    Comments about Yamaha 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Built-In High Performance Network AV Receiver - Black:

    I'm strictly a music guy, so I'd searched for close
    to a year trying to find a simple (but good quality)
    2-channel receiver. The only problem is, I like to use four speakers-so what I was listening to with my
    trusty Denon Dra-395 was 'artificial' surround sound.The man at the stereo store said, "You can't
    do that!" So I finally settled for a Pioneer 7.2
    channel surround sound receiver. Not happy! Forget
    about trying to figure out the functions on the
    receiver; the remote itself left me dazed and confused. Returned.
    Enter the Yamaha RX-V677...What a wonderful difference for someone like me who used to be
    terrified of 'multi-channel' anything! Easy to
    set up (You can calibrate the speakers Auto or Manual); the remote, while it does have its share
    of buttons, is acually pretty staightforward.
    IMHO, I found that bi-amping the speakers
    delivers the best sound; I set the receiver to
    5.1 channel, even though I'm only using 4 speakers
    at this time (Polk Audio Ts-x330t fronts,vintage
    Klipsch Forte rears). I'll add an extra speaker soon.
    Let me just say that I've been enjoying music
    on cable (Palladia) a lot more than I used to-
    even artists I'm not a huge fan of-just because
    it sounds so good now, thanks to the Yamaha RX-V677!
    Why only four stars? C'mon, I've only had the
    Yamaha for a few weeks now, so give me a little more time and hopefully I'll be able to add another star soon.

      Comments about Yamaha 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Built-In High Performance Network AV Receiver - Black:

      I bought this to set up a basic 2.1 system in my bedroom and it's doing the job beautifully. So much that I'm thinking about swapping it with my trusty rx-v596 that's the center of my living room home theater system.

      I have the yamaha bluetooth receiver hooked up to it, my roku and an lg smart tv. Along with the remote app on my phone I can control everything with ease from the comfort of my bed. For speakers I went with polk RTiA3's and a psw-505. It's overkill for the size of my bedroom but when I want to listen to something loud it sounds excellent, flawless and effortless.

      I will eventually get tired of my lack of hdmi connections on my old receiver and move this one into the more used spot, guess I needed a little time to be convinced it could do the job and I know it can now. Thank you Yamaha for putting out great receivers at reasonable prices!

        Comments about Yamaha 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Built-In High Performance Network AV Receiver - Black:

        Love this receiver once it was wired correctly. (Need a little better initial set-up manual. But once we got the "on-screen menu" working, it was easy to program and operate. One drawback is adjusting the equalizer. It takes too much time to adjust each individual speaker to individual taste and it's hard to adjust even on-screen. The Wi-Fi is excellent and sound quality is great. I especially like the fact that it's controllable form my computer. Awesome. Hard to beat for the price.

          I've been using Yamaha AVR for 20 years now, I won't use anything else. Upgraded from RX-V667 to RX-V677. GREAT receiver, great sound, great Wi-Fi, great UPnP/DLNA support.

            Comments about Yamaha 7.2 Channel Wi-Fi Built-In High Performance Network AV Receiver - Black:

            When you first hookup the amplifier do not expect it to sound great as the factory default setting seldom match your taste. But once you have had it playing for a while and you've figure out the bass and treble and you've adjusted your speaker settings how you want them then crank it up sit back and be amazed. Weather it's movies or music this receiver will not disappoint you.
            And don't forget to download the app to your smartphone to control everything your Yamaha RX-V667 can do. It's a great app and fun to play with.

              My system is always on. The bad part about the system is that it does not allow me to hook up my game system. Other than that, it is awesome. Super sound. Easy set-up. Crisp, clear and my vinyl records sound better than ever.

                I purchased the 677 to replace a Denon DTS receiver because I wanted HDMI inputs. While the Denon sounded and worked great, the sound quality from this Yamaha is absolutely stellar! With all the features available to you on this receiver, it is surprisingly simple to setup and operate. I called Support once and they were able to help me figure out an issue not receiving a digital signal from my Blu-ray player. I have recommended this receiver to a good buddy as well. The RX-V677 is simply fantastic!

                I use this as my home theatre system it is not the highest end but is reasonable in cost and sounds good! Like most Yamaha receivers it is tough and is great value for your dollar. I was impressed with my Polk speakers and using this receiver I was listening to internet radio and turned it up to full volume and their was not any distortion in the music at all. I was impressed!!

                  I like one of the other reviewers am experiencing a drop out in my HDMI signal when passing through the AV to the TV. The screen will go black for about 1-2 seconds while the audio continues uninterrupted. I don't understand what is causing this I'm using monster HDMI cables, that I've switched out twice in order to eliminate malfunctioning cables. This malfunction will happen maybe 1-2 time every couple hours ,not enough to be really annoying but it occurs usually at the least opportune time. When the HDMI video is working properly its stunningly accurate and sharp.
                  I received the 677 for Christmas from my wife, and was very happy. It replaces an out dated AV Denon 1500 purchased in 1996 .
                  The audio is amazing, sound is accurate with no noticeable amp noise, hum or buzz, when the volume is cranked up, not even a hiss.
                  Drives my 7.1 setup with minimal distortion, My Kliipsch towers have never sounded as sweet. My wife and kids love the ipod airplay they come home and the jams are on.
                  This good mid range AV receiver is function filled, and packed, with all kinds of goodness. If you require more than (2) audio only inputs, or Bluetooth connectivity. This AV receiver may not be idea for you . You can always purchase the the Bluetooth adapter for 60 bucks more?

                  A couple things that I really Found useful are the YPVO, and the included CD with the owner manuals and setup information. After taking 5 minutes to review the CD setup was a snap.
