Customer Reviews for Yamaha RX-A1080 AVENTAGE 7.2-Channel AV Receiver with MusicCast
Yamaha in my My opinion has been crushing the competition for decades in reliability, true natural audio reproduction Home Theater processing with their PEQ, and now with AI. I will mention that some other AVR Manufactures can and do Spec out better in certain areas. All things being equal when your looking at a spec sheet what's the difference. Do I recommend Yamaha's Adventage line, Absolutely. Just about any Yamaha AVR, will not need added cooling for heat removal when placed in accommodations with ventilation. Other, Manufacturers may need help with cooling off, added "Droid" fan placed on top for added heat removal. There have been Discussions of that issue with heat and reliability of AVR's todate. In a Word, Just Buy Yamaha.
I was previously using a Pioneer VSX 1020 and was somewhat underwhelmed by the overall sound quality. I knew I wanted to incorporate some Atmos capabilities and was looking for an receiver that would provide a little more oomph and features.
The difference is unbelievable. The Polk speakers came alive.
I used the calibration mic with multiple Listening positions. This was very straight forward process.
I have been using the amp now for 30 days and would certainly recommend. Looking forward to it’s big brother when we create the dedicated theater room.

Fast forward six months not only did one of my HDMI inputs die but the unit also sounds and awful. L /R speakers are flat, tinny. The Center marginally better. Surrounds good but the sub's level has to be cranked up to obtain any meaningful, balanced bass.
Half the time, the sub LFE input will not get a signal until I crank the volume. Once it dies, it turns on.
The sub is fine, when I connect my old receiver the bass rock, i had to lower it to a third of thee needed volume for Yamaha.
I was so excited at first with this one. There are days now I want to just throw it out.
Google low bass and you will find dozens upon dozens of similar complaints.
