* Discontinued item DOLBY SURROUND AC-3 READY
The latest home theater technology that utilizes 5 discrete, full-range channels plus a separate subwoofer channel. An AC-3 decoder (like Yamaha's DDP-1) can be added to the RX-V990 to upgrade it to AC-3 reproduction. Dolby Surround AC-3 results in stereo surround effects for an expanded sense of depth, localization and overall realism.
Lets you confirm operation and includes speaker display that makes it easier to balance speaker output in the Speaker Test Mode with a graphic representation of the speakers. You can select each of the DSP programs with one touch on the remote control, allowing you to compare the effects from your listening position.
RECORD OUT SELECTOR
You can listen to one source while you record another.
70MM MOVIE THEATER CINEMA DSP
Multiplies the effects of Dolby Pro-Logic and Yamaha DSP to recreate the movie theater experience in you home. This mode was created based on input from movie sound technicians to reproduce sound images the way the director intended them to be heard.
FRONT PANEL A/V INPUTS
For easy connection of a camcorder or other A/V components.
DUAL CENTER CHANNEL OUTPUTS
For utilizing two center channel speakers for a larger system or with a big screen television.
PRE-MAIN COUPLER AND SUBWOOFER OUT WITH LPF
Lets you add signal processors or larger amplifiers to your system. Also allows for direct subwoofer connection. 200Hz Low Pass Filter ensures best possible subwoofer performance. Makes for greater system flexibility and room for growth.
35MM DOLBY PRO-LOGIC ENHANCED
Another unique Yamaha DSP program that creates the same type of sound you experience in movie theaters with multi-speaker arrays.
10 DSP PROGRAMS
In addition to Yamaha's unique 70mm Movie Theater, TV Theater and Dolby Pro Logic Normal and Enhanced programs, the RX-V990 offers a special sports program and five HiFi DSP programs: Concert Hall, Rock Concert, Stadium, Jazz Club and Church.
YSS-223 LARGE SCALE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT
Yamaha's amazingly powerful, compact LSI provides extremely accurate Dolby Pro-Logic decoding and digital sound field processing.
64 KEY LEARNING REMOTE
Lets you program and control additional components such as a VCR, Laserdisc player, or TV.
5 AUDIO AND 4 A/V (WITH S-VIDEO TERMINALS) INPUTS
This receiver lets you hook up not only five audio components, but four audio/video units as well. You also get S-video terminals. All providing extensive system connectability and room for growth.
LINEAR DAMPING FACTOR CIRCUIT
A linear damping factor of 200 (8 ohms 20 - 20 kHz) means plenty of ability to stop the speaker cone from vibrating when the signal stops. The result is clear crisp pure sound and significantly improved frequency response.
40 STATION RANDOM ACCESS PRESET TUNING
Preset stations can be grouped in five sets of eight, according to AM and FM, or musical genre, or any order you desire.
Switches unit off, after up to two hours of play in :30 increments.
A/B SPEAKER SELECTOR
Allows use of one or both sets of speakers.
BASS EXTENSION CONTROL
It accentuates the base by providing a 7dB boost at around 70 Hz.
TONE BYPASS SWITCH
Allows bypass of bass and treble, to provide a flat frequency response without readjusting the tone controls.
2-WAY BINDING POST SPEAKER TERMINALS
Banana plug compatible on all channels. Permits the use of a variety or speaker wires and connectors.
REMOTE CONTROLLABLE MOTOR-DRIVEN MASTER VOLUME CONTROL
With the aid of the LED indicator, you can see and hear your volume adjustment right from your seat.
