CINEMA DSP 3D

This unique Yamaha proprietary sound field creation technology was created by combining measured sound field data with digital signal processing. Yamaha collected sound field data from famous concert halls and music clubs around the world, utilizing its wealth of experience in the fields of concert hall design, public address and mixing. By digitizing that vast trove of information and incorporating it into dedicated LSI devices, it effectively reproduces the spaces of those concert halls on home equipment. Immerse yourself in the astounding realism of your movies and music with this sound technology.

Easy Sound Optimization with YPAO™

YPAO (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer) analyzes the room acoustics and your system, then precisely adjusts various audio parameters to provide the best sound for your room. By placing the supplied microphone at your listening position and switching YPAO on, the system is automatically tuned for optimum performance in your home.

High-quality Parts and Design

All Yamaha AV receivers feature fully discrete power amplifiers to minimize distortion and adopt independent pure power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry. They house ultra-high performance 384 kHz / 32-bit DACs, also with independent power supplies. These support in reproducing audio for high resolution sound sources without noise. Moreover, a new high sound quality IC is employed for volume control and large heat sinks suppress vibration. Down to every detail, this system’s AV receiver is designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.

Streaming Services

Explore worlds of music with built-in music streaming services*. Syncing your playlists and likes from your smart device and discovering new music becomes even easier with your receiver.

AirPlay 2

Hey Siri. Play music in the kitchen and living room.

AirPlay 2 adds the ability to stream Apple Music and other streaming services to multiple MusicCast devices throughout your home. Easily control it from your iPhone or iPad, link it with a HomePod, or simply ask Siri for an assist.

Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant on MusicCast

Touch or voice control – the choice is yours. Intuitively control a single MusicCast product or an entire whole-of-home system with ease using Alexa or Google Assistant and hear your home come alive.

In or Out

Bluetooth connectivity is also included to stream into your receiver or out from the receiver to another Bluetooth device such as a pair of headphones. The Bluetooth output has been improved, reducing lip sync delays from digital sources.

MusicCast

Add more MusicCast devices to the same network and start sharing audio throughout the home or working space. Consider the MusicCast 50 or MusicCast 20 wireless speakers as part of your MusicCast family to listen in any room. Download the MusicCast app and convert your home into a sonic environment.

MusicCast App

The free MusicCast Controller app puts control of your wireless AV receiver in the palm of your hand. Use the MusicCast Controller app to operate the speaker, change settings, select your source and control music playback.

Zone B

This output capability allows the receiver to send 2-channel sound to a second zone, so the Main Zone now has 3-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). Zone B always mirrors the audio output in the Main Zone.

Traditional Design Enhances Any Room

The included speakers feature the elegant beauty of a fine musical instrument. Their clean, stylish appearance matches their high sound quality while their compact design allows them to be placed in any convenient location within the listening room. Keyhole openings in the back allow these speakers to be neatly mounted on a wall.

Advanced YST II Produces Powerful Low End

The Advanced YST II subwoofer combines negative-impedance and constant current principles to drive the speaker cone with tight control. It optimizes effective speaker impedance to maintain stable and accurate low range response and high sound pressure levels, for more natural and energetic bass reproduction.
