Yamaha are well known for their high quality audio visual products and the RX-A1030 certainly doesn't disappoint.  It's a 7.2 channel receiver, with enough inputs and outputs to handle all but the very biggest home AV setups.  As you would expect, it handles Dolby and DTS surround processing with ease, and can upscale your video to full HD or 4K, and passes through 3D signals to boot. It's also simple to get a great sound specific to your room with Yamaha's built in YPAO system calibration.  It will even allow you to have one source in one room and a different source in a second room, which can be extremely useful.

The receiver is also very well placed to play your digital media, supporting a range of formats including MP3, WMA and FLAC. It's also easy to include your iPod/iPhone either by using the USB connection (which will also charge your device), or using the supported Airplay function.  Android users can share their content using MHL.  The unit can also connect to your network, allowing you to play stored media via DLNA, or to use Napster or Spotify Connect services or the vTuner internet radio.  There's also an easy to use app to control your receiver using Apple and Android devices.

Overall, we'd have to say sound performance is good, with meaty, powerful bass balance with clear, precise treble.  Add in it's network performance and wide range of features and you have a great all-rounder of a receiver at an affordable price.
