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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
