Yamaha's New Home Theater Hub

Yamaha's new 630-Watt 7-Channel RX-V565 Home Theater Receiver offers many advanced features to ensure maximum enjoyment of your home entertainment sources. These include 1080p-compatible HDMI (4-input, 1-output), XM and SIRIUS Satellite Radio capability, iPod and Bluetooth compatibility, Yamaha CINEMA DSP, improved YPAO sound optimization, multi-zone custom installation options, and four SCENE buttons.

Multiple inputs make the RX-V565 your home theater hub

High Dynamic Power Capability for Great Sound
The Yamaha RX-V565 is capable of delivering large amounts of reserve power for accurate reproduction of the high energy peaks that are especially prevalent in digital audio sources. This prevents clipping and emphasizes the music's dynamic qualities. This receiver also uses high-quality Burr-Brown 192kHz/24-bit DACs for all channels. The DACs provide accurate sound field reproduction for high-quality multi-channel sources, and outstanding separation and precise musical delineation for two-channel sources.

CINEMA DSP Digital for Enhanced Surround Realism
Conventional multi-channel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent sound fields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects ideally located in these separate sound fields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater. The decoding circuitry performs Dolby TrueHD and DTS_HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio with extreme accuracy, as well as all digital sound field processing.

Audio Delay Compensation Keeps Your Experience On Track
The latest display devices perform complex internal processing, causing time lag in the video signal. It is a small difference, but because the audio arrives first, the viewer may feel that something is not natural. The Audio Delay function for adjusting Lip-Sync matches the audio to the timing of the output of the video on the screen (0-240ms).


HDMI upgrades for higher-than-ever quality

Refresh your MP3s with the Compressed Music Enhancer
1080p Video Upscaling and Deep Color (30/36-bit) Transmission
The HDMI interface upgrades the transmission of standard, enhanced, and high-definition video signals via HDMI for higher-than-ever quality through a single cable. With four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output, you can connect a variety of high-definition sources such as Blu-ray Disc or HD-DVD players and switch easily among them.

The Yamaha RX-V565 supports the latest HDMI 30- and 36-bit color depths, improved from the 24-bit depth of previous versions. This "Deep Color" allows the rendering of billions of colors for far greater accuracy. Colors are so vivid they seem to jump off the screen, with perfectly smooth tonal transitions and ultra-fine gradations between colors. It also enables many times more shades of gray, for higher contrast ratio.

Component Video Upconversion with TBC
The Yamaha RX-V565 is equipped with high-definition video upconversion circuitry incorporating high-performance video encoder/decoders from Analog Devices. A Time Base Corrector (TBC) transforms degraded analog video signals into a stable format for distortion-free viewing.

Compressed Music Enhancer Refreshes Your Music
Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3 and WMA. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.


Optional docks for your iPod or Bluetooth phone
set your music free
Next-Gen Connectivity and Flexibility
In addition to great video and sound quality, the Yamaha RX-V565 lets you bring music from multiple next-generation sources into your home. It is equipped to use Yamaha's optional YBA-10 Bluetooth Wireless Audio Receiver, giving you the flexibility to stream music from Bluetooth enabled mobile phones, portable devices and even your personal computer. The optional YDS-11 Universal iPod Dock connects the RX-V565 to all versions of Apple's iPod, giving you the power to navigate and play via an onscreen menu.

SILENT CINEMA and Virtual CINEMA DSP
SILENT CINEMA makes it possible to hear large-scale surround sound through ordinary headphones. This is a variation of CINEMA DSP technology that Yamaha developed to let you listen in private to movies and other multi-channel sources for hours without listening fatigue. Virtual CINEMA DSP lets you enjoy the effects of CINEMA DSP surround sound without using surround speakers, perfect for use in custom installations where some rooms don't have surround speakers. It can be used with the front/center/presence speakers, or even with just the two front left and right speakers.

Improved YPAO for Hassle-Free Configuration
Yamaha's YPAO Sound Optimization system analyzes the acoustics of the room and adjusts various speaker parameters to provide optimum sound quality at the listening position--all in less than three minutes. Yamaha's YPAO system uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters, such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers and even the sound pressure level, etc. It does this until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room, and you don't have to adjust a thing. The Yamaha RX-V565 has an improved YPAO system that automatically selects the crucial frequency bands for the listening room, and then adjusts the level of the selected bands to create a cohesive sound field in the room.

SCENE - A New Level of Operating Ease
Four SCENE buttons make operating the Yamaha RX-V565 easier than ever. Pressing a single SCENE button automatically launches the multiple operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. They are initially set to default settings for DVD Viewing, Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, XM Listening, TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing.

On-Screen Display Makes Navigation Easy
An on-screen display makes operating the Yamaha RX-V565 easy and intuitive. Access and control everything you need from a simple and easy-to-navigate interface.

Set-up was easy and auto speaker set-up function worked great.

I am not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination and am generally happy and satisfied with very good, high quality stereo systems.

I ask you, why would that person make note of which inputs he/she had hooked up a WII and Ipod to?

There are two model numbers for this AV Receiver as disclosed on CNET. One model number is the RX-V565BL, the other is the HTR-6250BL, which I purchased. At various times, the prices of the two vary on Amazon, so I just went with the cheaper one. I coupled the receiver with the Energy Take Classic 5.1 and was able to get two satellites on Ebay to complete a 7.1 speaker system. To round out the system I have the Mitsubishi DLP 73". I also have the PS3, xbox360 and Wii hooked up.

Unlike another reviewer who had a problem with his Tivo Series 3 with RX-V565 version of the receiver, I had no problem at all. If you have a problem with the HDMI, just use the Tivo component out and digital optical out direct into the Yamaha. It works perfectly.

The biggest problem I had in hook up was my inability to connect the Wii directly through the Yamaha. I use the component video cable for the Wii. This Wii cable has two rca connectors for audio.

There are two composite inputs on the Yamaha. One has a coaxial audio and the other has digital optical audio. There is no connection for composite video plus two rca female audio inputs. I ended up connecting the Wii output video straight to the tv, without the benefit of the 1080p upscaling of the Yamaha, and the audio only to the receiver. Because of this I can only give the receiver 4 stars.

The sound from the system is very clear. I am still playing with all of its sound options and will update the review after I have more experience with the sound options.

UPDATE I found this inexpensive work around for the Wii audio hookup on Amazon: RCA DT2AD 2-Way Signal Converter DT2AD. It allows conversion of the analog audio to digital audio.

Sorry, Jaffe. I just don't agree with your assessment and can't help but think that there must be other issues associated with your setup. I did not find this to be a mediocre device at all.

I was in the market for a current HDMI compatible A/V receiver. Like another reviewer before me, I too had an older Sony that ran hot and was built before the transition to true high definition audio and video.

I am not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination and am generally happy and satisfied with very good, high quality stereo systems. I have the DirecTV HD Package, a Sony 46 inch 60Hz LCD 1080p television and a set of JBL Northridge 5.1 surround-sound speakers that my son got me a few years ago for father's day - bless you, Nick. It's not a state of the art system, but it both looks and sounds great. I just needed a new receiver.

I looked at several "best sellers" here at Amazon.com and read through the specifications and reviews carefully. I had always liked the way Yamaha's Natural Sound amplifiers sounded and decided that now was the time to finally select one for my home system. So far, I am not at all disappointed with my selection.

I was particularly impressed with the simple, sleek design and the ease of setup. If you too select this system, don't pass on their microphone assisted sound field setup, which even alerted me to an inadvertent out of phase wiring error I had made. I found that it's self-setup; based upon the layout and acoustic profile of my living room, produced an exceptional balance of high-, mid-, and low-frequencies with ample volume from the rears.

All in all, I am thrilled with this addition to my home theater and as I mentioned, I thought it was a very good value for the affordable price.

Totally excited to find a Yamaha with 4 HDMI inputs on it, but I am now returning it.

I have a Tivo Series 3 HD that I am trying to use, and this receiver has a bug when changing TV channels on the tivo. The Dolby Digital signal drops from the tivo, and the receiver tries to re-autodetect it every time you change channel. The end result is a digital "Chirp" that plays over the speakers and is REALLY annoying.
I have tried swapping the unit out for a new one, changing wires, changing wall plugs to eliminate ground issues, tried with my other Tivo that i own, etc. Its is a known issue on tivo community forums (search for digital cough) that plagued a lot of older models of Yamahas. Aparently this new model has the same issue.
i called Yamaha, and they claim to have never heard of the issue. They suggested the unit was faulty and I exchange it. Replacement model did the same thing.

I am now looking for a new brand and a new receiver. Very sad indeed. :(

Verified Purchase
I recently had a Yamaha receiver, but was an old one with no HDMI hook ups nor did it have True HD and DTS HD. After purchasing this receiver without spending a fortune for a new one, this choice could not have been better. i actually expected less, but this receiver is awesome. I am a movie guy and watch movies regularly and the sound is just terrific. I would recommend this product to everyone.

I am very pleased with this product so far. The sound quality is great and there are a lot of features. The YPAO works very well testing even the correct connection of your speakers. You can equalize each channel independently if you want. To some people who had problems with the assignability of audio inputs there is a firmware update in the web of Yamaha, so the problem is solved. I updated the firmware because I wanted to connect mi computer via HDMI (video) and Coaxial (audio) and it works fine. Also I installed a Liteon Bluray drive to mi PC so now I can enjoy full HD movies in my TV through this receiver. Saddly the audio output of my PC doesn't handle Dolby True HD or DTS HD. That until I buy a set top player, but in my country these are very expensive at this time.

The sound quality is great with movies and music. I have a little collection of music in DTS multichannel format that sounds really good.

The upscaling is not the best but it does a better job than a cheap dvd player with hdmi output, even better than my LCD Samsung 40" Series 5 FullHD so I use this function to watch legacy dvd.

I must say that this is not an audiophile or a high-end receiver, but for the price it's not intended to be that. In a matter of fact, Yamaha has reduced some costs with some cheap connectors for the speakers, but that not interfere in the sound. The GUI looks outdated too, but that not compromise the final quality of the sound neither. Despite those details I put 5 stars to this product because the features and the sound quality are equal or superior to other products in his price range, and fulfill my present expectations, and with 4 hdmi inputs and high resolution audio decoding it will in the future too.
