What customers say about "Key Specs"
Yamaha RX-A1060 7.2 Channel Network Aventage AV Receiver
  • A little over priced but still has very good quality, plenty of options and good watt per channel.
  • The sound quality and channel separation is excellent. The video pass through is clear, and somehow better than my old Pioneer.
  • I'm running full size Martin Logan Motion 40s plus matching center channel and surrounds and in a medium size room this thing can handle it.
  • The 2 subwoofer outputs plus the Center Channel pre-out are fantastic because I use 2 ground shaking powered subwoofers plus a large Center Channel with an active powered subwoofer in my home theater.
  • Great features, easy to operate, and sounds awesome with power to spare!
  • The only short coming is it does not have an extend speaker setting. This is available on the Pioneer model.
Yamaha RX-A1070 AVENTAGE Audio & Video Component Receiver, Black
  • The decoding for movies has been amazing with a lot of detail and the voice of the center channel sounds plenty loud.
  • From my testing have accepted the lowest signal I could possibly through at it which is 480i all the way to 4K Native with HDR support and the two Component inputs accept signals from 480i to 1080i which is awesome.
  • Awesome receiver , great sound , great 4k.
  • Because the unit has only 7 discreet amplifier channels, even though it allows 9 speakers (plus 2 subwoofers) to be connected, you have to manually select whether sound is output from top Atmos speakers or from the back surround speakers. It can't output to both simultaneously.
  • Another thing I noticed is that certain music seems to have quite a bit of distortion and muddy at medium volume and gets worse.

What customers say about "Features"
Yamaha RX-A1060 7.2 Channel Network Aventage AV Receiver
  • Paired with the simple to use app for your phone or tablet, you can control your whole system with it. I added the AV Controller app as well so I can control sound details for the watching of movies in the theater section of our house.
  • The whole system for music is typically controlled by by both the Yamaha AV Controller app and the Musiccast app (which links any/all the speakers and sets their volume independently).
  • Great sound and features. Very good on screen user interface. App is easy to use and better than the remote.
  • The MusicCast system provides one very easy multi-room configurations imaginable.
  • This receiver offers multiple DSP surround sound decoders, multi-room playback, built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

  • The iPhone and iPad apps available for free from Yamaha, AV Controller and MusicCast, make it easy to control all aspects of the receiver.
  • As for AirPlay, it is a snap to stream anything right from your iPhone, the receiver will turn on automatically and you can control the sound using the volume buttons or slider from right within Apple Music or Spotify.
  • We downloaded the Yamaha app on my smartphone, and now I can control all functions from there, plus it really allows for easy playback of my downloaded music from my device over the receiver- it really sounds great.
  • My only complaint is that to get the best sound with audio sources requires using pure direct setting, which can only be accessed from the Yamaha remote, not the app. But it does sound fantastic.
  • Zone switching not functioning as aspected .Outside two zone plus inside two speaker are working when I switch to zone 2 I don’t need inside speakers to work when I am sitting outside.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Yamaha RX-A1060 7.2 Channel Network Aventage AV Receiver
  • Plenty of HDMI inputs and outputs.
  • I liked the idea of two way Bluetooth, brilliant idea. You can pair your wireless Bluetooth headphones to listen FROM it, instead of a cord or alternatively, stream audio from your phone to it, as a source.
  • Pandora internet radio works great, wifi signal remains strong and Bluetooth.
  • The unit even has Bluetooth that I use for headphones and a bathroom speaker.
  • The setup was easy and I did not have Bluetooth previously on the old unit.
