Comments about Yamaha Black 2 Channel Network Hi-Fi Receiver:
I had an older Yamaha receiver and replaced it with this one. I wanted to be able to use Bluetooth and wi-fi to play music. I also wanted built-in internet radio. I could have done all this by adding various components and adapters onto my old Yamaha receiver. But I wanted to modernize and simplify things somewhat.This receiver took me numerous hours to set-up. Part of the set-up process was the usual connecting of cables to various input devices (Blu Ray player, TV set, DVR, HD Tuner, etc.). And when that was done, I had to connect the unit to my wi-fi system and program-in my digital radio stations. Nothing was particularly difficult. It just took a little more time than expected. But anyone not familiar with computer wi-fi systems should perhaps hire a professional to do all or part of the setup.I have not had any problems with the receiver not finding the wi-fi signal. It always connects promptly after startup.For those who do not need surround sound, and who are happy with 2 channel stereo sound while watching TV or movies, this receiver is a good choice. It has no surround sound capibilities. The back panel contains numerous RCA connectors, plus connectors for 2 optical and 2 coaxial digital devices. My TV, Blu-Ray player and DVR play through the receiver just fine.Pandora music is built-in and works perfectly.The built-in vTuner app provides a reasonably good selection of local, national and international online radio stations.I successfully paired the receiver with my i-phone and also hooked it up to my computer using the Serviio media server program. Both worked fine, although I probably will not use these features that often.The Yamaha Musicast app works OK on my Apple i phone. It controls the receiver's basic functions. I did not purchase any Musicast speakers with my receiver and so I cannot comment on the operation of the Muscast speakers (sold seperately).The amplifier power seems adequate for my mid-sized floor standing speakers.
Service and delivery comments:
ABT's service was good. They delivered the receiver to the door of my condo complex, located about 70 miles north of the ABT store. ABT's price was substantially lower than some other retailers, including online only ones.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
