Yamaha just introduced its RX-V1065 7.2-channel AV receiver (105 W x 7; MSRP: $999.95) with better HD audio and video performance and enhanced user experience features for enjoying music, video from virtually any home or portable source component. Highlights of this receiver include a newly-developed, easy-to-use on-screen GUI, four HDMI inputs, 1080p video upscaling and a full complement of HD Audio codecs, as well as support for HD Radio, XM and Sirius Satellite Radio, iPods and Bluetooth devices.
Yamaha's RX-V1065 receiver enables music and movie enthusiasts to more fully enjoy their HDTVs, Blu-ray players, broadcast HD services and gaming consoles. Completing the true HD experience with resolute HD audio, the model offers a full complement of HD surround sound audio decoders (Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio; Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio). On the video side, four 1080p compatible HDMI inputs and upscaling of analog video to 1080p full HD resolution delivers stunning, lifelike picture quality, even from non-HD video source.
Four pre-set SCENE buttons ("BD/DVD," "TV," "CD" and "Radio") instantly ready the entire system to deliver the desired entertainment experience by turning on the correct components and activating the proper inputs, audio and video features and surround mode combinations. The model's new GUI on-screen display with eye-catching graphics, including component icons and album art, offers users a seamless means to access the content they want to experience.
Users can access the broadest range of today's popular content sources, including iPods via Yamaha's optional YDS-11 Universal Dock, and Bluetooth (A2DP) devices with an optional Yamaha Bluetooth Wireless Audio Receiver (YBA-10). The RX-V1065 is also Sirius/XM satellite radio ready, with XM HD Surround powered by Neural Surround. A front panel USB port allows playback of audio files from hard drives and MP3 music players as well.
The RX-V1065 features Yamaha's proprietary Pure Direct technology, a
special listening mode that provides audiophile grade signal purity. It
can be used for both analog and digital sources, with two-channel or
multi-channel inputs. Rounding out the model's advanced audio and video
feature set are Yamaha's Digital ToP-ART and High Current Amplification
technology with discrete amp configuration, Deep Color (30/36 bit)
technology, 120Hz/24Hz Refresh Rates and Auto Lip-Sync compensation,
which automatically eliminates audio/video sync issues.
The RX-V1065 includes Yamaha's proprietary Cinema DSP 3D audio
processing, with 17 DSP programs and adaptive DSP level, which gives
music and movies an extra sonic dimension with standout presence.
Silent Cinema technology makes it possible to hear large-scale surround

theater listening when the rest of the family is asleep.
