And so we come to the last link in the chain of Yamaha receivers that we’ve been talking about right here over the last few weeks now, the Yamaha RX V465.
The Yamaha RX V465 is a five channel surround sound receiver with a Bluetooth audio receiver, iPod dock, compatibility with XM and Sirius Satellite Radio, four HDMI ports, and seventeen separate DSP programs with Adaptive DSP Level technology.
Interestingly, the Yamaha RX V465 is very similar to the 565, which isn’t a surprise being that it’s basically one step below, as far as we can tell from model numbers. Indeed, there are some small differences in available features, but there are still plenty of great features here. And, of course, there’s also a bit of a price savings for the budget conscious shopper; the Yamaha RX V465 retails for three hundred and eighty dollars, and you can get some serious savings by shopping online or going used, as is generally the case.
So if you’re looking for something a bit bare bones but that represents a good value, then the Yamaha RX V465 might be what you want to see most.
