not all that easy

  • 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. The sound does not go as loud as I would like it to.

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. Oh how disappointed we were! The basic setup was not complicated, but when we wanted to use some of the more advanced features, the owners manual was an almost impossible maze to navigate.

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. What it really means to say is "the cable is required so we can collect a few bucks when you want to play music from your Droid/iPhone through our receiver".

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. I particularly like the four "Scene" buttons which allow linked input sources and sound fields and switch the unit on with one action.

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. Nur stimmt diese Anleitung in einigen Punkten nicht mit meinem Gerät überein und ist allgemein recht verwirrend geschrieben. Dafür einen Stern Abzug.
