Awaiting New Receiver

Well, Thanks to my friend and fellow home theater enthusiast Andy for informing me of the Saturday sales that Newegg seems to be having lately. I missed out the first time Andy told me about the Yamaha receivers on sale at Newegg, but this time I scored a new 2009 model Yamaha RXV-765 for $399, what a great bargain for a receiver with a suggested retail of $649 and a street price of $599. Some may notice that this is the same receiver I was amazed to hear sounded so good at only 25 lbs of weight. I opted for the RXV-765 rather than the RXV-1065 for $200 more because I am not so concerned with the power of the 765 being 95 watts/channel and the 1065 being 105 watts/channel because I am going to go with the separate Emotiva three channel amp when I can afford it. It was primarily the features of the 765 and 1065 that got me to consider the Yamaha, and at $399 I don't think I could have made a better choice.

The differences in the 765 and the 1065 are 10 watts of power per channel and HD radio tuner, which I kind of wanted, but not for an extra $200. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new receiver, and can't wait to watch some of the new movies that have come out, as I have been without a receiver for what seems like an eternity. I will be posting a full review and comparison to my old HK once I have some time to break in the new receiver and have a thorough listen. Stay Tuned.

  1. Its a good product and also its power consumption also less. In Different way Speakers, surround speakers and woofers has power consumption ratio is more then the receiver.
