Customer Reviews for Yamaha RX-V6 7.2-Channel AV Receiver with 8K HDMI and MusicCast
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.
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.
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.
