depends on what you want it for:

better check - what output do you have: HDMI? if so how many do you need?
: does your HDMI output bitstream or LPCM? lossless audio?

if you are after this for a standard system and don't care about cranking up the volume too much, get it if the price is right.

however looking at a SINGLE spec figure it tells me the insides of this thing is cheap stuff unsuitable for audiophile pumping: the power output rating: it can only reliably drive ONE channel ... and will struggle to drive 2 - 5 channels at high volumes.

a good amp will show: "7 channels driven at 20-20000Hz @ say 100W with 0.05 % THD (total harmonic distortion)"

this amp can only drive ONE channel at ONLY 1000Hz at the rated 100W ... don't crank up the volume or your speaker will clip real bad!

What speakers are you looking to drive?
I'm picking if you're an audiophile (the worlds most abused phrase.... what ever happened to being a lover of music?) then I'm guessing you wouldn't be asking about a home theatre amp to begin with.

The 467 is an entry level'ish amp that'll be pretty easy for the family etc to use as there are 'quick select' style buttons on front for switching to the radio / Sky / BluRay etc. It won't blow your hair off, but it should work for what you're looking to do.

If you truly want the system for music, with a bit of home theatre on the side, then grab the Yamaha 667 amp, then add a power amp to the mix (bi-amp) and get sweet 2-channel sound that can run home theatre too. BUT, it'll cost you considerably more.

Cool - do the speakers have any ratings on the back? (Wattage and ohms.)

Looking at the 667 myself. Coupled with a Marantz 7025 for the front left and right, should provide more than enough power for all forms of listening.

8 ohms should be fine to run, your amp will probably run out of puff before your speakers... so it should be okay for home theatre duty.

Dunnersfella: 8 ohms should be fine to run, your amp will probably run out of puff before your speakers... so it should be okay for home theatre duty.


what do you mean?

that is probably the most dangerous statement to make - when an amp is maxed out it starts to clip. clipping produces very abnormal vibrations to the speaker which will over vibrate. the cause to one's ear is pain, and the result is damage to speaker.

300W of clean signal to a 200W rated speaker for a few moments is way less harmful than a clipping 90W signal to a 400W rated speaker even for a split second.
