Nothing on the bottom, some light paper on top, of a heavy item. The outside of the box was beat up some. I am letting it warm up a few hours before I try it out. The ironic thing is the Yamaha box even said fragile.
might make you feel better that they shipped my friend's in the original yamaha box
Mine came poorly packaged as well, with some damage to the corner of the Yamaha box. After about 3 hours of disconnecting my old Onkyo and connecting this one, I fired everything up to see a "USB OVERLOADED" error, despite not having connected anything to USB. 36 minutes on hold for Yamaha so they could spend 1 minute determining that it is a hardware error due to physical damage and suggest I return it.
Luckily they're still in stock and Amazon is shipping a new one, hopefully with a little padding.
Regardless, this is a great deal and I can't wait to get it working. Also, I did hook up a wireless N gaming adapter and it looks like it's online, so hopefully that means I can stream MOG to it.
Very strange they are wasting time and money by burning CDs and sending it to people that request the firmware, rather than just posting it to their web site.
(ie, take a look at one of those pics of the CD they sent one guy, it is hand burned with the label hand written)
