Yamaha RX-V2700 Receiver Review


The Yamaha RX-V2700 AV Receiver boasts HDMI 1.2a to decode high res audio like DVD-A and SACD. It does all of your video upconversion and more. The RX-V2700 provides features and sound quality.

Packed with more features than any receiver in its class ; Excellent amplifier performance and fidelity ; HDMI ver. 1.2a for DVD-A/SACD ; PCM audio decoding from re-encoded DD+, TrueHD, dts-HD soundtracks via HDMI ; Scaling up to 1080i and 1080p pass thru

Average HDMI Scalar performance ; Erroneous HDMI operation (see notes in review) ; Some minor bass management anomalies (see notes in review) ; YPAO still not at level of some competitor systems ; A bit overwhelming to setup

Yamaha RX-V2700 7.1 A/V Receiver


Over the years, I have reviewed a number of Yamaha's mid-range receivers and have always liked their design and the value they offered. However, I was curious about what stepping up to a more expensive Yamaha model would yield, so I was very excited to...

Yamaha RX-V2700 A/V Receiver


Yamaha launches itself to the front of the convergent media pack with its new all-in-one receiver unit.

You also use the GUI and remote to browse and select the contents of a docked iPod, a flash drive plugged into the front USB port, audio from shared folders on a networked PC (via Microsoft's Windows Media Connect 2.0), and podcasts and Internet radio...

Yamaha RX-V361 Review and Prices


In the world of inexpensive A/V receivers, the Yamaha RX-V361 is everything an entry-level AV receiver should be and then some. A total of 500 total watts (into five channels), Dolby Digital and DTS decoders built in, and component switching at this...

Plenty of power, MP3 Player compatible, great value

no HDMI or on-screen display, spring clip speaker terminals for center and surrounds, only 5-channel surround

Yamaha RX-V2700


It all started poorly when I removed the Yamaha RX-V2700 from its box. The first thing I was greeted with was a whopping, tacky-looking sticker adorning the front panel of the receiver. While the sticker highlights the Yamaha's 1080p and HDMI...

The Yamaha RX-V2700 is a bit like having a girlfriend who's a superb cook but has an ugly face. The good thing about owning the 2700 is that it's much easier to hide the receiver down the back of the room on your stereo rack than asking your girlfriend...

Yamaha RX-V2700 Receiver Review


We test Yamaha's current high end receiver which seems to offer every connection possible, but is it future proof?

Excellent audio quality and amplifier power ; Ethernet & USB connections ; Price ; Build Quality ; Feature packed ; Good quality video processing ; Accepts PCM multi channel sound from your HD player via HDMI 1.2a ; Connectivity

No 1080p scaling, you have to force 1080/24 in pass-though ; Remote control is too busy and complicated to use ; YPAO EQ is not as accurate as other systems available

Yamaha 7.1 Channel HTR6060 Digital Home Theater Receiver - Black


The micro-phone will automatically adjust the levels for your speakers. Another pro would be the ease of swicting media and devices

Needs one more HDMI. The YDS10 does not display the Album Art or videos.

Product Specifications

Yamaha, the innovator in home theater and digital audio and video reproduction, presents the mid-class 7.1 channel A/V digital home theater receiver, the RX-V2700, which provides consumers with an unprecedented number of entertainment options. The RX-V2700 features an Ethernet connection, enabling consumers to access Internet radio stations, music files stored on a PC, and the company's premier MusicCAST audio system server (MCX-2000). The model is compatible with the Apple iPod, via an optional docking station, and allows playback of XM Satellite Radio's standard and XM HD Surround content. With its network connection, the RX-V2700 enables users to enjoy the extensive number of Internet radio stations available, as well as music files stored on a PC, via a superior sounding home entertainment system. The RX-V2700 can also act as a client to Yamaha's premier MusicCAST system, making it possible to access as many as 40.000 songs (in MP3 format) stored on that system's MCX-2000 server. Streamed content information from PCs and the MusicCAST system can be displayed on an entertainment system's monitor, and system operation navigated with a consumer-friendly graphical user interface (GUI). The RX-V2700 employs the Digital ToP-ART concept and High Current Amplification to maximize sound quality. Custom-made 18000uF block capacitors, low-jitter PLL circuitry, Burr-Brown 192kHz/24bit DACs and Schottky barrier diodes are examples of the top quality parts used in RX-V2700. Pure Direct mode on this model can be activated to prevent unnecessary noise interference from internal components, including display circuitry, when pure sound listening is required. The RX-2700 is capable of HDMI 1080p signal pass through and up-converting analog composite, S-video and component signals to HDMI output, with a time base corrector (TBC) that stabilizes the video signal. It employs the Oplus de-interlacer to convert 480i to 480p. The RX-V2700 also can upscale to HD resolution of 720p/1080i by utilizing Anchor Bay Technology's ABT1010 video scaling chip. The RX-V2700 offers flexible system configuration options, as the 7.1 channels can be used to create an immersive surround sound environment in a single room, or the seven internal power amplifiers can be allocated for main room, zone 2 and zone 3 in various applications. Thanks to this Intelligent AMP feature, users are able to enjoy the full 7.1 channel system in the main room when zone 2 and 3 are powered off. When zone 2 and 3 are on, the main system automatically adjusts to a 5.1 or 3.1 channel system. Front panel Zone control buttons, Zone2/3 tone control, a dedicated Zone remote and RS-232C interface allow both receivers to be easily integrated into custom installations. The RX-V2700 also offers Zone2/3 balance adjustment. This model connects easily to most Apple iPods via an optional iPod docking station. Once docked, the iPod can be operated (song selection, play, etc.) via the receivers' remote controls. A one-cable connection allows users to view the iPod's video, pictures and operating status (song title, artist, etc.) on a television monitor. In addition, docked iPods are automatically charged so they are ready to be taken on the go at all times. The RX-V2700 also provides a front panel USB port to for quick and easy connections of other portable audio devices. Yamaha's proprietary Compressed Music Enhancer technology compensates for the lost detail of compressed audio, such as MP3 audio files, providing these files with a more natural recreation of the original music performance when experienced through home speakers. Playback of XM HD Surround from XM Satellite Radio, which delivers audio programming in full 5.1 channel surround sound (XM Ch. 76 and 113), as well as content from the company's 160-plus standard service channels, is achieved via an optional service subscription and XM Passport antenna. Neural Surround technology enhances the experience of XM HD Surround, delivering a detailed sound stage with superior 5.1 channel separation. The Yamaha Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO) has been improved to perform down to 31.5Hz from the previous 63Hz, allowing it to work with a system's subwoofer to create a sharper bass image. This proprietary technology simplifies the home theater setup process by automatically analyzing room acoustics and setting parameters for optimum sound quality at the touch of a button. Yamaha has upgraded the Cinema DSP programs for the RX-V2700. New 'Action' and 'Role-playing' game programs deliver dynamic sound when used with the latest video game consoles.
