Yamaha Announce NEW RX-V81 Series AV Receivers – ORDER NOW!
The latest AV Recievers from Yamaha have just been announced and each receiver this year will be Bluetooth capable and compatible with the latest HDCP 2.2 protection as well as featuring 4k/60p pass-through, HDR, BT.2020 pass-through and every networked model will feature MusicCast!
The RX-V381 starts the line-up (£349.95) as a 5.1 AV Receiver with all the standard features like auto speaker calibration and Yamaha’s original technology like Extra Bass and CinemaDSP.
The RX-V481 5.2 AV Receiver (£399.95) is next up with networking support and MusicCast. All of the inputs and sources the RX-V481 has fed to it can be streamed across your home network to other MusicCast products like wireless speakers, soundbars, micro systems or even your HiFi if it features a MusicCast RN603. The RX-V481D will also be available as an alternative model to the RX-V481 but with DAB radio included on board.
The RX-V581 7.2 AV Receiver (£499.95) is the starting point in the range with support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X on board. Yamaha has huge experience in using height or presence speakers so using ceiling speakers or up-firing speakers is proven territory for them. Plus with their massive development history in DSP technology you can be sure your content that you listen to that isn’t in Atmos or DTS:X can be utilised as well.
With the RX-V681 7.2ch AV Receiver (£599.95) , you'll find a hint of some of the higher end features you might find on Yamaha’s Aventage models but at a more affordable price. There is a more flexible Zone 2, which can intelligently switch between an Atmos setup and a set of external speakers based on what you’re listening to. There’s also an MM phono stage on board which means with MusicCast you can distribute your favourite records all over your home network with just a few taps of an app.
The RX-V781 7.2ch AV Receiver (£699.96), adds a 2nd HDMI output for a projector/TV setup and a full aluminium front panel. The YPAO features an upgraded multi-point measurement and an increased power rating over the RX-V681. There’s also upgraded components inside providing a further refined sound quality and Pre-level outputs to allow the connection of external power amplifiers at a later date.
