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.
Upgrading from the 20th Century to the 21st Century
30 December 2011
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 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: This unit resolved many of my a/v issues with my mix of older and newer a/v technolgies. I went from 5 remotes down to three and that's only because I haven't gotten around to programming the other ones yet. No issues with the receiver and so far it's been a plug and play dream.
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: 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 chose the RX-V667 because it gave the same features as some Denon and Harmon-Kardan models for a price that was at least $200 lower. Having the 6 HDMI inputs is great as well as being able to configure HDMI pass through.
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: I used Cnet for evaluating receivers after my new Sharp 70" television arrived and realized the connections weren't all that compatible with my old Pioneer. This particular model was highly rated, but was last years model. This means it was much cheaper than the newer one, but who cares?
Summary: I purchased this receiver several months back to power a 5.1 setup of Polk Audio Speakers. The receiver seems to work well for the setup and I haven't found any problems so far. Installation was fairly easy and the YPAO mic was a nice addition for the novice home user like myself to get all the...
