Yamaha's RX-V667 is a 3D Capable A/V Receiver Print E-mail
Wednesday, 16 June 2010
ImageThe latest receiver to come from Yamaha is pretty capable considering the price.  The RX-V667 is a 7.1 channel receiver that puts out 90W to each channel.  It's HDMI 1.4 equipped with six inputs and one output, and supports both 3D and Audio Return Channel. The 667 decodes all current HD audio formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and can be configured as a traditional 7.1 channel receiver or as a 5.1 channel receiver with two height channels. It's got features like Adaptive Dynamic Range Control, which raises the volume of voices when the overall system volume is turned down, and Adaptive DSP, which adjusts DSP level based on master volume setting.  

It uses jitter-free PLL circuitry for sound, and thanks to IntelliAmp technology, you can assign amplifiers for bi-amping, surround back sound or as a Zone 2 connection.  You can add iPod and Bluetooth support with accessories sold separately.  The Yamaha RX-V667 hasn't been dated yet, but when it's available, the MSRP will be set at $599.
