Summary: I have owned this receiver for about 2 years now and I still love it. It's a pretty fantastic mid-range receiver. It doesn't have all of the bells and whistles as some of the higher end receivers, but it's easy to use and provides plenty of power for my home audio system. PROS: Supports ARC (audio return channel): This is one of my favorite features. It allows you to use a single (hdmi) cable to send audio to and receive audio from your device.
Summary: This receiver is well built, well conceived, and everything works. No handshake issues at all! The pass-through works great and you can even change the input while the unit is "off". YPAO does not impress compared to Audessey, but with hand-tweaking I got everything to sound good. Their dynamic EQ / volume, etc works quite well. Easy enough to give to my dad.
Summary: Some people are giving this receiver a bad rap. All I can say is wow!!!This is the cleanest sounding low power receiver at 105 watts per 5 channels that I have ever heard. I replaced my Sony 6.1 surround Receiver with this Yamaha because I wanted a future proof Receiver with H.D.M.I. ports, digital coax, and optical. This Receiver kicks some butt. It has 4 H.D.M.I. ports and one for output to your High-Def T.V., also 2 digital coax and 2 optical ports as well.
Summary: My 13-year old top of the line Kenwood 5.1 receiver died last month. I was looking for an inexpensive replacement with home theater capabilities adequate for a small (10x16)room. After considering a Sony, Onkyo, Pioneer (not really), and Denon. I selected this Yamaha model because it wasn't the cheapest model and Amazon had it on special for $229.
Summary: I bought this from another dealer as B-stock (refurbished) from the factory. It's been working perfectly for me for about three months now. The sound quality is excellent. It has plenty of power (volume) for my living room. I really like having 4 HDMI inputs. I'm running a pair of old mid-1980's Cerwin-Vega 10" woofer, 6" mid, + tweeter floor stacks (still awesome speakers) for left and right front, set of Sony 4" back channels, and 6" Sony center.
Summary: I got this for a customer a few weeks ago. It does as it says it does but I'm not too thrilled with the "ease of use." I loved the older series (59, 61, 63) because of how easy it was to choose between inputs. This one is more complicated to send audio and video through diff inputs. I'll give you an example. When I am watching TV (HDMI 1) and want to listen to FM radio at the same time..
Summary: I was using a JVC RX 888. It put out great sounds but it was pre HDMI. The Yamaha, has several HDMI slots and I now run my Blu ray and TV through it. It took a little while to figure things out but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty simple. After using it the first evening, I turned it on the next day expecting to hear great sound only to have no sound. The only thing I did the night before was turn it off.
Summary: I bought this receiver based on other reviews of Yamaha receivers. I chose this over Samsung's current 5.1 and 7.1 receiver, because the Samsung units had lackluster reviews. I was curious about the Samsung receiver line because our television is a Samsung LED. I'm thrilled with the RX-V467. First, the quality is topnotch, which is something you can always expect from Yamaha gear. It's solidly built and feels that way.
Summary: Viele der angebotenen DSP-Modi sind meiner Meinung nach überflüssig, da insbesondere die Audio-Modi trotz der angeblich erfolgten vor-Ort-Einmessung der jeweiligen Säle dünn und blechern klingen (vermutlich auch mit hochwertigeren Boxen). Ich bevorzuge im Audio-Modus des 467 das/den Dolby Pro Logic II (über FB-Taste "Sur. Decode") und bin voll und ganz zufrieden. Selbst mit meinem Kleinstsystem 5.1 Teufel Kompakt 30 macht das Musikhören Freude.
