Features

The receiver is equipped with an audio amplifier with a signal transmission circuit -5.1. The rated output power is 100 W per channel at 6 Ohm impedance or 145 W per channel at 8 Ohm impedance. The Yamaha RX-V381 specs have the same surround set-up for movies and music. The CINEMA DSP function with 17 preset modes gives details of sound. Two digital processing modes for emulating surround sound are built-in - for two Virtual CINEMA speakers or five Virtual CINEMA FRONT speakers. The video side allows the receiver to work with 4K videos supported by all modern features like HDR and Dolby Vision.

Design and build

The upper part of the front panel consists of a display hidden under a glass surface. The functional buttons to control the radio tuner are below the display. The lower part of this panel most of the controls and a large volume control knob. Also in this Yamaha RX-V383BL review, you need to consider the internal structure. In the body installed Burr-Brown PCM9211 digital transceiver and PCM5101A 32-bit D/A converters, Toshiba C5198, A1941 and two large Nichicon output transistors, a Cinema DSP from Texas Instruments.

The receiver featured with MusicCast that allows users to connect the RX-V383 to devices in a multiroom network with the support of various streaming services like Pandora, Deezer, Spotify. To exchange data with external devices, the receiver uses Bluetooth and a USB connection.

Setup

An auto-calibration is fast. After connecting the measuring microphone, the device automatically displayed a menu with a start button on the TV screen. Upon completion of calibration, the device reported on the work done.
