RX-V677B What the Technician Says: Home Theatre Amplifier
“This RX-V677B amplifier is suitable for 7.2 Channels (3 speakers at the front, 2 speakers at the side, 2 speakers at the rear and either 1 or 2 channel sub-woofers). This amplifier can also provide a ‘ZONE 2’ option allowing for different sound to go to 2 speakers in a completely different zone.
If you already have 7.1 or 7.2 channel speakers, and are looking to replace a broken or old amplifier, this is the best amplifier for those who have medium quality speakers and want want to maintain their zone 2 features.
This amplifier has digital connections (Toslink Optic Fibre and Coaxial SPDIF). This amplifier has a logical remote control and will fit your current 5 channel speakers.
This amplifier is suitable for all new TVs (has Optic Fibre for digital audio) as well as 6 x HDMI inputs (1 x HDMI out)
PLEASE NOTE: This amplifier is the same as the HTR-6067B AV Receiver, although the HTR-6067B is cheaper on price due to being an ‘installer’s’ model (no difference and recommended).
The RX-V1075B is also similar in all features except it is 110W per channel compared to the 90w of this RX-V677. Both of these machines have 4K Pass through (all Yamaha amplifiers do) as well as 4K HDMI Upscale Resolution.“
Technician’s Verdict: 90W per channel, this is a ZONE 2 Amplfiier with 7.2 option. Best Value Zone 2.
