    Pros: Pretty good bang for the buck; clean sound; very good quality for home theater
    Cons: Low on power; too many variables in terms of sound fields and other adjustments

    Summary: I bought the 5660 over a comparably priced Sony on the salesman's recommendation. I have it set up in a 5.1 format with pretty decent Klipsch speakers in a large (28x18) room. I'm pleased with it for home theater (although mildly disappointed with the ... read more

  • Hear Clearly Now with Yamaha's HTR-5660

    Pros: Clear Clean Crisp, excellent separation with plenty of power.
    Cons: Average to Poor manual. Could use more cooling under load.

    Summary: After much debate and tons of research we replaced a Sony DB-940 with a Yamaha HTR-5660. While playing the music loud through my Sony the output finals gave way. A suitable replacement, rather than repair, had to be made and for a comparable price. As a ... read more

    Pros: Low THD. Lots of hookups for all your electronics. Decent power.
    Cons: Sound reproduction not as crisp or sharp as could be.

    Summary: I purchased this receiver last week from Best Buy. It was used to update my Harmon Kardon. The Yamaha has component inputs and outputs as well as optical sound inputs and outputs. My Harmon Kardon did not. The remote control is well laid out and allo ... read more

    Pros: FM Reception, 6 channel surround, clean sound, RMS power.
    Cons: No record player inputs.

    Summary: I was skeptical about this receiver because it is only 85 watts X6, but it turns out that it is more than enough power. I replaced a 100wX5 Pioneer receiver, and the Yamaha definitely goes louder and distorts less at high volume. My complaint is that ... read more

    Pros: Sound quality; hook-ups; price (Found a return at Bestbuy for $369);
    Cons: No onscreen menus - not a big deal; lack of a record player connection.

    Summary: Long time user of Sony and Pioneer receivers. Replaced a Pioneer VSX 850s with this unit. Significant improvement in sound quality. Dolby Digital from both DVD's and Directv now sounds like I am at the theater. However, this unit really shines ... read more

    Pros: Crisp, steady power
    Cons: Moderate power

    Summary: This unit is not the thunderous Sony ES, but does impress all who are lucky enough to hear it's 6.1 channel performance with "The Matrix". For less than $500, good luck finding a better deal. ... read more
