Summary: Got this to replace my Yamaha HTR-5635 from 2003. Provides great sound, good video processing and a multitude of settings to dial it in.. Can easily drive 7 speakers and 2 powered subs. Yamaha once again proves they are second to none when it comes to receivers...
Summary: This unit works really well. I paired it with the Onkyo 7.1 speakers and it works great. The only complaint I have is that the default setting is Audio 1, even though I have nothing connected to that. It senses when the connection powers up, but if its hooked to the computer like mine is, in between screens on booting it falls back on the Audio 1 setting, and I have to change it to the HDMI 1 setting that my computer is connected to.
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. After a year I think I have it going for me. At least I know where I like it set for music and where I like it set for movies. I'm really enjoying it and would recommend it to others.
Summary: After a lot of searching I decided to buy the Yamaha RX-V667 . It was priced right and the reviews spoke about it's sound quality. It does sound better than my older Sherwood HT amp . Good value for the price.
Summary: After weeks of scouring reviews of this receiver and similar featured receivers, I opted to pick one of these up. I would consider this a mid-level receiver with a considerable amount of features. One of the many reasons I chose this receiver was its HDMI support. Not only does it have an ample amount of HDMI in's, they can be used when the receiver isn't being used. I like to use this feature when I am playing a game that I don't need sound for.
Summary: I bought this receiver after months of research online. I had narrowed the choices down to the Yamaha RX-V667 and the Pioneer 1020. I was hesitant to purchase a Yamaha receiver because I had one several years ago and I was not impressed with its sound quality. I had Pioneer products before, and I was satisfied with them. However, after comparing these two units side by side, I decided to take the plunge and get the Yamaha.
Summary: I own a rx-v663 and upgraded this past weekend to the RX-V667. Skipping the 665 model was a good thing. This one has a great on screen GUI for changing the settings. It's an overlay, so you don't lose the video in the background when changing settings. It pops out from the left side and then you scroll up and down to pick the setting to change. Then those options are popped up from the bottom of the screen and you scroll right and left.
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).
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.
