Newly Released Yamaha AV Receivers and Home Theatre Packs Filled With Features For 3D Viewing Enjoyment

Yamaha Music Australia is excited to announce the release of three new 3D ready AV receivers and matching home theatre packs to the existing ‘67’ range. In the development of the AV receiver range Yamaha has focused on 3D integration, upgraded audio & listening modes and revised price points. Each receiver has also been tuned differently from the previous ‘65’ series to provide a more refined audio signature.

Like the previously released ‘67’ models, the most notable feature of this range is 3D ready straight out of the box. The RX-V667, RX-V767 and RX-V1067 also feature ARC (Audio Return Channel) which allows a compatible TV to send audio ‘backwards’ along a HDMI cable, eliminating the need for an optical or coaxial cable.

The RX-V667 (90W x 7) features a HDMI repeater (6 in/1 out) with CINEMA DSP 3D mode with or without Front Presence Speakers. This receiver also features 1080p upscaling with precise deinterlacing, a colour GUI (Graphical User Interface) that is overlayed via HDMI, zone 2 for multiple audio sources in different areas and iPod album artwork display on your TV. The RX-V667 is included in the YHT-994AU home theatre package which also includes 2 x NS- 555, 4 x NS-333, 1 x NS-C444 speakers and the YST-RSW300 subwoofer.

Unparalleled performance for the price, the RX-V767 (95W x 7) adds dual HDMI outputs to the existing six HDMI inputs (6 in/2 out) allowing you to run multiple HD monitors simultaneously. An additional 5w for each of the seven channels enable the RX-V767 to drive larger speakers while the aluminium front panel provides better shielding from electromagnetic interference. The RX-V767 is included with the YHT-1094AU home theatre pack which includes NS- 777 main speakers, 4 x NS-333, 1 x NS-C444 speakers with two YST-RSW300 subwoofers.

The RX-V1067 (105W x 7) features eight (8) HDMI inputs with dual simultaneous outputs (8 in/2 out). The additional 10w per channel over the RX-V767 enables this receiver to power most speakers on the market. The front USB connection allows you to enjoy music stored on thumb drives and Ethernet connectivity provides further versatility, giving access to Internet radio and music stored on a PC or NAS server. The Ethernet connection also allows web browser control from products such as an iPhone that are part of the local area network. RS-232 is included for integrating with touch-screen remote controllers. The RX-V1067 is included in the YHT-1194AU home theatre package along with NS-9900 floorstanding speakers, NS-P9900 centre/surround speakers, two YST-RSW300 subwoofers and the NS-AW592 outdoor speakers. The RX-V1067 and YHT-1194A will be available in September 2010.

Highlighting Yamaha’s commitment to user friendly operation, all receivers have Yamaha’s exclusive YPAO calibration system. YPAO (Yamaha Parametric Acoustic Room Optimiser) measures speaker size and capacity along with room and acoustic measurements to ensure the ultimate surround performance at the listener’s position. The revised user interface and new layout of the front and rear panels, combined with the preset remote control and GUI make setup and operation of the RX-V667, RX-V767 and RX-V1067 simple and easy to use
