This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means they can accept wireless music streaming from iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on Macs or PCs.

You can use view metadata such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via AV receiver's on-screen display. *Some models don't support album art display.








HDMI CEC for Easy Operation

CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver’s remote unit to control player functions like Skip and Stop.

*All connected devices must be HDMI CEC compatible. Some CEC compatible TVs/players may not work.




YPAO Sound Optimization for Automatic Speaker Setup

YPAO analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system.

USB Digital Connection for iPod, iPhone and iPad on the Front Panel

A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone/iPad is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver’s remote control unit to operate the iPod/iPhone/iPad music playback functions.




Yamaha RX-V473 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver

SCENE for One-Touch Start

HD Audio with CINEMA DSP 3D and Virtual Presence Speaker

CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers.











Input Selection in HDMI Standby Through Mode

When the AV receiver is in HDMI Standby Through mode, the input source (Blu-ray™ Disc player, game console, etc.) for viewing on the monitor can be changed via the remote control. There’s no need to turn on the AV receiver in order to switch sources.













Yamaha RX-V473 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver

Subwoofer Trim for Improved Sound Imaging

The Subwoofer Trim control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is “pushed” toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.




Yamaha RX-V473 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver

Compressed Music Enhancer

When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.





Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)

Adaptive DRC automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume level. This ensures that you hear clear dialogue and vocals, and all sound effects at comfortable levels. There is no need to adjust the volume level as you listen; everything from whispers to big explosions will be heard clearly and comfortably at the same volume setting. It also tones down loud TV commercials, and is ideal for low-volume, late-night listening, when you do not want to disturb others.

* Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).

Selectable Auto Power Down

I bought this to replace my aged Yamaha RX-V795 receiver that was about 13 years old. I was looking for something that supported the latest HDMI and was network capable. My home theater is pretty simple: Panasonic Plasma TV, TiVo, Blu-ray, Receiver. I initially purchased an Onkyo TX-NR515 as it had more features and around the same price. However, the Onkyo TX-NR515 had issues with HDMI: The video would freeze, scale incorrectly, or have no picture at all. In addition, the Onkyo's software had an overall buggy felling (like it was still in beta). So the Onkyo was returned and I started some more research.
From the research, I filtered down my choices to the Denon AVR-1713, Pioneer VSX-822K/1022K, and the Yamaha RX-V473.

As part of my research, I demoed the available iOS AV control apps. Pioneer has a sweet AV control app, but this app is only for the higher end models. There is a simpler app for the VSX 822/1022 which is not nearly as nice. Also, Pioneer seems to drop support for their models quickly as the app for the 2011 models is different than the app for the 2012 models. Denon and Yamaha seem to have better support as the older receiver models are supported by their latest AV control app. Both apps are nice, But the Yamaha app seems a little more polished. Also, Denon's app is an iPhone app, whereas the Yamaha app is made both for iPhone and iPad. In addition, Yamaha's app gets the highest marks in iTunes. Since I did not like the Pioneer 822/1022 AV control app, this left the Denon and Yamaha as the last contenders for my purchase.
It was a tough call between the Denon AVR-1713 and the Yamaha RX-V473.

Style Name: Receiver
Here's my "two-cents worth":

[The HTR-4065, by the way, is just a different name for the same equipment - the only difference is the lettering on the face is white, rather than black. They did this for licensing to sell the unit through big-box stores rather than their regular retailers. They are made in the same factory, with the same components.]

For a middle of the road, consumer product line, this AV Receiver has most all of the latest features I might want in a 5.1 system. There are things I didn't even know I wanted, but absolutely love using, including the Network connectivity for Apple Air Play, firmware updates, and streaming radio and podcasts [though not high-quality streaming]. The unit lets you set your sub-woofer crossover level internally, providing better control over the speakers. The front USB works great with my iPod and even the compression decoding is done by the unit, rather than by the iPod, and actually does sound better. This unit is solidly built. It was complicated to learn all the settings, but after a couple of days, I've got it down. Runs a lot cooler than my 15-year-old unit downstairs.

The sound quality is the most important issue, and I believe that with my new Polk speakers, this unit has nice range, maintains warmth, and I can't detect any noise in the quiet parts. I am most interested in quality of music playback, including a lot of vocal and acoustic - the whole range from rock, to classical, is full and accurate. As for movies, I've only watched a couple, one BD and one streaming, but both were rich sounding, with nice separation and imaging. I enjoy the audio return from my HDMI connected TV. The ability to play my highest bit-rate music files from my computer makes my entire collection immediately available to play.

Style Name: Receiver Verified Purchase
I just received this Network receiver on Friday of last week 5/25/2012 and so far I am very impressed. I have my xbox, ps3, macbook pro and cable box all in hdmi in and my wii is hooked up composite and I still have plenty of room to connect more devices if I need to. I have my receiver hdmi out to my TV and am using Klipsch HD 500 Compact 5.1 Home Theater System (Set of Six, Black) with it. All I can say is WOW, I can't believe how amazing it sounds. I read a ton of reviews on Yamaha receivers and the speakers I am using, and to me, many people downplayed how powerful that combo is. I live in an apartment and my neighbors must hate me now. The receiver is quite easy to setup and use, and believe it or not hasn't produced a lot of heat as I have it in my enclosed entertainment center but I do leave the sliding glass door open just in case. I stream my music from my iPhone siriusXM app via airplay and it works very well, there is very little delay. I was very happy to see I can also control the volume from my iPhone also. Airplay was one feature that I though I wouldn't use that much, but find my self using it everyday so far. I spent many days and many hours reading about network AV receivers over the last several months, and I am glad I did. I am writing this to help anyone struggling to make the same decision I had to make. I use the device listed below to hook this receiver up to my wifi, so if you get this receiver grab the netgear adapter with it.
