  • YHT-599U Home Theater in a Box System
    The YHT-599U provides simple operation with network control via free Yamaha AV Controller App, plus enhanced audio capabilities with CINEMA DSP 3D for an enveloping home theater experience from a 5 channel speaker package and a powerful 6-1/2" 100 W subwoofer. With expanded Apple connectivity, including AirPlay and versatile USB input for iPad compatibility, this system is also ready for the future with sophisticated technologies like 4K video pass-through and 20 percent less power consumption with ECO mode.

  • 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 an iPod, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on a Mac® or PC. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can view metadata such as song title and artist name as well as album art* via the AV receiver's on-screen 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. The 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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).
