Summary: If you're an audiophile looking for an awesome, powerful, feature packed A/V receiver that delivers all the above without breaking the bank, be sure to have a look at the Yamaha RX-V871. __ When researching my recent A/V receiver and looking over specs and reviews regarding offerings from Denon, Marantz, Pioneer, Sony and several other makers, the line of products from Yamaha all had one thing very much in common that lead me to look long and hard at theirs ...
Summary: This receiver is amazing. The sound is so much better than the denon it replaced (1611). The network capabilities are extremely user friendly. Its nice to be able to control apple tv on zone 2 while being in another room. Also the streaming of Pandora or other online music makes this the best receiver I ever owned. The only negative is I wish you could name the APP inputs on the iPhone/iPad APP.
Summary: This receiver rocks!!! If I can only buy one receiver in my life will be the RXV871. Yamaha made a master pc. on this one. I got the receiver at Amazon from Splash Electronics I got a good price and a 5 star service from them.I highly recommend both the receiver and the vendor. This receiver is powering the following Polk Audio speakers RTIA3 Front, RTiA1 Back, CSiA6 Center and a DSW Pro 550 Subwoofer.
Summary: It was time to replace my old Sony home theater system. I looked at several different models and brands including the Yamaha RX-V871. I was very impressed with the Yamaha receiver's specs and reviews I had read. One day, while at Costco I noticed they had the Yamaha RX-V871 for $489 - half the price of what I had seen online! I purchased and am so happy I did. This unit is superb! I paired it with a set of Polk Audio RM-705 5.1 speakers.
Summary: I did not get this receiver from Amazon. In fact i ordered the older RX-v867 which was last years model with similar features from another web site. Since the RX-v867 were selling for under $500 when the new model came out they became hard to get and this website (art of sales) sent me the newer model instead- the 871 at the same price! Warning - This was B - Stock product but so was the v867.
Yamaha Rules. Which One? How to Build a High End Audiophile Grade System Cheap

Summary: Yamaha has always produced a receiver that stood out amongst the crowd for transparency; sounds that were in the background of other receiver were brought to the forefront. Instruments muffled or should I say more muted that reside in the mid-range spectrum are brought forth with more clarity. The leading consumer reporting magazine gave the predecessor Yamaha RXV-663 their top award.
Summary: Can anyone explain the difference between the RX - A810 (the "Aventage" line) and the RX-V871? Why the two lines of product? What is the distinction between the two lines? The Yamaha website says the RX-V871 is "New" just like the Aventage line is "New".
Summary: I don't own this unit, but wanted to give people my thoughts on this. I was debating earlier this year when I was ready for a new receiver (to replace a Yamaha HTR-6240BL). I knew the RX-V671 was the newest model at that time and figured it wouldn't take long until they would come out with an "8" model.
Summary: I purchased the Yamaha RX-V871BL Receiver from Newegg to replace a 16 month old Onkyo HT System. I've added Polk RTi matched timbre speakers to complete a 7.1 system. I bridged my wireless system with "Linksys WES610N Four Port Bridge" to complete my system network capability. Manual: The manual came on a disk and is currently on both laptops, where it's much easier to find and reference. The manual is very thorough and should be read cover to cover.
Summary: I bought this receiver from Costco for $300 cheaper and its awesome!!! Initially I used the YPAO feature for calibration and for some reason the sub-woofer output was set very very low (-10dB) whereas output for satellites were in the range of 5dB - 8dB. So the bass was very low and I couldn't even feel it. I thought it's a problem with the receiver and was planning to return it.
