Phenomenal Receiver

KingOfTheInternet, Amazon
7 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this after heavy research 2.5 yrs ago. First of all, the sound quality is absolutely amazing. With my speakers I can get the best quality at whisper quiet or eardrum shattering loud. Movies in surround sound=amazing.

Outstanding

  • Pros: Excellent quality in every respect. I wish it had a coax and not just an optical output, since coax can go a longer distance.
  • Cons: none.

Fantastic receiver!

Shawn P., Newegg
27 December 2011
  • Summary: If you can't get your movies and music to sound great with this receiver it is YOUR FAULT. All of the technology, features, and hardware are here for you.
  • Pros: Even though it only has HDMI ports, it DOES support HDCP over DVI. My older HDTV only has a DVI port and my sources require HDCP-compliant devices. This receiver strips the audio and passes HDCP-protected content through an HDMI-to-DVI cable. This is surprisingly rare. The sound is phenomenal on ...
  • Cons: The only con that I can think of relates to the volume control; it comes in discrete units of 0.5dB. There's nothing actually wrong with it (you can always find the "right" volume), but it means that at some point in the audio path your signal is being truncated in a digital processor instead of ...

Best Bang for the Buck!!

Arshad R., Newegg
18 November 2011
  • Summary: I replaced my Harman/Kardon that went belly up after about 2.5 years of usage with this unit. Honestly, this is not sound as superb as the H/K i had, but its pretty good. But then again, H/K costs at least twice.
  • Pros: Super easy to set up. 7.2 surround. Runs cool. Lots of connections. Supports Pandora.
  • Cons: None

Simply Amazing

Hany Y., Newegg
17 November 2011
  • Summary: sucks for you because the egg discontinued this model Hopefully yamaha will keep releasing firmware upgrades for this little guy
  • Pros: 5 HDMI inputs Local Network Streaming/Internet Streaming Price (I stole it from the egg for $ 4 o o dollars including free shipping) 2 zones function separate of each other i.e. you can have zone one playing movies and zone 2 streaming music from Pandora! The GUI is amazing, for anyone complainin...
  • Cons: I wish it could streams my avi files from my NAS!!! I would have gladly paid double the price for this receiver so that I can stream videos from my NAS

So far so good

Brianne D., Newegg
2 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought the Yamaha v471 at best buy for $329 and loves it, the next day i was looking on newegg and I saw this reciever was on sale for $399 and it came with multiple zones, more hdmi ins/outs and it was 7.1 instead of 5.1.
  • Pros: Everything that has already been said, looks nice, many nice options, muliple zones for a good price, pleanty of HDMI ins/outs (for now), the setup is really easy and the fact it tells you if your wires are backwards in the reciever is nice as I dont have color coated wires.
  • Cons: Everyone claimed that Newegg.com had amazing shipping and said it was super fast, I ordered my reciever on Wednesday @ 7am est (so 4am newegg time) and I paid the extra for have the processing done faster ($3) and I didnt get my reciever until the following Monday which to me seems like a long ti...

YAMAHA RX-V867 - Rock on Yamaha

Jason N., Newegg
28 October 2011
  • Summary: Yamaha is going to be my receiver of choice for many years to come if this performance continues. I like to upgrade my receiver every 24-36 months, and the price and quality of this Yamaha are unbeatable. Onkyo and Pioneer do not compete.
  • Pros: This receiver replaced a $1,000 Harman Kardon model that I purchased three years ago. The sound may not be quite as rich as the Harman Kardon (I noticed a slight difference when I first hooked up the receiver, but cannot tell now), but the features and price blow the Harman Kardon out of the wate...
  • Cons: None really. Just a tremendous deal. It has my Klipsch speakers rocking the casbah! Listening to Rev Theory as I type this review. I wish it played nicer with OSX, but it's flawless with MS Windows.

Great Receiver at this price

Sean E., Newegg
16 October 2011
  • Summary: This is a premium receiver at a mid range price. Highly recommend as the performance-features versus price beats anything else I could find.
  • Pros: Future Proof: - Can add a projector to my HT later with the 2nd HDMI - Supports HDMI 1.4 and 3d HDMI passthrough - YPAO setup was a breeze, it noticed I had reversed the wiring on my rear surround and I fixed it. - Preouts for 2 subs - Zone 2 for outdoor use or bedroom use with the 2nd hdmi out i...
  • Cons: Cons - Unit is a little bigger than I expected, had to get a new entertainment center to get the advised 30cm top clearance. - Remote is not great, but solved with necessary universal remote anyways

Amazing Receiver, great price, perfect for your home theater!

Nathan A., Newegg
14 October 2011
  • Summary: I have no idea why there are 2 HDMI outs or how/why you'd use both? I'm running this with: -Polk Audio PSW505 sub -Polk Audio CS1 Series II -Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II x2 -Polk Audio Monitor40 Series II x2 -Polk Audio RM7 Satellite B x2 It sounds AMAZING (Polk speakers are a must) and all...
  • Pros: Incredible Sound -Future Proof (unlike the RX-V#71 series) -YPAO for auto-calculated speaker levels -Pandora, Internet Radio (Radio Swiss Jazz channel is soooo good!), Stream Bill Simmons podcast, Napster, Rhapsody, SIRIUS, & DLNA to connect to all your PCs on your network -Nice and easy to use U...
  • Cons: -No USB ports...The YDS-12 Dock & YID-W10 are a crock of ****, so overpriced....I just use my Blu Ray player's USB port since that runs through the receiver and has a nicer UI -No built in WiFi, which doesn't really matter to me since my router is right behind my home theater system and direct co...
