Features

Yamaha RX-V779BL can produce up to 95W per channel in stereo mode at 8 ohms or 160W/channel at 4 Ohm of amplification. The video capabilities of the receiver based on the processing of video signals with the second-generation HDMI and HDCP. The RX-V779 can upscale a video to 4K. The receiver based on the modern DACs in all channels (24 bit / 192 kHz) Burr-Brown PCM1789 in the Pure Ground circuit. And therefore RX-V779Bl works well with Hi-Res audio formats with DSD and, Apple Lossless in 96kHz/24bit.

Design and build

The Yamaha RX-V779 is available in two bodies, the full mate black, and a light tone body. On the front panel, there are controls and a display, like most Yamaha receivers. In the design of this receiver there are some interesting features -output transistors, due to the use of thermistors, work in the optimal mode and have symmetrical amplification which positively affects Yamaha RX-V779BL specs. The audio performance increases due to a combination of a built-in amplifier and a low-jitter PLL circuit. In the design also provided anti-vibration radiators to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure.
