5 out of 5 eggsStands the test of time.

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.

Other Thoughts: 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. I'm pretty sure I bought it from Newegg and I have enjoyed it immensely. Over the years I've added 5.1 to 7.1 to now 7.2 speakers to the receiver and it continues to work just fine. The remote has stood the test of time as well, and still can control my Vizio television if necessary.

The whole reason and the point why I'm writing this review is that this is an old receiver and should be considered dated, but it's not. You can use other components to access the internet, do netflix, even probably upconvert to 4k when the time comes, and yet I'm not sure that the new receivers are actually any improvement sonically or has the ability to put out enough amplification for that many speakers. I probably won't upgrade this component for a long long time, because it's quite good and also because it would be a pain in the neck to reconnect all of those speakers, etc, LOL.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Buy

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Since the new models have been rolling in the price has been dropping for an amazing deal!

For a beginner audiophile this is a great entry level amp, beefier power supplier over the 665 and decent amount of inputs for connecting up equipment.

Setup was easy, controller learning curve isn't bad at all; it does exactly what I need it to do with room for expansion.

Cons: None at this moment

Other Thoughts: I have yet to build out a full 7.1 or 7.2 system to really test this amp but have been nothing but happy with it thus far.

Saw it on sale for a cheaper price than what I paid for but I also got a deal with an iPod dock thrown in so I'm not complaining.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Audio, Bad HDMI

Pros: Good build quality, great sound quality, and decently simple configuration procedure.

The YPAO auto setup does pretty well for a baseline setup, and sounds great after just a little tweaking (mainly pulling the sub levels up substantially). Sounds great in my family room with my Velodyne sub and Linaeum satellites.

Cons: Manual isn't the greatest, and the remote is old school. It isn't a learning remote, but one that needs to be programmed using codes.

Biggest issue though is the HDMI implementation. I don't know if it is a switching issue, or HDCP handshake issue, but it just does not reliably switch between HDMI inputs. Switching to my Apple TV (new) results in a corrupted display roughly half of the time. Switching to another input and back, or bringing up and then leaving the onscreen menu clears the issue. Sometimes, switching to my HTPC (also HDMI) forces it into the wrong resolution, requiring the computer to be rebooted. Bringing up the on screen menu will cause the HTPC to completely crash if a DVD is playing. Tried different HDMI cables and every different configuration I could think of to no avail. HDMI inputs simply do not switch reliably.

Other Thoughts: Stupidly, I didn't think to exchange the unit within the Newegg RMA period, so I don't know if my issues are a faulty unit or just bad HDMI implementation. I'll likely just live with it though, as I'd rather not deal with Yamaha's repair process. I got a great price on the receiver, so even if this is normal behavior for this model, it's still worth the hassle.

5 out of 5 eggsnot your average receiver

Pros: The price/quality ratio is high; a moderately strong receiver with lots of room for growth. Although it did not come with the Blue Tooth adapters, you can add it on aftermarket to stream off other electronic such as your phone. Sirius ready, can dock with Ipod, lots of possible wiring options. I'm using the 5.1 set up as I don't have the extra speakers for 7.2; and I can upgrade later or use the extra speaker outs for another room entirely. Was able to have it auto detect the speaker settings by hooking up the included microphone in the center of my room. It's heavier than my last Kenwood or Sony; plenty of power at 680-ish watts. Nice specs for a mid range priced reciever. The advised retail is like 650 as of 11/10/10, and I was able to get it for lessa than half that. Batteries on the report wer included :-)

Cons: It could be my lack of understanding on set up for adding in other components, but I have to set the speakers to sysnthesize surround sound when watching movies using a USB drive from my DVD player. That may be due to the sound track limitations and not the receiver. Not a con, really more of a note.

Other Thoughts: I chose to not run the HDMI out from my computer's video card through the receiver since my video card does not have an internal sound card; if it did, I would get true 5.1 surround sound instead of the "virtual" simulation I get from running a stereo jack out of Creative labs card. Or...I could upgrade the sound card.

For the price, I am please as all get out. I have it hooked up to a set of Pinnacle speakers I got from Dell, and together spend less than $700 incuding shipping. Such a deal! I use this setup for listening to music, playing computer games, watching vids from the computer Blue Ray, DVDs, USB, everything that I have I can run through this.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent sound but somewhat disappointing…

Pros: Nice variety and plenty of video inputs (NO SVIDEO). There's also a composite video jack on the front but strangely no HDMI.

Video up conversion of composite and component video to 1080p. This can be quite finicky and funky though; I'll explain later.

Excellent variety of sound options from 7ch Enhancer to Pure Direct; the receiver has a plethora of sound enhancement modes for you to discover and to enjoy.

Automatic sound adjustment for optimal sound. Just plug the included microphone in and let the receiver run a series of sound test to achieve nice level balance.

Decent sound with multi zone output ability. It also has a built in sound equalizer which can be tweaked or disabled plus tone and bass controls. You can really tinker with the sound to get it just right. From level, distance to speaker size; this receiver will keep you busy for quite awhile.

Ability to rename input that's being displayed on the LCD of the receiver. This is more useful than it first appears. V

Cons: No Svideo input. This doesn't sound like much but if you’re an avid video game collector or like to have a variety of electronics both old and new then the lack of a Svideo jack is going to hurt.

Poor video up conversion; really disappointing. I have an SNES, NES, Genesis and a N64 that the receiver will not detect and convert video to 1080p. Video from my VCR will be detected and up converted but only when the video plays. If I pause, stop a tape or display the VCR's menu then all you get is a black screen; unacceptable and very annoying.

Primitive and archaic On Screen Menu. We are talking about Colecovision display quality here. Perhaps Intellivision would be a better analogy. The On Screen Menu is fugly. And when I say fugly I mean conspicuously ugly indeed.

No front HDMI input port. It does have composite front jacks but HDMI is sorely omitted. Very strange design choice.

Other Thoughts: Overall the receiver is decent but not great. The lack of Svideo and the poor 1080p up conversion of analog sources really is disappointing. I upgraded from an old Kenwood VR 707 expecting to be blown away and I wasn't. The sound is marginally better at best.

Also about once a week the receiver will stop producing HDMI video output for some strange reason and the LCD becomes totally black with no display when Setup or option is pressed.

The only way to remedy this is to unplug the unit for about 2 minutes. I returned one unit already because of this and the problem came back with the new replacement. I'm really stumped why this is happening but I'm blaming the poor quality of the video up conversion that the receiver has as Analog output still works but not HDMI.

My final say is that the receiver has decent sound and a nice variety of options but poor video up conversion. If you're looking for a receiver that can convert analog signals flawlessly to digital then look elsewhere

5 out of 5 eggsgreat

Pros: tons of connection options that will work for anyone and any tv/dvd player.

Cons: non so far

Other Thoughts: interesting settings such as setting it for sports, role playing games, action movies, ext. though I'm not quite clear on the differences between any of these yet. Would recommend to anyone that wants an upgrade from an old surround sound receiver.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff

Pros: Detailed instructions to help newbies like me.

Cheap price

4 HDMI ports are awesome. PS3/360/PC are all hooked up now with one more slot available.

Sounds great even with minimal adjustments.

Cons: I just wish I had more knowledge with this kind of stuff so I can take advantage of all of its features. Back to reading the manual lol.

Other Thoughts: I'm no audiophile but even I can tell the difference between my old 7.1 Amplifier and this one.

My old amplifier was having issues and would only output to 2.1 so I upgraded to this. Finally getting true 5.1 and 7.2 surround sound now. Blu-ray movies sounded great.

4 out of 5 eggsYamaha RX-V765

Pros: 7.2ch with possible 9.2 using zone 2 set up. Tons of connection points. Easy setup. Running in 6.1 right now and loving it. Paired it with a set of Onkyo SKS-HT870 speakers, I know they're not "high priced" speakers but they sound great and had a friend of mine that built his own system piece by piece jealous of the sound quality.

Cons: Wish it had 1 more optical in. Newegg definitely screwd the pooch on the packaging and it will ship in the factory Yamaha box, be warned! The box did sustain damage but the receiver seems to be fine. Tisk tisk Newegg thought you where better than this.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Receiver, great sound, built well.

Pros: Great multi-input options, and ability to name each input to match components and signal types! Built like a tank, fell two feet off my shelf, and crashed on the hardwood floor without as much as a scuff or any kind of flaw. Sounds great even with 6 Ohm speakers as mains. The "Presence" speaker option instead of rear centers speaker output is a good feature. Not too deep in size like some other receivers.

Cons: Price dropped $20 after I ordered it, but still worth it.
Remote is kind of like from 1998.
The on-screen setup looks like DOS 6.22 but it works well.

Other Thoughts: Yamaha Quality in the transformers and output transistors and under 4 bills , can't go wrong.
