I've recently installed this unit. A couple of points not previously mentioned. It is well worth connecting the unit to the network. (The unit requires CAT5 RJ45. It is not wifi enabled.) Once connected it will auto check for Firmware update. (Came with v2.xx. Current is 3.16.) If your home network is wireless and you have an iPhone - download the Yamaha iPhone app. You can then use your iPhone like a remote. Brilliant. Also once on the network you can use Internet radio, play files off your PC etc. The iPhone dock is also a must have addition.
I got this as a part exchange for a buggy Onkyo 609 and I'm very very happy.
This is such a step up from the Onk despite being roughly the same price now (550 quid).
Its fast, precise, natural and crisp sounding in a way that you have to hear for yourself.
I have it partnered with Tannoy Revolutions and the detail from music and film is very good.
My only criticism is the dodgy UI. Its supposed to be slick and intuitive but it isn't. But that shouldn't take anything away from what this does so well, engaging your eyes and ears.
A truly engaging piece of kit
When we put the Onkyo TX-NR808 and Yamaha RX-V1067 head to head in our November Group Test, it was a mighty close thing. Both are excellent, the Onkyo just edging the Yamaha with superior precision and focus of surround effects. But we still love the Yamaha too.
Using both methods, nixamk.
I love pioneer products as my system is made up from them,but this av amp which i just heard along with the lx53 & onkyo txsr 808,with 8 hdmi ins,DAB,ethernet,power amps similar to the DSP-Z11,Without meaning to be clumsy,I reckon this easily floats with the vsx-lx53 and it is a great sounding machine just like the vsxlx50 i had (nearly identical apart from more brightness from the '53,but completly sinks onkyos txsr 808,The sales assistant in sevenoaks,who was very adept at his job,totally agreed with me.We had them connected to monitors audios AV12 5.1 speaker system.Another thing it looks a lot more classy in the flesh compared to the pio & onk.
So how does this seemingly excellent mid-high range AVR compare to pioneers award winning 1300stg mid-high VSX-LX53 @ 450-500stg price reduction?How does it compare to the pio soundwise,scale,timing & musicality,i wonder,Or is the VSX-LX53 Really that good??!
Hi WHF Team,
How does the RX V1067 compare "Sound Quality" wise to the older RX V1900...?
Both have 5 Stars. But i guess the V1900 was replaced by 2065 and then by 2067. So i guess the V1900 is of a higher class than V1067. Also the V1900 has 130 w whereas V1067 has only 105 w.
Which has the better Sound...?
how does this compare to the Onkyo 808...??
What are pro & cons between the two of them..?
I'd like to know that too, especially because the VSX-LX53 seems to be just a more luxurious, but otherwise identical, version of the VSX-2020, which is about the same as this Yamaha.
I am in the market to re-new my ancient home cinema system and am seriously considering the Yamaha V1067. However, having read the reviews and looked at the specs a question came to mind over the networking of my music. Only windows media player is mentioned so I emailed Yamaha to ask if it would work with iTunes and a Mac. A week later I got the reply from their tech section confirming that iTunes and Macs are not supported. This seems a strange omission given the iphone etc dock and the premier place of iTunes. I realise there may be work arounds but I would hope it would be possible to fully support iTunes in the future.
Anyone know of a similar receiver supporting Macs and iTunes as I don't intend changing my computers.
I'm curious, how AV amplifier speaker setup is done for writing this and other AV amp review. Is it done by using the supplied set-up microphone from the manufacturer (Audyssey, EZEQ,.. etc.) or the speaker levels are set by using some other, professional, pressure measuring devices?
Maybe this was mentioned somewhere before but i'm new in this field so my knowledge/information in this moment is quite limited.
I am a Yamaha fundi and I have the old model RX- V1600.
I am not sure when and how this old model was rated but it is superior to the new model offered. I am still having alot of pleasure out of it.
The old RX-V1600 model has the THX versions included and the remote control can copy all your array of remotes therefore one can use just the Yamaha remote and that is it. The sound upscaling via the Supra cable and SonyS360 HDMI is superb.
The RX-V 1067 is inferior to the old RX-V1600.
I suggest that anybody that would like to change to new models, should hear the new model with their favourite DVDs in their own home cinema and then compare. If you can't hear the difference stick to your old model!. After all there is no abundance of software available on the market to try all the goddies available on your AV unless you want to play the same disc to death.
I am not sure whether I should compare my older model to the V2067? Certainly they don't compare in price.
