Yamaha RX-V481 receiver review: Hits the sweet spot between price, features and value

 

This receiver checks most of the must-have feature boxes, and still delivers excellent sound quality for a mid-price receiver.

The Yamaha RX-V481 offers very good audio performance in a relatively affordable bundle. It offers numerous streaming services over Wi-Fi plus the ability to stream to a Bluetooth headphone. HDMI ports support 4K video and HDR sources.

The total of just four HDMI ports means users with more than one gaming console, for example, may need to look elsewhere. Competitors such as Pioneer and Sony are supporting the versatile Google Cast system.

The Yamaha RX-V481 checks most of the must-have feature boxes, and still delivers excellent sound quality for a mid-price receiver.

Superb

So much better than expected.

 

After helpful and realistic advice I bought the Yamaha RN803D. This was easy to set up and does so much more than I expected - in particular the large number of presets and the fact that the Mobile App makes choosing an Internet radio station so...
