Family-friendly design with sound-enhancing features
 
I searched the Internet thoroughly before buying my first receiver in about a decade. I have been an audiophile since the 70's and used to use tube electronics and other exotica, but I was out of date regarding practical family-friendly AV receivers. I was put-off by the emphasis that some manufacturer's place in iPod/iPhone compatibility -- that feature is a nice-to-have in my book but it doesn't address the core requirements of a good home theater system. In the end, I selected Yamaha due to c...

Nice, Expensive, Full-Featured AV Receiver
 
I purchased the RX-V867 in the hopes of using its additional HDMI output to drive a second TV in our kitchen. Unfortunately, my kitchen TV was not fully HDMI compliant and the V867 displayed an error message and prevented the main TV from showing video properly. In the end, I resolved this problem by using an inexpensive HDMI splitter; I probably would have been just fine purchasing a V667.However, I really came to appreciate the 1080P upscaling for all HDMI sources and the network...

Yamaha RX-V867 receiver is excellent
 
I upgraded to the Yamaha RX-V867 primarily to get internet radio. I enjoy listening to high quality classical music and the internet has an abundance of stations available. An unexpected benefit - the sound quality is noticeably better than the replaced 4 year old receiver (not Yamaha) with a similar price point.Basic setup was straight forward with no problems. The internet connection and access to music files on my PC did not require any special setup and functioned without problem...

Great receiver !!
 
The description suggests that this receiver is NOT internet ready. It has an RJ-45 port for connecting to your home network. This allows you to listen to any music that is on your home network. I think this is a pretty important feature not to mention

Not a True BI-AMP
 
Yamaha advertises "Assignable amplifiers for bi-amp connection". This feature selectively routes the full-range signal for the front channel to the surround back channel. It does not implement any internal low-pass/high-pass crossover filtering at the pre-amp level- same signal to both amps. And no reasonable means to utilize an external active crossover network. A true bi-amp system seperates the signal into low and high frequency components BEFORE the power amplifiers so that each amplifier ca...

Love Yamaha, but maybe not this one...
 
So, I've owned a Yamaha RX-V595A for about 15 years and loved it. Output was great. User interface was simple, yet informative. With this new model it seems like the sound is quite week. You have to turn it way up in order to get a good sound out of it even though it has more watts per channel. It also never informs you of the decoder that it is using during output. I probably should have done a bit more research before purchasing this receiver. The one plus is all the HDMI inputs.

Great Receiver with Amazing sound
 
The receiver sounds much more realistic than my Onkyo SR-705 model that I replaced. The automatic speaker setup could not have been easier and no adjustment was needed. Firmware needed to be updated out of the box, but it was relatively easy.I have every (Moxi, Blu-Ray, PS3) device going into this receiver and the output going into the TV. The picture quality and sound is incredible.One feature that I wish was included was the ability to listen to another source while wat...

Awesome sound - now I need some better speakers!
 
This is replacing an almost 10 year old Sony 5.1 receiver. I was using optical and was tired of having so many cables. I wasn't in to the 7.1, but figured I might as well step up to it. This receiver is working great. I have 3 HDMI devices plugged into it, XBOX360, PS3, and a HD receiver from Charter. Then the HDMI outputs to my tv. For speakers I am using some old "THX Certified" Klipsch satellite speakers from a pc system I had, then the fronts I have two KLH bookshelf and a KLH center. ...
