    All Your Content

    Everything you can imagine. MusicCast allows you to access your digital music library, streaming music services and Internet radio, as well as Bluetooth® sources, your TV sound and external sources attached to your AV receiver, such as a Blu–ray Disc™ or CD player.

    Bluetooth

The Compressed Music Enhancer, a digital sound processing technology from Yamaha, is now optimized for Bluetooth audio transmissions to ensure that your music will have vivid, lively sound quality during wireless playback.

    4K, HDR and BT.2020

    Darker blacks, whiter whites and more vivid colors. This unit supports the latest HDMI® standards thanks to the transmission of 4K video at 60 frames per second (pass–through only). Fully enjoy the high definition video quality of 4K without degradation along with HDCP 2.2 that fully complies with the latest copyright protection, a standard for 4K video transmission. It also supports the wider color gamut of BT.2020 pass–through.

    HDMI with 3D and Audio Support

    See and hear 3D. This AV receiver supports 3D video. Additionally, the Audio Return Channel function enables audio to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable, so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable.

    HDMI CEC

    More controllability. 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 AV receiver remote to control player functions like skip and stop.

    *All connected devices must be HDMI CEC compatible. Some CEC compatible TVs/players may not work.

    Network Functions

    Access more. This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation. You can connect the AV receiver to your home network or internet to enjoy Internet radio, Spotify, Pandora® or music stored on a NAS and home PC. The AV Controller App (from iTunes® or Google Play) lets you control various functions from your iPod®, iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ phones/tablets.

    Wi–Fi Compatible

    Stream simply. Built–in Wi–Fi allows for a connection with your wireless router, greatly simplifying system connections for enjoying networked audio (PC/NAS) and music streaming services. If a Wi–Fi router is not available, the unique Wireless Direct feature not only allows you to stream music directly from your smartphone or tablet via the AV Controller App, AirPlay® etc., but also allows for control of the AV receiver as well.

    AirPlay

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

    Spotify Connect

    Millions of songs. With the Spotify app on your smartphone, you have instant access to millions of songs. Now you can stream those songs to your networked Yamaha AV receiver by using Spotify Connect. Just hit play to start streaming music. When you listen to Spotify outside on your smartphone or tablet and come inside, the song immediately streams to your Yamaha AV receiver allowing no interruption to your music playback. You can also personalize playlists and receive phone calls while listening to music on Spotify.

    The Spotify app and premium account are required. Visit www.spotify.com for more details. http://spotify.com/yamaha

    AV Controller App

    Easy and convenient operation. This AV receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller App that is downloadable from iTunes, Google Play or the Amazon Appstore to control the power, volume, input selections, DSP modes and much, much more from an iPhone or Android device.

    DSP Adjustment

    Create sound fields at home. This AV receiver is equipped with a variety of sound programs that utilize original DSP technologies from Yamaha.

    Codec compatible. This AV receiver is compatible with many audio formats such as Dolby® True HD and DTS–HD Master Audio™. It is also compatible with high–resolution audio codecs such as DSD/AIFF/FLAC/WAV/Apple® Lossless. You will enjoy the excellent sound quality of these various high–resolution audio codecs from the USB input on the front panel or from network connected devices.

    Compressed Music Enhancer

    Hear more. When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.

    Gapless Playback

    No interruptions. 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.

    Sound Optimization

    Every room is different. YPAO™ (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer) analyzes the room acoustics and tunes various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system.

    Rich Bass Reproduction

    Feel your lows. This exclusive low–range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you would expect from smaller sized speakers 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.

    Total Purity

    Enjoy fine 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 fully discrete power amplifiers that help minimize distortion. They also adopt pure independent power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti–vibration heat sinks 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.

    Discrete Amp Configuration

    Enjoy quality sound. 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.

    SCENE for One–Touch Start

    Ready, set, go. 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

    Virtual Presence Speaker

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

    Virtual Surround Sound

    Surround from the front. Even when it is impossible to install surround speakers behind the listening position, you will enjoy virtual 5–channel surround sound with all of the speakers placed in the front of the room. This is ideal for those who can't or prefer not to install speakers in the rear of the room.
