Great audio output, not so savory GUI

Robert, Amazon
24 January 2015
  • 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.

Competent amp that's just "OK"

alexander minevich, Amazon
6 January 2015
  • 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 and easy to use Yamaha customer support is actually pretty good (even when out of warranty). CONS: This is NOT a good amp if you are an audiophile.

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!

rhamza, Amazon
29 May 2014
  • 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.

yamaha a company with defective issues

jill, Amazon
19 August 2012
  • Summary: bought my rx-v765 reciever worked great for about a year than the hdmi board went out of it. Sent it to the nearest authorized dealer in New York, Had to go a couple of days without a reciever and than it showed up worked great until 8 months after the repair. Same thing HDMI board went out. Not sure I would recommend Yamaha to anyone if the parts are defective. I read someone else had these issues after I started experiencing them.

Not For Music

boat, Amazon
27 February 2012
  • 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!
