Overall this is a really solid receiver. But there is one problem, you can't turn off the OSD(On Screen Display) volume overlay. So if you want to watch a movie with subtitles and you change the volume you can't see the subtitles. Or even worse you have a friend or family member that is hearing impaired, the overlay blocks the captions every time you change the volume. If that isn't a problem then this is a good option and compares favorably against the onkyo tx-nr609 or pioneer vsx-1021-k.

solid, no frills receiver

Comments about Yamaha 7.2-Channel Black Digital Home Theater Receiver:
bought this to replace an older 5.1 system in my mother's family/living room. the lack of a basic printed manual is frustrating. I understand not printing out a huge manual, but a basic schematics and operation instructions are reasonable expectations. I love the 6-1 hdmi. That and satellite radio intergration were the major selling points. sound is great (using 5.1 setup). these days, midrange receivers come with bluetooth, apple/android and streaming music compatability built-in (as opposed to having to buy an add-on device). So this system is clearly outdated. That said, the hdmi switch/passthrough works great (47" 240hz led), and the audio is great also. I would not recommend this because you can get more for much less, but it's a solid system if you don't want the whistles and can find it on clearance.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My son set up my system since there were no printed instructions in the box.My son created a schematic for us to use and it is really simple now for us. If I knew it did not contain installation instructions, I would not have bought it. But now that it is working the way it is, I am glad that we bought it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

a quality product
from Boston, MA
I bought it in April 2010, but didn't install till a year later. The setup was easy, remote control works fine with almost all AV appliances, pass-through is convenient, I wish it had an auxiliary audio jack to hook up with non-iPod players.

About Me Movie Enthusiast, Practical
I set up the RX-V667 in my 15'x17'master bedroom mainly for watching movies and music videos. The 90 watts per channel easily drives my 5.1 speaker setup. The HDMI system with ARC works perfectly between the receiver and television. Yamahas YPAO system instantly and accurately setup the room acoustics and speaker placement. The sound quality is amazing. I am very satisfied with the RX-667. Thank you Yamaha.

About Me Picky Researcher, Practical, Tech Savvy
I wanted to upgrade my entire Home Theater System because my old systemdid not allow me to connect some of my equipment in the manner it wasintended. I was especially concerned about getting a good (great) receiver.After extensive research and comparison of A/V Receivers if found theYamaha RX-V667 to meet all of my requirements.It was very easy to set up. A great remote control, well laid out. I like theon screen display. Most of all....Wow, I am hearing sounds that my old systemfailed to give me. I now have what I was looking for. I have one "bone to pick" with the manufacture, "WHY NO PRINTED MANUAL"? It concerns me and leads me to believe that when they have such a good product, why go on the cheap?All said, would I recommend this receiver....YES, but get on their case aboutthe manual.

Love this unit! Comes with an auto setup feature for the technically challenged that will set audio levels for each speaker using an included microphone that is used to measure speaker levels. Many features, too many to list here. Unbelievable sound quality. Would recommend 14 guage speaker wire instead of the included wire packaged w/unit. I use Onkyo speakers. Best buy in years.
Quite a Unit
from Novi, MI
About Me Practical, Tech Savvy
I looked at a few units before buying this Yamaha. I had a Sony receiver for many years but had to abandon it because it didn't have digital input.I looked at less expensive units but decided to go with the Yamaha because of the reviews, my previous experience with them, and the setup process that would use the supplied microphone unit to "listen" to the sounds in the room and automatically make setup adjustments.I really like this unit. GREAT sound quality. The fact that the menus project on my TV is a real bonus. The number of different sound choices is excellent and really makes a difference. The antenna for AM and FM are also very good. I haven't listened to radio in my home for many years due to the lack of having set it up on my last receiver (no antenna).I still have some more to go to better set up the scene modes, but I'm very happy with this unit. Does everything I need to very well and was easy to understand and set up.
A World Of Difference Over My Old Receiv
from Buffalo, NY
I bought this to replace an older receiver. I had issues connecting my stereo power amp to run speakers in another part of the house and decided to bi-amp those, problem resolved. I found out that to do so I would have to use component cables but decided to go HDMI. The 7.1 separation is great and this receiver sounds much better than the old one.
