Product Details

Yamaha Black 5.1 Channel Home Theater System, Model YHT497BL

Provides simple operation, yet includes essential capabilities for high definition home audio video enjoyment, offering popular features like USB input for iPhone and color on-screen display, as well as a 5.1 channel speaker system with a powerful 6 ½" 100W subwoofer. This system is also ready for the future with sophisticated technologies like 4k video pass-through and ECO mode for lower power consumption.


  • 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
    • Full-range piano-black speaker system
    • 6-1/2” 100W active subwoofer
  • 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
