Been After thinking about a new AV reciever for a little while and could not resist this deal. The £349.99 price is the going rate for this at the moment with all the companies I looked at like Richer Sounds but with their Topcashback launch offer of 10.1% cashback (think Quidco is also available) it makes it effectively approx £315!!
The Yamaha RXV667 AV receiver is packed full of features to help you get the very best out of your home entertainment.
Sound is given a serious makeover with support for a 7.1 surround sound setup, with each channel delivering 90W of power (630W in total). The 7.1 system gives you the option of having an even more enveloping sound (compared to a 5.1 setup) or using the additional amplifiers for bi-amping, giving you tighter, even more accurate sound.
The Yamaha RXV667 AV receiver supports HD audio formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, so your Blu-ray discs sound exactly how they should and you experience your film's audio as you would at the cinema.
On top of that, the Yamaha RXV667 AV receiver comes with 17 Digital Signal Processor modes and a one-button SCENE setting feature, so you can adjust the settings to suit your audio sources. This is useful, because as well as enhancing the audio on your films and video games, you can attach your MP3, vinyl player and headphones and listen to your favourite music. A compressed music enhancer further improves your digital music, bringing out some of the detail lost in compressed files.
Back to your film's audio, and a Dialogue Lift feature means you never miss any of the on-screen dialogue, because speech is enhanced so it can be heard over other in-film sound. There's also an Audio Delay, for adjusting any lip-syncing that doesn't quite match up.
Ensuring you get the best sound settings during set up is easy, thanks to the YPAO Automatic System Calibration, which uses a small microphone to set the best sound for any room, regardless of where you put the speakers. You can even wire up speakers in another room, so that while somebody watches a film in one room, you can listen to music in another.
Besides all the great audio features, the Yamaha RXV667 AV receiver features upscaling to 1080p, so even your DVDs will look fantastic. It has six HDMI inputs, including a 3D compatible socket, and one HDMI output, so you should easily be able to connect all of your HD devices and experience home cinema in your front room.
