Upgrading from the 20th Century to the 21st Century
30 December 2011
Summary: We had an old Yamaha receiver that was the cutting edge of technology back in 1993. This means no HDMI plugs. All of my other components are HDMI (except for the Wii, thanks Nintendo). So I was having to run the TV & DVR through an HDMI switch which plugged into the receiver.
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.
Summary: This unit resolved many of my a/v issues with my mix of older and newer a/v technolgies. I went from 5 remotes down to three and that's only because I haven't gotten around to programming the other ones yet. No issues with the receiver and so far it's been a plug and play dream.
Summary: I used Cnet for evaluating receivers after my new Sharp 70" television arrived and realized the connections weren't all that compatible with my old Pioneer. This particular model was highly rated, but was last years model. This means it was much cheaper than the newer one, but who cares?
Summary: I bought this receiver along with the Energy Take Classic speakers to replace my old home theatre system. The combination is superb. This receiver offers a bright and high sound resolution, comparable to the Denon receivers which I believe are the best -- but this Yamaha RX-V667 not only is $160...
Summary: I chose the RX-V667 because it gave the same features as some Denon and Harmon-Kardan models for a price that was at least $200 lower. Having the 6 HDMI inputs is great as well as being able to configure HDMI pass through.
Summary: This Yamaha receiver sounds absolutely wonderful! I upgraded from an older Yamaha that I bought some seven years ago. The sound quality is simply top notch and blows my previous receiver's sound quality away. It's very crisp and clear.
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.
Summary: This is the best receiver i have ever owned.Sounds great.I am 78 years old and it was easy to set up.I was disipointed that i cannot use my Bose 901 spks as a seperate connection when i do not want to use my Bose acousmass 6 surround system.
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.
