RX-V565 vs RC160

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Which one do you guys think is better? I'll be using this for my computer setup with 6 bookshelves. I'm kinda concerned with the limited audyssey calibration that the RC-160 Has as I was hoping to calibrate my subwoofer, are there other 7.1 receivers under the $350 ranges that are also good? I need a minimum of 4 HDMI inputs.

Thank you

Go for the RC160 out of these two. If you are concerned about the Audyssey program for your sub, then you could step up to the 707 if possible. The Yamaha's this year have nothing to offer until you get to the upper end(765,1065,2065).

Checkout the Denon 590/1610 if multi EQ is what you are looking for in that price range. That is if you can live with 5.1 although they do have the 2 surround modes effectively making them 7.1

Does Multi EQ make a big difference from YPAO/2EQ for computer setups?

Yes, because MultiEQ also calibrates the subwoofer. 2EQ does not. These Audyssey features calibrate the receiver to the speakers room, not your computer.

My guess is you do not have computer speakers connected to your Yamaha?

Don't know how YPAO works...

haha I know that, the only reason I said computer setup is because the distance between the speakers and me is so little I was wondering if the calibration was needed, I don't have a Yamaha yet but I think YPAO calibrates the subwoofer is this true?

Thank you

Does it do a good job though? there's a RX-V665 onsale for an excellent price how would it compare to the RC160?

Thank you

I have mainly been a Yamaha person under sub 1000. Although this year Onkyo is doing things.If i was looking in this range i would do a Onkyo TX-SR607.

I would do that but the fact that 2EQ wouldn't calibrate my subwoofer is annoying me.


Thank you

The cheapest AVR with MultEQ is the Denon 590/1610 but they are 5.1. To move into the MultEQ AVRs take a look at the Onkyo SR707 or Denon 790/1910. When you get up into that much money the Onkyo RC180 with it's internet radio and firmware updates capability gets interesting. Both Onkyo receivers have preamp outs for adding external amps - the Denons do not.
