Ultimate Audio Experience

Yamaha's incredible CINEMA DSP HD3 literally takes the surround sound experience to new heights, using two CINEMA DSP engines to produce higher and wider sound fields. YPAO 3D provides automatic sound parameter optimization that measures the direction of the front, surround and presence speakers, as well as the height of the presence speakers and applies appropriate compensation. This maximizes the 3D sound field effectiveness of the CINEMA DSP HD3 programs.



Ultra-high Performance DACs for Superior Sound Quality

Ultra-high performance ESS Technology 192 kHz/32-bit ES9016 DACs for the seven main channels produce an unsurpassed sound stage with 124 dB dynamic range and super low distortion and noise levels. High-quality ESS ES9006 DACs power the presence channels. This AV receiver's sound reproduction will satisfy the most demanding listeners.



Built-in Wi-Fi Provides Superior Functionality with Easy Setup

Built-in Wi-Fi improves installation flexibility. WPS and other types of Wi-Fi setup are supported.
