The Yamaha YHT-893 Home Theater in a Box: 7-Channel Amplification and the Latest HDMI Technology

Since the 1960's, Yamaha's audio/video electronics engineers have endeavored to produce products and services that satisfy the diverse needs of musicians and audiophiles. Yamaha's products and services are recognized the world over for superior quality in acoustics, design, technology, craftsmanship, and customer service, resulting in a reputation for excellence among musicians, music lovers, and home theater enthusiasts.

A top HTiB system match for Blu-Ray and flat panel displays, the YHT-893 features the high power RX-V467 Yamaha receiver that brings 7-channel amplification along with the latest in HDMI functionality, including 3D-ready support (with firmware upgrade) and Audio Return Channel. This system also offers advanced HD Audio decoding with CINEMA DSP, YPAO, and SCENE technologies for ease-of-use. The YHT-893 also features a high performance 2-Way 7-channel speaker package and a powerful 100W subwoofer.

The RX-V567 features HDMI CEC functionality and 3D capabilities

1080p-Compatible HDMI (4 In/1 Out) with 3D and Audio Return Channel
The Yamaha RX-V567 is 1080p HDMI compatible, with 4 inputs and 1 output, ready to handle all your high-definition sources. And thanks to the latest HDMI technology, the RX-V467 is HDMI 3D-ready with a simple firmware upgrade--making you ready for the next generation of "next generation" content. It also supports an audio return channel, which enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection when you have multiple sources connected to your TV.

HDMI CEC Functionality
One of the channels in an HDMI connection is dedicated to a set of advanced control functions, collectively known as CEC. In Yamaha receivers, CEC functionality allows connected devices to control each other in useful ways. For instance, a single command on a remote control can be used to play a DVD, or to launch other complex activities across multiple devices in a home theater system.

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 with an HDMI cable and viewed at highest quality on high-definition displays. In addition, the analog video signals are deinterlaced from 480i to 480p and are output over an HDMI cable.

The RX-V567 Supports Deep Color (30/36-bit) Transmission
The Yamaha RX-V567 supports the latest HDMI 30- and 36-bit color depths, improved from the 24-bit depth of previous versions. This "Deep Color" allows the rendering of billions of colors for far greater accuracy. Colors are so vivid they seem to jump off the screen, with perfectly smooth tonal transitions and ultra-fine gradations between colors. It also enables many times more shades of gray, for higher contrast ratio.

Three New Volume Controls
The RX-V567 has three new volume features. Volume Trim adjust the volume of every input to normalize your volume across all your connected sources. Initial Volume allows you to tune to a preset volume level every time your receiver is turned on. Max Volume lets you set your own maximum volume, to help prevent "blowing out" smaller speakers (like satellite speakers).

On-Screen Display Makes Navigation Easy
An On-Screen Display is available on the RX-V567, letting you use easy-to-understand menus for selecting and adjusting receiver functions--such as a Speaker Test mode that makes it easy to balance the levels of all speakers, video upconversion selection, and DSP programs. A rotary encoder Input Selector makes source selection quick and easy.

SCENE: A New Level of Operating Ease
Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for DVD Viewing, Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button automatically launches a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, XM Listening, TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browsing and selecting the settings is quickly accomplished by rotating the Input knob and watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for one-time use, or they can replace the original default settings. You can even change the SCENE names for convenience.

YPAO Sound Optimization for Automatic Speaker Setup
Yamaha's YPAO Sound Optimization system analyzes the acoustics of the room and adjusts various speaker parameters to provide optimum sound quality at the listening position--all in less than three minutes. Yamaha's YPAO system uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters, such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers and even the sound pressure level, etc. It does this until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room, and you don't have to adjust a thing. The RX-V567 features the YPAO system that automatically selects the crucial frequency bands for the listening room, and then adjusts the level of the selected bands to create a cohesive sound field in the room.

Audio Delay Compensation Keeps Your Experience On Track
The latest display devices perform complex internal processing, causing time lag in the video signal. It is a small difference, but because the audio arrives first, the viewer may feel that something is not natural. The Audio Delay function for adjusting Lip-Sync matches the audio to the timing of the output of the video on the screen (0-240ms).

Surround Realism

CINEMA DSP Digital for Enhanced Surround Realism
Conventional multi-channel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent sound fields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects ideally located in these separate sound fields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater. The decoding circuitry performs Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround decoding with extreme accuracy, as well as all digital sound field processing.

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.

Large scale surround
in your headphones

SILENT CINEMA makes it possible to hear large-scale surround sound through ordinary headphones! This is a variation of CINEMA DSP technology that Yamaha developed to let you listen in private to movies and other multi-channel sources for hours without listening fatigue. Virtual CINEMA DSP lets you enjoy the effects of CINEMA DSP surround sound without using surround speakers (handy for use in custom installations where some rooms don't have surround speakers). It can be used with the front / center / presence speakers or even with just the two front left and right speakers.

Compressed Music Enhancer Refreshes Your Music
Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3 and WMA. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.

    This was my first surround sound ever (that i've owned/bought) and I could not be happier. My headphones (Sennheiser HD280 Pro's) sound got 3x better with the receiver's amp and DAC (Digital Audio Converter). Along with my audio coming from my Mac Pro via optical or from my PS3 vi HDMI, it is stunning how much better my headphone's quality got. Not to mention the CinemaDSP settings that to my surprise are actually good! Most of those settings on most devices blow. Thats just the headphones!

    The speakers work great. Though i confess i'm not a speaker guru by any stretch, and i know these are *far* from top of the line, they do a great job when playing really loud music (i listen to mostly dark electro, EBM, aggrotech, or industrial) and i always get the feeling of immersion. Also the CinemaDSP settings are fantastic with music and movies alike. Usually i like to keep it on "Direct" mode (pure original signal with 0 post-processing whatsoever) but sometimes if the movies audio is hideous (fire the sound mixer) than i whip out the CinemaDSP. Although, i just watched the "new" Star Wars and the audio actually lacked punch, despite being THX certified (makes you wonder...) so i put on the "Sci-Fi" and viola, it sounded perfect.

    The iPod dock connector works like a charm and i especially love the fact you can use the OSD (on screen display) to navigate your media with your remote OR you can use your remote without the OSD so you dont need your TV on. Of course if you have the OSD off you can manually (fingers on the iPod i mean) find music you want to which is perfect for parties if you don't have a computer or media device plugged in.

    The accessories are very useful.

    The salesman at a large electronics store recommended this system to us. It was not originally on our list, but after researching it and finding a great price through a third party Amazon vendor, we ordered it. The system is solid and well built, was easy to install and sounds great! It was a little more than we wanted to spend, but definitely worth it. Very happy with the purchase.

    My husband is a sound freak. He loves turning up the volume so you feel like you are in a theater. We had a Yamaha 5.1 surround sound for some time, maybe 8 years. We never set the speakers right (mounting them) so 2 of them fell and no longer worked. We started to research and research new systems. Ultimately he wanted a Bose system, I told him 2K for surround sound your crazy!
    So he went right back to Yamaha and we are so glad we did. we purchased on Amazon for 700 (at the time it kept going up and down in price) and we hooked it up on Christmas day and are SO happy we upgrade. Use a nice copper 12 gauge wire and read the instructions for speaker placement suggestions for your room....also do the sound test with the microphone they send with it. It let us know how to make adjustments and now it knows where all the speakers are. When we are playing video games and there is a known "sound" to locate a treasure, if the treasure is on your left, the sound comes out of the left speaker.
    We've had the system now for 3 weeks and couldn't be happier with our Christmas gift to each other!

    Well worth it!

    Bought this to pair with my new LG 47" 3D TV & PS3. Haven't quite figured all of the features, but seems to me to be a decent middle of the road receiver.
    Power isn't as strong as I would have liked & I didn't use the cheap speaker wires that came with it. I had preinstalled 14 gauge wires in the ceiling before sheetrocking :<D.
    7.1 seems to be lacking in the content department & even though this receiver can simulate 7.1, the rear speakers can hardly be heard. I also changed out the subwoofer for an Advent. The Yamaha subwoofer comes with front firing speaker, not to my liking & came with small rubber stick-ons to keep it in place.
    I would strongly suggest that you save a little more money and get the Onkyo 1030W 7.1-Ch. 3D Home Theater System Model HT-S9400 for $999.98 (Bestbuy price), but it's on backorder. I had ordered it from Bestbuy, but they reimbursed me saying it was unavailable until Oct.28th. That came & went and still it's not available :>(.
    I personally would not recommend this HTiB, but then again I am a professional musician and sound is VERY important to me. You can probably find one of these at some stores and I would suggest you go hear it 1st, before buying. Also, there are no speaker mounts on the speakers, so you have to do what I did & drill holes to mount them. The front Left & Right speakers are a decent weight (8 lbs?) & I used 33 lb ceiling mounts for them (then again I was expecting the Onkyo speakers which are much heavier & had already purchased the mounts).
    So do your homework and see/listen to any home audio equipment you buy it!
