Even when it is impossible to install surround speakers behind the listening position, Virtual Cinema DSP reproduces virtual five-channel surround sound filled with realism, with only two front speakers. With Virtual Cinema Front, you will enjoy virtual five-channel surround sound with higher quality and resolution by installing surround speakers at the front. You get more flexibility to arrange your speakers inside the room, along with easy enjoyment of high quality surround sound.
The AV receiver ensures that action movies with loud, dynamic soundtracks will be heard in spectacularly realistic surround sound. The front, surround and centre speakers are high quality models capable of reproducing high definition audio and the subwoofer delivers clean, crisply powerful bass. Rounded corners give the speakers a better appearance.
Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for BD/DVD movie viewing, TV viewing, CD listening and Radio listening. Pressing a Scene button turns on the power, selects the input source and assigns the optimum DSP mode for that source.
Yamaha’ s exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you expect from the speaker size while maintaining good localisation 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 high power and presence.
The AV receiver was designed with a strong focus on achieving high sound clarity. It employs a discrete amp configuration and a low jitter PLL circuit, which contribute to its higher audio performance.
