Features:

4K Pass-Through and Upscaling Supports Latest High Resolution Video Formats
This AV receiver's HDMI input/output supports 4K video image pass-through. It also can perform 4K upscaling to boost a lower resolution image to super high-def resolution. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats.

HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel
3D means the receiver can handle 3D signal data. The Audio Return Channel function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable, so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable, with no need for an extra optical cable.

High Quality Video Processing with Edge Adaptive Deinterlacing
In ordinary deinterlacing, pixels in areas of movement are interpolated by upper and lower ranges. This causes jaggies in diagonal lines. Edge adaptive deinterlacing detects the direction of the line and interpolates the pixels optimally.

Network Functions
This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation. You can connect the receiver to a PC to enjoy Internet Radio and operate your system via Web Browser Control. The AV Controller app (from iTunes App Store or Android Market) lets you control various functions from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android phones.

AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation
This AV Receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller app that is downloadable from the iTunes App Store or Android Market to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android phones. A tablet version is also available.

AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to AV Receiver
This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means they can accept wireless music streaming from iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on Macs or PCs. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can use view metadata such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via AV receiver's on-screen display.

YPAO-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) Sound Optimization
YPAO-R.S.C. analyzes room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalization, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds.

USB Digital Connection for iPod, iPhone, and iPad on the Front Panel
A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone/iPad is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver’s remote control unit to operate the iPod/iPhone/iPad music playback functions.

Advanced Multi-Language GUI On-Screen Display
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. The GUI provides a choice of seven languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish and Chinese, and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures.

Intelligent Amp Assign
Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers, depending on what functions are selected. For example, in a 7.1-channel system, when Zone 2 is off, all 7.1 channels will be used in the Main Zone. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the two Surround Back channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2, and the Main Zone will receive 5.1 channels of power. Similarly, when CINEMA DSP 3D is on, the two Front Presence speakers will be powered and not the two Surround Back speakers. When CINEMA DSP 3D is off, this situation is reversed. Thanks to Intelligent Amp Assign, there’s no need to switch the speaker cables on the rear of the receiver—one more way Yamaha makes your life a little easier.

SCENE for One-Touch Start
Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV Receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can re-set the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.

HDMI Front Panel Input
In addition to the large number of HDMI inputs on the rear panel, there is also one on the front panel. This gives you a convenient way to quickly plug in a digital camera or camcorder for highest quality pictures.

Input Selection in HDMI Standby Through Mode
When the AV receiver is in HDMI Standby Through mode, the input source (Blu-ray™ Disc player, game console, etc.) for viewing on the monitor can be changed via the remote control. There’s no need to turn on the AV receiver in order to switch sources.

HDMI CEC for Easy Operation
Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, it will turn on and off together with the TV, and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver’s remote unit to control player functions like Skip and Stop. 

HD Audio with CINEMA DSP 3D and Virtual Presence Speaker
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.

Subwoofer Trim for Improved Sound Imaging
The Subwoofer Trim control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is “pushed” toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.

Dialogue Lift and Dialogue Level Adjustment for natural dialogue and vocals
Dialogue Lift raises the sound of dialogue from the center speaker to a position in the center of the screen. Newly developed virtual dialogue lift achieves dialogue lift function even without the need for presence speakers. Dialogue Level Adjustment lets you control the volume of the vocal sound, so you hear movie dialogue and music vocals at the ideal level for clear, comfortable listening.

Compressed Music Enhancer
When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.

Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
Adaptive DRC automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume level. This ensures that you hear clear dialog and vocals, and all sound effects at comfortable levels. There is no need to adjust the volume level as you listen; everything from whispers to big explosions will be heard clearly and comfortably at the same volume setting. It also tones down loud TV commercials, and is ideal for low-volume, late-night listening, when you do not want to disturb others.

ECO mode lowers power consumption by 20%
Yamaha’s new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu.

Yamaha RX-V673 AV Receiver Review by K Miller

KEY POSITIVES:
• Air Play works flawlessly playing music off of: a) iPod/ iPhone, b) Pandora app on iPod/iPhone, or c) iTunes on pc connected on same network. Album art for currently playing song is nicely displayed on an HDMI connect monitor. Airplay support is an awesome feature! (Note: a separate Wi-Fi wireless access point or router on the local network is required).
• Network Play of Internet Radio works great. (However, I was a little disappointed that favorites could not be saved locally without going to an internet site on a separate pc). On the plus side, the i-Tuner internet radio service used to setup the favorites on the aforementioned internet site has a rather large radio channel selection.
• The Android Yamaha AV Receiver Controller App works great. It supports control of the receiver with almost the same level of function access as the remote which comes with the receiver. It also supports running music off of the android device with album art displayed on both the android device as well as an HDMI connect monitor.
• Digital Connection of iPod works great! This allows great quality iPod playback plus album art display (for currently playing song only) on an HDMI connect monitor. However, for iPods/iPhones with Wi-Fi access, Airplay is likely to be the preferred method of iPod access.
• 4K pass-through and 4K up scaling appear to be good future-proofing video features. We obviously won't be able to assess the quality of these features until we have some 4K capable monitors. But I applaud Yamaha for thinking ahead on this front.
• USB Media Support works. But I couldn't get it to recognize standard playlist files. So the value of this feature is possibly somewhat limited.
• The Surround Sound and DSP processing is classic Yamaha quality.
• Overall Sound quality is great.
• The YPAO system works great. However, the multi-point YPAO system of the RX-V773 promises to be much more accurate. And without the multi-point YPAO system, I prefer to do the system equalization manually.
• The HDMI to HDMI video processing looks nice.
• HDMI support is great with 6 inputs (one of which is in front) and support for 3D and Audio Return Channel.
• The new GUI is nice and the album art support for most digital media playback is a great addition.

KEY NEGATIVES
• Direct Pandora Support (without an iOS device hosting the Pandora app) is not supported, even though this was supported on the predecessor (RX-V671). There is a rumor that this capability was added to the RX-V773 with a late firmware update provided by Yamaha. And there is another rumor that Yamaha might have a firmware update for the RX-V673 in late summer 2012. But there is no indication on what feature improvements that might or might not provide for the RX-V673.
Note: some forum comments suggest that not having direct Pandora support is not a big issue since Pandora can be played via AirPlay. However, I'd suggest that this issue will still be of concern to some folks, especially those who do not own an iOS device which can be used for hosting a Pandora app. One alternative is the use of a Blu-Ray player which supports the Pandora application. This option is supported with album art presented on the HDMI connected monitor and works well- but does incur the extra setup steps associated with the separate blue-ray device. Additionally, it incurs the inconvenience of not being able to use the same Blu-Ray RX-V673 "scene" as used for video playback (since music playback will require DSP processing of some kind to achieve 7.1 or 5.1 playback instead of the "straight" Dolby Digital processing normally used for video playback).
• There is no Air-Play like feature for Android devices. Music playback from an android device is possible with the Yamaha Receiver Controller app for Android. But it is not quite the same as Airplay, nor will it support Pandora Playback on the android device.

MINOR NEGATIVES
• Pre-Amp outputs, other than for subwoofer, are not provided.
• When the HDMI connected monitor is turned off (for example when playing music and not desiring the receiver monitor output on) the Red HDMI light flashes annoyingly to let you know that the HDMI monitor that you chose to turn OFF is still OFF.
• The YPAO automatic system setup is not multi-point like the RX-V773. Without multi-point averaging, it is very possible that the automated EQ settings could be incorrect due to room reflections which are specific to a given room location. Without multipoint YPAO, I prefer to do manual system setup.

OVERALL SUMMARY
The amp is a huge step forward for anyone upgrading from a non-Network AV receiver. The Internet Radio playback and iOS AirPlay playback "network" capabilities are great and singularly worth an upgrade to the RX-V673. The iPod integration is also excellent- either with direct cable connection or with AirPlay. The new GUI, with album art support for most media, is very nice as well. All of these great new features are well backed up by great sound and video processing resulting in great sound and video quality. So overall, the RX-V673 is a great AV Receiver providing great audio and video with a pile of great new capabilities provided by the Network Receiver capabilities.

I wanted to replace my surround sound AV reciever with one that supports multiple zones. This one does a good job in that respect, but the sound is terrible (too much base) with no way to adjust it.
I believe the "Scene selection" is supposed to be their idea of a preselected equalizer, but I can not notice any difference from one "Scene" to another. This product needs an old style, on screen, graphic equalizer to allow the listener to adjust base, midrange and treble individually.

I purchased this to replace an older Onkyo receiver,for home theater use, that died on me. I was basically pleased with it overall i just needs adjustments on speaker levels from time to time. but in he last couple of months the subwoofer started to produce lots of interference noise and statics. One night I woke up as the house was shaking didn't know whats going on
checked downstairs the sub was going off at the highest volume! unplugged it. the next day checked the sub it checks out OK. So it has to be the receivers sub outlet which I tried both and no change. so now, it makes static noise depending on the frequency played. and the warrant just ran out
very annoying !

          I got this several months ago during a black friday special. I wanted bluetooth but with the special price it was no bother to buy the bluetooth adapter. Plus I was able to use an old wireless router in bridge mode to make it wireless internet. I like everything about the receiver, it's nice to have a modern receiver with hdmi ports.

          My only complaint is that the screen seems to be permanently all fogged up somehow which is annoying, makes it looks worse than it should

          Like really well, after I finally got it set up. Since it came with a CD but no info booklet had to call for assistance. Had a 3 different harmon/kardon recievers and with the booklet was able to set them up. Had a lot of trouble getting any bass, called and they walked me thru it. Also hard to set up the remote until I downloaded the Info booklet.

            This is my first AV receiver. I'm very impressed with it. It has renewed my interest in music & movie watching. My music speakers and movie surround speakers are connected to it. Set up was easy.
            It solved a problem for me. I was having trouble understanding dialog on some movies. On some action scenes, the explosions, special effects, etc., would drown out the dialog.

            This receiver has a feature called "Dialogue Adjust" that increases volume on the voice frequencies as well as raises the volume of the center channel speaker. Now I can hear what is being said & it is much easier to follow the plot in movies.

            Music sounds great because of the many DSP modes as well as the "enhance" feature which improves sound on MP3 & other compressed audio formats.

            I have liked this product very much. I have since added two more floor standing speakers to this receiver. I wish there was a way to directly connect to Pandora from remote control without requiring TV interface.

              This replaced a 25 year old Yamaha receiver. The set-up was easy even for a non-techie. The number of HDMI connections for TV, Roku, DVD players, etc. make it a great option for a home theater system.

                  Dear....GOD! What a product the RX-V673 is! My wife upgraded my 10 year old 6.1 Yamaha receiver to this 7.2 Monster of a Receiver (although I'm now only set up with 5 Speakers and a Sub)! I literally have NO complaints about this product, and I'm very particular about my electronics.

                  Things I love the most..
                  1. YPAO, super easy to use, and is the very first thing you should do after getting your receiver connected. This will really allow your receiver go full throttle!
                  2. Dialog Adjuster! Having a hard time hearing the dialog in a movie or TV show? No need to crank the volume and hurt everyone's ears, simply hit the options button on your remote and go to Dialog Adjust, this allows you to increase the level of dialog up 3 levels - really helps! Especially those that are hard of hearing.
                  3. AirPlay - So convenient, and handy!
                  4. SiriusXM - I have an account, simply log in via Receiver & ENJOY.
                  5. Lastly...the quality of sound! The amount of activity I now hear in my rear channels is unbelievable! Even my wife noticed when we watch a Blu-ray movie how vastly enhanced it is. Something I never paid too much attention to before is the Musical Score in films. This Receiver really allows your front to channels to pump out the score in films, really adds to the quality of the movie.

                  This is worth every penny! Now stop reading this and go make your purchase!
