Not as advertised on Amazon - no XM / Sirius Radio - get a better one
21 April 2010
Summary: The Amazon website (at least April 2010) states this receiver is XM and Sirius Ready: (clipped from Amazon April 21 2010): Technical Details Style Name: RX-V465BL * 5-channel 525W powerful surround sound (105W x 5) * 1080p-Compatible HDMI 1.3 * Bluetooth music streaming using Yamaha YBA-10 Bluetooth Audio Receiver * Connect an iPod using Yamaha YDS-10SL Universal iPod Dock * XM and Sirius Satellite Radio Ready That contradicts the specs from Yamaha [...
Summary: I bought this unit here a month ago. I completely overlooked that I listen to FM radio many MANY more hours than I watch movies or TV. I live in a fringe FM reception area, so a really good tuner section on an A/V receiver is critical for me (as I said, something I totally forgot). I set this unit up easily, the mic.
Summary: I needed to replace a 10 year old JVC A/V receiver with one that had HDMI switching. I have a DVD player and a Scientific Atlanta 8300HDC HD cable box from Time Warner. Both components send their video directly to my LCD TV and their audio goes to the receiver, which my speakers are connected to.
Summary: I bought the Yamaha RX V465 5.1 channel 525 Watt Receiver a few weeks back and am enjoying it. I like the fact that it has so many inputs and has the ipod hook-up to it, Havent got the dock yet But I plan to.
Summary: I originally decided to get an AV/R because my current setup, which consists of an inexpensive mixer/console driving a pair of powered studio monitor speakers, lacked a remote control capability and didn't particularly look very good in my living room. Also I recently added a Panasonic BD player and was very impressed with the audio quality over the HDMI connection to the TV compared to that of my old, pre-HDMI DVD player.
Summary: I purchased the Yamaha RX-V465BL 525 along with the Klipsche HD500 for $700 bundle. Let me say that my old $300 Sony mini system sounds way better. I had blindly purchased this bundle without doing some homework or testing at the stores. I don't really know if its really the receiver or speakers but they're both worthless. First the Yamaha Receiver doesn't have too many options as far as equilizer (you get just the Treble and Bass).
Summary: I had owned a Yamaha AV receiver (which had to be repaired twice in the three years I owned it before it crashed and burned completely), but--sucker that I am--I decided I had just been unfortunate enough to get a lemon. I would give Yamaha one more shot because I liked the features, at least as they were described in various reviews, CNET, And then I sat down and began reading the manual.
Summary: I have read other peoples reviews who have had problems. One common problem seems to be from the cable boxes. for those who have had cutting out of a/v or flashing you have to switch the settings in the cable box menu, boom!! problem solved. now on to the review. simply no other quality name has this many features for the price!!
