Press the INFO button on the remote to change what's displayed on the front panel.

I recently added two klipsch sw450 subs to my surround setup. they are connected via lfe 1 and 2 from my 667, my question is can I add a third sub by splitting one of the lfe signals with a y splitter to the third sub? thx in advance. ps these subs work really nice on blueray or even dvd content, but they are not at all impressive with DTV. wish DTV would give us at least dvd quality sound

Source where I got my V667. Extremely satisfied with this receiver and their customer service. They were always helpful with any question I had. Even though they sell "B" stock, it still had full factory warranty. http://stores.ebay.com/Beverly-Hills-Electronics . Was about 1/2 the price when these receivers came out in 2010.


Review that sold me on this particular Yamaha: http://hometheater.about.com/od/audiocomponentreviews/fr/Yamaha-Rx-V667-7-2-Channel-Home-Theater-Receiver-Product-Review.htm

Thanks man I'll look into it. I had a Onkyo 707(Which I loved), but It was drowned in Sandy. Looking forward to a different brand and this looks like a killer system for the price. Sent a PM with a question.

My question is 1 - does anyone know know if I can use just the output stage of the HK to drive my speakers? and 2 - would there be any audible difference?

1. use the pre-outs and then connect them to the corresponding inputs on the HK

2. not sure about that, i use to use a old sony avr to power my fronts and although it was not audibly better it was definitely cooler. now i have a crown and it is way better! try it and see, no harm no foul!

No, you need the 673 or newer for 4K support. But I'm pretty sure most PS4 content is not going to be more than 1080p anyway.

Nice to see that this thread is not completely dead & buried. Close to 3 yrs. Kinda shows when ya come across a well made machine...it holds up well. wink.gif
post #3733 of 3908
Even the reburbs, like mine. smile.gif
post #3734 of 3908
Yep. Mines still alive and kicking. I'm not going to upgrade until there is object based sound like atmos or prices really drop on dts neo x receivers

Yeppers....don't ya know it. Always been a Yamaha nut. Hell, even my motorcycles are Yamahas..tongue.gif Only machine that seemed to be a miss was the V665. But Yamaha listened and came out with the V667 to make up for the deficiencies. My last unit was the V495. Used it for bout 13yrs and still do. (As a bedroom radio).

Just wanted to pass this along incase it could help others with same situation. Few post back I mentioned how my DVR/RX/HDTV would not hold the resolution setting I'd manually set. As in, it would reset to the default setting (720p) every time I'd shut off everything. Tried all kinds of sequences. Well, few days ago, cable service (Comcast), did a reset to their signal and now everything holds steady. Even though cable services will only send out 1080i to save their costs and not 1080p, I'm still happy. So.....like most everything else in life, if a problem shows up, first step is go to the source. (Hint: keep searching for someone who knows what they're talking about, too)

Anybody know the power output if you are only feeding 2 channels (right and left speakers)?

Hi folks! I love my 667. I have it connected to a powered Emotiva subwoofer and am also using an external amp--Adcom 2535. That amp runs in 3 channels--200 watts to center and 60w x2 to right and left speakers. Currently, I am only using the 667 to power the two rear surrounds.

I am thinking of switching this up to use the receiver to power the right and left and the Adcom to connect to the surrounds. Anybody know what power advantage I will get if I do this? I am aware that the 667 is rated 90w x7, but I thought the Adcom, as an audiophile amp, would get me cleaner power. I will note that during extremely loud passages (crescendos) during movies, I have experienced clipping on the left and right speakers.

I am using the budget Pioneer Andrew Jones left-right center speakers, and Snell 8' in-ceilings.

Thanks for your help!

Bumpity-bump.

So nobody know nothing about this?
post #3739 of 3908
Sometimes it takes longer than three days to get your answer. kriktsemaj99 usually gets around at some point. This isn't the most active thread. Specially on a 3-yr-old unit.

The 667's output driving two channels is 90 watts per channel. Driving 5 or 7 channels the output will be about 40 watts per channel. This is because the 667(like almost all AVRs) does not have a separate power supply for each channel(your Adcom does). The 667 is a 7 channel amplifier but the power is rated with only two channels driven. This is a common practice used by almost all AVR manufacturers to inflate power ratings. I would let the Adcom drive your 3 front channels and the 667 drive the two rear channels.

I think this is about right for the Yamaha. I think the Denon and the higher-end Onkyo receivers do have discrete power supplies.

Does anyone have a YPAO mic for the 667 I could purchase or borrow? I can't find mine for the life of me.
post #3743 of 3908
I'm having some trouble with BASS MANAGEMENT. There is not a lot of documentation about it with this Receiver.

My sub-woofer is connected trough the LFE channel , and when i run YPAO i set the sub at 50%volume and maximum crossover . On the receiver i then choose 60hz for crossover.
YPAO sets the levels -7db at .That works fine for movies , but for music is VERY LOW. You can tell this switching from "pure direct" (sub-woofer is not used , only the bass from the tower loudspeakers) to "straight"( uses sub-woofer , does bass management) , if i use the level -7db there is a huge lack of bass.

What i've done is setting the sub-woofer level at -3db or 0db when listening to music , only this way my sub-woofer blends nicely with the front speakers. Do other people use this solution? Am i doing right?

Another question is , how does the Rxv 667 execute the LFE +10db boost when playing 5.1ch movies? At the YPAO setting -7db , is the +10db Boost applied automatic to the LFE channel (.1)
post #3744 of 3908
The volume setting is the "default" volume relative to the other speakers and the listening position. The LFE channel does tune in a little quiet. I keep mine at 0 dB and then adjust the volume on the subwoofer amp.
post #3745 of 3908
When i calibrate using the SPL and pink noise , if the other speakers read 75db , the subwoofer even at 0db or +5db reads like 60db on the meter.
post #3746 of 3908
Definitely increase it on the amp.
post #3747 of 3908
When listening to music (at -3db or 0db on the amp) by ear it sounds good , like the way it should be. Its at -7db when is too quiet and you can tell that by ear. I just don't know why YPAO sets it this way , the reason it exist is to calibrate the system and let the user listen better audio , not the way around.

Hello. New guy here searching for some answers. I really hope you can help me out with this one. I've got a Yamaha RX-V767 that stopped working. Took it to a friend of mine to help me out and the next day he found the problem. The chip in the photo is not working anymore. And I don't know how to find a replacement for it. No service near my area could help me with this part. I've searched for it and found some possible matches here: http://elcodis.com/searchparts/sil9.html . But I don't know which one is it.
I would really appreciate if someone could help me out. Thanks and have a great day.
