The RX-V671 A/V Receiver adds networking capabilities for countless hours of internet music streaming enjoyment along with iPhone AV controller App compatibility. Featuring HD Audio decoding, 1080p-compatible HDMI (6 inputs including one on front panel/1 output) with 3D and Audio Return Channel, front panel USB input, on-screen GUI, Cinema DSP 3D surround without Front Presence Speakers, yAired / iPod/iPhone and Bluetooth compatibility, YPAO, SCENE buttons, plus much, much more.

Key Features:

  • Front Panel USB Digital connection with iPod and iPhone Audio Control
    A USB port on the front panel provides convenient connection for your iPod/iPhone, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone is transmitted directly to the AV Receiver, noise interference is minimized and sound quality is much better.
  • Network Capability
    This model offers networking capabilities and can serve as the hub of a home entertainment network that’s connected to the Internet. Its powerful networking capabilities provide enjoyment of thousands of free Internet radio stations worldwide and full access to free and paid music streaming services such as Pandora, vTuner, Rhapsody, SiriusXM Internet Radio and Napster. This model is also Windows 7 and DLNA 1.5 certified which allows access to music files on any computer or local NAS drive content available on the home network.
  • iPhone AV Controller App
    Use in a Home Network for More Music, Easy Control: This AV Receiver can be the control center of a home entertainment network connected to the internet. You can use the AV Controller app for control from an iPhone, etc., and enjoy music streaming from Pandora, Napster, Rhapsody and Sirius Internet Radio.
  • HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel
    1080p HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel (4 In/ 1 Out) deliver crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video via a single cable, HDMI dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest-quality home theater experience. HDMI can provide an interface between most audio/video sources, such as a set-top box, Blu-ray player, DVD player, or A/V receiver and a video monitor, such as a High Definition Television (HDTV), over a single cable. Audio Return Channel (ARC) is a distinctive 3D-ready function allows consumers to use a single HDMI connection to transfer digital audio from the TV bfack to the AV Receiver eliminating the need for a second cable between the TV and the home theater AV Receiver
  • Front Panel HDMI Input
    An HDMI terminal on the front panel makes it easy to connect a camcorder or digital camera. All of the HDMI terminals are compatible with 3D and CEC, making them convenient for connecting set-top boxes and Blu-ray disc players.
  • HD Audio with CINEMA DSP 3D
    CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers. The actually measured sound field data contain the information of the height of the sound images. CINEMA DSP 3D mode achieves the reproduction of the accurate height of the sound images so that it creates the accurate and intensive stereoscopic sound fields in a listening room
  • Analog and HDMI Video Upscaling to Full HD 1080p
    This model is capable of outstanding upscaling and i/p conversion quality, This AV Receiver will upscale video signals up to 1080p. This means a much better picture with HDTVs capable of 720p, 1080i or 1080p resolution. This model also features extremely precise motion adaptive and edge adaptive deinterlacing and multi-cadence detection (including 3-2 pull-down).
  • Advanced On-Screen GUI
    On-Screen Advanced GUI (Graphical User Interface) Yamaha’s latest Graphical User Interface has a high resolution display with clear, easy-to-use menus and also includes a selectable Status Bar that shows input source, volume level, DSP mode and audio format.
  • SCENE for One-Touch Start
    The Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for BD/DVD Viewing, CD Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button will automatically launch a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, SiriusXM Listening [model dependent], TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browsing and selecting the settings is quickly accomplished by changing Input via the front panel and watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for one-time use, or they can replace the original default settings. The SCENE names can be changed also
  • YPAO Automatically Sets the Best Sound for Any Room
    Yamaha’s YPAO system uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters, such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers and even the sound pressure level, etc. Until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room and you don't have to do anything!
  • Compressed Music Enhancer
    When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. This function restores what was lost, so your music always sounds the way it should
  • Eco-Friendly Design
    The RX-V471 has a low standby power consumption of 0.1W (1.2W in HDMI Standby Through mode) and an Auto Power Down feature (selectable to 4, 8 or 12 hours) which help make this an environmentally friendly receiver

The sound from this receiver is amazing. I give it 5-stars and I still need to add more speakers. Even when playing compressed mp3's the enhancer actually adds quite a bit of depth.

Setup was straight forward. The on screen menus are easy to use, the design is lacking, but really they aren't accessed all that often once everything is setup. The on screen menus are still far better than trying to configure everything with extra buttons on the remote or using the front panel display.

Speaking of the remote...they really need to simplify the remote and do more on screen. The remote is ok, but it could be better with less buttons. Once you program the 4 main buttons to the settings of your choice then it is one click to go to any device you want to use and it works pretty well. In fact, it was able to control my tivo just fine. The remote isn't as nice as a tivo remote... too many annoying buttons and the layout is lame, but at least I still only have one remote. On the plus side they offer an iphone app to control quite a bit. The iphone app interface could could be designed a bit better, but it is nice to be able to browse through itunes playlists and have full control of volume and power, selecting other devices, browsing pandora, and other radio stations.

The one area that I had a hard time deciding on when I was looking to purchase this unit was the lack of Apple Airplay support found in two other receivers at a similar price point. I have to say it would have been nice and easy and would have saved some time. However, I can report this unit works just fine with my itunes library and dynamic playlists, but you have to use some third party software to get DLNA to work. Some software is free others are affordable and do the same thing. The one I am using now is Elgato Eyeconnect software for the mac. Once this software is running everything is easy to setup and use. Note the audio-only version of this software is completely free and works great. There are others that work on intel Macs but since my library is on an older G5 this is one of the only solutions that worked seamlessly. Read below for the full details of the process I went through evaluating different UPNP/DLNA software solutions for the mac.

There are two other areas that I would like to see improved...
1. When listening to music from Pandora or your itunes library it will pull up artwork and display info about who is playing but the overall design is horrible. It should be elegant and fun to watch or something you wouldn't mind leaving on at a party. Instead I just turn the tv off, or go through the PS3 interface which has a lot better visualizer.

2. Before adding a receiver everything was connected to the tv directly and the tv allowed each HDMI input to have its own picture settings, so you could really have a different setup for games, movies, Tivo. but since the receiver is now the middle man you only get one setting for all devices, it would be nice if they allowed each to be configured a little bit, like contrast, brightness, color, etc. I haven't really seen this on other receivers though. After a few months of use this doesn't seem to be an issue, or maybe I am not as critical.

Overall, I really love this receiver and would recommend it even without Airplay.

Here are the details about my adventure getting DLNA/UPNP to work with my setup.

First off, I thought DLNA and UPNP were the same or had the same goal of working nicely together, but it turns out they are completely separate and therefore the poor consumers have to pay attention to the details. Apple Airplay is similar, they noticed DLNA was nice in theory, but not great in practice so they created their own way to share things on the network with other devices. Great now we have all these devices and they all have their own interoperability standards. LAME.

Ok, so I know my tv is DNLA compatible, I thought my PS3 was or is UPNP, now my receiver supports DLNA 1.5, my PowerMac G5 uses the powerPC processor instead of intel, it is getting a bit dated now, but its still a great server and should be quite capable.

I know I needed DLNA or UPNP software to make my Mac visible to these devices so I downloaded as many as I could and evaluated the following: Nullriver MediaLink, Elgato Eyeconnect, Playback, TVMobili, Majestic, Serviio, and TwonkyMediaServer.

What I found is some of the newer open source software is for intel macs not my older powerPC, so my options were limited. Next, some software such as nullriver works great for sharing music, movies, and photos to the PS3, this allows me to use the PS3's prettier visualizer when listening to music. However, the nullriver mediaLink does not show up directly with my receiver. This means I have to have the PS3 on to listen to music, which is fine some of the time but not all. Next, I found Elgato EyeConnect works with both the PS3 and receiver directly, but the software crashes or stops frequently when used with the PS3, (note this is an older version that supports older Mac powerPCs), and it works great with the receiver. Some of the others had a conflict where you cannot have multiple DLNA or UPNP software running at the same time because they need to use the same ports.

Here is a quick evaluation of each:
Nullriver MediaLink— best for PS3 $20
Elgato Eyeconnect — best for receiver, not sure about movies, I am using the free audio-only version
Playback - not sure
TVMobili - interface shows up for both PS3 and receiver, but no content shows up, others noticed this problem specific to G5's powerPC
Majestic - older version is available for the powerPC, only works with the PS3
Serviio - Free, doesn't work on an older Macs
TwonkyMediaServer — $20 works for both PS3 and yamaha receiver but itunes dynamic playlists aren't available ( i like dynamic playlists so this one was out for me)

Now I am using Nullriver MediaLink for movies/music streaming to the PS3 and I use Elgato Eyeconnect when I just want quick access to music directly from the receiver with the TV off.

After all this Airplay is looking better and better, but now that I have a solution I don't need to upgrade my G5 just yet and I can control my music from my iphone and have a nice setup. Hope this is useful to someone.

I was disappointed that hdmi inputs could not be output except through hdmi. None of the promotional material mentioned this limitation, Only a careful examination of the manual (footnotes and obscure tables) revealed it.

And the hdmi connections didn't always work. (1) an hdmi android stick that worked with three other pieces of equipment I had failed to work properly when connected to this unit; output cycled on and off every few seconds. (2) The hdmi output failed to work at all with one of the connections I wanted when paired with one of my inputs. Again, this connection was fine with other pieces of equipment.

The principal reason I bought t his unit was to provide convenient switching: using one remote control instead of three. It didn't do it. I have two hdmi amps on order which might solve the problem, but in the meantime some of myswitching has to be done through the TV, some through this unit. And I haven't been able to figure out a workaround with my Harmony remote.

That said, the sound seems noticeably better than with my previous Yamaha RX-V463. It could be a better YPAO, or maybe better sound field circuitry.

Comments about Yamaha 7.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

I use it in my media room, and this is the heart of my 7.1 setup
The interfacing with Network and paying contents on the network, and iPhone is incredible. Doing all this without the airplay is great! I did not have to spend extra for Airplay.

    Comments about Yamaha 7.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

    This is a great receiver. I love the sound and the ease of setting it up. This replaced an outdated Onkyo and I couldn't be happier. The sound is much better and the many settings options available allow you to fine tune it as you see fit.
    I use this with Onkyo front, center & Sub speakers and Orb rears in a 6.1 set up. My monitor is a 70" Sharp LED.

        Comments about Yamaha 7.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

        This receiver was purchased as an upgrade to a Samsung home theater starter system. The reasons I bought it was that it had plenty of HDMI ports and it had 2 zones if I ever wanted to add a 2nd zone. Setup was easy and we love streaming Pandora on it! The ease of use is great and there is an Android app that my wife downloaded that makes it even easier to use. The only thing I have to figure out is karaoke. My HTPC is directly connected to the receiver and I cannot watch the PC with the audio out from the karaoke machine (2 different sources). There is probably a way I just haven't figured it out yet.

        I bought this receiver to replace an older Sony receiver because I needed HDMI connections for Xbox, TV, etc. This is one sweet receiver! After connecting the receiver to my home network and logging into my Pandora account, my wife and I spend more time listening to music than watching TV. I have absolutely no regrets about buying this receiver and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to upgrade to new technology.
