Step up to a Network Receiver with the RX-V477

This versatile 5.1-channel network AV receiver is ready for AirPlay®, music streaming, AV Controller App, Spotify and HTC Connect™. It offers high sound quality, plus 4K Ultra HD pass-through and new Extra Bass function for powerful sound.



4K Ultra HD Pass-through for Super High Resolution Images

This AV receiver provides advanced HDMI features including pass-through of 4K Ultra HD, which is gaining popularity. 4K Ultra HD refers to four times the resolution of a 1080p display. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K Ultra HD data from the source to the monitor for image clarity far beyond present standards.



HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel

3D means the receiver can handle 3D signal data. The Audio Return Channel function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable with no need for an extra optical cable.





HDMI CEC for Easy Operation

Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality*. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, it will turn on and off together with the TV and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. 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.



Discrete Amp Configuration for High Sound Quality

This AV receiver was designed with a strong focus on achieving exceptionally high sound clarity. It employs a discrete amp configuration and a low jitter PLL circuit, which contribute to its excellent audio performance.

 





Network Functions

This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation. You can connect the receiver to a PC to enjoy Internet radio, Pandora, Spotify and operate your system via WebBrowser Control. The AV Controller App (from iTunes® or Google play) lets you control various functions from your iPod, iPhone, iPad® or Android™ phones / tablets.



AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to AV Receiver

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 a Mac® or PC. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. 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.

 

 





Stream Millions of Songs with Spotify Connect

With the Spotify app on your smartphone, you've got instant access to millions of songs. And now you can stream those songs to your Yamaha system by using Spotify Connect. Just hit play to start streaming music. What's more, when you've been listening on your smartphone outside and come inside, the song immediately streams to your AVR—like magic, you enjoy uninterrupted music. You can also personalize playlists and receive phone calls while listening to music.

*The Spotify app and premium account are required. Visit spotify.com for more details.

Try Spotify Premium for free on your Yamaha home entertainment System for 30 days. http://spotify.com/yamaha

 

 





HTC Connect for Wireless Streaming

HTC Connect lets you stream music to your AV receiver wirelessly. You don't need a separate app because HTC Connect is built right into your HTC phone. Simply swiping the HTC phone screen starts music output to the AV receiver, from the HTC device's local music sources or third party music sources.













AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation

This AV receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller app that is downloadable from the iTunes or Google Play to control power on / off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone or Android devices. You can also use in as many as 23* different languages and customize the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available.

*As of spring 2014.




USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front Panel

A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod / iPhone, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod / iPhone 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 music playback functions.



Virtual CINEMA FRONT Provides Virtual 5-channel Surround Sound with High Quality and Resolution

With Virtual CINEMA FRONT, you will enjoy virtual 5-channel surround sound with higher quality and resolution by installing surround speakers at the front. You get more flexibility to arrange your speakers inside the room, along with easy enjoyment of high quality surround sound.

 

 

 

 




Extra Bass Provides Rich Bass Reproduction, Even with Small Speakers

Yamaha’s exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you expect from the speaker size while maintaining good localization and sound balance even with compact front speakers. When a subwoofer is used, it improves the volume of the entire low range of the speaker system, not only the front speakers, but also enhancing the bass from the subwoofer. You'll enjoy video and music with sound that has exceptional power and presence.



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.

 




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 three-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers.

 






DSP Parameter Adjustment for Easy and Detailed Setting

This AV receiver is equipped with a variety of sound programs that utilize Yamaha's original DSP technology. They allow you to easily create sound fields like actual movie theaters or concert halls in your room and enjoy natural stereoscopic sound fields. Now you can use the AV Controller App to adjust DSP parameters to your preference to match the type of music / movie or the mood you want to achieve. There are two modes, basic and advanced, that you can choose according to the type of adjustments you want to do.



Gapless Playback Compatibility Allows Play without Interruption*

Many live and classical albums have no gaps in the music. Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files. This provides playback with no interruptions, the way it was meant to be heard.

* Compatible with WAV, FLAC and ALAC file formats, and input from USB / PC / NAS.



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.




Total Purity Concept for the Finest Sound Quality

The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for many years, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity preamplification, anti-vibration technology and independent pure power supplies. All models have a fully discrete power amplifier that helps to minimize distortion. They also adopt independent pure power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heatsinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure. Independent power supplies for the DACs are designed to further eliminate noise on certain models. Down to every detail, these AV receivers are designed with full emphasis on the highest possible sound quality.




Subwoofer Trim Control 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 Control takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.




SCENE for One-touch Start

Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can reset the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.



ECO Mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20 Percent*

Yamaha's new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20 percent. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu.

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






Selectable Auto Power Down

Auto power down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after two, four, eight or 12 hours.

This receiver has as good a sound quality as some recevers cousting twice as much.
Patrica Reynolds
Once I got the password entered, which was tedious on a very primitive keyboard, I could play the music using my Galaxy S4 Yamaha app very easily.

Even though you can scroll ten screens at a time that is still a heck of a lot of scrolling to do.

This does almost everything that I had hoped with only a few cons, not enough to lose a complete star. Basically, the setup went very easily. Although I have a wireless network I purchased a network extender that had an ethernet port and simply plugged it in behind the rx-v477 and ran the cable. It instantly found my network without a problem. Hooking up the HDMI -- blue ray, cable box, ps3, xbox360, roku, apptv and output to a new Samsung 3D HDTV was as simple a process as typing it was. I also had an old laserdisc and an older VCR and both of those hooked up to the composite inputs without problem. So with eight devices hooked up I began to explore the receiver's capabilities.

The sound fields are very nice and give a believable sound. The Dolby movie modes are particularly crisp as compared to an older receiver I upgraded from with almost a visible surround field if you close your eyes. The hall modes with echo effects seemed as good as any I have heard but are just not for me. However, I did find that the Jazz Hall effect did improve the sound of various music selections. At any point a press of the "straight" button returns you to immediate listening to the sound as the external device presented it to the amp. And if you are real, real, real picky the "direct" button turns the sound straight but also cuts off all other electronics but those related to the sound field itself which the directions say results in a purer sound. I have yet to discern a difference but maybe if your ears are younger than 60+ years you will be awed.

The HDMI supports the ARC or Audio Return Channel protocol in the latest 1.4 HDMI standard.

I'm just using it to play it on an overhead speaker system. So I can't say how it would sound on regular speakers. But using the overhead speakers the sound is very clear and nice. Got it because I wanted some Internet radio functions and Pandora and such. Spotify is also a function on it but I don't plan to pay for that service. I just decided to pay $5 a month for Pandora One. I got a WiFi YWA-10 adapter to connect to our Internet. Sound is clear, sharp...no concerns there. I really had to use the Yamaha app to find good Internet radio stations. Indeed without that app I'd likely have returned the unit. I had to borrow a small monitor with HDMI input just to set up Pandora. Once I got the password entered, which was tedious on a very primitive keyboard, I could play the music using my Galaxy S4 Yamaha app very easily. I can turn the receiver off using the app but could not turn it on..had to do it manually. So now I have FM radio, Internet radio, and the music on my S4, all 16 GB of it, but do miss HD radio as we have an excellent HD station in our town. But I guess only very expensive receivers have HD radio. And many HD stations are online. Overall I'm pleased and have no regrets. The WiFi adapter seems to work reliably so far. Though this morning it had conked out and I had to re-power it and got it working. I'll write back if it keeps disconnecting from our WiFi system.
Overall no regrets, but bear in mind....WITHOUT A MONITOR YOU CANNOT SET UP PANDORA. These companies need to know that many of us don't connect the receiver to a TV/Monitor, just use it for sound. There needs to be a better way to enter a Pandora or Spotify password without a monitor.

Only had this receiver for one week now. This receiver has awesome sound and setup is pretty simple. It has an easy on screen minue and wifi was simple to setup. I like the fack that you can set the max volume and change the way the volume is displayed on the tv screen. It has plenty of power to drive high quality speakers. This receiver has as good a sound quality as some recevers cousting twice as much. It also has a pretty decent app for your phone or pad. Iwould buy this receiver again.

I give the Yamaha 477 receiver 5 stars not because it's the end all be all or holy grail or home theater AVR's. For that, you'll have to dig much deeper into your pocket. I give it 5 stars because so far (had it for one week) it does everything it claims to and does it well. For an entry level AVR at this price, it offers adequate power, 6 HDMI outlets, an ethernet port, air play, the ability to at stream from multiple devices (you can even wake it up from an external device and start playing music without getting up). YPAO will calibrate the audio if you desire. I could take off a star as so far I'm on the fence about YPAO and whether I like it. You can always revert back to original settings or tweak the YPAO settings to your liking. This is my first Yamaha AVR and I was shopping this along with comparable products from Denon, Pioneer etc...I might have gone with the Denon but I have no regrets with the Yamaha. Let's hope it lives up the reputation of Yamaha reliability.

I listen to a lot of music but so far have only listened to a few select tracks (FLAC files and mp3 320 kbps). Watched Need for Speed last night with the family and surround sound effects were great. I'm hooked up to a 5.1 using Pioneer AJ fronts and center with sub and surrounds left from my older Onkyo HTIB.

You can't go wrong with this receiver. If it's on your short list and you're wanting a good AVR in the $350 price range, you should be plenty pleased with this choice.
