The features and functions make this AV Receiver a real value!

Posted

Pros: Dual subwoofer outputs, lots of HDMI inputs, 'Net Radio, Pandora, Airplay, CEC, remote is universal, lots of power for most home theaters

Cons: Setup could be easier, banana plugs missing for Front Height Speakers

The design of the RX-V673 is sleek yet understated. No spouse should complain no matter where it's placed. The display window on the receiver provides the user with almost anything the user wants to know, and with the press of a button on the remote it can be displayed on screen. The hand-held remote can be programmed to control most TVs, BD players and other electronic devices, too. The receiver's remote can be also easily programmed to control most set top boxes, which means the Yamaha remote acts as a universal remote for most electronic components, a cost-saving factor.

Great receiver for the money. Just right for my bedroom "home theater" setup. Hopefully it will last as long as my previous Yamaha.

Pros: More features than I can use. Zone 2 lets me send output to my adjacent bathroom. More than enough HDMI for me.

Cons: User's guide is on CD. Setup was difficult and time consuming. Remote has numerous small buttons w/o backlight.

This previous year's model had almost as many feature as the latest and greatest rmodel.I did not need built-in Bluetooth or WiFi of the latest unit in my bedroom at this time, and can add it with optional devices from Yamaha.

Good Solid HT Receiver

Pros: ARC - Zone 2 - Airplay - YPAO

Cons: None yet

I am upgrading from a 10 year old sony str-db870. I am no audiophile but love my music and movies. This receiver does fill that void. For the price, it has a ton of great features that makes me question why I waited so long. I have it setup in a 14x16' family room with a vaulted ceiling and solid oak floors. For speakers, I am using Paradigm Atom, Mini and SE center. The Sub is a 12" powered Cerwin Vega. The back surrounds are Boston Acoustic and Outside (Zone 2) are Nile OS-10. There is plenty of power to really make these speakers sing. After 2 weeks this is my feedback. YPAO - Very easy to setup and run. After config, noticed it was lacking overall bass. Went into the manual setup...
