Yamaha Black 5.1 Channel Home Theater System, Model YHT899UBK

An exciting new HTiB that provides simple operation via free Yamaha AV Controller App, plus enhanced audio capabilities with CINEMA DSP 3D for an enveloping home theater experience from a high performance 5-channel speaker system package and a powerful 10” 100 W subwoofer. With a 115 W 5-channel AV receiver and expanded Apple connectivity with AirPlay®, and versatile USB input for iPad compatibility, this system is also ready for the future with sophisticated technologies like 4K pass-through, multi-language color OSD and 20 percent less power consumption with ECO mode.

Features:

  • 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. 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
  • 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. The AV Controller App (from iTunes® App Store, Google Play or Amazon Appstore) lets you control various functions from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android™ devices
  • AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation
    This AV receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller App that is downloadable from the iTunes App Store, Google Play or Amazon Appstore to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android devices. A tablet version is also available
  • MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) Support for High Quality Video and Audio
    MHL provides easy, direct connection of compatible mobile phones and this AV receiver. Playback of up to 1080p video and multi-channel audio from the phone is supported. The receiver also charges the connected phone. Play, Stop and other basic operations can be controlled from the remote control
  • AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to AV 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 Macs or PCs. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can use view metadata such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via AV receiver's on-screen display
    • *Some models don't support album art display
  • 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, iPhone and iPad on the Front Panel
    A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone/iPad 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/iPad 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 reset 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 3D and Virtual Presence Speaker
    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 actual use of presence speakers
  • Input Selection in HDMI Standby Through Mode
    When the AV receiver is in HDMI Standby Through mode, the input source (Blu-ray Disc™ player, game console, etc.) for viewing on the monitor can be changed via the remote control. There’s no need to turn on the AV receiver in order to switch sources
  • 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 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
  • 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 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
  • Low Standby Power Consumption
    Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.1 W in IR Standby mode (1 W in HDMI Standby Through mode, 2 W in Network Standby mode)
  • 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
    • Charging of iPod, iPhone and iPad via USB when AV receiver is off
    • iPod/iPhone song titles displayed in English and Western European languages on the front panel
    • Multi-language color OSD for improved visibility
    • Audio input assign capability for HDMI and component video input
    • Audio delay for adjusting lip-sync (0-250 ms)
    • 40-station preset tuning / auto preset tuning

      Comments about Yamaha Black 5.1 Channel Home Theater System:

      Since we will be using it in our Living Room, which is accoustically challenged, we were not very much critical about super sound quality. But its styling was important. We have very contemporary setting. It looks very nice with that kind of setting. Sound is good in higher volume.

      Comments about Yamaha Black 5.1 Channel Home Theater System:

      It was easy to setup, easy to configure. The speakers are rated at 6 ohms, prior to installation, you can either change them to 6 or continue at 8. There's nothing wrong playing at 8 if you don't want too much bass. Even at 8 ohms, it sounds excellent. Get this baby!

      Comments about Yamaha Black 5.1 Channel Home Theater System:

      Attractive, very easy to set-up, great sound. This system comes extremely well packaged, but beware that this box is large and heavy(98 lbs.). The main speakers are tall and have very small bases which contributes to them being very easy to tip over. I compensated for this by mounting larger bases on the mains which solved the problem. The included wiring is very small gauge and cheap, tho adequate for most people to use. I used high quality 14 gauge,oxygen free, pure copper wire with gold plated banana plugs. The receiver and speakers are equipped with 5 way binding posts which allow banana plugs to be used. These are much more positive for connecting, and never loosen up and short out. The GUI is easy to navigate. Just make sure that before connecting your speakers that you change the speaker impedance in the GUI to 6 ohms from 8 ohms, since the speakers have a 6 ohm requirement. I have this system set-up in my downstairs family room for watching games, movies, and TV shows. The sound is super!
