The Yamaha RX-V2065 is sounding a lot more tempting now. I set up a RX-V3900 for my buddy and loved toying around with it even though it was for a short time. That was my first experience with a Yamaha receiver and their YPAO was just as satisfying with results as good as Audyssey. Plus Yamaha offers the Music Commander which is just the type of device my setup needs to be more "wife/girlfriend friendly". Plus the RX-V2065 plays 24/96 FLAC over the network!
I had a Yamaha V2065 for a few days, but returned it and purchased a Denon 4310CI (the 3310CI's big brother).
Audio wise this unit was superb. Really nice movie and stereo music playback.
The YPAO set my room up pretty well, but I must say that Audyssey did an even better one.
I returned it because it has no video processing.
It has a scaler chip for up-conversion, but it only works for analog signals (no HDMI connection up-conversion).
The 4310CI allows upscaling from HDMI signals and has an Anchor Bay video processing chip.
If I were to use the V2065 for only audio I probably would have kept it, but I needed the video capabilities that it lacked.
Having all my sources connecting to my display via one connection means that the TV settings are now tied to all sources.
The 4310CI allows me to adjust picture elements (contrast, brightness, hue, DNR, etc.)
I hope this info helps you in your decision.
