Competent amp that's just "OK"

alexander minevich, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • 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.

TiVoHD Owners Beware

Frank Hamilton, Amazon
2 August 2010
  • Summary: I was really excited to get this unit. It was my first new receiver in years and based on the excellent reviews I thought I had found the perfect receiver. Unfortunately there is a drawback I can't get around, it does not play well with TiVo HD. Every time I change the channel on the TiVo the Yamaha re-seeks the audio source which results in a digital "chirp." I called both TiVo and Yamaha, who both blamed the problem on each other and pretty much told me "too bad.

DVI Does not work on this unit

glrobson, Ebay
18 April 2010
  • Summary: I was surprised to find that there was no way to connect my Shaw Direct Sattelite Receiver DVI output. Even with the DVI output converted to HDMI and sound bypass I could not get it going. Other than that issue I have not discovered any shortcomings.

It is a good receiver unless it needs repair.

  • Summary: I installed a home theatre system for a friend recently and my choice of receivers was the Yamaha RXV-765. The receiver was 4 months old when the HDMI board went out. I called to find a repair center and the closest was Atlanta, GA, about 600 miles from my SW Florida home. Return shipping had to be paid along with a deposit of $69.00. A week or two later I was told that Yamaha's warranty only covered items purchased at authorized dealers, not from eBay stores.

Super Gerät mit DTS HD und mehr ...

Klaus Meinders "Klaus", Amazon
29 September 2009
  • Summary: Ich hatte 2 Jahre einen Yamaha 2700, und war sehr zufrieden. Da ich aber die DTS HD und Dolby True-HD Tonspuren der Aktuellen Blu-Rays in meinem Heimkino hören wollte, musste ein neuen Receiver her. Zuerst hatte ich mir den Yamaha RX-V765 bestellt, da er überall so gut bewertet wurde. Der Sound war auch wirklich gut. Jedoch das On Screen Menü absolut unbrauchbar. Die Einstellungsmöglichkeiten für die Eingänge waren auch bescheiden. Man kann z.b.
