Summary: I purchased this receiver, and I have DirectTV in my home. This receiver is not compatible with the new content protection protocol HDCP 2.2 in the DirectTV receiver, and Yamaha's super un-helpful response was as follows: "Apologize for the inconvenience. The RX-V667 does not support HDCP 2.2.
Summary: After 4+ years of heavy use, this receiver is still going strong. Very happy with the performance. It has pretty much all of the features I want and very few of the superfluous features I don't want. It's also less tall than most comparable receivers, so it fits on my small TV stand shelf.
Summary: I've had this receiver for over a year now and I really like it a lot. Great sound and easy setup, especially with the microphone that will automatically balance the different speakers. Plenty of inputs.
Summary: I am using this with my Bose speakers. This is a decent product and I am totally satisfied with it. Its airplay feature lets me play my apple devices and also my PC (through iTunes) audio wirelessly on my home theater. It is little bulky but then most of the receivers are
Summary: I have a Yamaha RXV995 (100 X 5) which is over 10 years old. It doesn't have HDMI connectors so I thought I would "upgrade" to this unit (90 X 7). Well the HDMI switch was wonderful and I was able to switch from BluRay to the XBox and Satellite beautifully.
Summary: I've been using this receiver for a couple months now, and I have no complaints. The sound is good, and the on-screen interface is head and shoulders above the Harman Kardon it replaced. Update: The HDMI ports have collectively failed after 3 months, so I had to dock the rating to 3/5.

Summary: We had an old Yamaha receiver that was the cutting edge of technology back in 1993. This means no HDMI plugs. All of my other components are HDMI (except for the Wii, thanks Nintendo). So I was having to run the TV & DVR through an HDMI switch which plugged into the receiver.
Summary: This is the best receiver i have ever owned.Sounds great.I am 78 years old and it was easy to set up.I was disipointed that i cannot use my Bose 901 spks as a seperate connection when i do not want to use my Bose acousmass 6 surround system.
Awesome! Probably better than anyone really needs.

Summary: I was holding out for a long time on buying this one because of the price tag. After reading Cnet's review, I knew this is the one I wanted. I always read the 1 star reviews on these to see what other people had problems with and after owning it for about 5 months I can pretty much diagnose their...
Summary: I own a rx-v663 and upgraded this past weekend to the RX-V667. Skipping the 665 model was a good thing. This one has a great on screen GUI for changing the settings. It's an overlay, so you don't lose the video in the background when changing settings.
