POWERFUL HOME THEATER RECEIVER
The RX-V540 is a full-featured home theater receiver ready for all formats. Major features include 6-channel discrete amplification (80W x6), Yamaha's Digital ToP-ART design concept, Quad-Field CINEMA DSP, 24 surround program, SILENT CINEMA, and a preset remote control. It delivers high power to six channels and provides DTS ES Discrete 6.1, Neo:6, and DTS ES Matrix 6.1 decoding as well as Dolby Digital EX 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.
96kHz/24-BIT DIGITAL-TO-ANALOG CONVERTER SYSTEM
The RX-V540's vitally important digital-to-analog converters use an extremely high performance 96kHz/24-bit operation type. They perform accurate sound field reproduction for high quality multi-channel sources, and for two-channel stereo, provide outstanding separation and precise musical delineation.
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 80 watts each to six channels.
24 DIFFERENT SOUND PROGRAMS YIELDING 44 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-V540 features 24 different sound programs that provide a total of 44 variations, so every movie and every piece of music will sound right in your home theater.
PRESET REMOTE CONTROL UNIT
The RX-V540's remote control has built in preset codes for most other manufacturers' equipment, so you can use it as a single remote for the entire system.
DIGITALLY REGULATED ANALOG 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 Digitally Regulated 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.
DOLBY SURROUND PRO LOGIC II
This new Dolby format provides 5.1-channel surround from any stereo source. A Movie Mode and Music Mode are provided for optimum listening.
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.
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 RX-V540 also includes a Video Conversion circuit (S-Video to Composite).
FOUR DIGITAL INPUTS, ONE DIGITAL OUTPUT
With four fully assignable digital inputs (3 optical and 1 coaxial), the RX-V540 can accommodate digital sources such as DVD, CD, MD/CDR, and D-TV/CBL . One optical digital output assures the finest possible signal leaving the receiver for your other component.
S-VIDEO AND COMPONENT VIDEO INPUTS AND OUTPUTS
The RX-V540 has three S-video inputs and one S-video outputs. The receiver incorporates two component video inputs.
FRONT PANEL A/V INPUTS
For simple temporary connection, the receiver is equipped with a set of front panel A/V inputs.
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, or you can run two pair of main speakers simultaneously.
This allows you to add an outboard powered subwoofer.
LOW IMPEDANCE DRIVE CAPABILILTY 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.
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.
