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 Great value for money! well above expectation! Bought as a Birthday present to myself after a hard couple of months (NHS frontline worker) Brilliant! took a while to set up and still getting use to all the settings but am very pleased! Bluetooth, WiFi and Network connection are a bonus at this price and have matched with a set of Yamaha NS-P41 Speakers and am really impressed with the system

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent AV Receiver Fully featured 5.1 surround AV receiver. Sound is great, set up easy and the Yamaha sound optimisation (YPAO) feature makes setting your speaker position and levels a cinch. Excellent value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations I bought this because the amplifier on my ageing Panasonic Home Cinema system had broken down. My hope was that this Yamaha would perform as well. I have also purchased a Yamaha subwoofer, JBL surround speakers and an Acoustics centre speaker to go with it. To my ears the sound quality overall is superb and much better than I was hoping for on a moderately priced system. The clarity is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features easy to set up I bought this av amp to replace my ageing amp. Easy to set up with an on screen guide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent advice and great product I needed a new amp after having changed my TV set to a more advanced one. I have a small living room with a suitable sound surround system and wanted a piece of equipment that could accomodate the BEIN receiver, Blue Ray player, the WII etc. and that is in a reasonable price range. This amp fits my needs perfectly, has a very good sound quality and works perfectly with all of the above and with my new smart TV. The price is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big sound and clever I've had it set up for a few weeks now, set up with Tannoy centre, Wharfedale sides and a Denon subwoofer. I have the TV, Apple TV and PS4 and controlling the volume through the TV is a real plus for me. I really like the Yamaha AV Controller app. Sound effects such as a basement, or concert hall are great fun, but I'm still trying to find a scenario where I can use them. All-in-all, though the main thing is that I'm loving the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this two weeks ago, and happy with purchase, but disappointed that instructions is not in polish language.Try find this online, but not possible...:( If someone can let me know where can I find polish instructions that would be great, and I will be more than happy to do Excellence rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant receiver for 5.1 channels or less I wanted something to replace my old Yamaha receiver which had given me many years of great sound and entertainment. Very pleased with the RX-V485. Beautiful natural sound which Yamaha seem to do so well - precise, natural clarity, plenty of detail and clean, we;;-balanced bass. A joy to listen to. I only use 3 channels so no need for Atmos. Would be nice to have Chromecast but Bluetooth works just fine from my other devices. Great connectivity, features and mobile app support. I couldn't find a 5.1 receiver which sounds better - highly recommended!
