Yamaha RX-V667 Review – Can’t Beat the Sound

To start Yamaha RX-V667 review with its level of price should be mentioned. It’s a low-cost dual-zone AV with the credible quality, top-notch sound, and lots of network functions as DLNA, Pandora, and internet radio. The AVR has full 7-channel pre-out to use with the external power amps. It gives 90W per channel and produces crisp sound, clear high tones, good surround effects, and a cool bass sound reproduction. The device has plenty of power to get the job done, including the great upscaling of videos.

Design

The device is remarkable for its full switching set and the HDMI port on the front panel. Otherwise, the design is laconic and minimalistic. The only standout element is the huge volume button on the right. The input selector has the form of the pair of keys for pressing them in order to toggle the terminals. AV port and HDMI input are on the front panel as well, and plugs close them. As for the measuring microphone plug, it is left in the open on the front panel.

Characteristics

The set of Yamaha RX-V667 specs provides the decent sound and make the device easy to use for both music, movies, and games.

Performance

The AV provides a default volume when the power is on, so no need to configure on a per input basis. The HDMI system with ARC works perfectly between the receiver and television. The device is able to decode all the current HD audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Sound Quality

The sound is clear and well defined even in upper-volume settings. It is also nice defined low end without being overbearing. So, the Yamaha RX-V667’s sound presets are more than adequate and it is possible to scroll through them easily with the remote and choose what sounds are the best for the certain film or game.

The DRC tech increases the loudness of the voices while making other sounds’ loudness lower. PLL scheme helps make the sound even and the IntelliAmp tech allows using the receiver for the double amplifying to connect the second zone or to create the surround background sound.

Connectivity

USB is on board with the support of many formats – WMA, MP3, FLAC, etc. There are quite enough HDMI inputs to connect a bunch of devices. Though the Yamaha YDS11 doc is optional, it worth purchasing to play the iPhone or iPad through the entertainment system.

Setup

The network control app is compatible with either iOS or Android devices. The only issue is the lack of the on-screen control option in the app. The input switching is very fast on the remote. HDMI ports make a good cable setup behind the AV. In general, the setup is very easy and integrated with Apple TV, Blu-ray, Tivo, etc without a problem. Note that there is no option to turn the internal amps off when the external ones are used.

Conclusion

A great affordable receiver will last you a long time. It meets all the requirements for those who want to upgrade the home theatre systems. It provides a lot of power to work great in the large rooms. The amazing number of connections make the device really versatile.
