Yamaha RX-V373 is the Start of the New


Yamaha_RX-V373_AV_Receiver.jpgYamaha just unveiled the RX-V373, the 5.1 channel A/V receiver that is the entry point to the company's new RX-V series and boasts major first-time feature upgrades at $299.95 MSRP. Yamaha continues to provide consumers easy access to their content by adding a convenient front panel USB input for direct connectivity to iPods, iPhones and USB drives. Yamaha also adds its proprietary YPAO system that ensures the easy calibration of an audio system to optimize the listening experience. To future-proof consumers, the RX-V373 also provides 4K video pass-through from yet-to-be-introduced source components, which will provide four times the resolution of 1080p to compatible displays. The entry-level unit also offers HDMI (4 in/1 out) with 3D and Audio Return Channel.

The balance of the Yamaha RX-V A/V receiver line - with even more advanced feature sets - will be announced later this month.

The RX-V373's direct digital USB connection to iPods and iPhones provides reportedly superior sound quality. Song titles, as well as system control and setup prompts, are shown on the receiver's on-screen multi-language display that overlays onto HD and 3D video signals. The port will also charge connected iPods and iPhones.

The RX-V373 offers a full complement of HD Audio format decoding, including Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio.

Other notable performance and convenience features of the RX-V373 include:

ECO Mode that reduces the model's power consumption by 20 percent. The model has low power consumption in standby mode and Auto Power Down can be set for 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours;

YPAO system calibration that allegedly ensures more accurate room measurements by confirming the subwoofer is fully responding before making audio adjustments;

A subwoofer level adjustment that enables listeners to increase the bass without disturbing the system's crossover point. The intended result is that vocals and high frequency sounds do not end up "boomy" or "muddy" from being misdirected through the subwoofer;

A High speed HDMI switching function that remembers the settings of all connected sources, eliminating the time it normally takes to adjust to each when they are selected;

Four convenient SCENE Mode buttons that automatically power on the appropriate components and make system adjustments for specific entertainment options.

The Yamaha RX-V373 is now shipping for an MSRP of $299.95.
