27 of 27 people found the following review helpful highly, Recommend, replaced my 13 years old Yamaha receiver.
By Code Monkey on This summer 24, 2015
I purchased this receiver to exchange my existing 13 years old Yamaha receiver after it entirely unsuccessful. (Finally!!!)
Wow!!! Amazing how everything has altered!!!
I really like all of the HDMI jacks, Wireless and Bluetooth Features.
First thing I recommend you do is update the firmware (software for hardware) once you get it linked to your Wi-Fi.
Connecting to Wi-Fi would be a breeze, However, it had been just a little tricky learning to pressure it to look for firmware updates, affirmed it found new firmware to set up after i located the choice within the menu.
Handful of features I wish to explain:
iPhone Yamaha application which controls most settings e.G. Volume, dialogue Volume, ETC. Wow!!!
Bluetooth connectivity - I can stream my music from phone towards the receiver. Nice!!!
Sirius XM application built in!! This really is great for those who have Sirius - just connect your bank account information and instantly have Sirius playing.
Yamaha has greatly simplified their handheld remote control using the Scene buttons - hint: after you have your cable connected, hold down the scene button for 5 seconds to set it for this button (this required us a couple of minutes to determine this)
also, I discovered I needed to upgrade some HDMI cables, like a couple of of my high finish cables are gone 12 years of age, I had been getting some weird issues, after i slapped on newer HDMI cables everything disappeared.
Overall I'm happy with the brand new Yamaha receiver in my experience they've greatly simplified the leading panel and the handheld remote control, consolidating features and hiding a few of the more expert level features.3 Comments Was this review useful for you?

By Jennifer Menzel on This summer 9, 2015
Have used the RX-V567 for quite some time and was searching to have an new version supporting Wireless, Bluetooth, Airplay, 4K + HDCP 2.2, and 2-zone output. I'll base this review on the upgrade effect rather than a full review on the sound (that was good with my old model too).
Pros:
- Great upgrade! It truly is important. Setup was quick and easy.
- Interface is straightforward, but good. The days are gone where it had been essential to search the manual for that mystery mode that permitted bi-amping the leading loudspeakers.
- Wi-fi compatability and Bluetooth labored as they are. Lots of choices to find and connect with the entry way. Haven't used the ethernet port yet.
- Audio streaming from the Synology server is effective within the network.
- The feature to redirect the trunk surround loudspeakers towards the second zone is excellent. just what I want - within my setup the 2nd zone is next to the primary zone and I'll most likely use party mode mostly, so will not require the rear loudspeakers then.
- Internet radio (although that wasn't certainly one of my criteria) is really a helpful addition. It is a good listing of free web r / c, Yamaha find the right vendor.
- Software update arrived soon after I switched the system on the very first time. It's great to see that a product improves itself without user interaction (I really hope Yamaha does not begin to see the upgrade capacity like a need to dial lower on QA - "we can deal with it later!")
- New remote is much more intuitive.
- At this point I haven't used the 4K streaming feature (my only 4K submissions are coming from the smart TV), and clearly there wasn't any opportunity to try HDCP yet. Which will most likely prove helpful at another time.
Cons:
- AirPlay is restricted to audio, no video playback or photo slideshows in the phone. Read more › 1 Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Aaron M. Brown on This summer 7, 2015
I replaced an Pioneer SC-55 receiver which i really loved. although, it was a few years old (got this year), the audio board around the receiver went. This receiver does not have pre-outs, but so far as seem is worried, it certainly holds it's own for the reason that department. It's capacity to spare. Yamaha normally has past underrating their receivers when it comes to audio output. I do not make use of the Wi-Fi and so i can't make a precise assesement with that, but the Lan works flawlessly. I updated the receiver towards the latest firmware which required about 20 min to accomplish.
I use this for my gaming platforms (Xbox 360, PS4 and PC) and all of them is effective. Used to do need to make a spinal manipulation to my TV therefore it would correctly scale 1920x1080 around the tv to avoid overscaling the desktop screen.
I tested the Internet radio and there are lots of good stations on the website with respect to the Genre you like hearing. I am unsure when the station should really instantly update the song title on screen or maybe it is the receiver's fault with that. Used to do however only check out one station, The Fox classic rock. I additionally signed into Pandora and our stations demonstrated in a listing. You'll have to make use of the Yamaha remote throughout the setup of Pandora. Additionally, it has support of SiriusXM but I am sure it might require yet another receiver to create that actually work but it's nice it's support for your.
I additionally such as the graphic interface. The UI is straightforward includes a nice piano graphic because the default wallpaper. Additionally, it offers an choice for gray background as sell. though, Let me visit a firmware update that support uploading of private wallpapers or at best have the ability to alter the color from grey to a new color. The menus are simple to scroll through and simple to find. Read more › 1 Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...
