Yamaha's free downloadable iPhone app, that is compatible with the RX-V871 and other select receiver models in the company's lines, controls an A/V system's basic functionality, including connected sources, network content navigation and zone choice functions. A similar Android-based app will be available in the fall.

The 7.1 channel RX-V871 (110 W per channel, 8 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9% THD, 2 ch. driven) features HD Audio decoding with Yamaha's proprietary CINEMA DSP 3D technology.

The RX-V871 network A/V receiver is both DLNA 1.5 and Windows 7 certified, providing users full access to free and paid network music streaming services such as Internet radio, Rhapsody, SiriusXM Internet Radio, Pandora, Napster, as well as audio content located on DLNA supported networked computers or storage drives.

The RX-V871's front panel USB iPod/iPhone input provides consumers with a direct digital connection of their iPhone/iPod content by using the standard 30-pin iPod dock connector to USB cable connection. Users can then control and play audio content from these devices with the supplied remote, with song titles, cover art and playback information appearing on the receiver's on-screen menu.

The RX-V871 is 3D-capable, and features Audio Return Channel (ARC) and 1080p HDMI compatible inputs with HD Audio decoding of Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio content. Eco-friendly, the RX-V871 provides the industry's lowest standby power consumption.

A multi-language Graphic User Interface (GUI) with album art makes navigation of all menus easy and intuitive. Eye-catching graphics can be overlaid on HD and 3D video signals, providing access to navigational icons and setup items, control over internal sources, as well as connected iPhone/iPod devices.

The RX-V871 boasts 8 in/2 out HDMI (3D and ARC compatibility), 1080p upscaling and has assignable amplifiers for bi-amp and Zone 2 capabilities.

The Yamaha RX-V871 is now shipping for an MSRP of $899.95.
