Lots of AVR for the price
 
We had poor man's home theater by coming off the back of a Samsung BD player into two analog audio systems and out to 4 speakers. Brought the classy-looking A800 home and tossed away many RCA cables, all audio components and then did a simple HDMI-in for the sources, all within 15 minutes. Connected all 5 speaker cables and tuner antennas and powered up. OSD menu was a breeze... added our 5 speakers -- told it 'no Sub' so it uses our full-range fronts for LF, and next input the measurements to t...

Great receiver!!
 
So I've had my RX-A800 for a few months now, and I can say that I am fully satisfied with it! I've got it wired to my 5.1 system, main LR speakers are bi-amped, too. I've got it hooked up to my TV, PS3, cable-box DVR, Nintendo, and my computer on occasion. Handles everything like a champ.Everything sounds great, but more than that, I love how it handles the video, as well. Makes everything so simple to wire, especially with HDMI. I can't say that the video-upscaling ...

This receiver does everything!
 
I had a Denon 3800 reciever prior to replacing it with this yamaha. I bought a projector for my family room (still have plasma) so I wanted to upgrade to an av receiver that had two hdmi outputs for my tv and projector. I did moved from a $1200 130wt/ch Denon receiver to this $750 95wt/ch Yamaha. I can tell the power difference, Running 7 klipsch reference speakers, but not too bad. The receiver seems to do everything. Two hdmi outputs a. A must if you have a projector and tv, it's great t...

On screen volume ANNOYING
 
The receiver so far has been excellent except one thing: the volume appears on screen when you adjust it and you can't turn this "feature" off. Who thought it would be a good idea to put the volume information on screen in the first place? I can read the front of the receiver fine. and secondly, who decided that you couldn't turn this off??????? I called tech support because I couldn't find it in the manual and they advised me that they originally allowed you to turn this on and off but rece...

PASS ON THIS ONE
 
I was really excited to get this receiver ,it had everything I wanted includingan HD radio tuner. It setup very easily and sounded great on everything except over the air radio,it can't pick up a station 3 miles fromme ,I can get that station on a MP3 player FM tuner with no static. Yamaha customer service treated me like an idiot when I was having trouble doingthe Firmware update ,it turns out if you don't have a CD or DVD player that has anoptical out and NO...

Great Receiver without all the bells and whistles of more expensive receivers
 
I have got to love Yamaha products and this is the best Receiver I have ever had (I have owned a Yamaha HTR and a Samsung).I think the main reason you will find it at almost half the price on the web is because it lacks internet connectivity and air play; however, if you are not concerned about this extra features, this is the best Receiver you can find for the money. And if you are still concerned about internet connectivity and/or Airplay, you can just buy and Apple TV for about $1...

Great receiver for the price
 
I upgraded from a Yamaha receiver that was about 6 years old that was great, however did not have HDMI support. I was able to get rid of soooo much excess wiring and simplify all cabling, etc. The new Yamaha receiver was a very simple set up, and I LOVE it. :)

Fatal Flaw for otherwise good reciever
 
I purchased this to upgrade my Denon 890 receiver for one reason, to use the two HDMI 1.4a outputs. Setup is Direct TV HDDVR and PS3 feeding a Mitsubishi 3dTV (65738) and a projector. Everything worked except that Direct TVs 3d content failed to work on Channels 104 and 106. Black screen and no sound. I realized the firmware was out of date (1.XX) so I downloaded the 2.xx firmware in hopes that would help. Had to drag my old hd dvd player out to get it to work (ps3 failed on first burn, but...

Yamaha RX-A800 A/V Reciever
 
This product is a winner & exactly what I wanted. I replaced an Onkyo receiver which I had for 5 months out of it's 2 year warranty. Bummer. By comparison, the Yamaha was easy to set up, operate & has a great sound. I listen to am/fm radio, cd's, watch tv & blu-ray thru this unit. It has many sound options to cover my listening choices. Amazon's price made this a very good value & I would recommend this unit.

Very Happy
 
I bought this to replace a Yamaha receiver I bought in 1991 which cost me $1800 at the time. I run Kilpch horns (2,800 ea in 1991, now well over 4K) / infinity center and a Klipch powered 10" sub. Now Klipch, being such a great speaker, doesn't need a lot to drive great sound. However changing to this receiver turned my sound from "really good maybe great" to "great to exceptional".I finally get the "wall of sound" I have read about. Now that being said, if you send the sound to a s...
