Yamaha announced today a new A/V receiver with an impressive feature set and a price tag just shy of a grand. The RX-V1065 is a slightly more powerful version of the RX-V665 receiver. It retains all the features of its little brother, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio support, 1080p video upscaling, and 4 HDMI inputs. with a few small upgrades. It can play HD radio, a first for the X65 line of receivers, and can put out 105W over 7 channels, compared to the V665's 95W.
While it lacks the RS232 integration and 3-zone support of Yamaha's X900 receivers, it still offers plenty of flexibility for home theaters. It can handle 2 zones, and supports iPods, iPhones, and Bluetooth audio devices with Yamaha's optional YDS-11 dock and YBA-10 Bluetooth receiver. The Yamaha RX-V1065 retails for $999.95.
