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: 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.
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.
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.
Summary: After comparing units at the store, I decided that this would give the most value for cost. The important features were the 1080p upscaling, multiple HDMI inputs, multiple digital inputs, and a single HDMI output.
Summary: This receiver replaced a Denon in our living room and is a great buy. It has all of the features we needed plus some we don't and Yamaha sound quality (and hopefully reliability). Like any home theater receiver, set-up is a pain... lots of things to connect but the YPAO worked well.
Summary: I love my 765. I have to admit I am still learning what this thing can do. I sometimes feel it is like HAL from 2001 odyssey. I feel it is thinking. Thinking how it can scare its owner.... The installation was a breeze.
