This receiver does everything I want it to, and then after carefully reading the manual, I realized it does a few other things that I was pleased about.The best surprise was discovering this receiver has a HDMI pass-through capability. In a lot of cases when we watch TV, we are fine with the TV speakers. Don't really want to fire up the whole system just to watch the weather. I was intending to run the HDMI from the cable set top box directly to the TV and then running a digital optical from the...

I've had the RX-v465 for over a month now, so i've had plenty of time to get comfortable with the receiver. I purchased this b/c it seemed like the best value. My major goals were to find a receiver that had HDMI vid and audio pass-thru and had good quality cd music output - and the rx-v465 delivered!PROS:I used the mic to auto-calibrate the sound quality - very easy (do this before using it). CDs (analog) sound great and digital audio sounds even better. The sound settings are great: it has sev...

I first purchased the RX-V365 for my living room. Being a complete newbie to HD audio, I thought this would be enough. Originally I had all my devices (HDMI) connected to my 37" Samsung TV with a single TOSLINK from the TV back to the receiver. It took about 3 weeks before I realized what was going on: the TV only outputs 2-channel PCM via the TOSLINK when using HDMI. I had to go to Samsung's website and thumb through several FAQ's before I stumbled upon that little bit of info.After a bit of re...

A little sleeper
 
This review is from: Yamaha HTR-6240BL 525-Watt 5-Channel Home Theater Receiver (Electronics) I'm puzzled by the other review - am using it to drive 5 fairly inefficient speakers and it will play quite loudly and without thermal shutdown. Who knows? In any case, it came as a surprise to me that such a modest unit could pump out such clean, robust sound on high-end speakers (Martin-Logan) without apparent strain. That is has the new audio codecs is why I bought it. My only nigg...

Excellent receiver!
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-V465BL 525 Watt 5-Channel Home Theater Receiver (Electronics) The RX-V465 serves as a key component of my updated home theater system that includes a Sony blu-ray player and a Samsung 61" HDTV. All connections to and from the Yamaha receiver are HDMI, so I've happily eliminated the familiar "snake farm" found behind typical multi-component systems. And the surround sound results from DVD, Blu-Ray, and Satellite TV inputs are wonderful - in great me...

When I set out to buy a receiver, I almost instantly settled on the Yamaha brand because of its excellent reputation and the fact I could sync up my lap top to it to play music through the bluetooth device (Yamaha YBA-10WH Bluetooth Wireless Audio Receiver for Select Yamaha Home Theater Receivers). My media center is also fully enclosed so I didn't want a unit that would run hot. I wasn't terribly concerned with format decoding or watts because I was using a DVD player that did all the decodin...

Priced right, great features at this price point
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-V465BL 525 Watt 5-Channel Home Theater Receiver (Electronics) I was searching for a new HDMI 5.1 receiver to replace my old Sony (pre hdmi) receiver. Found this unit on Amazon and checked out all available web sites for reviews.This receiver had all the features I wanted for 5.1 use,105 watts/ch,lossless audio decoding for blu-ray discs,and the price was great compared to other brands.The manual was good but you may need to read thru it several tim...

For those wondering if the Yamaha RX-V465 passes audio to your surround speakers through the HDMI jacks, wonder no more because it does. I just purchased one today from Fry's Electronics Store (for $329.00) to replace my old Yamaha HTR 6050 receiver, and after changing the factory default settings, I did recieved audio to my 5.1 speakers.Make sure your HDTV is connected to the HDMI Out jack and your Blu-ray player is connected to the HDMI 1 BD/DVD jack on the back of the unit. Turn on the unit a...

AWESOME!
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-V465BL 525 Watt 5-Channel Home Theater Receiver (Electronics) Got this to replace my Yamaha HTR-5630. Awesome receiver, I love it! Setup was super easy thanks to the YPAO auto-setup feature. The Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio features reproduce some phenominal life-like sound. I only have 2 speakers hooked up but Virtual Cinema DSP creates virtual speakers that makes it sound like I have a full 5.1 channel speaker setup. If you're looking fo...

HDMI-Challenged Receiver
 
This review is from: Yamaha RX-V465BL 525 Watt 5-Channel Home Theater Receiver (Electronics) I bought this receiver based on the reviews. There seems to be some controversy about what HDMI pass-through means, so rather than debate it, I won't use that term in this review.I bought this receiver and returned it because it is so HDMI-challenged that for my purposes, it was totally useless. I wanted to connect 4 HDMI devices to this receiver. I also wanted to output t...
