Packed with features.
Love this feature rich AV receiver. Did a hw upgrade for the HDMI fix and since everything operates flawlessly. Frankly it packs a punch in feature set and will likely use a fraction of it but eager to explore. Great value too compared to comparably featured competitors.

This is a great Unit
My former YAMAHA Unit was great and 10 years old; it ran well until it started to die. So, I again chose a YAMAHA of equivalent capability. The Unit exceeds my old one in capability and versatility, but--VERY POOR Manual; VERY POOR MENU SYSTEM and hard to set up. One sentence per page manual; no index and sections do not relate. It is like a kid put it together and then translated to badly. Hard to ge my Logitec Universal remote to control it. It is very functional once you get past all the poor documentation--thankfully the YAMAGA HELP LINE was VERY GOOD. I would buy it again, but if you are not technically oriented, better have someone who can set it up!

Fantastic receiver.
Previously had an RX-V665 that I've been using for some 15 years (give or take). After getting a 4k TV, it was time to finally upgrade the receiver.

So far, the receiver has exceeded expectations on most fronts. I could immediately hear a difference in the sound on some of my favorite games, even though the speakers and the speaker wires were not replaced.

Seeing the difference in the 4k video is amazing as well. I've had to re-learn a couple games because of the HDR actually being different colors (an orange to more red for example) and how to spot things.

General setup was simple to do otherwise and the familiar remote layout had me back into my gaming in no time.

So far only two 'issues' have been experienced.
The first has been with the HDMI pulsing to power on. There were a few instances where turning on the PS5 powered up both the Receiver and the TV, but almost every instance has just powered on the TV. I'm sure there is a setting somewhere I've overlooked, but this isn't a huge problem since I have the remote close enough.

The second item so far is watching youtube videos from the PS5. The sound sync appears to be different where I get an echo effect as the receiver is a different timing than the tv speakers. Also not a huge issue, I just turn the volume off for the TV so the echo is gone. I believe this is also another setting somewhere, but haven't been able to fully delve into it.

Love / Hate Sounds Great - HDMI pass-through issues.
HDMI passthrough issues out of the blue,..have forced 2 factory resets do far.
I believe disabling ARC and CEC have corrected the issue but feature is lost.

On screen menu very slow response.time.

On screen display of program sound settings shows randomly.

Always Yamaha for me!
This was the next logical step in my home entertainment experience. My fourth Yamaha surround sound receiver, and it fills two very important upgrades; 4k HDMI switching, and built-in phono preamp. I'm still exploring the many new features in the RX-V6A, but the initial setup was fast and intuitive to get me past square one quickly.

Product support just passes the buck.
I wish I could've had more experience with this receiver.
I had an issue with the YPAO. It kept erroring out when I was trying optimize the speaker settings.
When I contacted Yamaha support, they simply advised me to take the unit to an authorized service center.
With support like that, I decided to return the receiver for a refund instead.

One great receiver
I used this receiver as a 9.2.2 surround sound system. I wish I could use front presence and surround back at the same time.

Overall very good, product, but some functions not working
Bought it to pair with new Denon turntable, phono jack only emitted loud distortion. Music cast wouldn't set up despite repeated attempts. Great sound and am overall pleased, just disappointed that not all functions are working.

Awesome home theater system
I had a Denon home theater before this one. I thought I was getting good customer service there and why I was wrong. Yamaha knows exactly how to guide you to the best time possible from your system. Their customer service is amazing and they actually tell you what settings you need on subwoofers and speakers. I would buy this over and over again.
