      Comments about Yamaha 1350 Watt 9.2 Channel Audio / Video Receiver:

      This is a great sounding reciever, im happy with the sound quality and the features that come with it. However, twice now firmware updates have broken things with the unit. I contact Support and they tell me to bring the unit back to the dealer. The features were working fine until the firmware updates. The first issue broke the ability to use the USB port to connect to Iphone 4S, now the latest issue is Sirus will not connect and gives "Access Error" Sirius username/password works fine on all other devices.

        Comments about Yamaha 1350 Watt 9.2 Channel Audio / Video Receiver:

        I have been updating my home theater for about 2 years. Tried an Onkyo Receiver, not happy with the sound ever. Tried an Emotiva UMC-1 with an Anthem amp, better, but never the sound I was looking for to match the old Yamaha I had. So I got the RX-A3030. Very happy with the decision. The set up was fairly easy but I find the manual on disc a bit annoying. It worked first time and the YPOA was very accurate. Some minor tweaks and the wife and I are very pleased. Music is fantastic, crisp, clear, and defined so you hear all the instruments and nuances in the music. Video is great as well. I run everything through it, Blu-ray, DVD, HDTV, VCR, Phono, the switching is fast, no HDMI issues at all. I know it is top of the line but it is worth every penny. I only have one complaint it does produce some heat as I have it in a credenza. Buy it you'll love it.

        Comments about Yamaha 1350 Watt 9.2 Channel Audio / Video Receiver:

        I purchased this product to upgrade from my existing Yamaha RX-V1600. Although I am still working my way through all the functions on the RX-A3030, It is everything I was looking for in a receiver. Once it was easily hooked to my home theater system, I immediately noticed the widening, spaceous, depth in the sound. "you will not need to crank this baby up to start enjoying the sound." The picture is also great. Everything plays in 1080p, even the commercials.

          Very easy to setup. Remote control buttons are difficult to read as others comment when not backlit. Yamaha dynamic range control, dialog lift and DSP make listening a joy. Sound quality better in my opinion than THX class D receiver I previously owned. Hoping to get a nice long life out of this and decided to pay little extra for better Sabre32 DAC.

          Top of the Line Yamaha for a Reason

          By HBizzle

          from Green Bay, WI

          About Me Audiophile, Movie Enthusiast, Tech Savvy

          Comments about Yamaha 1350 Watt 9.2 Channel Audio / Video Receiver:

          Sound Quality is much better than I even anticipated. I switched from a mid-tier Onkyo that was about 7 years old. YPAO has evolved to challenge Audyssey MultEQ, with room equalization for 2 subwoofers.

          Flat EQ sounds great, but Natural may be more appropriate if you have bright speakers. I use the Manual EQ with the settings copied (yes, the receiver even does that) from Flat but the high end is in-between Flat & Natural EQs.

          The new DAC makes a world of difference and is probably worth the upgrade if you're considering a lower model. I'm going back through almost all of the music in my collection because I'm literally hearing things I've never heard before.

          Online music is okay, nothing spectacular. The recent firmware update allows access to Spotify (which at least has higher resolution audio available). Pandora will only stream higher resolutions to PC at this time.

          Overall, a great receiver. With a 3 year warranty, I hope to enjoy this receiver for a long time to come.

            A super sophisticated piece of technology. Having already owned Yamaha Receivers setting this one up was a breazee. Sound quality is what's expected from an AV Receiver of this caliber.
            Remote is way too big and some of the GUI functions within windows should have been superior and sophisticated. Other than that, its performance tops other brands in the market.
