"The RX-V581 is an exciting amplifier, and the way it handles bass and

sound effects is sure to whet the appetite of any home cinema fan." 'What Hi-Fi? magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £500.


Ready for DTS:X

DTS:X is the flagship processor from this highly respected tech company. It literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also offers other advantages such as the ability to boost the spatial effect of conventional DTS and easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

Dolby Atmos
Optimised for Dolby Atmos, you can be amongst the first to experience the wonder of Dolby Atmos in your own home. Producing a multi-dimensional and totally immersive sound, Dolby Atmos has been hailed as the greatest advance in surround sound for 20 years - so don't miss out!

Hi-Res Audio playback
At the heart of the Yamaha's digital processing are top quality Burr Brown DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertor). These not only provide punchy and lifelike sound but also facilitate the playback of High Resolution audio formats. The RXV581 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha RXV581 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 tablet. 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.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
As well as MusicCast, the RXV581 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've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

Wi-Fi, DLNA and a smart app for effortless streaming
Connecting to your home network is easy with built-in Wi-Fi. 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 such as Spotify. 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.

Crisp, punchy sound
By 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 handy 80 watts per channel (6 ohms) for totally immersive sound. For an even punchier sound, try the 'Extra Bass' function. This gives a deeper, richer bass response and work really well with small speakers and at lower volume levels.

With full HDCP2.2 compatibility
The RXV581 has HDCP2.2 compatibility through all of its four HDMI inputs. Along with support for HDR and BT.2020, this means the RXV581 is fully equipped for handling the latest UHD Blu-ray players and HDR-equipped 4K TVs.

With Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and first-rate networking, the Yamaha RXV581 is a classic all-rounder.
