The Yamaha RX-V373 5 Channel Powerful Surround Sound A/V Receiver provides a way to process sound and video for any home theater system. Just hook up your choice of display, video source and speakers and this receiver will tie them all together. It's capable of producing five 100-watt channels of powerful surround sound.
With support for pass-through of ultra high resolution 4k video, the RX-V373 can send the signal data from source to display without any signal loss. This is the standard in digital theaters and while it's not widely available yet for the consumer market, you'll be good to go when it is. Of course, this receiver offers four HDMI inputs - which should be plenty for most modest home theaters. That means you can connect a DVD player, gaming console and still have two left over. It also has an HDMI out so you can connect an additional monitor. These connections carry 3D source material and also support Audio Return Channel to reduce the amount of cables you need to run.
If you have an iPod or iPhone, you'll be able to connect it directly to the USB port on the front panel of the receiver to enjoy stored or streamed media played back through your home theater. Since it's a digital connection, this allows for a clean, clear signal. You can even use the receiver's remote to control music playback on your Apple device. You can also connect a USB flash drive or portable audio player to widen your options.
The RX-V373 employs Yamaha's Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO), which uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for your room, wherever your speakers are placed. The receiver supports decoding for the latest formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
With 192 kHz/24-bit Burr Brown DACs for all channels, superb sound is ensured for all your movies, music and games. Plus, cueing up your entertainment is easy thanks to the multi-language color on-screen display. That's because it has an Eco mode so it uses less power to operate and has an auto-power down mode that also helps to save power.
