I am looking at getting in on the Buy.com sale today for the 667 (it's $378.99 with free shipping). This will replace my Harman Kardon AVR-435, which while great, doesn't have HDMI or support the lossless codecs.
I am hooking up a PS3 for Blu-Ray (HDMI), a FiOS DVR (HDMI), a Wii (Component video/RCA sound), and my XBOX 360 (Component/Optical).
Got a quick question....I really want to eliminate as many cables as I can. This may be a dumb question, but will the receiver be able to take the component inputs and output via HDMI to the TV, or will I still need to run the Component cable from the receiver to the TV for my XBOX and Wii?
I plan on upgrading my XBOX to an HDMI model, but right now I'm stuck with the older one.
Also, it appears from Yamaha's site that this receiver does support 3D, correct? Even though I don't really have any interest in that right now since I don't have a 3D TV, I may want it in a year or two and not sure I'll want to re-upgrade my receiver again.
