Summary: I always wanted a Yamaha and I was not disappointed. It's really good for it's price. The sound quality is really good and it has lots of nice sound modification choices, 5 or 6 for each type of music, video and others. These are the main reasons for buying it so I would rank if fairly high.
Need better explanation in manual of what buttons to setup

Summary: I bought this to replace a cheap Philips theater/dvd system that stopped working. I used the old 3 ohm speakers with this set, and bought a Yamaha YST-SW216BSL subwoofer. The sound is awesome.
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).
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.

Summary: I had these goals to satisfy with a new receiver: Virtual rear speakers: Rear speakers are a pain to wire and really limit your placement choices. This unit automatically simulates rear speakers when they are not detected via the YPAO auto setup.
Summary: I first purchased the RX-V365 for my living room. Being a complete newbie to HD audio, I thought this would be enough. Originally I had all my devices (HDMI) connected to my 37" Samsung TV with a single TOSLINK from the TV back to the receiver.
Summary: Very good sound, all the latest SS decoders, useful automatic 5.1 setup. Has all the power and features that is required for an entry to mid level HT. My only real complaints are that the surround output terminals are clips instead of binding post (conserves a bit of room) and that the digital a/v...
Summary: I've had the RX-v465 for over a month now, so i've had plenty of time to get comfortable with the receiver. I purchased this b/c it seemed like the best value. My major goals were to find a receiver that had HDMI vid and audio pass-thru and had good quality cd music output - and the rx-v465...
