Summary: This is the second Yamaha receiver I've purchased; the last one (analog) lasted for twenty years without fail. Overall, the quality of this receiver meets or exceeds the quality one can expect from Yamaha video/audio products. Some of the audio output functions (surround sound, dolby, stereo, direct, etc.) can initially be a bit confusing, but can be relativel quickly learned.
Summary: The setup is a breeze with the onscreen menu. The price is just right for a entry level 3-D ready receiver that has all your audio needs. The remote is laid out that anyone in the household can operate all the functions. When adjusting the volume you have to look at the face of receiver to see the level for there is no onscreen for this, only the setup has onscreen function. Overall this is a good receiver for a home entertainment system.
Solid receiver - 3D pass thru works with firmware upgrade

Summary: I purchased this over a year now, along with Klipsch HD 500 for a small room home theater surround sound. The receiver is solid overall. Nice sound system, 4 input HDMI sources which are good enough for me. Can turn off the 2 surround in 7.1 for 5.1 setup. The main HDMI source is from my older, PS2 backward compatible PS3 console. Other input including from Dish Network DVR, an HDTV with net apps, and a DVD player.
Summary: I recently setup a surround sound system for my parents. I got the Yamaha RX-V567BL as a bundle through Amazon with a Klipsch HD 500 surround sound speaker package. I was more interested in the Klipsch speakers than the receiver, but since they would need one anyway, getting the Yamaha for basically free was a deal you can't pass up. I personally prefer Denon receivers, but have also had Pioneer and Sony ones in the past.
Summary: I wanted to upgrade my HT system so I bought this. But when I plugged in the PS3 via the HDMI to the yamaha receiver, the video on the yamaha would flicker on and off every now and then. Switched HDMI cables and does the same thing. I googled PS3 and seems like theres some sort of hand shake problem. Meaning that the PS3 is unable to communicate with the receiver through the HDMI. Tried my directv to the yamaha's HDMI and it works.
Summary: Seit gestern besitze ich den Yamaha RX V 567 als Zweitgerät, um die "nicht vorhandenen" Lautsprecher meines Samsung PS50C650 zu ersetzen. Ein weiterer Kaufgrund was, dass ich bereits eine Yamaha iPod Dockingstation besitze und diese somit weiterverwenden kann. Das Gerät ist optisch durchwegs ansprechend und technisch genügt es meinen Ansprüchen.
Summary: Ich habe mir den Receiver wegen der Möglichkeit zugelegt, im Standby Video- und Audio-Signale durchschleifen zu können und das bei geringem Stromverbrauch. Da der Yamaha der einzige mir bekannte Receiver war, der diese Anforderung erfüllt, hat er das Rennen gemacht. Von der Ausstattung her hätte ich eher zu einem Pioneer (920 oder 1020) tendiert, diese können das jedoch leider nicht.
