Summary: The product was scratched so I boxed it back up to send back. Then I noticed they sent the wrong model. Timing was such that I could not take a replacement so I got a refund. They don't refund the $20+ S&H so I ate that. I do not recommend purchasing from this seller.
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.
Good reciever but HDMI does not allow audio pass through

Summary: I bought this receiver fully expecting to use HDMI inputs for audio and video connections. As it turns out you have to use a separate audio connection along with the HDMI cable. In other words the HDMi for this unit only handles the Video aspect of the receiver and not the audio.
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.
Summary: As other reviewers have mentioned, the packaging and the labeling in the store had HDMI all over the box. Buying a "receiver" that indicates HDMI (high definition multimedia interface) led me to believe the receiver "received" multimedia via the HDMI connection. Nope.
Summary: As a standard def audio receiver, it works as it should. For a HDMI capable receiver, it is utterly useless. It has "HDMI Pass-through" which basically means it works an an expensive switch box. It takes the HDMI signal, and forwards it along to the TV. That is it.
Summary: I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on receivers from Sony, Onkyo, NAD, Carver and a few others, but never considered Yamaha...my new philosophy regarding electronics is not to spend over $200.00 on this type of item and if and when something should go wrong, just toss it and start...
Summary: Works very much as advertised. Probably not the best receiver I've ever had, but perfectly adequate for a small home theater and CD playing application. I haven't gotten around to installing the rear speakers yet, so I can't comment on the surround sound, but it drives two pretty hefty (and old and...
