Summary: I've always been impressed by Yamaha products and this receiver is no exception. It's a 7.2 channel receiver that packs an insane amount of features into a modest price. Before I made the purchase, I called Yamaha's customer service guys and asked them a few questions and they were able to answer everything for me. I got right to a person who spoke English and they knew their products (and actually said they had a full lab for testing stuff).
Summary: I bought this unit to replace my JVC receiver, which wasn't 3D acceptable or high speed HDMI. On screen prompts makes set-up easy. Many bells and whistles to play with to make it YOUR sound. Several HDMI inputs allows you to connect a bunch of your toys, upscaleing composite, DVD and VHS is a great feature. Attach the optional Yamaha YDS11 dock and play your ipod/ipad right through your entertainment system. Lots of power and the clarity of sounds is wonderful.
Summary: The Yamaha Rx V667 is a great buy from usabargains. It has great sound and with all the hdmi inputs I still have room to grow. I also like the GUI easy to use and set up. I do think that the Ipod connectivity should have had more focus when designing it would have made it the best choice within its class.
Summary: I bought the Yamaha RX V667 7.2 Channel 630 watt Receiver to replace an older Sony model. I chose the Yamaha RX V667 because it allowed me to utilize the newer HDMI technology for connecting the various components I own. It is also the top rated model in it's class. To date it more than exceeds my expectations. The receiver that preceded that Sony was a Yamaha that I bought in 1983... it is still in use in another part of the house.
Summary: I have heard other units but nothing compare to all the stuff this unit can do i have paired it with Klipsch quintets and klipsch subwoofer .and the clarity behind this one is impressive.Definitely not underpowered. And has more than enough outputs to fulfill each of your components. Definitely will never buy another receiver......
Summary: I purchased the Yamaha RX-V667 to replace an older RCA receiver that finally gave up the ghost. I couldn't be happier with my purchase! The sound out of this unit mimics that of much higher priced units I've heard. Very crisp, Clear high tones, EXCELLENT surround effects, and great bass sound reproduction. The online GUI is very easy to navigate and the YBAO room setup makes setting the individual speakers a breeze.
Summary: Works great. Upscales the satellite from 780 and below to 1080P. Increases definition on my 55" screen. The 3D Effect works great too, The Blue Ray and downloaded 3d works great through the system. Additionally, the 7.2 (2 subwoofer) sound and the ability to tune how you weant to hear it, increases the total viewing effect.
