5 CHANNEL HOME THEATER RECEIVER*
Provides Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 channel decoding, Yamaha's Tri-Field Cinema DSP and Digital Sound Field Processing. Dolby Digital & DTS deliver discrete surround enjoyment on DVDs and laserdiscs - DTS offers discrete 5.1-channel surround on music CDs, too. Yamaha's proprietary surround processing technologies add depth and excitement to all kinds of audio and video programs.
DISCRETE 6-CHANNEL LINE INPUT
High quality performance today and ready for tomorrow. The RX-V496 can easily accept the decoded output from any 5.1 channel surround system, whether it's MPEG-2, the new DVD Audio, or a system not yet developed.
DISCRETE POWER TRANSISTORS
Discrete power transistors rather than IC chips are used in the amplifier section to provide the cleanest sound possible. The amp delivers 70 watts to each of its five channels.
ACCLAIMED YAMAHA IC CHIPS*
Yamaha's acclaimed YSS-918 chip provides Dolby Digital and DTS with full channel separation and no front-to-back bleedthrough. In addition the chip creates Yamaha's Music and Cinema DSP and Tri-Field Processing modes.
23 SURROUND MODES INCLUDING MUSIC, CINEMA, & TRI-FIELD DSP PROGRAMS*
Yamaha's exclusive Digital Sound Field Processing for music recreates the acoustic personalities of actual concert halls and other venues. Cinema DSP multiplies the effects of Dolby Pro Logic & Yamaha DSP to provide the best possible Pro Logic movie theater recreation in your home. Tri-Field Processing DSP does the same for Dolby Digital & DTS. The RX-V496's surround modes include 20 movie & entertainment modes and 3 modes specifically designed for music.
CONVENIENT SET MENU
The RX-V496 also provides ways to customize many of these sound field settings for your particular room. Specific aspects of a sound field, such as center delay time, speaker size, and others can be adjusted, displayed on the front panel and set so they're always there in a given mode.
NEW THIN PROFILE UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROL
The new thin profile remote control keypad is ergonomically designed for easy access to the most often used features, functions and operations. It can operate Yamaha A/V components and has pre-set codes for popular brands of TVs, VCRs, DVD players and cable/DBS boxes.
FOUR AUDIO/VIDEO AND THREE AUDIO INPUTS
The RX-V496 is a versatile receiver incorporating 4-sets of audio/video inputs, (including 2 S-Video inputs), and 3 pairs of audio-only inputs.
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 receiver's back-panel switches can be set for either high or low-impedance main speakers and either high or low impedance center and surround 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.
Separate subwoofer output with a 90 Hz low pass filter is especially convenient with sub/satellite speaker systems.
A/B SPEAKER SELECTOR
Allows selection of either a first set of speakers or a second -- or both.
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.
HEAVY DUTY SPEAKER TERMINALS
Yamaha's heavy-duty speaker terminals accept banana plugs, spade connectors, and a variety of speaker wire, including heavy gauge cable.
