Yamaha RX-V385 A/V Receiver Proves Affordability

Entry-level 5.1-channel A/V Receiver Handles 4K HDR, Bluetooth and Bi-amping

Yamaha just announced their lowest priced home theater receiver for 2018. The $299 RX-V385 5.1-channel A/V receiver comes equipped with Dolby Vision, 4K Ultra HD, HDR10 and Bluetooth at an affordable price. It offers YPAO calibration, a proprietary Yamaha technology which analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound, automatically, in just a few minutes. Additionally, the RX-V385 incorporates CINEMA DSP technology, which supports the playback of HD audio options like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio to provide you with the most natural and expansive sound imaging possible in this entry-level receiver.

The RX-V385 expands on last year’s model, the RX-V383, by offering the ability to bi-amp the front speakers in 2.1-channel or 3.1-channel setups, which drives the treble and bass ranges with independent amplifiers. In addition to providing greater power, it also prevents interference between the high and low ends, further improving the sound of the front speakers. Furthermore, unlike its predecessor, the RX-V385 is equipped with binding post terminals on all channels, which provide better contact and allow for the use of easy-to-use banana connectors.

“The RX-V385 offers budding home theater buyers cutting-edge technology at an accessible price point,” said Robert Goedken, general manager, AV division, Yamaha Corporation of America. “When you factor in YPAO automatic acoustic technology, 4K Ultra HD support, HDR and Dolby Vision, this receiver gives entry-level consumers uncompromising value with everything they need to get started to enjoy a full 4K sound experience at home.”

Pricing and Availability
The Yamaha RX-V385 AV receiver will be available at the end of April 2018 at $299.95. Last year’s RX-V383 is currently discounted to $249 at Amazon while supplies last.
