Take a big step up from a soundbar and immerse yourself in sound, with the Yamaha RXV485.

Virtual Presence Speaker for the effect of 7.1-channel sound.

As standard, the Yamaha RXV485 comes with an already soundbar-beating 5.1 channels of immersive sound. With Yamaha’s Virtual Presence Speaker function you can boost the sound dimensionality – without the need for any extra speakers. The expansive sound field gives a sound close to a 7.1 speaker set-up but with just 5.1 speakers running.

Voice control with Amazon Alexa
With Alexa voice control integration, if you want something, all you have to do is ask. Working in conjunction with Yamaha’s MusicCast system, the RXV485 easily plays your music requests. Compatible with Amazon’s range of voice control devices, the RXV485 blends seamlessly with your smart home system.

Surround sound, untied
New to this year’s RX-V series is the option to add wireless rear speakers. Combine this receiver with the Yamaha MusicCast 20 or MusicCast 50 speakers and you can leave aside speaker cable connections. Perfect if you have a solid floor and struggle to hide speaker cable or if you simply want a cleaner style, wireless surround speakers cut down on the clutter.

See your video at its best – Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG compatible HDMI interface
Making sure you get the best from 4K streaming, UHD Blu-ray and 4K broadcasts, the RXV485 is compatible with Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma). All four inputs are compatible, meaning you can connect a couple of games consoles, Blu-ray player and a TV set-top box.

Hi-Res Audio playback for the ultimate audio
Burr Brown 384kHz/32-bit DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) are at the heart of this impressive Yamaha AVR and imbue it with powerful processing. The DACs not only provide punchy and lifelike sound but also facilitate the playback of many High Resolution audio formats. The RXV485 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD up to 11.2 MHz and WAV/AIFF up to 192kHz-32-bit for exceptional sound quality.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RXV485 is part of Yamaha's hugely impressive network audio system, MusicCast. With MusicCast you can control all your compatible Yamaha MusicCast products via your smartphone or even Amazon Alexa by voice. Play the same music on all the components or split the sound into different zones for different moods in each room; the choice is yours. The MusicCast CONTROLLER app lets you operate the system around your home and change settings quickly and easily.

Stream the best music services
Compatible with Spotify Premium, Pandora, Napster, Tidal, Deezer and Qobuz, the RXV485 is fully equipped for your favourite music streaming service. With Tidal and Qobuz already offering higher resolution playback, it’s now possible to find a streaming service that at least matches the quality of CD and, in some cases, even improves upon it.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
As well as MusicCast, the RXV485 also has built-in Apple AirPlay, letting you stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly. You can also view data such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via the AV receiver's on-screen display. *Some models don't support album art display. If you use another brand of smartphone or tablet then you also have Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

Come home to cinema sound, with the Yamaha RXV485.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Replacement Yamaha AV Receiver My old AV receiver died so I checked out Richer Sounds and went with their advice. My newRXV485 is handsome, sleek and performs well above it station. After it was set up there were noticeable improvements in all aspects of functioning and new features which I'm still just learning. Needless to say I am well pleased with my new product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a beginner/entry level 4k / HDR setup Bought to replace an aging Yamaha VX-667 for 4k and HDR playback. I chose it over other comparably priced amps because I know and trust Yamaha and also because it accepts banabna plugs, which many other cheaper amps don't. All in all I'm delighted with it and think it is a bargain for an entry level setup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound at a great price. Bought this because my old Sony AVR was not 4K compatible. So glad I did, the sound and picture are amazing!! Only one gripe, you cannot use banana plugs with this item. That aside it is a great value amp backed up by the usual excellent service from Richer Sounds in Croydon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a good system for the money but a few glitches Had my last Yamaha Amp for best part of 15years which recently died, not helped by young boys. Therefore, opted for a baseline model and for the money this is a very good system with some great features. However, we did have to send first one back with a problem and the second one does like to drop out from time to time. You do get what you pay for and I doubt this one will last 15years like my last one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha RXV485 Big improvement on previous model as the android app makes it much easier to set up. The other advantages are : it doesn't heat up as much , the music cast is a great idea although the speakers are not cheap , still no DAB but internet radio . Good buy.
