YPAO-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control)
YPAO - Reflected Sound Control is designed to analyze room acoustics and measure various speaker characteristics, then calibrate audio parameters to achieve optimum sound. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalization, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds.
The Extra Bass low-range enhancement technology is designed to deliver enhanced bass while maintaining good localization and sound balance even with compact front speakers. When a subwoofer is used, it improves the volume of the entire low range of the speaker system, not only the front speakers, but also enhancing the bass from the subwoofer.
The Total Purity Concept encompasses high-drive amp technology, high-purity preamplification, anti-vibration technology, and independent pure power supplies. All models have discrete power amplifiers that help minimize distortion. They also adopt pure independent power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heat sinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure.
Discrete Amp Configuration
This A/V receiver employs a discrete amp configuration and a low-jitter PLL circuit.
SCENE Buttons for One-Touch Start
Pressing a SCENE button powers on the 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.
Virtual Presence Speaker with CINEMA DSP 3D
CINEMA DSP 3D is designed to provide a wide, high, and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker virtually delivers three-dimensional sound without the actual use of presence speakers.
Virtual CINEMA FRONT
Even when it's impossible to install surround speakers behind the listening position, Virtual CINEMA DSP reproduces virtual 5-channel surround sound for enhanced realism from only two front speakers. With Virtual CINEMA FRONT, you'll experience virtual 5-channel surround sound with augmented quality and resolution by installing surround speakers at the front.
Virtual Presence Speaker and Virtual Surround Back Speaker
With CINEMA DSP 3D, the Virtual Presence Speaker function makes use of center and surround speakers to create audible information from where presence (height) speakers are normally installed. In addition, this model also features a Virtual Surround Back Speaker function; even without using surround back speakers, you can experience more natural, lifelike sound from behind you without physical speakers being installed in the surround back area of the listening environment.
YPAO Volume applies loudness EQ correction to automatically adjust high and low frequency levels as volume changes. Using the YPAO measurement results, EQ correction is optimized to your system settings and listening environment.
Subwoofer Trim Control
The Subwoofer Trim Control is designed to enhance the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output to help produce a cleaner, more focused soundstage with a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs, the overall sound is pushed toward the subwoofer; Subwoofer Trim remedies this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies, thus stabilizing the front stage and balancing the bass.
Intelligent Amp Assign
Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers, depending on what speaker layout is selected. For example, in a 7.1-channel system, when Zone 2 is turned off, all 7.1-channels will be used in the main zone. However, when Zone 2 is powered on, the power to the two surround back channels will automatically be redirected to the two speakers in Zone 2 and the Main Zone will receive 5.1-channels of power. Similarly, when CINEMA DSP 3D is on, the two front presence speakers will be powered and not the two surround back speakers. When CINEMA DSP 3D is off, this situation is reversed. With Intelligent Amp Assign, there's no need to switch the speaker cables on the rear of the receiver.
Advanced Graphical User Interface
The graphical user interface has a high-resolution display with menus that are designed to be clear and easy-to-use, plus a selectable status bar that shows input source, volume level, DSP mode, and audio format.
Zone 2 Extra Bass
Use the Extra Bass feature to amplify bass tones, not just in your main room, but also on systems in Zone 2. Even with compact or in-wall speakers, which typically lack bass, you'll hear all your sources with enhanced bass sound.
Zone 2 Volume Equalizer
Automatically adjusts bass and treble balance to match the volume on systems in Zone 2. Enjoy movies and music with a natural sound quality balance, even at low volumes.
A/V Setup Guide App for Easier Installation
The A/V Setup Guide app is designed to make it much easier to perform the setup process with the receiver. This app assists you with cable connections between the receiver and source devices. Additionally, it guides you through various settings such as speaker connections, display and source device connections, and power amplifier assignments. System illustrations and actual receiver images help you understand how to make the connections between devices. It is available in multiple languages and is designed for iOS and Android tablets.
When ECO Mode is turned on, it can reduce power consumption by up to 20% compared to when ECO Mode is off.
Auto Power Standby lets you save energy by automatically turning off the receiver's power after 20 minutes, two, four, eight, or 12 hours.
