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: 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: This receiver is awesome. You can't go wrong with this purchase. Newegg is top notch. They delivered in less than 3 days and the price was way below everyone else's (Day before Sunday!). READ THE MANUAL!! UPDATE YOUR FIRMWARE!!! This solved any problems I had.
Pros: Unlimited expansion capabilities, Yamaha crystal clear sound, very easy speaker setup with included microphone. LOVE the Ipod dock, internet radio, phono input, detailed tweeking capabilities, movies sound superb....I got this because of the two HDMI outputs and all other features. Plenty of powe...
Cons: FM reception IS poor better with firmware update. I could care less. Not a deal breaker. As an audiophile, for the past 10 years I have not had an antenna hooked up to the tuner section of my receivers. I only hooked up the antenna on this receiver to hear the HD radio (this is my first). I recei...
Summary: 1) I wish that there was even one receiver on the market that would send digital audio (like HDMI) to other zones. HTPC owners know that only one audio souirce works at a time in Windows. 2) RF Remote control woluld be nice.
Pros: I had steep requirements for my AV system and this unit exceeded all of them. Here's a few highlights: 1) The latest audio decoders 2) Superior sound. This did my Altec 604Gs (1975) justice. Love many of the sound modes and they're easy to select. 2) 5.1 Main Zone and 2 add'l zones. Complete cont...
Cons: 1) It's not easy to adjust the subwoofer volume, you have to venture into the menu system (or to adjust any speaker levels). Same for dynamic sound control (night mode). 2) Would have loved a browser interface. They could so much more with that. 3) Fully programmable presets like I had with my B&...
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 bought this to support Projector and plasma HDMI outputs. Great quality with 7.2 speaker setup. Really liked the passthru feature i.e. system need not be switched on to pass the HDMI signal to plasma. MOst of kids shows are watched with TV audio.
Summary: I highly recommend getting banana plugs for your speaker wires for connecting this unit. The connectors are close together (as are most on receivers) and banana plugs make the setup go way quicker!
Pros: After months of research I decided on the 2065 based on it having almost everything I was looking for in a new receiver at an affordable price. The Internet radio is awesome and the ability to listen to all my MP3s from my computer and my wife's iPod. I also bought a couple of new speakers to set...
Cons: The FM reception is horrible! I cannot get either of the local stations I normally listen to. Luckily, it has the Internet radio, so I no longer really care about the local stations. It does not have any electrical outlets on the back, as my other two Yamaha receivers had.
Summary: Had mine 3 months now, I upgraded from a 12 year old Yamy DSP-A1 with a TX-492 Tuner which gave me about 20 FM stations, I get 1 with the 2065, I have a 6 element Antenna in the attic. Why is it that I can Receive Tons of stations on my car radio in the garage and 1 on My $1300.00 Receiver?
Summary: Connected to a Samsung LN52B750 with a Klipsch SL 5.1 system. Xbox 360, PS3, Cable box, Seagate TheaterPlus, and DVD player.(still have open inputs.) I think that adding 2-4 speakers will keep you from going to the movie ever again. I think 7.1 Enhanced is the best sound for me.
Pros: I'm geek. I bought it just because of the Iphone app and network connection. Features are to numerous to mention. New firmware works with the Samsung TV AnyNet+. The auto setup is great. Pass-through option.
Cons: Not really a cons, but it is best to manually check for firmware updates using the Network option. I've not seen updates online. AM and FM reception is weak for me, I'll be getting better antennas. You will need to work on wire management.
