This AV receiver is equipped with Bluetooth functionality to let 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, lively sound quality during wireless playback.

Compressed Music Enhancer
When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.

4K, HDR and BT.2020
Darker blacks, whiter whites and more vivid colours. This unit supports the latest HDMI standards thanks to the transmission of 4K video at 60 frames per second (pass-through only). Fully enjoy the high-definition video quality of 4K without degradation along with HDCP 2.2 that fully complies with the latest copyright protection, a standard for 4K video transmission. It also supports the wider colour gamut of BT.2020 pass-through.

Sound Optimization
YPAO (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer) analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes, ensuring that the listening area is tuned to provide the best audio experience possible.

Rich Bass Reproduction
This exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you would expect from smaller speakers while maintaining good localization and sound balance, even with compact front speakers. You'll enjoy video and music with sound that has exceptional power and presence.
