  • 1Description

Yamaha's YHT-897BL 5.1 Channel Home Theater in a Box System offers a receiver / player with digital surround sound, seamless functionality and wide connectivity including one HDMI output, at a price that makes a movie theater-like experience available to any budget.

The YHT-897BL system offers four satellite speakers with a low-profile center channel and a powered sub-woofer. 5.1 channel surround sound audio processing and multi-channel Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD, DTS Audio Decoding creates a wider, more enveloping surround sound experience. The HDMI output upscales content to full 1080p.

Other features include expanded Apple connectivity with AirPlay and a versatile USB input for iPad compatibility. This system is also ready for the future with sophisticated technologies like 4k video pass-through, multi-language color OSD and 20% less power consumption with eco mode.

Lastly, this AV receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV controller app that is downloadable from the iTunes app store or Android market to control power on / off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android phones. There is also a tablet version available.

4K Pass-Through for Next Generation Super High Resolution Images
This AV receiver provides advanced HDMI features including 4K pass-through. 4K refers to four times the resolution of a 1080p display. While not yet available, 4K displays and sources are sure to become popular in the future. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K data from the source to the display, for image clarity far beyond present standards
HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel
3D means the receiver can handle 3D signal data. The Audio Return Channel (ARC) function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable, so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable, with no need for an extra optical cable
Network Functions
This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation. You can connect the receiver to a PC to enjoy Internet Radio. The AV controller app (from iTunes app store or Android market) lets you control various functions from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android phones
AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation
This AV receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV controller app that is downloadable from the iTunes app store or Android market to control power on / off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android phones. A tablet version is also available
AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to AV Receiver
This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means it can accept wireless music streaming from iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on Macs or PCs. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can view metadata such as song title, artist name as well as album art via AV receiver's on-screen display
YPAO Sound Optimization for Automatic Speaker Setup
YPAO analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes. It's like having a professional installer calibrate your system
USB Digital Connection for iPod, iPhone and iPad on the Front Panel
A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod / iPhone / iPad, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod / iPhone / iPad is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver's remote control unit to operate the iPod / iPhone / iPad music playback functions
SCENE for One-Touch Start
Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can re-set 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 and Virtual Presence Speaker
CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD audio sources. Virtual presence speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers
Input Selection in HDMI Standby Through Mode
When the AV receiver is in HDMI standby through mode, the input source (Blu-ray disc player, game console, etc.) for viewing on the monitor can be changed via the remote control. There's no need to turn on the AV receiver in order to switch sources
HDMI CEC for Easy Operation
Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, it 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 unit to control player functions like skip and stop
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 sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is pushed toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer trim takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound
Compressed Music Enhancer
When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should
Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
Adaptive DRC automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume level. This ensures that you hear clear dialogue and vocals, and all sound effects at comfortable levels. There is no need to adjust the volume level as you listen; everything from whispers to big explosions will be heard clearly and comfortably at the same volume setting. It also tones down loud TV commercials, and is ideal for low-volume, late-night listening, when you do not want to disturb others
Eco Mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20%
Yamaha's new eco mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu
Selectable Auto Power Down
Auto power down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours
Low Standby Power Consumption
Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.1W in IR standby mode (1W in HDMI standby through mode, 2W in network standby mode)
Video Features
Supports Deep Color (30-/36- bit), x.v.Color, 24Hz refresh rate and auto lip-sync compensation

iPod / iPhone song titles displayed in English and Western European languages on the front panel
Multi language color OSD for improved visibility
