Trading up from a large Onkyo
We are streaming our LG smart tv directly to the A6A via the HDMI arc. Make sure to lock in the PCM, and,,, here is the big one!! If the sound drops out, it is not the amp. Act's like an overload dropout, will reset with change of speaker config or reboot. Ended up being the streaming device, Smart TV!! After the PCM setting all is good. This girl is a beast!!

Upgrade From A4A To Add Rear Height
Have the A4A and should have bought the A6A to begin with. Atmos is encoded for front and rear height to get the panning effect we all know so well with DD/DTS. This makes a pretty big difference with spatial awareness. Auro 3D allows for up mixing of DD streaming sources for a larger sound field that brings a large library of streaming content to life. The smartphone app and more so the web editor for adjusting the unit is fantastic. Being able to directly access settings without going through menus or needing the TV to adjust parameters is sweet! Appreciate the manual EQ for all speakers.

Would be nice to have the center spread function for surround in music. I understand this may be a licensing issue but other manufacturers have reimplemented this feature after pulling it. Also, there is an annoying sound delay when surround content is being played. No big deal when starting a movie but if a movie is paused, the delay makes you miss dialog. It's like the receiver is analyzing the signal every time. It's about 2 seconds for Atmos content. If this is the reason would be nice to have a feature lock into Atmos or DD/DTS so you wouldn't lose dialog after a pause and being forced to rewind.
My understanding of the new chipset in the latest Aventage line should allow for many enhancements to be made through firmware updates...
This is my 4th Yamaha in 4 decades and the experiences have been great! I liked Onkyo's I've had in the past but reliability has hurt that relationship for me.

Replaced an old RX-V1800 and have not been disappointed!
I purchased this after close to 20 years with my RX-V1800. It had developed a hum that I could not fix, nor could a Yamaha service tech. Also, I purchased a new Sony 4K high-end 65" television, and I needed to upgrade my receiver to handle the new technology of the TV. The RX-A6A checked all the boxes that I needed. I could not have been happier with the sound quality produced by the receiver. My movies have come to life and my music sounds fantastic.

The Most Complicated thing I Ever Used in my Entire Life
Unless you are familiar with the Yamaha system of letters and numbers you either need at least a 4 year degree from Yamaha if you want to do more with this than turn it on. What I really Don't like about it is (a) there are no cable box codes (b) when you turn it on it goes to mute and the only way thus far I've found to override this is by turning it off and back on - once that's done it sounds Fabulous - the sound is the best thing about it everything else is beyond my IQ and level of intelligence

Not sure I like it
This unit has awesome sound, not too happy with the front display (WAY TO SMALL) and lack of controls on the front. I am disappointed to receive this as a replacement for a defective product. I would not have chosen this myself based on the lacking things.
But the sound and features are really nice.

Great Sound and Ease of Use
I was surprised at how much this receiver improved the quality of sound from my Klipch speakers. Absolutely thrilled with the quality of the sound.
