This is an entry level receiver that anyone could use within their home theater. Now if you have limited space and can only implement a 5.1 system (no room to put 2 rear speakers). You may be in this position if your seating is against a wall. If you're in this position, you're wasting time and your money on a 7.1 system. As you can see in the diagram here. Well you could but the rear speakers on the wall above your head but you just can't do this without forcing the ideal listening position to somewhere where you aren't sitting.
The Yamaha RXV-367or the RXV-467 is ideal for entry level Home Theater enthusiasts they are simple and has solid True power (which is explained @ http://majormack.blogspot.com/2010/12/building-affordable-home-theaterpt-2.html
I am a Yamaha fan and own a higher end one but I can attest to its quality. As you can see here the front panel does look modern and could compliment any system, well almost unless of course the only devices you own are an original Nintendo and a Commodore 64 then all I could suggest is take up a new hobby. For those who are still interested, it will give you

In conclusion, for less than a hundred dollars more, the benefits of getting a model up in this situation is worth it. The RX-V467 has the 3D capabilities as well as true power and full HD Decoding. All Yamaha systems (as far as I knew) come with the YPAO sound optimization for automatic speaker setup except the RX-V367? I don't know why that is but this YPAO is a mic that you run plugged into the receiver and it in turn equalizes all the speaker levels to make your surround sound accurate. Many companies provide a similar system with their receivers and I've found some better than others. I've used the YPAO system and in my opinion it is one of the better sound optimization systems.
As a beginner receiver at about $300usd and as low as $229usd (same price I saw the RX-V367 at), the Yamaha RX-V467 is a solid option as it could be classified as futureproof receiver possessing all the necessary tech. to handle all current technology within your home theater.
