Summary: I'm writing this review to express my disappointment with the direction Yamaha has taken with their newer AV receivers. I have always owned Yamaha receivers since roughly 1980, and up till now have been a loyal fan. I currently own an RX-Z9, an HTR-5940, and unfortunately, an RX-V663.
Summary: Wanted a 7.1 Channel Receiver with the new HD lossless sound to replace my Yamaha HTR-5750 and to go with a new Panasonic Blu-ray player. Read too many reviews of the Onkyo 606 heating up, so didn't even bother. Tried the Yamaha RX-V663.
