Summary: Excellent. I replaced my older yamaha receiver with this more updated model. Perfect! System is amazing. Works perfectly with all components! For the price, coupled with the features, it can't be beat.
Summary: I purchased this unit in February of this year. It was a great unit for the first three months. At that time the display went bad on the front. It would display characters that I can best describe as the old wingdings font. It would no longer tell you any useful information on the front display, you had to use the TV to do anything. A call to tech support tried the reset procedure.
Summary: Replaced my 4 yr old Denon 3808ci (HDMI board died) with the Denon 891 but returned it due to personal dislikes with the soundfield choices. Since my 16 yr old Yamaha is still going strong (but with no HDMI), I decided to go back to a Yamaha. Did the usual research and, trying to keep below $500, decided to choose the 2010 model 667 over the 2011 model 671. Set it up last weekend.
Awesome! Probably better than anyone really needs.

Summary: I was holding out for a long time on buying this one because of the price tag. After reading Cnet's review, I knew this is the one I wanted. I always read the 1 star reviews on these to see what other people had problems with and after owning it for about 5 months I can pretty much diagnose their issues: Lipsynch problem: It's your player or your disc or Netflix, not the receiver. Sound sucks: No, your speakers suck.
Summary: I bought this product as it has one of the best review and I second the fact that it is awesome. Pros: 6 HDMI inputs which is awesome.. Upscaling of videos which is very audible and visible on the videos The calibration mic is very accurate. Cons: No Internet connectivity The system display showing you information the screen needs more inspiration. Subwoofer needs more clarity(or it could be a defect in the way I set it up. However in short I am definitely enjoying it!
Summary: The receiver and I are still in an early "get to know one another phase". I was able to connect to speakers and other equipment but it is not intuitive and instructions are either too skimpy or contain way too much jargon.The included manual on CD forces one to scroll or jump from one part to another. I am glad I have a laptop so I could read directions when behind the receiver. The YPAO speaker equalizer functioned beautifully and directed me to correct a minor problem.
Summary: I have this paired with the polk monitor 70's, a CS-20 center, 505 Sub, Polk monitor 30's in the rear, and a pair of fishers that are nearly as old as me for front presence. I couldn't be happier, all of the input and output option are there to play with as you see fit. The sound stage, especially with the front presences hooked up, is fantastic, clear, crisp, and incredibly wide.
Summary: Had this unit for 3 months now and all I can really say is that I'm a very happy customer. It just worked right out of the box. Everything (PS3, Wii, projector) that I've hooked up to it works perfectly. Picture, and sound is top notch for its price. And the on screen menu is the best I've seen on a receiver. I highly recommend it.
Summary: First, this receiver sounds great. I bought it to be my AV receiver in my family room with a 55" LCD TV, a cable box, a BlueRay DVD player and a Windows 7 Media Center computer. It handles all of these fine and the 5.1 surround sound is beautiful. I also bought the receiver to be able to send all of these sources' audio outside to the speakers by my hot tub. The problem is that Zone 2 only plays from the analog inputs, not the HDMI sources.
