Yamaha RX-V385 Reviews

Great Sound

By Kirk
Rated 5 out of 5

Great quality sound at an affordable price. Super easy to setup.

Exactly what I was looking for!

By Brody

I moved into a new house, and the previous owner left behind an A/V system - nice Cambridge wall mounted speakers and a sub. The receiver was an old Pioneer unit, and I just couldn't get it to work with modern TV and blu-ray equipment. So I started shopping around for an inexpensive unit that would provide 5.1 channel sound and handle HDMI inputs and outputs. Enter the Yamaha! It does so much at such a low price point! It communicates perfectly with my Samsung TV, and decodes multi-channel audio from OTA TV, online streaming services, and blu-ray. I also love how the TV remote automatically controls the volume of the unit through the bi-directional HDMI connection. I also love the bluetooth audio feature - my phone paired easily and plays Spotify throughout the living room. As an added bonus, the rear surround speakers mirror the fronts when playing 2 channel music - exactly what I would want to cover a room with background music. In short, an excellent priced unit without a lot of un-needed bells and whistles. You won't be disappointed!

Yamaha RX-V385 Wholesome sound goodness!!

This unit is so good, this is the second one I've bought! The original purchase replaced a higher end Pioneer system for our home theater. The sound, ease of use, and price point are SPOT ON!!! The second, purchased from B&H went into the man cave, for more home theater, & gaming....I've gone back & forth throughout the years bouncing from Yamaha to other manufacturers, but I keep coming back to Yamaha...Reliable product every time..

Better than expected

The Yamaha product has delivered to my expectations and more. This is my 2nd unit, the first one is about 5 years old. It is still working. This is why I bought the model again. The newer model has some improvements than the older one. Setup was easy, I like the YAO mode. When I ran the YAO, the sound was displaced nicely over my 5.1 system. Very pleased and the price was definitely a positive too!

Yamaha RX-V385 - Great A/V Receiver and Easy Setup

By Riley
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-12

I plugged in my TV, cable box, DVD player, ROKU and power cable then powered it up and everything just worked. I checked the firmware and it was up to date. I changed the view screen to show Cable Box, DVD and ROKU and that was about it. The ease of operation is great and the sound quality has improved from my previous receiver. The only down side is that I have a phono player that required an addition purchase of a pre-amp, as there is no phono input on this Yamaha A/V receiver....but that was a minor issue. If you don't want to spend a fortune on a A/V receiver I would definitely recommend this Yamaha unit.
