·         Balanced Sound Experience
This 5.1-channel home theater system comes with an AV receiver and a speaker package (one center channel, two front channel and two surround speakers, plus a subwoofer), to deliver a clear, balanced sound for any listening experience. Enjoy your favorite movies, TV shows, music and video games, all with one, easy system


·         4K Ultra HD HDMI Support
Providing complete compatibility with the latest HDMI standards, the AV receiver in this package delivers transmission of 4K video at 60 frames/second pass-through. It also supports HDR (high dynamic range) Video including Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log-Gamma which provides incredible contrast, smooth tone and rich, bright colors—giving you full, high-definition enjoyment with an exceptionally realistic and natural picture quality


·         CINEMA DSP
Exclusive Yamaha CINEMA DSP technology supports playback of HD Audio (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, etc.), providing natural and expansive sound imaging. CINEMA DSP transforms the dynamics of the listening environment, with acoustic reproduction of famous venues such as the Bottom Line, Roxy Theater, and European cathedrals—letting you experience their ambience right in your room


·         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


·         Discrete Amp Configuration
The included AV receiver was designed with a strong focus on achieving exceptionally high clarity sound. It employs a discrete amp configuration and a low-jitter PLL circuit, which contributes to its excellent audio performance


·         Rich Bass Reproduction
This exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you would expect from smaller sized speakers 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


·         Virtual CINEMA FRONT
Even when it is impossible to install surround speakers behind the listening position, you can enjoy virtual 5-channel surround sound with all of the speakers placed in the front of the room


·         Bluetooth with Music Enhancer
Thanks to its built-in Bluetooth functionality, this receiver lets you enjoy easy wireless music playback from smartphones and other devices. The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha is now optimized for Bluetooth audio transmissions to ensure that your music will have vivid, dynamic sound quality during wireless playback


·         Scenes
Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver or remote selects the input source and DSP mode. You can re-set the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds


·         AV Setup Guide
Use this special app and get expert assistance with cable connections between the AV receiver and source devices. It even guides you through various other settings such as speaker connections, TV and source device connections and power amplifier assignments


·         ECO Mode
When ECO Mode is turned on it can reduce power consumption by about 20 percent*, thanks to an advanced energy saving design. *Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement)


·         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
