Why You Get the Best Video
1080p-Compatible HDMI (4 In/1 Out)
| | Video upconversion and downconversion
means you can play any format in any mode
This new receiver provides HDMI (4 in/1 out), with support for 1080p resolution. Customers can connect multiple HDMI sources and enjoy the highest possible video quality when using a 1080p monitor. The HTR-6280 is also capable of repeating 1080p/24fps signals from HDMI input to output, maintaining the high image quality from Blu-ray Disc players and HDTV Set Top Boxes. HDMI Digital Signal Upscaling and Deinterlacing
This is a function that upscales analog composite and component 480i or 480p signals to 1080i/720p HD signals or even 1080p Full HD signals so they can be output digitally from an HDMI terminal and viewed at highest quality on high-definition displays. In addition, the analog video signals deinterlaced from 480i to 480p are output at the HDMI terminal. Flexible Video Upconversion: Convert to Higher Quality HDMI
This is a function that converts signals from composite and component terminals to higher quality HDMI, as shown to the right. This ensures the highest possible picture quality from the HTR-6280 to a monitor or TV via a single cable. It also performs downconversion among component and composite signals.
Why You Get the Best Sound
HD Audio Format Decoding
| | CINEMA DSP 3D envelops you in the sound field
The new Yamaha HTR-6280 Receiver delivers the rich, dynamic surround sound that Blu-ray Disc players can output by decoding the two HD lossless audio formats: Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Digital ToP-ART and High Current Amplification
Digital ToP-ART is a comprehensive design philosophy that strategically utilizes high quality parts, circuit designs and technologies to most effectively maximize sound quality. The interior layout isolates the digital, analog and video sections to eliminate interference and shorten signal routes. High Current Amplification optimizes performance by achieving high current power with low impedance. The HTR-6280 also offers discrete amplification circuitry. CINEMA DSP 3D
This is an upgraded version of CINEMA DSP that uses the two presence speakers in the 7-channel configuration to give the sound field an enhanced vertical dimension. HiFi DSP programs sound more natural, closer to the feeling of being in a concert hall with a high ceiling or a club where the sound seems to bounce up from the floor. CINEMA DSP programs have a greater feeling of height that gives sounds coming from above, such as a helicopter, more precise localization. Enhanced Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
Yamaha's Adaptive DRC technology automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume that is selected. Adaptive DRC refines the dynamic range parameters to make low volume sounds easier to hear (narrower dynamic range) while retaining the massiveness felt during high volume (wider dynamic range). And because our ears lose sensitivity to low and high sounds as volume decreases, it continually adjusts these frequency ranges according to the volume and to the input signal level. YPAO Sound Optimization
This automatic sound optimization system analyzes the acoustics of the room and measures seven speaker characteristics, then calibrates various audio parameters to achieve the optimum sound at the listening position. The process takes only a few minutes.
The Yamaha HTR-6280 Brings More to the Table with Advanced Features
New SCENE Buttons (BD/DVD, TV, CD, and Radio) and SCENE Linkage
| | Select Media (left) and iPod music playback (right)
| | Default settings for New SCENE Buttons
The HTR-6280 has a new SCENE function that allows you to change input sources and sound field programs with one button. Four scenes are available for different usages, such as playing movies or music. You can also operate an external component with the receiver remote control by setting a remote code for the external component for each input source (SCENE Linkage). Setting remote codes for desired input sources allows you to switch between external components linked to SCENE selections. Easy to Use GUI Keeps You in Control
The on-screen GUI (Graphical User Interface) makes operating the HTR-6280 extremely easy. Each menu item has an icon in addition to the title, for easier identification, and album art will be displayed. Using the cursor on the remote, it is easy to make various selections, such as Setup, which then leads to other options, such as video adjustments. Each can be quickly selected and adjusted, and other operations, such as the Play control for all sources are also fast. After getting the feel of the remote, everyone will find this GUI a pleasure to use.
Expanded Radio Enjoyment HD Radio Tuner Built In
HD Radio offers crystal-clear sound via existing AM/FM bands. It also provides program data and the ability to tune to multiple programs at the same dial position. The HTR-6280 will display HD Radio information on the front panel and on the TV screen. XM/SIRIUS Satellite Radio Ready
This model is XM Satellite Radio Ready, and are also capable of receiving XM Satellite Radio with XM HD Surround powered by Neural Surround. To get XM Satellite Radio, the XM Mini-Tuner and Home Dock including the home antenna are required. This model is also ready to receive SIRIUS Satellite Radio. Listen to Content on Portable Devices Via USB
If you have music stored on USB sticks or USB portable audio players, you can plug them into the USB port and select them via the remote control. This is also an easy way for friends to share their music with you.
