Favorite seat. Check. Frosty beverage. Check. Cornucopia of snacks. Check. To complete the perfect home theater experience you need a great home theater receiver. With Yamaha's RX-V375, you'll find yourself whisked off the sofa and right into the middle of the action, with gripping surround sound for all your movies, TV shows, and video games. The ‘V375 decodes the latest high-resolution audio formats found on many Blu-ray movies and concerts, for sound that makes you feel like you are there. You get four HDMI inputs for your high-def video sources, and this receiver will even pass 3D video signals from your corresponding Blu-ray player to a compatible TV.
You'll get used to hearing that question whenever you're playing your favorite tunes from your Apple portable device. The RX-V375 features Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer, which restores your favorites to near-original sound quality. Play your iPod®, iPhone or iPad® via the convenient front-panel USB input. This direct digital connection bypasses the iPod's headphone circuitry in order to send the cleanest possible sound to your speakers. And, there's a minijack input up front for connecting any portable audio player.
Some of the most advanced features of Yamaha's RXV series receivers are heard rather than seen. For starters, there's Yamaha's auto-speaker calibration system; YPAO. Simply connect the included microphone to your receiver, place it in your favorite listening position and let the system do the rest. YPAO analyzes your room‘s acoustics and makes adjustments for optimum sound in just a few minutes. It's like having a professional installer calibrate your system. Yamaha also adds Subwoofer Trim Control that enhances low frequencies by reducing overlap with the front speakers. You'll hear a cleaner, more focused soundstage along with seamless bass throughout the room.
Yamaha's special SCENE modes make this receiver a snap to use. Just press one of the four dedicated buttons on the receiver's front panel or remote, and the 'V375 automatically switches to the correct input setting and sound mode for viewing DVD or Blu-ray discs, playing CDs, watching TV, or listening to the radio. Plus, you can individually reprogram each button for different activities of your choice, such as playing video games, listening to your iPod, and more.Learn about the ins and outs of HDMI connections at the Crutchfield Learning Center.

Your receiver powers your speakers and lets you connect and select your entertainment sources. But a great receiver does a lot more it ignites your emotions. From the passion of a favorite musical artist, to the crossfire of a super-charged movie soundtrack, to the intensity and immersion of a fast-paced video game, your receiver is the key to experiencing and enjoying it in full.
I am not an expert by any means on sound systems,so I spoke with Lefty at Crutchfield who based on our needs suggested the yamaha rx-v375 tuner.My wife and I are very pleased with our purchase,we have very good sound from our surround system.I also highly recommend crutchfield a very good expierence.
Very satisfied. With all the hook ups I was able to plug into every electronic device I have.
Pros: Plug ins
Cons: Nothing comes to mind
Pros - Easy hookup. A LOT of options for inputs. Very flexible. Good sound.
Cons - No upconverting. A little underpowered.
Just got this reciever a couple days ago. Clear as a bell. I've noticed I have to turn it up higher (according to the digital scale for volume control) vs. my panasonic it replaced. It is only 70 watt per vs. 100 watts per channel though, so I expected this. I have this in a larger room.. about 20x20ft (may be larger) so I may have trouble filling the room like the last one did.. but it works great for movies. I love that I can use a dvi - hdmi cable from my computer and select an analog audio source (or one of the myriad of digital inputs) instead of being forced to use only the sound channels that aren't present (in this case) from the hdmi cable. I like it so far. Time will tell if I really love it though.
I dislike that the connections on the back switch types though. Why on earth would you have your front speakers be a different connector than the rears and center? This doesn't make any sense and while the receiver will accept stripped wire at a terminal, it uses 2 different types of terminals. Its the small things like this that remind me (when I have to adjust things in back.. I'm never satisfied with the cabling/etc so I'm always adjusting it) that its a low dollar amp. That said, this receiver is definitely a good buy and it has me itching to add my surrounds and a sub to see what it really will do...
Pros: Very flexible - use any video input with any audio input
Cons: Not the most powerful integrated amp.. would have liked to see a true 5x100. This is 100watts if only running 1 speaker if I read the manual right and 70 if running two...
Works great with my Bose surround sound speakers.
Pros: Very clean sound.
Cons: No HDMI pass through unless the unit is powered on.
Extremely satisfied at this price point. Have all I needed for sound in a hometheater setup. Works really well in my 14 x 18 family room. Paired with Energy Micro. Excellent sound quality.
Pros: Price, performance, features, easy setup.
Cons: None so far.
Not the most expensive or feature filled unit, but it is a great upgrade for the price from the 12 year old system it replaced. Fills up our family room with good sound definition on all 5+1 channels fort all movie types.
Pros: great price!
Cons: so switched a/c outlet on the back to plug the subwoofer into
I bought this receiver to replace another Yamaha older generation unit. The old unit had caused no issue but to upgrade to a bluray smart player I needed HDMI switching. My HDTV has just one.
I have decided that I did not need any other features than this unit provided.
The RX V375 was the perfect replacement. I believe that it actually sounds better than the old unit.
The setup was easy although I am not certain I could tell a difference when I used the mic for the speaker setup.
I really like the front USB port. It works very well with my IPhone. I like the on Tv screen display when using Pandora or Amazon cloud player. I now what to get a 64 gig jump drive to load all of my music to and leave it in the port. The on screen navigation is sort of awkward but usable.
All in all I am happy. There less expensive receivers but I believe you can not go wrong with Yamaha quality.
Pros: USB port with on screen navigation. Plenty of HMDI inputs. Easy to use remote.
Cons: None from exactly what I wanted.
I am so pleased with this receiver. I love the sound separation, the power, the ease of use... I can't think of anything negative to say. I am so glad that I made this purchase
Pros: Excellent sound separation, remote, automatic sound adjustment, inputs
Cons: Would have liked a paper manual.
Did my homework on this model and ,did the ordering on the internet. The box came with ripped opened but the peanuts and the inside box seemed ok, Called Crutchfield to tell them, and was told if any issues to send it back for a replacement or money back, it seemed ok and is working fine so far, good sound, easy to hook up and use.
Pros: easy to hook up, nice remote, good sound for the price
Cons: box came ripped opened
I am set up for 5.1 in a small 12 x 14 bedroom. This amp had six movie and video game settings where my prior amp had one, in a variety of one. Also came with a test microphone and plug in to automatically adjust the sound
Awesome love it.
A full featured unit with unusual amount of applications. The ability to drive 4 ohm speakers is a plus. Easy set up even for a simple two channel operation. Sound quality is very good for a unit at this price point.
Pros: Price, features, set up, sound quality, accepts 4 ohm speaker load
Cons: Owners manual on CD is inconvenient
Before I review this product, let me tell you how good their customer service is. I purchased a denon 1613. 2 weeks in and I lose picture and sound. all I can get to display is the ipod control. after a half hour of pressing every button under the stars on 3 different remotes. I called Tech Support. My advisor Brent patiently went through all the different scenarios to try and get the tv back on. After another 1/2 hour, he's pretty sure the hdmi circuit blew out and I need to replace it. oko, but the model is no longer made and its sold out. We looked at the replacement model and it didn't quite have the type of connectivity I needed. ps -i am 60 and I play records. I asked for a recommendation. He offered a sony and this model. When I explained what I was looking for, he said sound wise the Yamaha is known for its clarity. connections worked out perfectly. so I bought it. and it was 50$ cheaper than the denon. easy no hassle return. As for the 375, I was fine out of the box. Loads of sound options. nice and clean, and excellent bottom end. ( I'm a bass player). Set up is pretty easy. You'll need to download the instructions from a disc (cheap!) I did have a slight issue with the woofer dist. was listed as 19ft away when it was only 11. the other 4 speakers were set remarkably close to their actual distances from my chair. The other reason for a 4 is that in order to watch tv you have to have the unit on. I went around this by running rca's from cable direct to TV.
Pros: clear as a bell. A load of sound preference options. A lot of fun if you are a tweaker like me Good on screen display. Easy remote to get used to. For the money, I don't think you can do better.
Cons: minor- if you use their mic to set distances you may have a problem with the woofer distance. I did 3x it came up 19ft even after adjusting cross overs etc. Getting bass just right since I'm a player si always a load of fun. the other was that if you go through the hdmi tv in plug the unit has to be on. there is no pass through. So you may need to connect the tv direct to the cable box via rca plugs. I give this unit a sold 4.50
Purchased to replace an aging Sony 500-watt AV receiver. Simple hook up, included the microphone to tailor sound to my preferred seat, includes optical input for AirportExpress which marginally improves sound from the wireless network (all source music is captured at highest available bit rate), reasonably priced.
Pros: Sound quality improves upon the old Sony receiver, more crisp, better high end. I've always thought Yamaha audio has a glassy sound which appeals to my ear without fatigue.
Cons: 1) The remote control is fine but wishing they can find a way to design remotes with only a couple of buttons. 2) Does not display FM radio station call letters, only the frequency.
Great receiver for the price. I'm using this to replace an old amplifier with a Polk Soundbar. I am pleased with the performance and ease of use. I'm still working through the manual to figure out all the options and features. At this price point, I can't imagine anything better. As always, Crutchfield processed and handled my order efficiently.
Nice machine, but very difficult to navigate functions. Manual is poorly worded, like most are. Still trying to get everything to work so I don't have to call.
Great receiver. Always can count on Yamaha quality. Easy to set up, sounds great. On screen menus on TV were helpful and easy to navigate. Great price.
Pros: Sound quality. Up to date connections, ie. HDMI, Ipod etc. Price is right on.
Pros: Ease of use and performance.
Cons: This being my fourth Yamaha receiver I was dissapointed with the cheap feel of the volume knob as compared to the others.
Pulled this receiver out of the box and got a great quality product with very easy set up and sounds great.
I am very impressed with the RX-V375 Yamaha reciever. I found the clrity excellent and it has way more volume than I'll ever use. It has good seperation while in dolby surround and that is what I was looking for. It is limited on options which is just fine with me. I like the fact I can run all of my electronics though it and just push a button to change. I had an older Dennon so comparing would be unfare but it does put it to shame. I felt Crutchfield delivered quickly and their support staff was teriffic..
Pros: value ,clarity, easy set up, support. A great value at the price
I needed a replacement for my 2 year old Pioneer the crapped out suddenly. Budget was definitely a concern and that limited my options. I have owned many Yamaha products through the years and liked them all and after reading the 5 star What HiFi review of the rxv373 i figured i'd try the newer rxv375, even if i didn't like it Crutchfield would exchange it for another model no problem. First let me say it was super easy to set up and calibrate. I'm talking like 20 minutes for the connections and running the Ypao. that was it ,done with great results!! The sound quality was on par if not better than the more expensive Pioneer(twice the cost). I am very happy with this product and for the price it is a best buy and i will recommend it to my friends.
Pros: sound quality, easy of use and setup
Cons: could be more powerful but for the $$$ you cannot go wrong
This is a great entry level receiver. It offers the most bang for the buck. Easy to use.
Pros: Great options for the price. Great sound. Easy to use.
Cons: None. Lack of certain options is justified by the price.
I am very happy with this receiver. I wanted a receiver that delivered high quality sound but it also had to be easy to operate. My wife is very technologically challenged and quickly loses patients when equipment is complex. This system seemed custom made for us and we are both very happy. The one button scenes are very easy to program and she is happy that she can switch from TV to Music by touching one button. I am happy that the system still allows me to custom tune the sound to the specific program that we are watching, whether it is sports or an action movie.
Pros: Easy Set up. Easy to operate. Reasonable price.
I found the unit easy to understand and to use. I appreciate the fact you can hook an HDTV up to it and enjoy the sound there, too. Plenty of power for my taste. The unit is a good-looking piece of equipment. Will purchase another In the future.
Pros: Good looks, plenty power, good sound
Good priced, nice sounding receiver. I bought because I wanted to have 4 HDMI inputs (it does) and it has the USB port of the front for iPod playback. I could not get that to work but I read it should be in data mode- not a biggie since this is primarily used for a home theater setup and radio playback. Other model Yamahas have more features but this was only a couple hundred bucks and did the trick. For the price, it is an awesome buy!
Pros: 4 HDMI inputs, presets for movies and music, Pro-logic II, and an enhancer setting
Cons: Only 5.1, missing some features more expensive Yamahas have like several digital audio input/ outputs.
Unit is easy to use and has all the connections needed to produce great sound.
Pros: Not very expensive to has a nice name brand receiver.
Really like the sound. I am a beginner, but going through all the option and different sound you can have is a hassle. 90% of them make it sound trashy, but the good ones really make it shine. The lack of posts for the rear and center channels is definitely a con. All and all I am happy with my purchase.
Pros: Comes with mic auto set up Sounds great
Cons: Too many presets Lack of posts for rear and center channels.
Great value! I couldn't be happier. I bought it as 2nd receiver for a surround system in my basement and I couldn't be happier with it. My primary av receiver is the much higher end Yamaha rxv867 from a few years ago and truth be told, for less than 1/3 the price, this one offers about 95% of the features and most importantly, the sound quality of the $800 RXV867. Highly recommended!
Pros: Great value, HDMI connections, sound quality, auto set-up
Cons: Spring clip speaker connections for center and surround speakers (main L & R are screw connectors).
This piece of Yamaha equipment exceeds my expectations. Sound quality is great, options are plentiful and clean power. All of this, on a budget. I replaced an old unit with this one and it was easy plug and play. Nice job Yamaha!
Pros: Audio quality, ease of use, price!
Cons: Amplifier power is low, but sufficient.
Standard, if you want to get up to date with connecting your HDMI device to a central location and having enough amp power to power your speakers and Subwoofer.. This is all you need... Features are basic nothing too complicated.. Specs are average.. Very average system
Pros: Simple and powerful for the price
Cons: Could use better speaker banana plugs... Not enough speaker configuration and sound decoders
I bought this to replace a fairly new Denon reciever. The Denon was only a couple of months old but I was not impressed with it. The Yamaha was half of the price of the Denon and I think it is a better fit for me. The Yamaha does not have some of the features the Denon has, but I think it beats out the Denon in other areas, like actually working when it is turned on. The Denon had to be turned on and off most of the time to work. I will probalby at some point have to buy another reciever and I will most likely buy another Yamaha.
Pros: Easy setup, fairly simple to operate, and it works when you turn it on.
Cons: Does not have a feature to increase the volume for the dialog like some of the other units have.

5.1ch AV Receiver: The Yamaha RX-V375 AV Receiver is equipped with a 5-channel amplifier rated at 70 watts (into 8-ohms, at 20-20kHz, with 0.9% THD, driving 2 channels) which provides high dynamic power with low-impedance drive capability. The RX-V375 also includes a single LFE (mono-subwoofer) output for connecting a powered sub. The AV receiver employs high-quality components for great sound.
YPAO Technology: This unit employs the YPAO (Yamaha Parametric Acoustic Optimizer), which automatically adjusts the output of the speakers based on placement, performance, and the room's acoustic characteristics. Yamaha's YPAO system uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for any room, no matter where the speakers are. First it checks the speaker connections and phase of each speaker. Then it sends out tones which are captured by the microphone to analyze the room acoustics and sets a variety of parameters; such as the speaker size, the distance of the speakers, and even the volume level; until it achieves the best sound conditions for your room. Using the supplied Optimizer Microphone, YPAO performs the following checks and makes appropriate adjustments to give you the best possible sound from your system:
Note: You can also choose to manually adjust the AV receiver's speaker, crossover, & EQ settings.
Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Yamaha RX-V375 supports the following multi-channel (Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic) decoding formats.
Note: Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be selected if your audio source is connected to the AV receiver via a digital audio connection (HDMI, optical, or coaxial). Even though the AV receiver will decode 7.1ch surround sound (via HDMI), it will only output 5.1ch surround, because it lacks Surround Back channel speaker outputs.
Surround Parameters: The Yamaha AV receiver offers the following Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS NEO:6 audio adjustments.
Cinema DSP Soundfields: Conventional multichannel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha Cinema DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent soundfields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects ideally located in these separate soundfields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater. The AV receiver offers 17 Cinema DSP programs for movies, music, and games.
Note: You can change the receiver's Cinema DSP effect level (level of the soundfield effect to be added). You can adjust the level of the soundfield effect from -6 dB to +3 dB.
Cinema DSP Modes: The Yamaha RX-V375 AV receiver offers proprietary Yamaha Cinema modes so you can enjoy your movies and music even more in your home; regardless if you are using Presence Speakers, only have a two-channel speaker system, or listening through headphones.
Straight Decode: Straight Decode lets you play back input sources without any soundfield effect processing. When the Straight Decode mode is enabled, each speaker produces its own channel audio signal (without soundfield processing). When playing back 2-channle sources, such as a CD player, stereo sound is heard from the front speakers. When playing back multichannel sources, the receiver produces unprocessed multichannel surround sound.
Compressed Music Enhancer: Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3, WMA, and AAC. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.
Dynamic Range Control: The Yamaha RX-V375 employs two Dynamic Range Control functions.
Bass Management: The Yamaha RX-V375 AV receiver provides the following Bass Management settings.
Volume Setup: The Yamaha RX-V375 allows you to customize the receiver's volume levels.
Audio Inputs/Outputs: The Yamaha RX-V375 offers a variety of analog and digital audio inputs/outputs.
AM/FM Tuner: The Yamaha RX-V375 AV receiver features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset tuning. The RX-V375 lets you store up to 40 AM/FM station presets. This can be done manually or automatically (auto-preset tuning). You can set this receiver to automatically match FM broadcast frequencies in stereo, or convert the frequency to monaural for weaker stations. An indoor FM wire antenna and AM loop antenna are included with the receiver.
HDMI (v.1.4): The Yamaha RXV375 AV receiver is fitted with 4 HDMI (v.1.4) inputs and 1 HDMI (v.1.4 outputs) to deliver crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video signals. The HDMI 1.4 jacks support 1080p and 4K video signals; as well as 3D video and ARC functionality. Deep Color (30/36 bit), x.v.Color, and auto Lip-Sync compensation is also supported via HDMI. The AV receiver's HDMI jacks support 2-channel and multi-channel linear PCM (up to 8-channel) and Bitstream (Dolby Digital, DTS, etc) digital audio formats.
Analog Video: The RX-V375 AV receiver offers both composite and component analog video jacks.
Front Panel AV Input: The front panel's Video Aux input consists of a composite video input, and a 3.5mm stereo minijack input.
Background Video: The Background Video feature allows you to watch a video source while listening to a different audio source. With the RX-V375, you can select any video input, and listen to AM/FM radio or select songs from a USB device at the same time.
USB Port: This AV receiver is equipped with a front-panel USB (type-A) port that allows you to enjoy WAV (PCM format only), MP3, WMA, and AAC music files from a USB mass storage class memory device; such as your Android smartphone, portable MP3 player or USB thumbdrive (not compatible with USB HDDs). This unit can recognize sampling frequencies of up to 48 kHz on a compatible USB storage device. Your USB mass storage class device must be formatted in FAT 16 or FAT32 . You can use the receiver's on-screen menu (via HDMI) and remote control to navigate your stored music files on your connected USB memory device. USB portable audio players that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the AV receiver's USB port (5V/1A); even in standby mode.
Note: While listening to a song from a USB device, you can view a favorite video or photo from the receiver's monitor output.
iPod/iPhone Direct: The USB (type-A) port on the front-panel provides convenient connection for your iPod/iPhone so you can listen to your stored music and music apps through the Yamaha AV receiver. The iPod/iPhone USB digital connection means that the digital audio signal from your iPod/iPhone is transmitted directly to the system, minimizing noise interference and allowing use of the receiver's DAC, not the DAC in your iPod/iPhone. This results in more precise sound reproduction. You can navigate your iPod/iPhone's music via the receiver's on-screen menu (via HDMI) and remote control, or continue to use your iPod/iPhone's clickwheel or touchscreen. You can browse your iPod/iPhone's stored music content via Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Genre, or Composer. You can also control Repeat & Shuffle functions. Basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track) for music apps can also be controlled by the AV receiver's remote. Song/artist information from stored music and music apps on your iPod/iPhone will display on your connected TV (via HDMI) or the unit's front-panel display. Your iPod/iPhone's battery will be charged while connected to the receiver (max. 1A). Using the Lightning- or Dock-cable that came with your Apple device to connect directly to the Yamaha AV receiver, iPod/iPhone compatibility is as follows (as of 9/24/2013):
|Apple Device||Generation||Tested Version||Media Type||Control Type||Display Type||Charge|
|Audio||Video||Remote||iPod/iPhone||Album Art||Artist/Song Text||Track Info|
Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.
On-Screen Menu: The RX-V375 offers an on-screen menu system via its HDMI output. This clean and simple interface makes setup and other operations extremely easy. If your TV is connected to the composite video or component video monitor output, you will need to use the AV receiver's front-panel display when changing settings. You can set the receiver's on-screen menu language to English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, or Chinese.
Scene (for One-Touch Start): The RX-V375 features four Scene buttons on the front panel and remote to make operating the receiver easier. These buttons are initially set to default settings for Blu-ray/DVD viewing, TV viewing, CD listening, and Radio listening. Each can be reprogrammed to any input and any soundfield. Pressing a Scene button will automatically launch a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other Scene settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, TV Sports Viewing, and Action Game Playing. Browsing and selecting the settings is quickly accomplished by changing Input via the front panel and watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for one-time use, or they can replace the original default settings. The Scene names can also be changed.
Input Rename: You can rename each input so the display reflects the actual source; choose from 15 templates or create an original name, up to nine characters.
Display Dimmer: You can set the brightness of the front-panel display from -4 to 0.
ECO Mode: When the ECO Mode is enabled, you can reduce the receiver' power consumption by keeping the maximum volume, maximum output power, and front display's brightness low. ECO mode reduces power consumption by approximately 20%.
Timers: The receiver offers a programmable Sleep Timer and Auto Power Down function.
Memory Guard: This feature is used to prevent accidental changes to the DSP program parameter values and other system settings.
IR Remote Control: The receiver comes with an IR remote control for wireless operation of this receiver and other HDMI-connected sources (via HDMI CEC).
HDMI Control: The Yamaha AV receiver supports the HDMI control function, which allows you to operate external components via HDMI. If your TV or other external components support HDMI control, you can use the remote controls of those devices to operate some of this unit's functions, and to synchronize this unit with the operation of those devices. You can use the following operations with the remote control of any of the connected HDMI Control compatible devices.

I have never located the receiver in an enclosed space. Thus, I have no experience with your situation. [ RICHARD M Feb 11, 2014 ]
Yes, this receiver will work. Just make sure you have a sensor outside the closet door to pick up remote signal. [ AUSTIN D Feb 10, 2014 ]
do not know [ JOHN Feb 10, 2014 ]
Keep your closet door open! [ ED Feb 10, 2014 ]
I have the Bose Acoustimass 5 and this receiver works fine with it. [ MICHAEL Feb 05, 2014 ]
I tried the Bose acustimass on this receiver in the store; but found that Definitive speakers out preformed and provided better tone and sound wave. So I have added three speakers to my RX-V375 system --Separate Definitive Subwoofer along with two Definitive 8040 standing speakers which have built in subwoofers as well. I wanted full sound and I run the system on tile floor and in a room with very high ceiling---the subwoofers keeps the sound large and balanced. Recommend subwoofers be added to get the best sound and tone. [ KATHRYN L Jan 13, 2014 ]
followup: Becous the Yamaha dose not have 2 sub outs you can try getting a MonsterCable audio Y-adapter "one male to two femle coneters..this will convert 1 sub out's into 2 sub outs... [ MICHAEL L Jan 12, 2014 ]
Yes I have a powerd sub hooked up to the yamaha use your 7's sub "if its powerd to one oth the sub outs and hook up the biggest powerd sub you can afford to the other sub out and "hang on" hah [ MICHAEL L Jan 12, 2014 ]
A powered sub is NOT necessary. Make sure the speakers are set to large in the settings to utilize the Bose passive subs. [ ALAN R Jan 12, 2014 ]
I purchased the Yamaha and I run an HDMI whenever I use my laptop. I run it to the big screen tv and the sound goes to through the Yamaha to the speakers I also purchased at Crutchfied. It works great. Also, if you run into any issues, the techs at Crutchfield are just a phone call away and ready to help. [ lourdes Jan 15, 2014 ]
I would just turn up the volume on the main unit up more? [ MICHAEL L Jan 12, 2014 ]
It sounds like it should work. I am not familiar with the Samsung sound bar .All HDMI devices have an imbedded license number that is read with the handshake upon startup to prevent copyright infringement. Connecting HDMI devices in series may interfere with this process. You would have to try it. If it does not work it would likely be one of your HDMI devices not receiving a confirmed handshake, and not the Yamaha. I have had Comcast cable boxes that would only work if plugged into a tv, and would not work through any processor, Comcast designed them this way. This handshake issue only exists with HDMI and not with component or other connections, Good luck. [ ROBERT Jan 08, 2014 ]
Christopher- Sorry I can't be of help. I have not yet connected my receiver as I'm still in the process of getting speakers and a new dvd recorder myself.. Don [ DONALD Jan 08, 2014 ]
You sound correct but I am no expert. I just got mine and only use HDMI hookups sorry [ ALAN Jan 08, 2014 ]
It does convert to 5-channel stereo sound, so center speaker works. I don't know anot through the headphones or composite out. BTW, I really like this unit for the price! Notthe best out there but pretty nice to shake the walls ;-) [ TROY Dec 23, 2013 ]
I am no authority, but mine gives me all the sound I can want, and has adequate changes of power range to go from stereo to surround just by increasing the volume level. I don't know if this answers the question as you were seeking, but I enjoy mine a lot! [ WILLIAM Dec 21, 2013 ]
this receiver will do it all and honestly buying through Cruthfield is the easiest company and has the best return polcies and process. 60 days - no questions asked they e-mailed me a UPS paid for shipping lable and refunded my account it took 2 days from shipping for money to be back in my account [ MATTHEW Dec 21, 2013 ]
Sorry Adam I bought that receiver for someone as a gift. So I don't know. I do have the RXA2020 & it does display the volume, but never tried to turn it off. Gerard [ GERARD J Dec 20, 2013 ]
Well, that thing was so complicated to understand that I paid $100 locally to get it installed. That was a mistake, as I still can't hear my turntable through the unit. Or understand sound options on the TV or other sources.I don't have the problem of having the volume changes shown on the TV (as I understand the problem). As I said, I was not able to figure out the connections, so who knows? One would think that even older farts like myself would be able to understand, but it only gets worse!!Can you help me with another bloody annoying problem? - Every morning I get a message on the TV which says there is an update, which gives me supposedly an option to ok or not. It blocks the TV signal for about 20 seconds, and states if I do not ok it, it will repeat daily. Which it does, because I cannot understand how to ok i. the local installer has been a lot less than helpful.Like Adam N, I would like to send the damned thing back! Alan A Phd [ ALAN Dec 16, 2013 ]
Mine shows in the lower right corner. I know of no way to turn it off. It's weird because I like to see the adjustment on the screen. [ SUSIE Dec 16, 2013 ]
There is a on screen display when I change volume. The weird thing is that it have not noticed it before. I only saw it when I read the message. The display is on the very lower right side of the display and is pretty small. It displays when I change volume and stays visible for about 2 seconds after the adjustment. I have spent a few minutes with the options and set up and hav not foun a way to turn the pop up off. I hope this helps your decision. [ PAUL Dec 16, 2013 ]
Because I have a basic DirecTv receiver, there are no HDMI outputs on it, so I am unable to connect HDMI cables from my RX-V375 to my tv. Sorry I can't be of help. [ GREGORY Dec 16, 2013 ]
Although this receiver was a gift to our daughter, I helped set it up. I do not ever remember the on screen display popping up on her TV. We used the HDMI output as well and control her Sony Bravia HDTV and Comcast cable box with the remote. It was very easy to set up and has performed well. I hope this helps. [ JOHN Dec 16, 2013 ]
Yes it does. I'm really happy with mine! Thanks [ KELLY Dec 16, 2013 ]
There is a really little volume display on the bottom right hand corner of the TV when I adjust the volume. Doesn't bother me and I actually like it. It is so small, you really need to look for it. Not obtrusive. Otherwise I really like the receiver with one exception - the display is a bit fuzzy. [ ALAN Dec 16, 2013 ]
This receiver does not have a phono input. This means you will need an external phono pre-amp to connect to this receiver. You can find these here: http://www.crutchfield.com/g_50500/Phono-Preamps.html?tp=204 You'll want to be sure to get a pre-amplifier that will match with your turntable (moving magnet or moving coil design). If you have any questions about this, or want to discuss other receivers that would work directly with your turntable feel free to reach out to our Advisors by phone or online chat.

Danny, I don't have experience with Apple so I cannot comment!! But, I made my receiver connection to a 72" Samsung TV adding 5.1 Definitive speakers with built in base for a power house of sound!! I like to listen to my music full throttle and don't want to miss a note when I go outside to get the mail. Very happy with equipment as the RXV-375 supports all my requirements, highly recommend. [ KATHRYN L Dec 12, 2013 ]
I do use Apple TV with mine, connected through the hdmi inputs in back. The YPAO is proprietary to Yamaha and is programed into the unit. Plug the mic in and let it do it's calibrating. It is not something that can be removed and used for other products. [ ALAN R Dec 10, 2013 ]
Apple TV (ATV) connects to one of the HDMI In (HDMI 1, 2, 3 or 4) ports just like any other source device. Your TV of course will be attached to the HDMI OUT port. The HDMI cable will transport sound and video from ATV to the reciever which sends video to the output HDMI port (your TV) and the sound to the the attached speakers. Works just fine with this receiver. As for the sound bar, I'm not sure about that since I don't have a sound bar. I'm using all individual speaker units along with a sub-woofer attached to the speaker connections. I believe though that since most sound bars do not connect to speaker connections but to low power Aux outputs, that the calibration program would not recognize the sound bar and therefore not include it in the calibration. The calibration program seems to be intended for speakers directly attached to the amp's speaker posts and not devices attached to Aux outputs which could be sound bars, recording devices, remote speaker systems or various other audio devices.

I dont have an Apple TV box , but it looks like "audio opticle out" from V-375 to "audio opticle in" to the Apple TV box Then an HDMI cable from the box to the TV set. The YPAO should calibrate the sound bar [ MICHAEL L Dec 10, 2013 ]
I use my Apple TV connected to it via HDMI. It works fine with no issues. I also have a Roku and an Xbox One connected to it as well. I'm not sure the YPAO would calibrate sound bars but I'm not sure why it wouldn't. It should adjust the sound according to the speakers you have connected. [ CRAIG M Dec 10, 2013 ]
This receiver does not have HDMI standby pass though. [ Jeff Dec 06, 2013 ] Staff
