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.
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: 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. With five HDMI inputs in the back and one in the front, I have my cable box, Xbox 360, PS3, and soon my iMac connected to it. I also have the Wii connected via component cables. This is easily the best purchase I've made in a while.
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: 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 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.
Summary: Amazing. I had an HK - and this blows it away. Sound mix is perfect. Setup is a breeze - even though you have to read the manual on a pc/cd - oh well, I didn't need the manual anyway. It's perfect. Well kind of...they were out of the 667 so they sent me the 671. And I could not be happier.
