There is a whole lot to like with the Yamaha RX-V671 starting with the price. At under $600, you are getting a full suite of networking features including out of the box iPod\/iPhone integration via a front mounted USB port. App support is practically a must these days and, aside from no Android support, is present. Yamaha has included a robust amp section and the ability to power a second zone with the surround back amps. Burr-Brown 192kHz\/24-bit DACs are included for all channels, onboard deinterlacing looks to be top notch, 3D is supported, and you can scale all analogue and HDMI inputs to 1080p. While there are a few features we would miss, for most consumers, the RX-V671 packs a lot of punch in a very affordable package. \n\n\nDiscuss "Yamaha RX-V671 Network A\/V Receiver First Look" here.
