Summary: I use this product with Onkyo 7.1 surround sound speakers and it works beautifully. I would highly recommend this for anyone that is interested in a home theater system, but doesn't want to break the bank. This is my first receiver and I am highly pleased after almost 8 months of use.
Summary: First off, I am not a huge audio guy... I just know what sounds good and what doesn't. I run a very simple setup at home... 2 Klipsch KG4's, a big Klipsch center channel speaker, and a 10" Klipsch powered sub.
Summary: We have bought Yamaha amps for the last 15 years and we have yet to be disappointed by them. This took it to a new level. We are running a 7.1 system with 2 additional speakers (all Yamaha) in another room. I like I can have CD in one room and radio in the other at the same time.
Summary: The Yamaha RX-V671 is my first HDMI receiver and it's a bargain for the price paid. It has many of the desired features of the top receivers on the market (except Airplay, but that's not a deal breaker for me) and plenty of HDMI inputs. The owner's manual can be overwhelming for newbies.
Summary: I am too old to get into a lot of minutiae when it comes to audio; first I remember the audio wars of the 60s/70s; secondly, my hearing is now 60 years old. I got this to replace a 4 year old Onkyo; worked well enough when it did; but it got senile and started losing its settings.
My 2 cents after 20 months of ownership, great receiver/amp
24 November 2012
Summary: Update August 21, 2013. Seeing more than I expected number of reviews stating this Receiver fails after a year or so I wanted to advise I have my TV picture & sound running through the V671 via hdmi cable along with CD player, Blu-Ray and newly purchased AppleTV.
Summary: I owned a Yamaha receiver prior to buying this one that lasted me a good long time and had ample power. The old one which was 10+ years old ended up dying on me so after much research I purchased this receiver and I am pleased with it.
Summary: This receiver was easy as pie to set up with supplied pictures. It comes with a DVDrom manual but I haven't used it yet because it works fantastic just as it sits. I was unprepared for the fact that the image quality would get better using my receiver HDMI switch as opposed to my external switch.
