Quick recommendations this looks fabulous delivers really clean sound with plenty of power. Takes a minute to learn remote but replaced an older flagship model that lasted 10 years and still wow. HDMI was missing with the proper hand shake for 4 k now seems to be resolved. 8k upscaling works very well I'd say give it a try. Not cheap but well made!

Really nice but has some bugs.
I have replaced my Onkyo receiver which was about 5 years old. There are many features of this receiver, enough that will get your head spinning. Manual is a PDF download, would have preferred an actual manual. I have Amazon Fire cube connected and run most of the system with that. There are some bugs besides the usual Alexa bugs. Sometimes it goes to the wrong device. With the Apple TV I have had no issues and not sure if it is an apple update or another update the TV now sometimes has issues playing video from the Apple TV. It goes to a green scrambled screen and sometime bounces between that and normal picture back and forth. Stopping the movie and restarting seems to fix the issue most of the time. The cables are all new and worked fine up until a week or two ago. All devices are plugged into the receiver then go into the TV except XBOX X. I have a playstation 5 going through the receiver. Sometimes when playing a movie from what ever device the volume indicator pops up as if I hit the remote but I did not. It usually does it after a minute or two of playing something on the screen. I would have preferred dedicated buttons for the devices rather than toggle left or right on the remote to go through the inputs. That may be what is causing issues with Alexa picking up the devices. I have had to unplug the receiver a time or two in two months to fix the receiver not responding to commands from the Yamaha remote, volume would not work one time and another time would not respond to the remote. I have Apple TV, Sony PS5, Xbox X, Blu Ray player, Amazon Fire TV Cube and a few more devices connected.The calibration in the room is really good. I have two subs and have 5 surround speakers and 4 Atmos speakers in the room. A few of the speakers were listed as being further away than they were. The surround and Atmos movies sound phenomenal. The receiver gets really loud. However although listed at 150 watts only is true of listening in 2 channels.

Very happy as usual
I am a Yamaha fan. I own many Yamaha products and I can attest to the quality. This Aventage A6A is perfect for my first home theater experience. Plenty of power and features means this will last me for years to come.

Sound the way you want it - made easy.
We use the receiver for listening to Music in the living area and when needed on our out door porch Zone 2 speakers. We also enjoy theater quality sound for movies and excellent voice quality for regular TV viewing.

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!!
