    Comments about Yamaha 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Built-In High Performance Network AV Receiver - Black:

    I really, REALLY want to give the RX-V677 a higher rating because this feature-packed receiver deserves some attention (my actual rating would be a 3.5, but it could easily have been a 5), but its HDMI performance brings down my score a bit. As an audio receiver, I am VERY satisfied with the RX-V677 - it sounds amazing and I can really discern the various sound channels in my 6.1 speaker setup. (I am upgrading from an older Yamaha receiver.) The zone setup and controls take a bit of getting used-to, but it works very well. Everything works as it should as far as audio decoding goes; but unfortunately I cannot say the same for video through HDMI. To put it simply: when using an HDMI device with this receiver, the picture will occasionally go black for a few seconds and then return back to normal until it intermittently does it again 30 minutes to an hour later (please note that the sound does not stop whenever this occurs). This happens with all of my devices when passed through this receiver (but not when connected directly to my television) and I am using certified HDMI 1.4 cables. I was hoping that this behavior would be remediated with the latest firmware update but unfortunately, this is not the case. I will keep monitoring this issue for now, but am rather disappointed in having to experience this at all. On a positive note, when the HDMI pass-through is working, it works well. So to end this review: As an audio receiver, the RX-V677 is outstanding; as an HDMI switching-device, only okay with so much unmet potential.

      Comments about Yamaha 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Built-In High Performance Network AV Receiver - Black:

      Finally got a new HD 4K TV and needed a new audio unit with HDMI connections. Have a 2nd location off of my other stereo that works for my set up so it was a major factor in deciding what to get and this fit the bill. And I also love the 7.1 feature so now I can really utilize all 7 (+subwoofer) speakers. Very easy to set up, love how easy it is to switch back and forth between settings.
      Had an issue with an other HDMI unit but this does not seem to be an issue at all. Connects all my older non HDMI electronics (ie. turn table, VCR and karaoke units) with ease
      Great power, watched Jurassic Park 3D and the whole house shook, better than the theater
      Highly recommend

        This product replaces a Marantz SR7200, and more recently an Onkyo TX-NR636. The system drives five Definitive Technology tower speakers. The sound is clear and loud.

        Comments about Yamaha 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Built-In High Performance Network AV Receiver - Black:

        I was looking for a replacement for my aging HK receiver. I wasn't necessarily looking for the highest end but wanted to make my purchase as future-proof as possible. So I started limited my searches to HDMI 2.0 inputs and then, based on various online reviews and comments, decided on this unit. I have no regrets at all.

        The unit was exceptionally easy to set up; everything worked as expected the first time with no headaches. (I wish my new 4K TV had been that easy!) The onscreen menus are easy to navigate and understand.

        The only real downside is that I cannot figure out how (or if it's even possible) to set a default input. I want it to default to my satellite input since that's what I use most of the time. But it wanted to default to my Bluray player. I turned off HDMI control on the Bluray, and then it started defaulting to the Smart TV. Since my satellite DVR doesn't offer HDMI control, I guess the unit can't switch to it automatically. A small gripe, but a gripe nonetheless.

        The sound is fantastic with my 5.1 setup. The reviews I had read didn't steer me wrong. Overall, I'm very pleased and would do it again. It's an exceptional receiver.

        I love the unit and the sound quality. Wiring and set up was extremely easy. I use the mobile app available for Android OS and the app is super simple, clear, and precise as well. My only complaints are that HDMI inputs cannot be output as component video & audio. My home theater projector is an older model without HDMI so I have to output as component. I haven't played with all of the features yet but my initial impressions are great. Another feature I found interesting is that my remote will not control the unit which is hidden behind my projector screen yet the mobile app will contol the unit flawlessly.

            Comments about Yamaha 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Built-In High Performance Network AV Receiver - Black:

            This unit is used in my bedroom to watch movies and listen to music. At present, it only has a set of Klipsch Icon F28 front speakers on it. The sound is amazing. I've been using it everyday for about a month now. This is actually my second review. My first review was a bit unfair as I found out I didn't know as much about the unit as I thought I did. Now that I have used it a lot for the past month, I can't brag enough about it. The sound is amazing, the video is amazing and I'm still learning about all the things it can do. Even without using any video up scaling, the TV shows an improved picture. I have a Yamaha YST-SW315 subwoofer on it's way and can't wait to hook it up. Next I plan to add a Yamaha NS-C310 center channel speaker, but I can honestly say, even without a center channel speaker hooked up, dialog has greatly improved while watching movies. It connected to my pc (which is connected via Ethernet cable) wirelessly without me having to do any setup at all. MP3 music sounds as good as a cd when I use the receiver. Yamaha has impressed (and got me hooked) with this receiver.

            The product is really easy to use and I like the way it works wirelessly. Maybe the app could be improved for a better selection of songs and the lack of the frontal connectors its a pitty.
