Featuring 7.2 surround for totally enveloping sound, the Yamaha RXV579 offers a cinematic experience.

7.2 channel output for immersive sound

With its 7.2 output, the Yamaha RXV-579 creates a true wrap-around soundstage. With two extra channels, the RXV579 creates a stronger soundscape through the use of side speakers. The twin subwoofer outlets gives the option of adding two subwoofers for a more even spread of bass around the room or simply more punch.

Quality sound with the option of bi-amping
Using a discrete amplifier with low jitter PLL (Phase-Locked Loop), distortion is exceptionally low and background noise very quiet. The amplifier also delivers a punchy 80 watts per channel (6 ohms) which is ample for all but the most demanding speakers and rooms. If you want to take the sound of your front speakers to the max then you can use the bi-amp function (bi-wirable speakers required and surround format is limited to 5.1). This doubles up on the amplification for much greater control and a more life-like sound quality. As an alternative, you can use this output to drive a pair of stereo speakers in another room.

Much more than just home cinema
As you'd expect from one of the first manufacturers of home cinema gear, the digital processing is also first rate. As well as full HD audio decoding of both Dolby and DTS formats, the RXV579 features Yamaha's famous DSP Surround programs. With 17 modes from The Roxy Theatre to a concert Hall in Munich, the RX-V579 gives a variety of acoustic settings simply not available on rivals. Added to this, four SCENE selections ensure that you always have the correct setting when watching films or listening to music.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
Built-in Apple AirPlay means that you can 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've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

Wi-Fi, DLNA and a smart app for effortless streaming
New to this year's model is standard Wi-Fi, giving easy connection to your home network. A DLNA certified connection also makes streaming a breeze. You can access your stored music from PC, laptop or NAS drive and listen to Internet radio stations and music services. Another great feature is the downloadable Apple or Android app that lets you control many of the receiver's functions from your smartphone, iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or tablet.

Ready for 4K
The Yamaha RXV579 features 4K pass-through for the HDMI sockets. With 4K TVs now coming through in big numbers this year, by equipping this AV receiver with 4K pass-through sockets and the HDCP2.2 format, Yamaha have engineered in a degree of future proofing. The 6 HDMI inputs are also 3D Ready and support Audio Return Channel (ARC) functionality for reduced cabling. The RXV579 is also equipped with a front-mounted USB interface that's perfect for listening to music from your iPhone or USB media device. This is also the first Yamaha in the 79-series to feature component connections, making it ideal for use with older AV equipment.

Easy to use with automatic speaker set-up
With YPAO sound optimisation and colour onscreen display, the Yamaha RXV579 isn't the daunting prospect to operate that you might expect. YPAO uses the supplied microphone to measure your room's acoustics and then sets the various parameters to suit. All this is done within just a few minutes and gives professional results at the touch of a button.

Move up to the next level in surround sound, with the 7.2 channel Yamaha RXV579.
