  • 1Description

The Yamaha YHT-5920UBL 5.1-Channel Home Theater in a Box System provides 675W of total output power, including its 100W powered subwoofer, and supports Bluetooth, AirPlay, DLNA, and Spotify Connect wireless audio streaming. This system supports 3D and 4K pass-through and has six HDMI inputs and one output, which supports ARC for getting TV-originating audio, such as from the TV's apps, to the receiver.

The YHT-5920UBL supports HD Audio with CINEMA DSP and has other audio processing features such as Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD Master Audio. For setup ease, Yamaha has the AV SETUP GUIDE app, which will direct you through the setup process with images of the system's components and how to connect them. To complement this easy setup, YPAO will analyze your room's acoustics and adjust the system's output for optimal sound using the included mic.

Bluetooth Compatible for Wireless Music Streaming
The YHT-5920UBL is equipped with Bluetooth functionality to let you easily enjoy wireless music playback from smartphones and other devices. The Compressed Music Enhancer from Yamaha is now optimized for Bluetooth audio transmissions and designed to ensure that your music will have vivid, lively sound quality during wireless playback.
4K Ultra HD Pass-through with HDCP 2.2
The YHT-5920UBL supports 4K Ultra HD pass-through at 60 frames per second. Fully enjoy the high definition video quality of 4K without degradation, along with HDCP 2.2, a standard for 4K video transmission.
HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel
The YHT-5920UBL supports 3D video signals. Additionally, the Audio Return Channel function enables audio to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable, so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable.
HDMI CEC for Easy Operation
Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. When the unit is connected to a compatible CEC-enabled TV, the receiver will turn on and off together with the TV and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver's remote control to command source players with functions like skip, play, and pause.
Network Functions
This system provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and enhance operation. You can connect the AV receiver to a computer with WebBrowser Control and have two-way control of Internet radio, Pandora, and Spotify. The AV Controller App, which is available on iTunes and Google Play, lets you control various functions from your iOS or Android device.
Built-in Wi-Fi and Wireless Direct
Built-in Wi-Fi allows for a wireless connection with your wireless router, simplifying system connections for enjoying networked audio and music streaming services. If a Wi-Fi router is not available, the Wireless Direct feature not only allows you to stream music directly from your smartphone or tablet via the AV Controller App, AirPlay, and others, but also allows for control of the AV receiver.
AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to Home Theater System
This system features AirPlay, allowing it to accept wireless music streaming from compatible iOS devices, as well as from iTunes on a computer, making it easy to enjoy your music through your home theater system from virtually wherever it's stored. You can view metadata such as song title, artist name, and album art inside the receiver's on-screen display.
Stream Millions of Songs with Spotify Connect
With a valid subscription, Spotify Connect will allow you to stream your Spotify music to your home theater system. Just hit play to start streaming. When you listen to Spotify outside on your smartphone or tablet and come inside, the song immediately streams to your system, allowing no interruption to your music playback.
Extensive Audio Codec and Format Support
This system is compatible with many audio formats such as Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio. It is also compatible with high-resolution audio codecs such as DSD / AIFF / FLAC / WAV / Apple Lossless. You can enjoy the sound quality of these various high-resolution audio codecs from the USB input on the front panel or from network-connected devices.
AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation
This system lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller App that is downloadable from iTunes, Google Play, or the Amazon Appstore to control the power, volume, input selections, DSP modes, and more from an iOS or Android device. You can also use as many as 23 different languages and customize the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions.
DSP Parameter Adjustment for Easy and Detailed Setting
This system is equipped with a variety of sound programs that allow you to easily create sound fields like actual movie theaters or concert halls in your room to enjoy natural stereoscopic sound fields. You can use the AV Controller App to adjust the DSP parameters in a basic or advanced mode to match the mood of your favorite movie or music album.
Front USB Connection for iOS Devices
A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iOS device, which also charges it while connected. Because the digital signal from the device is transmitted directly to the system, there is no signal loss or interference. In addition, you can use the receiver's remote control unit to operate the device for basic playback control.
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 digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.
Gapless Playback Compatibility Allows Play without Interruption
Many live and classical albums have no gaps in the music. Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files. This provides playback with no interruptions, the way these tracks were meant to be heard.
YPAO Sound Optimization for Automatic Speaker Setup
YPAO (Yamaha Parametric Acoustic Optimizer) analyzes the room's acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates the audio parameters to achieve optimum sound.
Virtual CINEMA FRONT Provides Virtual 5-Channel Surround Sound
As an alternate setup configuration, Virtual CINEMA FRONT allows you to install all of the speakers at the front and enjoy virtual 5.1-channel surround sound when rear speaker placement is not possible.
Extra Bass Provides Rich Bass Reproduction
This low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you would expect from the speaker size while maintaining good localization 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.
Total Purity Concept for the Finest Sound Quality
Yamaha's Total Purity Concept encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity preamplification, anti-vibration technology, and independent pure power supplies. All models have fully discrete power amplifiers that help minimize distortion and adopt pure independent power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heat sinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure, and independent power supplies for the DACs are designed to further eliminate noise.
Discrete Amp Configuration
This system was designed with a strong focus on achieving a high level of sound clarity. It employs a discrete amplifier configuration and a low-jitter PLL circuit, which contribute to its excellent audio performance.
SCENE for One-Touch Start
Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can reset the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.
HD Audio with CINEMA DSP 3D
CINEMA DSP 3D is designed to provide a wide, high, and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources.
Virtual Presence Speaker and Virtual Surround Back Speaker
With the power of CINEMA DSP 3D, the Virtual Presence Speaker function makes full use of center and surround speakers to create audible information from where presence (height) speakers are typically installed. In addition, this model also features a Virtual Surround Back Speaker function. Even without using surround back speakers, you can experience more natural, lifelike sound from behind you, without physical speakers being installed in the surround back area of the listening environment.
Subwoofer Trim for Improved Sound Imaging
The Subwoofer Trim Control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused soundstage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is "pushed" toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim Control takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.
AV SETUP GUIDE for Easier Installation
The AV SETUP GUIDE is designed to make it easier to perform the set up process for your system. This app assists you with cable connections between the AV receiver and source devices, and guides you through various settings such as speaker connections, TV and source device connections, and power amplifier assignments. System illustrations and actual AV receiver images help you understand how to make the connections between devices. It is available in multiple languages and is designed for iOS and Android tablets.
Selectable Auto Power Standby
Auto Power Standby lets you save energy by automatically turning off the receiver's power after 20 minutes, two, four, eight or 12 hours.
ECO Mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20%
When ECO mode is turned on it can reduce power consumption by about 20 percent, compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off, measured by Yamaha.
Versatile Playback Options
DSD 2.8 MHz / 5.6 MHz, FLAC / WAV / AIFF 192 kHz / 24-bit, Apple Lossless 96 kHz / 24-bit playback.
