo receiver (and on a budget) the Yamaha RX-397 would be the one to get. The sound from this unit is crystal-clear and distortion-free, even when played at a high volume through my cheap old speakers.As for the service, I placed the order on a Sunday night and the item was delivered the following Tuesday. A p...

A nice simple receiver with super performance!
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver (Electronics) This is my first review.A couple of weeks ago, I purchased the Yamaha RX-397 receiver to replace one of my old receivers from the 1980's. (Back then, stereos actually had knobs that you could get a hold of). Most stereo equipment sold these days has a lot of "fluff" without much "substance". Everything seems to have unwanted channels, frilly complicated displays,...

Excellent stereo receiver, highly recommended
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver (Electronics) Despite the current fad for multi-channel audio/video receivers, the majority of people still listen to music with two speakers and only need a two-channel stereo receiver to drive them. As fanatic audiophiles with excellent stereo speakers, my wife and I recently purchased this receiver because of very good previous experience with Yamaha electronics products. This is a superb receiver...
