These sound technologies transport you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with captivating, multidimensional sound that fills your room with amazing richness and depth. These sound technologies also allow for music, people, and objects to come alive in breathtaking detail and flow in precise choreography all around you, making you feel like you are right in the middle of the story.

MusicCast Your Music Everywhere

MusicCast is a revolution in network audio. Use all your MusicCast products together or separately — it’s completely up to you. Control it all from one app, intuitively, quickly, and easily. Use a sound bar, a wireless speaker, an AV receiver, or Hi-Fi audio; whichever suits you best. Mix and match, then expand your MusicCast system as you want. What’s more, Amazon Alexa with MusicCast gives you the ability to control all MusicCast devices with simple voice commands.


CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high, and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker delivers three-dimensional sound without the actual use of presence speakers.

MusicCast Surround

With wireless rear speakers, the fuss of hiding wires en route to the rear speakers is removed. You can also add a MusicCast wireless subwoofer, which can provide more options for subwoofer placement. All new from Yamaha, MusicCast Surround offers an easy way to enhance your home theater experience.

Phono Input

Enjoy music from your vinyl collection through the phono input terminals.

Amazon Alexa with MusicCast

Amazon Alexa-enabled devices can now control key functions of any MusicCast product using voice commands. Using two types of Alexa skills, the MusicCast Smart Home skill and MusicCast skill, you can play music, control volume, play playlists, and even link rooms together to play music all throughout the house. Discover a new, exciting way to control music and entertainment experiences in your home.

Intelligent Amp Assign

Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers, depending on what speaker layout is selected. For example, in a 7.1-channel system, when Zone 2 is turned off, all 7.1-channels will be used in the Main Zone. However, when Zone 2 is powered on, the power to the two surround back channels will automatically be redirected to the two speakers in Zone 2 and the Main Zone will receive 5.1-channels of power. Thanks to Intelligent Amp Assign, there’s no need to switch the speaker cables on the rear of the AV receiver.

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.
