Yamaha RX-V479 review: Yamaha's bargain receiver steps up to multiroom music

 

For its rather modest price, the Yamaha RX-V479 delivers superb sound quality and a long list of must-have features, including the ability to stream music to different rooms.

The Yamaha RX-479 offers plenty of features, great connectivity and produces some of the best sound we've heard for the money. The MusicCast system delivers easy streaming throughout the house and is available on many Yamaha products.

You'll need to purchase more Yamaha products to utilize the proprietary MusicCast streaming audio in additional rooms. The receiver has only five channels and is not compatible with Dolby Atmos.

The Yamaha RX-V479 delivers superb sound quality and a long list of must-have features, making it our favorite receiver in this price range.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

easy setup, plays about everything

 

I have it hooked up to my small paradigm 5.1 speakers. it rocks! surround is great and also plays about anything on network. I have it hooked to PC media, net radio and pandora. rock on!

Does what it supposed to, decent price

Sometimes I have to switch off or switch input cause sound cuts off when switching cable box from tv to dvr or changing tv inputs, could be my old comcast box. Cant program any other component to the remote, now in search of new remote to replace four.

Still working on integrating the remote so that I don't need so many

Equipment does what I expected, but setting up bluetooth network thru my sound bar and mp3 player was harder I thought it would be.

Hard to go wrong

 

I replaced a HTR 5960 which had finally given up the ghost following a severe lightning storm - yes it had surge protection, but they can only do so much.

Excellent

 

L'avantage énorme est de pouvoir le contrôler à distance via AirPlay. L'application MusicCast importe toute votre musique contenue dans votre iPhone, très bien fait. Elle vous permet de choisir quels hauts-parleurs vous désirez activer s'ils sont...

I would buy this AV Receiver again

 

This is my second Yamaha receiver, the first one was a high end and served 15 years. I was looking for a receiver that had both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and something to drive my 5 floor speakers and a self powered sub. I have had this receiver...
