I ordered an RX-V665 from Sixth Ave and it was just shipped yesterday so I should have it in a couple more days.
Unfortunately I have very limited space for a receiver in my TV stand. I made the mistake of buying a stand when I got the TV but before I started looking into the rest of the components. I'm limited to something that is less than 6.25" in height. There are very few AVR's that will fit in that space but from what I can tell the Yamaha 665 is probably the best.
I'm really hoping it will sound okay. My speakers are all Energy RC-Minis and I will never go beyond 5.1 so my guess is the power will be sufficient to drive them.
This is my first home theater set up so I don't really know what to expect in terms of sound. I'm an old music enthusiast who has had semi-high end audio components (separates) for many years, so I know good sound when I hear it.
The home theater will be probably be about 80% movies/TV and 20% music, so I'm hoping the sound will be good enough. If not, it will mean the hassle and expense of getting rid of my current TV stand and buying another one, which I really don't want to do.
