The Yamaha RX-V995 is a 5-channel Home Theater Receiver, with 100 watts of power delivered to each of the unit’s channels. featuring Yamahas Digital Sound Field Processing, Cinema DSP, and Tri-Field Processing (as well as standard Dolby Surround Pro Logic and Dolby Digital decoding and DTS decoding). The Dolby Digital and DTS systems are discrete, with six channels, five of which are full frequency, while the last is low frequency only. ... PROS: (1) Advanced remote control design offers 13 programmable macro buttons. (2) Offers excellent sound quality when paired with suitable speakers. (3) Plenty of audio settings to be tweaked and adjusted. (4) Audio setting presets tailored to sound like specific venues (Roxy Theater in Los Angeles, Village Gate in New York, Anaheim Stadium) add a unique flair to music. (5) On-screen speaker test mode makes speaker placement an easier process. ... CONS: (1) Almost completely outdated at this point--doesnt have a single HDMI port. (2) Fairly weighty at 31lbs.

5 Star Review   By member CrickHop - Aug 28, 2002   

Strengths: Beautiful "natural" sound. Excellent both as a home theatre component and stereo. Individual intruments sound the way they should sound. Powerful output and no noise distortion that I can hear.

Weakness: Big complicated remote...Too many buttons...Something digital with just a few buttons and just as many choices would be nicer.

If you plan to use your receiver for both home theatre and music, look no further. The sound reproduction is amazing! If you're listening to a piano performance (or trumpet, or sax, or guitar), you feel like you're listening to the real thing right in the room. I paired this receiver with Phase Tech speakers and have never been disappointed. Although the remote is a bit much, the buttons on the receiver are useful and well thought out. I plan to keep this receiver for the rest of my life.
