THIS RECEIVER HAS THE "EASY FUNCTION" SET BUTTONS IN THE FRONT FOR PEOPLE NOT "TECHNICALLY INCLINED" FOR AN UNDERSTANDING OF
DIGITAL RECEIVERS. IT BASICALLY HAS "IDIOT BUTTONS" IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW YO READ THE DIRECTIONS TO THE MANUAL. VERY SIMPLE AND COMES WITH A UNIVERSAL TYPE OF REMOTE. I USUALLY BUY SONY
PRODUCTS BUT THIS IS ONE "SWEET" RECEIVER WITH ALL THE DSP,DOLBY,STEREO FUNCTIONS(ALL IN HIGH POWER)
I just had to upgrade my Sony A/V STR-970. I needed HDMI in a big way. Downsizing to a smaller entertainment center, I really needed to clean up a few secret treasures concealed by my bigger cabinet.
So, the hunt was on for the best A/V Home Theater receiver for the buck.
I found a Yamaha RX-V567 $479 MSRP for $215 Free S+H. The specs and reviews were spot on. The 567 was to become the mothership of my home theater.
The 567 took on my 26" Vizio flat screen, Panasonic Blue Ray and Klipsch Synergy Theater Fronts, Center, SS and back speakers in exquisite fashion. No background noise, no hum just pure near audiophile quality sound with enough power to blow all the speakers if I sit on the remote volume button by mistake.
If the receiver had more HDMI and optical outputs, I would like it even more. If it had a SNR of 130 and a THD of .003%, I would be swinging from the chandaliers but so would my checkbook.
The 567 controls the homogenous performance of my theater group and is worthy of all rave reviews, including mine. I am legally blonde but this thing was easy to set up by following along with the manual. If you get a rtefurb you can get the manual free on the Yamaha site and fire it up on the lap top with a glass of wine. So if all else fails, get something to drink, read the manual and you'll get it going on in no time flat. I did it when Iwasn't in a rush. I even had fun setting it up (the reisling helped) Go getcha one...............Roxi
I bought this unit to upgrade to HDMI. I had a Yamaha unit that perfored well but was not equipped for High Definition. It seems to be a great and flexible unit. It performs great in my home theater setting.
GREAT SYSTEM AND A GREAT PRICE. Very easy to set up and all worked well. Sound quality is the best. remote works well with other systems. I would recomend this unit to others. Shop for price as prices can go from a-z Gppd luck and happy listening.
I am using this receiver in my Man Cave to drive Paradigm Cinema Speakers. The receiver is very easy to use and with the speakers, sounds awesome.
excellent for people who loves not just music but also for movies. It takes a lot of learning to do but you'll eventually figure it out.
