very good

  • Summary: 5 years ago this was a good deal and now the same thing with extra WI-FI features is at least twice the cost, if you can find a used one of these for less than 200 bucks, you have very good 6 channel surround sound unit.

great pawn shop purchase!

  • Summary: I've been in the market for a good receiver for the past few years. I've been looking in the sub $200 market because I don't have a huge budget, so when I saw this receiver at a pawn shop with the price tag of $189 I nearly jumped on it immediately, paying full price. But I shopped around for a few more hours and came back a little more informed. It didn't have a remote, and was missing a few key components that were needed to set it up, the mic for example.

Excellent ebay seller. Great transaction.

  • Summary: Works great. The RX-V765 has all of the latest options for home theater and the sound is fantastic. Paired this up with my Boston Acoustics surround sound speakers and WOW, it blew me away. Exactly what I was looking for. I would recomment this receiver to anyone who wants a BIG sound for a very reasonable price.

Not For Music

boat, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased the Yamaha RX-V765 for listening to music and the surround sound was also a priority. It is not all that music friendly. The amp's great for its selection of component plug-in options, also one of the reasons for purchasing the RX-V765. I was drawn to the Yamaha because of its good history as a rock solid music amp. Not for music anymore. Fewer presets and more "knob control" would be wonderful. The amp was WISELY presented in the store with Klipsh speakers.

Better than expected. Powers everything without breaking a sweat!

  • Summary: I wanted to add some punch to our AV (if you wanted to call it that) system. Researched and Yamaha was the brand that presented the best power to features to price relationship. I love mine and i have room to grow.

RX-765 sound quality

Jazzman, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • Summary: After a couple of months of ownership I was tired of straining to hear the dialog. I thought it was just me but then my wife mentioned it, so I started tweaking and trying different surround modes and boosting the center channel etc. Nothing seemed to really make it clear so I finally took my Carver AV-705 5-channel amp out of storage and inserted it in the pre-amp out loop. I gotta tell you the difference is day and night!

Bad a$$ receiver

jameslever68, Ebay
5 February 2011
  • Summary: I've had an older model of this receiver for many years. Over time the remote got "kid" damage to it. The receiver depends largely on the remote for many personalized functions. I found a replacement for it finally at a reasonable price on ebay and bought it. But because of not having HDMI connections, I just decided to look for a new one. There were many options, but Yamaha was the only way to go. Now I have my old one and my new one.

Great Reciever

Roy E. Heffner, Amazon

  • Summary: What a great piece of equipment. I saved almost half the cost buying it on Amazon rather than going to buy it at Best Buy or another store in the box. It takes some time to learn how to use it but once you do it is awsome.
