4K Pass-Through for Next-Generation Super High Resolution Images
This AV receiver is ready for the future with advanced HDMI features including 4K pass-through. "4K" refers to four times the resolution of a 1080p display. While not yet available, 4K displays and sources are sure to become popular in the future. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K data from the source to the display, for image clarity far beyond present standards.
HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel
Thanks to 3D Pass-through, you can enjoy stereoscopic 3D content when used with 3D sources. The Audio Return Channel function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable, so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable, with no need for an extra optical cable.
YPAO Sound Optimization for Automatic Speaker Setup
YPAO analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system.
USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone
Play and charge your iPod/iPhone with the front panel USB port. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver’s remote control unit to operate the iPod/iPhone music playback functions.
SCENE for One-Touch Start
Enjoy a new level of operating ease with the SCENE. Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV Receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can re-set the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.
HD Audio with CINEMA DSP
Yamaha’s exclusive CINEMA DSP technology supports playback of HD Audio (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, etc.), providing natural and expansive sound imaging.
HDMI CEC for Easy Operation
Control multiple components with a single remote thanks to HDMI CEC function. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, it will turn on and off together with the TV, and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver’s remote unit to control player functions like Skip and Stop. (All connected devices must be HDMI CEC compatible. Some CEC compatible TVs/players may not work.)
Subwoofer Trim for Improved Sound Imaging
By avoiding overlap with the front speaker output, the Subwoofer Trim control results in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response and enhanced low frequencies. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is "pushed" toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.
Compressed Music Enhancer
Digitally compressed format like MP3, WMA suffers loss of sound detail and frequency response. Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.
ECO-Mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20%*
Yamaha’s new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu. *Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).
Selectable Auto Power Down
Save energy by turning off the power after user-defined two, four, eight, or 12 hours.
