Product Details

Yamaha 5.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver, Model RXV373BL

Features:

  • Audio
    • 5-channel powerful surround sound (100W per Channel)
    • HD Audio format decoding: Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio; Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
    • 192 kHz/24-bit Burr Brown DACs for all channels
    • High dynamic power, low-impedance drive capability
  • 4K pass-through for next generation super high resolution images
    This AV receiver provides 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
    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
  • 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
    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
  • SCENE for One-Touch Start
    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
    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
  • Subwoofer Trim 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 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
    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
  • Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
    Adaptive DRC automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume level. This ensures that you hear clear dialogue and vocals, and all sound effects at comfortable levels. There is no need to adjust the volume level as you listen; everything from whispers to big explosions will be heard clearly and comfortably at the same volume setting. It also tones down loud TV commercials, and is ideal for low-volume, late-night listening, when you do not want to disturb others
  • 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
    Auto Power Down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours
  • Low Standby Power Consumption
    Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.3W.
  • Other Notable Video Features
    • Supports Deep Color (30/36 bit), x.v.Color, 24 Hz Refresh Rate and Auto Lip-Sync compensation
  • Other Notable Advanced Features
    • iPod/iPhone song titles displayed in English and Western European languages on the front panel
    • Multi language color OSD for improved visibility
    • Front panel mini jack input for connecting portable audio player
    • Audio input assign capability for HDMI and component video input
    • 9 selectable subwoofer crossover frequencies
    • Subwoofer phase select / Subwoofer out
    • Initial Volume Setting and Maximum Volume Setting
    • Audio Delay for adjusting Lip-Sync (0-250 ms)
    • 40-station preset tuning / Auto preset tuning

I used this to replace a 10 yr. old Onkyo which had good sound but no HDMI inputs. It is paired with a JBL center channel, satellites and two vintage Altec-Lansing front speakers and an Infinity sub-woofer.

Hooking up the Yamaha was very easy, especially with the HDMI cables between the bluray and the HD cable box.

After it was set up, I used the remote mic to auto calibrate the speakers and then just tweaked the setting slightly to adjust for my taste.

The sound is clear and clean and the dialog in a movie that was getting lost before, is much better and easier to discern from the background audio.

Overall, I am very happy with the purchase for the money. But I only have it for 2 weeks, so I haven't used it too much yet and look forward to testing it with other movies. And I did have one instance where I had no sound and had to shut it off and restart it before it kicked in. Probably nothing and it only happened once.

I only gave it 4 stars because I have heard better, but it's 5 stars versus other receivers in the same price range.

Poor bass audio response

Followed instructions to increase bass response and was not able to make significant imporvement. Tried contacting tech support and no reply.

Would not recommend this brand or this model.

      Got this system to replace an 12 year old system and to be the video input switch before going to the tv. The sound is great for my room and it's 4 HDMI inputs are perfect for my devices. I was a little let down that I needed a composite and component video output for some of my older video game systems as I was hoping I would only need 1 HDMI cable going to my television, but that's not to big of a deal as I had extras in the house.

      Very good starting point into quality theater options. got this as a package with a set of yamaha speakers. was originally looking at HTIB that plays blue ray but after hearing the yamaha there was no comparison especially since my gaming system plays blue ray anyway. and the option to customize with different speakers that other HTIB do not have. if you are looking for a budget option for home theater this is definitely a great choice. only downfall i could find is that the volume numbers start/count backwards which is not a big deal at all. and does not have bluetooth connect ability but can be easily added or just use the aux input.

      Comments about Yamaha 5.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

      The only reason I did not give this a five star is that the speakers tilt up and thus I had to install braces on our home entertainment center to point them in a downward direction. Also if you have an older TV like I do it may take you a little bit to figure out how to make the the DVR and Blu-Ray player both work in HD. My TV only has one HDMI hook up. Overall, I was very impressed with the sound quality and power of the system. I also like the sound balancing system that comes with it.

        Comments about Yamaha 5.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

        I bought this receiver as part of the HTIB YHT-497BL. This is a great system and easy to set up and calibrate. The only functions I wish it had, although I can do without, would be Airplay, Bluetooth and HDMI Standby Pass Through (my wife would rather not have it on all the time when she's watching TV). I can use the USB port to plug in my iPhone or iPad and control the functions with the remote. Also when setting up, I recommend a 16 gauge wire over the included 18 gauge. Set up was easy and I have my Sharp Aqous 60" connected on the HDMI out, and my DISH DVR and Sony PS3 connected on two of the HDMI in's. My Sony CD Changer is connected though one of the audio in's. I also purchased a Harmony 650 remote to control everything and it controls all the functions of the receiver. The sound quality is awesome and really packs the bass. Movies and sports sound great and you can change the sound inputs for whatever you want to watch. Playing music form the iPhone or CDs sounds great as well. Definitely worth the money if you don't want to spend too much.

          Comments about Yamaha 5.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

          Using this in my home theater. It replaced my older model Denon receiver. I've noticed a much more clear, crisp sound, especially from the center channel. It had all the inputs and outputs I needed to connect my other equipment - even those that still use old-style cables. I DO wish the unit had knobs to increase/decrease the bass and treble, instead of having to mess with the remote and get to a menu. This would be especially helpful when listening to FM without the TV set on. I bought the unit online and didn't really think about the lack of this feature. Otherwise, a good purchase. I wish Yamaha and others would include a printed owner's manual though...instead of a CD. I was thrilled when my new, SONY Blu-ray player included a complete, printed manual.
