Summary: I have had good luck with Yamaha in the past so I gave this one a shot based on it's "zone 2" abilities. I had it up and running in minutes and the unit performs very well. I am not using much of it's video switching capabilities but it works well for what I have tried.
Summary: A very good receiver so far. I haven't had a chance to fully explore all the functions yet. Set-up a little problematic for balancing the speakers using the microphone. Kept getting errors for no reason. Manual needs improvement for novices to understand.
Summary: So, overall I'm really happy with this receiver - it does just about everything they promised it would, and it sounds spectacular combined with the Polk speakers I bought to go with it. But....
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).
Summary: I got this receiver to compliment my Samsung 46" LED screen. The unit is pushing JBL tower speakers and sub with JBL small bookshelves for the surrounds. First of all, the sound is great-clear and airy with no distortion that I can detect. Setup is fairly easy with the included microphone.
GREAT SOUND, AND INPUTS BUT IT HAS NOT UNIVERSAL VOLTS

Summary: This receiver is almost identical to the 565 which I just purchased. There are two model numbers for the 565 AV Receiver as disclosed on CNET. One model number is the Yamaha RX-V565BL 630 Watt 7-Channel Home Theater Receiver , the other is the Yamaha HTR-6250BL 630 Watt 7-Channel Home Theater...
Summary: Hallo.. wollte nur mal kurz ein Statement abgeben. Daher der Rx V 665 eine Mischung zwischen dem 565 und dem 765 ist war ich am Anfang etwas skeptisch. Probieren geht über studieren. Also das Ding bestellt, 2 Tage später angekommen und gleich angeschlossen.
