Summary: Got this to replace my Yamaha HTR-5635 from 2003. Provides great sound, good video processing and a multitude of settings to dial it in.. Can easily drive 7 speakers and 2 powered subs. Yamaha once again proves they are second to none when it comes to receivers...
Summary: This unit works really well. I paired it with the Onkyo 7.1 speakers and it works great. The only complaint I have is that the default setting is Audio 1, even though I have nothing connected to that. It senses when the connection powers up, but if its hooked to the computer like mine is, in between screens on booting it falls back on the Audio 1 setting, and I have to change it to the HDMI 1 setting that my computer is connected to.
Summary: This is a good receiver, and can be used in many ways. I find Yamaha to be a bit complicated to use, compared to my Denon receiver but it is definitely a good high quality receiver. For either 5.1 or 7.1 home theater or music listening. I have this hooked up to my 5.1 system with it bi-amped to my B&W floor standing speakers. The reason I decided to go with was it would power lower ohm speakers. My speakers are older and that was something I needed.
Summary: I really like this system. But sure could have used some better instructions on how to use it to its fullest. Very little instruction on how to use the remote control and it's settings as to get optimon performance. The remote control has more buttons than this old man can figure out. After a year I think I have it going for me. At least I know where I like it set for music and where I like it set for movies. I'm really enjoying it and would recommend it to others.
Summary: After a lot of searching I decided to buy the Yamaha RX-V667 . It was priced right and the reviews spoke about it's sound quality. It does sound better than my older Sherwood HT amp . Good value for the price.
Summary: Using it with Onko speakers and it sounds great. Connects to my wired network well but the program menu is lacking. The remote menu on a network computer is mostly useless. Remote is way too complicated and menus are not very well arranged. I would think that with so many years behind them Yamaha would have a better program staff. For such a good sound the interconnectivity is very second rate.
Summary: I have only owned for 1 week but I will share a few comments. * HDMI pass through allows HDMI inputs to pass through to the HDMI out. It doesn't mean that analog inputs like the Wii will passthrough without turning on the receiver. Just wanted to clarify in case this was an issue for some. * HDMI pass through is not enabled by default. You must configure in the setup menus so don't expect it to just magically work. Not hard to configure.

Summary: Got this unit to replace a sony ES2400 that the HDMI board went out on..(initially I tried the new Onkyo TX-NR609..that unit had problems..you can see my review on this site for that item) The RX-V667 is a great unit. My home set up for this review: Toshiba 55SV670U LED TV fed by Directv H20 HD receiver and Sony PS3 into Energy Take Classic 5.1 Surround...all via HDMI connection.
Summary: After weeks of scouring reviews of this receiver and similar featured receivers, I opted to pick one of these up. I would consider this a mid-level receiver with a considerable amount of features. One of the many reasons I chose this receiver was its HDMI support. Not only does it have an ample amount of HDMI in's, they can be used when the receiver isn't being used. I like to use this feature when I am playing a game that I don't need sound for.
Summary: I bought this receiver after months of research online. I had narrowed the choices down to the Yamaha RX-V667 and the Pioneer 1020. I was hesitant to purchase a Yamaha receiver because I had one several years ago and I was not impressed with its sound quality. I had Pioneer products before, and I was satisfied with them. However, after comparing these two units side by side, I decided to take the plunge and get the Yamaha.
