Wi-Fi Offers A Wide Range Of Wireless Music Options: If you've never connected a receiver to your wireless home network, you may not realize how much music you're missing out on. Built-in Wi-Fi makes the RX-V485 a snap to integrate with your network. Once you're connected, you can listen to free Pandora Internet radio as well as free radio streams from hundreds of stations around the world. If you're a subscriber to Spotify or something similar you can enjoy their seemingly endless music choices. Got a computer or networked hard drive loaded with music? DLNA compatibility allows this receiver to tap into your collection wirelessly, so you never have to touch another CD again. Finally, if you're an Apple user, AirPlay lets you listen wirelessly from your iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®, or a computer running iTunes.

Easy Control With Your Smartphone Or Tablet: What's the best way to control this receiver's many features? Download the free Yamaha AV Controller app to your smartphone or tablet. Available for Apple or Android, the app offers easy touchscreen control of the receiver's most critical functions — from switching sources and controlling the volume, to multi-zone playback control and selecting an Internet radio station.

Built On Sound Principles: Excellent sound quality is the guiding principle behind Yamaha's receivers. Low-jitter PLL circuitry reduces timing jitter from digital sources, for accurate playback and precise stereo imaging. The aluminum front panel is a nice touch and the high-quality Burr-Brown digital-to-analogue converters decode the latest audio formats with accuracy and detail, so digital sources like Blu-ray discs and high-resolution music files sound their best.

Bi-Amp Connection: For even higher quality sound the RX-V485 features bi-amping capability, driving the treble and bass ranges of the front speakers (L, R) with independent amplifiers. In addition to providing greater power, it also prevents interference between the high and low sounds, further improving the sound of the front speakers.

Our Take
