Yamaha RX-V577 Networking AV Receiver Review


Review: The Yamaha RX-V577 is an HDMI 1.4, 80 watt/ch receiver, designed for digital entertainment with built-in WiFi and Ethernet; native AirPlay, Pandora, Spotify; and extensive networking features.

Great audio performance for the price ; Fast HDMI switching ; Good mobile app ; Support for major streaming services (Pandora, Spotify) ; Solid network performance ; Customizable input naming ; Decent room correction

No video upscaling of any input ; Lackluster and inconsistent user interface ; Video pass-through of UHD/4K content limited to 30fps ; Room correction measurement limited to only a single seat ; YPAO can potentially give false errors

Yamaha RX-V577 AV Receiver Reviewed


Yamaha's 7.2-channel RX-V577 is loaded with features but carries an asking price of just $549.95. Greg Handy digs in to this AV receiver to see what kind of performance you get for your money.

Powerful, clean audio performance; flexible wireless audio streaming; good smartphone app control; tons of connections

Primitive onscreen graphics; Bluetooth not integrated; not the warmest of sounds

Great sound quality, Built-in WiFi, Attractive design, Plenty of features, Great remote app

More HDMI inputs would be good, User interface very basic, No backlight on the remote

Yamaha's RX-V577 7.2-channel AV receiver is a great entry-level receiver that offers a winning combination of features and performance. The design is minimalist but attractive and the front facia won't confuse anyone who is new to multi-channel home...

Obviously the Yamaha RX-V577 is a highly competent AV receiver at its price. The Wi-Fi will benefit many users, and seemed not to compromise network performance at all. It’s loaded with smarts, including internet radio and Spotify, while AirPlay and...

A quality receiver with great features


2 features in particular persuaded me to buy this model: 1) the 2-zone output; 2) the ability to control it from anywhere using a smartphone. There are plenty of features I don't use, or haven't yet used, but what I did need required a minimum of...

plug and play


Bought this as a replacement for an Onkyo receiver that stopped outputting any sound. Super easy to configure, basically automatic with the YPAO mic.
