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. I have this hooked up to my 5.1 system with it bi-amped to my B&W floor standing speakers. The reason I decided to go with was it would power lower ohm speakers. My speakers are older and that was something I needed.
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. I would think that with so many years behind them Yamaha would have a better program staff. For such a good sound the interconnectivity is very second rate.
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. * HDMI pass through is not enabled by default. You must configure in the setup menus so don't expect it to just magically work. Not hard to configure.

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. My home set up for this review: Toshiba 55SV670U LED TV fed by Directv H20 HD receiver and Sony PS3 into Energy Take Classic 5.1 Surround...all via HDMI connection.
Summary: this is my first receiver and very happy to own it...cnet rated this model excellent for sound quality, user interface and connectivity...and overall rating was high on other websites too...really like on-screen GUI...makes life easy...helpful to understand signal info...and troubleshoot if there is any problem...just bought it yesterday...connected klipsch quintet 5 speakers....planning to do YPAO calibration next..
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.
Summary: Purchased this receiver in June of 2011 to run my surround sound and video through. Currently have hooked up to this receiver: U-Verse TV Cable Box Older DVD player that never gets used The Good: For a relatively cheap receiver, there are enough HDMI outputs for everything you may want to hook up to it It is a very easy receiver to set up and use right out of the box; very intuitive YPAO auto speaker set up is extremely easy, just plug in the mic and let the system do...
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.
