Move on up from a soundbar and enjoy the thrill of cinema sound, with the Yamaha RX-V4A.

Fully immersive sound
With multi-channel Dolby and DTS sound, the Yamaha RX-V4A delivers an enveloping sound that soundbars simply can’t match. Taking this further, Yamaha’s unique Cinema DSP 3D system offers 17 DSP programmes for a huge variety of soundscapes. From concert halls to music clubs around the world, Cinema DSP recreates unique acoustics for that feeling of ‘being there’.

Powerful precision
For precise, dynamic sound, the Yamaha RX-V4A uses a high slew rate amplifier. Ideal for HiRes music and home cinema, the amp powers your music or soundtracks with gusto – keeping you on the edge of your seat during action movies or gaming, and totally bewitched by your favourite music. This design of amplifier can be tricky to optimise, but Yamaha’s unique design achieves dynamic scale while also maintaining a stable signal transmission.

Surround sound, untied
For an easy way to reduce cabling, the RX-V4A offers the option of 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.

Compatible with the next generation of high resolution – 8K*
Featuring a dedicated, 8K compliant HDMI input and matching output, this Yamaha AVR is ready for the next generation of TV. If you’ve not yet made the jump to 8K TV, the socket also handles up to 4K/120Hz signals, for the highest quality pass through. Upscaling to UHD 4K is also standard. *via firmware update.

Supports Dolby Vision and HDR10+*
Using a 4/1 (in/out) HDMI interface, the RX-V4A supports your full system. It also supports a wide range of High Dynamic Range video formats. These include Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG. It also supports HDR10+, which enhances picture realism by sending dynamic Meta data to your TV. *via firmware update.

Game on*
The latest HDMI support also marks a big improvement in gaming. 4K/120Hz and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) support maximise resolution and clarity. Quick Frame Transport (QFT) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) help eliminate lag and frame tearing, giving you a smoother, more responsive gaming experience. *via firmware update.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RX-V4A is part of Yamaha's hugely impressive network audio system, MusicCast. With MusicCast you control all your compatible Yamaha MusicCast products via your smartphone or even Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant 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. *requires third party Alexa or Google device.

Stream the best music services
Compatible with Amazon Music, Spotify Premium, Pandora, Napster, Tidal, Deezer and Qobuz, the RXV4A 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 RX-V4A is also compatible with Apple AirPlay 2, letting you stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly, around your home. Just ask Siri where you want the music to play. For a quick and easy connection with your smartphone, use the Bluetooth connection for easy music streaming.

Sleek new style
If you’re used to AV receivers being all bulk and buttons, the RX-V4A will come as a pleasant surprise. Rounded edges give a softer, less imposing style. Yamaha has also kept the button count to a minimum, giving this AVR a much cleaner and fresher aesthetic.

For the best in cinema-style entertainment, stay at home with the Yamaha RX-V4A.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my TV set up Works brilliantly with my Sony TV and Artcoustic sound bar and sub-woofer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Delivery and good advice Recently purchased the new Yamaha RX-V4 receiver and some Q Acoustics speakers from RS for front and surround sound. Advice received was great with no attempt to drive budget up and suitable/better alternatives offered. Sound is great and beautifully clear now with both movies and music and all equipment arrived within 2 days of order being placed. Can't fault the service so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, easy to use remote I bought this to replace my str dn1040. With a 4K projector and a PS5 the old Sony av just didn’t work anymore. The new Yamaha however is more than up to the task. Superb sound even with my old speakers. The subwoofer feels stronger, the surround more alive. I still need to experiment with the dialog enhanced but so far I’m the sound is much clearer so I never struggled with having to raise the volume to hear properly. With a push of a button you can switch from straight sound to virtual surround for when you are watching something that doesn’t have full surround The hdmi inputs recognise what they are connected to: they automatically show fire tv, ps5 or switch. I’m quite happy with it and that’s the best thing I can say about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great AV I bought this 3 weeks ago and I am very impressed with it. I bought it to replace my old Yamaha. I had a long chat with Ian at the Romford branch who was extremely helpful giving me advice to chose my AV and I am glad he did. This AV is little bit deeper in size than my old one but the sound quality is superb via my kef speakers and Dali subwoofer. I would recommend this AV.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yamaha shortfall I bought this a month ago. Not impressed unfortunately. Had Yamaha receivers in the past and always liked them. But this new receiver missed out on a few things? Tuning the radio stations FM and DAB. No on screen display? On such a modern Receiver? The access of information on the unit itself. Small hard to read display that isn't very user friendly. The front facia is touch sensitive yet a finger print magnet. Sound quality is fine But no leap forward in either stereo or surround sound. DSP facilities are best avoided. And finally. The receiver is not very good at shaking hands with other units is tv or a set top box. In the plus side. 8K and a DAB Tuner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound reproduction I bought this Yamaha receiver for its sound reproduction and wireless surround sound. I'm not disappointed. Excellent connectivity for all connections is on place. You can tweak the soundscape to your precise requirements and save the setup for a one button recall. It's definitely got floor shaking power, but retains clear centre speaker sound, so listening is no problem. Together with the MusicCast app, it's a really good package. A great price from Richer Sounds as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than ‘Just the job’! I have used an amplifier in my home lounge for many years, together with a compliment of appropriate speakers and a sub woofer the resulting surround sound for movies and general sound for music was great. I purchased this amplifier from Richer Sounds on advise from Bradley over the phone and it has proved to be a superior replacement and already my sound system is more than I could have hoped for. Great value for money, superb straightforward and honest advice and a very efficient buying process (less than 5 days to receive my machine) I am very happy. The pricing of their products is competitive and in addition to my previous comments I would not look further than Richer Sounds for my sound requirements- great customer service - out of hours service is good too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha RXV4A I bought this amp a few weeks ago after speaking to the friendly staff at Solihull over the phone. My previous amp no longer worked so I was looking for an upgrade without changing my whole setup. Karl was very helpful and pointed me to this AV receiver which fits in perfect with the speakers I already have as well as providing me with some future proof options. Would highly recommend.
