Expert review by: Stephen Dawson (

Yamaha RX-V500D


The Yamaha RX-V500D is a competent entry-level home-theatre receiver with network functions, and is the first receiver to include DAB+ digital radio.

Good basic home-theatre performance ; DAB+ digital radio ; Solid network features ; Very good USB audio support

No zone support ; No AM tuner means unsuitable for regional users ; No on-screen display for video tuner

Perhaps I'm being a bit whiny. This is, after all, the only proper home-theatre receiver so far on the Australian market with a DAB+ tuner built in. With good all-round audio performance and a reasonable price, that makes it all worthwhile.
