Mixed feeling
I liked the clean and natural sound of this receiver. Also sound bubble created while watching a movie is awesome. I mean i can hear better sound movement compared to my older 2017 receiver.
However after finding 2.1 hdmi bug in Nov 2020, no-one is commenting if this will be fixed via firmware upgrade while wirting this review in Feb 2021.Thats not being transparent and holding customers.

Very nice mid-level AVR!
Just received my Yamaha RX-V6A today. Setup was very easy after hooking up everything it went straight to a firmware update took about 20 minutes. I'm still running though this very nice looking AVR! I have it setup in a 5.1 set for now will do 7.2 very soon. Now for as how it performs, Flawlessly no issues whatsoever it is a very detailed sounding AVR. The new Display is welcomed, very easy to read from my sitting area of 10ft away from my audio rack. You can turn off the front display. World Wide Stereo shipped it out and received it without any issues. Customer service was outstanding, Customer service specialist, Ira Segall, answered all my questions plus was very Professional and courteous. I do recommend World Wide Stereo and of course Yamaha!

I am really happy with my choice
The RX V6A is replacing my 10 year old receiver, and I am happy I decided to go back to a Yamaha unit. I am just blown away with the quality and look of this unit.

Will this display the track playing the way my TSR-7850 does? The display looks small
A shopper on Oct 11, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The RX-V6 will display track playing like the 7850. The display is slightly smaller, however.
How many of the hdmi inputs are 2.1 supporting 4k@120hz?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The preliminary specifications provided by Yamaha for this new model do not specify HDMI 2.1. However, all 7 HDMI inputs are specified to support 4K/60Hz and HDMI inputs 1, 2, and 3 support 8K/60Hz.
