View Larger

1080p-Compatible HDMI Repeater with 3D
The Yamaha RX-V367 has HDMI repeater functionality, with 4 inputs and 1 output, ready to pass content from all your high-definition sources to your HDTV. And thanks to the latest HDMI technology, the RX-V367 is HDMI 3D-ready with a simple firmware upgrade--making you ready for the next generation of "next generation" content.

The RX-V367 Supports Deep Color (30/36-bit) Transmission
The Yamaha RX-V367 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-V367 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).

SCENE buttons automatically launch play
of the source controlled by that button

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

    We had a very old audio only receiver and were looking to replace it (almost 10 year old technics). We picked up the Yamaha RX-V367, even though there were no reviews, since the receiver was just released, and it was in our price range (200 to 300). So far we are happy with the new receiver; it is connected to the satellite box, xbox, and blu ray.

    Speaker set up: Set of Polk Rti8 (left right and center), and klipsch Klipsch Synergy Series SS.5 rear surround (left and right). The sound coming from the speakers was MUCH better than from our ancient receiver.

    Not a fan of the Sound Field Programs, seems too much like a gimmick, and only adds an echo depending on what setting (one setting might effect the vocals more, or another setting might effect the music), but I imagine some people would enjoy that. Has many audio processing options, works great with Netflix streaming, set it to 5ch stereo and it will work great; can clearly listen to what's playing (netflix only streams in 2ch stereo). Mainly use the "Straight" audio processing setting (for xbox and blu ray), I assume the receiver doesn't add any extra "audio goo", and plays direct from the source.

    Good video quality, no noticeable video deterioration. Yamaha says it's compatible with HDMI 1.4 and will support 3D (with a firmware upgrade). Not that interested in 3d TVs anyways.

    Clear and easy to use menu system (compared to my old technics receiver), competent directions, fairly user friendly.

    Has 4 HDMI inputs which was much better than many of the competitors in the same price range. We didn't test the FM/AM tuner, and only connected HDMI and RCA from computer. We were also swayed by the extra bluetooth adapter so we can listen to music (and hopefully stream Hulu audio) wirelessly from the computer (and get rid of the airport express). Will update review after getting bluetooth.

    I rarely do reviews - but here I must make an exception. I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a quality receiver to complement a Blu-ray player. I had an older Denon receiver which delivered great sound, but when the Blu-ray movies started arriving from Netflix, I found most of them required a DTS decoder which was absent in the Denon. After considerable research, I stumbled onto the new line of Yamaha receivers. I was a bit dubious, having always previously owned Denon and Sony, but the specs looked good, and the price was unbelievable, so I took the plunge.

    After a month or so of use, I have no regrets. The sound quality I am getting from my 5.1 Polks far exceeds the prior system. Sounds are richer, brighter, and the surround has more separation and clarity. For a 100 W per channel system, the power consumption appears amazingly low - the top of the receiver just gets barely warm, not hot. The speaker setup works well, and the movie and music presets, as well as the enhanced 5 ch stereo are outstanding, really enhancing the audio of the corresponding input. The display is large enough to see from the viewing chair, is clean and simple, and keeps the viewer appropriately informed.

    I applaud Yamaha for producing such a high quality product at a value price-point.

    I've had this Yamaha for a few months now, and I am quite happy with it. I bought it to replace an ancient Aiwa 5.1 that was dying on me. The Yamaha is a very flexible unit and much more full-featured and configurable than anything I have owned before. If you don't have much experience with surround sound receivers, keep the instruction manual close (tip: print it from the CD) while configuring it to suit your tastes. That's because you can configure each speaker individually, plus there are many sound field options to choose from (for both video and music environments). You can literally fiddle with settings for hours because there are so many options. I know I did!

    One thing I noticed is that in the reviews here, a couple of people were having trouble getting the sound the way they liked it. As it turns out they didn't know about the bass and treble controls that are accessible on the front panel of the unit. Here's how to use the bass and treble controls: Look for the small "tone control" button on the front panel. This selects bass or treble. Then use the "program" left and right arrow buttons, directly to the right of the "tone control" button, to adjust bass and treble to your preference. I used these bass and treble controls to set a "baseline" desired frequency output, then I tweaked them slightly using the individual channel EQ settings. Worked like a charm. What you'll find is that the individual channel EQ settings work off of whatever your bass and treble are set at. Out of the box, the bass and treble are preset at 0 (i.e. totally flat), so your EQ settings don't have much to vary up and down with. I was having doubts about the sound quality of the receiver until I realized it had these bass and treble settings to give the EQ settings something to work with.
