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.

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...
