Features

4K Ultra HD Pass-through for Super High Resolution Images
This AV receiver provides advanced HDMI® features including pass-through of 4K Ultra HD, which is gaining popularity. 4K Ultra HD refers to four times the resolution of a 1080p display. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K Ultra HD data from the source to the monitor 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.

HDMI CEC for Easy Operation
Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality^1. 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.

Discrete Amp Configuration for High Sound Quality
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.

USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front Panel
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.

Virtual CINEMA FRONT Provides Virtual 5-channel Surround Sound with High Quality and Resolution
With Virtual CINEMA FRONT, you will enjoy virtual 5-channel surround sound with higher quality and resolution by installing surround speakers at the front. You get more flexibility to arrange your speakers inside the room, along with easy enjoyment of high quality surround sound.

Extra Bass Provides Rich Bass Reproduction, Even with Small Speakers
Yamaha's exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you expect from the speaker size 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.

YPAO Sound Optimization for Automatic Speaker Set Up
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

ECO Mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20 Percent^2
Yamaha's new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20 percent. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu.

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.

Connection for YBA-11 Bluetooth Wireless Adapter
This AV receiver provides a DC out connection for the YBA-11 Bluetooth wireless technology adapter (optional accessory). You'll be able to stream music wirelessly from a Bluetooth-capable smartphone, tablet or PC, without a Wi-Fi environment.

Received 4/1/14 to upgrade a very good Yamaha RX 397. Initial setup is fast & easy. The (3) menus displayed on your TV are easy to read. The Yamaha display is bright & blue; large & small letters. I connected a satellite receiver & Sony BluRay via HDMI and an Onkyo CD player via digital coax.The first sound out of the box is very good. You'll want to tweak the sound to your tastes and many, many adjustments can be made. It takes a little time to learn the adjustments & menus, but 95% of them make sense. The owners manual (85 pgs.)is a CD-ROM. I prefer paper. The unit has five 100watt amps. Plenty of power for my room size, which is 12' by 20'. Volume level is 0-97; 60 is usually loud. The sound is clear, strong, musical with good definition & depth. Yamaha's "natural sound" is a good thing. Yamaha uses quality parts to produce "clean" sound. It has discrete amp configuration, found in higher-end receiver's, for high quality sound. FM radio reception is good. The feature list is long. Good value for the $$. The unit looks very cool ! I think Yamaha has a winner here. (download the manual ahead of time @ this site under "support")

I use this in my 5.1 hi fi system: Oppo blu ray, Samsung slim LED smart TV, 6 Klipsch.
I rpld a 367 in mid March with this for latest audio format compatibility from Dolby and DTS.
I dislike having to wade thru several choices to get to "2 Ch Stereo" and "5 Ch Stereo" for conventional recordings.
I have no need for "Hall in Vienna" or other such DSP features.
The unit has turned off for no reason twice whilst in use after a short period of time. I have written that off to the abundance of remotes in use before i got my Harmony updated.

    Comments about Yamaha 5.1 Channel AV Home Theater Receiver:

    I have several occasions where the video would go out on my tv which I'm running through my receiver. Turns out the HDMI connection was not secure and when I touched it the video came back on the tv. That has happened several times. Now I have the cable secured so the chance of the connection becoming loose is less. But I'm not really that happy with this type of connection. At least with the old plugs they stayed connected. The hdmi type of connection seems prone to coming loose.

    The sound is very good and we're very happy with that. I just need to write up a cheat sheet so me and my husband know which inputs do what. ie. AV1 is sound coming FROM the tv for my smart tv applications. HDMI4 is for the video/sound coming from my cable box.. AV3 is the DVD player. that sort of thing gets to be confusing especially for my husband who is not very tech savvy. But it's only been a few weeks. we'll get the hang of it eventually. Bought this model because my older Yamaha receiver died after many years of use. Hoping this one lasts as long.

          I bought this as a replacement for an old Aiwa receiver that wasn't compatible with my new TV. I was definitely planning on getting a Yamaha, and this receiver delivered. I'm running it through a pair of old Norman Labs 2-way speakers, and they've never sounded better. It is getting a lot of use with my iPod through the USB port. I can't wait until I get a surround setup for this, it should be incredible. Price is unbeatable for the sound quality. Don't pass this up.

            This receiver had the external interfaces that I needed to work in my somewhat older setup. You cannot stack the receiver due to cooling vents being placed on top and bottom unless you allow lots of airspace. I use the receiver as a convertor for recorded videos along with a plasma TV sccreen. Remote is easy to use with scenes that can be saved for the various equipment attached. The tuner is very good at picking up hard to reach radio stations both AM and FM. It is located in my basement.

                The HDMI-CEC problem maybe Samsung's fault, I don't know, and maybe it is hyped up way too much, but it just never worked the way I thought it should.
                Other than that I mated this receiver with low-priced in-wall monoprice speakers, and am very happy.

                  This product was recommended by my brother who's an Audiophile. I told him my budget and he asked me to get this Yamaha receiver for the Energy 5.1 Take Classic. This receiver is good for starters who has a budget. It's very easy to operate and delivers quality sound. I'm very happy with my first 5.1 set up
