Summary: I bought a place several months back and decided spending $475 was too much to spend updating my old Bose media center for Blu-Ray and HDMI. This receiver was a nice, cheap solution and it's got a ton of connectivity options.
Summary: I've been looking to buy a receiver and overall great surround sound for my home theater and I've personally been eyeing this Yamaha RXV665 receiver for a while now. Not only did i come across a deal on the receiver itself, but included was a deal as a whole bundle, which would complete my home...

Pros: Nice design, loaded with features, good sound, plenty of connections, does not seem to run hot, automatic speaker setup
Summary: I read review after review in research for my new receiver, and am happy to say that I decided on this one. I LOVE it! The surround sound is much more profound than my old Aiwa, the volume gets uncomfortably loud if need be, and it all seems crystal clear!
Summary: I purchased this receiver for the pre-outs, HDMI switching and the relatively cheap price, I think I paid $289. It works even better than I had hoped as far as passing the HDMI signal straihgt to the TV speakers when the receiver is not turned on, a feature that works great if you have someone who...
Great 7.1 receiver for price. Love the Zone 2 function!

Summary: Am very satisfied with the V665. Great sound quality, features and input/output options. I especially like the ability to simultaneously play one source in Zone 1 (e.g. TV in family room) and a second source in Zone 2 (e.g. CD/Ipod/FM/etc in living room).
