WHY OH WHY would yamaha designers place the ONLY USB port on the front of the device behind the sleek black aluminum door??? WHY WHY WHY put a door on the fron if when the USB is in use... ( 99 percent of the time for ipod users) the door MUST BE OPEN with a white dangling cord hanging from the front of the receiver?.. really.. why would you put a door .. better yet why put the only USB port behind that door on the front??.. Here is a tip.. there is a whole back of the unit that a USB port can be placed where your Ipod cable doesn't have to show and one can shut the door on the front!.
The unit requires a direct ethernet connection as far as I understand. the directions .. ( not included as a manual) do not indicate that I can use wireless connections . .. another minus.
way overpriced... for the outcome.

Pros

  • Easy To Set Up
  • Good Power Output
  • Great Sound Quality

Cons

  • Confusing / Bad Remote Control
  • Not Enough Analog Outputs
  • Not Enough Digital Output

Best Uses

  • Home Theater
  • Larger Rooms

There's a few things i found that needs improvement. there needs to be more analog audio outputs and digital outputs.(at least three analog and two digital)also should have switched power outlets like the older models.(at least two).there's plenty of room on the back of the receiver for these.for a flagship receiver not to have these is unexceptable.because of these issues i have to go for four stars instead of the five i gave in my other review.still a good receiver for the money,just needs some improvement to be a top notch receiver.

great receiver for it's class

Pros

  • Accurate Controls
  • Easy To Set Up
  • Good Power Output
  • Great Sound Quality

Cons

Best Uses

  • Home Theater

I use it for home theater,running def tech speakers (bp7001sc fronts,clr3000 center,bpvx/p rears,bpx back surround,bp2x front effects) this receiver sounds amazing. i've owned alot o yamaha top end receivers since my first in 1996 and have found them very reliabe,rx-v890,3000,3300,2500, rx-a2010,3020, never had any issues. in my experience i have found that if you stick to the top two models you will get decent power.seems like $1000 retail is there magic number for power,the ones below don't have enough for full sound,the bass and mids get weak.like the fact you can get internet radio and pandora,endless stations to listen to. there is room for inprovement, design a remote like the older models with labels for input instead of using audio,video 123 ect.very hard for guest to find the right inputs. put an usb input on the back of receiver so you don't have to have the front door open and have the cord showing for ipod.also for being a flagship model it should have better speaker posts and gold plated inputs,just to make it look like a flagship receiver.this is not a true high end receiver like the rx-z9 and 11. more of a high end of the mid level.but for the price it's the best compared to the other offerings out there.

No Compalints - Great Sound

Cons

Best Uses

Great system and I have purchased several top of the line Yamaha receivers (products); but, I found this a bit difficult to set-up because I am not as tech aware as I was when younger (early 60's. I would have appreciated receiving a hard copy of the owners manual for reference during the set up process.

Functions, sound, etc. are exceptional.

    Pros

    • Accurate Controls
    • Good Power Output
    • Good Remote Control

    • It's Heavey To Carry
    • Poor Reception / Weak Antenna

    • Basic Systems

    I use this receiver in my living room for my home theater as well as my music system. The Internet capabilities allow me to listen to my favorite radio stations from back home and watch movies and listen to music in my computer. It's loaded with features I have yet to try. I have my Klipsch speaker system connected to it and the sound quality runs circles around that of my previous Pioneer Elite receiver. This for me is the ultimate upgrade. I'll probably never need to upgrade again.

      Very good AV receiver for its class

      By TI Magic

      from Fairfield, CA

      About Me Audiophile, Tech Savvy

      Pros

      • Accurate Controls
      • Easy To Set Up

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Home Theater

        I purchased this AV receiver to replace my 13-yr old former flagship Yamaha RX-V1 receiver after the center channel amplifier went out on me. In short, this is a very good receiver in terms of raw sound quality, but nowhere near the raw sound quality the former Yamaha flagship receivers. I also own the Yamaha RX-Z11 for my primary home theater system, which was basically an updated version of the RX-V1 using the same primary amp/preamp section (I ran the RX-V1 with a pair of Def Tech 7002 mains, CLR 2500 center, and a pair of BP-2X surrounds). I considered replacing it with Emotiva separates, but I did not want to deal with all the interconnect cables between the amp and preamp to do the same function of an AV receiver. I also considered purchasing a used RX-Z11, but I did not feel comfortable about not having any warranty coverage, so I finally decided on the Yamaha RX-A3020. It appears that Yamaha no longer manufactures the same flagship line of AV receivers that the RX-V1 and RX-Z11 were. Since I figured that this AV receiver was going to be used as part of a secondary home theater system, I was hoping that I would not miss the same smooth and clean "flagship" sound. To an extent, the differences were not greatly significant. After connecting and fine tuning the RX-A3020, I quickly discovered that the only way that this receiver could even come close to the former flagship model's raw sound quality was to set to "Pure Direct" mode bypassing the processing and equalization controls to obtain clearer and cleaner sound, especially at lower volume levels. The only drawback to this setting is that the number of channels used will be limited to the sound source's number of channels (i.e. the front presence channels that I have set up in the room will no longer be utilized). I am not saying that the RX-A3020 is a bad receiver. I am saying that it is a very good receiver for its class. When I spoke to the Yamaha Tech Reps before purchase, they never gave me a clear answer about whether or not this new "flagship" receiver was in the same class in terms of raw sound quality as the former RX-V1 and RX-Z11. Instead, they only emphasized that this was currently their best AV receiver. All in all, this receiver is not a true equivalent of the older Yamaha flagships mentioned earlier. This receiver falls more into the upper mid-grade class than the high-end audiophile class of AV receivers.

        The RX-A3020 is the Ultimate Receiver

        By Chris A/V Enthusiast

        from Long Island, NY

        About Me Audiophile, Movie Enthusiast, Tech Savvy

        Pros

        • Accurate Controls
        • Accurate sound
        • Easy To Set Up
        • Excellent build quality
        • Good Power Output
        • Great Sound Quality

        Cons

        • Runs Hot

        Best Uses

        • Home Theater
        • Larger Rooms
        • Multiple Rooms / Whole House

        I owned another YAMAHA Flagship Home Theater Receiver, the RX-Z1 which I purchased New about 10 years ago. I was a victim of Superstorm Sandy and my RX-Z1 was submerged under Saltwater. I had the receiver for over 10 years and never had a problem with it and as old as it was, it still sounded as great as the first day I set it up.

        Because I owned YAMAHA's Flagship Home Theater Receiver in the passed, I told my wife I would never purchase another brand and nothing less then YAMAHA's best.

        To comparing the two receivers (the RX-Z1 and the new RX-A3020) -
        The sound is comparable due to the Bur-Brown Processors
        The power output is comparable because it is only around 15 more watts Per Channel
        The build quality is similar as both are Flagship Receivers
        The control over sound manipulation IE Frequency Control, and Subwoofer Crossover is much improved over the older receiver.

        Where this receiver really shines is the Video Processing and Upconverting video to the new 4k Displays. Note: I am using ISF HDMI cables and WOW, the video processing through the RX-A3020 is amazing. With the filtering and all, the video is crystal clear. Also, the sound with the new sound through HDMI (uncompressed audio) makes a huge difference over the older receiver.

        I would Definitely recommend the RX-A3020 to anyone I know. It is a well built receiver with beautiful sound and amazing video processing for a crystal clear picture. If you want the best of the best, do not look any further than the YAMAHA RX-A3020 AVENTAGE Home Theater Receiver. You will definitely NOT be disappointed.

        Just one thing, this receiver runs very hot. I highly recommend not placing any other A/V Equipment underneath or on top of this receiver. If you give it plenty of breathing room, you can have a great party using the 9 Channel Party Mode or watch a Sci-Fi Movie with shocking sound.

        I hope this review helps someone make a great choice to purchase this amazing receiver.

( 99 percent of the time for ipod users) the door MUST BE OPEN with a white dangling cord hanging from the front of the receiver?.. really.. why would you put a door .. better yet why put the only USB port behind that door on the front??.. Here is a tip.. there is a whole back of the unit that a USB port can be placed where your Ipod cable doesn't have to show and one can shut the door on the front!.
        The unit requires a direct ethernet connection as far as I understand. the directions .. ( not included as a manual) do not indicate that I can use wireless connections . .. another minus.
        way overpriced... for the outcome.
