Yamaha RX-V565BL

 

Editors' note : The Yamaha RX-V565BL is virtually identical to the Yamaha HTR-6250BL , therefore the reviews are essentially the same. For an explanation of why Yamaha has two model names for each receiver, read the company's FAQ .

Four HDMI inputs; onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding; upconverts analog video signals to 1080p; automatic speaker calibration system; relatively inexpensive 7.1 AV receiver.

Competitors offer more features for the same price; cannot assign audio inputs; poor image quality on upconverted analog video signals; lacks a multichannel analog input; no multiroom functionality; onscreen display looks outdated; cluttered remote.

The Yamaha RX-V565BL works well as part of the Yamaha YHT-791BL home theater system, but it doesn't fare as well when compared to other standalone AV receivers.

The RX-V765 features Yamaha's "signature lively sound that is quite enjoyable and mates well with a lot of today's modern music and movies." The receiver has only 95 watts but "sounds far more powerful than it actually is." That leaves this model "one...

While four HDMI inputs are pretty much standard these days, I can't help but think a fifth or even a sixth would be beneficial, given the RX-V765's focus on current HD technologies ; I don't like how Yamaha has packed so many goodies into the RX-V765...

It's amazing to think that, over a year ago, a receiver packing as much performance as the RX-V765 would've cost you near two grand, if not more. Here we are approaching the fall of 2009, and that same receiver is now $650. That, my friends, is...
