Provides simple operation, yet includes essential capabilities for high definition home audio video enjoyment, offering popular features like USB input for iPhone and color on-screen display, as well as a 5.1 channel speaker system with a powerful 6 ½" 100W subwoofer. This system is also ready for the future with sophisticated technologies like 4k video pass-through and ECO mode for lower power consumption.
Powerful 5.1 Home Theater System Featuring 5-channel powerful surround sound (100W per Channel) with 192 kHz/24-bit Burr Brown DACs for all channels, the YHT-497BL delivers high dynamic power, low-impedance drive capability to bring you cinema-like audio experience just in the comfort of your home. The HD Audio format decoding for Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio refreshes your listening experience with tantalizing high-definition audio that is as stunning as the high-definition pictures. (DTS-HD featured products have the ability to decode all streams required for DTS-HD Master Audio but may have limitations in channel output and/or sampling frequency; or may utilize unique post processing.) Complete with a discreetly constructed 5.1-channel speaker system with a 6.5" 100W active subwoofer, everything you hear would come to life with unmatched clarity, depth and accuracy.
Future Ready The YHT-497BL provides advanced HDMI features including 4K Pass-Through for higher picture quality, 3D for enjoying 3D video sources, and ARC (Audio Return Channel), which makes it easier to hear TV sound. It also supports Deep Color (30/36 bit), x.v.Color, 24 Hz Refresh Rate and Auto Lip-Sync compensation to sync the dialogue and pictures.
CINEMA DSP Digital Conventional multichannel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent sound fields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects from ideally located in these separate sound fields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater! The decoding circuitry performs Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS Digital Surround, DTS-ES (DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 and DTS-ES Discrete 6.1), DTS Neo:6 and DTS 96/24 decoding with extreme accuracy, as well as all digital sound field processing.
SCENE – A NEW LEVEL OF OPERATING EASE Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for DVD Viewing, Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button automatically launches a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, XM Listening, TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browsing and selecting the settings is quickly accomplished by changing Input via the front panel and watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for one-time use, or they can replace the original default settings. The SCENE names can be changed also.
YPAO Automatic System Calibration Yamaha’s YPAO system uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters, such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers and even the sound pressure level, etc. Until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room and you don't have to do anything!
Advanced YST Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST) is a unique system in which the speaker and amplifier work together to cancel out impedance so the speaker unit has a perfectly linear motion. Advanced YST helps to ensure the highest levels of sound pressure and overall performance.

WarrantyBeyond any applicable Newegg return policy, this item is warranted independently by the product's Manufacturer or a Third party. Below is a summary provided for convenience only and may not be accurate or current.
Read full details.
Pros: Excellent sound quality, fairly easy to set up. Lots of inputs
Cons: The speakers make a crackling sound if the sound is too high while nothing is playing. Not a huge deal since I usually have the system off or turned down if nothing is playing.
Other Thoughts: This system took my favorite games (Mass Effect, Skyrim, Dues Ex etc) and made them into almost entirely new games. After having this system for a couple months, I still get a tingling in my ears that I can only describe as pure joy when I fire up a game, movie, or just some music.

Tech Level: 5/5
Rating: 5/5Nice Complete System
Pros: 4K support for new coming technology. Complete setup in a box. Sounds great and happy with the kit.
Cons: Don't use the supplied wimpy speaker cables, get some 16 Gauge copper. You loose too much through the thin stuff they give you.
Other Thoughts: If you need a budget setup, and don't need big tower speakers, and want full sound, get this.
