    This does almost everything that I had hoped with only a few cons, not enough to lose a complete star. Basically, the setup went very easily. Although I have a wireless network I purchased a network extender that had an ethernet port and simply plugged it in behind the rx-v477 and ran the cable. It instantly found my network without a problem. Hooking up the HDMI — blue ray, cable box, ps3, xbox360, roku, apptv and output to a new Samsung 3D HDTV was as simple a process as typing it was. I also had an old laserdisc and an older VCR and both of those hooked up to the composite inputs without problem. So with eight devices hooked up I began to explore the receiver’s capabilities.

    The sound fields are very nice and give a believable sound. The Dolby movie modes are particularly crisp as compared to an older receiver I upgraded from with almost a visible surround field if you close your eyes. The hall modes with echo effects seemed as good as any I have heard but are just not for me. However, I did find that the Jazz Hall effect did improve the sound of various music selections. At any point a press of the “straight” button returns you to immediate listening to the sound as the external device presented it to the amp. And if you are real, real, real picky the “direct” button turns the sound straight but also cuts off all other electronics but those related to the sound field itself which the directions say results in a purer sound. I have yet to discern a difference but maybe if your ears are younger than 60+ years you will be awed.

    The HDMI supports the ARC or Audio Return Channel protocol in the latest 1.4 HDMI standard. Basically this means that if you are watching TV through your TV’s built-in tuner (not through a cable box) or if you have a Smart TV that supports apps — you do not need an optical, digital cable to get the sound from your TV to this amp. Instead the amp will take sound and control codes from the HDMI cable plugged into the TV IF YOUR TV HAS A HMDI PORT LABELED ARC. I have a Samsung TV and that uses this very nicely with one problem. Some TVs send control codes to the amplifier beyond ARC but ARC is a subset of HDMI Control. What does this mean? Well if I have HDMI control set to on in the 477’s configuration that means I have ARC turned on and I can also do things such as control the 477’s volume with the TV’s remote. However a problem arose in that the Samsung TV sends a control signal automatically on first turn-on of the TV to the amp to switch to the ARC audio. But if you are using a cable box it switches thus to an empty audio input and you lose sound. If you then manually switch back to the cable box’s HDMI that setting remains for the rest of the session. But there is no way my wife or others in the house would want to do that. My solution was simply to turn off HDMI control which means no ARC or other HDMI control usually. So I have a universal remote which anyway runs the volume of the amp so no loss at all when watching cable TV. Then, when I do want to run an application on my Smart TV or to watch a TV channel in the decoded straight cable I just have two quick menu choices to turn HDMI Control back on and switch to the ARC (which defaults to AV4 but can be set to other AV inputs if your use 4). I mention this because it did take a support call to Yamaha as to why my TV was switching audio input. NOT a big deal at all and I have dwelled on it here simply to help anyone else who might have a Samsung TV hooked to this or any TV that is sending input switching via HDMI Control. (By the way I was very impressed with Yamaha’s support center).

    The receiver has a complete interface to IOS (iPod and iPad) music and sound. You can do it in two ways. You can plug any USB cable from your iDevice into the front of the receiver (a USB port). This is if you do not set up the network connection, The best way is that the receiver supports Airplay. So if your iPod or iPhone or iPad are on thee same network as you RX-477 just go to Airplay (in the latest IOS just go to the Notifications Center and turn on Airplay) and it automatically sees the receiver and your music plays along with the song title and other information on the front display of the receiver and even sent as a screen of information to a connected TV. There are other ways for Android and PC connectivity but I cannot comment much as I did not try those.

    The 477 also features a complete Network Radio if you hook to the Internet. On the one hand it is good enough that I decided not to bother hooking up the AM/FM antennas. On the other hand the Network Radio does have one very serious flaw — no Search feature. So, for example, I love a podcaset called Listen to the Magic. If you go to the Entertainment category in Podcasts you wind up with 350 screens! Even though you can scroll ten screens at a time that is still a heck of a lot of scrolling to do. It’s a one time task as you can…

    UPDATE January 2016:
    This unit is a little over a year old now and keeps shutting off. While it is still under warranty, I am disappointed that I have to deal with that hassle now. I thought I’d warn everyone else that this model has been discontinued by the manufacturer and I can no longer recommend it, sorry.

    I replaced a 10-year-old high end Onkyo home theater receiver with this after a LOT of research. I am very happy with it so far – great sound and features, with lots of smart features hidden inside (well, they are explained in the 90 page user manual, which may take you a while to get through….) The first unit I received had a non-functioning speaker terminal which is a concern re: build quality, but the second one seems to be in good shape. Like Onkyo, Yamaha has a 2-year warranty which provides some reassurance. RE PRICING…. this unit goes on sale a LOT at your local Big Box electronics retailer with the yellow sign, and Amazon matches that price… look for it in the $300 range and I’m guessing we might see some specials around $250 as the holidays approach. At those prices, it’s a screaming deal for a receiver this powerful (it powers my 5 speakers plus subwoofer very well).

    Pro’s:
    – Minimalist design — not a lot of flashing lights and gimmicks – just a good clean receiver
    – Great sound, good power, variety of sound processing options
    – Ethernet connectivity (no wireless) and once you connect to your network, you can airplay from your iPhone or you can access DLNA networked files from your computers
    – HDMI pass-through even when it’s off, so if you prefer to use your TV speakers instead of surround sound to watch the news, it’s easy… the signal goes from your cable box to your Yamaha even if it’s off, then on to your TV and feeds the speakers there. Also you can change inputs (HDMI 1 to 2 for example) even when the unit is off, great for programming a universal remote on more complex systems to ensure inputs are set correctly for different activities
    – Online firmware updates, though it would be nice if it prompted you to update… you have to go looking for them under settings.
    – Audio in and USB plugs in the front for connecting your iphone or other music device
    – LOTS of HDMI inputs in the back, and also there’s a optical digital input and component video etc… I have a pretty complex system and even after hooking up everything I have lots of inputs left over.
    – System “makes sense”… harder to quantify, but I didn’t have to spend a lot of time changing settings… the system seemed to recognize I had plugged my Sonos amp into AV 1 optical and I didn’t have to set that up.
    – Excellent video and audio processing

    Con’s:
    – No HDMI in on the front panel (more expensive receiver options have this)… useful if you sometimes want to hook up a laptop or other portable video device without going around to the back of the unit
    – Oh gosh, that remote… truly horrible with lots of buttons, like all other systems I’ve ever used. I paired mine with a Harmony Ultimate remote and love it.
    – The terminals for the speakers are difficult to access and connect… that took me longer than any other part of the hookup. I’m not a fan of this type of connector though all the higher-end audio seems to have it? But given you only need to do this once, not a big deal.
    – On screen menus for set up etc look like Atari or Apple circa 1983. Maybe TRS-80.

    Overall at this price I’m very happy with this receiver.

    Hope this helps, and feel free to ask questions in the comments below and I’ll do my best to answer them.

    Only had this receiver for one week now. This receiver has awesome sound and setup is pretty simple. It has an easy on screen minue and wifi was simple to setup. I like the fack that you can set the max volume and change the way the volume is displayed on the tv screen. It has plenty of power to drive high quality speakers. This receiver has as good a sound quality as some recevers cousting twice as much. It also has a pretty decent app for your phone or pad. Iwould buy this receiver again.
