Terrible support

  • Summary: The HDMI out to TV never worked right. After owning the receiver for one year, the Hdmi board failed completely. I had to take unit 100 miles away to the only uthoriized service in South Florida. After 10 days, I picked up the system and it was in the same condition.

  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Nice brick. If you buy this receiver you will have to flash the firmware if you want to have audio out through your HDMI.

New receiver, bad design

Randall Streck, Amazon

  • Summary: Just wanted to let everyone know, that although this is a new model receiver Yamaha left out assignable audio and video inputs. I just got off the phone with Yamaha pre sale support and they confirmed this on the models 465, 565, 665, 765, no assignable inputs.
