    No Surround Sound Capability – only All Channel Stereo

    2023.08.28 – Yamaha RX-V4A recent purchase, set up on Saturday, wonderful! Sunday evening Yamaha made a v1.62 firmware update. Now, no surround sound, audio only comes out of center speaker. Test tone indicates all speakers/subwoofer working. Spoke with Yamaha tech, unable to determine issue and has escalated ticket. More feedback to come.2023.08.29 – Yamaha escalated tech support contacted. RX-V4A DOES NOT SUPPORT SURROUND SOUND as advertised on website and has been replaced by ALL CHANNEL STEREO which defeats the Surround Sound in movies (streaming, DVD, Blu-ray). Has to RMA and will continue search for receiver with true Surround Sound.

    It arrived defective on a Friday and I can’t talk to customer service until Monday. It did of after a few seconds. After three attempts it goes into protection mode.

    Does not work with normal Bluetooth headphones. Get a Denon x1700h.

    I could not get the headphones to pair and play music. I called Yamaha tech-support. They told me that the Yamaha receiver only works with headphones that have SCMS protocol. This is basically only Yamaha headphones.The receiver has other problems, but I was willing to ignore them until I found the headphone problem.No Atmos and other features. Check the other reviews.This is ridiculous because I pay for apple tv, netflix and other services to play movies yet yamaha will not provide the sound for “security”.Edit: After having this receiver for almost a month, I returned it. I got a Denon x1700h. I am glad I did. The Denon has the features that the yamaha should have, like atmos and an equalizer. I highly recommend the Denon.

    Ok but

    The sound is good but this AV receiver doesn’t work well with my cable box. It will work ok for a week and then there will be no sound from the cable box. Tried resetting the unit, powering off all devices, etc. but the only way to get sound from the cable box is power off all devices, unplug the hdmi in and out cables, reconnect and power up. A real pia!

    Musiccast isolates this from all other streaming devices. Audio cuts in and out regardless of

    I was looking for something to allow streaming in addition to other devices I have, in unison. This isolates itself from the rest of the real world products that work together in a connected house. This tech is junk. System is a good receiver but not worth the extra cost for a connected system.Update:. Now audio cuts out every 30-60 seconds. Maddening in the least.

    Great sound, easy set-up.

    This receiver has great sound even with old Cerwin Vega surround sound set. Made the speakers come alive. This was even replacing an old Yamaha receiver that I had. Wanted better sound and HDMI control thru the receiver and it works better with new Xbox S Series. Very pleased so far.

    No audio outputs!

    This receiver sounds great. Unfortunately I found out when I went to hook up my wireless headphones that there are no audio outputs! There is the headphone jack in the front which is not the right signal for the wireless base unit and also the wires are visible and you have to get up and plug and unplug when you want to hear the speakers. There are two subwoofer outs, that’s it. So I thought I could solve my problem using bluetooth headphones to watch live TV since this receiver has bluetooth. The lipsync is so far off it’s unwatchable. Call to Yamaha tech support says there is no solution for this issue.

    Not True HDMI 2.1, 24GBPS ports = low quality passthrough

    I bought this under the assumption that fixing the 4k/120 passthrough issue with the hdmi ports means it would have true 40-48gbps passthrough, it does NOT it still has 24gbps ports and the ‘fix’ is that it reduces the color format and range to 4:2:0 limited, The experience hooking this up to my LG Oled was of great disappointment, The colors were off and the look was washed out even calibrating it the colors seem greatly reduced and then I noticed the 4:2:0 no RGB full or 4:4:4 and only limited color range.HDMI 2.1 should mean something, it should mean full hdmi 2.1 ports that can passthrough video to a modern display from a rtx 30 card and this does NOT.ALSO even if its a minor element the user interface has the biggest latency I have seen in 20 years, Hit a button and give it a good 8 seconds before it responds, moving down or up the interface while selecting also requires patience, 1 Mississipi 2 Mississipi etc no joke this interface is an absolute joke.I’m returning and purchasing a Denon AVR-S660H because it has full 40 GBPS ports and can pass through 444/RGB full so we will see how that works outUPDATE: I got the Denon and it works perfectly, not only does it allow the full color passthrough but to my shock it supported G-sync passthrough right away! Yamaha told me they had no statement when they would support passthrough, Hah I’ll never attempt to try a Yamaha product again and go straight to the Denon from now on.

    Product stopped working after 40 days

    Product stopped working after return was allowed. Product stopped sending the HDMI signal. I bought new HDMI cables and reconnected. Product worked less than a day. After setting up with several old HDMI, nothing worked. All cables worked when connected directly from ROKU to TV. I bought a Sony receiver and all is well. Yamaha went to dumpster.

    Excellent

    I’m currently driving 2 Revel M16’s, with some m optimizations in settings I was able to make this receiver output beautiful audio. Stunning. I’m getting the expected amount of bass, and have no issues. Only complaint is the interface is a bit laggy over HDMI.

    TOTAL FAILURE

    I ordered this receiver for a customers installation, it was supposed to be a amazon refurbished unit, right away it had problems with the front panel controls, it then said to do a firmware upgrade when it finished it just had an error code and from then on it wouldn’t do anything, the display just said internal error ! needless to say I lost my customer he didn’t want to wait, and I had to wait 30 days to receive my refund after it was returned ! I’m not a happy camper.

    Great receiver for Next Gen Gaming

    I hooked this receiver up to my PS5 and Xbox Series X, and everything works great. The unit I received has the updated HDMI board, which gave this AV receiver a bad rep. I only have a 3.1 setup, but it sounds better than my old setup. Using a Bluetooth headset works great though you have to mute the receiver so the sound isn’t going to your headset and speakers.

    Very Impressive Receiver.

    The media could not be loaded.

    I’m very Impressed with this Receiver, Looks nice, Sounds even better. Display is Small, but manageable at night ;).My only complaint is the Sound Modes, I don’t like Any of them, I just keep in on All Speakers & it sounds Amazing. Bluetooth works flawlessly.If you can find this Receiver on Sale it’s #Perfect without breaking the Bank.@Paired with FLUANCE 10 inch SUB & 5.0 Surround package.

    Super easy setup but annoying sleep features

    This receiver was super easy to set up. The included auto-calibration mic made it super simple. Video and sound quality is great. The only issue is that it’s a bit laggy when it comes to switching inputs (takes about 10 seconds) and it will frequently go to sleep (though I think playing more with the sleep settings may fix this). It will auto-power on when an Apple TV v4 is connected and a button on the remote is pressed. It doesn’t seem to support volume control over HDMI which is disappointing.

    Missing the function I bought it for

    The main function I purchased this receiver for was so I can yell at Alexa to play something on Yamaha via Spotify. One would think that if it works with Alexa, surely it will work with Spotify. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The Yamaha/Alexa software supports many streaming services, but not the most popular one.So, if you are considering the combo of Yamaha+Alexa+Spotify, look elsewhere.

    You better have a subwoofer!

    I bought this Yamaha A/V receiver at twice the cost of my previous Yamaha receiver, thinking I could get more definitive bass effects. Even though it (supposedly} has twice the power output/channel I can’t adjust the output for low frequencies. It seems designed for movies with that low frequency “rumbling” that you experience in THS sound-tracked action sequences. When I listen to music i.e. Rock or symphony orchestras, it’s pitifully weak. My old cheaper Yamaha was superior in this regard. NOW I guess I have to go spend another $250-300 to get a subwoofer with all its shortcomings where quality bass is needed. Or spend a couple of thousand on a power amp/preamp/equalizer. I’ve fiddled with the controls for 2 days, tried the “optimum speaker output” feature, but you need to plug your sub in first. What happened to the good old stereophonic sound? Instead of this being a simple upgrade, it’s now a money-spending odyssey. Obviously, the receiver doesn’t have enough true RMS power output to do the job without a powered subwoofer to help. The woofers were designed for accurate reproduction down to 40hz. Now I can barely detect them. ADS L710’s are an excellent loudspeaker and were $550/ pair in 1975.

    Finally

    I’ve finally gotten the AV of my dreams. This AV paired with Klipsch speakers is a beautiful rich sound that is incomparable. Bonus: if your neighbors aren’t fond of you, this system will will certainly give them a reason haha. You cannot go wrong, thanks Yamaha!

    Highly Disappointed

    I have been a life long Yamaha fan and have purchased several of their receivers over the years. This unit has been nothing but a headache. It worked fine for a month or two. Then the software locked up and would not even boot. Was finally able to hardwire the Ethernet and perform a firmware upgrade. I reset the unit to factory and then performed another firmware update. This is time consuming for this model. Upon reconnecting the unit, the audio did not immediately work. Powered off and on and problem solved. Several days later, it will pass through the HDMI video, but no audio to the receiver speakers. I’ve never had an issue with Yamaha in the past, but this item is certainly not worth the effort. I just regret that I’ve thrown away the box. Might be better off tossing this one in the trash and purchasing an older model.

    Beautiful Sound at a Reasonable Price

    This A/V Receiver has many deluxe features but the most important one is the outstanding sound it produces from both video and pure audio sources. The best feature in my opinion is the ability to control the volume of each individual speaker to compensate for your listening room dynamics. Sure it has the automatic acoustic adjustment, but I found the manual adjustment to be much better suited to my listening environment. I only needed a 5.1 capable system, and this one sure delivers! I am very pleased with this receiver and highly recommend it!

    Not for legacy equipment

    It is easy to setup, and has a decent mobile app. If you got older equipment with S-Video, composite, COAX, or component, this receiver is not for you. This is a multi-port HDMI receiver along with internet streaming. Optical and RCA (l/r) audio supported. I am not taking advantage of its sound capabilities so cannot comment.

    Great Purchase

    I replaced a 7 year old Onkyo with this receiver and I couldn’t be more pleased. There is a highly noticeable improvement in sound quality along with a big improvement in picture quality on my TV. I was surprised at the difference and don’t regret the purchase in the least. It was a wise investment. Good value for the money. Surprisingly easy to setup and use. Don’t hesitate on this one.

    I just whish this receiver supported Atmos

    Setup was easier than my previous model Yamaha, eARC and ARC setup specifically. There are a lot of options to examine as far as fine tuning connectivity and signal mapping. You may need to do some Googling to get things sorted out in that respect. This unit sounds great and works great.

    Easy setup

    The unit came with everything needed except a manual. Once I downloaded that from the web, it was a piece of cake to setup. Sound is great. Love the way the RX-V4, the TV, and the DirecTV are integrated for control of everything from one remote.

    Yamaha Receiver

    Bought exact same one from Best Buy, because this one arrived later than the expected delivery date. That being said, great having the option of adding a second subwoofer. MusicCast capable. Bigger display would be nice, but I’m ok with the one it comes with BM because the unit looks very sleek and clean.

    Yamaha Makes a Great AV Receiver

    I replaced an older Yamaha Receiver due to a lightning strike with this new one. The upgrade is great and it works perfectly with my new Samsung 65 TV. The user manual could be better but I suppose I will have to go online to figure out all it can do.

    Really good head unit with a few quirks

    If you just need an AV Receiver to just make clear sound for you speakers this unit works well. It has great sound quality and easily fills a room with plenty of power to drive your speakers.However this isn’t that unit and comes with MusicCast and a lot of other digital features. When they work it’s great fairly seamless and I was able to mostly get features working. You will need the app I wasn’t able to get features programmed on the unit without it.When it doesn’t work it is horrible. One feature or another will just stop working with the 3rd party functions. It will then take Sony way to long to release an update that may restore that function. Home Automation never worked right with this unit and was extremely frustrating how often it would just stop working.

    Good Value, No HDMI Issues

    Update 10/2022: 9-months after my original review this receiver still had great sound and HDMI is working great.Original Review 01/2022When i first set up the RX-V4A, the video signal to the TV went out intermittently. I read that this new generation of receivers from Yamaha, Denon, Onkyo, and Pioneer had HDMI connection problems, and some customer reviews echoed that. So, I assumed the problem was with the receiver. Updating firm ware didn’t help. A couple of days ago, I replaced an old hdmi cable with a newish one–I haven’t had a problem since.The RX-V4A is a bit slower at passing video through at start up than my last receiver.Yamaha reported hdmi problems for receivers built in 2020, but only for very specfic situations. I suspect that this led people on the internet to extrapolate and assume their receiver had a problem when it was just a faulty hdmi cable like I did. Then the echo chamber of the internet built that into a thing. According to Yamaha, the hdmi problem was fixed by new firmware and a new hdmi board which is in receivers built after 2020. I purchased my receiver from Amazon in September 2021, and it has the new board. (To check if you have the new board check your firmware on the receiver, if it has an * before the word Version [*Version], you have the new board. I will report back if I start having hdmi or other issues with the receiver.The RX-V4A supports the features in which i’m interested. I’m currently running it in 3.1 configuration with Jamo C93 fronts, Jamo C9Cen center, and Velodyne VX-11 subwoofer. I’ve very please with the sound for music and movies. Dialogue in video is crystal clear. The RX-V4A is 5.2 and does not support ATMOS, so no 7 speaker surround. But I don’t want that. I want clean sound for my 3.1 set up, which the RX-V4A delivers.

    Impressive av receiver at $500 price point

    This is my first Yamaha receiver, and I am completely satisfied for the price. It replaces a somewhat more powerful Harmon Kardon, but has plenty of current capability to easily drive transients while at near reference sound pressure levels using sensitive control monitors (JBL) and a powered sub.The sound processing options are many, as expected from Yamaha, and Bluetooth connectivity to streaming services is simple to use.Aesthetically, the unit is stylish with minimal multifunction controls on the front panel and a hefty substantial modern look.While there are more powerful and more nuanced sounding receivers, for the price I think overall this Yamaha would be hard to beat.

    Maybe not ideal for Stereo music.

    I have Klipsch RP260F floor speakers which have low end bass. Connected to the Yamaha RX V4A with settings for large speakers and loud for extra bass, the lower bass is not evident. The upper bass, midrange and high end is clean, and crystal clear. I get a good center image and wide sound stage. I suspect Yamaha expects a subwoofer or two. The receiver does have multi band equalization for each channel although I think the automatic set up is for levels and volume This receiver is well worth the price with its Music cast function. For home theater it is truly a winner.

    Nice looking, excellent sounding surround processor that is weak on power.

    This ‘receiver’ is a good value and provides a nice sound. Interface is intuitive. remote works well. Adjustments are a little basic – you will have to measure distances to speakers. Built in EQ is limited. Has a bunch of “gimmicky” surround modes that add echo like a large hall or soundstage. Excellent connectivity via CAT-6/WIFI/Bluetooth. Cant fault it for much EXCEPT that the amplifier seems weak to me. I was a little irritated when I turned it up, that it starts to clip and isn’t as loud as I would have liked. But if you don’t plan on blasting your music, it works well for the price.

    Magnificent Sound and Video

    I have been a fan of Yamaha receivers for a long time. This is my third Yamaha receiver paired with a Klipsch 5.1 Reference Theater speaker system, a Samsung TU7000 TV, an Audio Technica turntable and a Sony DVD player. I cannot be more happy with the audio and the video quality produced through this receiver. There is a Yamaha AV connections guide/owners manual which can be downloaded to your phone which guides you through the connections and setup of the entire system, including sound optimization with the YPAO microphone. Wireless connection to my home WiFi system was effortless. However, it does take time to go through the setup process. Firmware updates are straight forward and seamless.I have two complaints. The remote is just as clunky as the previous Yamaha remotes I have owned and the front display on the receiver is way too small. I can’t understand why the designers did not, at least, increase the size of the front display to provide an easier way of viewing what the display is presenting.

    Cyclops 😉 👁 Awesome Receiver. Update: 120/4K update may never come.

    Update 4/9/2022I’m updating my review to 5 stars. Yamaha sent me packaging to have me receiver updated with the latest board. So now the receiver does everything as advertised.I’m just setting it up now, but so far I’m super impressed.Make sure to download and use the MusicCast app for ease of use and setup. It took me a few tries to connect.The MusicCast app lets you easily setup everything. Each input has a number of settings you can adjust. My new X900H found the receiver automatically and walked me through the integration process.I can easily play music on my iPad through Bluetooth on the receiver.The unit itself is much bigger than my V373, and it is shiny instead of matte.If anyone has any questions feel free to ask?Update: 12/03/2020It looks like all the new AVR’s were built with chips that may not be able to produce full 120/4K over HDMI. Yamaha still says that a future update will fix this issue, but I’m starting to wonder if I bought a failed product. I would hold off on purchasing until this is sorted. You can easily connect your Xbox or PS5 directly into your TV and use eARC to route the audio. This receiver is not necessary if you have an eARC compatible receiver.Hopefully they will offer a new receiver to those of us who bought these receivers, if the firmware update does not offer full 120/4K support. Apparently, they can fudge it by offering a lower color range, and still output 120/4K. I’m going to want a free upgrade or refund if we can’t get what we paid for.

    Great AV receiver, misleading information (no Dolby Atmos Height)

    The RX-V4A 5.2 Channel receiver is “compatible” but does not support Dolby Atmos (Height virtualization). Only the 7.1 model (RX-V6A) is capable of that. See Yamaha web site for exact specs.Otherwise it is a great device with good sound.

    The remote control isn’t working.Also there was no owner’s manual with the box. I had to download several Yamaha apps to get the receiver to work. So far so good BUT the remote will not work. Fresh, new batteries 2 times but no use.Amazon must use AI to help and the offer was package it up, ship and a refund. I managed to find the Amazon partners web site. I wrote them and within a few hours they called. GREAT service and a new remote is headed my way. The Yamaha receiver exceeds my expectations and I’m happy. I recommend Gramaphone.Months later I couldn’t be happier with this stereo.!

In conjunction with the Yamaha MusicCast app, operation is a breeze. Overall, the functionality is top tier and transitioning from watching TV/movies to gaming, and even casting music from my phone is seamless.

    Excellent home receiver!

    There’s a lot of people that are wanting a $2k unit out of a low- to mid-level receiver. You want audiophile quality? Throw a zero at the end of the price.We got this to replace our (still working) 20-year-old Panasonic receiver. We needed an HDMI hub, wanted better connectivity, better connection to our subwoofer, and a few new features would be nice. And we are blown away by the quality. It’s clean and clear. Configuration options are immense and really let you dial in the sound you want, whether you want to set up custom graphic EQ settings per speaker, or you just want to add some reverb and make it sound like you’re in a cathedral (what a strange option).We don’t have space for a 7.2 setup, otherwise, the V6A would’ve been our choice. The V4A doesn’t provide Atmos, but… whatever. That’d be the only feature I’d love to see with the V4A.Otherwise, if you want a home theater setup in your living room, this is a great option. I’m super happy with our choice.

    What am I missing about this receiver?

    I don’t get it. The interface is so sloooooooow! Changing functions with the remote is annoying. There is such a lag each time you went to go through the menu. As well, I can’t see the volume level on certain inputs. I guess the sound is ok but only cause I got this on their Xmas special, I would not pay $600! I got this for $280 after the Amex $60 discount. Some reason each time I turn on the receiver, it defaults to my Apple TV no matter which input it is on. As well, the LCD screen is not bright even on the brightest setting so can’t see anything from 6ft+ distance. I expected more for $600 MSRP.

    Amazing sound quality, truly impressed

    I’m impressed so far. This is my 4th AV Receiver purchase and my favorite one yet.I love the pure direct button on the remote, something lacking from my recent pioneer receiver.The bass response is noticeably much better in movies and music, more accurate sounding than my previous pioneers which sounded rather boomy, overly present at all volume levels.The scenes feature, while not new to yamaha, is very new to me and I’m excited to use that capability.YPAO auto calibration was shockingly accurate with the speaker distances, all were within .5ft margin of error.I did boost the subwoofer and changed the crossover to 120hz instead of the default 80 for some smooth bass overlap with my front towers.I get that movie theater feeling with this receiver paired up with the andrew jones line of pioneer speakers and a 12″ 150w subwoofer in my large living room (vaulted ceilings, wide open layout to kitchen).The presets for music, movie, weird dsp effects still suck imo. Worst sound possible using those “enhancements”. I think it’s time we just retire these features.

    Dissapointed

    I really wanted one of these receivers and they were hard to get… finally I got one, wired it all up to the speakers, followed the instructions, turned it on, it came on for 2 seconds then shut off and smelled like burnt wires (yup burned down), returned it, reluctantly got another. Hooked up the new one and it worked. I have the unit hooked to Klipsch 5.1 surround speakers. I use it mostly for listening to music and I can’t seem to get it to sound just right to my liking. There are a lot of features including an equalizer to adjust the sound, I probably just need to play with the features to get it tuned in. I don’t know if I would recommend to a friend.

    I really wanted to like this unit.

    I have been using a Yamaha amp (R-V905) for 20+ flawless years. I decided to do an “upgrade” (5.1) to more contemporary equipment. I bought Yamaha based upon my prior experience. I used this unit for about a week, but became discouraged with it because:1) Quirky controls2) Frequent unexplained “happenings.”3) I sensed some possible clipping and IM distortion at very high sound levels … which I enjoy.With mixed feelings, because I might have asked too much, I returned the unit.

    It has met my needs and expectations

    I purchased this YAMAHA RX-V4A for the sole purpose of providing surround sound in a gaming application and it has delivered what I was hoping for, 120Hz in 4k, also allowing VRR in my case V-sync, when checking display panels via “Nvidia Control Panel” I see nothing but my Display panel it’s not being intercepted by the AVR which is what I was needing.

    High end performance at a reasonable price

    My Denon 5.1 was on its last leg and after reading more about this Yamaha I made the jump. Extremely easy setup and speaker connection. It’s powering a pair of Klipsch towers, SW-45 center channel, SW-12 subwoofer and two bookshelf speakers for surround like a champ. Music on the “5 channel” program is crisp clear and immersive. Action/Adventure films get great separation between effects channels and heavy dialog drama movies deliver speech accurately. The remote took me a little time on the learning curve as there were no actual instructions on its functions, but it didn’t take long to grasp. I used the calibration tool first and it tweeked my speakers decible levels with no problems.

    Plenty of power for 2 x 50′ cable runs with 14GA wire. Sounds great with KEF Q150 speakers in a 20′ by 30′ area. I was amazed out of the box it turn on and off with my Apple TV 4K and Epson 5050UB projector. The remote on the Apple TV 4K controlled the receiver volume without me having to set anything. Video quality is great. The built-in software to analyze the room acoustics is a lot faster than it used to be and seems very accurate.

    It does its job for a reasonable price

    First, let me say that I’m not an audiophile. I don’t care about post-processing effects, audio zones, or support for various streaming services. I’ve got a decent 5.1 speaker setup and I just want all of my other devices, which include a PS4, a Nintendo Switch, a gaming PC, and a blu-ray player, to play surround sound properly. Before buying this, I had a rats’ nest of splitters and switches chained together in order to switch between all of them, but it never worked as well as I liked, so I decided to buy a proper receiver to handle it. Do note that while the headline for my review says “reasonable price,” that’s only compared to other AV receivers — the mess of cables and boxes I replaced maybe cost $100 all together, and part of me finds it hard to believe that there’s no better solution for my problem that costs less than $550… but similarly-capable receivers only get more expensive than this one.The good news is, it works! Setting everything up was simple; I connected my speakers, plugged all of my devices into the receiver, and plugged the receiver into the TV, and multi-channel audio works with everything. It also has a few other features I didn’t expect to use that I’ve grown quite fond of; it can play music directly from DLNA servers on the local network, and it can play audio both from and to Bluetooth devices. Super handy for when I want to play a game on the TV but listen with my headphones.There are also a bunch of minor issues that add up to me not being 100% satisfied. HDMI eARC support is funky. If eARC is enabled on my TV, then turning on the TV causes the receiver to turn on my PS4, which is not usually what I want. If eARC is disabled on my TV, then turned on the receiver does not turn on the TV, and the TV doesn’t play audio for its built-in apps through the receiver. Turning on one of the consoles does not turn on the receiver, although the receiver does turn on the TV and pass through the A/V signal — except it only passes through stereo audio and not 5.1. The end result here is that I have to manually turn on both the receiver and TV, which is annoying.Second, I would have assumed it would have a separate volume level for every input. It does not. Audio coming from the Switch is louder than the PS4, and audio from DLNA music sources is *much* louder than the Switch. The receiver has an “audio trim” feature that lets you apply a relative adjustment of -6 to +6 dB to each source, but that’s just not enough; I still have to manually adjust the volume level a bit when I switch sources. Why doesn’t it just have a per-input volume setting?The receiver’s IR sensor is also incredibly sensitive to interference. My TV and blu-ray player have never had a problem, but if there’s another IR source such as a remote control or even the sun coming through a nearby window, the receiver just doesn’t respond to inputs at all. It took me several days to figure this out; I almost returned my receiver as defective before I discovered I just had to make sure every other IR source was blocked.It’s also much larger than I was expecting. I’ve since learned that apparently this is just a standard size, but as I’ve said, I’m not an audiophile; I look at the electronics in this box and see that it could easily be half, maybe even a quarter of its size if they tried to make it as small as possible. It just doesn’t need to be this big.For me, this is basically just a glorified A/V switch for my TV, and it does what I need it to do. It has enough caveats that I can’t give it a wholehearted recommendation, but so far it’s still the best solution I’ve found.

    Awesome receiver and tons of options that can be customized in every conceivable way

    In a word this receiver is just awesome and I simply could not be happier with my purchase!There are so many ways to customize this receiver it can be almost daunting at first but I mean that in a good way. Yes there is a bit of a learning curve even for a geek like me but I have found that to be a pleasant experience because Yamaha has very a very good user manual that goes into great detail on everything.I also love how you get on screen menus that display on your TV or computer monitor via the HDMI out connection on the receiver.Another thing is that this really works in conjunction with XBOX series X. It wasn’t that long ago that you simply could NOT find an HDMI audio extractor for the XBOX that would allow you to break out the audio and send it to your surround sound speaker system while also supporting the full 4K @ 120 Hz refresh rate at full resolution. This receiver does all that but you do have to play around just a bit with the XBOX audio settings to make this work. Largely this means disconnecting your headset connected to XBOX so that an additional audio option becomes configurable and allows audio to work with 5.1 surround sound setup.This receiver does a great job of splitting out the audio and sending it directly to my speakers. Finally I don’t have to use headsets every time I want to do something on the XBOX! :)I have this receiver connected to Klipsch Reference Cinema Dolby Atmos 5.1.4 System speakers and the sound quality is nothing short of amazing! I thought my old 5.1 surround speakers were good (though they were starting to have problems at 13 years old) but with a combination of this receiver and this new Klipsch speaker set there is NO comparison – it is just so much better now! I did not even realize how much I was missing out on until I had this new surround system connected.And one last note: Yamaha customer support is also really, really good. I did have a few questions and needed assistance on a couple of things and it was quick & painless to get a hold of a live human being unlike many companies that make this really difficult. And the next day Yamaha level 2 support even called me back to make sure I had everything worked out to my satisfaction and I did not even request the call back. Now how is that for a company that goes above and beyond and truly believes in customer service? AMAZING!I very highly recommend this receiver.

    Sounds great when it works but that’s not often

    This is the buggiest, most unreliable piece of junk I’ve ever used in my home theater. It routinely takes 4-5 tries to get it to change inputs. I turn on the xbox, switch to that input and a moment later the darn thing decides I really wanted to watch some TV on the shield. I change it back but no, it KNOWS I didn’t mean it. I change it back again and, ooops!, it lost the HDMI handshake and I no longer have video at all. Power everything off and try again!Sometimes it just turns off shortly after booting up. It might do this 5+ times before it actually powers on and stays on.Sometimes you just can’t get video to pass through without powering everything off and carefully plugging it all back in again.The shield recently added dolby vision support but the receiver needed a firmware update to support. Very easy to apply but since applying it I now can’t get the receiver to display ANY video after being turned off. I have to unplug the shield and plug it back in with the receiver on to get a video signal since applying the new firmware…but hey, dolby vision does work now.I will say though that when it works it sounds great. For the price I think it’s fair to expect more. I’d expect it to actually work.

    Great upgrade from one Yamaha to another.

    I’m loving the upgrade to my surround system. I replaced it because my 2011 Yamaha was working fine, but I wanted the WiFi, Airplay, Bluetooth. I use a turntable, but it does not have a phono plug so I got this Sony that has a built in preamp and Bluetooth. Both settings work well.I am really impressed with getting rid of the optical cable and using the eARC HDMI with Fire TV. Also, the on screen menu is great (got some help watching YouTube vids). I just set up the eq after two weeks of owning it, and wow. It pops.For the price and not wanting to go nuts yet with Dolby Atmos it is a great buy.

    YAMAHA RX-V4A 5.2-Channel AV Receiver

    I owned Yamaha stereo setup for 40 years and the amp finally failed. Can’t complain for its age.This new Amp has many features and nuances that are very new for me to learn the ins and outs.By contacting Yamaha Customer Service, they were gracious, patient and very helpful to guide me and answer many questions I had.I am very happy with this amp and the help I received.

    Needs Firmware: Updated Review

    Receiver paired with a Sony X900H via Zeskit 8k Cable, running PS5 (Direct to A/V via Port 3 eArc) and Xbox Series X (Port 4 HDMI 2.1)eArc: functionality is broken and hopefully can be fixed in firmware update.Some TV apps will drop Audio from 1 second to up to 30 seconds (could be 15 min apart or up to a hour or more apart)eArc is not able to handle xbox series x audio output at 4k 120hz without dropping audio, the only way to get no audio drops is running at 4k 60hz. Switching to tv speakers confirms no audio drops and it only happens through eArc. Others have reported the same issue with Samsung and LG tvs.Color banding:There is a fair amount of color banding when running the PS5 in hdmi mode 1. The only way to remove it is to change to hdmi mode 2. The receiver is stating its going from YCbCr 4:2:2 to YCbCr 4:2:0. HDR isn’t working properly. Tested with Demon Souls and the sky has extreme color banding, also tested with 4KUHD amazon prime movies.Tested PS5 direct to x900h and no issues with color banding or hdr.These are huge issues but the receiver audio processing and sound itself is great for the price. hopefully the next firmware update will address these issues.

    Amazing sound, wonky setup and remote, MusicCast app saves the day!

    The Yamaha RXv4a sounds wonderful. It’s powering B&W Cdm 7s with absolutely no strain and any volume level. Clarity and stereo separation is excellent, better that the Music Hall 70.2 (something like that) it replaced. The back panel offers no surprises, all inputs and outputs are clearly marked and where you would expect them. The front panel controls are great, basically a large volume control, a smaller multifunction knob for input select and tuning. I find the receiver to be visually attractive.BUT…the overall setup is truly inscrutable. You really need it connected to a monitor or TV to view the menus. The menus and submenus are not very logically defined, at least to my mind. There is an odd delay between pressing set up on the remote and the receiver response which is quite confusing…I thought. the thing was defective. There are predefined “scenes” you can choose, although no where can I find the actual definitions of them. There are preset audio scenarios, although it is thought for me to find them when I want to play with them. Overall it seems like a lot to have to learn just to listen to some music or watch TV.Don’t get me started on the remote. It is the absolute worst I have ever encountered. The buttons are so tiny they hurt my fingers, especially after the long, exhausting set up experience.Tech support is friendly, but they seem frazzled and frustrated. It seemed as thought they had so many quirky products to support that it was difficult for them to answer basic questions. And kinda hard questions are just ignored, like why does the Yamaha receiver not power off my TV, but my TV can control the power on the receiver?But a redeeming feature is Music Cast. It is pretty easy to use and there is lots of great internet audio content available. It is a lot like Sonos, but you get to use your own audio equipment.
