Yamaha RX-V585BL Review and Specs

Yamaha RX-V585BL To get rid of wires in the home cinema, at least partially - is a very tempting prospect. This is especially true for connecting rear speakers and a subwoofer. And if in “single-box” solutions and soundbars this problem has long been solved, then full-format systems cannot boast such flexibility. More precisely, they could not until the appearance of the next generation of Yamaha receivers, whose representative with the RX-V585 index appeared in this Yamaha RX-V585BL review, where I analyzed most important Yamaha RX-V585BL specs.

Features

Yamaha RX-V585 AV receiver is the youngest model in the company's production line, equipped with seven amplification channels, which allows implementing the minimum surround sound system configuration for Dolby Atmos and DTS: X 5.2.2 when there are five surround speakers and two active subwoofers are complemented by a pair of “ceiling” speakers. It has 560W output power at 6 Ohms.

Design and build

The receiver is very similar to the model with the RX-V485 index, which stands a notch in the corporate hierarchy. There is a built-in phono stage for heads with a movable magnet, and DAC chip modifications with a better signal to noise ratio are used (Burr Brown PCM5102A instead of PCM5101A in RX-V585). Yamaha remains true to classic amplification - the output stages of all seven channels in the Yamaha RX-V585 are fully discrete, operate in A / B class and are made on complementary pairs of Toshiba A1941 / C5198 transistors.

Connectivity

Like its predecessor, the device is equipped with four input and one HDMI output port. If for any reason you need two HDMI outputs, you should pay attention to the older model of the RX-V685 receiver. This is perhaps its main difference from the RX-V585. In addition, the older receiver has one more optical digital input.

Setup

In addition to the proprietary technology of MusicCast wireless distributed audio systems, it supports the Airplay and Wireless Direct protocols, allowing you to transfer music directly from mobile gadgets running iOS and Android.
