Summary: I bought this system on March 15, 2011. Let me start by saying that the service department at Amazon was exceptional. Amazon gave me the Yamaha support center number and I waited 27 minutes without an operator picking up to respond. The HDMI outlet in the Yamaha receiver stopped working completely.
Summary: This started out bad. Ordered through Discount jungle. Clicked the button to finish the transaction around 8PM on a Thursday, including an extra $195.00 for one day shipping. Everything came up fine on the receipt to be delivered on Friday.
The Yamaha RX V2065 is a great value in a quality home 7.2 surround stereo
2 June 2011
Summary: I like Yamaha receivers. They are easy to operate, dependable, and have some features most other AV receivers don't have. I had a Yamaha RX-V467 (5.1 surround) and Polk speakers. I decided to upgrade. I went to several audio shops and they wanted me to invest over $5000 in an upgrade.
Summary: Ok, i've been an Onkyo owner since 2003. I've owened three different Onkyo units: TX-SR703, TX-SR803, and a TX-SR875S. I thought all along that Onkyo was the best there was? Well let me tell you,"I was so wrong." I was very dissapointed for a year after buying the Onkyo TX-SR875S.
Summary: I have had this receiver hooked up for about 7 months now. I recently got an IPOD dock for this receiver; it is the only IPOD dock that is compatible with it, and it is made by YAMAHA. The music on the IPOD plays fine, but the video applications do not.
Summary: This receiver perfectly solved our problem of delivering different sounds to 3 zones in our home. As a result, we can listen to the same or different music, from various sources, in our living room, our family room and our patio.
Summary: I went and demo'ed the V2065 vs the V1065 at my local Fry's. Basically the sound quality was similar but the extra features are what drove me to the V2065. The YPAO feature is huge timesaver in terms of setup. Tons of other cool features.
Summary: I tried this receiver for a week, and returned it. It has a ton of functions, and inputs, but seems as though it was engineered for the usual home theater system of today - the smaller front, center, and surround with a sub-woofer - which is fine if this is the configuration of your home system.
