HDR10+, 8K/60Hz, and 4K/120Hz

This receiver supports end-to-end 8K/4K resolutions and higher refresh rate solutions with a single upgraded cable for seamless integration within the HDMI ecosystem. 4K/120Hz enables ultrafast motion UHD images to be crisp and razor-sharp, regardless of what's on the screen. In addition to displaying dynamic video content on a scene-by-scene basis, HDR10+ also provides, in a small amount of metadata, the scene characteristics between bright and dark so that important visual details are captured.

Enhanced Gaming Functionality

Enhance your favorite games, movies, and shows with features that include: Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) for smooth, lag-free viewing; Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) to reduce lag, stutter, and frame tearing for more fluid and detailed gameplay; Quick Media Switching (QMS) to eliminate the delay and blank frames before content is displayed; and Quick Frame Transport (QFT) which reduces latency for smoother no-lag gaming, and real-time interactive virtual reality. 

Cinema DSP 3D

This unique Yamaha proprietary sound field technology was created by combining measured sound field data with digital signal processing. By digitizing this vast trove of information and incorporating it into dedicated LSI devices, it effectively reproduces the spaces of concert halls and music clubs in your home.


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 simply placing the supplied microphone at your listening position and switching YPAO on, the system is automatically calibrated for optimum performance for your home theater.

Traditional Speaker Setup

This 5.1-channel speaker system includes four surround sound bookshelf speakers, one center channel speaker, and one subwoofer. Each speaker features the elegant beauty of a fine musical instrument, offering a stylish appearance that matches their high sound quality. Its compact design allows ease of placement in any convenient location within the listening room. Keyhole openings in the back allow for easy wall-mounting.

MusicCast Multi-Room Audio

Use your smartphone or tablet together with the MusicCast app to operate the AVR and change settings quickly and easily. The same app functions as a remote control for all of your MusicCast-compatible devices as well as having full multi-room audio controls.
