Yamaha RX-V667

 

Excellent sound quality; six HDMI inputs; best-in-class graphical user interface; analog video upconversion; audio return channel supported; standby pass-through; 7.1 multichannel analog inputs; 3D compatible; second-zone functionality.

Requires $100 dock for iPod/iPhone connectivity; no minijack input; more expensive than some competitors.

Yamaha's RX-V667 is one of the best midrange AV receivers of 2010, with excellent sound quality, a best-in-class user interface, and more connectivity than its competitors, but it may be more AV receiver than you need.

Yamaha RX-V667 7.2 Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver First Look

 

If you take a closer look at the specifications between the RX-V665 and RX-V667 you will see just how much Yamaha has beefed up the latter and at a very small and worthwhile cost adder to the consumer.

From soup to nuts, we like just about everything we see with the new Yamaha RX-V667 7.2 A/V receiver. I do miss their signature frontpanel orange display found on their older models but that's just a personal preference. Yamaha updated their new 07...

Yamaha RX-V667 7.2 Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver Preview

 

The RX-V667 is sure to be a hit among budget minded A/V-philes craving legitimately good performance for little out of pocket expense. Discrete amps and 3D processing for under $600. Wow!

Yamaha RX-V667 AV Receiver

 

Yamaha has made some interesting choices in its new receiver.

Yamaha has adopted a very strong audio focus for this receiver, to the extent of excluding some new tech extras. It works like a far more expensive receiver, thanks to the GUI that the other two lack. It supports traditional audio sources, including a...

"Powerful, versatile receiver"

 

I have owned this receiver for about a year and am very impressed. To focus on some points not covered in the review, this unit offers a 7 band parametric equalizer that is adjustable for frequency, gain, and Q (how broadly or narrowly the equalization...

Solid decoding, parametric equalizer

"Top, year in with it too."

 

For the price you can't go wrong.

price, hdmi actually works with everything (have it hooked to imac, xbox, etc), on-screen is clean

none, well, to be ambitious maybe a native server with spotify integration... wirelessly.

"Outstanding Home Theater Receiver!"

 

CNET Editors make great picks, and the Yamaha RX-V667 is no exception. I got a Roku and an Apple TV for Christmas 2010, and my TV lacked sufficient interfaces to connect all the new devices. So I went to CNET, found this recommendation, and bought it....

Great audio quality, Great picture quality, Lot's of device interfaces (including 5 HDMI), Easy to navigate on-screen user interface, Plenty of sound options, seems to be compatible with everything, works right out of the box, worry free.

None so far (8months and counting).
