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

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

A highly competent AV receiver at its price, loaded with smarts, including built-in Wi-Fi, AirPlay, DLNA and Spotify.

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...
