We rated this 8.7 out of 10 because we felt like there was too much noise coming from when changing channels on our remote control as well as some other minor issues with button placement but overall, I would recommend buying the Yamaha RX-A4A if you are new or have never owned an audio system before – especially since they offer automatic speaker tuning which will make your life easier while setting up your surround sound speakers around your room.
