About Yamaha YHT-4910U

The Yamaha YHT-4910U 5.1-Channel Home Theater System features discrete amplifier circuit design, while Virtual CINEMA FRONT and Extra Bass enhance the overall capabilities and performance of the system. A compact, high-gloss black 5-channel speaker package and a powerful 100 W powered subwoofer are perfectly matched and work seamlessly to provide an exciting home theater experience.

4K Ultra HD Pass-through for Super High Resolution Images
This AV receiver provides advanced HDMI features including pass-through of 4K Ultra HD, which is gaining popularity. 4K Ultra HD refers to four times the resolution of a 1080p display. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K Ultra HD data from the source to the monitor for image clarity far beyond present standards.

HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel
3D means the receiver can handle 3D signal data. The Audio Return Channel function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable with no need for an extra optical cable.

HDMI CEC for Easy Operation
Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, it will turn on and off together with the TV and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver's remote unit to control player functions like skip and stop.

Discrete Amp Configuration for High Sound Quality
This AV receiver was designed with a strong focus on achieving exceptionally high sound clarity. It employs a discrete amp configuration and a low jitter PLL circuit, which contribute to its excellent audio performance.

USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front Panel
A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod / iPhone, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod / iPhone is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver's remote control unit to operate the iPod / iPhone music playback functions.

Virtual CINEMA FRONT Provides Virtual 5-channel Surround Sound with High Quality and Resolution
With Virtual CINEMA FRONT, you will enjoy virtual 5-channel surround sound with higher quality and resolution by installing surround speakers at the front. You get more flexibility to arrange your speakers inside the room, along with easy enjoyment of high quality surround sound.

Extra Bass Provides Rich Bass Reproduction, Even with Small Speakers
Yamaha's exclusive low-range enhancement technology delivers richer bass than you expect from the speaker size while maintaining good localization and sound balance even with compact front speakers. When a subwoofer is used, it improves the volume of the entire low range of the speaker system, not only the front speakers, but also enhancing the bass from the subwoofer. You'll enjoy video and music with sound that has exceptional power and presence.

YPAO Sound Optimization for Automatic Speaker Set Up
YPAO analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes. It's like having a professional installer calibrate your system.

HD Audio with CINEMA DSP
Yamaha's exclusive CINEMA DSP technology supports playback of HD Audio (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, etc.), providing natural and expansive sound imaging.

Compressed Music Enhancer
When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.

Subwoofer Trim Control for Improved Sound Imaging
The Subwoofer Trim Control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is "pushed" toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim Control takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.

SCENE for One-touch Start
Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can reset the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.

ECO Mode Lowers Power Consumption by 20 Percent
Yamaha's new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20 percent. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu.

Selectable Auto Power Down
Auto power down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after two, four, eight or 12 hours.

Connection for the Optional YBA-11 Bluetooth Wireless Adapter
Stream music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-capable Smartphone, tablet or PC using the (optional) YBA-11 Bluetooth wireless technology adapter. The AV receiver included in this package provides a DC output to power this optional accessory.

Good Product


from New Jersey

Sound quality was good, easy to setup. Very Good Product worth for buying. Don't think any thing just go and buy and enjoy the sound quality.


Impressive well balanced sound


from DC  -  Practical

Use in medium/large family room. Really enjoy the surround sound effects and the solid bass.


Great Amplifier - Good Value


from Charlotte NC  -  Movie Enthusiast

Yahmaha built a great amplifer and priced it right! I installed the Yahmaha amp & base and have enjoyed clear, distinctvely separated sounds for 2 months now. Decided to use my own 5 speakers (better quality) for the center and two L & R placements, but am using the Base speaker provided with this package. The total separation of sounds still amazes me! Example: 1) Football game announcer's voice comes from the center of the TV while I hear the crowd chattering from behind me on the back speakers. 2) Music - I hear drums on the left, piano from the center, and then flute on the right. Awesome!


Great Product


from NYC  -  Movie Enthusiast

I use it everyday to hear the radio or stream music or movies using Chromecast. Only CON I have is that the HDMI input DO NOT work with RGB or AVI outputs. It has no digital to analog converter.It's why I purchased it so I was very disappointing when this feature didn't work.

Excellent AV Home Theater System


from Alvin, TX

The AV Home Theater System is excellent for all my purposes, such as watching movies and listening to music through the FM Tuner or iPhone. The speaker reproduction is excellent. Adequate inputs are provided for all my devices. The installation and setup was very easy.


Great for the price


from Wyoming

I use this product in my medium living room and love it. The bass that comes off the system is clean and powerful. The speaker are about the best you can get for the price. The sounds that come out the speakers are clear with no distortion even at high volume levels. I truly recommend this product for someone who is on a budget, you get great quality out of this product.

Bundle Done Well...


from Florida

Great Starter Bundle System for anyone wanting to step into true surround/hi fidelity products. I by no means considered myself an audiophile. But I do know good sound when I hear it. Subwoofer is a straight beast, even on the lower settings. Speakers due their job with no hesitation, and the YPAO calibration makes a world of difference. I use a XboxONE, Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U, and a Cable DVR all hooked into it. The receiver will output any config or codec any of the devices spit out. Makes gaming and movie watching even more immersive. My ONLY gripe about the system is the lack of what I deem to be "standard" features like Bluetooth and Network Connectivity. The Bluetooth issue was solved with the YBA-11 adapter, which could have thrown in the bundle or even rebated, in my opinion. The adapter works flawlessly and is even powered by the receiver itself. And the sound is incredible from any source, particularly if it is APTx enabled. The Networking is not such as big deal as every device connected to has the capability and then some. Besides that, the settings are plentiful and expansive, you could spend hours tweaking the system to your preference. I will definitely upgrade to another Yamaha receiver when video games feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack and Yamaha receivers support it.




from New York

The sound is amazingly clear and fills the room with real life feelings. The quality of the product is outstanding and for the price it beats anything I ever had before. You won't be sorry with this one.
