POWERFUL HOME THEATER RECEIVER
The HTR-5590 is a full-featured home theater receiver ready for all formats and for custom installation. Major features include 6-channel discrete amplification (100W x6), Yamaha's Digital ToP-ART design concept, Quad-Field CINEMA DSP, 25 surround program, SILENT CINEMA, and learning-capable/present remote control. It delivers high power to six channels and provides DTS ES, Neo 6 and DTS ES Matrix 6.1 decoding as well as Dolby Digital 6.1 and Dolby Pro Logic II decoding.
Digital ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) is the name Yamaha has given to a design philosophy whose goal is to maximize signal purity.
ADVANCED DECODING CIRCUITRY
Yamaha's exclusive YSS-938 32-bit floating point quantization LSI. The decoding circuitry performs Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital Surround, DTS-ES (DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 and DTS-ES Discrete 6.1), and DTS Neo:6 decoding with extreme accuracy.
192kHz/24-BIT DIGITAL-TO-ANALOG CONVERTER SYSTEM
The HTR-5590's vitally important digital-to-analog converters use an extremely high performance 192kHz/24-bit operation type. They perform accurate sound field reproduction for high quality multichannel sources, and for two-channel stereo, provide outstanding separation and precise musical delineation.
DISCRETE POWER TRANSISTORS
Discrete power transistors rather than chips are used in the amplifier section to provide the cleanest sound possible. The amp delivers 100 watts each to six channels.
25 DIFFERENT SOUND PROGRAMS YIELDING 45 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 HTR-5590 features 25 different sound programs that provide a toal of 45 variations, so every movie and every piece of music will sound right in your home theater.
EXTENDED I/R CODES
The unit responds to extended I/R codes.
LEARNING-CAPABLE AND PRESET REMOTE CONTROL UNIT
The HTR-5590's remote control can "learn" the functions of other components, so you can use it as a single remote for the entire system.
ACCURATE TOUCH VOLUME CONTROL
No one expects more from a volume control than up and down-except Yamaha. We decided that controlling the volume could be made easier and more accurate, and the result is the Accurate Touch Volume Control. It lets you make delicate adjustments within a narrow range, yet enables you to move to very high or low levels more quickly with extreme accuracy.
PROCESSOR DIRECT SWITCHING
The HTR-5590 has a Processor Direct Switch that provides a direct signal connection between the processor board and the power amplifier section. This shortens the signal path, feeding the pure, robust signal directly to the out put for cleaner, more efficient operation and higher quality sound.
DOLBY SURROUND PRO LOGIC II
This new Dolby format provides 5.1-channel surround from any stereo source.
ALL-CHANNEL STEREO DSP
Great for casual listening parties, Yamaha's 6-channel stereo DSP puts music through all speakers in the system and maintains stereo imaging.
QUAD-FIELD AND TRI-FIELD CINEMA DSP
Tri-Field CINEMA DSP projects three sound fields into the home theater: a Presence sound field in the front and two Surround sound fields in the left rear and right rear, resulting in a powerfully realistic three-dimensional soundscape.
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.
EXTENSIVE INPUTS AND OUTPUTS
In addition to the wide range of inputs and outputs provided on previous Yamaha receivers, the HTR-5590 also includes a Video Conversion connection (S-Video to Composite, Monitor Out).
96 kHz/24-BIT COMPATIBLE
The HTR-5590 is compatible with the 96 kHz/24-bit format of DVD-Audio and will deliver that format in the finest way possible.
CUSTOM INSTALLATION COMPATIBILITY
As befits a high performance home theater receiver, the HTR-5590 is designed to be suitable for use in custom installations. It has a Zone 2 Selector so the audio signal can be output I a second room.
SEVEN DIGITAL INPUTS, TWO DIGITAL OUTPUTS
With seven digital inputs, six fully assignable digital inputs (4 optical and 2 coaxial), the HTR-5590 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.
REMOTE CONTROL I/O PORTS
For remote control of other components.
S-VIDEO AND COMPONENT VIDEO INPUTS AND OUTPUTS
The HTR-5590 has S-video inputs and two S-video outputs. The receiver incorporates two component video inputs.
FRONT PANEL A/V INPUTS WITH OPTICAL INPUT
For simple temporary connection, the receiver is equipped with a set of front panel A/V inputs, including a digital input and S-Video Terminals.
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.
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 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.
Turn the bass extension switch on to provide +6dB boost to the main speakers' low end centered at 60Hz.
A/B SPEAKER SELECTOR
Allows selecton of either a first set of speakers main speaker or a second -- or both.
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.
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.

Comments about Yamaha htr-5590_black__u:
I've owned this receiver for 12 years, and its still as good as the day I bought it. plenty of power and sounds fantastic! It's been my garage system now for the past few years after upgrading to RX-V3900.
