Summary: I have owned my Yamaha RX-V667 unit two years as of today. It ran fine for a year, but then there were problems. The good: 1. radio receiver OK 2. Sound OK 3. Video/audio switching OK with HDMI, cumbersome without. The bad: 1. need more scene buttons so that - for example - if you have two DVD players you can have two DVD scenes, one for each. 2. aspects of the GUI are confusing and the manual is organized by function, not by task.
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.
I HAVE NOT USE IT YET STILL IN BOX, BUT MY NEPHEW IS A DJ AND HE SAYS IS THE TOP OF THE LINE WITH KLIPSCH SPEAKERS

Summary: Purchased this receiver in June of 2011 to run my surround sound and video through.

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.
