Yamaha recently introduced the RX-V867 AV receiver (95W x 7), topping off the company's "67" series.
The new receiver, which joins four other low- to mid-priced models, is equipped with the latest AV technologies, including simultaneous dual HDMI outputs, network capabilities, as well as 3D video and the latest HD audio support.
As with the existing models in the "67" series, the RX-V867 provides a 3D and HD audio surround sound experience for AV users who want to get the most out of their Blu-ray disc players, broadcast HD services and gaming consoles, as well as 3D televisions. In addition, the new on-screen display GUI with album art can overlay on HD and 3D sources.
