Yamaha RX-V667 Receiver: A New World of Functionality and ConnectivityEnjoy the latest in true high-definition entertainment with the Yamaha RX-V667 Audio/Video Receiver. In addition to full compatibility with the latest hi-def audio and video codecs, the RX-V667 offers true 1080p upscaling, plenty of HDMI inputs for all your devices, multizone support, and more--all along with the custom features you'd expect from a Yamaha receiver, such as SCENE setup, YPAO sound optimization, and Virtual CINEMA DSP.
6 HMDI inputs (including one front input) give you maximum flexibility
View Back Panel
The Yamaha RX-V667 is the latest in true high-definition entertainment
Six HDMI inputs (including one front input) and two analog video inputs give you maximum flexibility in your home theater setup�all with true 1080p video upscaling. Support for the latest HDMI 1.4 specification gives you rich, 3D video quality with Deep Color, x.v. Color, and Auto Lip-Sync compensation.
Advanced GUI and iPod Album Art Support and Compressed Music Enhancer
When connected to your flat-panel HDTV via HDMI, an advanced GUI overlay becomes available to control your home theater simply and easily. When your iPod or iPhone is connected to the Yamaha RX-V667 via a supported Yamaha iPod dock (sold separately), you can listen to your digital music with Compressed Music Enhancer and view album art while playing.
Compressed Music Enhancer is a sophisticated type of digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to improve the performance of compressed music formats such as 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.
Seven Channels of High-Definition Surround-Sound Audio
The RX-V667 receiver offers 90 watts per channel of rich, high-definition audio with support for the latest sound decoders like HD Audio, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio. Its discrete amp configuration minimizes signal interference, further enhanced by low-jitter PLL circuitry. The RX-V667's intelligent assignable amplifiers let you perfect your surround sound setup or push a signal to a Zone 2 connection for enjoying in another room.
Achieve Surround Realism with CINEMA DSP
Conventional multichannel 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 from ideally located in these separate sound fields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence.
Hear large-scale sound through
headphones with SILENT CINEMA
SILENT CINEMA makes it possible to hear large-scale surround sound through ordinary headphones. This variation of CINEMA DSP technology lets 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.
SCENE buttons automatically launch an operation
that will play the source controlled by that button
YPAO uses this microphone to analyze room acoustics and
automatically set the best sound for any room
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 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.
Automatic Speaker Setup and Calibration with YPAO
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, until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room.

also analog (480i) to 1080p conversion is pretty decent... picture quality has improved...the advantage is having to run only a single hdmi cable to the TV
I have been using this receiver for 2 weeks now...there are couple of issues...lip sync problem while playing blu ray movies..there is a sync adjustment... but this happened in between the movie and I had to keep adjusting it ...alternate option is to stop playing and then restart it again...then there was no lag.....also noticed sound will pass for about a sec couple of times....I expect at this price to have a better product...another issue is with updating firmware..it is straight forward but a lengthy process...should be able to do this using USB instead of burning audio CDs!!!...it worked fine though..
its more than a month now...works flawlessly...I played lot of blu ray movies and there was no lip synch issue ...I guess the one that had problem might be because of disc issues.....planning to buy two more speakers to try second zone feature..overall very happy to own it..
have been using this receiver for one year now...no issues so far.....also happy to see that the current selling price is only couple of dollars lower compared to what I spent a year ago..can you believe it? :-)
Skipping the 665 model was a good thing.
This one has a great on screen GUI for changing the settings.
It's an overlay, so you don't lose the video in the background when changing settings.
It pops out from the left side and then you scroll up and down to pick the setting
to change. Then those options are popped up from the bottom of the screen and you scroll
right and left.
6 HDMI is more than enough for me, in fact I have 3 left over after changing out things.
Biggest advantage is I am now able to plug in everything in to the receiver and able to change
the label that shows up on the receiver and the tv screen when changing sources.
My components running into the receiver are as follows
Computer with HDMI interface
(radeon 5770 so I get sound and audio)
These next two are connected via Component video (R,G,B)
Xbox 360 (optical out for audio)
To run all these the Remote has 5 HDMI buttons and 6 AV buttons.
I can actually choose each source independently with one button, kind of nice.
I also have the YDS11 Ipod dock, it works great with the new receiver. Interface is greatly improved
with album art being shown to the left of the song title on the screen and browsing capabilty. This really looks a lot better than it did on the RX-V663 and is another overlay screen. Now they just need a good screen saver to go with it.
This would all be worthless if the sound quality did not match up with the 663.
Big one for me was continued support of DSD across HDMI. The Oppo BDP-83 plays SACD disks and so does
my PS3.Read more ›
Before I made the purchase, I called Yamaha's customer service guys and asked them a few questions and they were able to answer everything for me. I got right to a person who spoke English and they knew their products (and actually said they had a full lab for testing stuff).
So I bought the receiver and hooked it up to my 3D TV setup, along with my Wii (component), X-box 360 (HDMI), DirecTV DVR (HDMI), Yamaha YDS-12 iPod dock and 3D Blu-ray player (HDMI). It was easy to install and I still have plenty of HDMI inputs left for future expansion. I ran the YPAO auto setup and it was over before I came back from getting a snack in the kitchen. It properly detected all of my 7.2 speakers and everything appears to be working as intended.
I must say that I really love the onscreen GUI menu. It's an animated display that overlays on top of whatever I'm watching, including the 3D content from DirecTV and my BD player.
I wanted a receiver with a powered Zone 2 so I could run a pair of speakers on my porch and this receiver handles that task no problem. Setup was easy, I just followed the PDF owner's manual that came in the box.
I haven't tried the HDMI Audio Return Channel yet, but I do plan on using it in the future.
Lipsynch problem: It's your player or your disc or Netflix, not the receiver.
Sound sucks: No, your speakers suck. Why would you buy a $400+ receiver and use cheap speakers.
Customer service is terrible: I wouldn't know. In my opinion most customer service sucks. I just google the problem.
Setup is too complicated: I guess this depends on the individual and the setup. For me, speakers go into the speaker jacks and HDMI goes into the HDMI jacks. I'm a tech nerd though, so I read the manual front to back so I know what it is capable of and how to do it.
Tip for console users (Xbox and PS3): make sure HDMI settings are on bit-stream. Let the receiver do the decoding, not the console.
Update on the Consoles: I noticed that I was not getting full 7.1 on Blu-rays when I should have been. It turns out that the old shiny black PS3 doesn't stream DTS-HD, so I changed it to a linear conversion and it worked great. I've learned that the newer flat-black PS3 does bit-stream the 7.1. In summary: Old PS3 - Linear PCM, New PS3 - Bit-stream.
