After a year of having it off I just switched it to Auto and now all dialogue sounds almost as good as the movie theater

  • Summary: The most important thing to do if you buy this receiver is go into the function menu and switch "Adaptive DRC" to "Auto." For some reason Yamaha has it off by default and it makes watching movies sound muffled.

  • Summary: This receiver got a lot of features. I was not able to hook up my amplifer. It does have 30 presets for stations but they are all on one control 1-30. You have to go through all the presets to get to the one you want, as on others they have A,B,C,D with about 10 on each.

Not Up To Yamaha Standards

  • Summary: Our 30-year-old Yamaha 5.1 theater system was getting tired so we replaced it with the RXV675 7.1 system. Yamaha has the highest reputation for excellent equipment and that was borne out with our old unit, so we looked forward to an excellent experience with the new unit.

Nice receiver, but requires proprietary connector for Bluetooth

  • Summary: I'm quite happy with this receiver except for one glaring complaint: Yamaha requires you to purchase a proprietary cable to connect a Bluetooth device. The manual states "the cable is required [when pairing] for security purposes" (paraphrased). Please.

Wonderful receiver but not compatible with many cable boxes

  • Summary: I chose the Yamaha V665 after careful comparison with other units, and was very impressed with ease of setup and features. The sound quality is excellent, and while I had initial concerns with power output, at 90 watts it demonstrates more useable power than my previous NAD unit at 100 watts.

Sehr guter Receiver, aber.............

  • Summary: Zur Qualität des Gerätes brauche ich nichts mehr schreiben. Aber: Unser Gerät kam mit einer Anleitung auf Englisch und Russisch(?!). Beiliegend eine CD mit anderen Sprachen. Ich habe auf dieser CD eine Anleitung für den RX- V665, nicht wie bei einem anderen Rezensenten für den RX- V 765.
