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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
