HDMI® (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first and only industry supported, uncompressed, all digital audio/video interface. With the ability to deliver crystal clear, all digital audio and video via a single cable, HDMI® dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest quality home theater experience. HDMI® can provide an interface between most audio/video sources, such as a set-top box, Blu-ray Disc™ player, DVD player or AV receiver and a video monitor, such as a high definition television (HDTV) over a single cable. Depending on the model of product, HDMI® can support standard, enhanced or high definition video, plus multichannel digital audio on a single cable. It can support all currently available compressed audio formats (such as Dolby® Digital and DTS) and most newer HDMI® devices can support lossless digital audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. (View the specifications of each product for details on HDMI® compatibility.)
The Simplay HD Testing Program represents a standard of excellence in testing for a premium-HD "plug and play" consumer experience and to maximize users' access to HD content. Products bearing the Simplay HD logo have undergone stringent quality testing related to the High-Definition Multimedia Interface(tm) "HDMI(tm)" and High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) specifications, as well as compatibility testing with a suite of other devices that have been Simplay HD verified.
Dolby Digital EX
This surround format from Dolby Digital includes an added center rear channel. The rear center channel is actually matrixed into the two rear channels, and is extracted upon playback. (Formerly called Dolby Digital Surround EX, or Dolby Digital Matrix 6.1.)
DTS NEO: 6
In this format, the back surround channel is matrix encoded into the left and right surround channels. For playback, the three channels are separately decoded.
XM - XM Ready
A product with this feature indicates that the item is XM Satellite Radio (XM Ready), allowing you to hear over 150 digital channels of music, news, sports, talk and entertainment from America's number one Satellite Radio service. With the addition of the optional digital antenna XM Mini-Tuner Home Dock and the XM Mini-Tuner accessories sold separately, just subscribe to XM Satellite Radio and hear radio as it was meant to be!
XM HD Surround Sound
XM and Neural Audio Corporation announce XM HD Surround, which provides content with six discrete channels of digital full fidelity audio powered by Neural Audio technology. Marking the first time that a radio company has broadcast in 5.1 Surround Sound twenty-four hours a day. Beginning in April 2006, XM will broadcast the Fine Tuning® (XM Channel 76) and the classical pops music channel XM Pops (XM Channel 113) in XM HD Surround. XM will also broadcast a variety of special shows and live music performances at the XM studios in XM HD Surround.
Neural Surround represents the latest advancement in surround technology and has been adopted by XM Satellite Radio for digital radio broadcast of surround recordings and live events in surround sound. Neural Surround employs psychoacoustic frequency domain processing which allows delivery of a more detailed sound stage with superior channel separation and localization of audio elements. System playback is scalable from 5.1 to 7.1 multi-channel surround playback.
Neural Surround™ name and related logos are trademarks owned by Neural Audio Corporation.
8 Ch Ext Input
8 additional input jacks for discrete multi-channel input. Front (Left, Center, Right), Rear (Surround Left & Right, Surround Back Left & Right) and Subwoofer
CINEMA DSP Digital
Conventional multichannel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced; actually creating independent sound fields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects located in separate sound fields, you will hear sound with directionality, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and presence.
SILENT CINEMA makes it possible to hear large-scale surround sound through ordinary headphones! This is a variation of CINEMA DSP technology that Yamaha developed to let you listen in private to movies and other multi-channel sources for hours without listening fatigue.
Compressed Music Enhancer
Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3 and WMA. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.
SCENE – A NEW LEVEL OF OPERATING EASE
With the press of a single button, anyone in the home can enjoy the performance of a Yamaha AV receiver. SCENE buttons found on the front panel, the middle of the remote control and on the AV Controller App are the key to simple receiver operation. For example, pressing the TV SCENE button will turn on the receiver, switch to the TV input and recall your selected DSP surround mode. One button is all it takes. While the receiver is preset with typical listening SCENEs, it is simple to customize a SCENE button for one touch recall of your favorite listening settings.
YPAO™ Automatic System Calibration
Yamaha’s YPAO system uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First, it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters, such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers and even the sound pressure level, etc. Until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room and you don't have to do anything!
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 Yamaha’s long experience in digital engineering and design, it brings together several key elements to create the best-sounding, A/V components available on the market.
