Yamaha TSR-5810 is a high-level network AV receiver that can become the basis of every home theater. It’s a 7.2-channel device with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, which are able to improve not only sound but a picture quality. It can easily connect the Android and Apple devices.
The visual Yamaha TSR-5810 review shows me that the unit has relatively modest parameters (17.1 x 12.9 x 6.4 inches). The only thing that confuses me is a pretty impressive weight (17.9 pounds). My thin shelves are not able to withstand the pressure. The design, in general, looks classically, but the abundance of buttons and connectors on the front panel are weird-looking. Black color makes the corps very presentable, as well as the division into matte and glossy parts.
Bright illumination on a built-in clock allows seeing all the necessary information, even on the sunny day. The sleep timer also performs its task perfectly. 40 preset FM/AM stations and Internet radio are additional entertainers. The Wi-Fi has a good coverage, but from outside the house, the signal is getting weaker. It is easy to control the receiver with the Alexa service. The Bluetooth loses connection when I get about 8 ft away from the receiver.
The Apple AirPlay and Spotify Connect show me all the streaming audio possibilities and present the opportunity to enjoy the music in different modes. I can adapt the sound to the track’s style (rock, classic, pop) and feel myself like at a concert. The user’s interface isn’t easy to figure out. With the help of a controller app, I have an opportunity to change the volume, FM stations and tracks from different rooms.
The sound quality is really awesome. The receiver presents to me the world of true surround sound. I can hear all the components of the song and each musical instrument. The highest volume is greatly heard on the street and produces the sound without interruptions. I’m sure that its future owner will definitely want to arrange a rock concert at maximum volume because the basses are wonderful.
Among the great Yamaha TSR-5810 specs, the device has 4 HDMI inputs and 1 output and such a number are enough for everyday usage. All of them have a great sensitivity. I have only 1 problem with 4 available AV inputs: 2 of them don’t work properly and I can’t do anything to fix the problem. Perhaps, the reason is a defect in the assembly.
The setting process is very easy and will be understandable even for those people, who have never been the receiver owners. The on-screen guide includes a detailed description of each step and manipulation. The screen shut down only once. Such a surprise doesn’t make me feel uncomfortable or lose the whole setting progress. The YPAO also is perceived as a great helper that performs the system’s optimization quick and easy.
The Yamaha TSR-5810 is a great average AV receiver. Of course, there can be some problems, but they don’t have a bad influence on the device’s functionality. The great sound and the plenty of options make the device a great choice!
