Product Details

Yamaha 5.1 Channel Black Home Theater System, Model YHT495BL

A high performance surround sound HTiB system featuring a 100W 5-channel A/V Receiver, 1080p-compatible HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel (4 in/1 out), HD Audio decoding, iPod/iPhone and Bluetooth® compatibility, 4 SCENE buttons, a 5 channel speaker package and a powerful 8” 100W Subwoofer

Key Features:

  • HDMI with 3D and ARC
    1080p HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel (4 In/ 1 Out) deliver crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video via a single cable, HDMI dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest-quality home theater experience. HDMI can provide an interface between most audio/video sources, such as a set-top box, Blu-ray player, DVD player, or A/V receiver and a video monitor, such as a High Definition Television (HDTV), over a single cable.

    Audio Return Channel (ARC) is a distinctive 3D-ready function allows consumers to use a single HDMI connection to transfer digital audio from the TV back to the AV Receiver eliminating the need for a second cable between the TV and the home theater AV Receiver.

  • Surround Realism
    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.

    Yamaha CINEMA DSP creates 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!

  • SCENE for One-Touch Start
    The Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for BD/DVD Viewing, CD Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button will automatically launch a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, SiriusXM Listening [model dependent], 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.

  • Compressed Music Enhancer
    When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. This function restores what was lost, so your music always sounds the way it should.

  • Background Video Feature
    Using this feature you can eliminate the audio from unwanted TV programs by playing your favorite music in the background instead. [background music sources vary by model].

  • Eco-Friendly Design
    This model has a low standby power consumption (0.5W) and an Auto Power Down feature (selectable to 4, 8 or 12 hours) which help make this an environmentally friendly receiver

    Comments about Yamaha 5.1 Channel Black Home Theater System:

    I purchased this system on the recommendation of a [@] Sales Associate. I had installed a HTIB system which I was not satisfied with, and, I wanted to improve the sound from my Home Theater system. I had 'permanently' installed speakers from the HTIB, however, at 4ohm, I was concerned for the performance. The SA assured me Yamaha A/V receivers were "2ohm stable". I am very pleased with the results. The speakers work fine. I need to tweak some settings, yet, on the receiver, however, it has been a tremendous improvement over the HTIB system. I've recommended this system to a friend, and, he purchased the identical system the following day.

      I bought this system to replace a 30 yr old Marantz system. My wife was tired at looking at the large speakers from the old system. I was amazed at the amount and quality of sound from such small speakers. Great bass. Easy to use. System very versatile. Highly recommended.

          Bought this over a Denon. Was rated good and the Denon was rated good too, but the sub woofer was rated bad on the Denon. I want bass. And the Yama has it!! Got a new 47" LG 3D tv and wanted something that would make me feel like I am in a theater. This thing rocks!!!! I also could not get the Wii to play, so I called your tec support at 5PM on a Sunday and got a white male that spoke English!!!! I forgot to connect one cable. Works great with my PS3. Keep up the good work!!

            I set this unit up in a small home theater room 14x17 and it sounds great. This system is very cost efficient. I pre wired the room for speakers and got a very clean installation. A breeze to set up using the HDMI connections from bluray, satellite receiver to unit then HDMI to tv. Seamless connections and easy to operate. None of my components are from the same manufacturer and i use a universal remote to controll everything. My wife could not be happier.

                    Was comparing this and an LG boxed BLu Ray. Couldn't believe I even compared this to something else. Previously I had the boxed home theater system (DVD and suround sound) sets. Having a receiver is so much better. Hooked one HDMI to my computer to play some music and the sound was awesome. Hooked up the Tv and the Mrs. was actually startled and thought there was someone behind her messing with the door. Amazing system and well worth the money! GET IT!

                      Bought this system for our "stove room" where we spend most of our winter nights. The room is about 20' x 16' feet and this setup sounds good and installation was a snap. We use it with a Vizo 46" 3d tv and the setup was easy. The only scratch my head moment came with understanding the use of HDMI with ARC between and TV and Receiver. Great technology, simplifies connections and minimizes cables. Surround sound and 3D work perfectly. Thanks, Yamaha.
