"Overall excellence."5.0 starson by zdoctor
Pros: Everything about the RX-V667 is a Pro. The unti runs a lot cooler than what i thought it would.
Cons: None that I can find after 2 months of ownership. The RX-V can be a bit pricey compared to its compitition.
Summary: Like the CNet reveiw says, this might be more receiver then you need. After almost 3 months of ownership i am still learning things about it and how it works and all the cool things it does and im sure i have only scratched the sufface. The RX-V667 is both simplistic and complicated while being fastinating all at the same time.
The sound quality is excellent at any prierange. If it were to have a draw back, and im reaching for this one, is that is does not have and ethernet port for internet connectiviety. I am finding all the internet stuff that CE devices come with are redundant. My Tivo gets Pandora and Rhapsody and my BRP gets those and Hulu and a lot more and my TV gets more than both of the other 2 so it does not matter if my receiver connects to the internet, everything else does already. At itsa rated 90 watts per channel it is the lowest powered received i have owned in the last 20 years but i am finding it more then powerful enough to make movies and TV very enjoyable. It also carries enough power (for me at least) to listen to 2 channle stero really loud and really clean.
Keep in mind the RX-V667 can be found both online and in stores if your savvy for well below what they are listed at and below $400.
