A/V Receivers

Yamaha RX-V477, V577, V677 and V777BT A/V Receivers

Yamaha just announced its 2014 RX-V 77 Series network A/V receivers which feature Wi-Fi, Virtual CINEMA FRONT, and new streaming services.  The top three are 7.2-channel receivers with built-in Wi-Fi (RX-V777BT, RX-V677 and RX-V577) for seamless wireless connectivity to compatible devices.  The least expensive RX-V477 receiver is a 5.1-channel model without Wi-Fi. Also new for 2014 is Yamaha’s exclusive Virtual CINEMA FRONT technology, featured in all models, that lets consumers place all five speakers at the front of the listening area and still achieve surround sound performance. Finally, the line offers Spotify compatibility and HTC Connect for wirelessly streaming from HTC phones.

The top model, the RX-V777BT, is packaged with a Bluetooth wireless technology adapter for connectivity to yet another group of popular devices which contain personal music libraries. It also offers advanced features such as HDMI Zone B that supplies an additional HDMI audio and video feed to another room. The company’s proprietary YPAO R.S.C. with multipoint measurement calibrates the listening area for superior sound at every seating position. (The RX-V677 offers YPAO R.S.C.) The RX-V777BT also provides six HDMI inputs (including one that is MHL-compatible on the front panel) and two outputs with 4K 50/60p video upscaling. (The RX-V677 has one HDMI output.)

The RX-V777BT and RX-V677 add SiriusXM Internet Radio and Rhapsody music streaming to the list of sources. Both models include YPAO Volume which delivers full natural sound from movies and music – even at low volumes, and feature the latest HDMI version.

The RX-V577 enables great flexibility with Zone B speaker and dual subwoofer outputs. The RX-V577 and RX-V477 both have six HDMI inputs and one output with 4K Ultra HD pass-through, 3D and Audio Return Channel, as well as discrete amp configuration and 192 kHz/24-bit Burr-Brown DACs for all channels.

Like the recently announced RX-V377 5.1-channel AV receiver, the rest of the RX-V Series features Yamaha’s exclusive Extra Bass low-range enhancement technology that delivers richer bass while maintaining exceptional sound imaging and balance from subwoofers and speakers of any size.

As with the 2013 line, each model includes AirPlay, Internet radio (vTuner) and access to Pandora music streaming services, as well as the top consumer rated Yamaha AV Controller App for Apple iOS and Android devices.
