Product Specifications

The RX-V430 is a powerful and versatile 5-channel receiver, delivering 75 watts to each channel. The receiver provides plenty of processing and a host of Yamaha features. With powerful and varied sound processing and decoding, the RX-V430 provides Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Matrix 6.1, and Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS Digital Surround, and DTS-ES Matrix 6.1. It also incorporates Yamaha's Quad-Field Cinema DSP and Virtual Cinema DSP. In fact, it provides 21 surround programs and offers a total of 41 surround environment variations. Yamaha's proprietary ASIC LSI, the 32-bit YSS-938, assures top quality audio performance. Eager to take on challenging home theater situations, the RX-V430 has 4 video inputs and 1 video output. The RX-V430 has two audio-only inputs and one audio-only output. Including the audio portion of A/V source inputs, the receiver provides 1 optical and 1 coaxial digital input. When a source is selected, the receiver automatically chooses the best quality input connected - digital audio rather than analog audio, etc. The receiver also makes the same automatic selection for decoding, down the hierarchy from discrete multi-channel, to matrix, and then stereo. Building on technology incorporated into its world famous "silent" musical instruments, Yamaha has added HRTF and "Virtual" technology to create a realistic surround movie effect using standard, two-channel headphones. The RX-V430's rear panel has input jacks to accommodate an external decoder. The receiver is ready for any other 5.1 multi-channel format, should one be developed. Yamaha's famed low impedance drive circuitry is included in this receiver so that it can handle virtually all loads and a wide variety of speakers. The receiver provides a subwoofer pre-out so that the low frequency signals can go directly to your powered subwoofer. Up to 40 preset AM and FM stations can be grouped in five groups eight stations. These groupings make it easy for family members to easily access their favorite stations or to have musical genres, such as all the jazz stations, grouped together. For easy operation, the RX-V430 comes with Yamaha's remote control featuring built-in preset codes to control other audio or video components.
