Product Specifications

The HTR-5540 is a powerful and versatile receiver, delivering 75 watts to each channel. The receiver provides plenty of processing and a host of Yamaha features. With powerful and varied sound processing, the HTR-5540 provides Dolby Digital, Dolby ProLogic II, and DTS Digital Surround decoding. Yamaha's Quad-Field CINEMA DSP allows enjoyment of Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 sound formats in the Phantom mode (using 5.1 channels). The HTR-5540 provides 21 surround programs and offers a total of 41 surround environment variations. Yamaha's proprietary ASIC LSI, the 32-bit YSS-938, assures top quality audio performance. The HTR-5540 has two audio-only inputs and one audio-only output. It provides 1 optical and 1 coaxial digital input including the audio portion of A/V source inputs. When a source is selected, the receiver automatically chooses the best quality input connected - digital audio rather than analog audio, etc. It also makes the same automatic selection for decoding, down the hierarchy from discrete multi-channel, to matrix, and then stereo. Building on technology incorporated into its world famous "silent" musical instruments, Yamaha has added HRTF and "Virtual" technology to create a realistic surround movie effect using standard, two-channel headphones. The HTR-5540's rear panel has input jacks to accommodate an external decoder making it ready for any other 5.1 multi-channel format, should one be developed. Yamaha's famed low impedance drive circuitry is included in this receiver so that it can handle virtually all loads and a wide variety of speakers. For further speaker matching, the amplifier can set for either 4- or 8-ohm speakers. Provides a subwoofer pre-out so that the low frequency signals can go directly to your powered subwoofer. The advantage of full range, 20 to 20, 000 Hz, damping is that it improves the definition and resolution of the sound output throughout the audible frequency range. For easy operation, the HTR-5540 comes with Yamaha's remote control featuring built-in preset codes to control other audio or video components. Permits a delayed receiver turn off. It can be set for up to two hours in 30 minute increments. Up to 40 preset AM and FM stations can be grouped in five groups eight stations. These groupings make it easy for family members to easily access their favorite stations or to have musical genres, such as all the jazz stations, grouped together.
