Yamaha Rules. Which One? How to Build a High End Audiophile Grade System Cheap
 
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. Then along came the re-engineered 665 and if you read the reviews here that was a black sheep. Now they are back...

very nice receiver
 
I just got this receiver. Setup was easy. Everything is working well, so far. Comes with a microphone for calibration. I got mine at Costco for about $300 cheaper. It is in-store only, not online.

Nice Unit
 
I also got this receiver from Costco to replace a 12 year old Yamaha. The performance has been excellent. I especially like the Network capability. Not only can I listen to Pandora natively, I can control the unit with any device on my network. So I can turn it on from bed with a smartphone!This model also supports two speaker zones and they can play independent sources. Or you can add a ridiculous number (11) of speakers to the main playing area (7.2 + presence). I am only run...

It's ok if you like a bright sounding receiver
 
I've had my technics av receiver since 1997 and it was still working, but didn't have hdmi inputs and all the other great features of this receiver as mentioned in the product description. I watch a lot of BD and also listen to a lot of music, so I thought it was time to buy a new receiver. I bought it at Costco today and it's definitely a lot cheaper.The features and the build quality of the yamaha receiver are outstanding. The owner's manual comes on a cd rom, which can be a pain...

Yamaha Rx-v871
 
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. B-Stock per Yamaha means that the unit has been either refurbished, or used in a demo etc.A...

Check out the RX-V867 first!
 
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.In the end I didn't wait (I'm impatient, you know) and purchased last years model (the RX-V867), which is apart from the 2 additional HDMI inputs, the exact same ...

Yamaha RX-V871BL
 
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.Remote Control: The rem...

Low Bass with auto calibration using YPAO
 
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. However after manual calibration, I set the sub-woofer volume to +5dB and after that it's just fabulous. Only missin...

Amazing AV Receiver
 
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. The system sounds fantastic with enough power to handle sm...
