  • Durability:

Pros:Outstanding sound and power, THX Select 2, all the decoders you would want

Cons:Automatic calibration not as accurate as it could be, remote is somewhat confusing.

The Bottom Line: Highly recommended HT receiver for its sound quality and video upscaling, HDMI.


This is my second Yamaha receiver and I am impressed by the power and sound quality of the RX-V2600. Video up scaling feature to 1080i was the main reason we bought this unit. We almost bought the RX-V2700 for 1080P upscale but our screen does not support it and the difference in price between the two can be quite big. The RX-V2600 delivers outstanding sound with its numerous decoders and THX Select 2 is a must for accurate movie audio play back. We have it hooked up in a 6.1 speaker configuration (1 in-wall back surround) including a Velodyne DPS-12 sub. All our HT electronics are controlled by a Logitech Harmony universal remote to limit the number of remotes needed to control all the units and we do not use zone 2 and 3 feature on the Yamaha so that eliminates the negatives one reviewer posted. Our previous receiver was a Yamaha HTR-5890 that seemed to run very hot after a couple hours but the RX-V2600 does not run as hot so we feel safer to have it running for extended periods of time behind a glass door. Yamaha delivers in unsurpassed quality sound reproduction from any source. Good strong speakers are a must even if you do not listen to music or movies at high levels. Setup was fairly easy using the microphone (YPAO) and gave us a good starting point but we did have to manually configure some sound and video settings following the setup process to fine tune.
