AirPlay wireless music streaming to the AV receiver
This AV receiver supports AirPlay - wireless music streaming from iPod touch, iPhone or iPad as well as from iTunes on Macs and PCs. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theatre system. View metadata such as song title and artist name via the AV receiver's on-screen display.

Network Functions
This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to intuitively navigate and access all music sources on the network. You can also enjoy tens of thousands of radio stations from around the world via the Internet. The AV Controller app (available as a free download from the App Store and Google Play) lets you control various functions from your iPod touch, iPhone, iPad or Android device.

AV Controller app for convenient, intuitive operation

This AV receiver lets you use Yamaha's AV Controller app that is downloadable from the App Store or Google Play to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPod touch, iPhone, iPad or Android device. A tablet version is also available.

USB Digital Connection for iPod, iPhone and iPad on the Front Panel
A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone/iPad is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver’s remote control unit to operate the iPod/iPhone/iPad music playback functions.

Audio Features

  • 5-channel 575W = 115W x 5 (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9 % THD, 1 ch driven)
  •  400W = 80W x 5 (6 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.09 % THD, 2 ch driven)
  •  675W = 135W x 5 (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 10 % THD, 1 ch driven, JEITA)
  • HD Audio format decoding: Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio; Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
  • Discrete amp configuration
  • Burr-Brown 192 kHz/24-bit DACs for all channels
  • Direct Mode for high quality sound reproduction
  • Low jitter PLL circuitry helps optimise sound imaging

[ Video Features ] 4K pass-through for next generation super high resolution images
This AV receiver provides advanced HDMI features including 4K pass-through. 4K refers to a super-high resolution video format (approximately four times the resolution of a 1080p display). While not yet available, 4K displays and sources are sure to become popular in the future. This receiver is capable of passing the 4K data from the source to the display, for image clarity far beyond today's standards.

HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel

This receiver can handle 3D signal data. The Audio Return Channel function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable, so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable with no need for an extra optical cable.

Other notable video features

  • Supports Deep Colour (30/36 bit), x.v.Colour, 24 Hz Refresh Rate and Auto Lip-Sync compensation

[ Advanced Features ] YPAO automatic speaker setup for optimal sound

YPAO analyses the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes. It’s like having a professional installer calibrate your system.

SCENE for One-Touch Start

Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can reset the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.
HDMI CEC for easy operation

Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, it will turn on and off together with the TV, and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other
 components. For example, you can use the receiver’s remote unit to control player functions like Skip and Stop.
 *All connected devices must be HDMI CEC compatible. Some CEC compatible TVs/players may not work.
Input selection in HDMI Standby Through mode

When the AV receiver is in HDMI Standby Through mode, the input source (Blu-ray player, game console, etc.) for viewing on the monitor can be changed via the remote control. There’s no need to turn on the AV receiver in order to switch sources.
Other notable advanced features

  • Charging of iPod, iPhone and iPad via USB when AV Receiver is off
  • iPod/iPhone song titles displayed in English and Western European languages on the front panel
  • Multi language colour OSD for improved visibility (English, German, French, Spanish, Russian and Chinese)
  • Audio input assign capability for HDMI and component video input
  • Audio Delay for adjusting Lip-Sync (0-250 ms)
  • 40-station preset tuning / Auto preset tuning
  • Preset remote unit
  • Background Video feature (for Radio only)

[ Surround Realism ] HD Audio with CINEMA DSP 3D and Virtual Presence Speaker
CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers.
Subwoofer Trim for Improved Sound Imaging
The Subwoofer Trim control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is “pushed” toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilising the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.
Compressed Music Enhancer

When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.
Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)

Adaptive DRC automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume level. This ensures that you hear clear dialogue and vocals, and all sound effects at comfortable levels. There is no need to adjust the volume level as you listen; everything from whispers to big explosions will be heard clearly and comfortably at the same volume setting. It also tones down loud TV commercials, and is ideal for low-volume, late-night listening, when you do not want to disturb others.
Other notable surround realism


[ Eco-Friendly Design ] ECO mode lowers power consumption by 20%*

Yamaha’s new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu.
Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).
Selectable Auto Power Down

  • Auto Power Down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours.

Low standby power consumption

Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.1W in IR Standby mode (1W in HDMI Standby Through mode, 2W in Network Standby mode).
HD Audio Compatible, for Great Movie Sound

The YHT-398AU speakers are tuned to deliver a clear, soft sound that is pleasant to listen to for long periods. In addition, the surround speakers and subwoofer are perfectly matched for smooth sound crossover. They provide a rich, expansive sound with both music and movies.
Advanced YST II for Awesome Deep Bass

Yamaha's newly developed Advanced YST II (Yamaha Active Servo Technology II) combines negative-impedance and constant-current principles to drive the speaker cone with even tighter control than previously. Using Advanced Negative Impedance Converter (ANIC) circuits, this system dynamically optimizes effective speaker impedance to maintain excellent linearity. This means more stable and accurate low range response, not to mention higher sound pressure levels, for more natural and energetic bass reproduction.
Linear Port

  • The Linear Port helps to ensure smooth bass response, while minimizing extraneous noise.
  • Advanced YST II produces rich bass sound, and the addition of a Linear Port reduces extraneous noise for even higher quality.

Glossy Black Cabinets
The glossy black speaker cabinets are designed to complement the appearance of most of the latest flat-screen TVs.
Traditional Design Enhances Any Room
The surround and center models have the traditional look of Yamaha speakers. Their clean design matches their high sound quality, and they can be placed in any convenient location.
Wall mountable (front, center and surround)
Keyhole openings in the back allow these speakers to be neatly mounted on a wall.
