  • Digital ToP-ART
    Digital ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) is the name Yamaha has given to a design philosophy whose goal is to maximize digital quality while minimizing analog circuitry. The culmination of Yamaha’s long experience in digital engineering and design, it brings together several key elements to create the best-sounding, A/V components available on the market
  • 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

Virtual CINEMA DSP lets you enjoy the effects of CINEMA DSP surround sound without using surround speakers (handy for use in custom installations where some rooms don't have surround speakers). It can be used with the front / center / presence speakers or even with just the two front left and right speakers
  • Compressed Music Enhancer

With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible
  • 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! RX-V2500 and newer models have an improved system that is faster (less than three minutes), also adjusts frequency response, and provides three programed EQ patterns, plus the ability to manually adjust parametric EQ settings. Six YPAO settings can be held in memory and recalled via two system memory buttons on the remote control

Comments about Yamaha 7.1 Channel Network Home Theater Black Receiver:

This is an overall great audio unit. The sheer versatility and the high quality output cannot be overstated. Playing everything from Bach to the heavy base of House it preforms well. I truly began to appreciate it's quality when I purchased a pair of amazing set of sterio speakers utilizing ESL technology.

An audio system is only as good as it's weakest link. For the price, this unit is a real performer.

Comments about Yamaha 7.1 Channel Network Home Theater Black Receiver:

Excellent product. Excellent sound quality. I replaced a 12 yr old Yamaha V995 with this receiver. Even after only one week the sound difference is incredible. I cannot wait for the 30 day breakin period to complete. Many advanced features for someone who is not an audiophile. May want to go with a lesser model, but if tech savvy this is a great receiver. Again, for those not tech savvy this receiver may be a bit much for you. Many features that require knowledge to understand and operate, otherwise great choice!

Service and delivery comments:

Very fast delivery!!!!!
