Great Product Easy Set Up,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Yamaha RX-V377 5.1-Channel A/V Home Theater Receiver (Electronics)
I haven't purchased a receiver in some time and noticed the V377 was the same price as the V375... so why not, right? Comes with the surround sound via front speakers which was pretty ideal considering that's how I was going to utilize the speakers. It sounds great, easy to set up and seamlessly transitions from input to input. I bought this along with Energy Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System (Set of Six, Black) (Set of Six, Black) and I really can't be happier.
Only thing that was annoying between the speakers and the Receiver is the sub woofer input. On the receiver it only has one slot for an RCA cable, the speakers however have left and right. Just needed to buy a RCA cable splitter ($4) and problem was fixed.

The issue here with 1 sub pre-out is all you need is 1(unless an AVR has separate subwoofer controls...which you aren't getting till $1000+). The two on your subwoofer internally combine anyway...so you wasted $4.

Good to know, the $4 was worth the peace of mind that I felt like I was fully utilizing the plugs.

I just bought this same setup and have been dying to find out how it sounds. Ive been away for work.
What did you do for the speaker break in period?

Speaker break in is largely a myth. So don't worry about it.

Sorry I forgot to respond. Not really sure about the speaker break in but they are remarkable especially in surround sound which I recently reconfigured to make it work. Definitely a big difference between true surround sound speakers and placing them in the front.

Anyway you can explain this a little better? I was thinking about getting the same setup and am fairly new to this arena.

Hey Eugene could you tell me exactly which RCA splitter you needed? Was it male-male, male-female, or female-female? If you could include a link that would be awesome.
