Yamaha RX-V471 review

 

We're bowled over by the entry-level model of Yamaha's 25th anniversary amp line-up.

Class-leading sound ; Useful features ; Fabulously easy to use

No networking or zone 2 output ; Little manual control of RoomEQ

Yamaha RXV-471 review

 

There has been something of a dry spell for new AVRs of late. Months have passed without seeing one then, like buses, Yamaha launches the five-model strong RXV-x71 lineup all at once. To celebrate the 25 years since the launch of its Cinema DSP...

Yamaha RX-V471 review

 

The Yamaha RX-V471 is a well-appointed, highly musical AV receiver that punches above its budget price tag. It's well built, sounds great, and even throws in USB playback. After a couple of years out of sync, Yamaha is back in the groove.

Refined, well-rounded audio performance ; High-quality digital-signal processing modes ; Supremely easy to use ; USB music playback

No Ethernet networking ; Not massively dynamic ; No album art support outside of iOS devices

The Yamaha RX-V471 is a terrific-sounding, well-engineered AV receiver for the 3D generation. Features such as USB media playback, auto calibration, and HDMI standby pass-through help to nudge it ahead of much of the competition, and its DSP modes are...

Ridiculously good value?

Simple and effective 5.1 home cinema receiver with some impressive DSP modes on-board.

Solid Device

 

Great for the price of $200!

Has various surround settings depending on what I listen to (when I use the music setting, it sounds phenomenal) ; Have 4 HDMI inputs, allowing me to easily switch from my PC to my cable box to my Wii to my USB without touching my TV's input settings ;...

Can't have multiple YPAO profiles ; Took me awhile to get it to work with my video card's HDMI, but I did eventually

nice

 

good sound quality for the price, easy to setup, auto-switches decoding based on inputs: for instance, if you enable 5-channel stereo (stereo upmix), you can toggle back to DTS if your source is suddenly outputting 5.1 channel. lots of options for...

only able to configure some things via on-screen menu, which is a pain because I only use it as a receiver for my PC (I don't want to have to have the receiver on all the time just to see video, so I have to unplug from PC and plug into receiver to...

RX-V471 No problems with Tuner or Sub Output

 

I was concerned about the prior reviewer claiming Tuner performance was poor. Using the same (old) antenna that was on my Sony AVR, the RX-V471 is pulling in FM stations better than the Sony did. Also happy to report that the LFE/Sub-Output is working...

Very good price/performance value

Great first Home Theater Receiver

 

Got this on sale for $199 delivered. It's the year old model, appears the only thing different than the current model (at $150 higher price tag) is the exclusion of Apple AirPlay. If I decide I want it I'll buy AppleTV for $99 separately. Bought this...

None so far

Best value 5.1 receiver

 

Great sound and value at $300 minus $80 gift card ($220 net). Easy setup and self adjusting with the included microphone

Much larger than my old receiver but seems to be pretty standard in size for this type of equipment. It makes a large click sound when it turns on and off, kind of annoying
