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. I was told that if I upgraded my speakers I needed 200wpc to drive high-end speakers. I reviewed what receivers were available at a moderate price.
Summary: i purchased this product after researching alot of different recievers,i am replacing a older yamaha htr5740.i've had no problems with it just wanted to up grade to more power,more hook up options also cause of hdmi.this unit is my main audio source i use it for tv,movies and of course music.the sound is supurb awesome i really like alot. it does everything i wamt it to.great features and looks good on my entertainment stand.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Attractive center piece, Easy To Setup, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality, Well built
Summary: excellent sound quality! Excellent clarity across the entire frequency range. the net radio function is great, enjoy listening to different internet radio stations across the world. 2 disappointments:- The HDMI pass-through functionality is not selectable once the amp is turned off (i.e. placed in standby mode). If Blu-ray is selected when the amp is turned off, you cannot switch to TV without turning the amp back on again, and selecting TV input on the amp.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: this receiver is great. a few drawbacks: - The Am/FM tuner is not very good. It cannot catch a lot of radio signals - HDMI pass-through: The receiver is not smart enough to switch from one input to another when the receiver is powered down. It remains on the HDMI input that was selected prior to powering down. I believe the new Aventage receivers have this capability. Yamaha, please fix this for the RX-V2065.
