Features

The Yamaha RX-V483’s video capabilities allow you to broadcast not only the two currently used standards: HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), but also the promising Dolby Vision format with dynamic metadata. Also in Yamaha RX-V483 specs, it needs to consider the five gain channels with power that varies depending on the frequency (from 80 to 145 watts), but with a stable impedance of 6 Ohm.

Design and build

The look and design are like other Yamahas receivers, with a two-part front panel. The upper part consists of a display hidden under a glossy surface. Below the display there are the control buttons. At the lower part of the front panel are most of the controls, such as an input selector, a headphone input, a USB port, and a large metal volume control knob.

Connectivity

Yamaha’s proprietary MusicCast technology enables multiple audio devices to be networked together. This entire system is controlled using a mobile application. The content source can be not only home network servers but also music stream services on the global web, as well as hundreds of Internet radio stations. The technology is fully compatible with high-resolution audio - FLAC and WAV formats are supported. MusicCast uses both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as a wireless data transfer channel, which greatly expands the range of compatible devices. MusicCast will allow you to create wireless distributed multi-room audio system and Airplay and Wireless Direct will allow users to directly stream audio via mobile gadgets running iOS and Android.

Setup

The RX-V483 model is equipped with a proprietary system for automatic sound calibration for the acoustic features of the YPAO R.S.C.
