Summary: This purchase was a replacement for an older Yamaha receiver which gave fine service for many years but was not HDMI compatible. I was amazed at the advances and improvements in the capabilities of this receiver. The FM antenna is poor for receiving FM radio signals, however, and a TERK antenna is necessary in my setup.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Controls everything, Easy Setup, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
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: Purchased the RX-V465 because I finally made the jump to high-def and needed the HDMI inputs to complete the home theater setup. I had two older A/V receivers and neither had HDMI inputs. I chose this particular model for a number of good reasons. 1. It was relatively inexpensive (had already spent enough money on an HD LCD TV, new TV stand, blu-ray player, and upgrading my cable service to HD) 2.
