It doesn''t take a 2 thousand dollar receiver to do what this RX-V667 does

Summary: Excellent receiver !! I have it ran through a BK amp out to a 5.1 setup at the moment. My front speakers are B&W 804s, HTM1 center & a pair on 805's for the rear. Two big ASW 750 sub wooers round out the system. I wasn't looking for a high powered AVR just one that had many nice features such as pre outs, two sub outs, & HDMI with audio return. This low price receiver has it all. YPAO setup is a snap, just a little tweaking to get it just right.
Summary: Purchased this receiver in June of 2011 to run my surround sound and video through. Currently have hooked up to this receiver: Optoma HD20 High Definition 1080p DLP Home Theater Projector (Grey) Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System (Set of Six, Black) PlayStation 3 160GB System U-Verse TV Cable Box Older DVD player that never gets used The Good: For a relatively cheap receiver, there are enough HDMI outputs for everything you may want to hook up to it It is a very...
Summary: Amazing. I had an HK - and this blows it away. Sound mix is perfect. Setup is a breeze - even though you have to read the manual on a pc/cd - oh well, I didn't need the manual anyway. It's perfect. Well kind of...they were out of the 667 so they sent me the 671. And I could not be happier.
Summary: So far I am loving this reciever. It sounds great, clear at even the highest of volumes. I have 4 full sized floor speakers attached to it, a center, and a (self-powered) sub. and it will push them to the max. I primarily bought this unit because of its 2-zone support. It gives me the ability to power the speakers around my pool and the speakers in my house all with one unit. Initial setup isn't hard, but isn't all that easy either.
Summary: I bought this to replace an Onkyo ht-809 included with the Onkyo ht-9300HX home theater in a box system. This receiver works. Period. Great sound, easy to use on screen display and a logically designed remote. It has a display I can read across the room so I can actually use the remote! It also has on screen display for many of the options.
Summary: While it was easy to hook up, I almost always have to turn it off and on again for the speakers to work for TV viewing. If I turn the TV on and receiver on at the same time - no speakers. I have to wait for the TV to be fully on before I turn the receiver on. Also, if I go from CD/DVD player to TV viewing, I have to turn the receiver off and on again for the speakers to work. Not sure if it is the way I hooked it up (doubt it)or just the receiver itself.
Summary: Updated from a 12 year old yamaha and I was blown away with the superior sound from the old unit the setup was simple, it took about 2 hours to rewire and set the speakers.I upgraded to 7.2 from 5.1, put in transformers Dark side of the moon(THE BEST MOVIE AVAILABLE TO DISPLAY 7.1 SOUND)and could not believe the true separation of the surround speakers.I can now hear faint sounds from my speakers I never knew existed.Buy this unit,cant go wrong.
Upgrading from the 20th Century to the 21st Century

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. The Xbox was plugged into the TV so no game play in surround. The Blu-Ray was the same. I wanted a Yamaha because the existing receiver worked great.
