Summary: Great 7.1 Surround Sound system. If you are looking for a great surround sound experience get the newer RX-A. I purchased this unit because Yamaha was known for durability. My system's pre-amp failed after only 4 years.
Summary: This Yamaha RX-V1065 has outperformed every stereo home theater and radio that I have ever owned. And I have had many receivers in my time. I have never been able to go out and spend big bucks on audio equipment before.
Summary: I have always been a Yamaha fan however this is the WORST receiver when it comes for pulling in FM local stations. As far as the performance on HDTV XBOX PS3 its good but the pass through feature does not work with my Motorola cable box.
Summary: I paid for it $380, which was really a good deal. I had a DENON entry level receiver, which was replaced by this one. The difference is big, in music and movies. Very good product, good connectivity.
Summary: I was really pleased with this for the first six months I had it. Now I cannot watch My HDMI inputs the receiver will play for 20 seconds to a minute and then shuts itself off. After that point every time you turn it on it shuts itself off.

30 April 2011
Summary: Yamaha rxv1065 The best sound you can get with 3D audio , when you watch concert , it feels like it's live ,but you need Nice speaker to go with it, I setup with 9 speakers with it , with this model you can 1 center, 2 Fronts,4 surround, 2 power subwoofers ,powerfull sound.
Summary: Does everything it should well but receive off-air signals. I read the reviews too, so I was aware of this problem. Since I have a Satelite(XM)receiver hooked to it, I bought it anyway, due to the price. Off-air reception is as reported. Everything else works perfectly and is simple to set up.
Summary: i really liked the yamaha receiver but for some reason i must have got two lemons first the first one i ordered the hdmi video did not work then the second one i received worked for two days and would not stay on i will say amazon was good at refunding me my money
