From the Manufacturer

The Yamaha RX-V567 Receiver: 7-Channel Amplification and the Latest HDMI Technology


***3D Compatible with Firmware Upgrade

Since the 1960's, Yamaha's audio/video electronics engineers have endeavored to produce products and services that satisfy the diverse needs of musicians and audiophiles. Yamaha's products and services are recognized the world over for superior quality in acoustics, design, technology, craftsmanship, and customer service, resulting in a reputation for excellence among musicians, music lovers, and home theater enthusiasts.

The Yamaha RX-V567 brings high-performance 7-channel amplification along with the latest in HDMI functionality, including 3D-ready support (with firmware upgrade) and Audio Return Channel, plus advanced HD Audio decoding with CINEMA DSP, YPAO, and SCENE technologies for ease-of-use.


Advanced Features


Connect to the RX-V567 via Bluetooth with the YBA-10
or connect your iPod/iPhone with the YDS-12

Expand Your Yamaha System with Convenient Connectivity
The optional YDS-12 Universal Dock lets you connect your iPod or iPhone to the receiver. And the YDS-12 is "Works with iPhone"-certified, so you can get the most out of your iPhone music library with zero hassles.

The optional YBA-10 Bluetooth Wireless Audio Receiver docks to the receiver and supports A2DP stereo audio streaming, so users can enjoy music wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, Windows PCs, and Macs.


The RX-V567 features HDMI CEC functionality and 3D capabilities
View Larger

1080p-Compatible HDMI (4 In/1 Out) with 3D and Audio Return Channel
The Yamaha RX-V567 is 1080p HDMI compatible, with 4 inputs and 1 output, ready to handle all your high-definition sources. And thanks to the latest HDMI technology, the RX-V467 is HDMI 3D-ready with a simple firmware upgrade--making you ready for the next generation of "next generation" content. It also supports an audio return channel, which enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection when you have multiple sources connected to your TV.

HDMI CEC Functionality
One of the channels in an HDMI connection is dedicated to a set of advanced control functions, collectively known as CEC. In Yamaha receivers, CEC functionality allows connected devices to control each other in useful ways. For instance, a single command on a remote control can be used to play a DVD, or to launch other complex activities across multiple devices in a home theater system.

HDMI Digital Signal Upscaling and Deinterlacing
This is a function that upscales analog composite and component 480i or 480p signals to 1080i/720p HD signals or even 1080p Full HD signals so they can be output digitally with an HDMI cable and viewed at highest quality on high-definition displays. In addition, the analog video signals are deinterlaced from 480i to 480p and are output over an HDMI cable.

The RX-V567 Supports Deep Color (30/36-bit) Transmission
The Yamaha RX-V567 supports the latest HDMI 30- and 36-bit color depths, improved from the 24-bit depth of previous versions. This "Deep Color" allows the rendering of billions of colors for far greater accuracy. Colors are so vivid they seem to jump off the screen, with perfectly smooth tonal transitions and ultra-fine gradations between colors. It also enables many times more shades of gray, for higher contrast ratio.

Three New Volume Controls
The RX-V567 has three new volume features. Volume Trim adjust the volume of every input to normalize your volume across all your connected sources. Initial Volume allows you to tune to a preset volume level every time your receiver is turned on. Max Volume lets you set your own maximum volume, to help prevent "blowing out" smaller speakers (like satellite speakers).

On-Screen Display Makes Navigation Easy
An On-Screen Display is available on the RX-V567, letting you use easy-to-understand menus for selecting and adjusting receiver functions--such as a Speaker Test mode that makes it easy to balance the levels of all speakers, video upconversion selection, and DSP programs. A rotary encoder Input Selector makes source selection quick and easy.


SCENE buttons automatically launch play

YPAO sets your speakers for you

SCENE: A New Level of Operating Ease
Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for DVD Viewing, Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button automatically launches a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, XM Listening, TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browsing and selecting the settings is quickly accomplished by rotating the Input knob and watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for one-time use, or they can replace the original default settings. You can even change the SCENE names for convenience.

YPAO Sound Optimization for Automatic Speaker Setup
Yamaha's YPAO Sound Optimization system analyzes the acoustics of the room and adjusts various speaker parameters to provide optimum sound quality at the listening position--all in less than three minutes. 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. It does this until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room, and you don't have to adjust a thing. The RX-V567 features the YPAO system that automatically selects the crucial frequency bands for the listening room, and then adjusts the level of the selected bands to create a cohesive sound field in the room.

Audio Delay Compensation Keeps Your Experience On Track
The latest display devices perform complex internal processing, causing time lag in the video signal. It is a small difference, but because the audio arrives first, the viewer may feel that something is not natural. The Audio Delay function for adjusting Lip-Sync matches the audio to the timing of the output of the video on the screen (0-240ms).


Surround Realism

CINEMA DSP Digital for Enhanced Surround Realism
Conventional multi-channel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent sound fields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects ideally located in these separate sound fields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater. The decoding circuitry performs Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround decoding with extreme accuracy, as well as all digital sound field processing.

Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
Yamaha's Adaptive DRC technology automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume that is selected. Adaptive DRC refines the dynamic range parameters to make low volume sounds easier to hear (narrower dynamic range) while retaining the massiveness felt during high volume (wider dynamic range). And because our ears lose sensitivity to low and high sounds as volume decreases, it continually adjusts these frequency ranges according to the volume and to the input signal level.


Large scale surround
in your headphones

SILENT CINEMA and Virtual CINEMA DSP
SILENT CINEMA makes it possible to hear large-scale surround sound through ordinary headphones! This is a variation of CINEMA DSP technology that Yamaha developed to let you listen in private to movies and other multi-channel sources for hours without listening fatigue. Virtual CINEMA DSP lets you enjoy the effects of CINEMA DSP surround sound without using surround speakers (handy for use in custom installations where some rooms don't have surround speakers). It can be used with the front / center / presence speakers or even with just the two front left and right speakers.

Compressed Music Enhancer Refreshes Your Music
Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3 and WMA. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.

    When my old TV died I replaced it with a new HD LCD. One of the things that bothered me was audio sync with the picture. I started checking into the problem and found that the sound being sent to my faithful old Technics receiver was being decoded faster than the video sent to the TV was. After some research and listening at local retailers I decided on the Yamaha RX-V567.

    Here is why:
    -HDMI 1.3 compatible. Syncs audio and video for high definition sources.
    -Passive HDMI switching. Switches sources even when the receiver is off.
    -Scene settings. Allows you to set an input, sound field program, initial volume level, etc for each of 4 scene buttons.
    -YPAO. Makes setup of speaker levels a snap. Not so great for setting equalizer settings though - but that's just an opinion.
    -Sound delay. Up to 320 ms sound delay that can be set manually.
    -Direct Sound Processing Mode. Shuts off all unused portions of the receiver and processes surround stream using only the DAC and amplifier.
    -Customizable Input labels. Set a custom label for any input.
    -Tons of customizable options from setting speaker impedance, to allowing the use of multiple remotes, to an 8 band parametric equalizer that can be set differently for each input. As a matter of fact there are so many options that after a month of owning the receiver I don't think I have seen them all. Don't feel intimidated by this though, the receiver is configured so you won't need to mess with a whole lot of this stuff if you don't want to.
    -Yamaha amplifiers. Awesome sound and plenty of volume.
    -DAC processes a ton of digital standards up to and including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD and switches automatically or can be set for each source.

    I've spent almost the entire year shopping for receivers & speakers to replace my Logitech Z-5500 (a nice, affordable package, THX certified even, but very limited inputs and no Dolby TrueHD decoding). I'd get close to deciding on a receiver, but then could never decide on a which speakers to match it with. I also didn't like the idea of having to fork out over $1,000 to get a decent system together. Then one day Amazon offered this in a combo with the Klipsch HD 500 Home Theater System. It was an offer too good to refuse, so I took the plunge. No regrets whatsoever. A major improvement over the Logitech system. Has all the inputs and outputs you could possibly dream of. Decodes everything, sound is phenomenal. I have my PS3 plugged in via HDMI, then HDMI to TV. Gaming and movie heaven. Includes a mic to auto-configure the sound, although I prefer tweaking the settings myself (each speaker output has its own graphic equalizer that can be set using your HDMI-connected TV to navigate the Yamaha's menus). There is a firmware update to enable 3D pass-through. I installed it, but haven't tried it (no 3D TV). I also bought the iPod docking station separately, which works great, I use it all the time.

    My only complaint: no speaker wire came with the speakers or receiver, so I had to buy my own. Be sure to get the best wire you can find. Maybe some banana plugs as well.

    I recently setup a surround sound system for my parents. I got the Yamaha RX-V567BL as a bundle through Amazon with a Klipsch HD 500 surround sound speaker package. I was more interested in the Klipsch speakers than the receiver, but since they would need one anyway, getting the Yamaha for basically free was a deal you can't pass up. I personally prefer Denon receivers, but have also had Pioneer and Sony ones in the past. I would rate this one pretty comparable to the Sony or the Pioneer.

    After setting it up it was pretty clear to me that Yamaha has designed this receiver to appeal to the average user. The setup is fast and straight forward, and it is easy for my parents to navigate. I had their full home theater system setup in about 1.5 hours including running the audio setup for the speakers. Yamaha had a pretty easy automated setup system for the speakers using the included microphone. I did do a little fine tuning of the speakers after the automated setup, but overall it did a decent job.

    I hooked up their DVD player and DishNetwork DVR to the receiver using Digital Optical Audio cables and used the HDMI monitor port to pass the video of HDMI, component and composite (RCA) devices to the TV. The upcovert of analog composite signals was a nice feature.

    I cranked the system pretty hard after setup to make sure the system didn't over heat and turn off like some receivers have done to me in the past. I was pretty impressed that it seemed to hold it's own.

    My parents don't have a 3D TV so I can't rate the quality of 3D pass through of the receiver.

    Overall, this turned out to be a great receiver. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to setup a basic home theater system. Best of all, my parents absolutely love it!

    This is my second Yamaha receiver and the last one cost almost twice as much. Yamaha has been a reliable brand that has never disappointed me and after having an Onkyo, won't ever stray again.

    More than enough power unless you are in a seriously designed for home theatre customized room. Easy to use and pure clean sound for a great price!

    I don't have an ipod yet but will be getting one and already found the dock to control it for less than $60 on Amazon. Can't wait to get this into the equation.

    HDMI automatically can detect new signals and switch by itself which is a very nice feature. Whether you are looking at just getting into home theatre for the first time or have been into it for years you will be very happy with the results of this model.
