Summary: Item came in 5 days and was a serious upgrade to my other old AV unit. Your rear speakers have to be wireed directly to the unit or they will not sound right. All in all Yamhaw with Dolby Labs invented the home theater system.
Summary: I ordered this system and received an upgraded one, which was 840 watts instead of what ever this receiver is...this thing is a beast, and I still have not been able to turn it up all the way because it is so loud
Summary: Highly recommended. If you're looking for a budget receiver to handle your multiple HDMI devices this is the one.
Pros: Although considered refurb, mine came packaged like new. Nothing to indicate it wasn't brand new. Great features for $ - 4 HDMI, 3D support, HD up conversion, supports lossless audio. I got this receiver to replace an excellent but aging Harman/Kardon AVR 245. This amp is not leading edge but its...
Cons: Can be finicky with different HDMI inputs (i get flashes and delays switching to my Apple TV input for example). PS3 does work but must be in LPCM mode to get lossless audio for BluRay (receiver never indicates TrueHD or Master Audio). Tricky firmware upgrade process that requires optical audio a...
Summary: Works great so far! Newegg had it to me under 2 days even with free shipping!!!! Thanks Newegg!!!!
Pros: Works well with my Media center (PBO) & Harmony remote. My media center plays many different video and audio formats. This receiver plays them all with no problem. No more searching for the right formatted video so that the surround sound will work! Everything goes through the receiver to a singl...
Cons: Is a little bit deeper then my old Sony receiver makes the cabinet a bit tighter.
Summary: I bought this to replace an Onkyo TX-SR607 so I could pass through 3D video while retaining HD audio decoding. I chose the Yamaha over the SR608 because this is cheaper and provides exactly what I needed.
Pros: HDMI 1.4 for 3D passthrough on a relatively cheap receiver Smaller and lighter than most other comparable units Good remote
Cons: Connecting bare speaker wire can be a pain (see below)
Summary: for a great reliable unit that is easy to set up and use and does all the basics with ease this 567 is highly recomended.as always newegg was quick on shipping and very good price
Pros: this yamaha 567 was bought as an upgrade from a previous model with no hdmi connections.this unit eliminated about 6-7 connections that were previously component to one cable per component and with the pass through feature all is great. typical smooth yamaha sound on music and movies rock through...
Cons: the only cons i can think of is this unit has no pre-outs for bi amping with additional power nor does it have a 120 plug on rear for adding other amps but hey i didn't expect this at this price point.
