Yamaha RX-V677 AV Receiver Review

 

Yamaha's latest budget audio/video receiver might not have Dolby Atmos but it's still a great surround sound performer and a worthy addition to a...

Powerful and involving sound ; Excellent control app ; Well built

Slightly ungainly appearance ; A little recessed at lower volumes ; Can be unwilling to engage ARC

For all the excitement that myself and fellow reviewers have for higher-end equipment, this price point is one that in many ways represents the upper reaches of what a ‘normal’ (or whatever passes for normal) person might spend on an AV amp - and this...

great product

 

Wanted to note that the app works much better on Android devices. I had some issues on iOS. This isn't an issue for me as my tablet is Android and works flawlessly. This also isn't a flaw in the unit itself..

This receiver is great. It is a great way to organize all my devices. Wi-Fi capability is great if you have a good network set-up. The banana clip ports make this so much easier to secure the speakers (banana plugs did not come with receiver but...

Not much of an issue but you will need to update firmware when setting up. I had better luck doing this by hardwiring it to my router via Ethernet. Does not warrant loss of eggs

Great Receiver

 

The RX-V673 / RX-A720 were the last receivers to receive two audio out plugs. Since the RX-V677 only has one, this means you can only connect one analog recording device to this receiver. For example, you could connect a VCR, but could not also connect...

Most of the bells/whistles you'd want in a receiver ; Built-in bookmarks for internet radio stations ; Built-in WiFi ; 2.1A front USB outlet ; Video upscaling, including from analog sources

Only one audio out ; No HDCP 2.2 ; No digital radio ; No Dolby Atmos ; Remote only controls receiver

I should have done more research

 

This is a really nice mid range unit. It is not what i wanted or need i will be relegating this unit to the basement back into its box and onto the shelf, I have a Yamaha RX 2030 in route to my house now. So I can use my new pre amp. I learned a...

This receiver is just ok it has plenty of features usually reserved for higher end units. I like the YPAO makes it a snap to set up home entertainment speaker arrangement. Internet radio is awesome wireless wifi works well streams just about every...

I must have been reading the specifications for the RX 777.when i bought this model. I wasn't paying attention when I installed the speakers and peripherals and Hdmi cables. After i finished i listened moved the speakers around till they sounded best....

Great Case

 

This is the first new AV receiver I've purchased since the 1990s, and it replaces a JVC that was built like a tank, and was about as easy to operate. I like to keep my equipment a long time, and my research led me to the Yamaha RX-V series. Got it on a...

Many different ways to watch or listen to media, especially if you have Apple devices. My main system contains a hodge-podge of nice speakers, and this receiver makes them sound like they should. In particular I like the Scene buttons, which make it...

My analog video sources looked a little clearer plugged directly into my TV. I do like having one video line out running from the receiver to the TV for the sake of simplicity, so I guess it’s no big deal. Here’s my big gripe. I use the network...

RX-V677

 

4k up converter, plenty of HDMI inputs, two zones audio ; Wi-Fi, ease to use and tuning. Good sound quality

Remote has volume control in opposite location to all other remotes I own, why? Mute button is located between volume and program selector instead of being just below volume control ; Unit is extremely big so you better have a lot of room in your...
