Yamaha AV receivers are the perfect control centers for a home entertainment network. Their network functions include support for FLAC 96/24 (high quality lossless format), compatibility with Windows 7 and DLNA® 1.5 (for finding and playing digital sources) and Web Browser Control from a PC or PDA.
DLNA CERTIFIED - DLNA certification ensures a device has been tested and proven compatible with various CE, PC and mobile devices designed according to the DLNA Interoperability Guidelines. Products certified by DLNA will bear a logo that will give consumers peace of mind that the device they are purchasing has undergone rigorous testing and conforms to the Interoperability Guidelines.
Pandora - Pandora is free, personalized radio that plays music and comedy you’ll love. Just start with the name of one of your favorite artists, songs, comedians or composers and Pandora will create a custom station that plays similar tracks. Create up to 100 stations and easily switch between favorites.
Rhapsody - Meet your new music collection complete with millions of songs, entire albums and artist hits spanning the decades. This is more than just Internet radio. This is the power to play exactly the songs you want, wherever you are. Give it a try, sign in and start listening.
Dolby TrueHD - Dolby TrueHD is Dolby’s next-generation lossless technology developed for high-definition disc-based media. Dolby TrueHD delivers tantalizing sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master, unlocking the true high-definition entertainment experience on next-generation discs. When coupled with high-definition video, Dolby TrueHD offers an unprecedented home theater experience that lets you enjoy sound as stunning as the high-definition picture.
DTS-HD Master Audio - DTS-HD Master Audio delivers sound quality that matches the clear and vivid images of high-definition video. Blu-ray Disc™ and HD-DVD deliver five times the video resolution of standard DVD and produce images with stunning realism. But that's only half of the story. You need incredible sound to complete the high definition experience and DTS-HD Master Audio provides the highest quality multi-channel sound possible. Movies come alive with sound as lifelike as the picture and music becomes as real as a live performance.
Mobile High-Definition Link - MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) is the interface standard for high-speed digital video signal transmission that is developed for mobile devices. This interface transmits both digital audio and digital video signals from mobile devices (such as smartphones) using a single cable with any loss. As with HDMI®, MHL complies with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection).
HDMI - HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first and only industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. With the ability to deliver crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video via a single cable, HDMI dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest-quality home theater experience. HDMI can provide an interface between most audio/video sources, such as a set-top box, Blu-ray Disc player, DVD player or AV receiver and a video monitor, such as a high-definition television (HDTV), over a single cable.
Made for iPod®/iPhone®/iPad - “Made for iPod, iPhone and iPad” means that an electronic accessory has been designed to connect specifically to iPod, iPhone, iPad and has been certified by the developer to meet Apple® performance standards.
4K Pass-through - 4K pass-through receives super high-definition resolution video and passes it to a 4K compatible monitor. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats.
4K Upscaling - 4K upscaling boosts a lower resolution image to super high-definition resolution video. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats.
This unit allows you to configure a multi-zone audio system. The Zone 2 feature allows you to set this unit to reproduce separate input sources in the main zone and the second zone (Zone 2). You can control this unit from the second zone using the supplied remote control.
CINEMA DSP 3D Mode - The actually measured sound field data contains the information of the height of the sound images. CINEMA DSP 3D mode achieves reproduction of the accurate height of the sound images so that it creates the accurate and intensive stereoscopic sound fields in a listening room.
Virtual Presence Speaker - Virtual Presence Speaker mode provides the 3D sound without Front Presence speakers. The best way to enjoy 3D movies at home is with sound from a Yamaha AV receiver equipped with CINEMA DSP 3D.
SILENT CINEMA- SILENT CINEMA makes it possible to hear large-scale surround sound through ordinary headphones! This is a variation of CINEMA DSP technology that Yamaha developed to let you listen in private to movies and other multi-channel sources for hours without listening fatigue.
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 - With the press of a single button, anyone in the home can enjoy the performance of a Yamaha AV receiver. SCENE buttons found on the front panel, the middle of the remote control and on the AV Controller App are the key to simple receiver operation. For example, pressing the TV SCENE button will turn on the receiver, switch to the TV input and recall your selected DSP surround mode. One button is all it takes. While the receiver is preset with typical listening SCENEs, it is simple to customize a SCENE button for one touch recall of your favorite listening settings.
YPAO™ Automatic System Calibration - Yamaha’s YPAO system uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First, it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters, such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers and even the sound pressure level, etc. Until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room and you don't have to do anything!
ECO Mode - ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20 percent*. It can be set easily from the top of the GUI/OSD menu.
Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off. Yamaha measurement. vTuner Internet Radio vTuner uses the Internet as a global antenna, allowing you to find and play the thousands of radio stations on the Internet. 3D Yamaha receivers displaying this icon support 3D HDMI® pass-through from 3D-compatible Blu-ray Disc™, game and broadcast devices to 3D-compatible HDTVs. 3D provides a more engaging audio and video consumer experience when using 3D-capable products and 3D media content. Note that special eyewear may be required for viewing 3D content.
