Yamaha RX-V385 5.1 Channel AV Receiver in Black

When it comes to entertainment, connection is key. That's why you'll need the Yamaha RX-V385. This 5.1 channel receiver is designed to be your entertainment hub, connecting speakers to 4K TVs, along with Blu-Ray players, subwoofers, CD players and more. Having everything connected to one hub is an absolute necessity—especially when that hub acts as a preamp, an amplifier, and an AM/FM radio tuner. With those features locked down, the Yamaha RX-V385 is ready to perform and connect high-powered home theater speakers. The 5.1 channel system allows it to reach out to five full speakers (like two floor standing, two bookshelf and a center channel) as well as a powerful subwoofer. Once you've got your mighty sound-producing speakers locked down and linked via speaker wire, explore all the ways you can connect— and all the things you can do.

Connecting, Producing, Exploring Sound and Video

Whether you're connecting to the Yamaha RX-V385 via Bluetooth or watching a film in outrageously detailed 4K, this AV receiver knows the right way to optimize what you're seeing and hearing. It supports HDR video and Dolby Vision along with boosted bass production. But what truly sets this model apart is YPAO technology (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer). This scanning system explores your space's acoustics before working to balance out certain settings, all to create the best sonic experience possible. There's even an energy-saving ECO mode that helps to lower power usage when in use. Nearly every element of the Yamaha RX-V385 is optimized for modern life.

If you're not sure that this budget-friendly AV receiver is the right model for you, you're in the right spot.

  • Built for Performance
    Discrete Amp Configuration

    The RX-V385 was designed with a strong focus on achieving exceptionally high-clarity sound. It employs a discrete amp configuration and a low-jitter PLL circuit, which contributes to its excellent audio performance.
  • Designed for Sound
    Bi-Amp Connection

    The RX-V385 offers the ability to bi-amp compatible front speakers (L, R), which drives the high and low ranges with independent amplifiers.

You'll enjoy video and music with sound that has exceptional power and presence.
