Best Reciever for Under 400? - Page 2

post #11 of 24

Yamaha RX-V667 - burr brown dacs/adcs and enough power to run some mid range impedance headphones outta the front headphone jack if you ever wanted to.

7.2, 6 HDMI 1.4 jacks, dual zones. I know there are plenty of other options, but over the past decade I have really enjoyed the work and engineering yamaha has put in to increase the quality of their receiver lines. 10 years ago, something of this caliber would have ran you $2500+ easy

As far as I am concerned, these are some of the best price/performance receivers around.

It was the xx5 series. I've got the 805. The amp sections were really big; the receiver was 55lbs and the fans were really tiny. I've had the receiver shut off past -30db when ambient temps around the case were around 90-95F.

They've since scaled back the amp sections and the 806, 807, 808 lost about 15 pounds of beef.

A $2,500 receiver, today or 10 years ago, would not have that tiny of an amplifier section like the 667 has.

I think it depends on whether you want to focus on solid 2ch power or additional features for a surround/HT system. At this price point I don't know if you can find exceptional quality in both.

I still think the 667 is a really great buy though - preouts at $400 along with all the other features make it really attractive. That's why I bought one

And yeah, the onkyo 805 is very well known for being a beast. It's crazy how much smaller/weaker the following versions have gotten (but still decent enough and more than adequate for most people).

Do you know the sensitivity/impedance of the speakers this will be driving? How big is your room? I think we should look at these factors first to determine whether power output will be a concern.

Yea, but I no longer need to run human-being sized cabinets of speakers to put together a moderate 7.1 home theater system.

I just think there are alot more options these days without taking up half of your room and needing an amp that weights 80 pounds.

The first home theatre fronts i had were cabinets that together were twice the size of the 40 inch glass tube mistubishi TV w/ stand, which was a complete monster in its day.
