  • The remote I found a bit hard to get used to but it's almost like any other receiver that you purchase you have to go through and learn everything again
  • I will tell you though that getting used to this remote won't take you vary long especially if you have any experience with the new models that are now outs there

      A cousin of mine recently got a used Yamaha HTR-5280, and as far as I’ve been able to tell Yamaha makes some pretty good receivers at least from the sound that I have heard so far. While this model is older and doesn’t support HDMI or anything of that sort. But if you are on a budget and don’t have some fancy speakers and s fancy TV but you want some pretty good sound then this would be a great unit to look at if you want surround sound without dropping a whole lot of money, and than buying new speakers to make sure that it work to its fullest.

      This has a lot of different sound stages for instance things such as concert hall, and


      rock. This basically attempts to make whatever music you are listening to sound more as if you where there. It does a pretty good job of this to. It sounds pretty good, now of course it’s nothing compared to say the Yamaha 663 which provides 7.2 and accepts the new high def audio signals that you can get.

      This unit offers 100 watts by 5 which I’ll tell you will probably be more than you need if you are on this much of a budget that you need to buy a cheaper receiver like this. If you have a large room you are just much better off investing in a much larger system that will actually be able to fill the room with sound otherwise your ...


      • just wasting money because you will have to invest in better stuff again. Don’t go from point A to B to C to D, etc. Go from Points A to E and you will save yourself quite a bit of money and take it firsthand you really do. I waster a lot of money upgrading over and over again.

        The remote I found a bit hard to get used to but it’s almost like any other receiver that you purchase you have to go through and learn everything again. Menus are run differently and everything seems to be hiding in a new place. I will tell you though that getting used to this remote won’t take you vary long especially if you have any experience with

        the new models that are now outs there.

        Another cool thing that many receivers have now a days is if you plugged headphones into the receiver then nothing is passed to the speakers therefore you can listen t stuff when other people are trying to sleep.

        My suggestin only and I mean only buy this thing if you already have speakers and you are on a really tight budget. Assuming that you can even find one of these somewhere for use. Which in all honesty I doubt, but if you are on a tight budget then this will be a great deal for you get some cheap surround sound pumping through your house hold. If I were you though I would save money and look elsewhere
