  • 4 HDMI 3D passthrough
  • Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
ICON Loading...

Provides simple operation with network control via free Yamaha AV Controller App, plus enhanced audio capabilities with CINEMA DSP 3D for an enveloping home theater experience from a 5-channel speaker package and a powerful, 8" 100W Subwoofer. With expanded Apple connectivity, including AirPlay and versatile USB input for iPad compatibility, this system is also ready for the future with sophisticated technologies like 4K video pass-through and 20% less power consumption with ECO mode.

  • newegg High Sound Quality The YAMAHA YHT-597BL boasts 5-channel powerful surround sound (115W per Channel) and one 8” 100W active subwoofer for true to life sound. With the Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio decoder, enjoy lossless, ultra-realistic HD surrounding sound like it was meant to be.
  • newegg 1080p HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel The YAMAHA YHT-597BL supports 4K pass-through for next generation super high resolution images and deep Color (30/36 bit), x.v.Color, 24 Hz Refresh Rate and Auto Lip-Sync compensation for vivid images. The HDMI interfaces (4 in/1 out) support both 3D video and an Audio Return Channel. 3D video brings exciting possibilities to home entertainment, with movie, game, and broadcast content on the increase and 3D-compatible TVs now on the market. Meanwhile, the Audio Return Channel allows audio content received directly by your HDTV’s tuner to be sent “upstream” via HDMI to your A/V receiver, without the need for a separate S/PDIF audio cable.
  • newegg One-touch start and more The YAMAHA YHT-597BL has SCENE buttons with direct power on (BD/DVD, TV, Net and Radio) for one-touch start operation. The front panel USB Digital Connection allows you to connect to iPod, iPhone and iPad eliminating the need to purchase a separate dock. And Airplay allows music streaming from Mac, PC, iPod, iPhone and iPod. With AV controller app, you can perform various functions from an iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android phones.
  • newegg Surround Realism CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources, and Virtual Presence Speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers. Plus, the actually measured sound field data contains the information of the height of the sound images. CINEMA DSP 3D mode achieves the reproduction of the accurate height of the sound images so that it creates the accurate and intensive stereoscopic sound fields in a listening room. And when music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. The compressed music enhancer function restores what was lost, so your music always sounds the way it should.
  • newegg Eco-Friendly design The ECO mode operation contributes to up to 20%* less power consumption. Other Eco-friendly features include only 0.1w power consumption in Standby mode and auto power down function with variable time setting. (*Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off)

5 out of 5 eggsI recommend this system

Pros: In my "opinion", the sound qualify is very good and it is easy to operate. I won't hesitate to recommend this product to others.

Cons: The onscreen control display looks outdated. It's functional but the fonts and graphics just looks bad on today's HDTV.

Other Thoughts: There are many factors that influence the sound quality and since I'm not an audiophile, I relied on Consumer Reports rating to help me pick this product. While this one is not the exact model that was rated in CR, I figured they are close enough. I would recommend this to anyone. Yamaha also pushes out firmware updates (e.g., AirPlay) which reflects their ongoing post-sales support for this product. That's reassuring!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value on Sale

Pros: Great sale price, includes everything needed to install. Good sound quality, acceptable speakers, sufficient inputs for most uses.

Cons: More inputs would be nice for game systems, etc. Included speakers are acceptable but not great. Wire connections on speaker are very loose, easily pull free. Bass level seems overbalanced.

Other Thoughts: A decent all in one home theater setup when on sale, but probably not worth full price. The receiver is very good, the sub is good, but it overpowers the middling satellite speakers.
