    Comments about Yamaha 1260W 9.2 Channel Audio/Video Receiver:

    This receiver replaces a recently purchased Yamaha RX-V675 which I was absolutely thrilled with (see my review). That had replaced a 20 year old Yamaha receiver that was still working flawlessly, but had no HDMI connectors. Then I purchased a new 4K UHDTV with a One Connect Box to prevent technology from overtaking it, so I decided to take the plunge and further upgrade my Yamaha receiver to one with 4K compatibility. As much as I appreciated the quality of the RX-V675, this new Aventage adds a new dimension (as well as obviously price). Since I had recent experience with the setup of the RX-V675, this one presented a bit less of a challenge, although newer challenges were presented with the TV's One Connect Box. After an unanswered call to Samsung Technical Assistance, I called Yamaha and got a quick response. This helped with the interface questions. The learning process continues daily, but I can only say that I am absolutely thrilled with the new Aventage Receiver. Yamaha has taken what I considered to be the best and made it better. I have found myself spending hours listening to my old CD's and enjoying them more than ever. Even older movies such as Top Gun or Goldfinger or Beverly Hills Cop or 2001: A Space Odyssey seem to have new dimensions added to their soundtracks. Thank you!

    Comments about Yamaha 1260W 9.2 Channel Audio/Video Receiver:

    This replaced my Onkyo TX-NR906. This is my first Yamaha. I was disapointed that no written manual came with the unit! It appears you can't purchase one either. The Quick guide is useless. I still haven't gotten the remote to program. Will take back to dealer and see if remote is programable. The Yamaha controller App is great.

      Comments about Yamaha 1260W 9.2 Channel Audio/Video Receiver:

      This unit replaces a Yamaha RX-V765, which had two audio zones. This one adds network capability and Airplay and more zones. I have my home wired so the set-up for that was already in place. We love Pandora and it accesses that service directly. It took some time to set this receiver up, because it is so flexible and has so much capability. I love the app to control it, and its works flawlessly on my wifi. That part was easy to set up. I use my Android phone and my wife uses her i-phone, so we can control all zones in other rooms with ease.

      Big, sturdy unit, great sound, great flexibility and options. Super nice with Android / iPhone app to control functions. Looks and sounds awesome! Yamaha is top of the line in my experience over the years.
      It is a great value for the cost.

      Comments about Yamaha 1260W 9.2 Channel Audio/Video Receiver:

      Overall, a great product with great sound.The set up was more difficult than it should have been. You need to juggle back qnd forth from your laptop top to do more than a basic setup. Also the remote is too complicated . The good news is the Android download app works well for controlling this receiver.

      This was an upgrade to an older Yamaha receiver and the sound output is amazing

        This 2030 replaces a 2010 I once had. The sound from the 2030 is leaps and bounds above the 2010. Have zero doubt - the 2010 was a great unit! The 2030 smokes it. I could not be more pleased with the sound quality, build quality, and appearance of this unit! If this is within your price range, stop looking - get this!

          Comments about Yamaha 1260W 9.2 Channel Audio/Video Receiver:

          This was a upgrade to another great Yamaha receiver I've owned, the RX-V1700. I needed a receiver that had clean power, lots of HDMI connection and great build quality. I looked into other receivers in this class and originally settled on its predecessor the RX-A2020 but found the A2030 instead. After unpacking it and connecting all speakers, Apple TV, PS3 and TV, I completed the set-up using the on-screen menu. The UI needs a little work and not the easiest to navigate but once completed, the sound is absolutely blissful. I tested a few different movies - the pod race from The Phantom Menace, Transformers, The Matrix and the A2030 performed flawlessly. The native iOS app allows you to control the receiver from either your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. AirPlay to the A2030 works as expected and the pass thru for 4K is plus. No problems with processing 3D movies either.

          If you're in the market for a receiver, give this a go if not it's big brother the A3030. You won't be disappointed.

            Comments about Yamaha 1260W 9.2 Channel Audio/Video Receiver:

            I had been using another brand full featured receiver for the last two years, but it started to act up, so I took the plunge and purchased this Yamaha Receiver. First it has lots of HDMI inputs,no need to use an HDMI switch, second it's a breeze to connect and configure. Within an Hour I had it connected and set up with the included microphone for sound calibration. I have used it every day since. The sound is neutral unless you select one off the many custom sound fields. It powers my 4 ohm speakers easily. Even the remote is easy to use.
