Yamaha HTR 7065 or RX V673

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was thinking of the V673 as it's been getting good reviews.

Then I saw the 7065 in Costco.

Anyone know how they compare?


(I've also heard that some Denon's do sub HQ but I don't know how important that is.

The HTR-7065 is almost certainly exactly the same as the RX-V773, so the differences would be 5W more power in the HTR-7065 and a handful more features.

Why Yamaha... NOT a big fan. Room calibration blows... FX = bad. Remotes = terrible. OSD = terrible.

What is Costco asking for the 7065? The RX-V773WA, which is exactly the same except that it includes the wireless adapter, has the same $850 MSRP. My guess is that Costco is discounting the 7065 though right?

At any rate, the extra features of the 7065 over the 673 are two HDMI outputs, more sophisticated room correction, and full preamp outputs.

Sounds like a good deal to me. The thing has a ton of features, lots of power and I haven't heard many complaints about Yamaha reliability for the 2012 models.

The HTR-7065/RX-V773 is a better deal at $480 than the 673 if the price is close.

I would get the 7065 for the better version of YPAO, preamp outputs, and dual HDMI outputs.

Hi All,

I just bought a new Yamaha HTR-7065. I have an apple TV, PS3, a PC and a Cisco Cable Set Top box in my setup. All else works great except the cable.

I read the manual and set my AV2 option such that audio for it comes from AV6 (component audio). In other words, the R,G,B of the component cable from set top box goes into AV2 and Red and White of component cable from set top box goes into AV6. I matched the On Screen settings for AV2 to reflect the same.

The above isnt giving any audio or video although i am certain the cable set top box is switched on.

Any help that any one can provide on this will be highly appreciated

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. All this is to say take my review with a grain of salt, however, I really am enjoying the sound of this new Yamaha compared to my Pioneer and feel like I should be impressed with it since it is a step up in price point. The HTR-7065 brought new life to my speakers and sounds much clearer and open especially at louder volumes. Also, dialogue in movies is much clearer and balanced. I have not explored all functions on this yet but have used the room correction and was happy with the results (although I did increase my sub woofer volume slightly from what it came up with). What is awesome is that you can go back and retrieve the original test and switch back and forth between your user settings and the auto room corrections without having to re-perform the test. The only connections I have tried so far have been the HDMI which all of my components are running straight through. Hope this helps.
