Very Pleased

Niran, Amazon
24 July 2010
  • 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.

Why didn't I buy this sooner?

  • Summary: Easy to set up except if you have a lot of connections you need to work left to right or you have troubles plugging everything in. Sound is great and I really like the Bluetooth dock.

Great sound

  • 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.

  • 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!

A. Cole, Amazon
20 March 2010
  • 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).

Good Product POOR PACKAGING

Brad M., Newegg
18 February 2010
  • Summary: This unit has plenty of features, tons of hookups, and sounds a lot better than a unit I returned. Auto upscaling is fantastic, so you only have to use a single HDMI cable for multiple different inputs. My only gripe: For a unit that is nearly $500 I would have expected a lot more.
  • Pros: Nice design, loaded with features, good sound, plenty of connections, does not seem to run hot, automatic speaker setup
  • Cons: SHIPPING, PACKAGING, HANDLING

Great Price alot of features.

David N., Newegg
8 October 2009
  • Summary: Great value for your dollar..If you don't need alot of power/volume.
  • Pros: Lots of features. Great price. Lots of inputs and all the inputs are renameable so someone like my wife can know what input to use as you can name things like 'VCR' or 'DVD' or WII etc...
  • Cons: You need to do the update yourself for the firmware. Its pretty simple in that you just download the update from Yamaha website, burn it to a disc as a CD song, hook up your DVD player to it and initiate the firmware update by playing the song. But still you shouldn't have to do this. As other us...

Very Good, but not great.

Anonymous, Newegg
3 June 2009
  • Summary: The Audio quality is great, the video upscaling on the Component inputs are great as well, however the upscaling on AV and S-Video are just decent. The Max volume on my old Pioneer 5.1 channel receiver would make your ears bleed, but I can easily turn this receiver to max volume and still not have...
  • Pros: 4 HDMI inputs with switching, Video Upscaling for S Video and Component and output through HDMI, Microphone setup that is a snap and couldnt possibly be easier. 7.1 Channel output. 2 Subwoofer Pre-outs which is excellent for large room setups. Assignable display titles for each independant input....
  • Cons: Even though it is 90w, the volume is still low on my JBL Northridge speakers. Manual is not very detailed. There is no onscreen display for what type of digital feed is being used (i.e. TrueHD, DolbyDigital, DTS-HD) even in standard passthrough mode. No HDMI Input on the front of the unit for thi...
