Summary: Great reciever. Love the sound and the up converting. The USB in the front has been very helpful. Yamaha builds quality in thier units. This is the third Yamaha unit I have owned. They are always ready and willing when you need them to perform.
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. After owning this 1065 for about 2 years now for a very fair price through E-Bay I am still constantly impressed with all that is has to offer.
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. I have no complaints at all, except that the user manual is a bit confusing for a not experiment user.
Yamaha rxv1065 Not just home entertainment It's a concert at home
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: I have been buying receivers almost every other year for the past 20 years searching for the right sound, ease of use, best component quality, most flexibility and a receiver that is capable of not being outdated a year after you buy it. The top two features I like most about the receiver are the Scene functions and the sound quality.
Summary: amazing sound quality and powerfull 4/6 or 8 OHMS output, usb, ipod connectivity and charge (new models 5V)on screen menus, universal remote control, lot of sound fields programs, dts, sound enhancer in 2 or 7 channels, etc,..... msrp is about $999.00 get it on amazon for $450 brand new A-Stock, theres a little issue with fm tuner it only accepts strong signal stations, i email yamaha support and they send me the update for this unit and everything change, now it accepts...
Summary: I had a nice Sony STR-DE995. It was a purchase I never thought I'd be able to make because times were tuff. For whatever reason it didnt quite make the grade and I was dissapointed. (Yet I loved it.) 4 years ago we bought a Sony KDL-46X-BR3. It was just after a move and we were getting our new house figured out. I said, I want my 7.1 speakers pluggable from behind the TV. Well, that exact thing happened. So now I'm the audio expert around here. The sony bit the dust.
Summary: very good reciever, sound quality is great as expected from yamaha. setup is easy, i would recomend this reciever to anyone. And with sirius sat, usb and hdmi inputs it has just about everything anyone could ask for.
Summary: By far the best buy for the money in this price range. With plenty of user-configurable settings, key options for all of the A/V inputs, not to mention the Bluetooth Dock and XM & Sirius features, this receiver lived up to the reviews read online, and those also offered by the CNET editorial staff. I also like the individual options and volume settings available for the HDMI and A/V inputs, very handy; all available through the on-screen user menu.
