Features

This 5.1-channel AV receiver with discrete amplifier circuitry, Bluetooth technology for wireless music streaming, end-to-end transmission of 4K Ultra HD (HDCP2.2 / 4K60p) has 135 W per channel (6 Ohms). Of particular note is the CINEMA FRONT function. It will delight those consumers who have limited space allocated for a home theater. This mode allows you to recreate surround sound using virtual speakers, even if the real 5 speakers are arranged in a row. Even more impressive are the features of the CINEMA DSP mode, in which the surround effect can be achieved using only a classic stereo pair.

Design and build

A full-fledged amplifier built on the basis of discrete components is built into the device, which ensures a qualitative increase in sound power without distortion. To improve the quality of playback of audio files, a proprietary software product - Compressed Music Enhancer, used in the format of streaming signal broadcasting, is also used. Also among the advantages that the Yamaha RX-V379 Black has, one of the most important is the set of built-in decoders (DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio).

Connectivity

The switching arsenal on the rear wall of the receiver body indicates the rigid orientation of the younger model to use the HDMI interface. Audio interfaces are represented by two pairs of RCA connectors, as well as optical and two coaxial digital ports. Of the audio outputs, there is only an RCA connector for connecting a subwoofer.

Setup

The user will also appreciate the possibility of high-precision speaker calibration, which can be performed independently using the built-in YPAO technology.
