Yamaha RX-V1065 review

 

The RX-V1065 is a seriously good multichannel receiver, and a major return to form for Yamaha

Decent build ; sensational surround processing ; taut, weighty and powerful sound

Dialogue could sound a smidgen clearer

The '1065 will definitely be duelling with the class-leaders at this price point, come Awards time. A seriously good multichannel receiver

Yamaha RX-V765 review

 

Yamaha's RX-V765 is the model above the RX-V565. It's supremely talented but falls just short of getting the full five-star star rating

Surround processing ; immersive sound ; even tonal balance

Input assignment issues ; lacks the dynamic brilliance of the best at the price

A very talented amp that’s just lacks some sonic polish

Yamaha RX-V565 review

 

The Yamaha RX-V565 is a competent HD receiver capable of intimacy and detail, and good music playback, but bass lacks punch

Solid build ; accurate auto set-up ; detailed, rich sound ; good bass weight

Input assignment issues ; not as dynamic or exciting to listen to as the class-leaders

Perfectly decent, just not the daddy at this price point

Yamaha RX-V1065 A/V Receiver

 

At first glance, the Yamaha RX-V1065 A/V receiver seems to be missing several of the latest and greatest features. By that I mean it doesn't have the licensed goodies and their accompanying logos, the little things that manufacturers use to encourage...
