HTR-7065 is Sounding Great

Posted

Pros: Brought new life to my speakers, YPAO

Cons: No built in WiFi but hey!, use your BluRay for that streaming stuff already

Purchased the HTR-7065 from Costco a couple of weeks ago. I needed to replace a 12 year old functioning Pioneer VSX-D711 AVR with no HDMI so I could install an Optoma ML500 projector. The Pioneer was an entry level 5.1 with a list price of $365 and I probably paid $180.

Feature rich but unpolished

Pros: Dual HDMI output, Preouts, Dual sub woofer output,

Cons: DLNA, Networking speed, limited support

This unit works well enough for the price paid, but there are many issues with the networking and multimedia features. I've had to reset the unit to return proper operations. When playing audio files over network it does not remember last position when powered down. There is no seek or fast forward controls when playing audio. The web console is very limited. It doesn’t provide all the information about the song being played. Accessing folders over a network share is very slow. The programmable remote does not have codes to control all devices. I've opened a support ticket to try and get some of these short comings addressed without success. Wouldn't recommend to others
