Summary: This receiver is barely used in my opinion. I have used it in all purposes with ease. It6 integrates very welln with my Onyko DV-CP706 DVD changer. the trick to optimizing this unit is to use Coaxial and Optical for Audio and HDMI for Video. This unit powers by Bose/Polk audio speakers very well.
Summary: I've had this receiver for around 3 months and must say that it is just what I've been wanting in a home theater and music center. I've got a miss-match of speakers that I've had for many years and the 1065 performs perfectly with all of them. It sets up very quickly with the GUI. I like to set up using the manual option as you can mold the speaker levels and tone to your own expectations. The remote is laid out fairly well and is easy to get used to.
Summary: This receiver was one great buy. It took a bit to figure out the best approach to hook up all the additional components in order to record from satellite but now that its complete its simply a great system. I added the Yamaha speaker system and the sound is excellent. The limitations are mine - hard to see the labels on the remote as they are very small print - especially with the lights dimmed. Other than that - great buy!
Summary: More than I could have hoped for at the price. I own receivers that have cost more and bought this for the family room and added the I pod craddle. The craddle allows for my I touch to be controled via the receivers remote rather than adding yet another remote. When plugged in it automaticly identifies the input for both sound and video. The sound is crisp and clear and equal to my other equipment. In fact I am considering adding the reciver to my current system.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Good Power
Summary: This is a very good 5.1 receiver for the price. It offers an array of sounds and includes enhanced sound on 2 or 5 channel. It also offers straight sound. The unit has a very good operating instruction manual which makes it easy to set up. All in all, a very good entry level 5.1 surround sound receiver.
Summary: This is a great receiver for the price. It's a very compact unit compared to other brands. We had an old Onkyo receiver and wanted to upgrade our system for a new flat screen TV. The sound is clear and precise, and this receiver is a good all around unit for music, dvd, tv, etc. We also bo't a Yamaha center speaker (model # NS-C125) to go with the system, and this is also very clear.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
