Yamaha RX-V485 review

With a weight of 7.8 kg and a 5.1-channel amplifier on board, it can provide power when loading one channel at 165 W (at 8 Ohms) or 115 W (6 Ohms). YPAO (Yamaha Parametric room Acoustic Optimizer) analyzes the acoustics of the room and the used audio system, and then fine-tune various sound parameters to provide the best sound for a particular room. The receiver is equipped with 384 kHz / 32-bit premium DACs - also with independent power supplies - for reproducing without noise absolutely all audio signals from high-resolution sources.
