    Features
    Wi-Fi Built-in and Wireless Direct Compatible for Easy Set Up
    Wi-Fi built-in capability allows wireless connection with your household wireless router, greatly simplifying system connections to enjoy network audio and music streaming services. If no Wi-Fi router is available, the unique Wireless Direct feature not only allows you to stream music directly from your smartphone or tablet via AV Controller App's Music Play feature, Apple® AirPlay® etc., but also control your receiver using the AV Controller App.

    Ultra HD (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.
    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.

    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.
    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 and Pandora®. The AV Controller App (from iTunes App Store or Google Play) lets you control various functions from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android devices.

    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.

    *Some models don't support album art display.
    Stream Millions of Songs with Spotify Connect
    With the Spotify app on your smartphone, you've got instant access to millions of songs. And now you can stream those songs to your Yamaha system by using Spotify Connect. Just hit play to start streaming music. What's more, when you've been listening on your smartphone outside and come inside, the song immediately streams to your AVR—like magic, you enjoy uninterrupted music. You can also personalize playlists and receive phone calls while listening to music.

    *The Spotify app and premium account are required. Visit spotify.com for more details.
    HTC Connect™ for Wireless Streaming
    HTC Connect lets you stream music to your AV receiver wirelessly. You don't need a separate app because HTC Connect is built right into your HTC phone. Simply swiping the HTC phone screen starts music output to the AV receiver, from the HTC device's local music sources or third party music sources.
    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 or Google Play to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone or Android devices. You can also use in as many as 23* different languages and customize the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available.

    *As of Spring 2013.
    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.
    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 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.
    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 Speakers deliver 3D sound without actual use of presence speakers.
    DSP Parameter Adjustment for Easy and Detailed Setting
    This AV receiver is equipped with a variety of sound programs that utilize Yamaha's original DSP technology. They allow you to easily create sound fields like actual movie theaters or concert halls in your room and enjoy natural stereoscopic sound fields. Now you can use the AV Controller App to adjust DSP parameters to your preference to match the type of music / movie or the mood you want to achieve. There are two modes, basic and advanced, that you can choose according to the type of adjustments you want to do.

    Gapless Playback Compatibility Allows Play without Interruption*
    Many live and classical albums have no gaps in the music. Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files. This provides playback with no interruptions, the way it was meant to be heard.

    * Compatible with WAV, FLAC and ALAC file formats, and input from USB / PC / NAS.
    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.

    Zone B output provides 2-channel sound in a second room
    Zone B output capability allows the receiver to send 2-channel sound to a second zone, so the main zone now has 5-channel output. This means that users can enjoy stereo sound in a second room. The same source will play in both zones (cannot use two sources).

    Total Purity Concept for the Finest Sound Quality
    The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. All models have a fully discrete power amplifier that helps to minimize distortion. They also adopt independent pure power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heatsinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure. Independent power supplies for the DACs are designed to further eliminate noise on certain models. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.
    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 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*
    Yamaha's 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.

    Compressed Music Enhancer
    Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3 and WMA. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.
    SCENE – A NEW LEVEL OF OPERATING EASE
