Summary: This receiver puts out superior sound! There are multiple sound fields that are pre-programmed with regard to base, treble, etc., that accommodate gaming and various music genres. When making the audio output adjustments; the screen is a bit shakey. The font looks actually like it is vibrating.
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.
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.
Summary: I've had this receiver I think for more than 2 years, probably 3. While certain other new receivers have fancy new additional types of features, when it comes to straight out working, with clean power and sound, this Yamaha receiver is hard to beat.
Pros: Large number of hookups for various components. Both amp and speaker outputs available. Amazingly powerful. Great Longevity for a receiver. Remote lasts for a long time.
Cons: Not 3D compatible. Interface for YPAO really minimal.
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.
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.
Summary: Looks great. I highly recommend the iPod dock also. You can control the iPod with the receiver remote and can't get any higher quality sound out of an iPod.
Pros: The automatic configuration tool that comes with this receiver is amazing. You won't understand what you were missing until you run it. I'm getting ready to replace my rears, center and sub-woofer and can't wait to see what this receiver can deliver with some upgraded speakers.
Cons: Consult the manual. You're missing out if you just plug everything in and turn it on. It takes time, but is so worth it.
Summary: Not one of Yamaha's best products (I have owned several). Overall a great amp for basic use, but lacking once you really want to set up a great home theater system. PROS: Auto set up feature is nice and easy to use 4 presets allows easy switching between devices and sound settings remote is clear...
