Product Description

Yamaha continue to pack more features into their home theatre receivers and the great sound they're known for remains a constant. The RX-V585 will bring excitement and drama to your home theatre while making it easier than ever to enjoy a wide range of entertainment. Think far beyond Blu-ray discs and CDs. The 'V585 is made to bring your smartphone, tablet, and computer into your home theatre while making everything from MP3s to online videos sound and look their best. Its many other advanced functions include HDCP2.2 compliant HDMI for 4K Ultra HD content support, High-Resolution audio playback support such as DSD and Virtual Surround Back Speaker.

Audio Section

The Yamaha RX-V585 Receiver incorporates Yamaha's Total Purity Concept for the finest sound quality. The Total Purity Concept, which Yamaha has been cultivating for decades, encompasses high drive amp technology, high purity pre-amplification, anti-vibration technology, and independent pure power supplies. As a result, the RX-V585 can provide high-quality sound for your movie & music soundtracks. A fully discrete power amplifier helps maximize sound and minimize distortion of the receiver. The '585 is equipped with a 7 channel amplifier rated at 80 Watts (8 Ohms, at 20-20kHz driving 2 channels) which provides high dynamic power with low-impedance drive capability. All amplifiers of this type include a DAC and the RX-V585 is no exception. It uses high quality, audio-grade Burr-Brown 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analogue converters for all channels to help maximise sound quality. The receiver also utilises low-jitter PLL circuitry to help optimize sound imaging. The result is a more dynamic sound with greater detail and less distortion. Additionally, the receiver's anti-vibration heatsinks suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure. Further demonstrating integrity, Independent power supplies are used for the receiver's analogue and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. Finally, the Yamaha RX-V585 allows you to assign its seven amplifier channels for Surround Back speakers, Dolby Atmos speakers, Bi-Amped Front speakers, or Zone B speakers.

Immersive Surround Sound

The Yamaha RX-V585 AV receiver goes beyond regular surround with the latest immersive surround sound formats, including Dolby Atmos & DTS:X.

  • Dolby Atmos: The Yamaha AV receiver will enhance properly designed systems with Dolby Atmos where sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill the home theatre with astonishing clarity, power, detail and depth. The RX-V585 has the processing power to run a more enveloping 5.1.2 channel Dolby Atmos layout utilizing front-height, ceiling mounted, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers (sold separately). A 5.1.2 speaker configuration is based upon a traditional 5.1 speaker layout complemented by two Front Height, Overhead, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
  • DTS:X: DTS:X is the next generation object-based, multi-dimensional audio technology from DTS. Unbound from channels, DTS:X conveys the fluid movement of sound to create an incredibly rich, realistic and immersive soundscape - in front of, behind, beside and above the audience - more accurately than ever before. DTS:X offers the ability to automatically adapt the audio to the speaker layout that best fits your space.

MusicCast - Whole House Audio At Your Fingertips: This is big news and a real point of difference between Yamaha and every other manufacturer. MusicCast is a new revolution in network audio and makes it super easy to create a whole house audio system starting with the RX-V585. MusicCast employs a high performance wireless network to deliver music and audio enjoyment to multiple components in multiple rooms...and easily. There are no extra "devices" to purchase to make it work thus saving you money and time. MusicCast can stream digital music content from your smartphone, PC or NAS drive to other MusicCast devices in your home including soundbars and wireless speakers. It can also share the music from external devices such as a TV or CD player connected to the RX-V585. Audio content from Bluetooth-connected devices can also be streamed to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms. Use all your MusicCast products together or separately, it’s completely up to you. Control it, all from one app, designed to be intuitive, quick and simple to use. Use a Yamaha soundbar, a wireless speaker, or an AV Receiver - whichever suits you best - mix and match then expand your MusicCast system as time goes on. All new from Yamaha, the MusicCast system brings everything to everywhere for everyone.

Let’s Talk - Alexa on MusicCast: “Alexa, ask MusicCast to play Favourite 1 in the Kitchen.” With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. The RX-V585 offers full compatibility with Amazon’s range of voice control devices. Welcome to the smart home. * Availability of voice command control via Amazon Alexa varies by region.

A World of Music - Streaming Services: Explore a world of music with music streaming services* built-in. Syncing your playlists and song likes from your smart phone or computer to the RX-V585, music streaming services make it impossibly easy to either listen to your faves or discover new music. (Currently supports Spotify, Napster, Tidal, Qobuz & Deezer) *Music streaming service availability varies by region.

Free and Easy Placement - Wireless Surround Speakers: Combine this AV receiver with the MusicCast 50 or MusicCast 20 wireless streaming speaker and enjoy the amazing convenience of creating a home theatre with wireless rear speakers. What’s more, you get stunningly realistic sound with a clean, clutter-free setup. Easily turn your current living room into a special entertainment environment where you can fully enjoy movies and music.

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-V585 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, Pandora 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-V585 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.


Experience 7.2 Sound Or A Second Zone: One of the benefits of the RX-V585's seven-channel amplifier is that it gives you choice. There are a total of seven speaker outputs on this receiver. That means you can connect a 7.2 channel system in your home theatre or you can reassign the back surround channels to Zone 2 speakers - probably a pair outside on the patio/deck. The same signal is played in both zones.

Our Take

The Yamaha RX-V585 works seamlessly with the latest Ultra HD TVs and Blu-ray players, with support for 4K on each HDMI connection, along with cutting-edge HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology. This receiver supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, so you can enjoy immersive surround sound to complement the stunning video quality. However, we presume only a very small percentage of buyers will go down the Dolby Atmos path as it probably won't have enough power to punch out the grunt in the larger rooms where Dolby Atmos is popular. But having said that, the '585 will perform admirably in a 5.1 system in a small to medium sized room. It will give you plenty of options when it comes to speakers and a subwoofer. Music aficionados will appreciate convenient playback of several different high-resolution audio formats through the front-panel USB port or a networked computer.
