POWERFUL HOME THEATER RECEIVER
The RX-V2300 is designed for 6.1 channel home theater systems and features Yamaha's Digital ToP-ART design concept, 192kHz/24-bit DACs for all channels, a 32-bit CINEMA DSP LSI, full surround format compatibility, 26 surround programs with Yamaha's exclusive Quad-Field CINEMA DSP, SILENT CINEMA, a wide-range power amplifier and extensive inputs and outputs for custom installation.
ADVANCED YAMAHA DECODING CIRCUITRY
The decoding circuitry performs Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS Digital Surround, DTS-ES (DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 and DTS-ES Discrete 6.1), and DTS Neo:6 decoding with extreme accuracy, as well as all digital sound field processing.
6-CHANNEL HIGH POWER, DISCRETE AMPLIFIER CONFIGURATION
The RX-V2300 will deliver as much as 110W of power to each of six channels (two main, two rear, one center and one rear center). This is more than enough to fill even the largest rooms with vibrant music and Richter-scale sound effects.
26 DIFFERENT SOUND PROGRAMS YIELDING 46 VARIATIONS
Yamaha's exclusive Tri-Field Cinema DSP imaging for video sound and Digital Sound Field Processing for music delivers the most realistic and dramatic sound possible. The RX-V2300 features 26 different sound programs that provide a total of 46 variations, so every movie and every piece of music will sound right in your home theater.
EXTENDED I/R CODES
Yamaha's provision for extended I/R codes permits completely independent multi-zone operation. The unit also responds to extended I/R codes. This feature also allows for easy programming with a touch panel remote control or home automation system.
DIRECT ACCESS REMOTE UNIT
The RX-V2300's remote control can "learn" the functions of other components, so you can use it as a single remote for the entire system. It has a large memory capacity and comes pre-encoded with many television and component codes.
INLET-TYPE POWER CABLE
The power cable is separate, rather than attached to the unit. It is a thicker type than usual, for higher capacity.
WIDE VIDEO BANDWIDTH
Wide bandwidth is essential to assure sharp video. The receiver's 60 MHz component video bandwidth means that your picture will retain its clarity and sharpness.
+12 VOLT TRIGGER
The unit is equipped with a +12 volt trigger output to activate other components automatically when the receiver is turned on.
Digital ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) is the name Yamaha has given to a design philosophy whose goal is to maximize digital quality while minimizing analog circuitry. The culmination of the best digital engineering and design possible today, it brings together several key elements to create the best-sounding, easiest-to-use A/V components available.
QUAD-FIELD AND TRI-FIELD CINEMA DSP
Yamaha's exclusive Tri-Field Processing which applies Digital Sound Field Processing technology to Dolby Digital and DTS to create a true movie theater experience in the home. And now Yamaha also offers Quad-Field CINEMA DSP. It adds an additional rear center sound field to Tri-Field system, in order to enjoy the new 6.1-channel formats, Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES.
DOLBY SURROUND PRO LOGIC II
This new Dolby format provides 5.1-channel surround from any 2 channel stereo source.
ALL-CHANNEL STEREO DSP
Great for casual listening and parties, Yamaha's 6-channel stereo DSP puts music through all speakers in the system and maintains stereo imaging.
VIRTUAL CINEMA DSP
Provides a realistic multi-channel surround experience using only two speakers.
Building on technology incorporated into its world famous "silent" musical instruments, Yamaha has added HRTF and "Virtual" technology to create a realistic surround movie effect using standard, two-channel headphones.
6-CHANNEL INPUTS FOR EXTERNAL DECODER OR DVD AUDIO PLAYER
The RX-V2300's rear panel has input jacks to accommodate an external 6-channel decoder. The receiver is ready for any other 5.1 channel format, should one be developed.
96 kHz/24-BIT COMPATIBLE
The RX-V2300 is compatible with the 96 kHz/24-bit format of DVD-Audio and will deliver that format in the finest way possible.
Allows you to easily establish, change, and adjust settings from across the room. The on-screen display for composite and S-video gives you a visual readout of the receiver's settings on your TV or monitor screen.
SEVEN DIGITAL INPUTS, TWO DIGITAL OUTPUTS
With seven fully assignable digital inputs (5 optical and 2 coaxial), the RX-V2300 can accommodate digital sources such as DVD, CD, LD, Cable/Sat, D-TV, and MD. Two optical digital outputs assure the finest possible signal leaving the receiver for your other components.
S-VIDEO AND COMPONENT VIDEO INPUTS AND OUTPUTS
The RX-V2300 has six S-video inputs and four S-video outputs. The receiver incorporates two component video inputs and one component video output.
ZONE 2 A/V OUTPUTS SELECTABLE VIA "REC OUT" SELECTOR
Yamaha's familiar Record Out selector, that enables you to record a source while listening to another, can also be used for a second audio zone.
FRONT PANEL A/V INPUTS WITH OPTICAL INPUT
For simple temporary connections, the receiver is equipped with a set of front panel A/V inputs, including a digital input.
SPEAKER A/B SWITCHING
For convenience and versatility, the receiver can switch back and forth between two sets of speakers at the touch of a button.
PRE-OUTS FOR ALL CHANNELS INCLUDING SUBWOOFER
All channels and the subwoofer have pre-out connections. This allows you to add outboard amplification and direct subwoofer connection.
LOW IMPEDANCE DRIVE CAPABILITY AND IMPEDANCE SWITCHING
Yamaha's famed low impedance drive circuitry is included in this receiver so that it can handle virtually all loads and a wide variety of speakers. For further speaker matching, the amplifier can be set for either 4-or 8-ohm speakers.
LINEAR DAMPING FACTOR CIRCUIT
The advantage of full range, 20 to 20,000 Hz, damping is that it improves the definition and resolution of the sound output throughout the audible frequency range.
BASS EXTENSION CONTROL
Accentuates the bass by adding a 6 dB boost at around 60 Hz.
Permits a delayed receiver turn off. You can set it for up to two hours in 30 minute increments.
40-STATION DIRECT ACCESS PRESET TUNING
Up to 40 preset AM and FM stations can be grouped in five groups eight stations. These groupings make it easy for family members to easily access their favorite stations or to have musical genres, such as all the jazz stations, grouped together.
2-WAY BINDING POST SPEAKER TERMINALS
Yamaha's heavy-duty binding post speaker terminals accept banana plugs, spade connectors, and a variety of speaker wire, including heavy gauge cable.
