Yamaha RX-V475 review

 

When we set up our first head-to-head listening tests with the latest crop of 2013 AV receivers, Yamaha's RX-V475 ($400 street) came out on top, besting Pioneer's VSX-823-K ($400) and even Denon's $600 AVR-E400 .

The Yamaha RX-V475 offered the best sound quality in our subjective AV receiver listening tests. Its feature set is also decent for the price, with five HDMI inputs (including an MHL-compatible input), built-in AirPlay, and basic networking...

Some similarly priced receivers offer six HDMI inputs. The RX-V475 also has some confusing design choices, including an indecipherable remote and poorly laid out back panel. And the RX-V475's bulky design is hard to overlook when Marantz's NR1403 is...

Yamaha's RX-V475 is a great-sounding 5.1 receiver and a good value, although competitors offer better features and design.

Good Value, Good Sound

 

Even what is considered to be a "lower end" receiver today will likely have more features than you want or need. This Yamaha offering is no exception. I picked this up locally when it was on sale and saved a few bucks. If you are looking for the short...

+ Price! + YPAO at this price level + Great, clean sound + Enough ports and connections for any average HT setup + 3D and 4K video Support + HDMI CEC + ARC + Simple, but with the additional features and capabilities if you need/want them

- No Bluetooth - The use of the "Scenes" can be a little confusing when also using raw inputs without the scenes

"Best sound in class and fantastic value."

 

Even the skewed CNET review says this has best in class sound. That's what is most important to me in an AV receiver. The RX-V475 looks good in my cabinet, so no lost marks for me there. I have my own third party Bluetooth audio receiver to plug in and...

Best sound in class.

I'm struggling here ... a 3.5 mm input on the back would have been nice.

"Best Receiver I've Owned!"

 

Upgrading from an Integera unit i bought back in 07 and paid over $1200 for this is quite the step up.... my old unit only had 1 HDMI in and this has 5 or 6 which is plenty for almost anyone. I got it from Best Buy as the display unit so it didn't come...

Easy Setup

No 3.5mm IR input on the back

"Great value and beautiful sound!"

 

This is my first receiver purchase in 20 years. This receiver replaces an old Denon that had great sound but, of course, it didn't have Airplay to work with my vast iTunes library and a DAC to improve the sound coming from compressed digital audio. I...

Very rich sound and overall great quality

Slight audio click that I hear when I rewind or forward 30 seconds on Tivo

hdmi solve

 

if your hdmi output seems to have died, try this ; power off push and hold the straight button on the reciever (not the remote) ; turn the unit on whilst holding straight button ; use the program left and right keyus to move the screen over till it...

the issue was that the system could not complete a full hdmi dchp handshake or something ; that some part of the setup the source / reciver / or screen thought that what it was playing was copyright protected or some such, so the receiver cut video
