4K Ultra HD Pass-Through for Super High Resolution Images


This AV receiver provides advanced HDMI® features including pass-through of 4K Ultra HD, which is gaining popularity. 4K Ultra HD refers to four times the resolution of a 1080p display. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K Ultra HD data from the source to the monitor, for image clarity far beyond present standards.


HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel


3D means the receiver can handle 3D signal data. 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.

HDMI CEC for Easy Operation


Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. 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.


Discrete Amp Configuration for High Sound Quality


This AV receiver was designed with a strong focus on achieving exceptionally high sound clarity. It employs a discrete amp configuration and a low jitter PLL circuit, which contribute to its excellent audio performance.

Network Functions


This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation. You can connect the receiver to a PC to enjoy Internet radio, Pandora®, Spotify and operate your system via WebBrowser Control. The AV Controller App (from iTunes® or Google play) lets you control various functions from your iPod®, iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ phones / tablets.


AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to A/V Receiver


This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means they can accept wireless music streaming from iPod touch® , iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on Mac® or PC. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can view metadata such as song title, artist name, as well as album art* via the AV receiver's on-screen display.

*Some models don't support album art display.

Stream Millions of Songs with Spotify Connect


With the Spotify app on your smartphone, you've got instant access to millions of songs. And now you can stream those songs to your Yamaha system by using Spotify Connect. Just hit play to start streaming music. What's more, when you've been listening on your smartphone outside and come inside, the song immediately streams to your AVR—like magic, you enjoy uninterrupted music. You can also personalize playlists and receive phone calls while listening to music.

The Spotify app and premium account are required. Visit for more details.

Try Spotify Premium for free on your Yamaha home entertainment system for 30 days.

HTC Connect™ for Wireless Streaming


HTC Connect lets you stream music to your AV receiver wirelessly. You don't need a separate app because HTC Connect is built right into your HTC phone. Simply swiping the HTC phone screen starts music output to the AV receiver from the HTC device's local music sources or third party music sources.

AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation


This AV receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller App that is downloadable from iTunes® or Google Play to control power on / off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone or Android device. You can also use in as many as 23* different languages and customize the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available.

USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front Panel


A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod / iPhone, which also charges when connected. 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.

Virtual CINEMA FRONT Provides Virtual 5-channel Surround Sound with High Quality and Resolution


With Virtual CINEMA FRONT, you will enjoy virtual 5-channel surround sound with higher quality and resolution by installing surround speakers at the front. You get more flexibility to arrange your speakers inside the room, along with easy enjoyment of high quality surround sound.


Extra Bass Provides Rich Bass Reproduction, Even with Small Speakers


Yamaha's exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you would expect from the speaker size while maintaining good localization and sound balance even with compact front speakers. When a subwoofer is used, it improves the volume of the entire low range of the speaker system, not only the front speakers, but also enhancing the bass from the subwoofer. You'll enjoy video and music with sound that has exceptional power and presence.


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.

HD Audio with CINEMA DSP 3D and Virtual Presence Speakers


CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speakers deliver three-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers.


DSP Parameter Adjustment for Easy and Detailed Setting


This AV receiver is equipped with a variety of sound programs that utilize Yamaha's original DSP technology. They allow you to easily create sound fields like actual movie theaters or concert halls in your room to enjoy natural stereoscopic sound fields. Now you can use the AV Controller App to adjust DSP parameters to your preference to match the type of music / movie or the mood you want to achieve. There are two modes, basic and advanced, that you can choose according to the type of adjustments you want to do.


Gapless Playback Compatibility Allows Play Without Interruption*


Many live and classical albums have no gaps in the music. Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files. This provides playback with no interruptions, the way it was meant to be heard.

*Compatible with WAV, FLAC and ALAC file formats and input from USB / PC / NAS.


Compressed Music Enhancer


When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. 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.


Total Purity Concept for the Finest Sound Quality


The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity preamplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. All models have a fully discrete power amplifier that helps to minimize distortion. They also adopt independent pure power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heatsinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure. Independent power supplies for the DACs are designed to further eliminate noise on certain models. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.

Subwoofer Trim Control for Improved Sound Imaging


The Subwoofer Trim Control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is "pushed" toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim Control takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.


SCENE for One-Touch Start


Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can reset the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.

ECO Mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20 Percent*


Yamaha's new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20 percent. 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


Auto power down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after two, four, eight or 12 hours.

1 out of 5 eggsLove Yamaha, but not this one.

Pros: Has many HDMI inputs

Cons: HDMI's on unit I received did not work correctly

2 out of 5 eggsNeeds Lot More Work

Pros: Dynamic range control + Adaptive range control
Support for HDMI ARC, HDMI CEC

Cons: The sound scale goes from 0-97 with 0.5 steps, for a total of 194 volume steps. There is no way to adjust this. So for minor volume changes, you have to press the volume button 10-20 times. Unacceptable.

HDMI CEC allows my TV to change the AV input to AV4. I cannot assign the TV input to HDMI, only AV inputs. So every time I turn on the TV, I have to pick up my Yamaha remote and chose HDMI 1. This is a known issue with Yamaha receivers, see various Yamaha reviews and forum postings. Again unacceptable.

YPAO gives me a phase error warning but wont tell me which speaker is out of phase. I have to manually go through each speaker connection. Why?

1 out of 5 eggsFrustrated!

Pros: Easy return procedures. Makes an otherwise painful process a little easier to handle. Nothing bad to say about

Cons: The entire reason I replaced my current A/V receiver was due to HDML connections dying. This one arrived DOA. It could handle standard definition cable signals but nothing else. No HD, DVD, Blue Ray, or games on the PS3. If you a fan of Yamaha, steer clear of this outdated model.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Receiver

Pros: -Great sound quality
-Airplay works great and is convenient
-Easy setup

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I actually bought this from a different store but, i have to say it's definitely worth the extra cash if you have it. I have it hooked up to a powered sub of mine too. Really makes the place shake.

Pros: Worked nicely while it lasted.

2 out of 5 eggsProblems with HDMI

Pros: No complain about the sound reproduction in this unit. It integrated perfectly with my Bose speakers. The sound is superb. I would give it a 5 eggs if there is no HDMI problem.

Cons: The problem I have is while playing DVD and Blue-ray through the Yamaha receiver, the movie picture is blinking. The duration varies from a brief blink to a black out screen up to 3 seconds. I hooked up the DVD and Blue-ray player directly to the TV and there is no problem.

Other Thoughts: I didn't test this function out when I first got the unit. When I found out, it was too late to return the unit. I called the Yamaha support center, waited for half an hour and the representative was rude and not helpful at all. I have to take this receiver to a local service center for repair.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Great tools and sound producer; sound option is great. 5.1 programs is working well. Sound detective/setup sensor to fit your room and size is a great easy tool for setting up speakers.

Cons: sensitive. If you mess up your speaker cable a bit, it turns off immediately. Everything need to be organize but that's not difficult at all to do.

5 out of 5 eggsMet my needs perfectly

Pros: Price, functionality, number of HDMI inputs

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Really fantastic receiver, especially for the price. Number of HDMI inputs made pairing with Blu-Ray player, satellite box, television, and gaming console seamless. System puts out enough volume for my small apartment.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes everything I wanted

Pros: Does everything I was hoping it would do.
Set-up - 2 Klipsch Synergy F-30 floor standing speakers
Klipsch SW-450 Subwoofer
Klipsch Synergy C-20 Center channel
Klipsch Synergy S-10 WDST Surround Speakers

All I can say is WOW the sound is crisp and clear with everything I throw at it. Resident Evil Revelations 2 sounds amazing, even my online games and movies. If your on a budget for a nice surround sounds system look no further.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsSolid 5.1 AV Receiver

Pros: Good audio reproduction with clean clear sound.
Air play works flawless.
Excellent IOS app for fine tuning system.

Cons: Mediocre TV UI.
