It provides up to 450W of total output power, including its 50W RMS powered subwoofer, and supports Bluetooth wireless audio streaming from compatible devices. The included receiver also has Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity onboard with various music services built-in.

This receiver supports 4K and HDR pass-through and has four HDMI inputs and one output, which supports ARC for getting display-based audio, such as from the display's built-in apps, to the receiver. It also upscales 1080p video to 4K UHD via HDMI. Various HD audio formats are supported, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. For setup ease, the YPAO sound optimization feature uses an included microphone to analyze your room's acoustics and adjust the system's output for enhanced sound quality.

Access to certain internet-based content may require a subscription to a service.

Enhance Your TV Sound

This full 5.1-channel home theater package is designed to provide clear, balanced sound for your favorite movies, TV shows, music, and video games.

4K Ultra HD Support with 4K/60p, HDR, and BT.2020

The receiver in this system passes through 4K UHD video at 60 frames per second so you can enjoy the high definition video quality of 4K without degradation. All HDMI ports are also HDCP 2.2 compatible to comply with 4K copyright protection, in addition to the wider color gamut of BT.2020 pass-through, plus the HDR10, Dolby Vision, and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) HDR formats. Via a future firmware update, eARC brings multichannel audio (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, etc.) from your display's built-in apps, such as Netflix and YouTube, to the receiver over the connected HDMI cable.

CINEMA DSP 3D Technology

This sound field creation is designed to reproduce the dynamics of famous venues in your room for enhanced realism and immersion.

Sound Calibration with YPAO

YPAO (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer) is engineered to analyze the room acoustics and your system, then adjust various audio parameters to help provide the best sound for your room. Place the included microphone at your listening position and turn YPAO on to tune the system for optimal performance in its installed setting.

Discrete Amplifier Configuration

The included receiver uses a discrete amp configuration to help minimize distortion, as well as independent power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry. Its onboard DACs also have their own independent power supplies to reproduce high-resolution audio virtually without noise. Large heat sinks help suppress vibration to further enhance sound quality.

Integrated Streaming Services

Sync your playlists and liked songs from your compatible smart device and discover new music with the streaming services built into the included receiver. Enjoy Spotify Connect, Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM Internet Radio, TIDAL, Deezer, Napster, and more.

AirPlay 2 with Siri Compatibility

AirPlay 2 adds the ability to stream Apple Music and other streaming services to multiple MusicCast devices throughout your home. Control it from your iPhone or iPad, link it with your HomePod, or ask Siri for help.

Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant Control

Control the receiver and all your MusicCast devices with your Alexa- or Google Assistant-enabled device.

Bluetooth Input and Output

Stream to the receiver from your Bluetooth-enabled device, such as your smartphone or tablet, or output from the receiver to your Bluetooth headphones or speakers.

MusicCast Multiroom Audio and App Control

Add more MusicCast devices to the same network and share audio throughout your home or working space. Download the MusicCast app for control of all your MusicCast devices. The MusicCast Controller app lets you operate the receiver, change your settings or source, and control music playback.

MusicCast Surround

Add a pair of MusicCast 20 speakers to create a 5.1-channel setup with wireless rear surround speakers.

Zone B Output for Second-Room Sound

The receiver can send 2-channel audio to a second zone, making your Main Zone a 3-channel setup. This lets you enjoy stereo audio in a second room while playing back the same audio from the Main Zone's three speakers.

Advanced YST II for Enhanced Bass

This subwoofer design combines negative-impedance and constant current principles to help drive the speaker cone with tight control. It optimizes effective speaker impedance to maintain stable, accurate low-range response and high sound pressure levels for more natural and energetic bass reproduction.
