Yamaha RX-V663

22 October 2008
  • Summary: The Yamaha RX-V663 sounds great, but it's tough to recommend with its paltry HDMI connectivity, poor upconversion quality, and other design quirks.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality; onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding; Sirius- and XM-ready; control iPod onscreen using USB port; two switched AC outlets.
  • Cons: Only two HDMI inputs, while competing models offers offer three or more; analog upconversion limited to 480p; poor upconversion quality; autosetup gave us an inaccurate warning; frustrating rear panel layout.

Perinteitä vaalien

  • Pros: Hyvä kaukosäädin, Runsaat analogiset liitännät, Levysoitinliitäntä
  • Cons: Epätarkka asetusmikrofoni, Vain kaksi hdmi-tuloa, Ei videoskaalainta

Yamaha RX-V663

28 August 2008
  • Conclusion: Le Yamaha RX-V663 est l’un des amplificateurs Home Cinéma équipés de décodeurs audio haute définition les moins chers du marché actuellement. Il permet donc, sans se ruiner, de goûter à la richesse des bandes-son Dolby TrueHD et DTS‑HD . Malgré tout, l’équipement est un peu succinct par rapport à la concurrence. Ceci dit, le décodage est plutôt précis et raffiné, et les étages de puissances affichent une belle énergie.
  • Pros: HDMI 1.3, Décodeur HD, Qualité et rendu sonore, Transcodage vidéo vers HDMI, Paramétrage automatique efficace
  • Cons: Peu d’entrées HDMI, Pas de gestion du CEC, Pas d’égalisation du caisson, Pas de circuit de désentrelacement
