Comments about Yamaha AVENTAGE Series 7.2 Channel Black Network AV Home Theater Receiver:
I use many functions, multi-zone, internet radio, Ipad connection via Airplay/Apple tv, and of course BluRay dvds. Another big buy-factor for me, the HD fm receiver. We live near target-rich Boston, and pull a big number of HD fm stations. Make sure to upgrade the software upon purchase, it really helps increase the station-count . Being able to sit in one room and control this reciever in another is awesome; the Yamaha App is not to be ignored.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Yamaha Owner for Over 25 Years
from Long Island, New York
Purchased to replace my vintage Yamaha setup. Still use my old M85 power amp (25 years old) to drive my main polk RTI12 speakers. Power from RXa1000 works fine for the rest of my 7.1 setup. Sound is great,on screen a little tricky for the first few times. Would buy again.

About Me Casual User
I upgraded to this unit after my RX-V863 got fried by a power surge during a thunderstorm. I still have a record turntable and this new unit has the phono inputs I was looking for. I am really pleased by the performance of this unit. I have my TV, Blu-Ray player, Cable TV Box, DVD Recorder and XBOX 360 connected to it via HDMI and I still have extra HDMI ports available for future expansion. My TV is not 3D ready, but my Blu-Ray Player is and so is the RX-A1000, so when I am ready to upgrade my TV to 3D, all my equipment will be ready.

Play old records and internet music

Set up was kind of easy but not too easy. IPhone application does not have all controls functionality but is ok. Easy to connect and calibrate. Sounds NICE. Buy one.

Replaced a Yamaha RXV1900; sounds just as good. This is an excellent receiver. I have not connected it to my network or a 3D monitor so haven't tested those capabilities.
Good value for money

I got this when my RX-V1900 failed to handshake HDCP content. It was a massive upgrade from my old one. All the possible decoding and features of this make my house sound better than the theaters. I like the android app, although it's kind of a novelty unless you are using the multi-zone features and are out of line of site of the receiver. It was slightly taller than my old unit and wouldn't fit on the same shelf in my tv stand, so I had to completely undo all the wiring and rerun all the components, which needed to be done anyway. It is fairly heavy, but that's not really a con because you aren't moving it after you set it up. The media server is nice, but more of an afterthought. It doesn't have the capabilities to playback most of the now more common compression formats and the interface is kinda clunky. I just use my PS3 to access my media server. I don't see the industry creating too many new audio codecs for inputs. With the 7 HDMI inputs and countless other methods of hooking things to this, it is going to be very futureproof. Especially with the networking features. Hopefully if there is a new codec out, and only needs the new software, Yamaha can just push out an update that adds this new feature. You are going to have this unit for a good long while and well worth the investment. A Receiver is the heart of your home theater and should not be skimped on.
