Yamaha RX-V567 Home Theater A/V Receiver 110/220V
Ready or not, 3D technology will be a feature in every home in time to come. Major electronics manufacturers are doubling their efforts to jostle for first mover advantage in this 3D race to capture market share. Yamaha Electronics has joined the race by offering the Yamaha RX-V567, a 3D-capable 7.1 channel AV Receiver. You get plenty of options in terms of source connectivity and convenience features, 3D support for the Side-by-Side (Half) and Top-and-Bottom formats that broadcasters are adopting, as well as for current 3D Blu-ray content.
It comes with the latest HDMI ver1.4 inputs. HDMI 1.4 brings compatibility with the new 3D video format, as well as an ARC (Audio Return Channel) from your display back to the receiver.
The Yamaha RX-V567 retains much of the simple layout of the RX-V series. It sports a black brush metal finish in a basic metal chassis. The power button is now in a more convenient position at the top left corner while the large volume control knob sits on the opposite end. The subtle fluorescent display occupies the center portion and the rest of the controls and presets are laid out intuitively. The controls and presets are well laid out. Just below the display are four pre-set SCENE buttons (BD/DVD, TV, CD and Radio) which allows you to conveniently turn on the correct components and activate the intended input/surround mode combination with one touch.
Connectivity options are more than adequate for a mid-priced receiver. There are 4 HDMI inputs and one HDMI output are located at the top row for ease of connection. You also get 2 component video inputs, 5 sets of composite video inputs and 2 sets of optical and coaxial digital audio inputs. There’s a jack at the top left for connecting an optional Yamaha universal dock (such as the YDS-12) or a bluetooth receiver (YBA-10). A full complement of speaker terminals occupy the center portion. There are no multi channel analog inputs so you will have to use HDMI for your blu-ray and other hi-def sources, which is the best way to connect your components together to enjoy hi-definition video with the latest audio codecs. All output jacks are clearly marked in white to prevent connection errors.
Additional connectivity options available on the front panel include a mini jack for portable audio players, a set of A/V inputs, and a headphone jack.
