Solid Home Theater Reciver
I personally enjoy listening to my HI Resolution audio with various DSD feeds from my server. It's a minor issue but not being able to listen to multi track DSD is a slight disappointment.

Great Receiver
I have a 7.1 channel setup with a wireless sub. Movie sound reproduction is terrific. for example - Jurassic Park when the dinosaur creates a ground tremor you can feel your chest vibrate. Listening to a CD never sounded as good before I bought this receiver.

Outstanding Design and Performance
The design and build quality of the RX-A4A doesn't get any better, and the most important aspect, sound quality, rivals any receiver - even those that are much more expensive. Yamaha offers the same (or better) performance, quality, and design, as much higher-priced competitors products.

Poor web interface
I just connected my new RX-A4A and upgrade for my A1050. Everything seems to work great with the exception of my DVR. I have a Xfinity X1 Box that worked great with the 1050 but with the A4A the sound kept muting. It was very intermittent not regular intervals, it would mute (ie not sound) routinely without any reason. I was trying different settings and eventually found that by turning off the adaptive DRC this cured the constant muting and has not done so again?

Secondly I have to say I was expecting the web interface to be better but is in fact worse. The settings screen could be more helpful there are several areas where a setting says something like mode 1 mode 2 and mode 3 without any indications what these modes mean? The desktop patterns are lame.

The Video does seem to have improved!

Outstanding Audio/Video performance!
Well my Yamaha RX-A4A came in today. I've had many Yamaha's in the past, most recent the RX-A1080, my Son's also have Yamaha's RX-A1080 in their setups. This RX-A4A does Not disappoint! Beautiful looking AVR, surround sound is what you would expect from Yamaha. I like the AI very nice touch! I'm still playing around with it, a ton of settings if you choose to mess with. No issues what so ever. No CEC issues No audio or video dropouts! My setup is 7.1 Polk Audio Signature 60's, Signature 30 center and Signature 15's for surrounds with Monoprice 12" Sub, Sony UBP-X700 4K player with Hisense 55U6G 4K tv and a Audio Technica Turntable. This AVR is a no-brainer, absolutely beautiful looking AVR. With Yamaha's extra 2 years of warranty you get 5 years total! Highly recommend the Aventage line of Yamaha!

Great sound with some bugs
Although I’ve only had this for a few days. Yamaha needs to roll out updates. first off The sound quality is amazing but not without a few bugs. I am currently using an nvidia shield connected to the receiver. My tv is a C1 Every time I try and watch a Dolby vision movie the screen blank but the audio is playing. Only when I switch inputs and switch back I get the video. And for some reason everything I try to watch onHBO MAX the audio cuts in and out. The only solution I found was to connect nvidia shield into the tv and use eARC. Once I do that everything works as it should. Btw I had a denon 3700h and a Yamaha tsr 700 and they both worked fine with no issues.
