Yamaha RX-V475 review: A great-sounding receiver, light on features


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.

"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

No problems in a year


Unless you're obsessed with HAVING to have every little bell and whistle that you will never use, this is THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK. I bought it through NEWEGG and it came fast and undamaged.

This receiver has all the options I needed. Plenty of HDMI. It sets itself up extremely easy. Every single function works. I hooked it up via LAN (faster speed than wireless) and it easily recognized my computer. I can access all my folders to listen...

I didn't get it 11/04/2014 when it was on sale WITH a free Polk subwoofer

Great Product for Starters (when priced right)


This is a great beginner system product, but I will definitely upgrade to the 7.1 or 7.2 Yamaha receivers when it is most economically viable. I love the product and would recommend it to anyone looking for a start-up system with a set of random...

I have been waiting ten months to write this review just so that I could prove I have played around with it thoroughly. I purchased this receiver for under $290 (with a coupon) back in June 2013. I believe that is a fantastic price for a starter...

Not having a built in Wi-Fi hookup in a wireless age has been the most inconvenient, but as stated earlier, I solved this with Ethernet over power-line adapters. (about $20 on newegg on-sale) ; Up scaling is a joke. There was absolutely no difference...
