Bottom Line:   
Another great Yamaha receiver. I have this hooked up for kitchen to a pair of B&A S-45's and a pair of Radio shack speakers (the bookshelf models with the ? tweeter thing on top under a cloth grill. Sounds very good and has been in constant use for over 3 years now for this purpose. It was my first Craig's List receiver purchase ($40) and had a 1 year use by me as home theater receiver where it also performed flawlessly. Sturdily built and great clean sound. Put into kitchen because I replaced home theater with a Yamaha RX-V1, two Denon 3805's, and a Denon 3801 all hooked up to PC via distribution amplifier. My wife is insane because she lets me have receivers in every room in the house (and garage of course) and more vintage speakers than anyone could imagine. Sounds good to me though. If you find this receiver cheap buy it, it is still a wonderfully built and good sounding unit.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent build, crisp highs and controlled lows.
No heating issues like Technics I use a lot.
It is barely warm in a very tight shelf.

Remote is great, receiver output more than enough (somehow louder than specified).

Excellent and highly recommended. Had it for over a year on Technics fronts and Yamaha rears, enjoying more every day...

Bottom Line:   
For the money, I really think this is one of the better setups out there on the market. I have this reciever hooked to a set of Magnepan SMGa speakers with a 10" 200 watt sub. It really sounds good. Clean, airy and transparent. I have owned and have friends that own much more expensive systems and maybe will reach louder listening levels but they dont ever really seem to sound any better. I like music at a nominal level but not so lund that my ears distort. This is an extremely clean setup that at lower volume levels can conjure the image and soundstage of much more expensive systems. So, if your one who listens to music for the pleasure and not the punishment, then this could be the reciever for you. Love it.

Bottom Line:   
This is by far the best receiver out there for the money. You can't beat it without paying at least double. I have pounded my Yamaha surrounds with movies and music. Rock, Rap, Funk, Classical, Heavy Metal, Jazz, HEAVY METAL. This receiver has never let me down. Never had a problem with circuit protection tripping, nothing. Maybe I got lucky, but I think it's because it's a Yamaha. Sony's don't cut it, Denon rocks ($1000's more), Pioneer... Eh. My shelf system Aiwa sounds better than most Sony's and Pioneer's I've heard for half the money. Just my opinion, but stick with Yamaha unless you've got some money to burn. Then you'd be looking at HK's, Denon's etc. instead of reading these reviews.
