From the Manufacturer

The Yamaha RX-V671 7.1-Channel Audio/Video Receiver offers many advanced home theater features including 6-in/1-out HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel compatibility, HD Audio, and SCENE function. Bring movies and music to life with 7.1 channels of pure surround sound. The RX-V671 adds the power of intelligent front presence effects to your multichannel audio. Combined with Yamaha's advanced exclusive technologies such as CINEMA DSP and Adaptive Dynamic Range Control, you can enjoy the most immersive audio experience yet from your favorite entertainment. Use the included mic and Yamaha's YPAO Optimization setup wizard to make setting up your 7.1-channel system easy.

Amplifier flexibility is also a key feature of the RX-V671. You can add a second 2-channel stereo audio zone (Zone 2). Or, if you don't have a 7.1 speaker system, the receiver can be bi-amped to a pair of main front speakers.

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. It's also Windows 7 and DLNA 1.5 certified which allows access to music files on any computer or local NAS drive content available on your home network

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.

1080p-Compatible HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel

Improve your home cinema experience with 105 watts per channel of powerful 7.1-channel surround sound, with the latest HD Audio format decoding: Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio. The 1080p-compatible HDMI (6 in/1 out) supports Deep Color (30/36 bit), x.v.Color, 24 Hz Refresh Rate and Auto Lip-Sync compensation, as well as the latest HDMI features like 3D and Audio Return Channel.

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.


SILENT CINEMA, a variation of Yamaha's CINEMA DSP technology, makes it possible to 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.

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.

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.

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. Push a SCENE button to automatically launch play of the preset source. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, XM Listening, TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browse and select the settings 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 (0-240ms).

The Yamaha YPAO
Included microphone designed for YPAO helps you easily set up your speaker system
YPAO Sound Optimization

YPAO sound optimization for automatic speaker setup lets you set up your surround sound speakers simply and easily. An included microphone designed for YPAO will help you set up your speakers for optimal performance, no matter the room.

After reading a number of good and fairly good reviews, I decided to pick one of these up to replace my older Yamaha receiver. My other one had served me very well but it was time to move up to HDMI.

My criteria for a new receiver were the following:
- Ability to take all my input devices: PS3, XBOX360, XBOX, DVD Player
- One HDMI connection to the TV to avoid having to change TV's input back/forth
- At least a 5.1 system, with ability to go up to 7.1
- Ability to watch the inputs with the Receiver on or off
- Since my older Yamaha receiver had it, the ability to tune the speakers automatically

Reading the reviews, there were some comments about Yamaha having cut out the support for pre-out. As long as I was concerned, this receiver still has a "pre-out" for the sub-woofer and any other pre-outs aren't necessary. Pre-outs aren't needed for somebody who wants more than the basic home theater systems offer but is not an audiophiliac.
This receiver is great for all I wanted.
- 6 HDMI inputs for all my devices
- Ability to pass through the HDMI even when the unit is in standby. This is off by default and has to be turned on
- Ability to upscale Component input to HDMI so the old Xbox can be connected
- Comes with a Yamaha microphone for setting up the speakers automatically. This is a nice feature since it tunes the output to speakers to adjust for audio level, delay, etc
- It supports 7.1, but isn't really needed. As far as I can tell, all my xbox360 and ps3 games are 5.1.
- This receiver also supports either a second zone, or "presence" speakers. Neither of which I care about .

Couple of nice surprises after hooking up the receiver.

We were in the market to replace our old (10+ yrs) but trusty Denon 1801 to move into a modern updated unit with the latest connections and mainly BR sound with DTS-HD and True-HD. Like the Denon I looked for reviews and mainly reader feedback. I picked at least one model from the mjor manufactures...Onkyo, Pioneer, Denon, Harmon Kardon and Yamaha. I came away with two out of the list..Yamaha RX-V667 and Denon AVR-891 (same as 2311CI). Both fit my list of needs and budget. I did look at the newer RX-V671 but being new was out of my price range. But the day I made my choice, which was the Denon 891, it went off sale. The next day a RX-V671 "open box" got listed at almost the same price and I grabbed it.

Yamaha's as long as I can remember alwy have had good sound. They don't get the same reconignition as Denon or the amount of mega reviews of Onko but they've alwys been fairly good. They made great strides since the 'RX-Vx65" series with the "x67" series last year. And the newer line of the RX-Vx71's improve on it.

One thing you can count on from Yamaha is n abundant of sound fields and choices. This 671 carries on that tradition. The sound is clean and clear thanks to the 7 channel discrete amps. Besides HD Audio with Cinima DSP 3D and it's 17 programs Yamaha offers a unique "7.1 w/Presence Speaker" setup which I'm using. It's basically a 5.1 with two added speakers preferably on the outside of the main fronts. It addsa more deminson of sound to the listener. The Presence Speakers are set at about 35% instead of 100% to fill in in. I'm sold on it and can tell the difference.

While Denon and Onkyo uses the highly touted 'Audyssey' for sound fine tuning Yamaha has it's own YPAO.

I bought this receiver recently after trying Yamaha v667 and Denon 2311CI. This one simply blew the other two away... particularly Denon, which to my ears didn't sound impressive.
* stunning sound - crisp, clear. currently hooked up with Harman Kardon HTKS 30BQ
* quality onscreen menu, very easy to use
* network player, plays music from ipod, iphone and mp3 from usb flash drive
* 1080p upscale output, support for 3D and ARC

Yet to come across any con so far... I love this receiver a lot.

After reading several glowing reviews and seeing the Apple TV offered free with this unit, I ordered it and received it from UPS looking like it had just survived WWIII. I've always respected Yamaha for it's reputation for durability and after surviving everything UPS could dish out, it's apparently well-deserved. Everything seemed fine after I hooked it up, but I'd recommend against having it shipped with the UPS gorillas. The Apple TV arrived the same day, and I was so excited I took the next day off from work to set them both up. This unit replaced a trusty old Denon that had just become obsolete by outliving its connections and performed flawlessly its entire 15 year life.

The set up, as others have reported, was indeed easy and stress-free with the YPS system and sounded incredible. My 5.1 system never sounded better and I had planned to use my old Phase Linear amp in the next room on my Boston Acoustics tower speakers where we listen to most of our music. That's where I ran into the first problem. despite the RCA outs, Zone Two on this unit does NOT support an amp that needs volume control (like my old Denon did). So, goodbye 120 watts good old clean sound, hello 70 watts of new Yamaha sound. No big deal, I thought, and frankly I can't hear the difference. Maybe I'll pick up a good pre-amp later for the listening room.

The next problem involved the same feature: Zone 2. Yamaha's idea, apparently, was to provide an inferior listening experience in Zone 2, with fewer options and lower quality. In that goal they have succeeded admirably. None of the HDMI or other digital inputs work with Zone 2.
