Yamaha RX-V465 review

 

Yamaha's RX-V465 is the cheapest AV receiver here and is designed for simple home cinema setups.

The only 5.1 model here, this low-cost and easy-to-use AV receiver has good audio quality, produces great directional audio and is superb value.

Yamaha RX-V465 5.1 Home Theater Receiver

 

This past year we reached a place where almost anyone can enjoy surround sound. There are two paths to home theater nirvana - or at least the start if it: a home theater-in-a-box system, or building a 5.1 system from quality entry level components....

Yamaha RX-V465 5.1 Home Theater Receiver Preview

 

Yamaha's RX-V465, with its price of just $299.95 makes it one of the least expensive ways to get into an HDMI-equipped AV receiver. The receiver has four HDMI inputs, each which captures HD audio.

Best bang for your buck!

 

I researched a long time to find the best receiver for my budget, and this is it. The V565 is also nice, but i had no need for 7.1 so this was a great buy!

This receiver has an impressive list of features for the price. When you take the time to start messing with the features it will blow you away. Free ipod dock included with purchase!! Great deal

Instruction manual isn't the greatest, some level of tech savvy is needed but really not difficult

Great Value!

 

Lots of ways to plug all my stuff in! Set up was super easy. Shipping was super quick, maybe just about 2 or 3 days. VERY good price

This is my first new receiver so I don't know what to compare it to

Very nice

 

upgraded from a 1999 model JVC 500w receiver that still sounds good, moving it upstairs.

Sounds great, very programmable, links up with my Sharp 52" LCD just fine

no OSM, remote is very 80's

Overscan

 

It's a receiver

Causes overscan on my Westinghouse TV when fed with 1080p HDMI signal. Same signals passed directly to TV work just fine (PC and Xbox360)

YAMAHA 5.1-Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver RX-V465

 

Awesome product, works great just as it should. This reciever is powerfull enough to power some good floor standing speakers if you wanted to. I use only satilite speakers however and don't use it to the full potential. The remote is very well laid...

Great Budget HD Receiver

 

My rx-V465 powers a Klipsch HD 300 surround speaker system (just the sats) and a Polk PSW-110 sub. I've got a Dish Network VIP 612 HD DVR and a PS3 Slim 120gb connected via HDMI. The HDMI output is connected to an LCD TV.

4 HDMI inputs, Dolby TrueHD, DTS Master decoding, YPAO speaker calibration, great speaker setup options, ipod dock compatible, 3.5mm audio jack for other mp3 players ; For what it is - a 5.1 HD Receiver, it does its job wonderfully. Clean, strong...

No cons - I bought this for my bedroom. I have an rx-V663 in the living room HT w/ iPod dock, so I knew the features that would be available / missing before hand on the 465 - no surprises/disappointments
