Digital ToP-ART and High Current Amplification
Digital ToP-ART is a comprehensive design philosophy that strategically utilizes high quality parts, circuit designs and technologies to most effectively maximize sound quality. The interior layout isolates the digital, analog and video sections to eliminate interference and shorten signal routes. High Current Amplification optimizes performance by achieving high current power with low impedance. The RX-V1065 also offers discrete amplification circuitry.
Highest Picture Quality For High-Definition Displays
Upscaling ensures highest picture
quality on HD displays
This new receiver provides HDMI (4 in/1 out), with support for 1080p resolution. Customers can connect multiple HDMI sources and enjoy the highest possible video quality when using a 1080p monitor. The RX-V1065 is also capable of repeating 1080p/24fps signals from HDMI input to output, maintaining the high image quality from Blu-ray Disc players and HDTV Set Top Boxes.
HDMI Digital Signal Upscaling and Deinterlacing
This is a function that upscales analog composite and component 480i or 480p signals to 1080i/720p HD signals or even 1080p Full HD signals so they can be output digitally with an HDMI cable and viewed at highest quality on high-definition displays. In addition, the analog video signals are deinterlaced from 480i to 480p and are output over an HDMI cable.
Advanced FeaturesNew SCENE Buttons (BD/DVD, TV, CD, and Radio): Quick and Simple to Use
Simple one button source/surround mode selection
You can operate an external component with the receiver remote control by setting a remote code for the external component for each input source. Setting remote codes for desired input sources allows you to switch between external components linked to SCENE selections.
YPAO Sound Optimization
This automatic sound optimization system analyzes the acoustics of the room and measures seven speaker characteristics, then calibrates various audio parameters to achieve the optimum sound at the listening position. The process takes only a few minutes and is accomplished using the included room optimization microphone.
CINEMA DSP 3D expands
the sound field
This is an upgraded version of CINEMA DSP that uses the two presence speakers in the 7-channel configuration to give the sound field an enhanced vertical dimension. HiFi DSP programs sound more natural, closer to the feeling of being in a concert hall with a high ceiling or a club where the sound seems to bounce up from the floor. CINEMA DSP programs have a greater feeling of height that gives sounds coming from above, such as a helicopter, more precise localization.
Enhanced Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
Yamaha's Adaptive DRC technology automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume that is selected. Adaptive DRC refines the dynamic range parameters to make low volume sounds easier to hear (narrower dynamic range) while retaining the massiveness felt during high volume (wider dynamic range). And because our ears lose sensitivity to low and high sounds as volume decreases, it continually adjusts these frequency ranges according to the volume and to the input signal level.
New GUI On-Screen Display
New GUI makes operation extremely easy
The on-screen GUI (Graphical User Interface) makes operating the RXV1065 extremely easy. Each menu item has an icon in addition to the title, for easier identification, and album art will be displayed. Using the cursor on the remote, it is easy to make various selections, such as Setup, which then leads to other options, such as video adjustments. Each can be quickly selected and adjusted, and other operations, such as the Play control for all sources are also fast. After getting the feel of the remote, everyone will find this GUI a pleasure to use.
Expanded Radio EnjoymentHD Radio Tuner Built In
HD Radio offers crystal-clear sound via existing AM/FM bands. It also provides program data and the ability to tune to multiple programs at the same dial position. The RX-V1065 will display HD Radio information on the front panel and on the TV screen.

Flexible Video Upconversion
Connects to a TV with a single cable
Video Upconversion converts signals from composite and component terminals to higher quality HDMI, as shown to the right. This ensures the highest possible picture quality from the RX-V1065 to a monitor or TV via a single cable. It also performs down conversion among component and composite signals.
USB Port for Portable DevicesListen Via USB
If you have music stored on USB sticks or USB portable audio players, you can plug them into the USB port and select and enjoy them via the remote control. This is also an easy way for friends to share their music with you.

I then went to hook up my 765 in my cave TV room, first thing that I noticed was that is basically identical to the 1065, sure the menu system is not as polished but as far as the functionality that I need it is the same. I have a few year old Bose surround sound in this room with a JBL center chanel speaker and what a HUGE difference this receiver made over my old Onkyo, the Onkyo was really good for music but surround sound was sub par, but it was 10 years old I guess. Granted I'm only hooking up a Xbox 360, blue ray and TV in this room but watching Vikes beat up the the Packers in surround sound with this receiver was great, I haven't figured out which sound field I like best but there are a couple perfect for sports.Read more ›
Unlike some other receivers from Yamaha, this one is rated 120w @ 1KHz, not the 20-20K they usually rate power from. So expect this one to be MUCH quieter than an older RX-V 100w rated @ 20-20k.
You are unable to assign audio inputs to video inputs and must use the inputs as they are preset, except for adding a video source to the multi-channel audio inputs. So if you own a Wii, you will be going back to a 480i composite cable instead of the 480p component cables as you are forced to use either a coax or optical digital audio with component inputs. I bought a separate external Component/analog audio-HDMI converter box to bypass this miserable design flaw as I am using my only 2 composite w/analog audio inputs already. The receiver is none-the-wiser.
The remote is NOT programmable. It comes with some codes for various preset electronics. It has a paltry 4 Bluray player codes. Don't expect a total control remote.
There are 4 HDMI inputs, 1 Component w/Optical audio, 1 Component w/Coax audio, 1 Composite w/Coax audio, 1 Composite w/Optical audio, 2 standard Composite video w/analog L&R audio, 2 straight analog audio inputs, and 1 phono input. It comes with a front Composite w/Analog audio. There is a 6.2 multi-channel input for those that like that sort of thing (note: No sound fields work at all when using that input). There is also connections for Blueooth, an iPod and Sirius/XM radio.
On a high note, the sound is everything you have come to expect from Yamaha (albeit quieter). The sound fields are scroll through now instead of individual. But have wonderful ambiance.Read more ›
When purchasing this receiver, I kind of went against the grain and bought it without doing a lot of research first. I went with this model because it was the only one in my price range ($500 marked down from $900) at the local Best Buy that had grounded phono inputs -- and I still like listening to my old vinyl.
I initially started using this as a 5.1 system because of my small room size. Within a few weeks, I added two speakers -- and I went from very happy to extremely pleased, even amazed. CDs played directly from my Blu-Ray player sound absolutely awesome -- again detail and clarity that are quite good for a unit in this price range. This unit has settings that will convert just about any source CD into great-sounding 7.1 channels that emanate from almost everywhere in of your listening room. I'm tending to use the 7-channel enhancer setting the most for CDs and records.
It took me awhile to figure out how to change the settings to get 7.1 sound out of 5.1 Blu-Rays -- and it is excellent. One very important tip: When using the microphone auto calibration, make sure you select the FRONT Equalizer setting. At least for my ear, this produced the warmest sound for all my sources. For some reason, the manual doesn't mention these selection choices at all.
It does take some time to get to know the ins and outs of this receiver. Like most electronics manuals, the one that comes with this isn't that good -- and, for me, I have a lot of catching up with technology to do.Read more ›
